Integrated Pest Management: How to address the technician's areas of concern

 The information below serves as your guide on how to address the concerns mentioned in our assessment form, which the technician will provide along with the service report after treatment.

Follow-Up or Regular Pest Control Service:

If a property has an existing infestation, one treatment is usually not sufficient to completely eliminate pests. This is due to several factors, such as 

  • Pests develop immunity to certain chemicals, so it takes a while before they are affected by the treatment.
  • Openings in the property serve as entry points for outside pests, and until they are sealed, pests will continue to infest the property.
  • If the surrounding areas of the property are heavily infested, regardless of how clean one property is, pests may still infest it. Regular pest control is needed to create a chemical barrier for the property so pests will avoid entering it. This is especially common in condominiums, buildings, and houses built closely together.

Solution: After treatment, consult our Triple-A technician for an assessment of your property to determine if follow-up treatments are recommended.

Open Food Sources:

Easy access to food is the primary reason pests infest or breed on a property. This includes leaving leftovers, uneaten pet food, and even seeds exposed.

Solution: Store all food in tightly sealed containers and dispose of leftover food properly.

Waste and Compost:

Exposed food waste in your garbage area acts as a buffet for pests, making your property an ideal breeding ground for them.

Solution: Ensure all trash cans are properly covered to prevent pests from accessing them and trash with food inside the house are all emptied by the end of the day.

Water Sources:

In addition to food, easy access to water sources attracts pests to infest a property. This includes leaks, damaged pipes, and dripping faucets.

Solution: Repair all leaks and damaged pipes, and cover any open water sources. Ensure all faucets are tightly closed after each use.

Cracks, Gaps, Openings, or Entry Points:

Even small cracks or gaps can serve as entry points for pests. It is crucial to find and repair these openings to prevent pests from entering your property.

Solution: Seal all possible openings.

Trees and Branches:

Trees with branches reaching the roof can serve as entry points for rodents. 

Solution: Trimming these branches will prevent rodents from accessing the property.

Open Areas:

Terraces, open windows without screens, and broken windows can also serve as entry points for pests and should be covered to prevent their entry.

Clutter or Debris:

Clutter and debris provide hiding, shelter, and nesting places for pests, especially rodents and termites.

Solution: Take the time to declutter, especially if items are made of wood.


Rooms where food is accessible must be properly maintained to prevent pest attraction.

Solution: Keep these rooms as clean as possible to deter pests.

Past or Nearby Rodent Infestation:

Properties in areas with heavy pest infestations may attract pests from time to time.

Solution: Cover all possible entry points and schedule regular pest control services.

Frequently Asked Questions: General Pest Control by Spraying

Residual spraying for general pest control is one of the most common treatments that every household, commercial, and even industrial property avails from pest control companies like us. Although this service is highly effective in controlling the four prominent pests in properties (flies, ants, cockroaches, and mosquitoes), clients must also understand that one treatment doesn't always result in complete eradication of the infestation, especially in cases of heavy infestation.  

Clients must understand that to completely eliminate an infestation, they must follow our recommended integrated pest management program, which provides guidelines to clients on what they need to do on their part to make the pest control service effective. This usually involves improving sanitation practices and sealing possible pest entry points.

 So in this article, we aim to help clients understand how this works by answering the most common questions about general pest control by spraying:

Does your treatment have a pesticide odor? Can you use odorless chemical?

All pest control services uses chemicals that produce odors but these typically dissipate entirely after our recommended minimum drying time of 2 hours. However, if any odor persists beyond this period, extending the drying time by an additional hour or two usually resolves the issue.

While some chemicals we use have milder odors than others, we cannot consistently rely on a single chemical for a property. Overreliance on one chemical can lead to pests developing resistance, making it harder to control the infestation.

Is it harmful to the elderly, babies, or house pets?

For properties with elderly residents, infants, and house pets, our technicians are trained to apply treatments only in inaccessible areas, such as under or behind large furniture, beds, or chairs. However, as an additional precaution, we also recommend extending the minimum drying time from 2 to 4 hours or until the chemical odor dissipates.

Why are there even more cockroaches after the treatment?

Some properties may experience increased cockroach sightings or activity right after the service, but there's no need to be alarmed. This indicates that the treatment is working, and the sudden change in pest behavior means they are now confused and irritated including the ones hiding in the nest. This is because they are slowly dying and unaware that they are already out in the open.

Why am I still seeing cockroaches after the treatment?

