Mole Catching in Winnersh
Winnersh is a semi-rural place and many people on the fringes of the town will encounter moles as they travel hidden from view in from the surrounding countryside.
Mother mole will attack her offspring in mid to late summer driving them away from her territory and this is when you're most likely to encounter a mole.
We also carryout mole trapping on a "no Catch - no Fee" basis in that occasionally moles will move into a garden and just as quickly move off - so in the event we don't or can't catch your mole - you won't get a bill.
Can't say fairer than that!
Bird Netting & Proofing in Winnersh
The feral pigeon problem is on the rise in Winnersh as these clever and adaptable birds have recently found a new place to build their nests safe from predators and out of the weather.
Pigeons have learned that the space left beneath roof top solar panels is a wonderful place to nest, the pigeons use the support bars as a ledge to build their nests on and a normal sized roof array can have a flock up to 30 strong.
This creates a lot of noise, mess from the birds defecating and generally makes life outside unpleasant; aside from the health hazard all that guano is eating away at the metal supports and roof tiles.
We can install a metal skirt around the perimeter of the solar panels preventing the birds from getting underneath leaving you in peace as the flock will move on.
Bed Beg Treatments in Winnersh
Bed bugs used to be something which we thought had been eradicated from the UK but with increased travel these insects have re-emerged and with a difference. Bed bugs are becoming chemically resistant to some of the older generation chemicals used in pest control.
To combat this we offer two levels of service: both uses high temperatures to kill the insects -
Treatment 1 uses 180 degree centigrade steam and two modern chemicals for smaller, more localised infestations.
Treatment 2 uses portable electric heaters that raise the entire room temperature to 60 degrees centigrade for larger more widespread infestations.
Squirrel control in Winnersh
Winnersh has a lot of squirrels; with two breeding seasons in a good year each female can bring up between six and eight young; some of the females born late in the year will stay with her through the winter.
Squirrels like to live in lofts; these are warm and dry and make an ideal place to over winter, if you have mature tree's around your property then you are at risk of having squirrels coming to stay for the winter.
Their nesting habit means that they will quickly rip through any soft items stored in the loft including the insulation to make their nest called a drey; this is rolled into a ball close to the entrance to the loft.
We trap and remove squirrels with approved spring traps and will not use poison in our treatments,we consider the use of rodenticide against squirrels to be inhumane. Once we've taken out the squirrels we'll seal the access point up for you to prevent a re-occurrence.
Rat catching in Winnersh
Without doubt rats are our most common pest that we are called out for in Winnersh; clever animals that are found wherever mankind is, rats are real opportunists.
Our rat treatment starts with trapping rather than the use of poison to avoid dead rats left to rot inside your property, we track the rats movement and find out how they're getting inside the property - when we know that we can seal up the entrance leaving you vermin free
Our approach to rat catching has made us market leaders in rat control throughout Reading and we work for Reading Borough Council in helping to resolve some long term infestations.
Mouse control in Winnersh
Field mice are a very common pest found in Winnersh; their nature is to live outside in hedgerow's and sheds but if they discover a problem with a building they can enter via the smallest of holes - if you can squeeze your little finger through a hole - a field mouse can enter.
Once inside they will start feeding on stored items, ripping into plastic and cardboard packaging and leaving droppings: between 40 and 60 a day for each mouse. This can quickly become a health issue as they can carry salmonella in their feaces.
When it comes to mice, as with all our rodent treatments, we trap rather than use rodenticide - this stops animals dying inside your property and for field mice we should not use professional rodenticide as this leads to secondary poisoning of birds like owls.
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.
