In our last post, we discussed a little bit on the different Pest Control treatments that Killem Pest has to offer. But what are the treatment methods used, to ensure that these pesky pests stay away from our personal spaces?
Treatment methods vary for different pests, for example, the ways used to eradicate mosquitoes are very different, when compared to those methods that help get rid of termites. Years of experience have allowed us to fine tune and provide you with the most effective service!
Mosquito Treatment is separated into 2 areas. The first targets the larvae population, and the second targets adult mosquitoes. Treatment can be carried out via:
Larviciding is when there is an application of insecticide, which is specifically targeted at the larval stage of the mosquito. A thorough inspection for any potential breeding ground will be conducted before we carry out the larviciding treatment, and this will help to control the population, thus preventing the larvae from reaching the adult stage.
Thermal Fogging is the application of insecticide through water droplets in a highly visible fog to target adult mosquitoes. It is preferable, to fog at a time when mosquitoes are most active in order to get the best results, as thermal fogging only kills adult mosquitoes which are there at that time.
Misting applies the insecticide, by covering a large surface area, using a highly efficient motor blower with strong pressure. This creates a barrier of protection, with a long residual and rapid knockdown effect. It is odourless and has low acute mammalian toxicity.

Termite baiting is a fuss free treatment, where baits are placed in strategic locations, to target the worker termites. These worker termites will then bring the bait back to their colony, where it will be shared with the rest of the colony.
Dusting treatment is the application of powder to termite trails. These powder particles will be passed on to other termites and taken back to the nest.
Normal Soil Treatment is when chemicals are applied to pre-treat the soil for the protection of buildings against subterranean termites.
Rodding is when the external perimeter of the building blocks is treated with termiticide solution. An injector is inserted into the landscape soil near the unit structure wall.
Corrective soil treatment is when a number of holes are drilled into the perimeter of the building, right through the concrete slab, if the building perimeter is cemented or tiled. Termiticide will be injected through these holes, and then sealed up with waterproofed concrete.

General Pest Treatment
For rodents, there will be an inspection within the premises for infestation, before baiting stations or traps are installed.
For other pests such as cockroaches and flies, all potential breeding and harbourage areas will be sprayed with insecticidal chemicals to the internal and external locations that are likely to be infested.
We are confident that with our extensive experience in urban pest management, we will be able to deliver the best service for any type of pest concern.
