Seems to be a lot of rats this year and they tend to steal the bait if I use dog food. What have you had good luck with?

Put an egg on top of your trap and that will stop

Fruit Loops, miniature marshmallows and dry fishy smelling cat food. Works like a champ.

we always use old sticky halloween candy like tootsie rolls so they stick to the inside and have a strong scent.

Dry cat food with a small amount of fish oil premixed and shaken up. Not enough fish oil to make it mushy.

Canned sardines in water or oil. It works like a charm, but it is probably more expensive than other alternatives. Also, I use Z-Traps with the little Z-Cap, so that might have something to do with leaving out the rats... but ants are bad sometimes due to the protein smirk
