What is the Best Bait for Rat Traps?

The question of what bait works best for rat traps is a common one, evident from the numerous articles and opinions available online. But before we reveal the answer, let's first address some crucial aspects when dealing with invasive rats.

Understanding Invasive Rats:

Invasive rats refer specifically to brown rats (Norway rats) and black rats (roof rats), which are non-native species in the United States and various other countries worldwide. It's important to distinguish them from pack rats (woodrats), native to the US, and generally found in wooded areas outdoors. However, there might be instances where pack rats become problematic, requiring necessary action. For more information on pack rats and the issues they can cause, click HERE.

The Risks of Rat Poison:

At Bait Cage, we firmly advocate against using poisons or rodenticides. Not only do these cause prolonged suffering for rodents, but they also harm friendly species like owls, hawks, bobcats, and mountain lions that may ingest poisoned rodents. Rat poison is unsafe to keep and store, particularly around pets and children. To learn more about rat poison and its dangers, click HERE.

Understanding a Rat's Diet:

At Bait Cage, we've extensively studied rat feeding diets and behavior, categorizing them into three main groups: 1) protein, 2) carbohydrates or sugar, and 3) water. Proteins are typically found in animal meat, fat, and tree nuts, with rats known to resort to cannibalism due to their insatiable craving for meat. Carbohydrates, in the form of sugar or converted sugar, can be found in grains, seeds, and fruit. Rats and other rodents are constantly searching for food and when they find a food source, they are likely to remain in that area. This can lead to the start of an infestation.

Popular Bait Options for Rat Traps:

Various baits are commonly used in rat traps, such as peanut butter, Nutella, bacon, nuts, seeds, cheese, dried fruit, and chocolate. However, clever rats can steal these baits without triggering the traps, rendering them ineffective. Even peanut butter can be licked clean off a set trap by rats without setting it off. Some popular baits may lack a strong enough scent to attract rats, failing to lure them to the snap trap or convince them to start feeding when encountering it. Rats are especially cautious and wary of approaching new things, a behavior termed "neophobia." Additionally, some food baits quickly go stale or rotten, leading the rat to avoid the trap altogether.
