Crawling Insects

COCKROACHES

Cockroach they can be found in damp areas such as basements,crawl spaces, and kitchens, indoors and outside. Spray outside around doors, windows, pipe openings, and dryer vents.

Reasons to control

Control Tips

Disease transmission.

Food poisoning, Dysentery.

Cockroaches produce repulsion odour which may be allergic to many people.

Good house-keeping.

Eliminate food, water and shelter source to cockroaches.

Close check of incoming groceries, cartons, appliances, furniture, clothing etc.

Close all hiding places such as cracks and crevices around kitchen cabinet, bathroom fixings etc.

ANTS

Ants are social insects that live in colonies and are some of the most
successful insects. Ants live practically everywhere but are most
abundant in warm climates.

The body structure of an ant is typical of almost all insects: six-legged, unlike most other insects, ants have a waist, making it easier to identify.
Insects with external skeletons have great strength for their size. Have you ever seen an ant dragging another insect many times its weight? It is the ant's exoskeleton and muscle arrangement that gives it its strength.


Some ant species nest in the ground, oftentimes under concrete or slabs. Some species are found in wood, such as fence posts, dead logs, hollow trees, or within buildings. Ants cannot eat wood as do termites because they can't digest cellulose. Ants cannot eat wood as do termites because they can't digest cellulose. Unless you can treat the nest directly, spraying is not an effective solution for small ants.

Reasons to control

Control Tips

Poisonous stings.

Food poisoning, Dysentery.

Skin allergy.

Install door sweeps at the base of all exterior doors.

Seal utility openings where pipes and wires enter foundation and sidings.

Close cracks around windows, doors etc.
Apply an exterior barrier treatment to buildings.

BED BUGS

This insect has a famous history as a bloodsucker and is named due to its tendency to feed on a bed’s occupants at night. The bed bug primarily attacks humans but can feed on any warm blooded animal such as birds, mice, and pets. The saliva of the bed bug may cause a swelling on most people when they are bitten but they do not leave a wound. Swelling may include redness in some sensitive people.

These include between mattresses, seams in bed linens, upholstery, behind wood trim, inside electrical boxes, in floors, behind wallpaper, and in any other area near a blood meal that will hide a very thin insect.

Reasons to control

Control Tips

Allergic reaction on the skin and can cause sleepless nights followed by lethargy and lack of concentration.

Anaemia can result when subject to massive attack night after night.

All cracks and crevices, picture frame, wallpaper bedsteads etc should be treated with insecticides.

FLEAS

The need for flea control in most homes has been drastically reduced, as a result of new methods of treating pests with a flea problem. If you are having a problem call a professional pest control service.

Reasons to control

Disease transmission.
Harmful for pets.

SILVERFISH

Silverfish is about 1/2 inch long, with a uniform silvery color over the upper surface. Their bodies are long and slender, flattened. The bodies are broad at the front, and gradually tapering toward the rear. Pests that can feed on wallpaper pastes, natural textiles, books, and papers. They are fast-moving and can travel throughout buildings. Once silverfish find a good source of food, however, they stay close to it.

Silverfish are found in basements,kitchens, sinks, bathtubs, in bookcases, on closet shelves, behind baseboards, wallpaper, window or door frames, wall voids, and sub-floor areas. It can be a problem year round. Silverfish can damage book bindings, wallpaper, paper goods and dry foods. They may eat holes, irregular shaped in the wallpaper to get to the paste. Silverfish may bite very small holes in various fabrics, including cotton, linen, and silk, even though they cannot digest either linen or cotton.

Reasons to control

Damage paper, books and fabric

Flying Insects

HOUSEFLIES

The common house fly, is a pest all over the world. The adult has the fourth wing vein sharply angled and four length- wise dark stripes on the top of the thorax. Its face has two velvety trips which are silver above and gold below.
House fly eggs are laid in almost any warm moist material which will furnish suitable food for the growing larvae. Animal manure, human excrement, garbage, decaying vegetable material and ground contaminated with such organic mater are suitable materials.

Reasons to control Control Tips

Nuisance to people and livestock.
Food Poisoning.
Typhoid.
Diarrhea, Tuberculosis.
Cholera.

Do not leave food open.
Use strip curtains at doorways.

Although they are attracted to a wide variety of food materials, house flies have mouthparts which enable them to ingest only liquid materials. This liquefied food is then drawn up by the mouthparts and passed onto the digestive tract. During daylight hours house flies will rest on floors, walls and ceilings indoors. Outdoors they will rest on plants, on the ground, on fence wires, garbage cans and other similar surfaces. At night they will rest principally on ceilings, electric wires and dangling light cords indoors.

