Is trapping Rats similar to Mice?

While mice tend to investigate new objects in their territories, rats are generally suspicious of objects that suddenly appear in their midst. Rats may ignore newly-placed rodent bait and traps for days or even weeks, especially if other food continues to be routinely available to them. The curious mouse may accept bait more readily; but to be effective, many closely-spaced bait offerings must be placed due to the mouse’s smaller home range.
