GENERAL PEST CONTROL

John Piper International has a comprehensiveGeneral Pest Control package to eliminate common pests from your household, factory or office premises. Some of the common pests found in and around your premises are as follows;

 

Rats/mice
Rats and Mice (Rodents) cause severe damage to office environment resulting electrical failures, communication and computer breakdowns, structural damage and fires etc. Also they cause a serious health threat to human life, being vectors of deadly diseases such as Leptospirosis. These pests use to invade from neighborhood and breed within the premises in absence of effective pest control programme.Rodent populations grow quickly and steadily, therefore control is best started prior to infestations. In order to protect your home, garden and health from existing rodent infestations, professional customized solutions are necessary.

 

Cockroaches
Cockroaches are commonly found in buildings and homes because they prefer warm environments close to food and water. Unfortunately, cockroaches can cause allergies and trigger asthma attacks, especially in children. Cockroaches can enter your home in many different ways, from the outside through cracks and crevices, vents, sewer and drain pipes.They aretypically nocturnalinsects. With plenty of food, warmth, water and nesting sites, they can remain active all year round.The few cockroaches you see by day could mean they were likely forced out by overcrowding; a possible sign of severe infestation.Cockroaches are better at hiding than you are at finding them, and their eggs are naturally protected from many over-the-counter insecticides. Without special equipment, materials and know-how, cockroach control can be a losing battle.

 

Ants

Ants as domestic and industrial pest cause nuisance, painful bites, contamination of food etc and they are considered as a threat to public health . Ants are social insect and live in colonies.Colonies can number up to 300,000 to 500,000, and whole colonies can uproot and relocate quickly when threatened.Ants can enter through even the tiniest cracks, seeking water and sweet or greasy food substances in the kitchen pantry or storeroom areas.They can nest about anywhere in and around your house; in lawns, walls, bases, even under foundations.Routing residual spray will keep ants away. However, in case of severe infestation, additional baiting will be carried out.

 

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are serious public health threat specially as vectors of deadly diseases such as Dengue , Malaria and filarial etc. Mosquito breeding takes place in accumulated water. These micro water pools exist in garden shrubs  and as well as in polluted environment  artificially  or unintentionally created by humans. These places should be eliminated or treated very frequently with a mosquito larvicide.

Mosquito breeding is fast and very frequent treatment or persistent larvicides are necessary to control mosquito larvae. Adult mosquitoes also simultaneously controlled with ‘surface residual spraying’ and ‘space treatment’ such as Thermal  and ULV fogging using approved ‘mosquito adulticide’

Houseflies

Houseflies spread foodborne diseases and cause serious health risk despite their disgusting presence in human habitats. They breed on decaying organic matter especially in garbage bins and pits etc. Prevention needs proper garbage disposal and management with good housekeeping practices while professional pest controllers should be employed for chemical control  of them. Application of larvicideon  breeding grounds and adult fly control with suitable residual insecticides are recommended.
