I've caught a couple with a big white button glued to the trap trigger.  Why they are called pack rats.

The old style rat traps work pretty well on the packrats and other like sized rats.

 How to kill rats.
1. Go to the dollar store and buy several of the cheap tupperware type containers big enough for a rat to get inside of.
2. Cut a hole in one end for the rat to enter.
3. Put 4 tablespoons of baking soda and 4 tablespoons of corn muffin mix in the container and mix.
4. Place lid on container and put in suspected area, a weight on the container will keep it in place.
5. Rat comes to eat the muffin mix, takes in some baking soda, cannot expel the gas it creates in it's stomach, POP. Dead rat. Works on mice also.
6. No poison, other creatures can eat it with no harm.

If you see a lot of scat at the bait site you know it's working.
Take care, Duane.

Just my two cents. I have seen what antifreeze can do to humans and animals. in our house. I began hearing rats between the walls. I would knock on the walls - that had no effect on them. So I scratched on the walls like another animal predator. That stopped them for a few hours but continued on. So, I dropped poison pellets through the electric outlets along the walls. That helped for a few years, but that became ineffective. Then I put a small bowl of antifreeze in the attic away from any pets. That was about four years ago - gone.
I had rats in my "new" house when we moved in.  You'd hear them scratching in the walls in the downstairs bedroom.  Found out that they'd been getting in through a knothole in the bottom plate in the garage.  Tossed some poison blocks through the hole and sealed it with spray foam.

Unfortunately, they died in there and stunk up the place.  Figured I'd tear off the old '70s wood paneling and hang drywall, and it turned into a $10k remodel job (the basement was "finished"  by a do-it-yourselfer and they cheaped out and framed the walls against the concrete with 2x2s...sigh).  There must have been 40 years worth of trash, bones, and Christmas tinsel packed in those walls.  A real nightmare.

Time to revamp this for this years rats. It痴 been really quiet around here as far as rats go, mice have been insane after our mild winter. Killing a couple a day in traps, some days half a dozen, had 5 in grandpas old truck a few months back. Plus numerous ones drowned in water buckets and pools.

Back to the rat, neighbor asked for some supplies to try to catch one, that痴 when we started seeing signs around here. The wife and I went down to check on chickens, and I decided to pull apart the stack of pallets and wouldn稚 ya know it, lots of mice nests and she saw a rat poke its head up. Back to the house for the 9mm and snake shot (thanks to Redi) and it痴 a dead rat.
