Kirriemuir Rat Catchers (DD8): While it is not that common these days, finding rats in your home or garden in Kirriemuir just isn't a good experience to go through.

While neither of the two varieties of rat presently living in the United Kingdom are native to these shores, they have definitely become firmly established. The brown rat is particularly widespread whilst the black rat just isn't so much so nowadays. Both species originated in Asia and made their way to the UK aboard ships.

Rat bites are not necessarily dangerous, but must be avoided where possible, and they can turn nasty or even fatal if they turn into "rat bite fever".

  • Joint Pain or Swelling
  • Rash
  • Headaches
  • Swelling or Redness
  • Vomiting
