Electrical repellant & chew packets aren't getting rid of this/these rat(s)/mice

Tried the electrical plug repellant that emits whatever isn't working and neither are those packets that the rodents are supposed to chew through and drop dead.

We don't want to go the trap route since you have to put in a peanut butter or other bait and that bait's gonna attract a bunch of insects we don't want.

Any alternatives or is an owl or cat the last resort?

The sonic repellers donít work.

AFter consuming the rodenticide it can take 1 to 3 days for them to die. What could short-circuit the schedule is if there are a lot of rodents eating the bait at the same time meaning that many arenít getting a lethal dose. Donít hesitate to put out a lot of rodenticide.

I donít like the pellets as sometimes rodents will take the pellets and stash them somewhere. I prefer the bait blocks.

Are they eating the bait that you are putting out?
