"I've been with Rentokil Initial for the past 20 years. I started out as a technician in our Initial Hygiene division and progressed through various roles within the business. I have managed our Multi business in Bloemfontein / Lesotho and the Northern Cape Business, later assuming the role of National Project Manager. I've returned to Operations in 2017 as Branch Manager for Initial Hygiene up until until recently. Currently,  I am managing the Pest Control Division for Cape Town and the Western Cape.

Cape Town Local Pest Trends

American Cockroach

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are very common throughout Cape Town. Increasing urbanisation as well as humidity levels mean that cockroaches favour kitchens, heated buildings and pipe ducts.

Did you know that cockroaches are a high risk pest to have around your home? They carry a range of serious illnesses including salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis and typhoid. The most common cockroaches in Cape Town are the American and German cockroaches.

Cockroach Control Solutions

Cockroaches are not only unsightly to have at home, but they can damage your business' reputation. If you are in the food retail or food processing industries, or manage bars and restaurants, you need to be especially aware of the risk from cockroaches to your stored food products, as well as to your brand image should customers see cockroaches on the premises.

Learn more about the cockroach control solutions we can provide for your business and home. 

Brown rat

Rodents

Cape Town and the Western Cape are considered a high risk area for rats and mice. Rodents are attracted to the high levels of waste in highly populated areas. This is especially concerning as rodents spread diseases such as E.coli and Weil's disease. 

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.

Read more about how to get rid of rats on your premises.

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 for more serious mice infestations.

Read more about our solutions to get rid of mice and prevent them in the first place.

Other pests in Cape Town

Other common pests in Cape Town

Cape Town sees many other pests infesting homes and businesses - some of the common pets include: bed bugs, termites, birds and fleas.

Bed bugs

Because the City of Cape Town receives so many visitors and tourists every year, bed bugs commonly get transported to and from hospitality establishments, and tend to hide in luggage where they can be transferred to homes. Learn more about how to get rid of bed bugs.

Birds

Birds can be a nuisance to have around; especially when you have guests visiting your premises on a regular basis. Their droppings can cause damage to buildings and equipment, and they can also carry diseases. See our range of bird proofing methods.

Termites

One of the most destructive pests to have around are termites. They eat away at the structure of your property, causing damage as well as health and safety risks. The first step in getting rid of termites is a full termite inspection.

Fleas

Fleas are a common problem in homes around Cape Town; especially in residences with pets. Flea bites can be uncomfortable for your pets and you. The most common signs of a flea problem is pets scratching, flea eggs and flea dirt.

Customer Quotes

Rat Control Services

“I just want to compliment you on Sasha's work. She was very professional and put me at ease with the rat problem in my roof. She explained everything to me and I was very impressed with her work. I think you can get `a few more ladies in. Was very pleasant to work with her. Thanks Sasha and the Rentokil team.”

Pest Control Services

“Too often we do not give credit where credit is due, believing that a person is simply doing their job and you are paying for the service provided. However, having Vuyo Mqomboti doing our pest control feels like we have made a friend and are dealing with someone who honestly cares. Vuyo had given us “instructions” regarding our problem areas (holes in walls/doors etc) which we have followed through with and to our great satisfaction we seem to have our rat problem under control, and as for the cockroaches well those critters are no longer running under our desks and sending us screaming! 

Vuyo deserves (in our eyes) to be recognised for his professionalism, friendliness and knowledge of the job he does, I am sure that it is not always the most pleasant of jobs but he is always happy, cheerful and a pleasure to have around."

FAQs

Learn more about the questions our Cape Town pest control experts get asked most frequently:


  • When can buildings be entered after flea services?

    People with asthma or sinus should preferably not enter the treated property for 5 hours after a flea treatment has been done. Generally, 3 hours after the treatment has finished is regarded as safe to enter the premises.


  • What about my pets?
