These "super rats" Norway rats are a husky, brownish rodent that can reach 16 inches in length including their six-inch tail.  Norway rats have a keen sense of sense of hearing, taste and smell.






They spread diseases as they eat and contaminate food. They damage properties by gnawing and burrowing.  A half-inch opening is all they require to gain access to your home. They can eat nearly any type of food but prefer meat and fresh grain.

Suggested Norway Rat Baits

Do you have a rat trap and need to know what the best rat bait options are? Victor® Rat Control recommends the following rat baits to attract Norway Rats.

Norway Rat Bacon Bait - Norway Rat Baits - Victor Recommended Norway Rat Baits

          ◊    Thin slice of hot dog
          ◊    Bacon
          ◊    Peanut butter
          ◊    Dried fruit
          ◊    Gumdrops
          ◊    Chocolate
          ◊    Nesting materials such as dental floss



Tying the rat bait to the trigger will prevent the rodent from licking or nibbling the bait and stealing it without setting off the trap. For rat baits that cannot be tied (e.g. peanut butter), it’s best to use small amounts.


Remember, some rats are harder to catch and are neophobic or “extra cautious” of new objects that suddenly appear in their environment.  Some rats can be extra cautious so leave an unset rat trap out for a few days before setting it with rat trap bait. This will give the rat a chance to become accustomed to it and to be caught by it.
