Rodents as reservoirs of parasites in India.
Although no natural protozoan infection was found in these field rodents, experimental Trypanosoma evansi infection has been established in all three species with high pathogenicity, and the possibility of sexual transmission was supported by the presence of T. evani in the cauda epididymal fluid of male rats.
Reproductive Toxicity of Triptolide in Male House Rat, Rattus rattus
Present studies suggest the potential of 0.2% triptolide bait in regulating reproductive output of R. rattus and reduce sperm motility and viability in cauda epididymal fluid by 80.65 and 75.14%, respectively.
Effect of triptolide on reproduction of female lesser bandicoot rat, Bandicota bengalensis
Triptolide is suggested to be a strong candidate affecting reproduction of female B. bengalensis because of its effect on histomorphology of uterus and number of uterine glands and ovary.
Rodent damage and infestation in wheat and rice crop fields: district wise analysis in Punjab State.
Efficacy of acute and anticoagulant rodenticide baiting in sugarcane fields of Punjab, India
The aim of this study was to recommend locality-specific rodent pest management techniques for sugarcane using acute and anticoagulant rodenticides during the months when maximum damage is inflicted…
Antifeeding effects of a neem (Azadirachta indica)-based formulation botanical bird repellent against the house rat (Rattus rattus)
The antifeeding effects of botanical bird repellent against R. rattus clearly show and the consumption of treated food decreased from day 1 to day 4 of the treatment at all the concentrations tested in both bi-choice and no-choice feeding tests which might be due to conditioned food aversion behaviour developed in response to the ingestion of treatedFood.
TOXICITY OF SECOND GENERATION ANTICOAGULANT BROMADIOLONE AGAINST RATTUS RATTUS: INDIVIDUAL AND SEX SPECIFIC VARIATIONS
Female rats were found more tolerant to bromadiolone toxicity than male rats, and mortality in rats of lower dose group was found more than those of higher dose group, while within one group, days to death varied among individual rats.
Effect of crude cottonseed oil containing gossypol on fertility of male and estrous cycle of female Bandicota bengalensis Gray and Hardwicke
No significant effect of treatment was observed on the breeding success of rats, diameter of seminiferous tubules, cell count and association of various germ cells in testis, and further studies may be conducted by increasing the duration of treatment or by using CCSO containing a higher concentration of gossypol.
Poultry egg components as cereal bait additives for enhancing rodenticide based control success and trap index of house rat, Rattus rattus.
Present data support the use of 2% egg albumin and egg shell powder in cereal bait to enhance acceptance and efficacy of 1% zinc phosphide bait against R. rattus.
