Cockroaches – Everywhere!

Yes, the roaches irrelevant of which of the species they may belong to, they are undeniably among the most common pests found all over the world.

They are deemed as a nuisance because of several reasons.

They spread the filth and unpleasant odor in the surrounding areas as they usually leave in close association with people. They also ruin the food, fabrics, and book-bindings.

They disgorge portions of their partially digested food at intervals and drop feces. They also discharge a nauseous secretion both from their mouths and from glands opening on the body which give a long-lasting, offensive cockroach smell to areas or food visited by them.

The most serious reason of the nuisance is their ability to spread diseases. They have a potential of causing food poisoning in humans. They are also responsible for transmission of diseases like cholera, diarrhea, staphylococcus, streptococcus, hepatitis, typhoid and dysentery. They can also be a risk for people with allergies and asthma when they make their homes indoors.

Hence the nuisance created by them is the deadliest and cannot be avoided as they are found everywhere. There is evidence showing the nuisance of these nocturnal roaches. Let me mention a few of them.

‘Cockroach infestation’ found at one Houston-area restaurant

HOUSTON – KPRC 2′s Bill Spencer made his weekly rounds to restaurants in town to make sure they are keeping up to the health standards in Houston.

Inspectors discovered live cockroaches. One live cockroach found on the stainless steel wall behind the stove/grill area. One live cockroach found in the kitchen office area.

Restaurant cooked food in kitchen with 60 cockroaches in its microwave

22 Nov 2019

A restaurant was shut down after health inspectors found 60 live cockroaches inside a microwave in its kitchen. Parallel China Express in Kansas City, Kansas was temporarily closed by the Kansas Department of Agriculture after two failed inspections in late October and early November found an apparent cockroach infestation. The inspector found six ‘priority’ violations when they visited the restaurant on October 29, noting five live roaches in the dish area and 30 live roaches on the cooks’ line, on the wall and in equipment. Roaches were also found in holes in the ceiling and wall, behind the steam table and in reach of the cooler.

Going through the evidence one can learn that the roaches’ nuisance is not restricted to only one sector but is found in many sectors such as residential, hotels, airlines, etc.

Though the roaches are tropical in origin they are also found in the habitat where warmth, moisture, and food are adequate. The roaches are known for their extraordinary survival skills as they move towards the places where they find water.

Roaches usually live in groups. As they are nocturnal in nature they are active during nights and during the daytime, they hide in the cracks and crevices in walls, door frames, and furniture. They are also found in secure places like bathrooms, cupboards, steam tunnels, basements, electric devices, drains, and sewer systems.

The roaches also run from dishes, utensils, work surfaces, and floors in search of food in the kitchen areas. They make their way toward any water source including irrigation systems, swimming pools, and leaky water pipes or faucets.

Roaches are the important pests as they feed on a variety of food from starchy and sugary materials to the cardboards and nails of babies and sick/sleeping persons.

The nuisance caused by them is such great that they are also responsible for shutting down of many restaurants.

Hence to help alleviate or else completely eradicate the infestation we C Tech Corporation provide you with the best effective solution TermirepelTM. TermirepelTM is an anti-insect aversive developed on the grounds of green chemistry and technology.

Our product works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application. The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.

Termirepel™ is thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not kill or harm the insect but repels them. It does not volatilize and does not degrade the soil. It is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, REACH, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

TermirepelTM is an eco-friendly product that acts as an aversive to repel the pesky insects like roaches.  TermirepelTM do not kill the targeted as well as non-targeted species but just repel them causing no harm no to human and environment.

TermirepelTM is available in the form of a masterbatch, liquid concentrate, and lacquer. Our TermirepelTM masterbatch can be used in polymer base applications like wires, cables, irrigation pipes, polymeric vessels, and other various applications.

TermirepelTM liquid concentrate can be mixed in the paints to cover the areas like cracks and crevices of walls and hidden places where the roaches tend to survive.

TermirepelTM lacquer is the topical coating to cover places like bathrooms, cupboards, steam tunnels, etc. And the spray is easy to use product that can be sprayed anywhere.

Hence we provide you with the best effective solution.

Bedbugs- a threat to human life

Bedbugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of the animals and humans usually at night. Adult bedbugs have flat bodies and have the size of an apple seed. After feeding their bodies swell and are a reddish color. Bedbugs don’t fly but move instantly over floor and walls. Female bedbugs lay hundreds of eggs size of a speck of dust over a lifetime.

Immature or undeveloped bedbugs shed skin five times before reaching the maturity and required a feed as blood before shedding. Under favorable conditions, they can develop in a month and produce three or more generations every year. Bedbugs are mainly active at night and bite humans when they are sleeping. They feed blood through their elongated beak and generally feed blood 3-10 minutes and crawl away.

Sometimes bites of bedbugs are painless at first but later on, leads to itchy sensation. Flea bites generally around ankles and bedbugs are anywhere on exposed skin and their bites have red spots, unlike flea bites, do.

Infestation sign

Once you wake up with itchy sensation in the skin then it may be bedbugs in your bed, and in used furniture around when it bites. Other signs are,

  • Bloodstains on pillows or even on bedsheets.
  • The dark spot of bedbugs on bed sheets and mattresses and even on walls.
  • Their a fecal spot, eggshell and shed skins in areas where bedbugs hide.
  • A bad odor or unpleasant smell from the bedbug’s scent gland.

