    Identifying Termites

    Termites, also known as white ants in Singapore, are the most dreaded pests among property owners due to the severe damage. It’s particularly problematic since they flourish in tropical and subtropical places with high humidity and rainfall, such as Singapore, where they may easily inflict substantial damage worth thousands of dollars.

    The drywood termite and the subterranean termite are the two most frequent termite species in Singapore. Both species can feed on cellulose present in wood for up to 24 hours without taking a break, regardless of species. Subterranean termites account for around 90% of termite-related damage in Singapore, making them the most troublesome. The structural damage can go unnoticed because they feed on the cellulose present in wood rather than the wood itself.

    Below are the three termite species commonly found in Singapore:

    Subterranean Termite
    (Coptotermes spp.)

    Subterranean Termite-aardwolf pesktkare

    One of Asia’s most well-known and destructive insect pests of wood. Every year, they cost millions of dollars in damage and can badly harm a family’s most prized property in their house. Subterranean termites dwell in underground colonies and are divided into castes that execute various colony activities.

    As a result, these caste systems are divided into three groups: labourers, soldiers, and swarmers. Workers aid with foraging, child care, construction and maintenance, and even defence of the colony.

    Habitat

    • Requires moist environments
    • Nests near the soil, kitchen sink, toilet doorframe, and skirting near the window area

    Reproduction

    • Reproduce and lay eggs daily
    • Termite queen produce 5,000 to 10,000 per month

    Drywood Termite
    (Cryptotermes spp.)

    Due to their lower moisture requirements, they are the second most damaging termite pest after subterranean termites, and they dwelt totally within the wooden substance. As a result, they eat the deadwood of living trees and the wood already in use. Drywood termites, on the other hand, are much more difficult to remove because, unlike Subterranean termites, they do not respond to termite baiting. Therefore, drilling might be required in the affected areas.

    Habitat

    • Within dry, sound wood like wooden cabinets, antique wood, or doorframes

    Reproduction

    • Primary reproductive / swarmers – leave the colony to find a new colony to breed in
    • Replacement reproductive (wingless) – remains in the colony to reproduce

    Dampwood Termite
    (Neotermes spp.)

    aarwolf pestkare dampwood termite

    Dаmрwооd tеrmitеs get their name from the fact that they dwell and eat in highly wet wood, especially in the garden area, tree bushes, stumps, and fallen trees.

    These dampwood termites, unlike the subterranean termites in Singapore, do not build shelter tubes. This is because this species does not require any soil contact. Aside from that, they only consume moist wood or wood with high moisture content. As a result, their colonies are frequently found in the woods.

    Habitat

    • Woods with direct contact with soil or wooden materials
    • Rotting wood, decaying timber, damp wood

    Reproduction

    • Produce few eggs in a few year but with ideal dampwood termite condition, colonies can become large

    How to prevent termite infestation?

    Termite infestations are a common occurrence in Singapore. People have been looking for solutions to reduce the infestation in their homes due to this. You will have to spend a lot of money on untimely repairs if termite control is not done. Termites are harmful insects that need water to live. They thrive in moist soil, where they construct a succession of underground nests. They then build tunnels to transport wooden bits of your house to their colony. Here are six strategies to keep termites out of your home.

    • Inspect your home for termite infestation on a regular basis

      One of the most critical stages in preventing termites in your home is to inspect it. The inspection includes checking that any structures made of wood or other materials that attract termites are in excellent working order, as well as assessing any wood-based sections of your home. In most cases, the inspection entails looking over the entire house. Cracks or holes in window and door frames, as well as sawdust underwood structures, are signs of termite infestation in your home.

    • Check for any sources of dampness in your home

      Many termite species thrive in regions where there is a lot of dampness. A termite colony may thrive on only a few droplets of water. As a result, it is critical to ensure that your home is clear of moisture. Make sure there aren’t any damaged or leaky pipes. Inspect all water sources in the kitchen, service yard, basement, or roof space because these are some of the sites where termites may thrive.

    • Remove any dead stumps, trees, or branches that are close to your home

      Termites will establish a colony outside your home before entering it. Termites love to live in decaying stumps, trees, and branches, and they may easily establish a home there. You may reduce the possibilities of them infiltrating your home by removing anything that they can live in near your home. You should also remove any dirt or vegetation that has accumulated around the base of your home. Termites may readily tunnel through the soil to get to your home. You’re more likely to get a termite infestation if you have organic material against your property. Make sure to take preventative actions like mowing and edging.

    • Use termite resistant timber

      It is critical to select termite-resistant wood while constructing your home or other equipment. This will help keep the termites at bay. In Singapore, many kinds of termite treatments are applied to guarantee that wood is not infested.

    • Remove any and all wood-to-soil contact

      Because termites infest many sections of Singapore, residents are constantly urged to avoid putting wood in touch with soil while building their homes. This will prevent termites from entering your property since termites dig tunnels in the ground to gain access to moisture. You may also elevate decks and other wooden constructions to protect them against termites. Make sure your home is well ventilated as well. Poor ventilation creates a damp atmosphere conducive to termite survival.

    • Regularly perform repairs and maintenance

      When inspecting your home, you should take prompt action if you spot any damaged or decaying structures. If you ignore it, you might end up with a termite infestation. Ensure that any decaying pieces are removed and replaced. It’s also vital to make certain home repairs, such as re-painting your property to keep termites at bay. If you see cracks in your home’s foundation, you should seal them right away. Termites will not be able to enter your home if you do not seal them.

    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 storeroom 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 long-term peace of mind, seek the best termite control in Singapore.

      Aardwolf Pestkare - Your Best Choice For Termite Control Services in Singapore

      Getting rid of termites can be pretty tricky. 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. Instead, you may force them to reappear in another place where you cannot detect their presence, and the damage will continue undisturbed until it is too late!

      Aardwolf Pestkare offers Singapore’s best termite control services for residential, commercial and industrial properties in Singapore. You can depend on our team to eliminate the termite pest control problem.

      Termite Pest Control in Singapore requires species-specific treatment best conducted by our Aardwolf Pestkare Technicians, who will target the source of the infestation. Before we treat, our qualified Thermographers will scan your home with Thermal Imaging to confirm the entry points of the termites.

      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.

      Termite Baiting

      Subterranean Termites can be eliminated using either a bait system, dusting, or injection of liquid termiticide.
