Have a search through Snaring, Trapping & Pest Control, you should find your answers in there ;)

in the area your setting the trap, what are they eating there?, as if it was a chicken run, thus eating pellets, you'd sweep up spilt pellets and bait trap with these

if just trying to catch in a rat run, try peanut butter, garlic sausage, snickers bar

By far the best bait to catch a rat is believe it or not a live mouse rodents are teritorial, if you have mice you dont have rats. I catch up live mice in very cheap live catch traps slip them into those rat traps that look like lobster pots and always get a rat or two the next morning never fails.
