Singapore’s Foremost Cockroach Control Experts
Get rid of these noxious pests with the help of our seasoned experts. Cockroaches are one of the most common household pests, but that doesn’t make it any less pleasant when you come across one in your home. Cockroaches are classified as mechanical vectors, carrying disease causing pathogens on their body which can be transmitted on to human food. Besides triggering asthma and causing allergic reactions in some people, they are commonly associated with food poisoning.
The most prevalent species encountered in Singapore are the American and German cockroaches and to a lesser extent the brown-banded cockroach. All three exhibit their own distinct behaviours and prefer different habitats and harbourage sites. As seasoned industry experts, we are able to identify what species you have, easily identify the nest and implement an effective pest management solution.
The first step in our control solution is to determine the level of infestation by employing monitoring traps, which is followed by a chemical treatment. Chemical control normally involves use of residual and aerosol sprays, dust or powder application and applications of baits in the form of granule or gel. In instances of a large infestation which needs to brought under immediate control, a ULV mist or fog product will be employed. The latter is normally directed towards inaccessible areas harbouring large populations such as bin chutes in HDB flats.
Simple Ways to Protect your Singapore Home from a Cockroach Infestation
General preventive measures against cockroach infestations in kitchens include keeping all food stored away in sealed containers, using garbage cans with tight lids, frequent cleaning in the kitchen, and regular vacuuming. Any water leaks, such as dripping taps, should also be repaired. It is also helpful to seal off any entry points, such as holes around baseboards, between kitchen cabinets, pipes, doors, and windows with some steel wool or copper mesh and some cement, putty or silicone caulk.
