Bed Bugs & Squirrels:


Hello to Customers Past and Presentand Future!

The winter season at Pest UK is traditionally quieter than the rest of the year, however we have found ourselves very busy dealing with rats and squirrels which try to come inside houses at this time of year.

The only way to get rid of squirrels out of loft spaces quickly is by using traps. Obviously the squirrels will make a noise for a few moments after being killed in a trap (this is just nerves twitching after it has been killed). Below is a picture showing a squirrel humanely caught in a loft in Reading, Berkshire.

At Pest UK we have recently carried out several Bed Bug jobs in Calcot and Theale. These type of jobs are not really dependent on seasonal differences in any way, however usually we get a sudden rush of them at the end of the summer when people come back from holidays. I have personally had an infestation of bed bugs in my house following a holiday to Turkey a few years ago, which is a true story I often tell customers to reassure them that I am knowledgeable and successful at treating them. Below is a photo showing the marks left by the bed bugs on a bed in Theale. If you have noticed marks like this on your bed and are getting bites, then you probably have bed bugs.
