Rodents, Birds and Other
IS YOUR BUSINESS CLOSING FOR DECEMBER? You might sit with a pest infestation when you resume business in the New Year! Fleas can be dormant for months on end in vacant premises and resurface from the vibrations when the business re-opens. The same applies to any left-behind foodstuff where fruit flies can breed...you’ll walk into a nasty surprise and you’ll want it dealt with pronto. If you have experienced this before, get ahead of the game and schedule a pest control service.
#DidYouKnow Birds can find their way back to their nest from over 2000kms away! Due to their great navigational skills, pigeons were trained and used in ancient Greece to carry the results of the Ancient Olympics. #ServiceMasterSA #Pests #PestControl #SouthAfrica
BIRD LICE Bird lice, also known as bird mites, originate in birds like chickens, pigeons, sparrows, and starlings — but also live near bird nests. They live on and feed on the blood of birds, but can also bite humans. The best way to protect yourself is to avoid contact with birds and bird nests, but what other measures can you use to eradicate the problem?

COMMERCIAL COCKROACH & RODENT CONTROL It’s not only humans that tend to be more active during Summer, the same goes for rodents and cockroaches! We highly recommend all businesses, especially factories and industrial premises, to make use of our Maintenance Pest Control programmes, to ensure your workplace is pest free! Even if you don’t have a current infestation, prevention is always better, and less costly, than cure. #Rodents #Rats #Mice #SummerPests #ServiceMasterSA #Pests #PestControl
Most of us aren’t fans of rats, but a lady from England, loved her pet rat so much that she made him a mattress and matching pajamas! She was so inspired after she started making these “ratresses” for Lord Duncan the rat, that she made more and started selling them on Etsy! What do you think...cute or creepy? #Rats #ServiceMasterSA #Pests #PestControl #SouthAfrica #COVID19 #CoronaVirus
When the temperature starts to drop in winter, rats may seek food and shelter indoors. These rodents stay active throughout the winter. Rats are mammals, meaning they need to maintain a warm body temperature to survive. Coupled with the fact that harsh winter months mean there are fewer food sources readily available, and you can see why rats might decide to call your house “home” when it gets cold out. CLICK BELOW to read which factors can contribute to rats invading your premises.
#DidYouKnow Bats are amongst the gentlest wild mammals in the world. There is such a thing as a vampire bat – but it is only found in one place in South America, weighs only 50g and it draws a little blood from the legs of cattle (never from humans!). #ServiceMasterSA #Pests #PestControl #SouthAfrica
Our very successful rodent treatments usually involve visiting your property (office/factory/home) more than once. We do an initial treatment and at least one follow up visit to re-bait problem areas. Rats breed so quickly that a once-off treatment is not usually enough to control the rat problem. We recommend Monthly Services in high risk locations. #Rats #Mice #RodentControl #ServiceMasterSA #Pests #PestControl #SouthAfrica
We have a range of rodenticides that we use for rat or mice infestation in different areas, depending on your unique situation and safety issues. For example, wax blocks, liquid bait, tracking powder, rodent paste, mouse repellents, snapper traps, glue traps and some others are used in our process. #Rats #Rodentcontrol #ServiceMasterSA #Pests #PestControl #SouthAfrica
