It’s worth remembering that pests can be a problem for anyone, and can affect both commercial and residential properties. Pests are just looking for food and shelter. They are not choosy when it comes to setting-up home, and even the cleanest of properties can become a target, if they can find a way in!

Common South African pests include ants, flies, fleas, pigeons, cockroaches as well as rats and mice.

Rentokil knows more about pests than anyone else. The company is the world leader in pest control, combining the expertise of its local teams and global knowledge and R&D.
