Mutant super rats – BBC radio Leeds

Owner of Surekill Pest Control, Kevin Moore, last week featured on Wes Butters show on BBC Radio Leeds talking about the presence of a mutant super rat in the local area. He gave us information and pointers on how we can avoid getting infested with rats this wintertime.

The conversation began talking about the so called mutant super rat which has been in the news recently because they are becoming more and more popular in the UK. They are also becoming immune to the regular poisons that homeowners put down in order to kill them. ‘In Africa, they can grow up to 3 feet long’, said Kevin. Luckily, this mutant super rat hasn’t reached Britain yet so that’s not something to worry about for the time being.


However, Kevin did mention that we need to be careful of the normal rats that grace us with their presence every winter. Here at Surekill we are receiving more and more calls each year of rat sightings. Homeowners are realising that poisons bought from the supermarkets and specialist shops do not work as well as rats begin to become immune to them. Rats need professional assistance. Their droppings are more discrete than mice and you tend to hear them before you see them, especially as they are nocturnal.

Therefore, you need to take extra care and if you think you may have a mutant super rat or even a standard rat infestation, call Surekill quick and we will sort it out. Using cutting edge methods, our team are highly qualified with over 20 years experience in the business. There is really no one better to call.
