    Best bait for rats and mice is GoodNature Possum Paste - cinnamon flavour - stable - wont dry out or go mouldy - in the house, garden, shed or up in the bush
    Pulled these two out of traps in the bush this morning - along with a couple of rats - available from Farmlands or similar outlets - in a pocket size pouch so easy to squeeze onto the trap without it tripping

    @Time-out that looks like a nice set up, first one gets the trap and any others get the poison? And the smell of the poison is going to lure them all in

    They are multi feed Ditrac poison blocks - the triangle blocks are a new Ditrac Extreme block - a more concentrated dose of Diphacinone anticoagulant - Contrac would be much better as it is a single feed poison - the bait station is a useful tool to house a trap and some poison

    When we were growing up mum used to alternate between peanut butter and chocolate chips, both worked very well.

    Me too... they seemed to wise up after no. 3 though. Those traps work well, especially with peanut butter!

    Can't explain it but since changing from melted cheese to peanut butter we have caught 2 by the foot, great entertainment releasing them in front of the neighbours cat......
