    Eliminating tree rats

    Buck in Maui, I have busy rats in Waialua in a avocado tree eating 1/2 the skin off of the avocados. I am on the edge of farm land. Have seen barn owls fly in at night to eat rats, but obviously not enough barn owls to solve problem. I had thrown rat poison (D-Con) at base of tree last year and there were no chew marks on avocados. This year thought I had solved the problem, but they are back and only 1/8 of tree producing fruit, so loosing any is painful after waiting a year. How could I get more barn owls to go after the rats? The barn owls are amazing to watch fly in. Thanks
