Why is it important to deal with pests quickly?
Pests can be a significant problem for commercial premises in Edinburgh for several reasons, including:
- Health concerns: Pests like rodents, cockroaches, and bed bugs can carry diseases that can be harmful to human health, putting employees and customers at risk.
- Damage to property and products: Pests can cause significant damage to buildings, equipment, and products. For example, pigeon droppings can damage the structure of a building, while rodents can chew through electrical wiring and packaging materials.
- Reputation damage: Pest infestations can harm a business’s reputation, causing customers to avoid the premises and leading to negative reviews and decreased business.
- Increased costs: Commercial pest control measures, repairs, and potential lawsuits can all result in increased costs for a business. In addition, pest infestations can lead to loss of revenue if customers avoid the business or if products become contaminated or damaged.
- Legal obligations: In many areas, businesses have a legal obligation to maintain safe and healthy conditions for employees and customers, which may include provisions for pest control.
Therefore, it is important for Edinburgh businesses to take measures to prevent and control pest infestations, in order to protect public health, prevent damage to property and products, maintain a positive reputation, and meet legal obligations.

Are landlords responsible for pest control?
In Scotland, landlords are generally responsible for providing and maintaining a property that is fit for human habitation, which includes addressing pest infestations. The Repairing Standard, as outlined in the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006, sets out the minimum standards that rental properties must meet, and this includes provisions for the elimination of pests.
If a pest infestation is caused by a tenant’s actions, such as poor hygiene or improper storage of food, the tenant may be responsible for addressing the issue. However, if the infestation is due to a defect in the property or a failure by the landlord to properly maintain the property, the landlord is generally responsible for rectifying the problem.
In any case, it is important for landlords to take prompt action to address pest infestations, as failure to do so can result in legal action and financial penalties, as well as harm to the property and its inhabitants.
