LIFE OF A COCKROACH

Cockroaches
Cockroaches cannot live in human habitations without the provision of food and water. Obviously good sanitation is an important factor in reducing available harbourage grounds and depriving them food & water. The American, German & Oriental cockroaches are the common species found. These hiding places can be identified in strategic locations such as:
Locations
· Cracks and crevices in cupboards, shelves and drawers, · Connecting joints and pipes from sinks, · In corners and cracks of walls, ceilings, door and window frames, · Under the lid and at the bottom of garbage containers. Not only are they a nuisance to our daily lives, these cockroaches may also pose health threats by spreading germs to us. Cockroaches also give off a very strong and oily odour which become extremely pungent when large numbers of cockroaches are present.
Scope of Work
One of the most common signs is the presence of small dark brown oval-shaped casings – Ootheca (eggs). During the routine visit, our Team will carry out insecticide residual spray at harbourage areas. Gel baits to be applied in cracks/crevices. Cockroach baits to be placed at surrounding premises. This method of treatment will not only eradicate all cockroach harbourages but will also create a coat of residue to prevent future cockroach re-infestation. We will open the manhole (if any) and apply a layer of insecticide to deter American Cockroaches from entering the premises thru the gully trap.

COMMON ANTS CONTROL

Ants
Mostly found at walls edges and cervices. They are usually attracted into homes due to foods left unsealed or food crumbs lying around the floor. Normally infestation is associated with their rampant foraging activities. Housekeeping is very important
Scope of Work
Our control programme will include direct spray with water base chemical, effective and odourless insecticide mixture. All potential breeding spots and harbourage areas especially within the immediate compound will be treated. We will also apply a gel bait at strategic areas where residual spraying is not possible.

MOSQUITOES CONTROL

Mosquito
Mosquitoes live in a variety of habitats. But they’re mainly concentrated near sources of standing water in order to reproduce because mosquito eggs need water in order to hatch. Some species lay their eggs in standing water, while others simply lay their eggs in moist soil and then hatch once the soil is flooded with water. One female mosquito can lay up to 200 eggs at a time, which can allow for an infestation to quickly get out of hand. Proper care and maintenance of the surrounding environment is important in controlling the pest population from turning into your premises.
Scope of Work
Regular servicing is highly recommended for optimal effectiveness, as there is a risk of cross- infestation of mosquitoes, being an air-borne insect. It is a form of fumigation solution to eliminate air-borne pests found within the premise or inaccessible areas such as cracks and crevices. The misting solution will penetrate with a thorough coverage due to its small particles size nature, or around 25 microns. It consists of a low toxicity level and will not pose any harmful health effects to the surrounding public. However, customers need to be fully aware that a ventilation period of 30 mins to 1 hour must be adhered for health and safety compliance purposes.

RODENTS

Rodent
Rodents have always been a major concern in the fields of agriculture and public health. They cause enormous economic losses by consuming and contaminating large quantities of food. Food that has been contaminated by rodents is unfit for human consumption and have to be discarded. Rodents also damage property by gnawing on expensive household items such as furniture, cabinets, pianos, etc. Very often, they gnaw through abated electrical wires and cause fires to entire buildings. Rodents are also responsible for transmitting human diseases such as plague, leptospirosis, trichinosis, murine typhus, etc. Also, rodents adapted themselves well to an intimate relationship with the human in their environment & are very successful in terms of their survival.
Scope of Work
During the routine inspection, our Team will place rodent baits and glue traps at strategic points within the premises. Should there be any rats caught at the trappings, we will dispose & replace a new one. We’ll conduct a follow up inspection a week later to ascertain the effectiveness of our treatment. Any poisoned rats found during the contractual period will be removed without any additional charges.

WHITE ANTS / SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE

White Ants
Subterranean termites that nest underground and forage in wood structures. Inspection and early detection is very important in the control process to reduce property damages. Termites are serious pest which attack timber buildings and can destroy homes. A survey predicts the probability of a termite infestation of a house is five times more likely than fire.
Scope of Work
Our Team will conduct a thorough inspection throughout the entire premises during every routine. Firstly, termiticidal dusting formulation is normally applied as a spot treatment to active trail and is the current control program meant for your esteem site/premises. Should any ‘live’ activity of subterranean termites be detected, will be immediately treated with termiticidal dust and a follow up service will be added a week later to ascertain the effectiveness of the treatment.
