Booklice Control in Singapore
Have you ever encountered minuscule black dots on the wall thinking they are dirt only for them to start moving? These are common types of pests called booklice (or bark lice) frequently found in homes or offices. Unlike what their name suggests, booklice do not feed on paper or books. Booklice are attracted to and thrive in environments with high moisture. They may be found in places with mildew, mould and fungi as these are their primary sources of food.
As with any pest infestations, a booklice infestation may cause distress and anguish. The professional team at Bingo Pest can eradicate booklice on your property.

Sticky eggs laid alone or in a cluster

How often should we disinfect a place?Regular cleaning helps to reduce pathogens including bacteria, viruses and fungi on commonly-shared surfaces. This helps to reduce the risk of transmission from surfaces including keyboards, door knobs and switches. Therefore, it is recommended to carry out cleaning daily to get rid of contaminants that may land on the surfaces. Besides cleaning, you may consider a professional sanitisation and disinfection misting treatment to thoroughly cleanse your property. This may be done as one-off service or regularly based on your needs.
How do i disinfect a house with COVID-19 exposure?Household bleach and alcohol (70% to 90%) can be used for surface disinfection. You should first wipe down the surfaces with water and detergent to remove any traces of dirt before carrying out the disinfection. In addition to surface disinfection, a professionally-conducted disinfection misting service can help to get rid of viruses lingering in the air. This treatment is suitable to be carried out not only for residential homes but also ideal for businesses with COVID-19 exposure.
What is the price of a professional disinfection service?The cost of disinfection services may vary depending on several factors such as the scope of work, size of your property and frequency of treatment. It may also cost more to disinfect premises with confirmed COVID-19 cases as there are more prerequisites to the service including the need to don full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to carry out the service.
