Fleet is located in the county of Hampshire and is part of Hart District (Hart District Council). It is the major town f the district. The 2008 population forecast for Fleet was 31,000, although this does not include surrounding areas such as Elvetham Heath and Church Crookham. In 2011, 2012 & 2013 Hart district was voted the best place to live in the UK by the Halifax Quality of Life study. This is due to the highly affluent majority of the population, better weather and health conditions, high levels of access to leisure space and the towns situation surrounded by countryside.
Fleet is locally famous for its pond, the largest freshwater lake in Hampshire, and quaint High Street with traditional Victorian and Edwardian look and its market.
The site of Fleet was originally heathland. The name Fleet was probably derived from the Norman French word La Flete meaning a stream or shallow water – a reference to the Fleet Pond from which fish had been taken for the monks in Winchester in Medieval times.
The area that was to become Fleet had infertile, shallow and sandy soil covered in gorse, heather and bracken which held little attraction to agriculture and, compared to the rest of the county, the Fleet area has yielded few archaeological finds due to it’s unattractive soil. Isaac Taylor’s Map of Hampshire (1759) shows only three habitations in the area that was later to become Fleet.
In 1792 the Basingstoke Canal opened. The canal passed through the town site, but apart from a few inns to serve the passing trade it had little effect on the locality. The railway came to Fleet in 1840. The railway company promoted Fleet Pond for a destination for day excursions and many people came down from London to skate on the Pond during the winter. As in many parts of Britain, there was a building boom between the First and Second World Wars.
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.|
