Unfortunately, this was not the case for Lindsey Molyneux of Camden, North London.  This story featured in a Daily Star article on 6th November. Her 16-month daughter was sound asleep in her cot when the foot-long rodent pounced on her. The terror struck and bit the little girl through her pyjamas on her arm, leaving her bleeding and crying when her mum found her. After going to hospital, it was later discovered that there was indeed rats in the house and it was indeed a rat bite and pest control services had been sent quickly to sort out the situation.

In March this year, a similar story (also featuring in the Daily Star article) happened to seven-year old Francesca who was also bitten by rats in the house while sleeping. She was woken up to some creature crawling up her leg. This time, the rat left wounds on her face! She woke up crying and then went to the hospital where she was given antibiotics and recovered soon after.

Although these incidents, taken from an article in the Daily Star, 6th November 2013, were not life threatening, it shows that more and more stories like this are happening.  Rats begin to move indoors in October/November time when the weather turns nasty and cold and the rain starts pouring. We need to be careful and act quickly. We don’t want this to be happening to you. If you are in any doubt, call Surekill now on 0800 0684577 for a free consultation and quote.
