Pests can cause great distress for your staff. They would feel uncomfortable when coming to work, which could in turn decrease productivity if they know there are cockroaches, ants or rodents present. 

 

Offices can provide a conducive environment for pests as they have easy access to food, water and shelter for them to survive. ORIGIN can help ensure your property is protected from pests and the damage they can do.

ORIGIN TIP

Good housekeeping practices are key to maintaining a pest-free office – leftover food in the pantry is often the culprit.

WHY PEST CONTROL IS IMPORTANT FOR OFFICES?

The initial step to prevent a pest infestation in an office is to deny pests access into the property and limit potential access to food, water and shelter. The most common pests seen in an office are cockroaches, flies, rodents and ants. This is because of accessibility to food inside the pantry, storerooms and workstations, as well as the level of cleanliness and possible entry points from the external compound. 

 

If pests happen to take up space in the office, it is best to call a pest control professional who can help solve the problem and avoid future pest issues. ORIGIN will customise a pest control solution that will suit your business needs and requirements.

SIGNS THAT A PEST INFESTATION IS IN YOUR OFFICE

  • Wood shavings or sawdust can indicate wood boring insects.
  • You may see dead bugs and shed skins on the floor, window ledges, gaps etc.
  • Droppings are a sign that rodents have made an office visit.
  • Termite mud tubes are brown, sandy tubes that are often the diameter of a drinking straw. These can be found on walls, floors, on pipes and plumbing fixtures etc.
  • The actual sighting of cockroaches, ants, flies are also a dead giveaway

HOW TO PREVENT PEST INFESTATION IN THE OFFICE?

  • Try to minimise eating inside the office. If this cannot be avoided, wipe all surfaces, vacuum or sweep crumbs on the ground and throw all food waste into bins outside the office.
  • Empty bins daily. Do not leave food packaging and food waste in dustbins within the office overnight.
  • The office has to be cleaned regularly. Mop the floor daily or at least any food or drinks spills. Do not leave food residue on surfaces.
  • Fix any leaking pipes, fixtures, appliances, etc.
  • Sealing of cracks and crevices.
  • Cleaning of external drains.
  • Implement a monthly pest control programme.

COMMON OFFICE PESTS

Cockroaches in tropical climates such as Singapore are usually larger than their counterparts found around the world. They enter your office through window or door gaps and love your pantry.

 

OUR METHOD TO REMOVE

WE USE

  • Gel Baiting: Small gel dots, placed strategically and replenished regularly – are consumed by the cockroaches which return to the nest, which allows us to target the source of the infestation.
  • Residual Spraying: Non-toxic pesticide solution sprayed at targeted areas acts as a chemical barrier.

Rodents are particularly dangerous in workspaces as they have the affinity to chew on wiring, which can cause electrical fires.

 

OUR METHOD TO REMOVE

WE USE

  • activity areas – rodents are humanely disposed of thereafter. These boards only target rats, never other passing animals such as kittens.
  • T-Rex Snap Trap: Discreet black boxes, containing a spring-activated device, traps and kills rodents instantly.
  • RATSENSE: For high-population rat control and special cases, ORIGIN uses RATSENSE, a highly innovative, sensor-based monitoring system that provides analytics for effective trapping and assessment.

False ceilings and gaps in your office walls are open doors to ants. They are a terribly frustrating pest due to their different life stages and unseen colonies. Home remedies only kill the ants you see, giving the ones you don’t see, ample time to plan a counter-attack.

 

OUR METHOD TO REMOVE

WE USE

  • Gel Baiting: Spot gel treatments of a food matrix attractant combined with a non-repellent active ingredient, are placed where the ant infestation is present, including pathways, cabinets and behind equipment. Ants will then return to their nests with the bait.
  • Residual Spraying: Non-toxic pesticide solution sprayed at targeted areas acts as a chemical barrier.

Flies are a global nuisance – thriving in warmer weather and on uncovered food, commonly found in office pantries. These pathogen carriers spread contamination and can cause food poisoning, dysentery and typhoid.

 

OUR METHOD TO REMOVE

WE USE

  • Granular Baiting: carton bait boxes are placed strategically around sinks, bins and cabinets which kills the flies once the bait has been consumed.
  • Residual Spraying: Non-toxic pesticide solution sprayed at fly resting areas.
  • Insect Light Traps: Installed in special cases, which trap the flies with glue boards (instead of electrocuting them), which is hygienic and allows further identification of the species. We deploy high quality Insect Light Traps from PestWest in the UK. These units have been rigourously tested to ensure effectiveness and compliance with global safety standards.

BOOKLICE

While generally harmless, quickly multiplying booklice are usually found in warehouses and libraries and can cause significant damage to books.

 

LIZARDS

Lizards are most fond of leaving their droppings everywhere, and these droppings can cause Salmonella, a type of food poisoning. Techniques and products used to control these occasional pests are environment-dependent and will be determined by a phone or onsite consultation.