Bedbugs can attach to clothing so always check the area around the bed like inside bookshelf, books, electronic devices, carpet even closet as well.

Bedbug bites to humans

Bedbugs discovered at Penn Middle School in Penn Township

Bedbugs have been found at Penn Middle School in the Penn-Trafford School District.

District officials alerted parents Wednesday that a student was found with bedbugs on their body. No additional bugs were found in the student’s belongings.

When a professional exterminator and the district’s maintenance director began searching classrooms frequented by the student, no additional evidence of an infestation was found.

District officials said the exterminator will install monitoring traps, and if there are any signs of an infestation, the district will move toward a large-scale eradication.

“We will be monitoring this situation closely and consulting with the Department of Health,” Penn Middle Principal Jim Simpson said a news release.

Bedbugs feed on human blood, and are usually active at night when people are sleeping. Adults have flat, rusty red-colored bodies that swell and become brighter red when they feed. They are about the size of an apple seed.

Their presence is not associated with the cleanliness of a particular location, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Bites from a bedbug are initially painless but turn to large, itchy welts after a day or so. Their presence can also be detected through the rusty red, blood-filled fecal matter they excrete on mattresses or other furniture.

Federal workers back in office after bed bug infestation

Published: Tuesday, October 15, 2019

OTTAWA – Federal workers who had been forced to work from home after a bed bug infestation were mostly back in the office Tuesday.

Last week, hundreds of employees stayed out of the building on Cremazie in Gatineau because of the infestation. They work for Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada.

On Tuesday the union representing the workers emailed CTV News saying that all workers were back at their work stations after the bed bug treatments.

Workers on the third floor were delayed by a couple of hours on tuesday. That floor was the last to be treated for bed bugs.

The union also said the IRCC will be testing the building regularly and checking for bed bugs in other buildings it operates.

The union says it is also offering tips to employees on how to stop the spread of bed bugs at work and in their homes.

To get the solution, why not we opt for the low hazard, low-toxic, and eco- friendly products provided by C Tech Corporation.

At C Tech Corporation, we manufacture a product named Termirepel™which is an anti-termite and insect repellent. The product works on the mechanism of repellence and does not kill the target species but repel them. The product is effective against a broad spectrum of insects and does not cause any harm to humans and other non-target species.

Termirepel™ is available in the form of a spray, liquid concentrate, lacquer, wood polish additive, and masterbatch.

Termirepel™ masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like water pipes, wires, cables, polymeric equipment, etc. This would result in the final application being insect repellent.

Termirepel™ liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of the house, buildings, schools, ceilings, classrooms, staff rooms, washrooms, canteens, etc. to repel bedbugs and other insects from the area required as per need.

Termirepel™ an insect repellent spray is easy to use the product and compatible with most of the surfaces.

Termirepel™ lacquer can be directly applied to the already installed application such as furniture, wooden articles, sewage pipes, wires and cables. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like metal, concrete, polymer, ceramic, etc.

The defoliator moth – Gypsy moth

The tiny critters with hairy bodies feast on leaves and wreak havoc on trees.

Those are the gypsy moths who cause this nuisance.

Gypsy moth caterpillars are easy to identify because they possess characteristics not found on other leaf-feeding caterpillars. They have five pairs of blue dots followed by six pairs of red dots lining the back.

The moth (the adult stage) is usually present in July and August. The male moths are brown and tend to fly in zigzag patterns. The female moths are white or cream colored and do not fly at all. The female lays her eggs in masses, usually on branches and trunks of trees. Egg masses can also be found on patio furniture, recreational vehicles, and other outdoor items. The egg masses are cream or buff in color and about an inch or so in length.  The eggs inside is black and palletlike. Each mass may contain 400-600 eggs.

They are responsible for causing mortality of susceptible host trees. Gypsy moth caterpillars prefer hardwood trees and are known to feed on more than 300 tree species including, but not limited to oak, apple, some poplars, willow, alder, and hawthorn.  The caterpillars are defoliators; they eat the leaves of the host trees. Young caterpillars eat small holes in the middle of the leaves, while older caterpillars feed on the outer edge of the leaf inward. Heavy defoliation by the larval stage of this pest causes stress to the infested host plants. Gypsy moths defoliate millions of acres of trees in the United States yearly; repeated infestations weaken and kill the trees.

The nuisance caused by the gypsy moth is spreading vastly and the evidence for it is here!

Aircraft to spray for invasive gypsy moths in Snohomish Co.

WOODWAY, Wash. (AP) — Washington state officials have scheduled an aerial drop of insecticide to stop an invasive moth and to prevent forest foliage damage.

The Daily Herald reported that the state Department of Agriculture announced about 2 square miles in Woodway and in an Everett neighborhood will be sprayed with more than 655 gallons of soil bacteria.

Department spokesperson Karla Salp says the treatment is scheduled for Friday, depending on weather conditions.

WINGED INVASION 

Giant Asian moths that lay ‘500 eggs at a time and are an IMMINENT danger’ are invading US

  • Felix Allen
  • 15 May 2020

GIANT Asian gypsy moths invading America are an “imminent danger” to farms and the natural landscape, experts have warned.

The 3.5-inch insects can fly 20 miles and lay 500 eggs at a time, quickly creating a plague of voracious caterpillars that strip trees bare of leaves.

