Over 24 trapped rats within 6% rate of trap success, this disclosure revealed that there were Rattus tanezumi (58.3 %), Rattus norvegicus (29.2 %), Rattus exulans (8.3 %), dan Bandicota indica (4.2 %). These rats were infected by worm-parasites at 91.67% rate. The endoparasites found were comprised of Hymenolepis nana, nematoda,Trichuris muris, dan Nippostrongylus brasiliensis.
