Rats and Mice- Making Lives a Misery.

I am distraught for my residents living in Wednesfield North as there are a number of places that are being pressed by rats. Its one thing seeing them out and about on the streets. Its another experience altogether if they are nesting and making their home in the eaves, cavities and loft space of your property.

I am currently trying to get these vermin treated at a number of sites in my Ward. Its not an easy thing to do. The damage these animals can do to property is one thing. But the mental health and physical damage they are inflicting on my residents is very much another more serious thing.

Residents are sleepless, in tears, and are suffering mentally, Young and Old alike. As these animals move out of, rough outside living seeking substantial shelter in homes.

I want Wednesfield North residents to know, that I and my fellow Councillors are doing all we can to ensure that these rats are dispossessed of their current lairs and shelter. I am not naming roads or streets or property, but I want you to be aware that there are actions being taken.

I am also aware that in other places there are mice problems in the Ward, and we are again pressing the Authorities on these matters. The weather is perhaps exacerbating this age old problem….but your Councillors are doing their level best.
