Dead Easy Eco-friendly Pest Control Solutions

At Dead Easy Pest Control we are passionate about helping to save Cape Town’s diverse wildlife. With greater economic opportunities in cities, rapid urbanisation is a reality. The challenges of managing waste and the animals it attracts are rapidly mounting. Using poisons is quick but dirty from a wildlife perspective: the ultimate price will be paid by those animals at the top of the food chain, such as Genets, Cape Eagle Owls, Water Mongooses, and rarer ones such as Caracals, Otters, and Honey Badgers. The poisons can also make their way into the city’s streams, wetlands and estuaries eventually ending in our oceans. Read more on our wildlife under threat.

Before treatment of any kind, we do a thorough investigation. We look into how long the problem has been in existence, the environment in which the pests are being treated, where the pests are entering from, their main sites and of course prevention of any further infestations.

We provide cost-effective services to residential, commercial and industrial sectors throughout  Cape Town to solve common pest problems as safe and fast as possible.

Whenever you need rats, mice, cockroaches, ants or any other pests controlled and eradicated, always think about how the service or the product is going to affect your family, pets and the environment of Cape Town. Dead Easy Pest control is an environmentally conscious pest control company, we feel we have a responsibility to care for the earth and the inhabitants of Cape Town. We are constantly on the lookout for safer, low environmental impact pest solutions and make use of Green Label pesticides wherever possible which are either insect-specific baits or odourless, low toxicity sprays.

Secondary poisoning has resulted in a dramatic decrease in the owl population all over the world including in Cape Town. We have to stop poisoning owls. Fewer owls mean more rats.

What Makes Us Different

With a history of more than 28 years, Dead Easy Pest Control has dedicated itself to providing eco-friendly solutions for pest control. Our primary aim is to alleviate the stress and worries caused by various pest infestations, while ensuring the safety of your pets, children, and the wildlife in Cape Town. Our rodent control service is designed to be swift, straightforward, and highly efficient.


To achieve our goal, we employ various methods, some that are free from harmful poisons. Instead, where possible, we utilize humane traps for rats and mice, including electronic rat traps and live catch and release mouse traps. When it comes to rat control in Cape Town, we rely on multi-feed formulations, as they are not only more effective but also environmentally safer, particularly for our precious owls.