    Although it generally takes up to 14 days to see the full effect of the treatment, there are several reasons why you may continue to see pests on your property:

    • The property may have openings or gaps serving as pest entry points, allowing outside pests to freely enter. Although they will eventually be affected by the treatment, it may take some time before they reach it. Hence, sightings may persist after the service, but it does not mean the treatment is ineffective.
    • Nocturnal insects like cockroaches are likely to hide in their nests during the treatment (day time) and will only be affected when they come out at night and have passed by the treated areas. This also explains why you might still see cockroach activity a few days after the service.
    • Cockroach eggs that hatch after the treatment will only be affected after they are exposed to the treated area.
    • If the property was not prepared for the treatment as outlined in the prep sheet, the technician can still treat the property, but they'll have fewer areas to treat. Consequently, it will also result in a longer time needed before the pests is affected by the treatment.
    • We may have rotated the chemical used in your property. Different types of pest control solutions have varying effects on pests. For example, an instant-kill solution terminates pests immediately, yet it has a low residual effect (little to no effect after it dries up). In contrast, other solution gradually kills pests but has longer residual effect lasting up to 90 days for residential properties and 7 to 30 days for commercial ones.
      • It is important to note that chemical rotation is crucial for an effective pest control service. We are required to rotate the chemicals used in each service to prevent the pests from building up immunity from it.
    • If the property has a heavy pest infestation, follow-up treatment as well as addressing areas of concern as stated in our service report are both needed to control the infestation.

    Can I schedule a cleaning service after the treatment?

    Having the property cleaned right after the service washes off the residual effect of the treatment. Therefore if the property is scheduled for cleaning, we recommend it be done before or at least 2 to 3 days after the residual spraying service and if possible - to skip the parts that was treated so as not to lessen the effect of the treatment. This includes the back of the furniture, parts of the wall, under the table, and other non-high touch areas.

    Why am I not seeing dead cockroaches in the treated areas after the treatment?

    It's normal to see pests die right after a treatment, but not seeing them afterward doesn't mean the treatment failed. They might have died in their hiding spots. As long as you notice fewer cockroaches over time, the treatment is still doing its job.

    What if I am unable to fix the recommendations stated in the report?

    Although pest control using chemicals is an effective way to decimate pests inside a property, eliminating the source of the infestation is crucial to stop the infestation and/or prevent a re-infestation. This includes changes in sanitation practices in the property, sealing of gaps and openings that pests use to enter the property, and water leaks that pests use as their water source.

    Please do not hesitate to ask our office or technician for alternatives to our recommendations if the first suggestion is not possible.

    If I address all issues /recommendations mentioned in the report, will you guarantee 100% pest elimination?

    Addressing all issues mentioned in the report will lower or may even end the pest infestation on your property. However, please keep in mind that there are many reasons why an infestation starts again in an area, including:

    • Pests that come in with your deliveries (furniture, old boxes, etc)
    • Pests that enter from a new entry point (windows without screens, door gaps, etc)
    • Pests brought in by guests / clients (accidentally through their bags) or pets

    This is also one of the reasons why follow-up treatments are always recommended to not only prevent a re-infestation but also detect early if there is a new concern that needs to be addressed. 

    Can you do all the repairs needed on my property?

    Yes, our office can send a proposal with all the needed repairs and our costing for your approval. 

    If you have any questions not addressed in this list, please feel free to contact us. We're here to help. You can reach us at 0917 517 8222 via text, call, or Viber, or email us at

    Pest Control for Businesses in the Philippines

     Pest control for businesses in the Philippines normally only includes general pest control service which includes treatment for flies, mosquitoes, cockroaches or ants. There are times when rodent or rat control will be required if the property suffers from a rat infestation, especially for food businesses. If you have just started a business or if you are looking for a pest control for your business, this guide will help you find the right pest control for you and learn what type of service you need. 

    pest control service in philippines

    Pest Control for Business in the Philippines Guide

    When looking for a pest control for your business, you first need to know the requirements of the government for your business. For any type of food business, you are required to have regular pest control service. In Quezon city, the requirements is at least monthly treatments. Non-food businesses or offices, the government requires at least a treatment every 6 months. However, it is recommended to ask your respective city halls as some may require less that the usual. 

    Pest Control for Food Businesses

    For food businesses, you may only avail general pest control treatment if you have no rodent infestation. Most business owners ask what if our property do not have any type of pest infestation, do we still need to avail pest control service? The answer is yes. It is a strict requirement to most cities to have general pest control or prevention treatment for those without any pest problem. 

    What type of general pest control treatment should we get?

