Pest Control for Property Management
UK Pest Laws
If you are a landlord or letting agent in the UK, it is important to have a reputable pest control partner who will work with you to keep your properties pest free.
Properties infested with pests such as mice, rats, pigeons, cockroaches, bed bugs and fleas pose a public health risk for inhabitants and may even result in legal action against the landlord or property owner. Property owners and landlords have a legal obligation to uphold and maintain high property standards, ensuring they are fit for either residential or commercial use.
The Prevention of Damage by Pests Act 1949 enables local authorities and licenced businesses such as Protex Pest Control to practice the appropriate pest removal and prevention strategies.
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 states how certain substances and chemicals can be used. Pesticides, insecticides, chemical baits, and poisons must be carefully managed to ensure no indirect damage is caused to humans or other living species. Our technicians at Protex Pest Control will ensure any necessary chemicals are used correctly and comply with the COSHH regulations.
Some species are protected, regardless of how much of a pest you consider them to be. A protected species must be handled correctly or left alone.
For your own safety and to ensure you comply with the law, we strongly advise against attempting to resolve a pest problem yourself.
