We get asked a lot, “what’s the best rat bait?” so today we’ll be exploring what food rats look for and why our rat traps are designed to be used with the Goodnature chocolate based rat bait. We decided to meet with lure expert Christine, to better understand what rats are looking for when they visit your trap and how you can better lure them in. She’s got an MSc in Molecular Biotechnology and a PhD in Plant Molecular Biology, so she’s the perfect person to help us out.
If you’re thinking of trapping a rat, the first question is often, “what do rats eat?”. Knowing what the best bait to lure them in with is critical, so it’s really important we get this right when trapping. We discuss what rats are looking for, and how you can best attract them.
We get a huge range of questions about our A24 Rat & Stoat Traps, and some more often than others. We decided to sit down with one of our customer care experts, Thomas to share the things he hears most and some tips for how you can get your trap up and running.
