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.
