What are Pathogens and why should we need control methods in Cape Town?

Pathogen Control is the control of natural pathogens in the environment. These pathogens can be broken down into Bacteria, Viruses or other microorganisms that can cause disease. There are also a few natural occurring pathogens that can be helpful. We want to help you manage the pathogens that can cause you harm. Nobody voluntarily asks to get sick and that is why we need to manage these pathogens in Cape Town appropriately. Common Pathogen (often referred to as Germs) breeding grounds in your home or business may include your kitchen or bathroom sink, light switches, your washing machine, cell phones, tv remotes, computer keyboards, restaurant menus, ATM and even Credit Card Machine Keypads.

The types of Pathogens found in Cape Town


Bacteria are single celled microbes and unfortunately bacteria are found everywhere. You come into contact with it daily, from your own underarm bacteria to that communal cup in the office that floats around. Bacteria is also found in public toilets or on the handle of that shopping trolley you used on the weekend.


A Virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms. A study in the Journal of Medical Virology reported that cold and flu viruses can survive for 18 hours on hard surfaces.


A Fungus is a kind of living organism i.e. yeast, mould and mushrooms. Mould or mildew are natural byproducts of a humid environment. Exposure to mould can cause health issues like nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, coughing or wheezing, eye irritation, or, in some cases, skin irritation.


Protozoa are single-celled organisms without cell walls and believed to be part of the microbial world because they are microscopic and unicellular. They are also ubiquitous (found everywhere); they are present in all aquatic or moist environments, and their cysts can be found in even the most inhospitable parts of the biosphere. Most are free-living and eat bacteria, algae, or other protozoa. Therefore some protozoans can actually be helpful as it eats harmful bacteria. Regrettably other protozoans can cause serious illnesses in humans.

Foodborne Pathogens and Why You Need to Know About Them


This food borne disease received a lot of attention with the fatal listeriosis outbreak in Cape Town and the broader South Africa during 2017/2018. The bacteria Listeria monocytogenes is found in soil and water and can thus contaminate vegetables. Animals can carry the bacteria without appearing ill and then contaminating foods of animal origin or dairy. The foodborne illness produces fever, muscle aches, and, in many people, diarrhea. Severe infections can cause headaches, meningitis, convulsions, and death.


An infection by the Campylobacter bacterium. It is among the most common bacterial infections of humans, often a foodborne illness. It produces an inflammatory, sometimes bloody, diarrhea or dysentery syndrome, mostly including cramps, fever and pain.

E. coli

E. coli refers to a wide range of bacteria that can cause various diseases, including pneumonia, urinary tract infections, and diarrhea. Most strains of E. coli are harmless to humans. Some strains of E. coli infection symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, and fever.


Salmonella bacteria thrives in the intestinal tract of humans and animals and is excreted in feces. This infection occurs from consumption of raw meats and eggs, contaminated dairy foods such as unpasteurized (raw) milk, or fruits and vegetables contaminated by food handlers.
