Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does Pest Control Take To Start Working?

There is no straightforward answer to this question. How long pest control will take to work will depend entirely on the kind of pest you’re dealing with and how bad the infestation is. On average, you should start seeing dead pests around your home within a few hours. However, it may take weeks to see the full effectiveness of pest control.

Do You Really Need Pest Control?

You’ve most likely already tried the DIY approach to removing pests and found no results. However, you probably know that you can’t leave the problem unsolved as rodents and insects spread disease, and you or your pets can be bitten.


The safety and health of pets, you and your family should come first by getting rid of any form of pest from your house, garage, or yard. Don’t waste time and money on over-the-counter products. Instead, call Pest Managers, the experts in pest control.

Are Children And Pets Affected By Pest Control Treatments?

Safety and customer satisfaction are our top priorities, along with being as environmentally friendly as we can be. All our pest control products are eco-friendly and will cause no harm to children or pets. You can trust our professionally trained technicians to keep your home safe from any toxic sprays that harm the environment or the ones you love.


How Long Does Pest Control Last?

An average pest control treatment will last for 90 days. However, the effectiveness of outdoor applications can be compromised and will last for around 60 days if there is frequent or severe rainfall. Due to the products, we use being eco-friendly, they are biodegradable and eventually disintegrate into the environment. Try to spray your home every 90 days to keep pests out.

Do My Home and Business Need Preventative Pest Control?

Yes. The only strategy that keeps bugs at bay is a preventative one. Unfortunately, regular pest control is often neglected when it should be just as important as any other maintenance in your home or business.


Pest control involves more than just finding bugs and removing them. A vital aspect of maintaining the value, structure, health, and well-being of your house or business is routine preventative pest control. With summers in Cape Town heating up, even more, you are likely to find more bugs around, but if you’re already doing preventive care, you won’t have anything to worry about.

After Pest Control, When Can I Clean?

Light cleanings are often okay three to five days after treatment, as a general rule. Wait around two weeks before doing a more thorough cleaning. If your pest control treatment includes leaving bait around your house, you should be able to clean around them as long as you keep away from the bait. Maybe clean before the exterminator gets there so you won’t need to clean for a while.

How Soon After Pest Control Can I Return Home?

Because of our eco-friendly pest control solutions, you and your family don’t need to worry about “evacuating” your house during treatment. However, if you still feel the need to stay out, 2-4 hours should be fine.

We had endless problems of Ants for years and have tried every single product and service possible, but to no avail, until we were referred to Phillip from Pest Managers who only did one treatment. They spent a few hours around the house and literally now a year later, I have not seen 1 ant. This is really the Best choice that I've made ever.

Pest Managers did an excellent job taking care of our Ant pest control problem. Their efficiency, effectiveness, and timeliness were top notch. The granule bait they used was taken immediately by the ants and three months later, they haven't returned! They were friendly, knowledgeable, and I felt like I got professional pest control service. Clicked on Pest Managers when searching for Pest Control Cape Town, contacted them and received the friendliest service agent. Within 24 hours of making the booking, the guys were at our site for an inspection and treatment! It was a pleasure to work with such a well-organized company. Excellent service at an affordable price! I would like to thank you for the excellent service you provided.

Pest Managers assisted me to sort out birds nesting in my ceiling. Since the first time I contacted them, they were very professional, prompt and frequently communicated timelines and expected contact days. Both teams that came (for the quote and actual service) were friendly, on time and very professional. Hopefully I would not need their services again soon, but I'll gladly recommend them.

Brilliant service for hard to reach bird nest in a triple volume room. Supplied scaffolding and took utmost care not to damage bespoke light fittings and cabinetry. Cleaned up afterwards - left room spic-and-span. Most professional (and friendly) service from start to finish.

I had birds in my roof, i got a few quotes, not only were they the cheapest, there was such great service received from Adrian during the call out. They came and did the job today and a great experience once again. Here's to hoping the tenants in my roof find a more suitable place to call home 🙂
