Wasps - Wokingham Called out to deal with wasps in the store room of a carpet shop in Wokingham. Mike quickly found a small nest, no larger than a tennis ball, rolled up within a rug. A quick puff of FICAM D into the nest and 20 mins later our customer was wasp free.
Thank you for a very professional and swift response at a very fair price. I discovered the wasps nest being built at the back of my shop yesterday so phoned this morning and hey presto, by 2.30 today my problem is solved and I am able to exit the back door again! - Nick Manson - Wokingham
Rats - Reading Rats were gaining entry through a broken air vent, with a 4 week program of trapping we managed to rid the property of rats. Mike then carried out proofing works on the broken vent to ensure that rodents would be unable to gain access in future.
Very impressed with the service, from call through to the visit. The technician that came out was friendly and reliable. His extensive knowledge on our pest problem and how to deal with it was very reassuring. Would highly recommend! - Karen Green, Reading - via Google review
Moths - Caversham, Reading Several rooms in the property had evidence of moth larvae activity. We tracked the infestation through the property to find the source which transpired to be in the airing cupboard.
We were at wits end with a carpet moth infestation when we found Mikes services. It was not an easy job to sort out as we had small pets which meant we were concerned about using chemical treatments in the house. Mikes approachable, knowledgeable and professional service really put us at ease and the problem was solved quickly before too much damage was done. We were also very pleasantly surprised at the price! (another factor why we had delayed seeking professional help for so long to the detriment of our carpets) - John Hissey - Caversham - via Google review
Mice - Caversham, Reading After a survey of the property, Mike found a gap under the garage door through which mice were then able to gain entry to the hallway. Following a 3-4 week program of trapping and proofing all entry points, Mike managed to eradicate the issue and made sure no repeat infestations could take place.
Really impressed with the service offered by Mike. Same day service-within 4 hours. Very knowledgeable. Spent time assessing indoors and out for entry points, then sealed them, all for a one off fee. Very reasonable. Came back every few days to check on progress. Would definitely recommend ! - Mrs OSullivan - Caversham
Wasps - Tilehurst, Reading We received a call to assist with wasps in a rear garden in Tilehurst, Reading. The wasps were nesting in a hole in the ground, however once on site another nest was discovered underneath a roof tile and treated as part of the original price.
Wasps nest in a hole in the garden needed sorting. Mike came out to deal with it when he said he would the next morning, and - for no extra money - dealt with another nest I'd just noticed under a tile in the roof. Good value too. - Chris Atkins - Tilehurst - via Facebook
Rats in Tilehurst, Reading We were contacted about noises in the loft of a semi-detached cottage in Tilehurst. After a survey of both the property and neighbouring property we managed to track the source of the problem to a summer house in the garden; this was baited and trapped and checked on a regular basis, proofing was then done across both properties to stop any further entry.
These guys were so good. Not only did they turn up the day I called, but they dealt with everything expertly, but then came back and back for weeks afterwards, to continue checking the traps and they didn’t stop until it was done! A huge commitment from them and as such, brilliant value for money
Really good service. I couldn’t be more pleased. - Natasha Cleeve, Tilehurst - Via Facebook
Wasps - Lower Earley, Reading Wasps were entering via the facia and soffit above a bedroom window, as it was the childs bedroom window we stayed on site until the nest was eradicated completely to make sure everyone including the child were safe.
Fantastic, speedy and caring service from Mike. Thanks for sorting out the wasps.
Great service, would highly recommend. Sarah Quennell - Lower Earley - via Facebook
Rats - Shinfield, Reading We were called out to assist a customer hearing noises in their loft, we surveyed the property using tracking dust until we found the entry point under the rear door. We used temporary proofing and rodent traps until we were sure this was the main entry point, once confirmed we sealed the hole to prevent any further infestations.
Came on time and problem all solved
Thank you so much - Sharon Elizabeth Allen, Shinfield - via Facebook
Wasps - Tilehurst, Reading Wasps were found to be entering under a tile above a downstairs window, after a quick dusting inside the entry point Mike waited to make sure it had taken effect. Within half an hour the activity had died down and by the next day the nest was completely eradicated.
Contacted Mike on Sunday within an hour he had phoned me, he arranged to deal with the wasp nest at my house the following day.
I’m very happy to say that since he treated the wasps that they have all gone, but he does include a guarantee if there are any issues.
Can highly recommend Mike, very polite quick to come out and very good price too. - Karen Hill, Tilehurst - via Facebook
Wasps, Camberley Wasps were entering at the rear of the house through a ground floor facia and soffit and were extremely active so great care was taken while treating; within 24 hours the wasps were all gone.
Came out quickly to deal with our very busy wasp nest. Polite and professional, wore the 'bee keeper's suit' and put some powder into to eaves. Returning wasps are taking powder into the nest and Mike says they should be all clear in the next 3 or 4 days, if not call and he will return FOC. Will update this feedback in a couple of days. Quick update - Day 2 after the treatment - no sign of any wasps at all. Seems to have been successful. - Cherie Whitby, Reading
Rats, Reading On this job we had rats in and around a bin area, bin area was secure except for one hole leading inside, 1 of the bins was also missing a drainage cap allowing rats entry into the bins, replacing the cap and sealing the hole stopped the rats gaining entry into the bin and bin area, we also trapped around the bin store to rid the population of rats.
“Service was exceptional, really good in the way you know Mike wasn’t there to take money for work that wasn’t needed as I have experienced in the past. Service and advice was 100% and couldn’t fault in any way and most importantly The problem has been resolved. I would highly recommend Abbey Pest Control for a friendly service and so knowledgeable to correct any pest problem you may have. Thank you Mike be assured I will call you if needed again!” - Checkatrade Customer - Reading

Noise in the walls... is it birds, mice, rats, squirrels?
“I kept hearing suspicious noises in the walls and wanted a knowledgeable pest control specialist to resolve the problem without potential negative consequences for humans, property and environment, and to leave my property pest-proof. Mike did all that, plus calming my slightly frazzled nerves throughout and disinfecting the affected area for good measure. 100% recommended! Not only put out baits and therefore expose me and the surrounding to potential negative consequences.” Checkatrade Customer - Reading
