      YOu might be able to use a bait that is less appealling to birds and more target specific, but that cant always be done... hope this helps, could answer better if knew what game you were after.

          Without knowing what you are trying to catch or type of live trap it is hard to offer advice. If the trap is a Havaheart, try putting a cover over it that extends well out to the sides, Then birds can't see the bait from above, and are less apt to hop under the cover. At least that has been my experience. The rats are another issue, can't help there.
