This is the start of our pest control year where we see an annual inward movement of rats, mice and squirrels into homes all over Berkshire. We at Maidenhead Pest Control do our utmost to ensure you're pest free and you remain that way through a process called Integrated Pest Management. 
We use every available method to target the treatment of bed bugs and we can offer a zero chemical alternative if required to eradicate these horrible insects. Don't suffer with bites and mattress staining, help is at hand and if you are concerned about the effectiveness we can guarantee our treatments. 
As professional pest controllers we’re always looking to deliver the best possible service and in regards to dealing with bed bug problems we’re already delivering a quality service. For those people in Reading who have an infestation of bed bugs there are two ways to treat them: 
The application of chemicals through a surface sprayer and the application of heat; we have made considerable investment in portable heaters that raise the internal dwelling temperatures to 60*C, at temperatures around 45*C both juvenile and adult bed bugs will die – this is their thermal death point. 
Bed bug eggs however are a completely different thing and their TDP temperature is another 5*C higher, coupled with that the fact the eggs will be placed in out of the way spaces there is a chance that the heat may not completely penetrate. To combat this when delivering a heat treatment to a customer we finish up with the surface spray to leave a long lasting residue of insecticide. 
We have been asked about non-chemical treatments and after giving that some consideration we can now treat bed bugs with the application of super heated steam; this is not something like you’re household kitchen streamer. We are using a device that raises the temperature to 180*C and we can introduce cleaning chemicals to remove some of the bed bug staining from mattresses. 
The steam produced is pure vapour so the mattresses don’t remain soaked and the bed can be used that night; two litres of water will produce enough bed bug killing steam to last for two hours. This investment allows us to deliver a targeted, non chemical alternative to use usual bed bug treatments. 
Our aim has always been to deliver the best service possible, that’s why we say our customers are our priority. 
Bed bugs in a trap
A quick overview of pest control activity in Maidenhead and the surrounding area throughout the summer. 
As professional pest controllers we deal with wasp nests but we won't treat honey bee's, particularly when swarming. These insects are fairly docile and can be collected by a local beekeeper which can be found by looking up the British Beekeepers Association. 
Its the peak of the mole breeding season and we are busy catching moles all over Maidenhead - got a problem with moles? It'll only get worse; find out why. 
How do you deal with a rodent infestation in your home? There are two ways; the wrong way and the right way using IPM - our recent job in Boyn HIll. All sorted without the use of poison and sorted for good - this is pest control done the right way. 
Its not all about eradication with us; this little chap was rescued and let loose. Another pest control company would have just set traps but with us it was his lucky day. 
We always follow the tracks - whether you've got mice, squirrels or rats we'll let the animal do the work. If we don't have snow to give us tracks thats no problem as we'll create our own. Photos from a recent job in Maidenhead town centre. 
The Beast from the East blew in and caused havoc, but not for us ... we just followed the tracks :D 
The unexpected blast of cold air brings in a rise of call outs to deal with rats in Maidenhead; as the weather starts to warm so they're breeding rate rises and the cold snap see's an small outbreak of rat infestations.
