Termite Control Services from Killem

Termites are found mostly in subtropical and tropical places like Singapore.

Our experience in termite pest control has made us aware that termite infestations can have grave consequences economically, as they can cause serious structural damage to buildings, crops or plantations.

Termites measure only a few millimetres in length, yet their mouths are capable of tearing pieces of wood material. As termites mostly feed on dead plant material, internally, house foundations, furniture, shelves and even books are possible feeding sites for termites.

How we can get rid of Termites for you

How to get rid of bees:


In Singapore, all construction sites have soil treatment done for the protection of buildings against subterranean termites.

During soil treatment, chemicals are applied to the soil. Treatment includes the entire ground floor slab prior to the laying of the concrete floor slab and the area under the apron before the apron is laid.


There are various ways of dealing with a subterranean termite infestation for existing buildings, depending on the severity of the termite attack:

Corrective Soil Treatment
To prevent entry of termites, holes are drilled on the perimeter along the outside of the building through the concrete slab, and chemicals are injected into the holes and sealed with cement.

Dusting Treatment
The powder is applied to termite trails so that the powder particles are passed on to other termites or taken back to the nest.

This method does not however provide long term protection of the structure and should be used together with corrective soil treatment.

Rodding Treatment
This method is used to treat the soil directly using an injector to insert the termicide solution to the soil or landscape area.

Baiting Treatment
Termite baits are placed in strategic locations so that the termite workers feed on the bait, and then take it back to their colony to share.

This is a fuss-free installation and requires no drilling or pumping of chemicals
