Pest Control in Shinfield from a local company
All Aspects Pest Control is a local pest company based in Woodley; we are a small, family run business employing a father and son team: Tony Smith and Liam Smith along with the future son in law: Mike Cook. We have been providing a range of pest control services in Berkshire for over 19 years.
We deal with all pests that you'll likely to encounter in Shinfield, we cover all the insect pests like wasps and ants, cockroaches and bed bugs along with the rodent pests: rats, mice, squirrels, we also carryout mole catching and we are experts in controlling birds like pigeons and starlings.
The pest control industry is dynamic and we are always looking to innovate and always learning, for internal rat infestations we carryout CCTV drain inspections. This allows us to locate defects used by the rats deep underground to access our homes and businesses and normally well out of sight.
When dealing with rodents we follow guidelines laid down by the Campaign for Responsible Use of Rodenticide meaning that we start our rodent treatments with trapping and we will only use poison in your home as a last resort. As a rule we're not happy to use rodenticde inside your home as the last thing you want are dead rats in the walls. Our approach is to trap the animals, using their trails to lead us to teh access point; when we find that we'll seal it up keeping you rat free for the future.
We are fully insured along with being members of the National Pest Technicians Association, we have also joined a Government backed scheme known as BASIS that aims to improve standards across the industry through continuous training and development.
As a local pest control company we can have a technician out to you within 24 hours of receiving your call.
Wasp Control in Shinfield
We focus on customer service and we aim to provide our customers with the highest standards possible and this dictates our approach to wasp treatments; we will guarantee all of wasp our treatments in Shinfield, so in the case that the nest doesn't die off within 24 hours we will return to retreat without charge.
We will also carryout a survey of your property, searching for smaller secondary wasp nests and in the event we find more nests these will be treated and they are included in the price and covered by the same guarantee.
Here at All Aspects Pest Control we don't hike up our prices and add-on additional charges - there's no sting with our wasp treatments!
Mole Catching in Shinfield
Mole catching in Shinfield is done on a traditional basis of no catch then no fee; we feel as professional mole catchers that its only fair to offer this to our customers. Moles are elusive creatures and can move into an area overnight and then move out of the area just as quick so never pay up front for mole catching.
Many pest control companies will charge over the phone, if the technician fails to catch or the mole disappears then you've paid out for ... well, nothing.
We're confident in our ability to catch moles so we have nothing to fear from our charging policy - its rare for a mole to get away from us.
Pigeon Control and Guano Cleaning in Shinfield
Bird control and cleaning up after they've settled on a building is an essential part of our job and we carryout bird proofing where pigeons have been nesting beneath solar panels; this area is dry and safe from predators and so its become a recent problem for homeowners when the birds take up nesting under the panels.
We install a metal mesh 'skirt' around the lower edge of the panels meaning that the birds can no longer access the void area beneath and they will soon leave the site.
We clean up bird guano and provide netting and spiking solutions for both domestic and commercial customers preventing birds from roosting and nesting in many environments.
Rat, Mice and Squirrel Control in Shinfield
We tend to group these pests together as they are all rodents and we deal with them all in a similar way; as stated in the introduction, we don't agree with a straight to poison approach or the use of poison as the only form of control for mice, rats and squirrels.
Its lazy and its taking a short cut, all of these animals can all be trapped and then used to indicate their access point, whether its a domestic or commercial building. If you have not addressed where the animals are getting in, then you haven't addressed the infestation properly; finding their entrance point is the most important part as once you've discovered that, it can be sealed up and you're kept pest free for good.
We track the animals and we survey your drains with CCTV equipment; this allows us to determine the entrance for the rodents, once we are at that point we will seal this up and finish trapping - all for a set price.
We won't hike up our charges or recommend 'additional' services like drains surveys as an extra charge - we just get on with the job and get rid of the pests.
Bed bug control in Shinfield
Bed bugs are an insect pest that is on the rise in Shinfield and elsewhere across Berkshire, in the pest control industry we have a cause for concern as these adaptable insects are developing chemical resistance to some of the insecticides that we use.
To combat this resistance in bedbugs, we only use new cutting edge chemicals along with a new innovate non-toxic liquid that kills insects by throwing a three dimensional micro - mesh over the insects - mind blowing stuff!
All our bed bug treatments start with an application of heat: high temperatures take all insects through whats called the thermal death point - at 44 degrees centigrade bed bugs die so we use either electric room heaters at 60 degrees or portable steam appliances at 180 degrees - guaranteed to kill bed bugs fast!
Cockroach control in Shinfield
Cockroaches can be a problem for businesses if you are involved in food handling, preparation or storage: a cockroach infestation can cost you much more than a pest control treatment. As cockroaches spread disease the Local Authority Environmental Health Department will close any establishment down if they find cockroaches, you will then be subject to Court action, a fine and most importantly, the loss of consumer confidence.
We provide regular pest monitoring for commercial properties, looking out for cockroaches and rodents and preventing an infestation before it starts.
Domestic properties can also get cockroaches; food bought in bulk may have an egg case stuck safe inside and when this hatches you'll have a ready made infestation. The sale of second kitchen appliances all bring with them the risk of cockroaches and we find this a common occurrence in our domestic work.
A new species that has been in the UK for a few years coming up from the Mediterranean is the garden cockroach - completely harmless and no more dangerous than a woodlouse, we are yet to see them in Shinfield but they have spread across the south of England.
