Guide for Pest Control Cape Town

Cockroach Facts

Cape town is infested with all types of cockroaches. The reason for the constant cockroach control and insecticide applications are due to factors like increased housing development and urbanization, changes in the weather patters resulting in increased humidity, which causes cockroach growth explosions in restaurants and hotels, etc.

Cape Town is infested with mainly American cockroaches and German roaches. We also see increased infestations of Oriental cockroaches in domestic properties. Don’t hesitate to get a professional cockroach killer to exterminate these dangerous critters asap!

How to get rid of Cockroaches?

Cockroaches at home can be embarrassing, unsightly and can even tarnish a business reputation as well as to your brand image should customers see cockroaches on the premises. Do not ignore this problem! You need to use professional pesticides to permanently rid your premises of this problem.

What attracts cockroaches?

What attracts cockroaches to your home? To have the best chance of keeping cockroaches at bay, there are a few steps to follow. Keep food packed away and sealed properly. Make sure to give the area a deep clean and de-clutter. Make sure you don’t have any leaking pipes as this will attract many cockroaches.

IPM & Bio-safe Pesticides / insecticides

Part of the services we offer is IPM which stands for Integrated Pest Management, which includes deep and thorough inspections to appliances and all crack and crevices for insect and rodent activity. Thereafter we use a combination of bio-safe pesticides/insecticides and gel and granular treatments for successful permanent extermination.

Bed bugs Facts

Cape Town is a tourist destination hot-spot, which means we receive many visitors every year from all around the world. Most clients always try a cheap bed bug insecticide to D.I.Y eradicate the problem, however, this is not always easy or effective because you need to target specific nesting areas and have knowledge on bedbugs. Many insects and bugs are very resilient to off-the-shelf bed bug sprays.

Bed bugs are excellent travellers too and get transported to and from many hospitality places where they travel in luggage bags and can easily be transferred from one hotel or B&B to your home. You need an insecticide with a long-term residual for the control of bed bugs.

Fleas Facts

How to get rid of fleas? Because cape town can be very windy at times of the year we see a high flea infestation where the eggs of fleas are distributed through high winds. This can result in very unhappy and frustrated pets once they become victims of fleas.

The quickest way to identify if you have a flea infestation is to look for signs of pets scratching, flea eggs and flea dirt. Take the time to inspect your pets regularly and visit your local VET to get your animal treated first before you have your home fumigated for fleas.

Rat Facts

Rats and Mice are a very common occurrence and a high risk in the Cape Town and Western Cape areas. Rats and Mice and other rodents are commonly attracted to the food waste from restaurants and high levels of food waste in high-density domestic areas like bin rooms in security complexes. This is an attractant and rodents thrive and breed rapidly under these conditions.
This aggravates the spread of dangerous diseases such as E.coli and Weil’s disease. Many establishments have rat traps and baiting stations installed to curb this epidemic in Cape Town.

Rat poison

If you’ve tried off-the-shelf rat poison and it has not been effective then you are not alone. Many homeowners try this approach first because it’s a cost-effective approach, however, these poisons are not always effective as they have a shelf life like most products and lose their efficacy after a few weeks.
Professional rat poison and baits are a lot more effective as we use fresh baits every time. We also change the baits up and use a combination of fresh wax blocks, pellets, pasta sachets and liquid bait, always yielding fast and effective results.

Mice Facts

Mice breed at a much higher rate than rats which means a house mouse infestation can quickly escalate if ignored.

So how do you get rid of mice?
Due diligence and good housekeeping can minimize the risk of mice entering your house. Do not keep pet food out for long periods of time.

Mouse Traps
Many clients first attempt to use an off-the-shelf mouse trap or sticky glue boards, however, these methods are inhumane and not very effective.

If, however, you already have a mouse infestation and you need a solution immediately – do not hesitate to call a professional exterminator today.

Pest Control Equipment
