Odour Control is an industrial-strength odour neutralizer, comprised of powerful probiotics that eliminate the bacteria that cause foul odours.
Bad odours indicate the presence of toxin-producing pathogens growing on organic material. The new generation of probiotics in Probio’s Odour Control can be used to remove odours by outcompeting pathogens for organic material and neutralising odour compounds.
Odour Control’s probiotic microorganisms eliminate the bacteria which cause bad odours – getting rid of bad smells right at their source. Applying Odour Control changes the underlying microbial ecology to one that is natural, balanced and healthy, treating the problem rather than deodorising the symptoms. Probiotics will also remain living on the surfaces where they were applied and continue doing the job of odour and pathogen control.
- Ongoing consistent applications can eliminate the source of foul odours before they occur – essential for large scale operations such:
- Industrial composting
- Hotels, restaurants, commercial spaces
- Animal husbandry operations
- Waste management, including landfills, transfer stations and leachate treatment
- Fast acting and long lasting odour neutralisation
- Prevents fly nuisance
- Reduces stress on animals in closed housing
- Cost effective concentrate
Termite Protection System
Termites will be turned away from your property every time
The NOVITHOR Pesticide Free Termite Protection System is a tested and approved termite protection system that creates an impenetrable barrier to prevent the ingress of subterranean termites.
The NOVITHOR System consists of three pesticide free elements which, in combination, ensure any construction type can be securely protected.
NOVITHOR TERMITE PROOFING RESIN
NOVITHOR TERMITE PROOF CEMENTITIOUS PARGE
NOVITHOR TERMITE PROOF FLEXI-GEL
The NOVITHOR Pesticide Free Termite Protection System can be used during the construction phase, as well as post construction. All three elements work by creating an impregnable barrier that termites cannot chew through or damage, and that is resistant to their secretions. In fact, NOVITHOR Termite Proofing Resin and NOVITHOR Termite Proof Cementitious Parge are granite-like when set.
The NOVITHOR System provides eco-friendly, cost effective and pesticide free protection from termites. Once applied, the NOVITHOR Pesticide Free Termite Protection System is not an eye sore on the completed structure; indeed the finished barrier is invisible to the naked eye.
Ensystex are able to confirm its presence through analytical methods to ensure Quality Control at installations.
Integrated pest management (IPM), also known as integrated pest control (IPC) is a broad-based approach that integrates practices for economic control of pests. IPM aims to suppress pest populations below the economic injury level (EIL). SA’s Food and Agriculture Organization defines IPM as “the careful consideration of all available pest control techniques and subsequent integration of appropriate measures that discourage the development of pest populations and keep pesticides and other interventions to levels that are economically justified and reduce or minimize risks to human health and the environment. IPM emphasizes the growth of a healthy environment with the least possible disruption to ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms.” Entomologists have urged the adoption of IPM pest control since the 1970s. IPM allows for safer pest control.[clarification needed]
The introduction and spread of invasive species can also be managed with IPM by reducing risks while maximizing benefits and reducing costs.
When you have a pest problem, especially when the problem is severe, you want the most effective pest control solution available on the market. Many people resort to sprays and residual applications, but often these types of treatments aren’t completely effective. Repeat treatments are the result, which can cause expensive bills and a pest problem that isn’t totally eliminated. When it comes to effective pest control, in some cases, a pest professional will determine that the most efficient option is fumigation. There are many benefits of fumigation– here are what we consider the top 4 advantages when a fumigation service is necessary.
- No matter what stage of life your pest problem is in, fumigation can eliminate them. Eggs, pupae and larvae as well as adults. Fumigation is the right treatment to get rid of every life stage that is present. Some non-fumigation type treatments will work best on certain life stages, while other life stages will remain unperturbed. Fumigation is appropriate when all life stages may be present like in the case of a severe infestation.
- Fumigation is a quick solution to your problem. Many pest control measures can some time to work, including baits and sprays. Fumigation is quick, often taking care of your pest problem overnight. This may be necessary for sensitive environments or commercial establishments in which there’s zero tolerance for pests.
- Fumigation has the ability to get to those ‘hard to reach’ areas where pests may be hiding. It permeates a room, even if the room is filled with your belongings. Fumigation can reach where sprays, dusts, aerosols and other typical pest control materials cannot, ensuring complete pest eradication.
- Fumigation is ideal in sensitive environments, including food processing and storage facilities. There are reduced residue problems in fumigated areas compared to typical pest control treatments.
Fumigation is a great option for pest control and when performed by a trained professional, it can be completely safe and effective. This option is an excellent choice for both residential and commercial facilities facing pest problems.

Unbeknownst to many South Africans, subterranean termites cause millions of rand in damage annually, compromising the structural integrity of homes built on earth that’s either been untreated or undergone inefficient treatment. These silent pests are able to chew their way through wooden structures and, if left to their own devices, eventually cause the collapse of eaves, beams and other supporting structures.
Prior to the laying of your foundations, the ground beneath your future home needs to be treated for subterranean termites. The soil poisoning process involves the drilling of holes – one meter apart – around the perimeter of the foundations. Termiticides are then pumped into the soil in order to saturate the ground. This will ensure that the treatment is done thoroughly, is effectively carried out and that chemicals that are non-toxic to humans and animals are used.
Proper care of your lawn and garden allows the desired plants to thrive and block out weeds, but unwanted plants are still often able to grow. Herbicides are effective at killing the weeds when the type of weed killer is carefully selected to match your needs. Selective herbicides kill only a specific type of weed or plant, while nonselective herbicides kill any plant they reach. You also have the option of using a preemergent weed killer to control weeds before they grow or a postemergent herbicide that is effective once the weeds are already growing. Contact chemicals kill the weeds when they touch them, while systematic herbicides travel through the weeds to kill them from the inside.
Physical removal of weeds requires strenuous digging and pulling by hand. Getting on hands and knees to pull the weeds puts strain on the back and legs. Some weeds have long roots that require extra digging to remove the entire weed. A chemical weed killer is easier to apply because you only need to spray it on the plant. The herbicide takes over at that point to kill the unwanted plant.weeds to kill them from the inside.
Managing cockroaches is not easy. You must first determine where the roaches are located. The more hiding places you locate and manage, the more successful your control program will be. Remember that cockroaches are tropical and most like warm hiding places with access to water. Some locations may be difficult to get to. Reduction of food and water sources and hiding places is essential. If cockroaches have access to food, baits (which are a primary control tool) have limited effect. Sprays alone will not eliminate cockroaches. An IPM approach that integrates several strategies is usually required.
If you know the species of cockroach, you will be better able to determine where the source of infestation is and where to place traps, baits, or insecticides. Note locations of suspected infestations and concentrate control and preventive measures in these areas. The keys to controlling cockroaches are sanitation and exclusion: cockroaches are likely to reinvade as long as a habitat is suitable to them (i.e., food, water, and shelter are available), so the conditions that promoted the infestation must be changed. In addition to sanitation and exclusion, baits can be effective against most species of cockroaches. Pesticide spray products are registered for use on cockroaches and may temporarily suppress populations, but they usually do not provide long-term solutions and are not generally recommended. Commercially available devices that emit ultrasound to repel cockroaches are not effective.
