The best way to keep a construction site free of pests is to not give them a chance to infest in the first place. Here are some tips you can consider to prevent pests:
The best defence against pests is mindfulness. Remain aware of common places pests may hide on site, and check frequently. When building materials arrive from suppliers, inspect them for pests just in case
Waste from building materials, food scraps left by workers, and more types of rubbish create clutter, presenting a source of food or shelter to pests. Clear the site regularly.
Cover up wood
Exposed wood is a termite magnet, especially when the weather is humid. All wood, used or not, should be covered up every night and stored out of direct contact with the ground, so that underground pests can’t get to it.
Remove stagnant water
Water that pools in holes and becomes stagnant ends up being perfect breeding grounds for mosquitos. Drain the water and fill the holes.
Use a termite barrier
Every construction job should absolutely be protected by a termite barrier. The barrier is a wall of termite poison that prevents termites from making it far enough to get to your wood sources. Why deal with the headache when termites can simply be blocked off?
After getting your call, we’ll come to the construction site for a thorough pest inspection in Sydney. We identify areas or objects at risk of infestation and give advice on what changes to make.
Additionally, many pest problems on construction sites start because there used to be pests living on the site before the influx of people displaced them. Chances are we can find out what pests plagued the area before construction began, so that we can be prepared for them when they inevitably return after construction wraps up.
Based on what we learnt from our inspection, we make our suggestions for proper pest control procedures going forth.
We tend to suggest preventive measures such as termite barriers for every construction site, but if there is already an infestation, we can offer treatment for that as well. With 100% eco-friendly and non-toxic pest solutions, workers won’t have to cease operations even after we’re done.
Construction sites need continuous pest control help from pre-construction to all the way after work has wrapped up. Active Pest Control Management can work closely with you at various stages of the build project so that the construction process is as hassle-free as possible. Periodic inspections, refreshing of traps, barriers and treatments and communication will be the keys to having zero pests for the entirety of a project.
\Once construction finishes, we can do the final preventive pest control measures so that displaced pests won’t return in the future to cause trouble to the new property owners.
TERM-Seal physical barriers can last for a good 20 years, as long as they don't suffer additional damage beyond wear and tear due to extenuating circumstances.
Termites are unable to bite through the materials used in physical barriers. However, if the material weakens over time and tears, there may be gaps for termites to slip through.
These physical termite barriers don’t require any regular maintenance. However, if they have been damaged, they will need to be replaced.
