    18-INCH super-rats invade Luton

    Rats are a bit topical with me having recently had to trap and kill 7 that had made a home in the ceiling above the kitchen extension. Did a good job because its been a few months now and they haven't come back. In the nick of time too as the last one was a pregnant female.

    Still even the biggest was only about 8 inches long. Can't compare with these beasties ....rats as big as cats ....well kittens anyway :


    Horror as 18-INCH super-rats invade Luton town centre - and they're smart enough to take food without stepping into traps


    A plague of intelligent super-rats has invaded Luton town centre and have learned to avoid traps while foraging for food.

    The latest super-rats, photographed by pest control expert Tony Margiocchi, avoided getting snared on the deadly trap despite nibbling on the food.

    Mr Margiocchi was staking out a lane way in Luton when he spotted the first of the monster rats.



    The cunning rat has learned not to put his front paws on the trap's pressure plate, allowing him to feast on tinned fish without having his neck snapped by the spring-loaded device


    According to Mr Margiocchi, conditions are perfect for breeding rats.


    'I don't think I can blame Luton council for the rat problem. The budget for street cleansing might be under pressure, but the council didn't dump fast food wrappers all over the place.
    'We have everything we need to sustain a massive rat population. All they need is food and water. There is plenty of food dumped on the street on a nightly basis and the bins are overflowing.
    'Everyone who dumps food on the street is responsible for this super-rat problem. We need to all work together to face this problem. Not dumping food is a good start but we also need to target rat populations with poison. That is the only way to keep them under control.'






    meanwhile, in other parts of England :













    Hate to think of the racket one of these would make running around the ceiling.

    Good idea, but let's make it for real not like just a few dropping here and there.
