USA, Ventura, CA – November 16, 2012
From the people who brought us the first humane, battery operated electronic mouse and rat trap comes the latest progression in the war against rodents. The Raticator is a flashlight battery operated trap that humanely eradicates both mice and rats.

The dreaded rodent season arrives as the weather gets cooler and the rodent’s food supply of seeds and bugs becomes sparse. Warm homes with plenty of food to scrounge on are exactly what rodents are seeking. Once they move in we are faced with choosing how to eradicate them. There are many options on the market; however, most are either messy, inhumane or archaic. The Raticator utilizes patent pending technology and other advances in the war against rodents that overcomes the many shortcomings of poison, spring traps and glue boards.

The Raticator has a new look offering much higher battery life and new technology that provides a 100 percent humane kill rate with the new Raticator Infrared Max model.

According to Daniel West, marketing director at ATrap ‘‘These new units have far enhanced electronics over the previous model as well as a more effective kill pad design. They are created for durability and utilize solid state electronics for years of reliable performance.”

Two models are offered in the Raticator lineup; the Raticator Infrared Max which utilizes a patent pending infrared detecting system to sense the presence of the mouse, rat, or other rodent. [Editors’ Note: Coming Spring 2016: Raticator Bluetooth S-Plus.] This technology improves efficiency and extends battery life to 1 year or 50 kills. The Raticator S-Plus is designed for affordability and offers solid state electronics to deliver a deadly, but humane shock to either mice or rats. It will humanly exterminate 50 rodents or last approximately 6 months in standby mode.

ATrap, Inc., headquartered in Ventura, CA is the sole distributor of Raticator in the United States. The Raticator is the result of more than two decades of product enhancements since their first battery operated rat trap appeared on the shelf. “The Raticator is very user friendly,” West affirms, “simply add batteries and bait, turn it on and it is ready for action! It’s the ultimate option in rodent control.” The Raticator is available on their website and at retailers across the nation.
