Sorry to say that it’s rarely one rat for very long. As soon as you start feeding again they will be back as never far away. As others have mentioned, humane trap or specialist bait trap. Alternatively, depending on how close you are to neighbours, an air rifle does the job although it’s understandable if that’s not for you.
