Chocolate - Although you only catch the female rats :-) No seriously it
does seem to work. The other one I have had success with is bacon

Cold sausage - according to Hackney's chief rat catcher, it's the biz.
Certainly works for mice.

Something which is difficult to get off the spike, warmed up bacon rind is
perfect as it's like rubber, so is the corner of a crust of bread (the end
slice), it's quite stiff and sticks to the spike better, brown bread is
prefered over white.

Or perhaps the problem is whats in your head and not actually rats or
mice?

they shouldnt.

You could always just try keeping your stink hole clean. Dont suppose
it's ever occured to you that most of us have no problem with rats?

No not that, anything but the killfile.

I wonder how some people ever got on without one!

Sigh.
