Construction Pest Control
You can find pests in the building and construction sites. As they often go unchecked for the hygiene standards, there is a fair chance you’ll find the pest infestation in there. Moreover, there is ample space for all types of pests to hide there and emerge from the ground if they had been residing there.
1. Mosquito Control in Construction Sites
Check for mosquito breeding in the following places:
- Unused containers and building wastes in the worksite, bangsal area, and site offices
- Building materials, canvas sheets, equipment, and machinery
- Puddles on the ground
- Puddles on the concrete floors of all upper levels and basements
- Water storage drums, tanks and containers
- Bulk waste containers
- Lift wells
- Safety barriers
- Rooftops and water tanks
- Treatment plants
- Any other containers
Application of Insecticide or Anti-Mosquito Oil
Apply insecticides or anti-mosquito oils every week to all stagnant water and water-bearing containers at ground level and on upper floors. Repeat application after rain as the insecticide or oil would have been washed away.
Destruction of mosquito breeding sites:
All the sites that can be considered potential breeding sites arere removed through the inspection. It is essential to report any such site if you are aware of any at the construction area so the supervisor can manage it properly.
Fogging is not essential at construction sites. It must only be done when there is a mosquito disease outbreak.
If your building is located in a malaria-sensitive area, then the sprays on the exterior and interior of the wall are essential. Usually, it takes a tea of two people to cover a 30-meter radius in a day. If your site is more prominent, you might need to hire extra help for this purpose. You cannot ignore the upper floors from the pest infestation, so make sure to include them in the contract, and they must be checked once they are constructed.
2. Pre and Post Termite Control In Singapore
It is essential to treat the soil with termiticides before construction in Singapore so all such problems can be avoided.
It slays because of the humid conditions that the number of pest incidents is high. It costs a lot of money to treat these problems. Termicide’s dedication to provide the best possible termite solutions to builders and their customers is why we have established ourselves as market leaders in the termite industry.
Pre-construction Termite Treatment
Pre-construction Termite Treatment is done during the planning and construction of the property. This process involved treating the soil underneath the building structure.
A non-repellent liquid termicide is used to treat the soil to kill the subterranean termite by contact and ingestion. The termicide has a slow-acting substance that allow the subterranean termite to come into contact with the rest of the colony. This “Domino Effect” will lead to the elimination of the colony and protecting your property.
Pre-construction treatment is a pro-active approach to any termite infestation. The soil will be treated with termicide and will create a barrier to stop any termite intrusion.
Post-Construction Termite Treatment
Post–construction Termite Treatment happen after concrete slabs are laid on the ground. The perimeter of the property is treated to form an anti-termite zone.
- Drilling holes of 18mm diameter through the slab using heavy-duty “Rotary Hammer.
- Injecting five liters of termicide at the dilution rate into the holes
- Patching up the holes using cement with a coloured cement mix to match the general appearance of the floor-surface
Termites cannot detect the anti-termite treated zone, so once they enter, they will immediately be affected.
