The PEST UK Central Reading Pest Control Office

The Pest Control Reading Central Office run by the Pest Control General Manager Scott Hyslop.

Reading is the largest town in Berkshire and is situated on the Thames and the river Kennet. Reading’s history dates back to the 8th century. The ruins of Reading Abbey can still be seen today which is within Forbury Gardens and attracts tourists throughout the world. Reading was severely impacted by the Civil war as there was a siege which effected trade. The 19th century saw the arrival of the railway which benefitted the towns brewing, baking and seed growing businesses in the town. Little damage was done to the town during either world wars except for a single plane in February 1943 attacked the town leaving 41 dead and over 100 injured.

Nowadays Reading is a commercial centre for information technology companies as well as Insurance. Major companies such as ING Direct, Microsoft and Hibu have their headquarters in Reading. There are three main business parks within Reading, Thames Valley Park, Green Park Business Park and Arlington Business Park. The town has expanded to include Caversham and in the 70’s the largest housing estate was built (Lower Earley). The local government of Reading does not actually control all the people of Reading as large areas of Earley, Woodley, Charvil, Twyford, Hurst, Purley, Calcot, Theale and Tilehurst are controlled by Wokingham Borough and West Berkshire Councils.

Reading is one of the UK’s top ten retail destinations with top brands and a big shopping mall called The Oracle which boasts a cinema, plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. Reading has a venue called The Hexagon which hosts comedians, conventions, plays and musical acts. The town has a University which is ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world. Reading hosts the Reading music festival annually which was attended by 90,000 people in 2013 and has been running since 1961.

Reading have a football club partly owned by a local millionaire (John Madejski) who currently play in The Championship which is the second tier of English Football, the stadium is also named after him. PEST UK have a pest control contract at his school in Reading. There is also a rugby team called London Irish who play in the Aviva Premiership. Reading also hosts a half marathon every year which attracts 16,000 competitors and started back in 1983.

Pest Control in The Reading Central Area

As PEST UK started its pest control operations in Reading and it is the largest town in Berkshire as expected it is the area with the most PEST UK Pest Control Contracts ranging from restaurants, offices, schools, garages, Ambulance Stations, hospitals, pubs and clubs to private homes, farms and old peoples homes. Apart from the PEST UK pest control contract base, PEST UK carry out many pest control one off treatments for estate agents, housing associations and domestic premises in the Reading area. The pests include: wasp nests, bees, ants, bed bugs, rats, squirrels, mice, foxes, moles, cluster flies, fleas and all other types of insect pests. There is a fairly old sewer system in the central Reading area, this leads to an increased incidence of rat, mouse and cockroach problems where the sewer system is broken or breached. We regally treat for pest control problems for rodents and Oriental cockroaches emerging from the central Reading sewer system. As well as old sewers Reading has 2 rivers, a canal and railway lines through the centre. These provide pest control problems as they supply food and shelter to rats, mice, squirrels and some insect pests. 

Pest Control Contracts for Schools in Reading: PEST UK have contracts at many schools in the Reading area, including Reading School, The Abbey Junior & Senior Schools and many more. We carry out pest control ‘one off’ treatments for wasps, fleas, cockroaches, rats, mice, squirrels and fox culling as well having pest control contracts at others. The reason why they choose PEST UK over Reading Brough Council and other pest control companies is that all the technicians at PEST UK are CRB checked, PEST UK operates 7 days a week, work unsociable hours as well as and provide a same day service. Fox culling is an important part of pest control in schools. Reading schools suffer from foxes fouling playing fields and living under buildings, especially the pota cabin type. PEST UK have a fully qualified and licensed firearms pest control technician. When shooting is not an option PEST UK can also trap foxes.
