    Rodents commonly forage in a 50-metre radius and one colony may be dominating an entire building.


    Good hygiene, building maintenance and targeted grounds keeping will really cramp their style.


    Flies often breed in areas that are often overlooked during your cleaning, such as floor drains and bins.


    Birds seem harmless, but they harbour several diseases that can be transmitted to humans.



    These four-footed foes often carry diseases and the first line of defence is making your property unattractive.


    These pests are easily transmitted among people and pets, and then transported to new locales.