    Not all general pest control treatment is recommended for food businesses. Some treatments may contaminate items used for cooking or eating and even food when implemented improperly. One of it is misting or fogging treatment that includes spraying very small particle droplets that can reach the smallest cracks, crevices and even holes of a room. And because of that, the droplets will reach all your kitchen utensils, plates, preparation table, etc. which will then require you to do an intensive general cleaning in your place. Not to mention, you would have to remove all the food items in the property during the treatment just to make sure no contamination happens. 

    Our best recommendation of general pest control treatment for restaurants is spraying or baiting. With this treatment, our technician will only be spraying in the walls, corners, beneath tables and chairs and other areas that will not hit any item or appliances used for food. Basically the preparation and after treatment procedure for spraying is not as laborious compared to misting.

    The only disadvantage of choosing spraying or misting treatment is if the main pest problem of your property are flying pests. In situations like this, ask the pest control business to come up of a program for your property so they can also target the flying pests which usually includes baiting treatment.

    What type of rodent control treatment should we get?

    For rodent treatment, we recommend trapping treatment rather than baiting. Although baiting is more effective and gets the job done faster, it can also result to seeing dead rats anywhere in the property, including a public space that customer may see or worse smell. 

    Pest Control for Non-Food Business

    For non-food businesses, you have the liberty of choosing between misting, spraying or baiting. We recommend the misting treatment if you have high infestation of flying pests like mosquitoes and flies. If your major problem is with crawling insects such as cockroaches and ants then you best go with the spraying treatment.

    Choosing the Right Pest Control Operator for Your Company

    When choosing the right pest control operator for your company, make sure they have the following characteristics:

    • They are an accredited pest control operator of your city hall
    • They only use approved pesticides by FPA
    • They have an updated business license and is a member of a pest control organization in the Philippines
    • They offer integrated pest management * with the company 

    *What is integrated pest management?

    Integrated pest management is basically working with the company how they can help lower the level of infestation in their property. This includes orienting the property's staff how to properly dispose food leftovers, sealing of any holes or openings that can be used as entry points by pests, and a lot more. In this way, the pest control operator will apply less aggressive treatment after a while which also means less expenses for your property. When you have successfully removed all the infestation in your property, the only treatment you need to avail is prevention treatment.

    With Triple-A Pest Terminator, Inc, we make sure to orient the property staff every visit how they can improve the pest situation in their place and include our findings in our service reports that we submit in every visit.

    Termite Control: Spraying and Dusting vs Baiting

    There are several types of termite control in the Philippines and the most common methods are spraying plus dusting and baiting. Based on our experience, both can effectively kill termites but each has its own advantages and disadvantages which we will discuss in details in this article.

    termite control baiting vs spraying and dusting

    Termite control in Philippines: SPRAYING AND DUSTING METHOD

    Spraying and dusting is not only the most common termite control method in the country but probably the first termite control method practiced in the country. It is also a very affordable treatment available as it requires no installation and instantly kills all termites who pass by the treated area for a number days. All the technician needs to do is spray in all areas of the property, focusing on cracks and crevices, and dusting or placing powder like pesticide in between walls by unscrewing the switches and sockets. 

    Is termite control by spraying and/or dusting 100% effective against termites?

    As mentioned, spraying and dusting method kills all termites that crosses the treated areas. In addition, all termites who comes in contact with contaminated termites also have a high chance of dying within a short amount of time. The only problem is that these contaminated termites may die before they even reach their nest which means the termite queen is still alive and continues to produce up to 30,000 eggs per day. For those who are not aware, termite workers may travel from 45 to 90 meters for food.

    This is the reason why customers who availed the spraying method 1 to 2 months ago call again for a second treatment. New termites have possibly made new tunnels to your home and started to be visible as they reach the surface of your walls. 

    So to answer the question if spraying and/or dusting an effective method in killing the termite, yes but it does not guarantee the eradication of the whole colony. However, it is affordable and fast so it can be a first-aid treatment you can consider if you are on a budget. 

    Termite control in Philippines: BAITING METHOD

    Termite control in Manila by baiting method normally requires a 12-month contract and at least a visit every 30 days which explains why it is more expensive compared to the spraying method. Every visit, pest control technicians will inspect the property from top to bottom and look for any active termite infestation. If an infestation is detected, the technician may install an above ground station with bait inside. 

    This is followed by a bi-monthly visit to assess the termite activity and add more bait if needed. During the treatment process, many clients comment that it seems there is an increase in termite activity which leads them to believe the treatment is not working. However, it is actually the opposite as the change in the termite's behavior means the bait is working and is making them prefer it from the wood materials in your house. 

