Throughout the year, different types of pests can be observed in abundance at certain times and in certain seasons. In South Africa, we experience seasonal pest activity as a result of weather conditions which facilitate their reproduction. It’s why we are overwhelmed by flies in summer, when hot, humid climates offer the perfect living environment, and why rats and mice scurry indoors when it’s cold.
When it comes to pest control, knowing what you’re up against is the first step to preventing an infestation from happening to you. To help you out, we’ve put together a useful pest calendar to help you easily determine what kind of pest you are dealing with and when a possible infestation can be expected.
