Stirling: Horrified mother discovers rat’s nest in rubbish bin

This is a mother’s stomach churning moment when she opens her garbage can and discovers nine leaping rats trying to get out.

Mum-of-six Debbie Burns was horrified as rats began to pile up in her gray bin in her village – as they desperately tried to escape.

The nine rats managed to get inside by nibbling on a hole at the top before being caught daily record reported.

Debbie claims since the clean-up of a behind-house rubbish dump – which removed 155 tonnes of rubbish from a motorway embankment at a cost of £50,000 – nearby residents have been tormented with rats.

She says her children – aged between 18 months and 17 years – could not play outside for safety reasons.

Debbie added: “I have six children in this house and I can’t let them play in their own garden because the whole street has been infested with rats since BEAR Scotland cleared the embankment behind the houses and disturbed the nests.”

BEAR Scotland, a maintenance and management company in Scotland, says “extensive fly tipping” is to blame for the problems.

A spokesman said: “When we were initially made aware of vermin issues in this area, we investigated and implemented a pest control programme.

“However, the main problem has been identified as extensive fly-tipping on the Scottish Minister’s land behind the properties in Wallace Crescent.

“As a result, in February we completed a cleanup that removed 155 tonnes of waste material.

“The job was originally estimated at over £20,000 but ended up exceeding £50,000 due to the amount of material that had accumulated.

“We have kept residents updated on the situation and provided information on how to reach us.

“It is believed that this waste was a key factor in the original problem.

“We have recently been made aware that there is an ongoing vermin situation and our specialist pest control contractors have been contracted to carry out a further program to treat the area.”

Wallace Crescent in the village of Plean has 200 houses and the side that borders the highway is about 200 to 300 meters long.

Debbie says she contacted the community last month to arrange to attend the pest control campaign, but no one ever showed up.

Stirling Council’s environmental health team visited residents last week and says they are working with Transport Scotland and BEAR Scotland to ensure appropriate pest control measures are in place to tackle the problem.

A spokesman said: “We are aware that this has been an alarming situation for residents and will be contacting council tenants directly to offer them free pest control treatment.

“In the meantime, we want to encourage people to dispose of and recycle waste responsibly, using the facilities provided either at home or at recycling yards.

“The Council regularly highlights fly-tipping as a crime that damages society and this is an example of how it can negatively impact communities.”
