Building & Construction Sites
Building and construction sites are a major hot bed for gathering of multitudes of pests of different kinds and species. Excavating the grounds is like opening of a Pandora's box in the pest control sense. Firstly, an action like this requires first demolishing of an existing infrastructure or clearing of a natural forested terrain. Such a move is not just scraping off a layer of soil using a shovel. It's usually a deep intrusion down into the earth, talking about metres down underground which could potentially cause a heavy disturbance to its inhabitants in the surroundings. In-built natural reflexes could result in pests like snakes and rodents emerging from their hideouts in search of safety.
Mosquito Breeding Grounds
Leaving unchecked, construction sites are also major breeding grounds for mosquitoes. Mosquitoes aren't that uncommon everyday and you should be in the know how dangerous this little fly thing can potentially harm you and your loved ones.
Viral diseases like dengue fever and the more recent Zika virus are spread by infected breeds of mosquitoes. These viral diseases are fatal at times with dengue fever having a whopping 20% fatality rate if left untreated. Although Zika virus has a much lower fatality rate of about 8%, the potential non lethal afflictions it has on the infected living are no less horrifying. For pregnant women, infection with Zika virus during pregnancy could potentially cause microcephaly and other debilitating brain problems. Babies growing with microcephaly would have a marginally smaller head and undeveloped brain which will have a devastating impact on the infant's life.
Having said the above, it is important to meet the requirements set out by the authorities for a mosquito-free environment to ensure that the construction works go on smoothly without interruptions. But more importantly, a higher order perhaps, is to keep your workers or the nearby residents and public users, safe and free from this little but powerful pest.

Termite infestation is capable of casting doubts on both a building's structure trust-worthiness and its overall foundation stability. Ever more so important, on our island nation of Singapore, where the land is scarce and buildings tend to grow vertically ever higher, regulations are rightfully implemented by the authorities to have sites treated by professional pest control services, using termiticides, before any commencement of buildings began.
