Pest Control in Reading from a local company
Who is All Aspects Pest Control?
We are a local family run firm based a few miles out of town in Woodley, we are a father, son and future son-in-law team with over 19 years experience in pest control.
Tony is a retired firefighter from Caversham Road Fire Station who first started in pest control as a farm hand catching moles when he was sixteen. Liam has come into the family business from a background in recruitment. Working alongside us we also have Mike who is the future son-in-law, who runs his own pest control business in Reading.
As a team we deal with all manner of pests from a small one off wasp treatment in the summer to long standing rat control and pigeon clearance work throughout the year, we work for Reading Borough Council form time to time.
Our aim is to provide a fuller, more comprehensive service than other pest controllers, as part of our usual rat investigation we carryout CCTV drain surveys when required for no extra charge; if you have rats coming in via your drains its our job to quickly determine that as the access point so we can wrap up your rat treatment.
As a company we're not heavily into the use of rodenticide inside peoples’ homes, once poisoned with rodenticide the pest controller has no way of determining where the animal dies and if that is inside someone's home then you will have other problems to add to the rats. Decomposing rats with a horrible smell, flies and maggots are all to be added to the list.
Our approach to all rodent treatments is the same, whether its mice, rats or squirrels we set out to identify the point of ingress, set traps to physically catch the rodents and then when we've cleared that up we will seal the route into the property meaning your pest free.
We are fully insured and members of professional pest control bodies and we can have a technician out to you within 24 hours of receiving your call.
Wasps Nest Removal in Reading and Caversham
Late spring and summer see's the appearance of wasps and hornets right across Reading and Berkshire, these stinging insects inflict a lot of pain and misery for people as they are one insect that invokes a bad reaction when they sting.
Our technicians have full protective suits and a range of different methods to treat wasp nests; its always better to callout a professional company than try and treat these yourself. We can have one of our staff out to you within 24 hours of getting the call.
We are an ethical pest controller and as such our policy of the treatment of bumble bee's, masonry bee's and honey bee's is to rehome in the case of bumble bee's and honey bee's and ignore for the masonry bee's - these little bee's may look like wasps at first sight however they are completely harmless as they don't have a stinger.
All of our wasp or hornet treatments come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee as in the event that we don't destroy the nest we will be straight back to treat it again. As part of our commitment to deliver the best service possible we will survey the property for any other wasp nests and treat any that we find all in the
Mole Catching in Reading and Caversham
Mole catching is where I started in pest control at the age of sixteen, we have years of experience at this and because I'm confident on our ability to catch we work on a no catch no fee basis. Many pest control companies will charge you up front and then send out someone in the hope that they catch your mole; it doesn't matter if they do or don't as you've already paid.
When it comes to mole catching its about skill and patience, moles move around in an environment that we know little about. They're feeding habits follow a pattern of four hours of activity and four hours of rest so we should catch that mole within 24 hours - that's three mole days!
Pigeon Control and Guano Cleaning in Reading
Reading has a large pigeon population and we can provide a solution to your bird problems: we carryout anti-bird proofing by installing nets ans spikes to physically prevent the birds from roosting and nesting on buildings.
We also install a mesh skirt around the bottom of roof top solar panels as the birds will nest beneath the panels resting on the metal supports that hold the actual panels. A lot of homeowners have this problem and we install the systems all over Berkshire.
Pigeons make a lot of mess; they're nests are held together with guano or bird poo and there will often be dead birds lying around the area, we do a lot of pigeon poo cleaning both for domestic or commercial customers. From a simply flat balcony that needs a net installed and the floor of the balcony cleaned to an intricate roof top air conditioning plant that needs a net stretched over the top with supports and access doors we do the lot!
Pigeons spread disease and even other pests, having these birds nesting on your building damages stonework, paint, metal and even concrete as the acid in the guano leaches out minerals and salts causing rapid decay - don't delay if you have birds roosting or nesting on your property as the solution is just a phone call away.
Rat, Mice and Squirrel control in Reading and Caversham
Here at All Aspects Pest Control we carryout all our mouse, rat and squirrel treatments to a method called Integrated Pest Management, we look to use humane approved traps to kill the rodents then we determine where they were getting into the building.
Once we know the access point we will seal that up meaning that there in no way in for the rodents and you will be pest free - the most important question that I ask on a job is - "Where are the animals getting in?", once we know that we have total control.
We carryout minor drain repairs as part of our treatment if rats are the issue and we will use CCTV equipment to survey the drainage system for potential faults, if we find that extensive repairs are needed we can install a one way valve as a temporary measure until full repairs can be made.
We sort out your rat, mouse and squirrel problems with investigation, trapping and proofing not poison, poison and more poison.
