Syamsuar Manyullei*, Nurlia, Susanly Ainun Handoko, Dasrilano S. and Setiawan Kasim
Rats can be a reservoir of several pathogens that cause disease in humans. Types of diseases that are transmitted by mice to humans are generally known as zoonotic diseases. These diseases can be fatal and lead to death. Rats often cause damage to residential buildings, schools, offices and the food industry, where the presence of rats can describe slum, dirty environmental conditions, and indicate poor environmental hygiene. The purpose of this systematic review is to examine articles that explain related factors factors related to rat density. The research method used is a systematic review using the PRISMA chart. The search results obtained 12 articles which were analyzed in this systematic review process. It was found that the presence of rats describes an environment that is not maintained, dirty, slum, damp, adequate amount of food, an indication of poor environmental hygiene management. The structure of residential buildings that are not dense with rats, the presence of vegetation or grass in the garden area that is not maintained, poorly maintained sanitation, the presence of sewers or rivers that serve as garbage dumps are factors that support the life of rats to nest and breed. The biotic and abiotic environmental factors will affect the dynamics of the rat population. Considering that rats are a type of rodent that breeds. It was concluded that this review made a major contribution in developing and providing new knowledge related to the problem of rat density.[Full Text Article]
