Rats and mice are opportunistic scavengers flourishing in urban areas from Southcote to Woodley, that offer easy food sources and shelter. Rodents are omnivorous, consuming anything from contents of refuse and compost bins to discarded left-overs and fruits and seeds in gardens and parks or even food in our homes if they get in. If you’ve seen signs of rats or mice the safest and most effective way to get rid of rodents is by professional, targeted treatments.
From the ruins of its medieval monastery to cutting edge business parks, Reading has embraced change over its 1,400 year heritage. The centre of Reading is on a low ridge of land between the River Thames and River Kennet, close to their confluence, which reflects the town's history as a river port. Both of these rivers are navigable, and Caversham Lock, Blake's Lock, County Lock, Fobney Lock and Southcote Lock are all within a short distance of the town. The 19th century saw the arrival of the Great Western Railway and the development of the town's brewing, baking and seed growing businesses. Today Reading is a commercial centre, with involvement in information technology and insurance and a retail centre serving a large area of the Thames Valley.
As Reading has grown, its suburbs have spread: to the west between the two rivers into the foothills of the Berkshire Downs as far as Calcot, Tilehurst and Purley; to the south and south-east on the south side of the Kennet as far as Whitley Wood, Lower Earley and Woodley; and to the north of the Thames into the Chiltern Hills as far as Caversham Heights, Emmer Green and Caversham Park Village. The Lower Earley development, built in 1977, was one of the largest private housing developments in Europe at that time, extending the urban area of Reading as far as the M4 motorway, which acts as the southern boundary of the town. Reading is now the most populous town in the UK not to have city status.
Every year Reading hosts the Reading Festival, which has been running since 1971.The festival is the largest of its kind in the UK aside from the Glastonbury Festival. The Reading Beer Festival was has also now grown to one of the largest beer festivals in the UK. Visitors are also attracted to Reading for its shopping, history and as a base to explore the Thames valley along its seven miles of river frontage. Many holiday on the River Thames itself in leisure, private and hire boats. Locals and visitors alike are catered for by a mix of hotels, restaurants, cafes, bistros, pubs and bars. These institutions and those who frequent them can inadvertently offer a source of food scraps for vermin such as rats and mice, cockroaches, pigeons and flies.
