TERMITES

Termites are known for the massive damage they are able to inflict on wooden structures and furniture. The high humidity in Singapore provides ideal conditions for termites to flourish in. The termites’ main danger is their ability to remain hidden until the timbers are severely damaged, as the initial signs of a termite infestation can be difficult to spot by the untrained eye.

Signs of infestation

  • Visible Mud tunnels on wall
  • Discarded termite wings
  • Wood damage
  • Rattling sounds coming from the furniture / wall
  • Hollow pieces of wood
  • Termites are social insects that live in colonies with caste systems, where each have their own role and responsibilities such as reproductive, workers and soldiers.
  • Termites live in dark places and are blind, they communicate through pheromones (chemical signals) and vibrations caused by head-banging.
  • When Soldier Termites detect a threat, they clash their mandibles together to warn the colony. Therefore taping on an infested area or in quiet places you may hear them.
  • Termites build a mud trail to keep their bodies moist above ground, when out in the open they will not be able to survive.
  • Tropical countries like Singapore has one of the most destructive subterranean termite species Coptotermes gestroi in the world causing an estimated $40 billion worth of damage worldwide.
  • Repair leaking faucets, water pipes and exterior AC units, as this may create a moist environment for termites.
  • Remove dead trees, firewood and any other dead wood that can house termites.
  • During swarming season keep your home close to prevent them from entering.
  • For storage racks use metal instead of wood if they are left unchecked for a long time.
  • Monitor all exterior areas of wood, including windows, doorframes and skirting boards for any noticeable changes.

As termites very often are hidden deep in the ground or some hidden humid place, this makes find the main colony impossible. Hence we make use of their caste system and feeding habits to work against them.

Inspection

Inspection is key to detecting termites before they hit your property and furnishings. With years of experience our termite specialist are trained to pinpoint high risk areas, are trained to deploy monitoring stations and use thermal scanners to detect any termite activity before they hit.

Termite Baiting

Baiting can only be used if there are signs of termite activity. It is a slow but very effective treatment process for termites. It works as a food source for termites laced with poison, this is then consumed by the worker termites and fed to the rest of the colony. As they ingest the bait they die off over 1-2 months thus leaving the rest of the colony starving eventually leading to colony elimination.

Pre and post termite treatments

Our termiticides are handpicked over multiple trails to select only the premium range of NEA approve chemicals which is non-carcinogenic, environmentally friendly and safe. Termiticide is injected into the soil around the premise creating a barrier between the soil and the building which last for 5 years. The chemical will adheres to any termites that passes through the treated zone spreading it through the colony, resulting in colony eradication. A 5 years warranty is given along with this treatment.

WHAT SHOULD YOU DO?

It is important to seek professional advice once termite infestations are detected. They can’t be dealt with using off-the-shelf methods such as sprays and powders. As they only deal with termites on the surface and not the main colony which is key to effectively eliminating them for good.
