Rodent pests and their control
Rodents represent the largest order of mammals and include rats, mice and squirrels. They carry diseases and are major pests in agriculture (e.g. in rice fields), of stored products, and in urban environments. This book is the only current volume that provides a comprehensive review of rodent pests and their control. The first four chapters establish the pests status of rodents and the need for control. The following six chapters review the principles of rodent control methods and their evaluation, the nature of resistance, and how to assess damage. The final chapters consider the practice of rodent control, including the problems of extending technology to smallholders and evaluating potential environmental hazards. The book is aimed at advanced students of pest management and applied zoology, as well as practitioners in pest control.
