Blog

PESTUK (formerly Berkshire and Basingstoke Pest Control) is a leading pest control service in the south of England, for both commercial and domestic pest control.

We’re pretty sure you don’t really want too many details about who or what might be infesting your home, but sometimes you will need a little more information.

Hopefully this blog will answer any questions you may have relating to pests in your home or business premises – and if it doesn’t, just ask and we’ll find the answer for you.

We will also use this blog to for non-pest topics that we hope you will find useful or even just to raise a smile. So, just like the service we offer, we hope this blog will be useful, friendly and easy to understand.

Here is a list of what to look out for, month by month.
