Midlothian pest problems tackled

Midlothian Council dealt with a total of 648 pest control call-outs over a year, according to a new report.

This equated to 8.04 pest problems per 1,000 residents, ranking Midlothian 24th of the 32 Scottish local authorities.

The data comes from the first British Pest Control Association national survey, which analysed demand for pest control across all 393 authorities in the UK over a year.
