| Pest Control Service
for Landed Property
Looking for landed property pest control?
The best thing about owning a landed property is to have
your own house built on the land that belongs to you. There
will be no strangers staying above you except having a roof
covering your highest floor or attic. You can also make full
use of the land around you, be it creating a beautiful
garden with trees and plants, having a pond or even a
Jacuzzi or swimming pool! Wouldn’t you be proud if birds,
butterflies and dragonflies visit your garden and pond?
But what if there are uninvited guests making your compound
their home as well? Could you imagine waking up one day and
finding a beehive hanging from your favourite tree? What if
you discover termites gnawing at the tree trunk or worse
still eating away your parquet flooring, wooden furniture
and boxes storing important documents? Or have you been too
busy to notice that water is found in unused pots that have
been left lying around the garden and that water has been
accumulating in the gutters of your roof which are both
potential breeding sites for Aedes mosquitoes?
If they are any signs of infestation by garden pests,
termites, mosquitoes etc., do seek the help of the Pest
Control Companies early. Choose one that is licensed by the
National Environment Agency (NEA). They should be equipped
with the latest technology and using methodology and
products that are approved by the Government. The Pest
Control Company will inspect the areas and determine the
type of pests, source and extent of infestation. Relevant
treatment measures include elimination of pests and their
habitat, restrict the source that attract the pests and
implement preventive measures.
For example, to prevent spread of dengue fever, they will
look for the source i.e. the potential mosquitoes’ breeding
ground in and around your house e.g. the drains, gutters,
unused flowering pots and any unattended receptacles.
Treatment will be done to prevent development of eggs into
adult mosquitoes that will otherwise wreak havoc in the
neighbourhood. Fogging will also be done to destroy any
adult mosquitoes. However, if they are more dangerous garden
pests like bees and snakes, then a more targeted approach
will have to be taken, including skilfully removing the bee
hive or snake before any serious harm is caused. As for the
presence of termites, the Pest Control Company has to detect
and assess the seriousness of infestation and destroy the
termites by eliminating the termites’ colonies. Wooden items
have to be properly treated to prevent future infestation.
After getting rid of the pests, owners have to undertake
preventive measures e.g. maintaining good housekeeping and
hygiene habits. Further, you have to perform checks around
the house to ensure no unwanted water accumulation and
administer granular insecticide in vases, gutters etc.
regularly to eliminate mosquitoes’ breeding grounds. You
have to be vigilant at all times of possible building of
nests by wasps or bees. You should invite Pest Control
Companies to do fogging of your garden on a regular basis or
to monitor possible termites’ activities, if applicable.
Putting in a little effort regularly goes a long way in
giving you a comfortable and restful landed property living.
