Pest Control in Ascot
PEST UK get rid of pests in Ascot and the surrounding area. Ascot’s PEST UK office is run by our longest serving pest control technician, Steve Tiller.
Ascot is most famous for its race course. It’s situated close to Windsor Great Park, Virginia Water and Wentworth Golf Course. It is quite a wealthy area with many fine houses and estates. Foreign Royalty as well as our own live in the area. Much of the land is owned by The Crown.
Ascot racecourse employs over 70 full time members of staff and hosts 25 days of racing each year. Royal Ascot is the most famous race meeting held for 5-days in June each year. It is attended by up to 300,000 people and is considered a major event in the British social calendar.
PEST UK have many clients in the area: private and state schools, a Stud Farm, a Brewery, Polo Centre, Private Housing complexes, a Recycling Plant, Restaurants and Private Domestic Houses. Some have pest control contracts and some call us on a regular basis to deal with the ‘normal’ pest control problems that include: ants, bees, bed bugs, cluster flies, rats, mice, squirrels, cockroaches, wasps, wasp nests, hornets, birds and other pest control pest problems. Ascot is a small wealthy town that does not suffer from rat problems associated with old or broken sewers in some towns.
There is a railway line that runs through Ascot which does create pest control problems around that area in the form of rats and mice. This is because railway lines provide food and shelter for rats and mice as well as a route through Ascot. Ascot lies between the M4 and the M3 motorways with the A329 connecting both roads. The town is split into 3 parts, Ascot, South Ascot and North Ascot. Many people commute into London or Reading for work by train runs to Waterloo in London.
Of the senior schools in the area there are a number of girls schools, including Heathfield School, St George’s School and St Mary’s School. The local secondary school in nearby Sunningdale, Charters School which opened in 1958 for just 400 pupils, gained its name due to being built on part of the grounds of the former home of Montague Burton.
Some of the pests we deal with:
|Rats||You may see rats during daylight hours but they prefer to operate at night.|
|Ants||Worker ants will frequently enter dwellings foraging for food, particularly sweet substances.|
|Cockroaches||Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal so they are more likely to be seen at night.|
|Squirrels||The most common complaint about Squirrels is when they take residence in a loft space.|
|Mice||You may see, hear or smell a mouse problem or see other evidence such as burrowing in insulation or soil.|
|Wasps||Wasps are aggressive and will sting readily if they think the nest is in danger.|
