Below are the commonly asked questions about the pest removal methods we use.
- What are the methods used to terminate pest?
Mechanical and chemical pest control are the primary pest control methods we use. Depending on the level of infestation, sanitation, baiting and trapping works for most pests without resorting to chemicals. This effectively restrict rats from breeding in your Singapore home, as well as other pests. Residential pest management is important to help keep your house pest-free.
However, spraying is essential when the application of liquid treatments is required. The method used for the treatment is also determined by determining the source of the pests, where they live, where they get their food and water, and the general condition of the home. Older apartments tend to attract more pests especially if the plumbing and air conditioning have not been maintained. Multiple visits may also be required to make sure the pests do not come back.
- Are the chemicals safe for my family and pets?
Yes, the company uses chemicals that are safe for humans and non-target organisms. We also offer organic pest chemicals as an alternative and safer solution. There are different options, too, besides chemicals such as mechanical removal and sanitation to terminate pest.

- How do you treat termite infestation?
A guaranteed pest control method to remove termites is to identify the species first and locate the areas where they live. Not all termites eat wood, but most species found in or around homes are destructive when they number significantly. Controlling termite species in Singapore means the application of chemical pesticides to treat the home according to the termite species, location, and severity. Only a certified pest exterminator should perform the treatment. The timetable will depend on the extent of the damage, because there might be a need to replace damaged structure and/or furniture.
Pest control management can also recommend termite treatment in homes not yet affected by the pests, while those that have had treatments previously will need scheduled inspections to prevent another infestation.
