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. 


Black rats are the most common in the UAE. 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 Boecker's® cockroach control services.


Common Clothes Moths can be a real nuisance in the home. They lay sticky eggs on natural clothing. Their white caterpillar larvae do the damage by eating clothes, carpets and upholstery and can be very destructive.

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.


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. 


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. Rentokil Boecker® provides professional control measures to treat your ant problems.


Although these may be thought of as pest, spiders are mainly harmless but nevertheless often feared. They can be beneficial as they eat flies and mosquitoes in the home. Learn about pest control services for spiders.


Whether they’re bluebottles or fruit flies, these pests can carry a wide range of diseases including food poisoning bacteria. Professional fly control such as fogging, spray treatments, fly bottles & fly killer units are available from Rentokil Boecker®.
