    A claim for medical treatment received due to a rat infestation problem will require Stoke-on-Trent ‘no win, no fee*’ lawyers

    The city of Stoke-on-Trent is located in the Staffordshire county in England is the site of an animal infestation that may become the subject of a compensation claim. The local council has revealed that its pest control officers have had to deal with an estimated 600 rat infestations in the city during this year. Animal experts have said that the rat problem will only get worse over the Easter holiday period with factories and offices being left empty. The Stoke-on-Trent City Council has said that in the respective months of January, February and March it received around 200 calls concerning problems to do with rats.

    The pest control officers have said that on average each year it gets an estimated 2,400 rat-related calls. The British Pest Control Association has released figures for the 2013 year that the Wes Midlands region had to deal with 48,555 rat infestation problems which is the highest number in all of the regions in the UK. The pest control authorities have said that the reasons for the increase in rat infestation problems is due to the wet weather, food being dumped, garden bird feeders and people engaging in fly-tipping.

    According to local pest control companies, the rats are mostly located in gardens and hedgerows and these companies have supported the local council’s figures of a rise in demand for rat treatments. They have also suggested that the wet weather has contributed to the food supply for the rats with rubbish being swept into the sewers. Some pest control companies have focused on the prevalence of bird feeders being the cause of the increase in rat infestations with bird food dropped on the floor attracting rats to homes.

    The pest control registry has said in regards to the situation that anywhere there is little human traffic with dry space is ideal for rats so factories and warehouses are particularly at risk of rat problems.
