Best bait for rats? What is the best bait for rats?

Rats are too big for many of the mousetraps used to kill mice; they require a different approach. There are lethal traps designed for rats on the market, but working out which ones you can truly rely upon to get the job done can be a headache. In most cases, it’s much more straightforward to use a baited live trap or poisoned bait to capture or kill rats on your property. But baited traps are only as effective as the bait you use with them. Finding an effective bait is key to ensuring their efficacy and ridding your home of rats as quickly as possible.What is the best bait for rats? What is the best bait for rats? 

Rats love high fat and high energy food. Whereas mice can subside on crumbs and scraps, rats need to eat relatively substantial meals in comparison. Food that’s high in fat and provides lots of calories can sustain a rat for longer and help them survive against the elements. Despite what cartoons have told you, cheese isn’t a very effective bait for mice or rats.

Believe it or not, one of the most effective baits available is peanut butter. Not only does peanut butter attract rats, but its consistency and texture prevent them from snatching it away from the trap and running away unscathed. The peanut butter will draw rats into live traps and keep them busy while the door shuts behind them. 

If you’re using lethal traps, the rats will have to spend some time eating the peanut butter; they can’t dash in and out. This enhances the efficiency of lethal traps and reduces the number of rats that manage to trigger the trap without dying or steal the bait without triggering the trap. Other effective baits include cubes of bacon, fruits, vegetables, cereals, and other meats.

We thought we had bedbugs but could find no evidence apart from what we thought were bites. I called Bon Accord and Gabriel was there within a couple of hours. He told us we had carpet beetle. Finding the evidence and showing us photos of the skin reaction which was exactly what we had. He advised and returned at a time to suit us to spray which was done thoroughly and efficiently. No sign of the little critters returning. Thank you Gabriel.

Top-notched pest control service!! Went above and beyond to eradicate the rats from our property. Gabriel even offered to further investigate the infestation issues for our neighbours. We found him to be extremely professional and easy to work with. We highly recommend Gabriel to anyone in need of pest control.

Gabriel was absolutely wonderful, a real life saver when I found a mouse by my bed at 10pm. He came in less than an hour and was able to catch the mouse and put my mind at rest so I could go to sleep! Highly recommend, fab service and lovely people.

Gabriel turned up with an hours notice one evening and immediately identified the issued. He works efficiently and professionally throughout with timely follow-ups to ensure the problem was resolved. Once completed he was kind enough to continue to check in to see that the issue had gone. Having had Rentokil previously that spent two years doing very little this was a complete breathe of fresh air and solved the problem in less than two weeks. We are grateful and would highly recommend his services.

We were lucky to have found Bon Accord, they responded very fast to our request and Gabriel was very helpful and informative. He made several visits and did his absolute best until the mice problem we had was gone. Highly recommended.
