    Actually, I'm not really sure. Have you tried all the kinds of traps? I've had a lot of success at the barn at work with the live traps.

    Get some very smelly mothballs, wrap them tight in a cloth, if you put them out loose, the rats will remove them. Also sprinkle moth crystals around the same area, the crystals are too small for the rats to remove without putting them in their mouth which they won't do.

    Other than that, get some Dcon rat poison

    I've heard that Juicy Fruit gum will kill them. They do love it but can't digest it. I prefer commercial poison baits or traps, though. They are really tough to trap. You can't allow human scent on the trap and should bait with peanut butter.
