We review current knowledge of invasive predator ecology and control technologies in New Zealand and the biological research, technological advances, social capacity and enabling policy by: New Zealand buildings are susceptible to infestation by black rats because of gaps under roofing in the eaves.

Rats may find their way onto the roof by climbing overhanging trees. The Black Rat does not build burrows and will nest in trees or in the voids of homes and other buildings. Among travelers who covet spectacular natural scenery, New Zealand is legendary. We focus on the South Island, whose rugged coastline encompasses a land of topographic extremes, from seaside rain forests and sapphire lakes to ice-crowned peaks, active glaciers and frigid fjords.

Seed predation by introduced rodents in different forest neighbourhoods is one of many processes that must be quantified before such management tools can be developed for New Zealand forests.

We investigated rates of seed predation in temperate rainforests in the Waitutu area of the South Island. Like national parks, New Zealand’s conservation parks are generally large areas (50,–, hectares). Most are forest parks. They include the Ruahine and Remutaka forest parks in the North Island’s central ranges, and the Richmond, Victoria and Lake Sumner forest parks in the low-altitude ranges of the northern South Island.
