Control of Domestic Rats & Mice, Training Guide--Rodent Control Series.
Bjornson, Bayard F.; And Others
As one booklet in a series on rodent control, this training guide has been developed to assist administrators, rodent-control operators, and others responsible for rodent-control operations in the training of employees in this field. Topics covered include rodents and human welfare, description and habits of domestic rats and mice, rodent-borne diseases, control of rodent populations, sanitation control, rodent killing, ratproofing, and organization of community rat-control programs. Throughout, the theme is emphasized that controlling rat populations, not individual rats, is the key to a successful rodent-control program in a community. Control measures must become a way of life in the community if rat populations are to be kept low or eliminated. Selected references and audio-visual aids are listed. (BL)
