Odours are usually derived from treatment plants that contain ammonia, volatile organic compounds and sulphur compounds. It is imperative that ventilation and containment must take place once chemical treatment or biological treatment has been applied. Odour control of wastewater plants must be carried out resulting in a more pleasing environment for workers to work in affecting the environment at large.
How we control Odour
Odour is controlled by reducing polluted air or wastewater which makes it more acceptable. Odour control is also essential for compliance.
We apply industrial-strength odour control by neutralising odours through the application of powerful probiotics that do away with bacteria that are the cause of unpleasant odours that pollute the air and wastewater.
Foul odours indicate that there is a presence of pathogens that produce toxins which grow in organic material. The Probiotics in Probio’s Odour-Controlling products is applied to eliminate the smells by overriding the pathogens in the organic material and thus neutralising the odour-producing compounds.
The application of Odour-Controlling products will change the unpleasant-smelling microbial ecology to one that is natural, balanced and healthy; and by treating the problem at the source is a far better option than simply disguising the odours.
We offer you protection both pre-construction and post-construction from damage caused by termites. Novithor Pesticide-Free Termite Protection System is a tried and tested method of keeping these destructive insects in check. The system is practically invisible to the naked eye once it dries, plus it forms an impenetrable barrier that termites cannot chew through or that their saliva cannot affect.
The Novithor Pesticide Free Termite Protection System has three components that make it a good option to use. These include:
- Novithor Termite Proofing Resin
- Novithor Termite Proof Cementitious Parge
- Novithor Termite Proof Flexi-Gel
The Novithor Pesticide Free Termite Protection System can be used throughout the construction of a structure, although it is as effective once building is complete.
The Novithor Proofing Resin and the Novithor Termite Proof Cementitious Parge form a granite-like barrier once it is set, which makes it 100% impenetrable.
Furthermore, this product is eco-friendly, cost-effective and pesticide-free, offering protection from destructive termites.
To sum up – prevention is often better than cure, therefore, it is a good idea to apply termite control right from the outset when the foundations are being dug. This pesticide-free option that is not only invisible to the naked eye, but also eco-friendly should be your obvious go-to option when it comes down to keeping nasty termites in check.
Entomologists are scientists that study the habitats and habitats of insects and are responsible for the classification and the observation of the lifecycles, physiology, behaviour, physiology, ecology and population dynamics of insects. Entomologists are now encouraging pest control experts to adopt IPM pest control measures (since the 1970s), which allows for safer pest control implementation.
IPM – otherwise known as Integrated Pest Management
- IPM is a wide approach that combines various practices for the economic control of pests
- IPM aims to control and suppress pest populations below the economic injury level
- South Africa’s Food and Agriculture define IPM as being the careful consideration of all pest control methods and the integration thereof of appropriate measures taken that will discourage infestation and development of pest populations
- IPM is also about keeping pesticides and other preventative and interventions to justifiable levels that are economically viable
- IPM reduces and minimises the risk to human, animal and environmental health
- The main idea is to ensure that as little possible disruption is caused to the environment
- IPM encourages natural pest control measures and mechanisms wherever possible
The spread and introduction of invasive insect species can be successfully managed with IPM – all this by reducing risks wherever possible and maximising benefits of pest control at affordable prices.
Many individuals don’t know or understand what HACCP stands for and what role it plays in keeping food free from hazardous substances and contamination from chemicals. HACCP is also referred to as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points which is the systematic prevention to food safety from chemical, biological and physical hazards during production processes that can affect the finished product to be unsafe to use. HACCP implements measures to reduce the risks, deeming them safe to use.
Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points is an internationally recognised method of identifying hazards and managing all safety measures that are related to risk. This is an active food safety programme which provides customers, regulatory control agencies and the public that a safety food programme for food is well maintained and managed.
HACCP manages food safety by addressing and analysing and controlling physical, biological and chemical hazards right through the production process from the raw material production, procurement and handling to the manufacturing and distribution – right through to the consumption of the product.
It is a known fact that most of the world’s manufacturing plants and vendors use the HACCP system as a basis for their food safety management controls and compliance with GFSI audits.
Perhaps the most effective method of ridding your environment of pest infestations is through fumigation. Fleas, for example, are a nightmare to get rid of once they invade your space and get into those crevices and floorboards, on pets and in bedding; fumigation is perhaps the only effective and long-lasting method that works in the long haul in getting rid of these nasty bugs.
