  • Offers good after-sales care
  • Attends to service requests after hours


  • Poor customer service
  • Reports on unsatisfactory work

011 Pest Control has been in the business for 12 years. They’re one of the established and sought-after full-service companies that specialise in exterminating pests. 

They provide solutions for pest control, termite protection, mosquito prevention and control, fire ant control, and wildlife control to both commercial and residential customers.

One thing we found remarkable about 011 Pest Control is their 24/7 servicing. Car pests can be a nuisance and the longer the infestation in the vehicle, the more likely owners are at risk of bringing the pests into their homes.

Being always available to take service calls is a great feat that gives 011 Pest Control a competitive advantage.

We like that 011 Pest Control is serious about quality control, making sure that all their fumigators and technicians are highly-trained and have ample experience in working with vehicle and residential fumigations. 

011 Pest Control’s technicians are often praised by their clients for their attitude during work and their apparent know-how about getting rid of pests. Clients find the technicians friendly and efficient in getting the job done.

011 Pest Control is also often complimented for its prompt response and effective solutions to recurring infestations.

We’re also impressed with the company’s after-sales care. Their technicians are tasked to come back to sites for checkups to make sure it’s no longer infested.

Within 30 days after the job, 011 Pest Control offers their one-year maintenance programme to prevent the pests from returning.

Although most of their clients are more than happy with their performance, we did hear some complaints about 011 Pest Control’s quality of work.

We were told that there was a case where the technicians weren’t careful while doing the job so some electronics were damaged. 

Another thing we think 011 Pest Control is their customer service. As their hotline is up 24 hours a day and they receive regular calls, some clients grumble that their calls can’t get through.

Because of this, it’s a hassle for customers to file a report about their complaints and it takes a long time for them to be resolved. We did notice though that 011 Pest Control is trying its best to reply to every complaint and resolve issues.

2. Kurt’s Pest Control

  • Accredited by the SAPCA and Department of Agriculture
  • Over 20 years of experience


  • Short work hours
  • Lack of customer service

Kurt’s Pest Control is one of the big names in the pest control industry in and around Johannesburg. They’re backed up by over 20 years of experience in residential and commercial fumigations and pest control.

Kurt’s Pest Control treats several types of pests including cockroaches, rodents, mosquitoes, ants, termites, ticks, fleas, lice and bed bugs – some of which can easily breed in car seats.

We like that Kurt’s Pest Control uses up-to-date technology in treating infestations, making their work more efficient and accurate.

Clients choose Kurt’s Pest Control as their go-to contractor for their exterminator needs because of the credibility the company has built for itself. 

Their team is composed of qualified and highly-experienced technicians who, as clients describe, always go beyond what’s expected of them. 

We’re also impressed that Kurt’s Pest Control is accredited by the South African Pest Control Practice and the Department of Agriculture. They’re also backed by Bayer Coopers ES.

Their workmanship is commendable too. Kurt’s Pest Control’s clients compliment the team for their swift response to service calls, high-quality work, and impressive customer handling.

We were told that one thing clients love about Kurt’s Pest Control is they always help customers make informed decisions, which we think is a great feat.

It would be great if they can hire more customer service representatives, though. We’ve heard some minor complaints about the company being difficult to reach out to sometimes.

3. Fumigation Worx

  • Offers a broad range of services
  • Accredited by Pest Control Industries Training Academy, SAPCA, and National Contract Cleaners Association (NCCA)


  • Reports on ineffective fumigation
  • Weak customer service

One thing we like about Fumigation Worx is they offer the latest equipment and technology mixed with their continuous training programmes on fumigation, cleaning, and hygiene at all times. 

All of their technicians are registered with the Department of Agriculture, and team leaders are fully qualified technicians with registered “P” numbers. The company is also accredited by Pest Control Industries Training Academy, SAPCA, and NCCA.

Fumigation Worx’s crew were noted for their experience and knowledge of the various techniques appropriate for their clients’ needs. Their clients also commend their technicians for their professionalism and punctuality.

Moreover, clients appreciate that Fumigation Worx offers a wide range of fumigation services specifically tailored for different situations.

We think that their deals are of great value given their affordable prices along with the guaranteed quality of their services.

We also appreciate their after-sales service where they offer a 2-month guarantee for all their work. In addition, Fumigation Worx vouches for their termite treatments for 5 years, which is awesome.

It’s disappointing to hear minor complaints about Fumigation Worx’s ineffective fumigation. The client claims that they had to pay extra for the corrective measure.

In addition, we were told that some of the staff members are rude when handling customers. There are also reports where clients mention they experienced racism while dealing with the company.

  • Very affordable rates
  • Technicians are professionals and passionate


  • Small team
  • Short on customer service representatives

D & D Pest Control Pty Ltd is a relative newcomer in the industry led by a small team that deals with all kinds of pests in houses, cars, garages, and backyards.

The first thing we found remarkable about D & D Pest Control Pty Ltd is their very cheap rates for their services. For as low as R 350, they treat ants, termites, cockroaches, indoor rodents and other kinds of insects.

One of their commitments is making pest control accessible to those living on minimum wage, and we find this really admirable.

Although still a budding business, D & D Pest Control Pty Ltd was able to produce repeat clients. Their team is recommended for having experienced and patient technicians who are careful in handling hazardous materials.

We’re told they produce high-quality work and produce effective solutions. Clients also like that they’re very passionate about their jobs and always go the extra mile in assuring that customers are satisfied. 

We’re also impressed with D & D Pest Control Pty Ltd’s client servicing. They’re responsive to questions and are always friendly and helpful in their replies.

Too bad they’re only quite a small team, which means they can only take several calls a day.

Unfortunately, this also has a bearing on appointment setting. Also because of limited manpower, they can only take on limited service requests at a time.

Despite this, we think they’re a promising company – we think their team is poised to grow in the next few years as they expand their business. And that’s why they made it to this list.

  • Large team
  • Uses certified and high-quality products


  • Expensive
  • Customer service is difficult to reach sometimes

Pest Protect is another highly-regarded pest control and fumigation contractor in South Africa. They’re known for efficient pest control, bird proofing, and hygiene services.

Although they’re one of the big companies dealing with extermination, they’re actually one of the newly-established ones. Regardless, they are already partnered with private and public organisations and businesses, which impressed us.

We also found it noteworthy that Pest Protect recognises the complexity of fumigations. Thus, they make sure that their technicians are registered to carry out services using gasses such as Methyl Bromide, Phosphine and Sulfuryl Fluoride.

The company is also accredited by SAPCA and is an associate of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry, and Fisheries.

We also like that they make sure to use the newest technology, and continuously conduct research to find the safest and best products to use in vehicles, residential, and commercial areas.

Pest Protect’s clients are wowed with their performance as the team always produces great results, and fast! Clients also compliment the technicians and staff for being professional and hospitable. 

As for their pricing, we hear Pest Protect’s rates are a little higher than other companies, which might be a dealbreaker for those on a budget. Nonetheless, their clients think the quality of their workmanship reflects the price customers pay.

Lastly, we were also told their customer service is difficult to connect to at times. Although this might be occasional when service requests come flooding in, but we hope Pest Protect can address this.
