G Ngaomei and EJ Singh
The objective of present study was to evaluate the various rodent management techniques practiced by farmers to ensure both management and conservation in the long run. The study was conducted from June 2016 to May 2017.Studies were undertaken in agricultural fields of Tamenglong District across three subdivisions such as Nungba, Tamei and Tamenglong Headquarters. In each subdivision, one village each of Zeliangrong Naga namely Namthanlong, Pallong and Phalong were chosen for the studies. The rodent management techniques such as various types of traps like Bei, S-trap; digging burrows, frightening device, scare-crow etc. were found to be more advantageous instead of chemical rodenticides in term of management and conservation of other wild life. However, in the present study out of various techniques, S-trap was the most convenient for controlling rodents.