The state’s Department of Agriculture warned: “This imminent danger of infestation seriously endangers the agricultural and horticultural industries of the state of Washington and seriously threatens the economic well-being and quality of life of state residents.”

Both gypsy moths from Asia and Asian-European hybrid gypsy moths threaten the state, the proclamation warns.

Pest control methods have been used to stop the menace the caused by these insects. But those methods did not work to stop the nuisance.

To stop the nuisance caused by these pests there is a need for an effective solution and C Tech Corporation has one!

The unique product TermirepelTM manufactured by C Tech Corporation is an insect aversive repellent which repels insects.

The product available in the form of liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio and lacquer which can be applied topically to the applications.

To keep the insects at the bay TermirepelTM lacquer can be sprayed or coated on the tree trunks. The already installed tree guards can be coated with the lacquer.

TermirepelTM is available in the form of the masterbatch, which can be incorporated with the polymeric applications like tree guards, irrigation pipes, agricultural films, wires and cables etc. to keep the gypsy moth away. The polymeric tree guard can be manufactured incorporating our masterbatch into the applications while they are manufactured.

The product is also effective against a multitude of other insects and pests like beetles, mayflies, thrips, aphids, etc. The repelling mechanism of the product would ward off the scale insects and other insects that could damage the trees. Thus, using TermirepelTM would effectively ensure that the area around us remain safe and protected from the pests for a long period of time.

Pesky Lovebugs!

Ahh…..the lovebug! As you drive down the highways, you may encounter a nuisance in the form of splattered insects on your windshield, hood, and radiator grill. The nuisance may occur in joined pairs that are less than an inch long. Lovebugs can be a big hazard while driving. They love to swarm near roadways and as a result, cars that have driven through the clouds of these insects end up with decreased visibility and a need for a serious car wash! Although referred to as bugs these insects are actually flies. These insects often end up splatted on your windshield and front grill. Many of the cars coming off the highway are covered in insect gunk

They’re more closely related to biting midges and mosquitoes rather than other common bugs like grasshoppers or termites. Their bodies are black with redheads, and they’re usually seen in pairs. The lovebug (Plecia nearctica Hardy) is a species of fly that happens to flutter about as a male and female attached together. Both sexes are a dull black with a red blotch just behind the head.

Annoying to drive, they can swarm so thickly that driving through a cloud of lovebugs may impair your visibility while driving. There have been claims that the lovebug gunk, when left on the car, will etch the paint on a car. At times, the mating of lovebugs become so abundant in an area that they become a serious traffic hazard.

But why are they attracted to roads and vehicles? Lovebugs are attracted to automobile exhaust that has been irradiated with UV light (i.e., sunlight). It has been proposed that the chemicals in car exhaust, aldehydes, and formaldehyde, are similar to the chemicals released by decaying organic matter.Even heat is an attractant for lovebugs and heats radiating off asphalt may be attracting these insects. They love to swarm on automobiles as it a very good attractant for them.

Let us look at some evidence:

Pesky love bugs are back on the Suncoast creating a nuisance

May 12, 2020

SARASOTA COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) – They’re back! love bugs are swarming across the Suncoast. They are here every year, usually for a month around May and for another month around September.

“We don’t like them, it’s a lot of work to keep them off our cars, off our paint and off of our windshields,” said Stacy Young, a Myakka Head resident.

Although they are a nuisance, an expert with UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County says they are harmless.

“They don’t bite, they don’t sting, they’re here for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to reproduce,” said Carol Wyatt-Evens, a Chemicals in the Environment Agent for UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County.

Bug off! Florida locals complain about ‘extra annoying’ swarms of lovebugs invading the Sunshine State in mating season, splattering cars and sidewalks
  • Millions of lovebugs are descending upon Florida and plaguing local residents
  • The pesky insects splatter their guts and eggs on car windshields and bonnets 
  • They swarm twice a year to mate but locals say this season is especially bad 
  • Experts agree but say swarms of the invasive species were worse in the 1970s

By SOPHIE WINGATE

PUBLISHED:  9 May 2019

Massive swarms of lovebugs are turning Florida’s skies black as they descend upon the Sunshine State to mate.

Locals are calling it the worst invasion ever.

Despite their cute name, which comes from the insects flying around in mating pairs, they are a nuisance pest for residents.

Millions of lovebugs are invading Florida. The insects are attracted to the heat of highways and splatter their guts and eggs on windshields and bonnets

‘Instead of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds, it’s the lovebugs,’ Okeechobee County resident Katrina Sheffield told WPTV.

‘They are absolutely everywhere. It’s horrendous.’

While they are around all year, the pesky bugs usually live underground and only form their dreaded swarms during their mating season in May and again in  September.

Attracted by the heat of asphalt and vehicle fumes on highways, the swarms madden motorists as their guts and eggs splatter on windshields and hoods.

They often fly into joggers’ mouths, get caught in people’s hair and force outdoor restaurants to close.

Their carcasses speckle homes, businesses and sidewalks.

What can be done when such unwanted guest is invading on our vehicles.

The current methods which are being used to combat such pests are fumigation and toxic pesticides to combat against this pest menace. Fumigation is tedious and expensive. These pesticides kill the target as well as non-target species.

This problem needs to addressed immediately.

We have a solution for you!!!

