Rodents (rats, mice, moles, etc..) have always been and still are a large problem in Asia and Africa. They have a huge impact on agriculture, human health and property. In Ethiopia, rats and mice eat about 15% of the stored harvest. In effect, this wastes the water that was required to produce the crop in the first place. In Tanzania, farmers can lose up to 40% of the stored maize output. The impact of rodents on food security is obvious and the volume of water lost in producing the crop is enormous. Additionally, rodents transmit more than 60 types of diseases.
