The most commonly found rat pest in United States is the Norway rat (Rattus norvegicus). A few instances of first-generation anticoagulant resistance have been reported in roof rats; although not common, it may be underestimated because so few resistance studies have been conducted on this species. Check the traps periodically, remove any dead trapped rats, and reset the traps.
