We are a local family run pest control business dealing with a variety of pests that you'll encounter in Arborfield; the most common being rats and mice, squirrels and moles and then through the summer months wasps and hornets. We deal with all insect pests such as carpet beetles and clothes moths and those that get picked up unexpectedly like cockroaches and bed bugs.
We are all qualified with the Royal Society Public Health Level 2 in Pest Management and members of a Government backed scheme aimed at improving standards within the pest control industry. Our aim is deliver a quality service at the right price; we focus on customer service and treat your home as if it were our home. This means that we work very differently to many other pest control companies and we explain in the sections below what our treatments consist off.
Hornet and Wasp Nest Treatment in Arborfield
When it comes to dealing with wasps and hornets inArborfiled we guarantee all of our treatments; the insects should die off within hours of our technician being with you and in the event that they don't die off we will happily return and re-treat the nest for you.
But that's not all! We also include in this treatment any other nests that we find; we don't stick on 'extras' or hike up our prices - if you've got wasps then we get rid of them its as simple as that.
We have over 19 years service in the industry and we take pride in the level of service that we provide.
Mole Catching in Arborfield
Moles are elusive and you never know when they are going to pop up in the lawn; rural areas like Arborfield can see regular inward movement of moles, particularly as they have some busy periods through the year.
We carryout mole catching in a traditional manner using barrel traps that apart from the material have changed very little over hundreds of years; if it worked then its works now.
We work on a no catch = no fee basis so you're only paying for proven results.
Moles are a constant for us and how I started in the pest control business. They are our pest of the month for March - click here to follow the link.
Bird proofing works and guano cleaning in Arborfield
The introduction of solar panels has presented us with a new problem when it comes to feral pigeons; they like to nest beneath the panels turning the roof into a hazardous area covered in bird feaces.
Pigeons build their nests from twigs cemented together with their feaces and these nests contain harmful bacteria and viruses and it requires a specialist clean with the correct protective clothing and accessories to remove the nests, foul staining and any dead birds.
If you have a bird issue getting you into a bit of a flap, please give us a call on 01344 534 311.

Bed Beg Treatments in Arborfield
Bed bugs have become the modern plague; as we travel further and more frequently so we stand a greater chance of picking these insects up and bringing them home with use.
They are developing resistance to the pesticides that we use in their control and so more difficult to treat; we always use heat in our bed bug treatments as they can't withstand high temperatures.
We use a cocktail of chemicals and heat applications to destroy these bloodsucking insects - click here to visit our site where there are;
Rat catching in Arborfield
Rats are a common problem just about everywhere and Arborfield is no exception; our approach to rat control is different to other pest control companies. For one we don't resort to the use of poison straight away; we look to track the animals and in the situation where they are inside a property we want to find the entrance.
We do this through tracking and trapping, we often find that there is a fault with the drainage system so we carryout CCTV surveys on your drains as standard - if you've got rats inside the house we want to find our how they're getting in.
We do use poison for rat control but only as a last resort; we find the entrance point and seal it up - why would you want anything different?
Squirrel Catching in Arborfield
Squirrels have no predators in the UK; as an introduced animal these rodents have wreaked havoc on our resident red squirrel population, many song birds and acres of young tree's.
Why is a squirrel a pest? They are omnivores so able to eat anything from tree bark, flower bulbs, seeds and acorns and meat; with two breeding seasons and no predators the grey squirrel population increases year on year and with few nest sites they will gnaw through roof fascias to use your loft.
Inside the loft they cause damage to insulation and stored items; we do not use poison on squirrels we only use humane traps. Under the Wildlife and Countryside Act it is illegal to release a unharmed grey squirrel.
Mouse Control in Arborfield
Field mice will be a problem in Arborfield; as a rural area surrounded by fields and woodland you will see a high degree of shrew, wood mouse and field mouse activity.
These belong outside and we try to keep them there; we start with an inspection of your property and we will seal up any holes that we find. As a rule of thumb use your little finger - if you can find a hole that size then a mouse can get in.
We seal and trap until we've caught all the mice inside your property, careful examination will reveal all the access points.
It is illegal for a professional pest control company to use rodenticide on field mice as they are not covered by the rodenticide label.
Cockroach Treatments in Arborfield
Cockroaches are becoming more frequent as a pest infestation; our dependence on 'just in time' stock movements see the speed of movement of goods increase between the factory and the point of delivery.
Cockroaches lay their egg's in a protective case; this is stuck somewhere safe and if that is inside an electrical appliance or a multipack of foodstuffs its very easy for the young cockroaches to transfer.
We use a cocktail of chemicals in the form of gels, liquids and fogging agents to eradicate cockroaches over separate visits.
Waste Clearance in Arborfield
We are registered waste carriers licensed with the Environment Agency; if you have had an infestation and you're left with contaminated items or old redundant rotten sheds and outbuildings we can remove these and clean up leaving you in a pest free environment - just ring us for a free no obligation quote.
Whatever your pest or if you just need some advice, the technicians at Bracknell 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. We are disrupting the industry by doing the job properly! I know crazy right?