We at C Tech Corporation offer a solution TermirepelTM which is a non-toxic,non-hazardous additive that helps to keeps the lovebugs away from the vehicles. It is a broad spectrum repellent which works against almost 500 species of pestering bugs thus efficaciously keeping them away from the application.

Our products are available in the masterbatch, liquid concentrate(which can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio) and lacquer.

The product available in the form of liquid concentrate can be mixed with paints in a pre-determined ratio and can be applied on the interior and exterior of houses, offices, schools, hospitals, warehouses, etc. To repel these insects the product can be coated on the automobiles in liquid concentrate or lacquer form.

The masterbatch can be incorporated in polymer applications of automobiles to keep the pests away. The polymeric applications like wires and cables, pipes agricultural films and mulches, irrigation pipes etc. can be manufactured using our masterbatch.

The product available in the form of lacquer can be used as a direct application and used on most of the surfaces like wood, metal, polymer, concrete, ceramic. The lacquer can be applied on the wooden fences, metal decors, already installed applications like wires and cables, pipes, tree guards etc.

TermirepelTM spray can be used to spray around the vehicles and car bonnet to keep the bugs away.

Our product works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects.

Termirepel™ is thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not kill or harm the insect but repels them. It does not volatilize and does not degrade the soil. It is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, REACH, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Bedbugs on the bus

One would think bed bugs can only be found crawling around in mattresses.

Apparently not.

Yes, you can catch bedbugs from anywhere. Despite their name, bedbugs aren’t actually limited to beds and can live anywhere that’s soft, warm, and which has a regular food supply. While this means our beds are the perfect home for them as we sleep in them every day, bedbugs are resilient and can make a home on the sofa, in the carpet, in furniture showrooms, and on public transport.

A lot of people equate bedbugs with poor maintenance. That’s not true! Some of the best-kept homes, hotels…even buses… have had to deal with these parasites.

Buses, trains, and even taxis are ideal for bedbugs as they’re warm and sheltered, with a steady supply of food (that’s us!) coming and going all day long. As bedbugs need blood meals before they can lay eggs, they can rapidly infest seats on public transport and, on occasion, whole buses and train carriages.

About the size of an apple seed, bedbugs hide in the cracks and crevices of beds, box springs, headboards, bed frames and any other objects around a bed. The risk of encountering bedbugs increases if you spend time in places with high turnovers of nighttime guests — such as hotels, hospitals or homeless shelters.

KSRTC fights bedbugs in its non-AC buses too

Christin Mathew Philip | TNN | Updated: Nov 8, 2019

BENGALURU: After air-conditioned (AC) premium buses, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) has begun treating bedbug-infested non-AC buses in its fleet.

Earlier, KSRTC had been fumigating only AC buses, but now the corporation has decided to extend it to Karnataka Sarige services as well. The move came after some passengers from non-AC buses complained about begbugs. Central Warehouse Corporation has been entrusted with the job of removing the bugs.

Video shows alleged bed bugs on SEPTA bus

A woman says she was on Bus 26 going to Torresdale Ave. when she was bitten.

By Anna │September 5, 2018

SEPTA officials are investigating after two unsettling videos emerged this week, depicting several brown bugs crawling over the fabric on the back of a bus seat.

One video was posted online Wednesday afternoon by Crystal Lopez, who says she was on SEPTA bus 26 to Torresdale Avenue Tuesday when she was bitten by what she believes are bed bugs. Lopez said she had her arm draped over the back of the seat when she suddenly felt a burning sensation. When she moved her arm, she saw the bites—and the bugs.

“There were over 1,000,” Lopez estimated, adding, “They were coming out of the cracks in the seat. It was a lot.”

So I would like to share with everyone what I experienced on the #26 #septabus yesterday this is disgusting this goes to show that septa is not clean you know how many people I’m sure took bed bugs home with them yesterday this is unacceptable I definitely made a complaint to the septa supervisor

Lopez quickly told the driver, who pulled the bus over and ordered everyone off.

To get rid of this menace, authorities seem to be spending a lot of money on bedbug control and eradication methods, but nothing seems to be effective enough.

To get the solution, why not we opt for the low hazard, low-toxic, and eco- friendly products provided by C Tech Corporation.

At C Tech Corporation, we manufacture a product named Termirepel™ which is an anti-termite and insect repellent. The product works on the mechanism of repellence and does not kill the target species but repel them.

Termirepel™ liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of the buses, depots, washrooms, canteens, etc. to repel bedbugs and other insects from the area required as per need.

Termirepel™ an insect repellent spray is an easy to use product and compatible with most of the surfaces. A bedbug repellent spray is available which can be diluted in water and can be sprayed later as per need to repel the bugs.

Termirepel™ lacquer can be directly applied to the already installed application such as seats, wires and cables, etc. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like metal, concrete, polymer, ceramic, etc.

Termirepel™ wood polish additive can be mixed with wood polish and then applied on wooden articles and objects to protect them from insect attack.

Enemy of Growers – Aphids!

Aphids are also known as the enemy of growers!

The planted crops are easily attacked by aphids causing a huge loss to the crop growers.

The evidence for the same is reported as below:

Aphid attack leaves wheat growers worried

Mar 24, 2020

Sameer Singh

Tribune News Service

Bathinda, March 23

Farmers in the region are worried as few weeks prior to the harvesting season, aphid (kala tela) has attacked the standing wheat crop.

