Laboratory evaluation of bait base for the control of sand colored rat rattus gleadowi



Laboratory evaluation of bait base for the control of sand colored rat rattus gleadowi



Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences Animal Sciences 95(4): 417-422



Since Rattus gleadowi replaces Meriones hurrianae and Tatera indica after a control operation, studies were planned on the bait preferences of this minor pest species. Results tend to reveal that bajra (Pennisetum typhoides) whole grain bajra flour and wheat grain + 2% arachis oil may be used as effective poison carriers for this sand colloured rat. Additive like sugar and salt did not improve the palatibility of the candidate bait material. Average entry requirement of experimental rodents ranged from 70.9 Kj/10 g body wt/24 hr in multiple choice test to 72.6 Kj/100 g body wt/24 hr in single choice tests.
