Abstract: The economic importance of rat infestations in coconut groves has not been investigated to any reliable degree, although its significance is often forgotten or ignored in most copra producing areas. However, in highly populated atolls where dense populations rely heavily on copra production, the rat is considered a very serious problem. Its competition with man for coconuts as food causes heavy losses and is a serious problem where control measures are not practiced to reduce rat infestation.
