Solar panel clean and proofing in Corby - 1st June 2022
Pestforce Pest Control Kettering have just completed a solar panel proofing job for a customer. The customer had been looking for over a year, for a reliable company to do the job. The panels are proofed with a black solar mesh this has 10mm squares so it will block out all birds even tiny ones as the mesh squares are small. It is attached with special clips that do not damage panels and can easily be removed for access. The birds had made a mess of the gutters, they were totally blocked along with the downpipe, so we cleaned all of these out so it is now how it should be. The customer was very happy and left a nice review. So, if you have a solar panel issue with birds? Please give us a call we will solve the problem for you before it gets out of control.
Double wasp nests in porch in Kettering - 15th July 2022
Pestforce Pest Control Kettering had a call about wasps in a porch in Kettering. On inspection it was evident that two nests are active one above each porch. Both nests had two entry points and both were angry. If you think you have a nest try looking on the south facing side as they prefer the sunny side. To eradicate these nests a hand duster was used to do this you have to get very close and puff in some insecticide dust this kills the whole nest in 24 hrs we find this very efficient. We have equipment that will reach 12 metres so we can reach the high up nest in a safe and efficient manner.

Pestforce Pest Control Kettering were called to attend a property in Kettering where a swarm of honeybees had settled in and were making a home in the roof of the house. They had only been settled a few days, so using our knowledge and experience, we decided to lure them out with a bee nuc. A nuc hive is centred on a Queen bee, which is then used as a lure for the rest of the colony to follow, the nuc is placed close by to the swarm. This is proving to be effective and most of the bees have entered the lure hive. This week we have scheduled another visit and will hope to have them all in the lure hive. We will check we have the Queen and then we can relocate this colony to a peaceful location.