Farmers from villages in Mansa rued that the crop was first damaged by heavy unseasonal rains and hailstorm and now the aphid attack has come to haunt them. Though the aphid attack has affected crop in several villages in the region, farmers of Khokhar Kalan, Bhai Desa, Burj Rathi, Burj Dhilwan, Burj Hari, Ubha, Khiali Kalan, Bhaini Bhagha, Kot Lallu, Nangal Kalan and Nangal Khurd villages are hit the most. They are now resorting to sprinkling of pesticides to minimise damage.

Aphid invasion causing a buggy situation in Calgary

By Tom Ross

Posted Sep 4, 2019

CALGARY (660 NEWS) — If you have ventured outside on a mild Calgary evening over the past few weeks, you may have found yourself swatting at the air a little more than normal.

There’s an influx of aphids this year, with countless little insects buzzing around causing a nuisance.

It’s not too dramatically different from some other years, but conditions were perfect for a high population this summer and fall.

“We had a fair amount of moisture in this part of the province, more so than maybe previous years, and that affords a lot of plant growth,” said Dr. Ken Fry, an instructor in the School of Animal Science and Horticulture at Olds College. “Since the aphids feed on plants, they’ve had lots of food, so their numbers build up over the summer. And hence, you get large numbers in the fall going to head out to over-winter.”

Aphids don’t really live that long, but this is their most active time of year.

The bugs are deep in the throes of mating season, and afterwards, need to find a nice safe place to store their eggs over the winter.

While it is an annoyance for now, fortunately, Fry is confident it will not last much longer.

They have proven to be the enemies of the growers, haven’t they?!

So, what is an aphid??

Let’s know!

Aphids have soft pear-shaped bodies with long legs and antennae and may be green, yellow, brown, red, or black depending on the species and the plants they feed on. A few species appear waxy or woolly due to the secretion of a waxy white or gray substance over their body surface.

Generally, adult aphids are wingless, but most species also occur in winged forms, especially when populations are high or during spring and fall. The ability to produce winged individuals provides the pest with a way to disperse to other plants when the quality of the food source deteriorates.

There are numerous species of aphids found throughout the world. These garden pests are usually most active in the springtime and decrease with a rise in outside temperatures.

They live on plants, especially on the new plant growth and buds, and the eggs can survive the winter. Although aphids live in colonies, they will move to other plants when their host plant is dying or overpopulated.

Aphids are among the most feared pests among growers in temperate regions.

What kind of damage can they do?

Aphids passively feed on the sap of phloem vessels in plants and extract the plant’s fluids and nutrients which turn the leaves yellow and stunt shoots. Some species inject the toxin into plants, which causes leaves to curl and further distorts growth. The newly developed plant becomes unhealthy and hence may die but the larger plants may survive with some damage.

Aphids produce a sweet and sticky excretion known as honeydew which turns black when affected by sooty mold fungus. The black spots affect the photosynthesis cycle and the plant eventually die. The aphid’s honeydew not only attracts the sooty mold fungus but also ants because the honeydew contains necessary ingredients like amino acids, protein, and sugar the fungus and ant requires.

All these were the direct and indirect damages to the plant/crops but the most harmful consequence of aphids is the Transmission of Diseases. Aphids can transmit dozens of viruses from a diseased plant to healthy in few seconds, especially through the winged generation. The biggest problem with viruses is that there is no remedy for them so that the infection of a plant that is not tolerant or resistant to the virus leads inevitably to a decline in the final production.

There are many conventional methods to prevent the plants and crops from aphids but all are ineffective. Pesticides are used which have failed to keep these pests away from the crops.

Knowing all the damages caused by aphids and the ineffectiveness of the conventional methods use,  let’s now know how to combat these pests.

C Tech Corporation can offer you the effective solution to overcome the damages caused by aphids, TermirepelTM is an ideal solution for prevention from inflicts of Aphids.

TermirepelTM works on the mechanism of repellency. The product triggers a fear response within the pest whenever it comes across an application treated  with our products, thereby exploiting the fight or flight response or sending chemical signals to insects that there is danger using semiochemicals.

The product is non-toxic, non-hazardous, and an insect aversive repellent.  It is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, REACH, APVMA, NEA, EU BPR compliant and FIFRA exempted.

TermirepelTM is developed on the basis of green chemistry and technology.

TermirepelTM masterbatch can be incorporated in plastic tree guards, fencing of trees, mulches, films, guard bags, floating row covers, polymeric equipment, etc.

The installed tree trenches, fences, guards, etc. can be coated with our topical solutions namely TermirepelTM liquid concentrate and TermirepelTM lacquer.

The spray product can be sprayed in areas of warehouses, equipment rooms, etc. to protect the yield from aphid attack.

Farmers grapple with Armyworm Horror

Just when the farmers across countries in eastern Africa were tackling with the devastating drought situation, they were being threatened by an invasive pest. The fall armyworm.!

The Fall Armyworms are spreading like a wildfire and causing a havoc.

The fall armyworm can damage and destroy a wide variety of crops in its larvae stage which causes large economic damage. Larvae can also burrow into the growing point and affect the growth of plants. The larvae penetrate crops and feed from the inside. Larvae cause damage by consuming foliage. Young larvae initially consume leaf tissue from one side. The larvae may do the damage but the adult moths ensure the rapid spread of the pest. Moths are very strong flyers, covering vast distances, so the infestation can occur in very short time.

