Two feet long rats create scare in Britain

Two feet long rats have created a scare in Britain these days. The giant rats are immune to poison and infiltrating in many homes in Britain, The Sun reported today.

The work from home culture during the pandemic has created this problem as it prevented trash pickups from businesses and households.

It seems shocking but a fact that 200 million rats are swarming over Britain at this time _ three times more than population of Britain.

Rats and scavenger seagulls are seen around the overflowing trash cans with rotting waste. Thus, health risks are growing amongst people in England in this situation.

“It’s the most annoying thing when you pay your council tax and then you come home and your bin hasn’t been collected,”¬†Conservative Councilor Paul Wadsworth said.

The pest control experts pointed out that giant rats are penetrating into homes through breaches in exterior walls, drainpipes, and lofts.

Importantly, when trash cans are not emptied, people can find rats lounging in their kitchens or bedrooms.

Moreover, rats can swim and they go into sewers to appear again when the toilet lid is removed.
