Termites therefore , feed on wooden portions of building utility poles , fence posts, or any other wood product . They are also damage paper ,fiberboard , and various types of fabric derived from cotton and other  plants. They occasionally are found in living plants.
    The greatest economic impact is to the wood in building.
Biological and physical characteristics of the subterranean termites Colony
Termites a social insects they live in highly organized colonies. Each colony is composed of individuals that have different physical features and/or behavioural  roles . Three major types of individuals are found this caste System: workers .Soldiers and Reproductives . The species of termites can be determind  by physical characteristics of the soldier and winged reproductive.

Method of Treatment

e. Conditions  Favouring  Subterranean
  Termite Infestation
    Subterranean termites become most aboundant  in moist, warm soil containing large supply of food in the foam of wood or other  cellulose material.  Such conditions often are found beneath building is where there is inadequate site drainage or poor ventilation and where scraps of lumber ,from  boards ,grade stakes , stumps  or roots are left in the soil. They invade most buildings through wood close to or in contact with the soil.


Post Construction Termite
Pre Construction Termite Proofing Control Treatment
Treatment (New construction sites)
This treatment should be done on the construction stage of the house or building and the treatment should be carried out before laying the concrete slab to the floor or the trenches for the foundation. (Warranty upto 10 years.)
(For Existing Building)
For Infestation in the existing building the treatment could be done by drilling and injecting the termiticide to the soil along the wall joints and exterior foundation. (warrenty upto 5 years.)

Cockroach Control


Among  the oldest insects in the world. cockroaches have been  present in the tropical and subtropical regions of the earth for as many as 350 million years. As a resualt  of the ever increasing flow of goods and growing global mobility, several type of cockroaches  have spread  throughout the world, finding favorable conditions in human habitats in all climate zones.

Cockroach are not only pesky bugs; the damage their feeding causes, the filth they leave behind and the bacteria and spores they spread place them among the world's most serious hygiene pests- making on going cockroach control and absolute must .



Cockroach have broad flattened shape, six long legs and a long fair of  antennaes. Depending on  species, roches are light brown, reddish brown, dark brown or black.
Cockroaches have never  been proven vectors of disease. However  their  association with filth and with human creates a requirement for control . They carry filth on their legs and feet. They carry the organisms of intestinal disease and will deposit these with their excreta on our food.
LIFE CYCLE is an incomplete metaporphosis in that there are no larvae or pupae. The female lays  12-48 or more eggs in a capsule which she carries attached to the abdomen, until  the eggs are ready to hatch. After  hatching,  and emerging from the egg capsule the nymphs begin scavanging for food. After molting several times, the roches become adults. The life cycle maybe completed in as little 40 days


Mosquitoes have four distinct stages in their life cycle; eggs, larvae, pupae and adults. The immature stages of all mosquitoes develop only in water but the species are adapted to particular types or locations of water collection.

Disease Transmission

Dieases Mosquito Species
  1. Malaria            -   Anopheles sinensis
  2. Dengue Fever  –  Aedes Aegypti
  3. Filaries             -   Culex Fatigue
  4. Yellow Fever   -   Aedes Aegypti
  5. Encephalitis     -   Culex and Aedes
Some 30,000 species of spiders occur throughout the world. They have eight legs and two body segments. For the most part, they are considered to be beneficial because they feed primarily on insect pests and other spiders. At times they become a nuisance by finding their way into our homes. This typically occurs in the early fall when cooler temperatures force them to seek shelter. Many people become extremely upset by their mere presence of spiders and have a very low tolerance level for any sort of "creepy crawly”

Ants are social insects, which means they live in large colonies or groups. Some colonies consist of millions of ants. There are three types of ants in each species, the queen, the sterile female workers, and males. The male ants only serve one purpose, to mate with future queen ants and do not live very long. The queen grows to adulthood, mates, and then spends the rest of her life laying eggs. A colony may have only one queen, or there may be many queens depending on the species. Ants go through four stages of development: egg, larva, pupa, and adult.



Rat control work should be regarded as a continuous programmed. Satisfactory rat control is dependent on the elimination of food and shelter. The control programme should include removal of food supply elimination of shelter, poisoning, trapping and rat-proofing.