    Depending on the size of the termite colony, it may take a month up to 4 months before a termite colony is completely eradicated. Since it takes some time for the bait to kill a termite, there is plenty of time for the termite to reach their queen and feed it a couple of times before they are affected by the bait. This is also the reason why baiting method guarantees the death of the colony as it will certainly reach the termite queen. 

    How do you know if a termite colony is dead by termite control by baiting method?

    One way to know if the anay control by baiting method is effective is when the technicians shows the client that instead of the termite workers, only the termite soldiers are the only ones eating the bait. Normally, termite workers are the ones that you see emerging from your walls, consuming the wood and bringing it to their queen. The soldier's job is to only protect the workers from any threat like ants. If soldiers are the only ones left in the bait station foraging for food, it means all the workers are dead. From there, the soldiers should also be gone within a month. 

    Guarantee included with the termite control baiting method

    Another reason why we always recommend the baiting method compared to spraying method is that it not only guarantees the eradication of the whole colony but also will continue to inspect your property for 12 months and will kill any new sighted termite colony with no additional cost!

    Baiting method: termite control and prevention

    If you want an added protection from termites via the baiting method, it also comes with a termite prevention program wherein technicians will install permanent in ground or in concrete stations in the perimeter of your property. In this way, any new termite colony invading your property will be attracted with these stations instead of your house. These stations come with attractants and baits so they start consuming the bait as soon as they find the station.

    How much does termite control by baiting cost?

    The cost of termite control by baiting for each property is different depending on its location and linear meter. The great thing about our company, Triple-A Pest Terminator, Inc, is that we offer FREE INSPECTION SERVICE with absolutely NO COMMITMENTS so we can present you with our proposal and exact service cost for your property. You can use this proposal to compare our service inclusions and compare it with other companies so you can see which one better fits your needs and budget.

    Some types of pest control can be done DIY. However, if this is for termites, its best to contact a professional as termites will never go away unless you are able to get rid of their queen. 


    How to Eradicate a Rodent Infestation?

    There are different factors why rodents breed and nest in a property and this includes:

    Openings and Gaps - Rodents are always looking for a potential breeding place for their young. This includes any openings leading to your house even the smallest crack or hole.

    Poor Sanitation - If there is one thing that attracts a rodent to breed in a property is the cleanliness of a property, particularly the garbage area. Rats like to hangout in places where there are exposed leftover food and open water sources.

    Surrounding Environment - If the surrounding environment around your property is infested by rodents, there is a big chance these rodents will go to explore your property, whether it is kept clean or not.

    If you are having rodent problems in your home and wish to eradicate them, there are several ways you can do this:

    1. Seal or openings and gaps including doors, holes and any cracks

    2. Keep your house clean by removing all open water source, washing your dishes right away,
        dispose any leftover food properly and always keep your garbage can closed.

    3. If you live in a rodent infested environment, have our technician inspection your property for
        FREE to find the rodent entry points and how to prevent it from entering your property.

    4. As our technician monitor and treat your property regularly, your job is to make sure you follow all our recommendations.


    Why Cockroaches Keep Coming Back to Your House?

    If you start to see cockroach in your house during the daytime, you should be alarmed. As most cockroach species are nocturnal animals, the only time they can be seen during the daytime exploring your house is when the infestation inside the cracks, crevices, and wall voids are too crowded and they have to find a new spot to nest. The only exception is if the infestation in your house is oriental cockroaches which are known to be attracted to light. Other than that, you should be contacting us so we can send our highly skilled and trained technician to check your property for you.

    There are several reasons why a cockroaches keep coming back to your house. And these include:
    Poor sanitation. Keeping your house clean includes never leaving the dish unclean overnight, no leftover food exposed in any room in the house, no stagnant water or open water source such as leakage in the property, and the house must be regularly cleaned so any crumbs or small bits of food are removed from the property.

    Openings and gaps. If cockroaches can find a hole or a crack to squeeze their body in and enter your property, then regardless of how well you clean your house - they will still keep coming back. If you have one of our technicians inspect your property, they can help you identify these gaps and give you recommendations how to fix it.

    Surrounding area. If you are living in a neighborhood suffering from a pest infestation, it will be very hard to keep the cockroaches out. This is why regular general pest control treatment is recommended for both commercial and residential properties.

    Visitors. Particularly for commercial properties, you cannot control the number of people visiting your property everyday. Its not possible to inspect everything a person brings inside your house or office to make sure they do not bring any infested item. But if you're property is regularly treated for pest control, you don't have to worry as they will be affected by our treatment as soon as they crawl into any of our treated spots.
