Default Animal Kingdom - Rats

Only appropriate with our going to Orlando on Friday, our pantry/ laundry room now has resident rat/s. I've tried baiting professional traps with:
dog food (wet and dry), dog biscuits, banana, mayo, peanut butter.
They scoff at my feeble attempts at their demise.
Any ideas - trying bits of cooked chicken and steak fat tonight.

How about a rat trap. We used them at a place I worked years ago and they did the job. We stuck a piece of ham on them if I remember right.

You need the electronic trap that will electrocute them. It will run you 40 bucks at Home Depot. I had a similar problem with mice, until I started using one.

With the electronic traps, the bait is hidden, and if they smell food, they will be drawn in to their execution.

So either get one shipped to you, or buy one when you go to the game in Orlando this weekend. If all else fails use Amazon.

make sure you adjust the trigger to be lighter to trip with a pair of pliers.

Move. I lived in an old house on Harden St a few years ago where I personally saw to the execution of around 50 of the rodents. My roommates were equally as prolific. Those bastards are impossible to get rid of. Burn the house down and start over, sorry.
