Title: Device for detecting rodents

Abstract: A device for the detection of rodents includes a generally hollow container having an aperture to allow entry into the container and exit from the container by a rodent, and an indicator to indicate that a rodent has exited the container through the aperture. Preferably, the indicator comprises a flexible barrier located across the aperture. At least part of this flexible barrier is capable of being displaced from an interior position of the container to an exterior position of the container by the movement of a rodent through the aperture from the interior to the exterior of the container. Thus, the device is able to detect rodent infestation and is able to provide positive evidence of a rodent having been present inside the container.
