This research project was based on developing sustainable strategies for rodent management in rural communities of South Africa. By working with target communities as well as the traditional rodent management service providers (Environmental Health Officers, Agricultural Extensionists, and the commercial pest control industry), the project developed novel methods and strategies that were researched and evaluated for their cost-benefits and ability to effectively deal with rodent pest problems as experienced by rural agricultural communities.
