A simple question with a simple answer. When it
comes to rats, bait doesn’t really matter. I trap
rats with lethal snap traps, and I do smear those
traps with some peanut butter. I like to think it
helps, but the traps would definitely work even
without any bait. Honestly, you can use no bait at
all, or any kind of bait, but don’t go through the
trouble of using something complicated that will
require any extra effort than the amount of effort
you’re already investing in taking care of your
rat problem. With trapping rats, it’s all about
trap location and trap placement, bait never being
an important part of the equation.
We can answer the question: Should I ever poison a rodent?
, and whether or not poison make rodents thirsty and die outside
