General Pest Control Services
A) Cockroaches Control. The Cockroach is probably one of the most infamous and hated of all insects. It is associated with filth and unhygienic conditions. The cockroach descends from an ancient lineage of insects which have inhabited our planet for around 100 times longer than humans. About 4000 species are known today; only about 12 – 14 are commonly associated with humans. ControlLiquid chemicals can be used to treat cracks and crevices around sinks, in the back of cupboards and even small gaps of kitchen equipments.Powder chemicals may be applied in electrical installations, in refrigerator motor compartments and in cavities behind panels.Parathyroid chemicals may be used to flush the cockroaches out and determine the exact locations of harborages areas. Cockroach control requires: An inspection at each visit Right preparation for the harborages Insecticide should get to the insects. Recognize the possibility of re-infestation from adjacent premises. B) Rodent CONTROL. Rats and mice often enter homes, farm buildings and warehouses in search for food and shelter. The most common rodent pests are the commensal rats and mice. These are Old World rodents that have adapted to live with man. ControlAn inspection of an infestation is essential for proper planning of control work. Identify infestation i.e. droppings, smears, urine pillars, footprints and tail swipes. Look for rat runs outside the building along walls in vegetation and in undisturbed places. Check for rat holes and nests and identify points of entry. Rats are best controlled by using baits which should be placed in all places where the live, roam and seek for food. The number of baits will depend on the size of the infestation. Check permanent baits every visit. If signs of rat feeding are found, firstly replenish the bait and survey the premises again to check if rats are present. Rat traps can be used in food processing areas.Located rat burrows, nests and runways can be treated with powder bait. This powder sticks to the feet and fur of the rats. When the rats groom themselves, they lick off and ingest the powder, thus leading to their death. For the control of common rats in sewers, hang throw packs above the sewage water line. Since the Norway rats nest on the lower levels, baits should be placed in down places, covered or placed in sheltered spots. Since the movement of the Roof rats is less predictable more bait should be placed in the higher parts of the building and near the ground. Good inspection will lead to where the harborage is located. Due to the sporadic feeding habit and the limited range of activities of the House mouse means that many more baits stations have to be laid. The main places should areas haunted by mice; in food stores, attics and other related areas. C) ANTS CONTROL. Ants are among the most amazing and fascinating creatures in the world. They all live in large groups of mostly sterile sisters who work to raise the offspring of their mother, the Queen. There can be 3 or 4 different sizes of workers as well as large soldiers, males and Giant Queens. Control Effective control of ants depends on locating the full extent of the infestation. Track the trails to the source, perhaps through water pipes or gaps between floor and the door to the outside. Spray the formulations into the favorite nesting places near radiators, ovens, in warm kitchens, laundries, etc… D) Flies CONTROL. All insects are integral part of our ecosystems. As part of food chains, insects provide dinner for countless other animals. For instance, just one crow can eat as many as 16 bushels of insects in one year. So, all insects are beneficial and necessary. It’s just that with some insects –like Flies- it’s harder to remember that they are a necessary part of the world around us. ControlTreat garbage bins inside and outside to ensure the adult flies land on the sprayed surfaces. On areas where spray is not possible, the paint-on method should be applied. Paint in small spots where flies hover, and in selective areas such as window and door frames, etc… Paint strips of cardboard or light board and hang from the ceiling if slight discoloration of the wall surfaces is unacceptable. Apply scatter bait around garbage bins and any ground surface frequented by flies, floors, pathways, window sills. A fly box may be installed where enormous numbers of flies are present. Hang the box on a wall or fence about 1.5 meters above the ground. Place a bowl with fish and water inside the box (fish is an attractant) then put chemical powder on top of the fish. Spray liquid chemical on the inside walls of the box (optional). Check the box regularly, remove all dead flies, and make sure fish in the bowl are always soaked with water and still attractive for flies. E) Mosquitoes CONTROL. The mosquito is a common flying insect that is found around the world. There are about 2,800 different species of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes can fly about 1 to 1.5 miles per hour (1.6 to 2.4km/hour). The mosquito is often a carrier of diseases, such as malaria, dengue fever, encephalitis, yellow fever, West Nile virus, dog heartworm, and many others. The females, who drink blood, can carry disease from one animal or human to another as they feed. Control With the use of thermal fogging machine mix Chemical with diesel oil at the rate of 1:34 to cover liters per hectare for the control of adult mosquitoes. Fogging should be carried out after dusk when peak outdoors activities are at the maximum. Larviciding: Apply insecticide chemical to control larvae. Diesel oil may be used as a carrier. The insecticide (if applicable) can also be diluted with water and apply it with hand sprayer. The limitations of larviciding are usually an operational one, the problems of identifying breeding places or the difficulty of reaching them. Indoor space treatment: Mosquitoes can be controlled by space treatment with aerosol formulation or Insecticide chemical mixed with diesel, with the same ratio as above, applied by small ULV machine or mist blower. F) BED BUGS CONTROL. Bed Bugs at one time were not as severe as a pest as in the past, due to insecticides and increased sanitation. However, due to the increased use of baits rather than insecticide sprays for ant and cockroach control in the past decade, bed bug infestations have increased. Currently this insect can be a pest whenever sanitary conditions are poor, or if there are birds or mammals nesting on or near a house. There are several species of bed bugs, all pf which are pests of humans and domestic animals. The common bed bug prefers a human host.Related species, such as the bat bug and bird bug, prefer to feed on bats, birds, and other wild hosts, but will also feed on humans if the opportunity arises or the preferred host dies or leaves the roost. Control Spray all cracks and crevices at infested and adjacent areas; beds, chairs, loose wallpaper, picture frames and furniture. Mattresses, bed sheets and blankets should be disposed or washed with hot water.
