Urban Rat Surveys.
Littig, K. S.; And Others
This guide is for use in the classroom and field training of inspection and operational personnel who serve in planned community rodent-control programs. The urban rat survey may be used as the primary means of obtaining information on rat infestations and the conditions favoring rat populations in urban communities. It provides the data necessary for planning an action program to improve the human environment and make it less suitable for rat infestation; also as a basis for later evaluations of program progress. It is suggested, however, the survey not be used as an end in itself and not be undertaken unless its findings will be used to meet the needs of a community. Detailed information is given on the characteristics of urban rat surveys, basic units in the survey and operational program, comprehensive vs. sample surveys, personnel requirements, survey procedures and equipment, premises inspections, data collection, and mapping. The pamphlet concludes with a rat survey quiz of 25 questions. (BL)
