Termites

1 in 4 Bruneian homes will have termites in their lifetime! They are Brunei's most destructive pests with the average damage caused to a home between $7,000 - $8,000 - and it's not covered by most home insurance policies!

Mice

House mice are active all year, nesting in warm, quiet places like lofts or cavity walls. They constantly gnaw, damaging furnishings & chewing packaging to access food. Mice are known to spread disease. 

Cockroaches

Cockroaches like to live in warm homes, kitchens and wall cavities. They often come out after dark, feeding on any type of food and they may carry diseases. Find out about Rentokil's cockroach control services.

Wasps

Wasps can become a problem in your garden & can enter homes through open windows. Large wasp nests can contain over 25,000 wasps. Nests can be found in lofts, wall cavities, trees, bushes and underground. 

Flies

Whether they’re bluebottles or fruit flies, these pests can carry a wide range of diseases including food poisoning bacteria.

Bed Bugs

Contrary to their name, bed bugs can also be found in cracks & crevices. They feed on human blood & are very difficult to control as they spread quickly. Professional services are recommended to get rid of bed bugs in your home.

Ants

Ants enter houses in search of food. Ant nests are often located on lawns, in warm, dry soil and under paving - look for finely powdered soil. Ant control services are available from Rentokil to treat ant problems.

Rats

Black Rats are the most common in Brunei. Signs of infestation include droppings, smear marks and teeth marks on electric cables, which can be a fire hazard. Rats are also known to spread diseases.
