Avoid using too much bait! Overbaiting make it easier for rodents to grab bait and run. In addition, applying too much bait means it may easily get on the electronic plates, which can decrease the effectiveness and prevent the trap from triggering. Try to use a very small amount of sticky bait that will remain inside the bait cup, such as peanut butter or hazelnut spread.
Rodents are very suspicious of new things in their environment. To get them used to the trap, place the baited trap out without setting it for a few days. Once you’ve noticed the bait has been eaten a few times, it’s time to activate the trap. Rodents will be comfortable with their new food source and fall prey. It’s also important to avoid using bait that is easy to steal.
What do the lights mean?
 A green blinking light indicates a rodent has been caught and it’s time to empty your trap.  A red blinking light alerts you when the battery power is low and it’s time to insert new ones.
 When you turn on the trap, the light will flash green to indicate it’s working.  When a kill is made, a red light will flash every 7 seconds to let you know it is time to empty the trap.  When the batteries are running low, the red light will blink rapidly to let you know the batteries need replaced.
 Each time the trap catches a rat, the light on top of the trap flashes green to indicate a kill.  When it's time to change the batteries, the light will flash red.
Note: If you have the old version of the Rat Zapper® Classic (with the plug), the light will flash red for all alerts instead of green.

 When you turn the trap on, the light will flash once to let you know it’s working.  A steady blinking green light indicates a rodent has been caught.  A steady blinking yellow light means your trap is full and it’s time to empty the kill chamber.  A rapidly blinking red light indicates there could be a problem with your trap.  A slow blinking red light alerts you when the battery power is low and it’s time to insert new ones.
