Almost any rat trap works. The T Rex traps are my favorite because they will not break your fingers. They are very effective at capturing rats.
The Pro Lures, for Rats and Mice is also one of my favorites. It works better than peanut butter. In come cases, you have to figure out what the rats are eating and then use that as the bait. There is not a best bait for rats, as they will eat almost anything.
Once you capture the lead rat or what is called the "Alpha" rat, capturing the other rats becomes easier. Rats that are trap "curious" will be captured first. Rats that are trap "shy" will be harder to capture but can be captured using the pre bait method.
Hope this helps.
