Thorough Pest Control Services in Somerset
Apollo Environmental Services was started in 1989 by a disillusioned farm worker, back in the heady days of high house prices and Filofaxes. How times change. Now we have high house prices and mobile phones. Having met a few pests on the various farms we had worked on and having been assured that we could make a million, into business we went. Back in the old days, when men were men and women ruled the country, setting up a business was easy. Mr Health and Safety and Mr Endless Regulation were still in nappies and romping around a play pen with sharp edges, pointy-out bits and non-sterile surfaces, while being supervised by an inappropriate adult who did not have any NVQs. This allowed us to just go out and be pest control men. Over the next few years, we learnt from our mistakes, attended many training courses and developed the business. Today, we still have most of the customers who entrusted us with the task of keeping their home or business pest-free. Now, of course, health and safety, and various regulations, are standardised for every type of business and we comply with them all. As we rapidly approach twenty years of pest controlling, we continue to develop and improve the service we provide. Based in Bridgwater, we serve both domestic, commercial and agricultural customers across Somerset.
Pest Control Across the Whole of Somerset
We serve across the whole of Somerset and offer the following services:
Bird Proofing & Control
We offer humane bird proofing and control to prevent health and safety hazards, mess and damage to your property. Deterrents include bird spikes and gel, netting, mesh and falconry.
Rat & Mouse Control
Rats and mice can cause havoc to your home, factory and farm, spreading germs as they roam around. Our technicians use proven control methods to eradicate rats and mice.
Cute and cuddly in appearance, yet squirrels are a real nuisance. They have a destructive nature, damaging properties and spreading diseases as they go. Our squirrel control methods are effective and long-lasting.
Wasps are incredibly social insects and some nests can contain thousands of them. We use a range of methods for wasp control, including fumigation, depending on the severity of the problem.
A very common pest in the UK, fleas usually come from pets before spreading further throughout properties. Home treatments are unlikely to help. We have a range of effective methods to get rid of fleas in a timely manner.
Bed Bug Control
These crafty creatures hide in cracks, walls and furniture in the day and come out at night. They can be difficult to spot, if you have bites and dark spots on your soft bed furnishing, arrange an inspection.
There are hundreds of fly species and our technicians have the expertise and methodology to control flies of all kinds. In addition to eradication, we have a range of prevention methods such as window and door screens and more.
If left untreated, moths can cause a huge problem. They lay eggs in soft furnishings (carpet, clothes and sometimes within food!), but rest assured our team have everything you need to eradicate moths.
What Do I Offer?
Pest Control on a Contract Basis
All the contracts we carry out are tailored to the needs of the individual business. There is no charge to give a quotation. The number of visits made during the year will depend on the risk of infestation from the various types of pest. For example, a farm would be considered high risk for both rats and mice, so a monthly visit would be recommended. A pub would generally be considered low risk so a quarterly visit would be enough. In some cases a contract will have to be taken out in order to comply with regulations and recommendations from various inspectorates. When this is the case, a minimum number of visits may be specified, regardless of risk.
