General Information about Pests:


A 2005 US national study on factors that affect asthma in inner-city children, shows that cockroach allergens appear to worsen asthma symptoms more than other known triggers. This study, funded by the US National Institute of Enviro-nmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the US National In-stitute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), is the first large-scale study to rank asthma triggers according to sev-erity.


Typical ants that are classified as pests include:
Pavement ants (otherwise known as the Sugar Ant)
Pharaoh ants 
Carpenter ants
Argentine ants
Fire Ant (the red imported ant)

Control of species populations are usually done with residual sprays, and bait insecticides. These systems will severely reduce the numbers in a colony.


Because rodents multiply so quickly, just a few can lead to an out-of-control infestation before you know it. Rodents will cause lots of damage because they constantly gnaw and damage may be done to elecrical wiring in Houses alarm systems,
Motor Vehicle Wiring,
Food storage areas.


Not only are their webs a nuisance around the house, but spiders can inflict painful, sometimes dangerous bites.


There are mainly two types of termites in South Africa – Sub-Terrainean Termites (commonly known as white ants) and Harvester termites.
Sub-Terrainean termites eat dead wood and cause the most damage by far. Often tens of thousands of rands in structural damage.
Harvester termites on the other hand eat grass and will damage lawn with unsightly patches where lawn gone. If left they can get totally out of hand and will consume all lawn.
