Termite Infestation

The Termite is the single pest that causes the most damage in Singapore.

Termites feed on the cellulose found in untreated timber, which means that wooden furniture and building structures including roof rafters are most vulnerable.

There are 3 groups of Termites in Singapore: Dampwood Termites, Drywood Termites and Subterranean Termites.

It is estimated that 90% of Termite Infestation is caused by Subterranean Termites. This is what they look like and if you turn on your speakers you will hear the crackling sound caused by the Soldier Termites banging their heads against the timber to alert the foragers, which is a sure sign that the infestation is heavy:

Under a franchise arrangement with TermiCam Australia in 2002, Aardwolf Pestkare is the first company in Asia to employ Thermal Imaging to detect Termite Infestation.

A piece of equipment will remain just a tool unless it is handled by qualified professionals. Aardwolf Pestkare is proud that all its Thermographers are trained in Australia and certified by the Australian Institute for Non-Destructive Testing (AINDT).

This explains why Aardwolf Pestkare’s Termite Management Programme enjoys an estimated 98% success in detecting Termite presence and entry points accurately and promptly, so that effective treatment can be carried out before further damage is caused.

This is what the highly sophisticated TermiCam sees:

As proof of our reliability, Aardwolf Pestkare is the first pest management company in Singapore to offer financial protection against timber damage caused by Subterranean Termites.
