Laboratory evaluation of poison base for the control of funambulus pennanti

Laboratory evaluation of poison base for the control of funambulus pennanti

Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences Animal Sciences 89(3): 227-234

F. pennanti, the northern palm squirrel preferred wheat in its different forms out of 10 cereals and oil seeds offered. Squirrels were selective feeders since of 11 forms, i.e., whole, cracked roasted and flour wheat was most palatable in 7 trials followed by bajra (3 trials) and jowar once. The addition of vegetable oils, salt and sugar does not enhance bait acceptance. They preferred sugar in comparison to salt, and arachis and sesame oils. Whole wheat is recommended for use as a poison base for the control of F. pennanti. In the absence of wheat, cracked bajra which is the next preferred bait can be used. The calorific requirement of F. pennanti ranges from 16.18-34.98 k cal/100 g body weight/day when the bait is provided in single food choice.
