How does our Parasite treatments work in Cape Town?

This includes addressing any other pest problem you may have thought insignificant like birds perching or roosting, squirrel or other rodent activity as these hosts carry parasites. You can visit our Bird Control Cape Town page or Rat, Mouse or Squirrel Control Cape Town page for more information on the various services we offer related to those individual pest problems.
The type of parasite will also determine the treatment methods we use. We will discuss the best methods applicable to you for your level of infestation and structure.
We will be able to provide you with a customised treatment plan to target all the pest and/or parasite problem areas as well as the best methods to get your specific parasite problem under control.
Parasite control problems in Cape Town are very common, however not always easy to pinpoint as most parasites are so small, they are oftentimes difficult to see with the naked eye.
You may notice that you suddenly experience uncontrolled itchy sensations either in the workplace or at home. More noticeably you may find bite marks on specific parts of your body. The location of the bite marks may help to identify the type of parasite infestation your are dealing with. A bed bug infestation does not cause the same symptoms as an allergic reaction to dust mites etc.

How does a parasite infestation start or spread?
Parasites like bed bugs, fleas, ticks, bird lice or mites etc. are brought into your home or business premises by hitchhiking on a living host i.e. pets (dogs/cats), birds, rats, mice or squirrels and can then easily be transferred to a human host.
We don’t just treat the symptoms we want to help you evacuate those parasitic hitchhikers from your home or business in Cape Town for good.
