Urban rats and mice across Edinburgh

Rodents are commensal pests, opportunistic scavengers thriving in our urban areas from Pebbles to Queensferry, that can offer them ample food and shelter. Both rats and house mice are omnivorous, consuming anything from contents of compost and rubbish bins and discarded left-overs to fruits and seeds in gardens and parks and even the food in our homes if they get in. The quickest and most effective way to get rid of rats or mice is by professional, targeted treatments.

Expert Pest Control in Edinburgh & The Lothian’s

The atmospheric cobbled streets and narrow wynds of Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile and medieval Old Town, along with the elegant neoclassical New Town attract a constant flow of tourists to this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sustaining these visitors are an array of hotels, restaurants, cafes, bars, pubs and takeaways. Many can be found around the Royal Mile, chic Stockbridge and charming Morningside. These eateries across a compact and densely populated city give scavenging pests like rats, mice and pigeons plenty of scraps to survive on.

The city's green parks and open spaces such as Holyrood Park, Princes Street Gardens, Regent Gardens, Calton Hill and The Meadows, offer these creatures potential safe havens to hide and nest, along with numerous lofts and cellars throughout the Edinburgh area. However our skilled, local experts know how to find their harbourages and control these pests.
