Influence of zinc phosphide in birds at areas of anti-rodent campaigns during XX century


Belik V.P. South Federal University, Rostov-na-Donu


For a long time many rodents are considering as agricultural pests. So they are the objects of target pest control. In XX century rodents extermination became the most active when their place in some zoonoses circulation was found and effective methods for pest control were worked out. At first it’s concern little ground squirrel (Citellus pygmaeus), that formerly much damaged crop-growing in steppe zone and also it was the main plaque host. In XX century water vole (Arvicola terrestris), great gerbil (Rhombomys opimus), sand rats (Meriones meridianus и M. tamariscinus) and also murine rodents, have became the objects of special attention of deratization service. Wide-area company has quite often been waged against them especially in the years of rodent’s high numbers and outbreak of epizooty. At the same time practically nobody studied the influence of pesticides, used for pest control against aforesaid species, to other beneficial animals or only their slight mortality from pesticides was postulated. However available data analyses indicates supremely hazard effect of some wide applicated acute rodenticides, particularly zinc phosphide, on all inhabitants of desert-steppe and near- water ecosystems.


Infrasound use for ornithological safety


Zvonov B.M. Doctor of Biology, A.N. Severtsov Institution of ecology and Evolution, RAS


Possibility of infrasound use for bird scaring from important large-area economic objects are considered in this article. It’s suggested to use of wind power-station with, forced rotated with speed that is necessary for creation of bird uncomfortable conditions.


Synanthropic flies (numbers accounting and control of pre-imaginal stages in soil)


Dremova V.P. professor, E.I.Martsinovsky Institute of Medical Parasitology and Tropical Medicine, I.M.Sechenov Moscow Medical Academy


The general information, concerning biology and ecology of preimaginal stages of synanthropic flies and necessity of larvae and pupas counting in soils of human settlements and also methods of their breeding place investigation are presented in the article. 


Cold-blooded tetrapods as pest species. Report 2. Methods of protection against venomous amphibians and reptiles (Amphibia, Reptilia)


D.V.Semenov , Cand. Sc. (Biol.), A.N. Severtsov Institution of ecology and Evolution, RAS


Human struggle with venomous amphibians and reptiles has got centuries-old history. Scientific approach to this problem solving are working out for already some decades. The very different methods and approaches have already been tried out, for example on two venomous snakes Trimeresurus flavoviridis in Japan and Boiga irregularis on Guam island, the most bright and actual examples of that work. Nevertheless amphibians and reptiles pest control methods and experience are still insufficient specific and effective and so this work can be considered as preliminary.


New insectoacaricide «Abzats» with wide action spectrum


M.N. Kostina, M.M. Maltseva, E.A. Maltseva, E.A. Novikova, Yu.V. Lopatina, M.M. Akulin, A.A. Afanas’ev


New insectoacaricide «Abzats» in the form of emulsion concentrate on water base with pyretroid lambda-cyhalothrin(5%) as active agent are worked out. Due to its original composition and thorough selection of components this insectoacaricide is characterized as more (2-6 times) effective in comparison with its analogs, wide action spectrum (rat mites, wasps, ants etc.) and less toxicity because of operating concentration decreasing. 


Ethic questions concerning rodents pest control


Popov S.V. Cand. Sc. (Biol). Moscow Zoo


This article is devoted to ethic questions, that can emerge in deratization work. The author presents the main world ethic principles of animals treatments in captivity and in experiments, ethic principles of pest control work and criteria of estimation of humanity of pest control methods. It’s recommended to work out the strategy of animal welfare in Russia, including pest control work.
