Pest Control Companies in South Africa

As a home owner, you want to be able to control and eliminate pests in your home. This, however, is not always easy, which is why you should work with pest control companies that can assist you in finding the perfect solution for your needs, while considering the environment around you as well.


There are many different pests that can be found in homes all over South Africa, including termites, mice, rats, flies and cockroaches. They will all require a different product or method in order to be eliminated and there will be more than one option available for each pest. If you work with professional pest control companies, you can ask their advice on the best products to use, as well as possible safety risks in and around your home.


Pest control companies can also be beneficial for builders and contractors, as they need to ensure that the premises is free of termites before they can start building. They don’t want to have to go back and spend a lot of money to remove termites from their newly built building, especially if this could have been prevented. Pest control companies can inspect the premises and make sure that there are no termites present. The ground can be pre-treated so that it forms a barrier around your home and the surrounding areas. This is a great idea as prevention is always a much better option to go with.


Working with Chemicals


If you have pets or children in your home, you always need to consider the products you use to make sure that you do not use anything harmful. Pest control companies can advise you on the options you have, the products you can use, and how often they should be applied. This will largely depend on the extent to which pests have been present in your home recently. The ability to have professional advice and guidance is essential for home owners, and it’s always a good idea to speak to an expert in this field.


It’s always important not to try and work with chemicals and try and do pest control on your own. Rather contact a professional pest control company to help you to determine if it’s the right solution for your needs, and also whether or not you can use it around pets and children.


Depending on the pests you have in your home, you might need more than one visit from pest control companies in order to apply multiple treatments, or phases of chemicals that can be effective over time. Always make sure what your options are and choose the one that is safest for your environment. Make sure you understand the process and duration of the treatment.
