The Common Pests


Among the most ancient of all insects, cockroaches and all their associated problems have always pestered mankind.

They are quite indiscriminate in their habits – feeding on garbage and sewage and then crawling over food meant for human consumption.

You can help reduce the presence of cockroaches by keeping areas thoroughly clean so that food particles and rubbish do not encourage them.  Entry from outside the premises can be limited by checking the seals on doors and windows, fitting mesh on drains and checking there are no gaps around service pipe entry points.


Rats and mice have been a persistent problem to man ever since, as a prehistoric nomad, he learned to store seeds and other foods.  History records the vast damage and suffering caused by these pests over many thousands of years.  The most devastating of these is no doubt the spread of Bubonic Plague in

You can help reduce the presence of rodents by eliminating rat harborage locations, food and water sources.  Garbage heaps, old machinery, timber piles, weed growth and general litter should be removed. Garbage must be disposed of as quickly as possible.  Entry from outside can be avoided by sealing entry points around doors, windows, drains, pipes and vents.


The house fly is found around human settlements throughout the UAE.  Typical breeding sites include infrequently emptied outdoor refuse containers and improperly maintained animal pens and stalls.  House flies feed on liquids which they either find in their food source or which they create by dissolving a portion of the solid food with their saliva.

You can help reduce the presence of flies by using plastic garbage bags to secure your rubbish, by keeping doors and windows closed or screened and by using aerosol insecticide to kill flies inside.


Mosquitoes are familiar pests to everyone because of their persistent buzzing and biting.  However it is only the adult female that seeks us out for a meal.  The cycle starts with mosquito eggs, larva and pupae developing in stagnant water.  There are several species of mosquitoes prevalent in the UAE.  Although one species is capable of dispersing malaria these are currently under control.  The remaining mosquitoes are nuisance biters that can cause pain and discomfort.

You can help reduce the presence of mosquitoes by ensuring water does not gather from air conditioners or faulty irrigation systems and by disposing of waste containers, types and plastic sheeting which may trap water.


Pest free use of pesticides and the applicable safety procedures conform to UAE Government and Health Department regulations. All Pest free technicians have completed in house training in the use of pesticides and are fully licensed with relevant authorities.

Pest free limits the spraying of chemicals indoors and will not spray in food preparation or storage areas.  Alternative pest control techniques will be used in these areas to control pests.
