Baited conibears for rats

thought I would ask for a little help here. I just had a farmer and a golf course ask if I could take care of some rats for them. the ponds are all froze over and I can't seem to locate the runs ( no real defined bubble runs) anyone have any luck putting bait on the coni trigger for rats. thanks for the help

Re: Baited conibears for rats

I haven't done this in a very long time but I ran into that situation once. I made up poles with a bolt on them so I could slide the hole in the spring over the pole and it wouldn't slide clear to the bottom when I stuck the end of the pole into the bottom. I baited with a slice of apple and I kind of guessed where the dens where and I put the poles in the general area. I caught a few that way but it's not a very productive method.

turnips or potatoes on the trigger.apples turn to mush and fall off.carrots work also.try and secure the trap as solid as possible,the only thing that sould move is the trigger.
