A neighbourhood in Sydney is currently plagued with big rats. The residents are asking for the government’s help in hiring a pest control in Sydney in order to solve the current vermin problem. Some of the residents believe that the problem started after the houses were demolished due to the flood that occurred on Thanksgiving Day in the previous year.
John Sullivan, a resident who is living at Cabot Street’s upper side, said that he has already eliminated 23 rats and he even killed one rat that is almost as heavy as two kilograms. He said that the size of the rat is more like a cat to him. His green compost bin now has a hole created by the rats.
Two doors from the Sullivan’s home iswhere Chantelle Anderson is living. She said that she is no longer going down to her basement because she is afraid that she might encounter the rats.
She said that she can hear the rodents scratching the walls of her home, running around the basement and the perimeter of her property.
This is when she decided to hire a pest control in Sydney and they were able to trap over a dozen rats in just a few days. The pest control company explained to her that the species of rats present in her house is aggressive and they are not afraid of humans.
She expressed her fear of the rats because of their toxic nature and how they can damage a property.
Sullivan said that it has been a year since the problem started and it is still not under control. He is afraid for her kids and neighbours as well as the people that are passing by her property. He thinks that there are two sources where the rats are coming from. The first one is an abandoned property at the back of his home while the other one are the barns close to her property that are housing horses.
Other residents think that it started when houses were demolished due to flooding last year. They are now in dire need of pest control in Sydney and help from the government to eliminate the source of the problem.
