The diverse Scottish landscape covers the northern third of Great Britain. It's temperate, oceanic climate (warmed by the Atlantic Gulf Stream) is milder in winter yet wetter in summer than areas of a similar latitude. This fact, combined with the mix of seven city conurbation's (Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness, Perth, Stirling), rolling lowlands, lochs and mountainous Highlands provides various opportunities for pests to thrive.
Edinburgh's historic, medieval old town with it's tortuous alleyways, magnificent castle and mix of chic hotels, bars, cafes and coffee shops is a mecca for tourists. The eateries of the Royal Mile and Princes Street, along with takeaways and street venders across such a densely populated area, gives scavenging pests like rats, mice and pigeons more than enough scraps to survive. The cities open spaces such as Holyrood Park and Princes Street gardens offer these creatures a potential safe haven to hide and nest, along with numerous lofts and cellars throughout the city.
Glasgow's George Square with it's famous City Chambers, busy restaurants and Merchant City area with its 18th century converted warehouses full of stylish bars, bijou cafes and tea rooms provides the same temptations for tourists and pests alike. Similar can be said for cosmopolitan Dundee with it's bustling waterfront and City Quay or the Granite City of Aberdeen with it's heaving harbour and large student population or any town or city. Wherever people congregate and live in close proximity pests will attempt to take advantage from cockroaches, bed bugs and clothes moths to rodents and pest birds.
