Our Contribution to Society During the COVID-19 Pandemic
On any given day, Aardwolf Pestkare team of professionals is charged with two things – protecting our customers’ health and keeping both insects and rodents away from their properties. Now that the entire community is forced to stay in one place with the goal of preventing the spread of COVID-19 pandemic, our job remains of the utmost importance.
When it comes to pest control services, they are considered to be a part of essential services and we couldn’t agree more. With many Singaporeans spending more time at home with their loved ones, the threat of insects and rodents invading their premises would only continue to grow if there were no proper pest management plan in place.
How Pests Impact Homes During These Difficult Times
As you may already know, pests don’t really care about any of this lockdown stuff that’s been going on. They’re always on the lookout for their potential new homes that they will be able to use as shelters, as well as their new breeding grounds. In order to find food and a nice nesting place for themselves, pests first need to gain access to your home, which they can easily do by damaging certain parts of the house itself.
Pests that relied on trash from cafes, restaurants, and other local businesses that have been negatively affected by the pandemic are now giving it their all to find some food and a nice place to live. The increase of pests and the lack of pest control services could only result in one thing – a perfect storm for new infestations.
Both mice and rats only need to find a small crack to enter your house and once inside, they will do their best to take food straight from your kitchen and they will also use some of the more unoccupied areas of your house as their bedrooms and bathrooms. These animals can carry infectious diseases and the damage that they are capable of inflicting on your drywalls, electrical wires, and other things can be quite expensive to fix.
Also, both ticks and mosquitoes could wind up causing some annoyances around your home as well. Since the pandemic is keeping many people from moving too much, a lot of people are staying inside of their homes when it comes to both exercising and relaxing. Unfortunately, the presence of both ticks and mosquitoes is becoming more and more apparent with each day that goes by, which essentially means that the risk of getting a tick-borne or a mosquito bite-related disease is increasing as well.
You can expect to see pests in completely different places and it’s all because of the pandemic. Pests possess the ability to easily adapt to changes in their environment and they are already adjusting to our new normal.
The Importance of Pest Control During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Pest control plays an extremely important role in enabling essential businesses and organisations with the ability to prevent disease outbreaks, provide safe products and services, and reduce the risk of downtime. When it comes to pest infestations, they could wind up delaying the return of a building to normal use after the lockdown restrictions have finally been lifted. This is why using pest control services is such an important thing to do, especially during these difficult times. Not only can they monitor infestations but they can also deal with them in a quick and cost-efficient manner.
Professional pest control services are known for providing an integrated pest-management plan that can control pests both discreetly and efficiently to provide a safe place for staff members by protecting the building, stock, and equipment from pests. Not contacting a professional pest control company, on the other hand, could wind up resulting in severe repercussions that could affect both your health and your property. With this in mind, professional pest control services do a great job of managing infestations and dealing with pest activities in a quick manner.

- There will be no handshaking exchanges between technicians and customers
- Our customers will have the option to refuse to leave a signature during the pandemic

- Our technicians will be expected to maintain social distance until the very end of the service
COVID-19 Disinfection Services
Our exclusive NEA approved disinfection service is known for effectively eliminating viruses, bacteria, mould, and foul smells. A residual misting that is completely water-based is first applied to ensure a lasting result. One important ingredient that is worth mentioning here is called Alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride. We then emit ozone into the surrounding air to cleanse both the air and any surfaces that it comes in contact with.
We have also done tests with The Curtin University of Technology, Action Testing & Consulting Laboratory (Tucker, USA), Western Australia, and Singapore SETSCO Services (FB 20438/T/2). All of the tests have shown that our Anti-Microbial Disinfection services do a great job of eliminating some of the most common harmful micro-organisms that can be found on many surfaces around your home.
It should also be noted that our disinfectant is also known for eliminating some other viruses as well, including HIV-1, Influenza A (flu), and Avian Influenza A (H5N1 and H9N9).
- Our Anti-Microbial Disinfection can help businesses deal with the effects of COVID-19
- We can protect your business from a wide variety of viruses, bacteria, and diseases
- Our team uses targeted disinfection solutions such as wipe-down cleaning and ULV fogging
- We deliver our services in a safe, discreet, and legally compliant manner
Generally speaking, pest control promotes a healthier environment. With this in mind, having a strong relationship with our local pest control provider is always a great investment. It is also the most convenient way to get your premises both thoroughly cleaned and disinfected. The downtime can be used for the purpose of detecting infestations.
If you are not one of our current customers but have discovered a pest-related problem that should be taken care of ASAP, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’re still here and we’re still ready to provide you with the absolute best pest control service that Singapore has to offer!
