Abstract
<table style="width: 100%; border-width: 0px" border="0"><tbody><tr><td colspan="1" rowspan="1"><strong>BACKGROUND:</strong> The majority of rat problems in cities are thought to be related to defective sewers, and the use of anticoagulant rodenticides in such places is often implemented as part of regular urban rodent control. Knowledge pertaining to the resistance status of sewer rat populations is non-existent, which may be leading to control problems in cities. It has become crucial to provide knowledge on the prevalence of resistance and how different control strategies have affected its prevalence among sewer rat populations. The prevalence of resistance w...
