When baiting rodents with something like the T-Rex Snap Trap you have a variety of options. If they are already attracted to something in the environment (ie: fruit trees, vegetable garden, pet food/pantry in the home) you normally catch them the fastest using those same materials. Often rodents are looking for nesting materials like cotton, so using a dot of Elmer's glue and putting the cotton ball down in the bait cup can help attract them, as well as force the rodent to tug on the trap a little ensuring it sets on the rodents head. Other items that they find alluring over the traditional peanut butter or cheese options include wet cat food, tuna packets/cans, cookies, small pieces of fruit, bread with drops of vanilla on it, etc.
