Termites are known for their ability to damage wooden structures and furniture. The level of humidity in Singapore provides an ideal environment for termites to flourish in.
Termite infestation is usually not visible until the timbers are severely damaged. Although there are signs of an initial infestation, they can be difficult to spot.

Truths about termites

Termite Facts

  1. Termites are social insects that live in colonies with caste systems. Each termite has their own role and responsibility;
  2. Termites live in dark places and are blind. They communicate through pheromones (chemical signals) and vibrations caused by head-banging.
  3. When soldier termites detect a threat, they clash their mandibles together to warn the colony. Therefore, pest controllers tap on an infested area or in quiet places you may hear them.
  4. Termites build a mud trail to keep their bodies moist above ground. They will not be able to survive in the open.
  5. Singapore has one of the most destructive subterranean termite species, Coptotermes gestroi. They have caused an estimated $40 billion worth of damage worldwide.

termites preventions advice

Preventions Advice

  1. Repair leaking faucets, water pipes and exterior AC units, as this may create a moist environment for termites.
  2. Remove dead trees, firewood and any other dead wood that can house termites.
  3. During swarming season, keep your home close to prevent them from entering.
  4. For storage racks use metal instead of wood if they are left unchecked for a long time.
  5. Monitor all exterior areas of wood, including windows, doorframes and skirting boards for any noticeable changes.

Methods of Treatment

As termites are usually hidden deep under the ground or in humid places, this makes the search for the main colony nearly impossible. Hence, we make use of their caste system and feeding habits to identify their nests.

1. Inspection

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

2. 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..

3. Pre and post termite treatments

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

4. 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. Effective termite pest control measures such as termite baiting, soil and corrective treatment require professional expertise to apply and are unavailable to regular consumers. Our NEA-certified consultants are trained in the latest techniques for identification, management, and prevention of termites.
