Pest Control Quotes

There are actually two sorts of rat that you might spot in New Addington, common (brown) rats and black rats. It's fairly unlikely that you'll ever come across black rats, and if you have spotted a rat just recently it is likely to have been the more common brown rat (Rattus Norvegicus). Black rats (also known as ship rats) were common at one time and were the cause of the Great Plague, they're quite scarce now, but when they are seen they are terrific climbers, have an acute sense of hearing, and can produce between 20 and 100 baby rats in just one year.
