Termite Control in Singapore
Also known as “white ants”, the three most common groups of termites in Singapore are:
- Subterranean Termite (Coptotermes spp.)
- Drywood Termite (Cryptotermes spp.)
- Dampwood Termite (Neotermes spp.)
Of these, the Subterranean Termite causes approximately 90% of Termite-related damage in Singapore, making them the most worrisome. Termites do not feed on wood, but on the cellulose found in wood. This creates galleries in the wood, which weakens the timber and causes unsightly structural damage.
How do you know you have a termite infestation?
You will find:
Subterranean Termites – Mud shelter tubes, that when broken will reveal active termites
Drywood Termites – Small piles of faecal pellets pushed out of the holes of infested wood. These pellets are small, hard, dry, and uniform in shape
Dampwood Termites – Small piles of faecal pellets but they are soft, damp, and uniform in shape
What can you do to prevent a termite infestation?
Termite control can be tricky, partly because of the humid weather in Singapore. A general guideline to follow would be to avoid stockpiling old newspapers and other wood-based materials in the store room that is damp and with no air circulation.
In the case of Drywood Termites, replace damaged wood as soon as possible, to prevent cross infestation. For a long-term peace of mind, seek the best termite control in Singapore. Aardwolf Pestkare is the trusted pest control company in Singapore.

How to get rid of termites
Getting rid of termites can be quite difficult. Spraying a can of aerosol insecticide will only kill the soldier and worker termites scavenging outside their nest. As a mature termite nest has an average of 1 million inhabitants, you are unlikely to eliminate the rest of the colony. You may instead force them to reappear in another place where you cannot detect their presence and the damage will continue undisturbed, until it is too late!
Call Aardwolf Pestkare to scan your property. A thorough scan will normally detect a termite infestation and then a localized “spot-treatment” can be carried out.
Install baiting stations to eliminate termites away from buildings and the infestation treated outdoors. Especially in Singapore, for long-term protection, you should termite-proof your property by creating a termiticide barrier around the building structure so that the termites will be prevented from invading. Prevention is still the best cure against termites.
