Ramped up pest control efforts are to start today in a bid to rid streets in Plean of a rat infestation which has seen residents plagued by rodents.In Wednesday’s Observer, we told how a horrified mum-of-six discovered nine rats scratching around in her wheelie bin after they spilled on to streets when the nest was disturbed by workers clearing a massive fly-tipping site.Shocking video footage shows the rats piled into a grey general waste bin and leaping in the air, desperately trying to make an escape.Debbie Burns said that since the clean up of the fly-tip dump behind homes in Wallace Crescent – which saw 155 tonnes of rubbish removed from a M9 embankment at a cost of £50,000 – have been overwhelmed.The work to clear up the fly-tipped mess was carried out by BEAR Scotland, who will begin a six-week long treatment programme, starting today.A BEAR Spokesperson said: “Our specialist pest control subcontractor will start a comprehensive six-week treatment programme.“The site will then be monitored on a weekly basis for six weeks.“If further inspections or treatments are required at the end of the six-week programme then these will be arranged and undertaken.”Click here for more news and sport from the Stirling area.Debbie previously told the Observer: “I have six kids in this house and can’t let them out in their own garden to play due to the whole street being plagued by rats since BEAR Scotland cleared the embankment behind the houses and disturbed the nests.”Explaining the infestation, BEAR Scotland told the Observer earlier this week: “When we were originally made aware of issues with vermin in this area we investigated and a programme of pest control was undertaken.
