    Well mr ratty is still enjoying his nightly meetings with my guinea pigs inside their cage.
    Something has to be done for the safety of my dog, rabbits and guineas.
    My new neighbour is ex gamekeeper and hes noticed rats in his shed too so has put down some traps. Im hoping these will solve the issue. He said it was unsafe for me to lay traps due to having a dog.

    I hope your neighbour can resolve the issue, an gamekeeper should be used to dealing with unwanted rodents

    try changing bait to something different. Also don't handle the trap with bare hands ..... they will be deterred by human smells

    It is a rat sized trap? Not mouse size?

    The only "humane" (I dont think it is) trap I had success with catching rats was a big 1.2m marten trap, with 2 doors. Rats are clever, going into a dead end isn't something they do easily.
