Reading Pest Control is a local family run business
Here at Reading Pest Control we are a family run business that carries out a full range of pest treatments with a difference; that difference is that we care about our customers, we don't have special seasonal offers of a third visit for rats for free - we just don't set a number of visits for rodent problems at all. If you've got rats or mice inside your property we will not resort to the use of poison immediately; our aim is to discover the entrance for the vermin and come up with a plan to seal this and to get you pest free for good. That entrance point maybe in an adjoining property so we track the rodents, trapping them as we go therefore removing dead animals and not leaving poisoned one's inside the building. As part of our standard service for rats we will include a CCTV drain survey if its required to investigate the underground route that they can use which is otherwise hidden from view.
We take our job very seriously and all our pest treatments are carried out from a perspective of what is best for the customer - we guarantee our wasp and hornet treatments which also includes any additional nests that we may find at the same time; no 'additional' charges or price hikes. If you've got wasps we're get rid of them its as simple as that!
We carryout treatments for other insects like cockroaches and bed bugs and for both of these we combine a variety of chemicals and application methods because these insects are becoming immune to the pesticides used against them. With bed bugs all our treatments begin with high temperature application either as a steam or from portable electric appliance's that raise the entire temperature of the room.
We provide a routine monitoring service for commercial customers that has an unique aspect to it: Integrated Pest Management. We don't just look at our bait stations when we visit your premises, we look at the site to see what changes have been made and any environmental changes from neighbouring properties or land; this is a dynamic assessment of the risk to your site and influences how we keep you vermin free. After that we look closely at the fabric of the building, searching for wear and tear and defects that maybe exploited by a rat, if we find any these will be immediately sealed up by our technician. The final part is to look at the area and note anything that can lead to a future infestation: rubbish and redundant items left outside can provide harbourage for rats and we can carry this material away and dispose at an authorised site; documentation will be send to you for your records. Using IPM we can make you business premises a safe and compliant place to work.
We deal with all types of pest: insects, rodents, mole catching and bird control; feral pigeons are a large problem right across Berkshire and we carryout spiking and netting to void areas, preventing the birds from roosting and nesting. As these birds leave behind a large mess: old nest material, droppings which we call guano and quite often dead birds, we offer a cleaning service working across the commercial sector on roofs where air conditioning plant is kept and for domestic properties where the birds have nested on balconies and beneath solar panels.
If you've got the pest then we have the solution to the problem - our customers are our priority.
Hornet and Wasp Nest Removal in Theale
The Queen wasp emerges in spring and begins construction on her nest; they do not use old wasp nests - each one that you'll see was built in that season. Wasp numbers may reach several thousand by the end of the summer; wasps, hornets and bee's actually kill more people than any other species, hence why we consider them to be our number one pest.
We guarantee our treatments - if the wasps don't die off within 24 hours we will be back to reapply and finish them off - for good.
When you use Reading Pest Control for a wasp nest removal in Theale - you won't get stung by us.
Mole Catching in Theale
Moles are solitary creatures living in an underground network of tunnels; these networks will overlap like a Venn diagram which allows the males to find the females during the breeding season. Aggressive, anti-social and equipped with poor parenting skills its a wonder how these small animals are so successful?
Their dental structure can be traced right back through fossil records to the earliest mammals - humans, elephants, dogs and cows all belong to this order with vastly different teeth.
We work on a no catch = no fee basis; so if we don't catch your mole then you don't pay a penny.
Bird Netting, Proofing and Cleaning in Theale
Pigeons were once domesticated and used as a food source, this close association with mankind means that they are happy to live alongside us and people who live in flats can go away for a couple of weeks to return and find a family of pigeons nesting on their balconies.
As pigeons carry diseases and their droppings can be a major health issue its not a great idea to let these birds live in close proximity to us, we can use non-lethal methods to get rid of the pigeons.
Don't let pigeons give you the bird - give Reading Pest Control a call.
Bed Bug Treatments in Theale
Bed bugs are typically picked up when staying in hotels and hostels - hence their name, but, and like everything they can also be picked up from aircraft seats, train seats and on buses - just about anywhere that people sit for long periods.
As parasites they live near the host animal - that's us! So its easy to understand their behaviour - they live in cracks and crevices around furniture and places like skirting boards. We are experts at rooting out the insects using steam, dry heat and chemicals to gain control.
Don't let the bed bugs bite - call out Reading Pest Control.
Grey Squirrel Control in Theale
The grey squirrel is an crevices animal that was bought over to the UK many years ago; being an non-native species gives it some advantages: no predators for one, and coupled with two breeding seasons in a good year their number have risen dramatically.
Demand for nest sites is at an all time high and these members of the rodent species will gnaw their way into lofts and extension roofs all over Theale.
We trap squirrels rather than use poison and seal up the entrance to keep your property vermin free.
Rat Catching in Theale
The rat population in the UK is on the rise and Theale is no exception for having problems with rats; we use Integrated Pest Management to its full when dealing with rats - investigation, tracking and trapping allows us to gain control of the problem and then we seal up the rats' entrance meaning that you're pest free for good.
We will survey your drains as well if that is believed to be the entrance point; our aim is to get your problem resolved and not just poison at it.
Rats cause damage and spread disease, finding out how they are getting into a building is the most important aspect of the rat treatment.
Mouse Catching in Theale
There are two species of mouse considered to be a pest: the house mouse and the field mouse. The latter one is the one you're most likely to encounter in Theale and as professionals we should not use rodenticide as part of a control strategy. These small rodents form the base of a food chain for owls and raptors, poisoning mice also kills these birds.
Our approach is to always trap mice, removing dead bodies as we go and sealing up their access point; this will be the same size of your little finger and that's why we are so thorough with our treatments.
Mice can carry salmonella so its best to get a professional company out quickly - mouse in the house? Give us a call.
Professional Waste Clearance in Theale from Reading Pest Control
We deal with some seriously dirty infestations; rodents like mice and rats along with pigeons will all leave large amounts of contamination behind following the conclusion of an eradication. There are times when we can say that the reason that the infestation occurred was down to the waste material lying around, so here at Reading Pest Control we provide a professional waste management service carrying out clearance of all the contaminated items, taking down and clearing old redundant sheds and overgrown gardens to prevent rats and mice from moving straight back in.
For our commercial customers with monitoring contracts, we can take away old worn out equipment, stacks of delivery pallets and any waste which may harbour rodents. We will send over copies of the waste transfer notes so you can see that the material has been properly disposed off.
Whatever your pest or if you just need some advice, the technicians at Reading Pest Control are here for you! We believe our customers should receive the same great service and treatment that we would accept in our own home.
