Abstract
The damage that rats have caused to agricultural crops in East Africa has generally been slight by comparison with damage due to other natural causes such as drought, locusts and armyworm. But with the development of irrigation systems and with the tremendous progress that has been made in the field of insecticides during the past 20 years, losses from these major sources have been considerably attenuated. The control of rats, on the other hand, has received little attention and the 101l8ell that rats cause are therefore rapidly becoming of greater relative importance
