Rodents are considered as one of the most important pests in Egypt. They cause great economic loss to farmers (damage the growing crops, stored products, poultry and animals farm); and to food manufactures by damaging the structure and fabric of buildings. Beside, they gnaw through almost any object in their ways to obtain food and shelter. The present work was aimed to identify of Rodent composition and estimates of rodent damage were investigated in maize fields and their control through previous studies.
