Rats on the rise in Bracknell
Posted on 27th April 2020 at 17:47
Covid -19 viral outbreak has had a major impact across all towns and cities in the United Kingdom, this includes our town, Bracknell.
As a result, we have all seen people’s behaviour change as a result of the lockdown and the restrictions presented to us. With social distancing and only being able to go out for essential food and exercise, we have seen minimal human presence on the streets around Bracknell, which in turn with the closure of food and hospitality outlets has resulted in a massive reduction of food supply for rats and other pests, it has been well reported that this has seen a change in behaviour for rats meaning they are venturing into broad daylight in search for food.
As mentioned the fact that the hospitality industry has been hit hard by the closures and the huge decrease in the opportunity for us to purchase takeaways, visit pubs and restaurants, means the amount of waste which the rats scavenge in Bracknell has literally reduced overnight. With little food waste to eat rats are resorting to desperate measures and this is pushing them to search for food and invade our homes.
