Humane Trap Ideas? Answered

Okay, so we've got critters in our attic...Probably Wolf Rats or something....I've tried using a large bucket with a board ramp. On top of the bucket I've got a towel laid across the top. For bait, I've used bread with peanut butter. My trap idea just doesn't seem to work.... The animals steal the bread without fallin' in ! They're smart ....

Any other ideas? Thanks! :)

Punch a hole in the bottom of a soda can, smear it with peanut butter and string it across the bucket top. They try and jump on it or reach it and the can spins and into the bucket they go. For a less humane way put water in the bucket they will eventually drown.
