Local Pest Trends

Subterranean Termites

Bloemfontein is considered a high risk area for termite problems. Subterranean termites (also referred to as "flying ants") replace any wood taken with soil from the excavation of their nest, meaning that they have to constantly return to their nest.

Think you have a Termite problem?

Apart from servicing local businesses and homes, Rentokil in Bloemfontein focuses on commercial silos and outlying farming areas with a need for expert pest control services due to exporting produce and/or goods. 

Fact: Termites primarily feed on wood, but also damage paper, books, insulation, and even swimming pool liners and filtration systems.

Brown rat


The environmental conditions in Bloemfontein and areas around the Free State contribute to rodent infestation. They tend to be a problem for farmlands too. This is especially concerning as rodents pose many health risks to your family or business spreading diseases such as E.coli and Weil's disease to name a few. 

Are rats getting into your home?

“Rats are more than capable of fitting into space the size of a coin. Their bodies contain soft cartilage which makes it possible for them to squeeze through spaces and gaps that at first glance may appear much too small for them. Small cracks or holes in floors, sidewalk grates or vents are an easy way to get to a warm area.” - Rentokil’s Technical Manager, Mario Pluke.

How to get rid of mice

Mice breed at a rapid rate, and an infestation can quickly escalate if left untreated. There are many methods - such as good housekeeping practices, mouse traps and so forth - that you can implement, although a professional solution is usually necessary to prevent and control mice infestation.

Other common pests in Bloemfontein

Bloemfontein experiences many other pests infesting homes and businesses - some of the common pets include: Stored Product Insects, Cockroaches, Mosquitoes and Flies.

Stored Product Insects

The term "Stored product insects" (SPI's) refers to a large number of insects found in food. They infest a variety of stored products more so food products such as grains, cereals, nuts, seeds and even tobacco. Farmers and businesses in the food industry should pay close attention to the signs of an infestation as they contaminate food.


Cockroaches are well known for spreading diseases and posing many serious health risks- inducing asthma in children being one of them. The presence of cockroaches puts you and your family at risk of contracting Salmonella, Dysentry & Gastro-enteritis. A quick response to any signs of the pest is essential in controlling cockroaches, as they may spread to your neighbours home making it easier for them to infest your home again.


Flies are one of the most common pests you will encounter in South Africa and yet they pose a great health risk to humans, pets and livestock. When they infest your home or business they bring the threat of spreading diseases such as E coli. Salmonella and cholera. Some species may even bite humans and animals, often these are found on farms.
