I always use fishy-smelly baits, tuna, sardines, mackerell etc, do a search (top right of screen) for "RAT BAIT" you should find loadsa info already on here.

Doughnuts with a brick over it. They bring their entire families with them for that..

i know that this sounds odd but try putting a tray of brown sugar outside the hole and burn it with a blowtorch, that usually brings them out on my shoot after about 10 minutes.

another way is to pierce a tin of dog of cat food with a screw driver and then use that as bait, they tend to hang around a bit more because they cant get to the meat.

Try this allways worked for me:


Chicken bits (raw)
Leave in bin liner for a week or so (outside)
Microwave for 5 minutes before you go
Place bits where the rats run
Place chicken over bait & secure with sticks
Apply tomato sauce
Pace back to your shooting position
Zero your kit on the bait

They will be out in a flash
Let them try for a while until they feel safe
Then Blat the *******s

BTW I use a spare microwave in the Garage, the smell is sickening

I used this method for Daylight shooting, best bag was 40 in 3 Hours,

Just remember to clear away some dead ones.
They will allways come back & consume there mates as well!

Having said that I have not seen a Rat for 3 Months, they just
vanished?????

Good Luck

or you have cleared that certain area that they operate in , i have a shoot on a farm/stable site , i have moved about 3 times around in different places because i had cleared the area , max i got in one area was 32 , moved to a new area and got about the same , on a new area now and im on 27 , but still very active , and all im using is horse feed , they just nosh it like wild fire , but if use something different i might attract them in masses so i know what head count i have got..... cheers for your ideas and will try this out...peter

What was that tip to get sandwich crumbs and tea out of your keyboard again?

Could you warn us to put drinks and nibbles down before doing that again,

Cooking those chicken scraps sounds a bit gross, I find my rats love peanut butter, chicken corn and tuna flavour cat food. Best to use something that is not easy for them to carry off so they are forced to sit and eat the food there and then, thus making it easier to obliterate them!:D

Yes that is a bit Gross, but it works better than anything else
& I have tried all manner of baits.

Young / Fiesty / loves shooting, Sounds like my kind of girl!!
