Table 1 The summary of rodent density, species composition and virus-carrying rate within six surveillance points since 2007 to 2016a

From: Long-term retrospective observation reveals stabilities and variations of hantavirus infection in Hebei, China

Area No. rattraps No. rats Density Virus-Carrying Rate Rattus norvegicus Mus musculus Tscherskia triton Apodemus agrarius Other species
Field 89,367 471 0.53% 1.74% 298 (63%) 29 (6%) 127 (27%) 3 (1%) 14 (3%)
Residential 92,599 2250 2.43% 0.05% 1902 (85%) 342 (15%) 0 0 6
  1. aThe number of rattraps, rats and the individual species were the summation of all surveillance points. Density and virus-carrying rate were the average of all serveillance points. The percentages in brakets represent the proportions of the induvidual species to the all rodents captured in field or residential area
