Broxbourne Rat Catchers (EN10): Although it isn't so common nowadays, seeing rats in your garden or home in Broxbourne isn't a pleasing thing to go through. One single sighting of a rat should not be that much of a cause for concern, but, if you notice the presence of rats more regularly or see more than one you could potentially be in for trouble as they tend to reproduce so quickly.

Pest Control Quotes

There are two kinds of rat that you might run into in Broxbourne, black rats and brown (common) rats. It is fairly unlikely that you'll ever see black rats, and if you've stumbled upon a rat recently it's likely to have been one of the more common brown rats (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (ship rats) were common at one time and were to blame for the spread of the Great Plague, they are pretty rare nowadays, however where they do occur they have good hearing, are exceptional climbers, and can produce between twenty and one hundred baby rats in a single year.
