Vessel Pest Control


Vessel Pest Control In Singapore

The Difference Between Vessel Pest Control & General Pest Management

Pest control catered for ships and vessels require a different level of expertise compared to general pest control servicing in Singapore. This is because the environment that ships provide promotes certain kinds of pests to thrive, and worst, it encourages pests to be breed and transported to other countries. 

Now, ships would require sanitation certificates and to adhere to the guidelines given by the International Health Regulations (2005) to be free from diseases. Each ship that goes into international waters needs to renew the sanitation certificates every 6 months. To get certified would mean that your ship is free from pest.

Other than performing integrated pest control, crews have to undergo training on ship sanitation. They should also be given the materials and equipment needed to maintain a certain sanitation level on the ship consistently. In addition, every consumables and materials going onto the ship have to be certified safe as well.

Common Pests Found On Vessels Ships



When hygiene levels and food storage are not managed well, cockroaches will seek to enter the ship. They are experts in entering the cracks and the several entry points of a ship.

Treatment Methods



Rats are one of the most common pests that can be transferred onboard. They tend to lurk in the kitchens in the ships and would scavenge in sewage areas and pipe systems. 

Treatment Methods



A very common area of termite infestation is actually on areas around the pier and wood pilings. And thus would spread to the ship once the ship has left the port. It is difficult to detect this pest as they tend to live underground. 

Treatment Methods



Flies tend to get into food supplies and are often carried into the ship. In addition, in the kitchen area isn’t well maintained, flies will also tend to breed extensively and make a big mess within the ship. 

Treatment Methods



Because ships are constantly exposed and could easily collect rain water, ships tend to be a habitat for mosquitos to breed. Mosquitos could also infest a cargo, which could be transferred to ships easily.

Treatment Methods


Bed Bugs

Bed bugs breed very quickly, and can be easily carried into the ships by a guest. When a ship does not go through regular cleaning and sanitising, it increases the risk of a bed bug infestation as well.

Treatment Methods



Silverfish are attracted to damp areas with high humidity, and can be easily found on onboard vessels. These pests share a common food preference as humans, and thus would tend to enter a ship in search for food. They can even be found on a ship’s toilet, cabinets, etc.
