Newbury Council Pest Control
Newbury Council Pest Services
If you require a pest control service in Newbury, you could be tempted to contact West Berkshire Council. However they do not offer a service of their own. This is in fact a good thing, for the following reasons-
- With council run pest control, you have a service that arrives any time between 8am and 5pm.
- The service is contactable between 8am & 5pm, Monday to Friday. Otherwise email or voicemail are the only options.
- Weekend services are not offered.
- The service offered can be booked up for days or weeks in advance.
PESTUK offer 24/7 answering of all calls by a person, never a machine. Our technicians work 7 days a week and work from 8am to 6pm (winter) and 8am to 7pm (summer). We provide a same day service to deal with pests. Appointments booked with us are in 2 hour slots meaning you don’t have to wait in all day for us to visit. Our technicians are fully qualified members of the BPCA and PROMPT/Basis trained and are also CRB checked. This means that any pest control conducted by PEST UK is by trained, professional technicians that use the most up to date techniques and methods to solve your pest problem.
Mice treatments in Newbury
You may see, hear or smell a mouse problem or other evidence such as burrowing or gnawing. Commonly heard in loft spaces they will travel in wall cavities to all parts of the house, especially areas where food is found. They often follow the routes of pipes throughout the house.
Mice are extremely adaptable, changing there behaviour to fit the environment they are in. House mice consume food meant for humans and pets. They contaminate food-preparation surfaces with their faeces, which can contain the bacterium that causes food poisoning (salmonellosis).
PESTUK will treat a mouse problem with sanitation, mouse proof construction and population reduction. The first two are useful as preventive measures. However when a mouse infestation already exists, a form of population reduction is always necessary. Reduction techniques include trapping and poisoning. PESTUK will use poison baiting as it is the quickest way to deal with a mouse infestation. The right type of bait in the right place has to be used for the whole population to feed on the bait for the treatment to succeed. The bait has to be put in the correct places, mice are territorial and if the bait is not in a mouse’s territory then it won’t take the bait.