Fall armyworm larvae can wreak havoc on a wide range of crops based on their food preferences. Destruction can happen almost overnight because the first stages of a caterpillar’s life require very little food, and the later stages require about 50 times more.

The pest reproduces at a rapid speed; an adult female can lay up to 1844 eggs/female (Barros et al. 2010), and several and overlapping generations occur every year.

In its larval stage, it can cause significant damage to crops, if not well managed. The pest mainly feeds on maize/corn but can attack and survive on more than 100 plant species including rice, sorghum, sugarcane, cabbage, beet, peanut, soybean, alfalfa, onion, cotton, pasture grasses, millet, tomato, potato, etc. It poses an enormous and wide-scale risk to the agriculture sector and it stands to intensify global poverty and hunger.

It is estimated that almost 40% of those species that armyworms target are economically important.

The fall armyworm was first detected in Central and Western Africa in early 2016 and has quickly spread to almost all maize growing countries in Africa and reached South Africa in 2017. Because of trade and the moth’s strong flying ability, it has the potential to spread further. The farmer’s livelihoods are at risk as the non-native insect threatens to reach Asia and Europe.

The Fall armyworm has been reported to cause annual losses of US$600 million in Brazil alone.

There are 208 million people dependent on maize for food security in sub-Saharan Africa. Maize also provides crucial income for small-holder farmers in the region.

Currently, more than 300 million Africans depend on maize as their main food source, and 46 of 53 countries in sub-Saharan Africa cultivate the crop.

Fall Army Worm has cost African economies billions of pounds in crop losses

Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences International (Cabi) chief scientist Dr. Matthew Cock said: “This invasive species is now a serious pest spreading quickly in tropical Africa and with the potential to spread to Asia.”

If proper control measures are not implemented, the fall armyworm could cause extensive maize yield losses of up to $6.2 billion per year in just 12 countries in Africa where its presence has been confirmed, according to the Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences International (CABI).

The damages are reported as follows:

Fall armyworm found near Broome

21 Apr 2020

The invasive pest fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda) has been confirmed near Broome following earlier discovery of the pest in Kununurra.

The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) has identified two specimens, the first collected on forage sorghum south of Broome and the second on Rhodes grass on a property east of Broome.

Fall armyworm is native to tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas.

Since 2016 it has rapidly spread to and throughout Africa, the Indian subcontinent, China and Southeast Asia. It has been found in north Queensland and the Northern Territory.

DPIRD is working with growers and industry to help ensure industries are prepared for and can minimise the impacts of fall armyworm.

Pheromone traps have been distributed in Kununurra, Broome, Carnarvon and Geraldton, as part of surveillance to help determine spread of the pest.

Fall army worms destroy crops worth Sh3 billion

By Anyango Otieno | May 24th 2018

Fall army worms have destroyed Sh3 billion worth of crop, according to Migori Governor Okoth Obado.

The pest is known to mainly feed on maize, but it can also infest close to 100 other crops, including rice, wheat, sorghum and avocado. “If you look at the damage that has been caused by the worm since its presence was detected in Kenya, we have lost over Sh3 billion. It is estimated that as a country we have lost between Sh3 billion and Sh5 billion as a result of crops being destroyed by the fall army worms,” said Mr Obado at a workshop at Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Services offices in Nairobi.

Farmers were advised to try a method called push-and-pull, which may not require a lot of effort to be put in place. This involves farmers growing other crops that are repellant to the pests. But how feasible is this? And is growing some other crop a solution to this?

Pesticides failed to give results and the armyworms have even developed a resistance towards the traditional pesticides used. Evidence for this is as follows:

Resistance to the usual pesticides makes armyworm more dangerous

By Agatha Ngotho │ April 16, 2018

Agriculture is grappling with many pests already, and as USAid’s Regina Eddy says, the armyworm is unique in that it is resistant to many conventional pesticides. Eddy is the coordinator of Fall Armyworm Task Force at the USAid Bureau of Food Security.

She said the pest also has a voracious appetite that particularly targets maize, which is a vital staple crop in Kenya and for many families in Africa. Eddy said the pest can cause billions of dollars in damage and put hundreds of millions of people at risk of hunger.

“The fall armyworm has been identified in over 35 countries in the past year in sub-Saharan Africa. This poses a great problem to agriculture in Africa, threatening food security and livelihoods,” she said on Wednesday during a video press conference with African journalists.

Is there any solution available to combat these pests?

Yes, to get rid of these pests we have an eco-friendly solution!

At C Tech Corporation, we provide you with Termirepel™ which is an insect aversive repellent. Termirepel™ is manufactured on the basis of green technology. It is extremely low toxic, non-hazardous, non-mutagenic and non-carcinogenic anti-insect aversive. Also, it is durable under extreme climatic conditions such as changes in temperature, rainfall, water pressure, etc.

Our product is ROHS, ROHS2, RoHS3, EU BPR, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted. Our product will not kill the targeted as well as non-targeted species but only repel which helps in maintaining the ecological balance of the earth.

Our product works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application. The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.

Termirepel™ is available in three basic forms: Masterbatch, liquid concentrate, and lacquer.

Termirepel™ Masterbatch is specially made for polymeric applications and used as additives in their processing time. It can be incorporated into the polymeric applications like the agricultural films and mulches, irrigation pipes, tree guards, greenhouse films etc. used for crop cultivation purpose. The product can be incorporated into the cables, and other applications used for agriculture.

