Protecting businesses and homes in South Africa from Pests for 50 Years
Termites are widely regarded as a damaging pest to have in your home or business. Termites (sometimes known as ‘white ants’) can cause extensive damage to the structure of a building if they are not managed or controlled by qualified pest professionals.
All parts of South Africa are at risk. Densely populated areas face a greater risk due to the large concentration of buildings and associated climate.

Termites do - however - leave signs indicating their presence and often it’s termite damage that is seen, rather than the actual termites themselves.
Here are a few common signs of termites that you might see (or hear) around your home or business:
