Tales of the ‘Super Rats’ are spreading throughout the UK!
“Mutant rats that are immune to traditional poisons are on the increase in Britain, according to experts.
The rodents look exactly like any other, but eat the toxic pellets and powders without being harmed – sparking worries they could breed and lead to a big increase in the rat population.
Pest control specialists said the creatures have been discovered in Kent and the Sussex towns of Eastbourne, Hastings, Battle and East Grinstead.”

“EDINBURGH has been invaded by mutant super-rats which thrive on the poison designed to kill them, pest controllers have warned.
Residents’ efforts to rid their homes of the vermin menace are only making the creatures more resistant to toxins.
The problem was identified by a Huddersfield University research team who have been studying the rats’ DNA.
They found evidence the super-rats, capable of consuming the poison pellets “like feed”, are growing in numbers.”
