small pieces of synthetic sponge dipped in gravy dropped where they run.They eat the 'gravy' flavoured sponge but can't poop it, it blocks their intestines and die.

So hers my tips by wooden based spring traps but get them before you have the problem.
The reason being they need weathering in so leave them out side to get wet and smelly trust me it makes a big difrance.
Next I've tried difrent bait over the years but now I'm using Alpen breakfast bars scatter around the trap don't just bait the trap!
When you have a dead one note that the scattered bait and the bait on the trap has gone this tells us there's more to kill.
The next trap happened by chance I had left oats in a plastic dust bin only to find 6 young rats had eaten thier way in through the lid
This meant they jumped in but couldn't clime out,so now I have a rat trap invented by rats!!
I hope this helps.