Termirepel™ liquid concentrate is to be mixed in paints in pre-determined proportion and can be applied on the concrete fences around farms. It can be used on the interior and exterior of storehouses used to store food grains and other agricultural produce.

Termirepel™ lacquer can be directly applied to the applications such as wooden fences, already installed pipes, wires, cables, etc.

The repelling mechanism of the product would debar the worm and other insects that could damage the crops. Thus Termirepel™ is the best protection against these invasive fall armyworms.

The fruitfly Menace

If you have been seeing small flies or gnats in your kitchen, they’re probably fruit flies. These pesky pests can be found throughout the world, in homes, gardens, warehouse, grocery stores, wineries, restaurants, etc. They are readily attached to any number of materials, especially that of moisture. Fruit flies can be a problem year round but are especially common during late summer/fall because they are attracted to ripened or fermenting fruits and vegetables.

But they also will breed in drains, garbage disposals, empty bottles and cans, trash containers, mops and cleaning rags. Hence, they also cause various bacterial diseases.

Fruit flies damage the larger proportion of agricultural production and even to crops grown in the gardens which are susceptible to attack by fruitflies. Commercial producers spend hundreds of millions of dollars on control measures and also suffered production losses.

Tomatoes, melons, mangoes, squash, grapes and other perishable items are often the cause of an infestation. Fruit flies are also attracted to rotting bananas, potatoes, onions and other products.

You see, when the fruit is overripe or starts to go bad it begins to ferment, producing alcohol, which attracts fruit flies. They continue to gobble up the fermenting fruit, and in the process, lay hundreds of eggs which hatch into larvae in mere hours.

Female fruit fly lay their eggs into healthy, ripening fruit on the tree. Fruit flies lay their eggs up to 500 at a time! When the larvae hatch, they feed on the moist surface too.  The entire life cycle from egg to adult takes only about eight to ten days so they proliferate with great rapidity.

Although fruit flies don’t bite humans (they actually don’t have any teeth), many people are allergic to the bacteria they carry, resulting in tiny red bumps on the skin.

Let us look at some evidences of damage done to fruits by these pesky little fruitflies:

Kenyan farmers battle fruit-fly menace as climate warms

by Caroline Wambui | Thomson Reuters Foundation

Sunday, 12 April 2020

As the planet heats up, growing pest numbers threaten Kenya’s lucrative mango, avocado and other fruit crops

KIRWIRE VILLAGE, Kenya, April 12 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Gideon Gitonga inspected his avocado orchard in central Kenya with military precision, revealing that some of the fruit were tinged with a worryingly familiar yellow colour.

Yet again, it was the same culprits attacking his crop on the farm in Kirwire village in Meru County: fruit flies.

“Most of the fruits you see with a ripening colour are not ripe,” he said. “(They) have been punctured by fruit flies and are in the process of rotting and eventually falling off.”

As the planet’s climate heats up, rising temperatures have driven a massive increase in Kenya’s fruit fly population, say agricultural experts.

Farmers in fruit fly-infested areas are losing on average up to half their crops each year to the tiny pests, said Onesmus Mwaura, a research assistant at the Nairobi-based International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE).

Fruit-fly damage costs farmers an estimated 50 billion Kenyan shillings ($472 million) every year, according to the government’s Horticultural Crops Directorate.

Fruit fly costs New Zealand ‘about $1 million’ and could pose risk to trade

Ryan Anderson and Matthew Rosenberg, February 17 2019

The Minister of Biosecurity has put the cost of a single fruit fly at “about $1 million”, and says it could be weeks before the saga wraps up.

On February 14, Devonport on Auckland’s North Shore was put into a fruit and vegetable lockdown after the discovery of a male Queensland fruit fly.

Since then, the Ministry for Primary Industries has allocated 60 staff, up from the original 55, to help with the search and the setting of traps.

The current insecticides are being used to control this menace. However besides being toxic and harmful insecticides kill the species. Repeated exposure to insecticides builds up resistance in insects, until finally the insecticide has little or no effect. Frequent insecticide applications make the problem worse.

C Tech Corporation offers a range of extremely low toxic and extremely low hazard insect aversive repellent, which can be successfully used to keep pesky creatures at bay. TermirepelTM can be easily described as an insect aversive repellent, used against all types of insects and which works on the mechanism of repellency. It means that it does not kill the target insects but only repel them, thus balancing the ecology and helping in maintaining the goal of sustainability.

TermirepelTM masterbatch can be incorporated in agricultural films, mulches, grain bags, protective coverings, etc. during processing. TermirepelTM liquid concentrate which can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio can be applied to fencing and garbage bins.

TermirepelTM lacquer can be applied topically on the applications. It does not volatilize and does not degrade the soil. It is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, EU BPR, NEA, REACH compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Pest management in areas of restaurants

Pest control methods are essential to ensure high standards of food hygiene and good manufacturing practice. In restaurants, rats and mice are one of the most common type of pest you might find.

Rodents are familiar pests in foodservice environments because their three basic needs – water, food and shelter – can all be met in a restaurant setting.  Rodents, like humans, like to be comfortable.  So when the weather gets colder, they want a warm haven.  Since rodents will eat most of the same foods that people do, your restaurant can be just as appealing to a Norway rat as it is to your customers, and with none of the advertisements and marketing!

