Subterranean Termites are highly social insects that live and work in colonies. It has a highly organized system of dividing functions and tasks within the colony which is refer to its castes. The basic castes in a colony are queens, kings, alates, soldiers and workers.
Effective subterranean termite control relies on knowledge of their foraging and nesting habits.Common Habitat

Our buildings are ideal for cockroaches because they provide food, water, warmth and shelter. Cockroaches can breed rapidly and they are highly resilient. Controlling them is vital at the earliest phase as they breed and infest very fast.

Our buildings are ideal for rats/rodents because they provide food, water, warmth and shelter. For these reasons you may notice more rats/rodents inside buildings in the cooler months. home has been invaded by rodents best is to tend to it urgently. Areas infested by rats can be in high risks especially if you have children or pets. Any delay in controlling them can cause severe damage to your property and put a big hole in your wallet.

The mosquitoes are a family of small, midge-like flies: the Culicidae. Although a few species are harmless or even useful to humanity, most are a nuisance because they consume blood from living vertebrates, including humans. The females of many species of mosquitoes are blood eating pests. In feeding on blood, some of them transmit extremely harmful human and diseases, such as malaria, yellow fever and filariasis.Harmful Cause
The Mosquito carries many potentially dangerous diseases and as the move from one person, or animal, to another, they infect the new host with these diseases. The Mosquito with the most infamous reputation is that of the Anopheles genus. In Africa alone this tiny insect kills one child under the age of five every thirty seconds.What We Recommend
Kill the mosquito by grabbing it out of the air. Unless you practice this a great deal, you will find it hard to accomplish and the air of your moving hand gives the mosquito plenty of warning, and can even blow it out of your grasp. Mosquitoes are attracted to warm bodies, so staying cool is an effective way to avoid bites. They also appear to like black, blue and red the most. In addition, don't wear scent when outdoors during mosquito season. Mosquitoes are attracted to sweat, but the act of sweating can mask more effective attractors of mosquitoes, such as perfumes.
Flies are the best known of the house-infesting flies (photo at the top of the page). Flies generally are gray, with the thorax marked with broad dark stripes. There is often some yellow coloring along the sides that differentiates them from face flies.Harmful Cause
These flies cause annoyance and discomfort, and can also be harmful to human and animal health. Their presence alone is often annoying to people, but the true effects they have on humanity go largely unseen. Some flies carry very deadly diseases and infest grain and meat in large numbers.What We Recommend
Practices that remove breeding areas are fundamental to the control of filth-breeding flies, such as house flies and blow flies. Remove or cover garbage regularly and clean spilled animal feed and manure. Proper management of a compost pile is important. Removal of other breeding areas, such as overripe fruit (fruit flies) or the gelatinous material down the drain (drain flies) is also fundamental to their control.
