Rodent Research and Education
Frye, Matthew; Gangloff-Kaufmann, Jody; English, Karen
In cooperation with researchers from the Center for Infection and Immunity at Columbia University, a survey of Norway rat ectoparasites and pathogens was conducted from October 2012 to June 2013 in New York City. Two manuscripts detailing the results of this work are in preparation. During the course of this research, images and videos were taken of rodents, their requirements to survive and evidence of an infestation. These resources were used to create a series of four videos on rodent biology and management. A proposal submitted to the Northeast IPM Center would support the development of guidelines to manage mice in multifamily housing and reduce health risks associated infestations.
