The Rat Zapper Ultra RZU001 is a more humane way to eliminate rats as it delivers a lethal voltage shock once the rat enters. Once you bait the trap and turn it on, a rat entering will be hit with 8,000 volts of electricity for two full minutes. Requiring 4 D size batteries, you can kill 60 rats without changing the batteries.
