Many rodents cause problems in rice. The main pests are the "Rice field rat" (Rattus argentiventer), the Black rat (Rattus rattus) and the lesser bandicoot rat (Bandicota bengalensis). Various mice can also cause problems. The presence of rats is usuallt associated with tracks in mud and rat holes in bunds and levees. (Pdf of the full article is attached below).
