Adult females are able to reproduce at 3-5 months old, can produce up to five litters each year with about 5-8 young in each litter.
Female adults will produce about seven litters per year and will mate again about 18 hours after giving birth to her litter of about eight pups.
Parks with natural and artificial ponds, or reservoirs may also be infested.
Other vegetable, melon, berry, and fruit crops occasionally suffer relatively minor damage when adjacent to infested habitat such as riparian vegetation.

The older rodenticides, formerly referred to as acute toxicants, such as arsenic, phosphorus, red squill, and ANTU, are either no longer registered or of little importance in rat control.
These techniques include improving sanitation for the affected location, eliminating hiding places, exclusion and may also include lethal methods such as traps and rodenticides.
