The only effective solution I have found was rat poison. I had to use 14 packets of Rat poison to get rid of the bandicoots. They keep eating the rat poison but come back the next day. If there are too many rats then you will find rats for many days. You just need to keep feeding the rat poison.
Rat poison works best and also the trap. I prefer the trap. Some days, I have seen the rat poison missing and still no dead rats.This is also a problem if you have some pets and small kids.Rat poison packets say pests won't eat it or it is safe with pets. I am not ready to take chances since there is a beautiful labrador in our apartment. Trap works best in those cases. Buy Vada and cut it into small piece and put it in the trap. I caught one every day for more than a week. I hate to kill them after catching. So I take the trap and leave them far far away from my house. That's just me. what you want to do with that caught rat is based on the damage it caused 🙂
I have blocked the drain pipes but the problem is that my terrace is adjoined on both sides to two other terraces. While one is unoccupied, the owners of the other one keep a sack of grain on their terrace as they feed pigeons early morning. So my blocking drains is of no use as they come from there and I have seen them climb back and forth several times.