MOSQUITOES

A little bloodsucker also carries Malaria, encephalitis, yellow fever, dengue. A mosquito deposits its eggs in some standing water. The eggs turn into larvae, which eat by filtering water. In warm weather, mosquitoes can produce a new generation in just seven days, although two weeks is a more common span.


Reasons to control Control Tips
Malaria.

Dongue fever

Yellow fever.

Do not let stagnant water collect in pools & fountains.

Control water leaks.

Cover your septic tanks and do not let it leak.

Nothing about the itching you feel as your body tries to decompose and eliminate chemicals the mosquito injected during the bite. Not a word about the grave diseases you could catch from mosquito:- West Nile, encephalitis, yellow fever, dengue, malaria etc.

Rodent Control


Have you heard someone say, “don’t worry, it’s just a harmless little mouse�? During an AIB inspection – one harmless little mouse can cause the shutdown of an entire food processing facility? One sighting can not only hurt your image, but it can also damage your reputation. Your company image may be compromised, not to mention the damage that even the smallest of rodents can inflict. Such as, damage to product, to equipment and even the facility.


Rodents can damage and/or taint you're:

  • Image

  • Product

  • Structure

  • Operating Systems and

  • Equipment

  • Interior aesthetics

Diseases transmitted from rodents to humans:

Reasons to control Control Tips
Pathogen transfer.

Plague.

Rat bite fever.

Food Poisoning.

Leptospirosis.

Structural damage to buildings

Fill all holes in exterior walls.

Store all goods away from the wall and keep the area tidy.

Use traps and baits to catch rats.

We are using Glue traps as a rodenticides for rodent control. This tray design and glue surface catches mice and holds them securely & also can be used around food, water, children and pets. They are also disposable.

Termite Control

Termites can collapse a building entirely, meaning possible financial ruin for a homeowner. The hard, saw-toothed jaws of termites work like shears and are able to bite off extremely small fragments of wood, one piece at a time.

When termites infest buildings, they damage lumber, wood panels, flooring, sheetrock, wallpaper, plastics, paper products, and fabric made of plant fibers. The most serious damage is the loss of structural strength. Other costly losses include attacks on flooring, carpeting, art work, books, clothing, furniture, and valuable papers. Recognizing termites is tricky, since they are often difficult to distinguish from flying ants. Termites swarm in the spring and fall when a group of adult males and females leave their nest to establish a new colony.

Termite damage can be located by probing wood with a screwdriver, ice pick, or knife. Start inspection in the basement and use a bright flashlight. Look for telltale “mud tubes� or shelter tubes about the diameter of a pencil that are solid evidence of termite activity. Worker termites are blind and sensitive to heat, cold, and dry air, which is why they build mud tubes. Wood damaged by termites always has remains of mud tubes attached to wood tunnels in an irregular pattern. The tunnels may contain broken mud particles with fecal materials.

Two types of Treatments:
Pre-Construction treatment –
Vertical & Horizontal chemical barrier is created during different stages of construction of the building.

Post Construction treatment - The wooden structure of the building and the soil around the basement are treated with Termiticide to arrest Termite activity and to protect from further infestation.

Pre-Construction jobs, also known as a Pre-Treat or Soil Poisoning is done in the beginning stages of construction. This type of service is required by the State and Termitech adheres to the very strict codes imposed, which ensure that your home or building will be thoroughly treated against termites according to the state regulations. Our company is proud to done all of the Pre-Treat works & the largest construction projects in Kuwait. Pre-Treat work includes soil poisoning prior to the pouring of the slab foundation. Depending upon the type of construction, crawl spaces are treated before floors are put in, and garages, porches and patios are also treated every ten feet with the required amount of termiticide. Any utilities that emerge are also treated during the initial stages of construction, and a final application is made around the outside perimeter after final grading is completed.

Post-Construction treatment is the area that most homeowners are concerned with. When the termites start to swarm it becomes obvious that you have a colony and a problem! But termites are tricky. They almost always stay hidden and prefer to hollow out the wood. Each year, termites do more damage to homes than fire! MCMC-(Termi-Tech) has SuperTech Associates that specialize in taking the termites out of your home or building. We handle all the necessary drilling and trenching as required by state law and thoroughly apply the necessary amount of termiticide to rid you of your termite problem. Trenches are recovered and all drill holes are patched after treatment.


The insecticide which we using for Termite Control is PERMITE 25 EC, which is authorized by ministry health laws and regulations.
And we give a 5 year warranty for our termite control operations.
