Vital Bugs - biological pest control
Welcome to VitalBugs
Environmentally friendly pest control.

At Vital Bugs, we are committed to providing you with information that is timely, service that is reliable and products that are innovative and environmentally friendly. We believe in ethical practices and treat our clients, partners and employees with professionalism, care and respect.

We salute the farming industry as one of the biggest employers of semi-skilled and unskilled labourers in South Africa. By providing accommodation and food to millions of workers and their families, farmers ensure the stability and food security of a region that extends well beyond the Limpopo River.

One of the many challenges facing farmers today is how to continue producing high quality crops in the face of the diminishing number of pesticides available. We donít have all the answers at Vital Bugs, however, by trying to ask the right questions, we focus on finding innovative solutions to old problems which will ultimately help our clients stay competitive in a fast-changing world. We do this by constantly staying up-to-date with the latest technological advances in the field, partnering with research institutions and NGOs to generate knowledge and share expertise.

With a wealth of experience, know-how and contacts forged across decades and continents, we bring practical advice and workable solutions to integrated pest management (IPM).

We invite you to join forces as we overcome our challenges, making a difference in the environment and lives of those around us.
