Pest Control In Bracknell
The PEST UK Bracknell office is run by our longest serving pest control technician Stephen Tiller.
Stephen Tiller has been in pest control for nearly 30 years and has been with PEST UK for 20 years. In this area we cover a wide range of establishments on pest control contracts from Schools, Housing Associations smaller food companies to large scale industry such as Syngenta, Syngenta Farm and TK Water Systems.
The PEST UK pest control Bracknell office is on the London road that runs between Wokingham and Bracknell. This office is very handy for the pest control technician based in Bracknell to reach pest control problems in both Wokingham and Bracknell. Don’t expect to find him at the office though as most of the time he will be in his PEST UK pest control van attending call outs. When the pest control technician is not at the Bracknell office the telephone calls are diverted to the central office in Reading. The Bracknell area has been serviced by PEST UK for many years which is why we have opened a local pest control office in the Bracknell area.
Pest control in Bracknell
Bracknell is a fairly ‘new’ town compared with its neighbours with a modern sewer system which means it does not suffer from pest control problems of rats and mice emerging from broken or damaged sewers as much as some older towns. It still has a wide range of pest control control issues in domestic premises including rats, ants, cluster flies, mice, bed bugs, fleas, cockroaches, wasps, squirrels and bees.
Bracknell is a town and parish in the Borough of Bracknell Forest in Berkshire. It is11 miles to the east of Reading, 9 miles south of Maidenhead and 34 miles west of central London.
The town is surrounded, on the east and south, by Swinley Woods and Crowthorne Woods. The urban area has absorbed parts of many local outlying areas including Warfield, Winkfield and Binfield, and is itself, along with Binfield, a component of the Greater London Urban Area as defined by the ONS.
Bracknell is first recorded in a Winkfield Boundary Charter of 942AD as Braccan heal, and may mean “Nook of land belonging to a man called Bracca”. An early form of the town’s name, Brakenhale, still survives as the name of one of its schools.
There is a Bronze Age barrow at Bill Hill. Easthampstead Park was a favoured royal hunting lodge in Windsor Forest and Catherine of Aragon was banished there until her divorce was finalised. It was later the home of the Trumbulls who were patrons of Alexander Pope from Binfield.
To the north-east of the town is the Quelm Stone, a standing stone, and to the south-west, just over the border in Crowthorne, is Caesar’s Camp, an Iron Age hill fort.
One of the oldest buildings in the town is the Old Manor public house, a 17th-century brick manor house featuring a number of priest holes. Next door once stood the Hind’s Head coaching inn, where it is said Dick Turpin used to drink. It’s believed that there were once underground tunnels between the two, along which the famous highwayman could escape from the authorities.
The oldest place of worship in the town is the parish church of St Michael and St Mary Magdalene in Easthampstead. There has been a church there since Saxon times, although the present building dates from the mid 19th century, except for the lower portions of the Tudor tower.
The town is home to companies such as Panasonic, Fujitsu, Dell, HP Inc., Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Siemens, Riverbed, Honeywell, Intercall, Broadcom, Avnet Technology Solutions, Novell, Vodafone, Honda,
The Southern Industrial Area houses the head office of Waitrose. The 70-acre site which houses the Waitrose head office also houses the central distribution centre. Waitrose has operated from the town since the 1970s.
Manufacturing industry has largely gone from the town since the 1980s.
The Thomas Lawrence brickworks on the north side of the town was famous for ‘red rubber’ bricks found in the Royal Albert Hall and Westminster Cathedral, and in restoration work at 10 Downing Street and Hampton Court Palace.
In the town centre was the 12-storey Winchester House, formerly owned by 3M who moved to new premises in Farley Wood on the town’s northern edge in 2004. The building was demolished and is to be replaced with blocks of flats.
The Met Office maintained a presence in the town until 2003, when it relocated to Exeter in Devon.
The town of Bracknell has two railway stations, Bracknell and Martins Heron, both of which are on the Waterloo to Reading Line, built by the London and South Western Railway and now operated by South Western Railway.

The town has good road links and is situated at the end of the A329, midway between Junction 3 of the M3 and Junction 10 of the M4 motorways.

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.|
