More Local Councils Axing Pest Control Services

Monday, March 23, 2015

Residents of the Wrexham area of North Wales recently learned that their local council had decided to abolish its pest control programme. From April of this year (2015), the council will no longer provide service for private properties and non-council housing. The council will continue treating public property and some council-owned homes; it says the decision is rooted in trying to reduce spending by some £45 million.

Although customers within the Pest Control Services’ Berkshire service area are not affected by the Wrexham decision, we bring this to your attention just to illustrate that more and more councils are abolishing their pest control programmes. As the Wrexham council points out, there are enough private pest control companies to handle the needs of property owners. It is not in their best interests to continue spending money on something the private sector already provides.

This is as true in Berkshire as it is anywhere else in England and Wales. Pest Control Services is an excellent example. We are a family owned business that has been providing reliable service to private property owners across Berkshire for more than two decades. We provide one-off services to homeowners as well as complete pest control management programmes for both businesses and commercial landowners.

You Can Trust Pest Control Berkshire

Over the years, we have built a reputation for being the go-to pest specialist in Newbury, Hungerford, and Thatcham. We handle everything from wasps to rats to moles, protecting you and your family from the disease and destruction that household pests are known to cause. With more than 20 years in the business, you can trust Pest Control Services to do the job right.

With spring now on the doorstep, we are poised to start seeing the arrival of those fair weather pests known to cause problems in the UK. We want to remind our customers to be especially careful with wasps and hornets. Never try to treat an infestation with an over-the-counter insecticide, as these products tend to agitate the insects more than anything else. Wasps can be especially dangerous when agitated.

Please call Pest Control Services at the first sign of a wasp or hornet problem. You can also contact us if the spring weather introduces you to fleas, bed bugs, flies, beetles, cockroaches, and other pests. We will respond quickly and efficiently.
