The total of RTE food premises involved in this study (n=20). The study design of this study is cross-sectional study. Rodent's infestation at indoor RTE food premises and factor's that attract rodent's infestation were obtained. The caught rodents (n=29) species were identified based on their physical appearance and ectoparasites were collected by combing. The analysis of rodent species caught shows Rattus norvegicus (n=29) and none other species was caught by live trap. The total catchment at Pusat Hentian Kajang RTE food premises (n=l2), while for the Section 15 Bandar Baru Bangi RTE food premises (n=l 7). None Xenopsylla cheopis were obtained
on Rattus norvegicus, but other type of ectoparasite was found on caught rodents (n=5,17.24%). Total ectoparasite index presence on rodent is 0.172 (<1). Food premises inspection was conducted at the selected RTE food premises at both area. The rating's mark was between 50.6% to 90.8% when the study's inspection was carried out. In conclusion, the detection of rodents and it's infestation at indoor RTE food premises will increase risk to public health.
