Colorado Springs Rat Removal Tip: What Bait Works Best To Trap Rats?

Reducing rat populations and eliminating and infestation requires trapping in some fashion. Rat trapping can be frustrating at times as it does require some trial and error.

The good news is that there have never been more choices than there are today. If you are persistent, you are bound to find something that works. The key to an effective rat bait is ensuring that it doesn't get stolen from the trap.

It is also important to consider the toxicity of such substances. Many people prefer to opt for less toxic substances to help protect children and household pets.

Baits and Traps

Another positive is that the type of trap does not affect the bait at all. Which ever kind of bait works best is fine with any type of trap.

Some do recommend things like bacon or dog food for rat bait. These can be effective, but they are also easily stolen. Its an easy meal for the rats that they will return to over and over again.

The best type of bait is a nontoxic substance that the rats find irresistible. It should be aromatic and sticky so that it can't be easily stolen.

Popular Baits

One of the most popular and effective rat baits is peanut butter. Its sticky enough to be smeared onto the trap and very aromatic. Rats seem to find it irresistible. Most people also have it in the pantry.

Another popular nontoxic rat bait that is growing in popularity is the chocolate lure. Rats don't often encounter chocolate and they find the smell attractive. They have trouble resisting the urge to grab a bite when they do come across it.

You can also create your own DIY lure if you have rats that seem to like something particular. If they tend to get into the pet food, mix it with some peanut butter and use it as bait. It may take a little trial and error, but you will eventually find what works.

Don't Use

It is a common misconception that rats like cheese. Unfortunately, this just isn't true. Some types of cheese don't give off an attractive scent. Some species of rats don't like cheese at all. This can be an expensive mistake that just doesn't attract rats.

Poisons are also not recommended. They leave the creature to die a slow agonizing death and they can pose a risk to other animals. Poisons tend to create a bigger [problem in the long run.
