      The present day rodent management technologies are mainly based on the use of rodenticides, which may be regarded as a short-term solution to the problem. However, for sustainable management of the pest rodent, other options based on crops/cropping systems, ecology and the behaviour of pest rodents need to be integrated as a makethemworkforyou.com: R.S. Tripathi. Rodent Species in South Africa. Rodents not only damage food but they may also transmit many harmful diseases. They are increasing in numbers day by day and in South Africa you can find them in big numbers whether it is mice or rats. Mostly there are two major variants of rats that are causing the damage i.e. the Black Rat and the Brown Rat.

      This rodent management paradigm has now taken center stage in Asia, Australia, and eastern Africa (Stenseth et al , Brown et al , Sluydts et al , Jacob et al ) and is a common theme in the contributions in this book.

This book is a collation of contributions from Asia, Africa, Oceania (Australia and New Zealand), Europe, Rodent pest management in eastern Africa book North America. The advent of ecologically based rodent management (EBRM) has stimulated the progress summarized in this book. Ecologically Based Rodent Management (EBRM) Ecologically based rodent management has now taken center stage in Asia, Australia, and eastern Africa for management of rats in agricultural systems.

This has not always been the case. In the s, a wide range of chemical rodenticides became available on the global market. The "three now cosmopolitan commensal rodent pest species" (the brown rat, the black rat and the house mouse) have been dispersed in association with humans, partly on sailing ships in the Age of Exploration, and with a fourth species in the Pacific, the Polynesian rat (Rattus exulans), have severely damaged island biotas aroundClass: Mammalia.
