The survey was conducted alongside Rentokil’s Global Pestaurant Day celebrations that took place around the world on 4 June 2014, while South Africa’s Pestaurant event took place on the 31st May at the Good Food and Wine Show. Whilst Rentokil experts are used to helping customers gain control of their pest problems, these events gave attendees the opportunity to quite literally eat their fears by sampling edible bug delicacies, such as chocolate covered ants.
Nathalie Leblond, Marketing Communications Manager, comments: “When pests invade your home or business, you need a fast, reliable service to eliminate risk of damage to your property and the health of those within it. Finding cockroaches in your home or business can be very distressing. As known carriers of diseases such as Salmonella, Dysentery & Gastro-enteritis, exposure to this pest also poses significant health risks. If you have noticed an unpleasant, lingering odour under sinks, behind appliances or in store cupboards, it’s time to check for signs of cockroaches.
