If you're referring to the poison, Bromadialone is used for Warfarin-resistant rats.

Resistance to warfarin in rats occurs when there is a genetic mutation in their gene code. Which gets passed on when they breed so it makes other rats immune too. This is called natural selection

Evolution, but by artificial selection, so to speak. Imagine a colony of rats. They all have very tiny differences in their genes, and as these differences neither help nor harm the rat, they are passed along to their offspring as normal. If someone tries to poison the colony with warfarin, many will die. If any rat's genetics give it a resistance to the poison, then these rats will survive, and pass the resistance genes onto their offspring. Some of these may even be more resistant, etc. So it can be that the entire colony is mostly unaffected by the poison.

Yes, over use of antibiotics can cause bacteria to become resistant.

Rat poison has a variety of elements that can kill rats. These elements include warfarin, diphacinone, bromadiolone, brodificoum and others. The kind used in home is called anticoagulant rodenticide.

Mice hate Warfarin pellets. Mice and rats do not have the ability to vomit so poison works very well on them.

becomes resistant to antibiotics mostly by the misuse of antibiotics

it inherited the allele that made it resistant

Copper is sufficiently resistant but alloyed become more resistant and strong.

No. It does not affect the warfarin.

Arsenic. But modern rat poisons use the chemical warfarin, which causes internal bleeding in rats.

It has become resistant to many antibiotics.

Protecting the public health from rats is important because rats can and do carry and spread diseases. Many communities are taking steps to keep rats away from homes and people by implementing new trash regulations which include rat resistant trash bins.

The parasite has become resistant to chloroquine. The mosquitoes has become resistant to insecticides. The drive to eradicate malaria becomes less intensive, when you do not get the reward in the form of success.

Genetic mutations in the bacteria can cause them to become resistant to particular kinds of medication. As the reproduction rate of bacteria is so high, even just one bacteria with the gene that causes resistance can quickly multiply to become a strain of bacteria which are all resistant.
