Controlling vertebrate pests in museums / by Thomas J.K. Strang and John E. Dawson.: NM95-55/13-1991E-PDF

When vertebrate animals, particularly rodents, gain access to museum collections, they can soil or destroy artifacts. Prompt identification of the pest and the use of suitable methods to control it are essential. In most cases, nonchemical methods can be used to control vertebrate pests in museums; chemical methods are also discussed.
