Termites have been around since the time of dinosaurs for over 120 million years. They are social insects and live in colonies which are usually located in the ground or in wood. Most termites feed on cellulose from wood and wood by-products such as paper. They are worldwide in distribution with about 3,000 species. Sometimes termites are known as "white ants," however they are not closely related to the ants. Termites mostly feed on wood pulp, soil, or animal dung, crops, trees, timber, and furniture, books causing potential damage in subtropical or tropical region. In a larger nest, a queen and king may live for 15 years, with the queen laying up to one egg every 15 seconds for most of her life.
Types Of Termites:
We combine a variety of control techniques into a single, comprehensive, and effective treatment program. It safeguards your home from termites by focusing on both the soil and the structure. TERMICURE is done with using water soluble or oil soluble world class termicides on the affected area for pre & post anti- termite treatment. The treatment consists of a combination of drilling, trenching, spraying techniques to get most desired results around the home, and building. We ensure future prevention also by keep a track on it. However, if termites reappear during warranty period 1-2 years, we provide service at no extra cost to protect your home or work place.
Cockroaches belong to Kingdom Animalia, Phylum Arthropoda, Class Insecta and Order Blattaria. Some species invade human dwellings and are considered pests. Cockroaches have flat, oval-shaped bodies. The bodies of cockroaches are oily to touch and may be cool or warm, depending on the temperature of their environment. Male cockroaches are typically smaller than females. Female specimens often tend to be larger and, in some species, the females lack wings where as the males possess them. Cockroaches can be carriers of various diseases such as typhoid, hepatitius, dysentary, and other disease because they are commonly found near waste deposits or in the kitchen, where food is present. Restaurants may also experience cockroach infestations. Most commonly found species are german, american and brown banned cockroach. Cockroaches have been reported to spread at least 33 kinds of bacteria, six kinds of parasitic worms, and at least seven other kinds of human pathogens.
Cockroaches need four things to survive and thrive: Like all living organisms this cockroach needs to eat, to have sufficient moisture, and to have a place to hide when it is not actively foraging for that food and water. Our Pest control Team knows about cockroach handling. Baits and other techniques are used to resolve the infestation. Most effective treatment is gel treatment used to control these harmful pests.
Mosquitoes belong to the group Diptera. They have a single pair of wings, typically have long, thin legs and a head featuring a prominent proboscis. Mosquito bodies and wings most often are covered in tiny scales. Adult mosquitoes may range from 3 to 9 mm. Mosquito control is a vital public health practice throughout the world. Disease organisms transmitted by mosquitoes may cause dengue fever, yellow fever, japanese encephalitis, chikungunya, malaria and filariasis. Depending on the situation, source reduction, biocontrol, larviciding or adulticiding may be used to manage mosquito populations. These techniques are accomplished using habitat modification, pesticide, biological-control agents, and trapping. There is approximately 4.75 lakh death across the world due to mosquito bite per year. People experience reactions to bites, ranging from mild irritation to intense inflammation and swelling.
The mosquito treatment plan begins with inspection of potential Mosquito development site such as stagnant water, cooler, clogged rain gutters, water, tree holes or debris that hold water at your Home and identifying the kind of mosquitoes causing problems. Our inspection team Focus on 100 feet radius from the bite site and will prepare a mosquito treatment plan by putting stress on source reduction and necessary chemical product use. Some of the source reduction recommendations might include:
Flies feed on waste. They collect pathogens on their legs and mouths. These pathogens are then transferred to food on tables or counters when a fly lands again. They are capable of transmitting disease when they vomit, groom themselves or just walk on
surfaces. More than 100 pathogens are associated with the house fly, Sand Fly, Dragon Fly, including Salmonella, Staphylococcus, coli and Shigella. These pathogens can cause disease in humans and animals, including typhoid
fever, cholera, bacillary dysentery and hepatitis. Sanitation is critical in controlling these pests, but accurate identification is essential for successful fly control.
Millions of microorganisms may flourish in a single fly’s gut, while a half-billion more swarm over its body and legs. Flies spread diseases readily because they move quickly from rotting, disease-laden garbage to exposed human foods and utensils. Because they only have two wings, flies land often and therefore can deposit thousands of bacteria each time they land.
House flies can be controlled through vigilant sanitation. Removing trash regularly and use well sealed garbage receptacles. Cleaning of pet waste immediately. Use fine mesh screens on doors and windows to prevent fly entry. For best results, IPC technician will take following steps keep these flies under control:
Bed Bugs are found almost everywhere. In India, bed bugs are on rise. Bed Bugs are insects of cimcide family. They are small brown colored parasite that feasts on blood of human or mammals. Bed bugs are flat, reddish-brown, oval insects up to 4 to 5 mm long or the size of an apple seed. They prefer to be more active at night when the host is asleep. Bed bugs are found in cracks and crevices, including mattress, sheets, furniture, behind baseboards, Hotel rooms etc. Bed bug infestation can be identified by seeing the bugs, skin casting, defecation leaving black to brown stains or biting signs causes red welts on skin even after 10-14 days of bite.
Our IPC technicians will target these bugs by identifying their hideouts such as bedding, crack & cervices, wall voids & use insecticide formulation, including liquids, dusts and aerosols. We also do organic treatment by applying cedar oil. For effective results and complete treatment of bugs generally takes two to three visits after curative treatment.
There are more than 10,000 ant species that occur worldwide however only about 25 species commonly infest homes. Ants eat all kind of food, but are especially attracted to sweets. Ants can live from several weeks to several years. Depending on the species,
they can range in size from (2 to 25 mm). While most of the ants are considered harmless, but few of them - such as fire ants, which sting and carpenter ants, which damage wood - can become more than a nuisance and pose
threats to your family's health and property.
Ants have a narrow "waist" between the abdomen and thorax and they have a broad waist. Ants also have large heads, elbowed antennae, and powerful jaws. Ants are social insects, which mean they typically live in large groups or colonies. Depending on the species, ant colonies can consist of millions of ants. Their structured nest communities may be located underground, in ground-level mounds, or in trees. There are three kinds of ants in a colony: The queen (or queens), the female workers, and males. Ant communities are headed by a queen whose function in life is to lay thousands of eggs that will ensure the survival of the colony. Depending on the species, a colony may have one queen or many queens. Workers (the ants typically seen by humans) are wingless females that never reproduce, but instead forage for food, care for the queen's offspring, work on the nest, protect the community, and perform many other duties. Male ants often have only one role—mating with the queen soon after which they may die.
After Identifying the ant species, we start the treatment process which includes: wiping them with soapy water or spray with window cleaner. Locate entry points & fill those with petroleum jelly. Put out bait stations or apply gel bait at entry points. Baits take time to work, so we continue to clean up trails.
