I too have strug­gled with get­ting the rats to take the bait I have laid out for them. I find that they don’t im­me­di­ately take to a new food be­cause they are very cau­tious. It may take weeks of bait­ing for them to start eat­ing it. On my farm­yard per­mis­sion, the rats have never taken the bait of Nutella, cof­fee or cat food, but as soon as I placed grain as bait – which was what they are eat­ing any­way – they were out in force and less cau­tious. What­ever they are eat­ing in your gar­den needs to be re­moved to get rid of them, or you could use that food sup­ply to bait them in the lo­ca­tion you pic­tured in your ar­ti­cle. I’m sus­pect­ing the lat­ter will pre­vail be­cause rats wouldn’t be de­cid­ing if I can keep a gar­den com­post or not. Happy hunt­ing!!
