Durban Cockroach Image


Cockroaches are very common throughout Durban. The high humid conditions we have in KZN provides a conducive environment for cockroaches to thrive in. Being a port based city, Durban has an influx of cockroaches arriving via ships from other countries.

Durban Mouse Image

The Rats and Mice population in Durban

Durban and the KwaZulu-Natal region are considered a high risk area for rats and mice. Rodents are more prominent in highly populated areas, due to them being attracted to waste,providing them with ample food sources and shelter. This is a concerning factor, as rodents spread harmful diseases that could impact your health, and your business' reputation. 

Problem with rodents invading 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.

Find out about how to get rid of rats that invade your home or business.

How to get rid of mice

A mice problem in your home or business can quickly escalate if left untreated as they breed at  rapid rates.

Birds can be a real nuisance for businesses, causing damage to roof tiles, blocking guttering and leaving droppings that may spread diseases and corrode building material. Our bird control experts in Durban provide humane, discreet and cost-effective bird control services.


Ants travel widely in search of food, often travelling through unsanitary areas before making their way into your food cupboard. If left unchecked larger infestation may occur, often seen with small piles of earth at the base of a building's exterior walls. Our experts provide a variety of services to safely get rid of ants.

Stored product insects

The term “Stored Product Insects” or “SPI’s” covers a number of insects including beetles, weevils, moths and mites that can be found in stored food products such as grains, cereals, dried fruit, nuts, seeds and even tobacco. SPI's contaminate food products, they have been a growing problem in Durban's tobacco and spice industries contact us for help with SPI's


Flies are an issue due to Durban's warm and humid weather. Flies pose serious health risks to humans and animals as they are known to spread a range of diseases, like Salmonella and E.coli. When left uncontrolled, flies have the potential to turn into a serious infestation. Rentokil offers fly control services, which includes our sought after Lumnia LED fly killers.
