Thumbs up to Aberkil!
5
Hugely grateful to Andrew ,who is not only efficient and knowledgable, but extremely patient and empathetic.
He came within half an hour of my calling them, quickly identified where the mice were getting in, checked the whole house, set traps and planned two more visits . There is also a period of 3 weeks after the final visit, when you can call him out again, free of charge.
Aberkil responded more quickly and were also considerably cheaper than the bigger companies I called.

Bed bugs

I highly recommend this service should ever be unfortunate enough to require it. A few years ago I attended an illustrated talk at a landlords meeting on pest control and the speaker was Peter Stewart from Aberkil. The goal was to alert us to any possible infestation we may come across as landlords, I never really though I would need to know all that .
On 27th August I went into a property vacated by a tenant the day before to do a quick clean up and do an inventory check as the tenant was harassing me for the return of his deposit. One of the first things I noticed was what appeared to be mildew on the mattress of one of the beds. Closer inspection revealed small dark red mites crawling about, we had found bed bugs. Fortunately there was a yellow pages in the flat and we called Aberkil and even more fortunately, Peter himself was working in the vicinity so he was with us inside of 15 minutes. He confirmed that we had an infestation and we arranged to have 3 sessions of spraying carried out at 2 week intervals. As we investigated further, we discovered dead and live bugs in both bedrooms ( in the bedframes and in the bedside cabinets), on shelves in the living room, more crawling out of the curtains and lots more hiding in the fold of the skirting of the sofas. The very idea that these creatures are confined to beds is a complete misnomer. The “mildew” by the way was the faecal dropping of these bedbugs and it littered the bedframes so much that we had them all destroyed.
Getting a bill is never such a nice thing and particularly for something that you have not ever wanted but we were able to use the bill as evidence against the tenant who challenged the withholding of the deposit.
Dealing with Aberkil was straightforward, calls were returned quickly and because this was all such a horrible experience, I did not always remember what I was told and had to check again and sometimes again! Thank your Peter for your patience.

Thank you for your comment, very brave of you as most people are too embarrassed to mention that they have had the insects.

On discovering a wasps nest in my flat this week, I called Aberkil where my details were taken and received a phone call from Peter five minutes later saying that he could be with me in the next hour as he was in the area. Delighted with the service and would recommend to all. Many thanks. Sarah
