Termites can feed on wood for 24 hours-a-day without sleeping, a termite infestation can quickly lead to costly repairs and structural failure.

Bed bugs (bed bugs/psyllids)

Bed bugs are known to be challenging to manage as they shelter in the narrowest of gaps such as seams of mattresses, bed-frame, curtain edges or behind furniture.


The Aedes mosquito can lay eggs about three times in its lifetime, and about 100 eggs are produced each time.


Black Rats are the most common in Hong Kong. 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.


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.


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.
