Local Pest Trends
Cockroaches are common throughout Bridgetown and environs. Especially due to the increase of urbanisation as well as humidity levels, cockroaches favour inhabiting kitchens, heated buildings and pipe ducts.
Did you know that cockroaches are a high risk pest to have around your home? They carry a range of serious illnesses including salmonella, dysentery, gastroenteritis and typhoid.
Cockroaches are not only unsightly to have around, but they can damage your business’ reputation as well. If you are in the food retail or food processing industries, or manage bars and restaurants, you need to be especially aware of the risk from cockroaches to your stored food products, although cockroaches can do damage to all types of materials.

Bridgetown and the popular south and west coasts are considered a high risk area for rats and mice. Rodents are attracted to the existing high levels of waste in highly populated areas. This is especially a concern in the sense that rodents spread diseases such as E.coli and Weil’s disease.
“Rats are more than capable of fitting into space the size of a coin. Their bodies contain soft cartilage which makes it possible for them to squeeze through spaces and gaps that at first glance may appear much too small for them. Small cracks or holes in floors, sidewalk grates or vents are an easy way to get to a warm area.” – Rentokil’s Technical Manager, Andrew Collymore.

“We have been operating Shelbury Construction for the past 19 years, very early in our history we tried Rentokil Initial as a subcontractor to provide termite treatment and I can’t recall using anyone else after that first job. The reason for this is simple. They offer a very efficient service at a compatible price. Rentokil is up to date with the latest technology where others merely follow.”
