Rentokil Pest Control to Launch Post-Pest Disinfection Service in South Africa

As an extension to their pest control service ranges, Rentokil will be launching a new pest disinfection service in June 2014 which reduces the risk of the illnesses associated with pest infestations. Pests can carry bacteria and viruses which can pose a serious health risk to people and pets.

These pathogens may be spread throughout an infested property via urine and faeces, as pests forage for food and build nesting sites. Infection can then occur through skin contact (particularly through cuts or wounds), or by consuming contaminated food or water. Rodents, insects and birds can carry a range of disease causing pathogens; including Salmonella, Hantavirus, Leptosprosis and E.Coli.

Rentokil Pest Control's new pest disinfection service uses a unique bactericide to combat this threat; the disinfectant used in the service kills up to 99.9% of pathogens and is certified SABS HACCP food safe.

The pest disinfection service is applied in the form of a spray or mist to all areas of a property, affected by pests. It is non-corrosive, non-staining and safe to be applied to any surface including plastic, soft metals and fabric. The bactericide is effective against bacteria, viruses, moulds and fungi (including spores), and can be used in all types of premises from warehouses, to office buildings and residential homes as part of an integrated pest management solution. Importantly, as the product is food safe, it is also suitable for use in restaurants and food outlets.

Mario Pluke, Technical Manager, Rentokil Pest Control comments: “If a business or home is faced with a pest infestation, it is vital to deal not only with the unwanted visitors, but also any disease causing organisms they may have left behind. Our pest disinfection biocide kills up to 99.9% of pathogens, including those associated with pest problems including E.Coli and Salmonella, ensuring staff and family members remain safe.”
