we used alfalfa. you can get pellets too.

try putting a food dish in the trap with water, too, and see if you can
train him to go in there. Regular hay might make a nice nest too.

I'm over run with them; I think they're what trimmed some of my
blueberry bushes back to nubs. Prefer them to moles though; have
thousands of those.
