Abstract

Poisoning is discussed in detail and cage data are correlated with field results obtained by the use of marked rats. Results from simultaneous and consecutive choice tests were proved to be of little value. Emphasis is placed on the necessity for extensive experience for field workers dealing with cane rats, and also on the continuous collecting of reliable records and data. A distinction is made between possible economic controls for normal times and those during a plague.
