What should I use to bait the trap?

The Mouse & Rat Attractant from The Big Cheese (STV163) can be used or a sticky substance such as peanut butter, jam, or chocolate spread. Poison baits should not be used inside this trap. 

Where should I position the trap?

Place set traps in locations where rodent activity has been known or is suspected. Check for these signs of rodent activity. Ideal locations for traps are along walls or other flat vertical surfaces where rodents run. Always place the cage trap alongside a wall. 

How should I dispose of caught rats?

The rat must be killed humanely by a quick, sharp blow to the back of the head with a blunt object, causing a minimum amount of suffering.