Sprays and residual applications are often ineffective methods of ridding your space of nasty, stubborn infestations. Repeating residual treatments can prove to be expensive, plus it is not a long-term effective method of pest control.
Here is a list of the benefits of fumigation and why it is so important to fumigate when you are not getting results:
- Fumigation is a great method of getting rid of pest problems no matter what stage of the life your problem is at – eggs, pupae, larvae and adults are all effectively eliminated through fumigation
- Certain non-fumigation methods are most effective on certain life stages of pests, while others will be completely unaffected
- Fumigation is effective on all life stages of pests (this is not always the case with non-fumigation methods)
- Fumigation is a fast way to rid your environment of pests which is advantageous in certain sensitive environments where pest tolerance is zero
- Fumigation reaches the most difficult places where pests have a knack of hiding
- Fumigation permeates a room where sprays, dusting, aerosols and other methods of pest control cannot reach, ensuring a far-reaching pest eradication method
It is best to use trained pest control professionals to carry out successful fumigation pest control methods, particularly in sensitive environments.
It is important to treat your foundations beneath your building structure for Subterranean Termites before building your structure. These termites are called Subterranean Termites – this is as a result of them being found beneath the surface and not above unlike wood termites.
The process of soil poisoning takes place when holes are drilled a meter apart around the foundations where the soil is firm. Termiticides are then placed into the soil, soaking the ground that will eliminate any termite activity. Once the Termiticides have been applied, the holes are closed with cement plugs which will guarantee that the process is thorough and effective and is a harmless non-toxic substance to both animals and humans.
Many South Africans are blissfully unaware of the destructive results of Subterranean Termites that can cause millions in damages every year, undermining the foundations and structures of buildings that are built. Foundations that are left untreated or been treated inadequately are vulnerable as termites cause damage because they can chew through wood, causing the collapse of pillars, eaves and other wooden supports.
Termite infestation treatment requires the assistance of a professional pest control team where a thorough inspection of the property or a structure is undertaken. This is the best way to identify problem areas.
The botanical component of pest control is the effective control of weeds. In an attempt to prevent and stop weeds from growing – particularly those that are all-invasive and toxic – weed control plays an important role by blocking the “bad” plants and allowing the “good” ones to thrive. Weeds compete with fauna and flora; thus, the prevention of these invasive plants is important.
The correct care of your lawn, garden and farmlands will enable good plants to flourish while blocking out weeds, although unwanted species will always find a way to grow. Herbicides are one way to effectively block the growth of invasive and harmful flora – although it is imperative to match the correct herbicide with plants to ensure they don’t cause harm to the plants that need to thrive as well as preventing harm to humans and animal life.
Certain herbicides kill only specific plants or weeds while those that are non-selective kill all plants that they encounter. Preemergent weed killers will control weeds prior to them growing and flourishing and post-emergent herbicides are effective once the weeds are growing and flourishing. Chemicals that are referred to as contact chemicals will kill on contact. Systematic weed killers will travel through the weeds to kill them from the inside out.
Weed control is best carried out by the experts to avoid contamination and damage to healthy plant growth.
Cockroaches are a resilient insect with about 4 000 varieties found right across the globe and have been around for almost 320 million years. Unlike other pests, their diet is not specific which makes them voracious eaters that can eat just about anything they find, making it easy for most insect species to service even when certain food sources become scarce or even completely unavailable.
It is important to choose a long-term method for the eradication of cockroaches with the right application seen as soon as 21 days.
Implementing a combined approach with the use of excellent products and techniques will ensure that the infestation of cockroaches is thorough and effective, and by breaking the life cycle of cockroaches in your environment, the results should be good. Prevention is always better than cure; therefore, your environment must be kept pristinely clean, especially the spaces where food is kept, stored and prepared.
Once you have an infestation of cockroaches, it is important to call on the experts and not try to get rid of these hardy pests through D.I.Y methods. Our professional team will identify the eggs of cockroaches which look like minute black specks, plus we will identify all places where they breed which is usually dark hiding places, crevices, cupboards beneath sinks, and other moist, dark hiding places.
The application of the correct chemicals and pesticides must be applied to the right areas to ensure these areas become inhabitable to cockroaches.