As scraps from restaurant dumpsters start to dwindle amid widespread closures, the rats are going to do whatever is necessary to find food and survive. Whatever is necessary.

Insects like cockroaches and ants and other pantry pests will feed on the leftover food or even the groceries in the kitchen.

Chinese restaurant in Sligo Town forced to close over ‘rodent infestation’

The food safety inspector found ‘many black elongated rodent droppings’

By William Dunne Digital Journalist

9th April 2020

An Chinese restaurant in Ireland was forced to close after “evidence of rodent infestation” was spotted in a food storage area.

The food safety chiefs issued a closure order for China City in Sligo Town on March 2 after an inspection was carried out.

An inspector for the Food Safety Authority of Ireland made the decision on the basis that there is a “grave and immediate danger to public health” at the premises.

They said while evidence showed a pest control contractor had examined the premises, no previous reports had stated evidence of rodent infestation.

The HSE report said: “There was no adequate procedure to check the premises for evidence of rodents on a day to day basis.

“There was a pest control contractor employed and reports indicate that visits hod been carried out and reports state that there was no evidence of internal or external rodent infestation.”

It added: “On the date of inspection there was evidence of rodent infestation in the first floor store where chest freezers used to store food and some foodstuffs such as flour were stored.

Don’t let your home become their home

Ever wondered how to get rid of the white or lotion coloured creatures, resembling an ant once and for all? Termites are one of the most stubborn pests, that can engage in havoc if left uncontrolled. They have the capacity to nest on nearly anything and almost everything. They commonly feed on wood, leaves or branches of bushes, papers, and many others. These tiny insects are really powerful capable of even destroying the entire constructing!

Termites are not dangerous to people as they are not venomous and they do not usually bite people. However, the cost of termite damage can be extensive and can require a lot of money on the part of the homeowner to repair.

Springtime marks season to watch out for termites

by WGXA Digital News Staff

Saturday, March 14th 2020

MACON, Ga. — With springtime comes more sunshine, flowers, and even some allergies — but seasonal changes can also bring in new pests that may impact the safety and value of your home.

Pest control experts in Middle Georgia say it’s important to watch out for termites, especially during the spring.

“When springtime hits and after all this moisture and humidity, that’s the termite that most people see. If you have them in your home, they’re gonna make an exit hole, and they’re gonna swarm all in your home, so you’re gonna have insects all in your home. That’s the most noticeable. Other things are just the buckling of paint in the walls or sometimes if they’re in the wall, they’ll eat through the sheet rock and they’ll put a piece of mud,” says Ben Dupree, Senior Service Manager for Arrow Exterminators.

Termite damage is not typically covered by insurance and causes millions of dollars in damage every year, according to Arrow Exterminators.

Los Angeles Exterminators Offering Service for Termites

Termites are one of the most destructive pests, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to properties every single year. This is likely because these pests go undetected for quite some time before being discovered. Termite Control Specialists of Los Angeles has announced they are offering services to Los Angeles residents to help prevent and treat termites in the local area.

“Los Angeles has many termite species but the most common are Subterranean Termites and Western Drywood Termites. However, regardless of the termite species on your property, you need to have them taken care of and our termite specialists will be happy to do so,” the business owner stated.

Termirepel™, a product from C Tech Corporation is a completely non-toxic, nonhazardous and environmentally friendly product designed for protection against termites without harming termites and destroying their existence in any way.

Termirepel™ which is an anti-termite has been designed for polymeric applications as well as for natural materials like wood. It combines the best of chemistry and green practices to give an environmentally safe product which keeps the termites away effectively while at the same time guaranteeing safety to the environment, plants, animals and fragile ecosystems. The product triggers a flight or fight response in the insects making them leave the area.

Termirepel™ liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints and can be applied to damaged applications, interior, and exterior of structures, shelves, cupboards, etc. The masterbatch can be incorporated into wires and cables which are used in wiring.

While the product in lacquer form can be used as a topical application that can be applied to furniture, cabinets, bookshelves, etc. The lacquer is compatible with all surfaces.

The product available in the form of wood polish additives can be mixed in wood polish and then used for coating wooden objects and articles to protect it from termite attack.

TermirepelTM insect repellent spray is an easy to use product that can be sprayed by anyone on any surface. It works against termites and a broad spectrum of insects.

Intolerable hospital patients

Going to the hospital is already a stressful situation, and it can be even worse when you find out that you’ve been exposed to bed bugs there. 

A hospital, with the constant movement of patients, employees, staff, and visitors offers many opportunities for the introduction of bed bugs. 

The bedbug can live without blood — its food source — for up to 18 months. “Females can lay up to 4 eggs a day in hidden locations; up to 5 to 10 a week and up to 500 in her lifetime,” according to Eisenberg.

Sighting bedbugs in your hospital facility can affect the reputation and defame a brand.

Dealing with a possible bed bug infestation in a healthcare facility is a delicate situation. It must be made clear that a bed bug problem can happen to anyone and anywhere. Also, rectifying the situation is contingent on the cooperation of all parties. Help your employees, patients, and residents feel comforted by the fact that your healthcare facility has a bed bug control plan in place.

Northern Ireland hospitals record 3,000 incidences of rats, mice and insects


Pest controllers were called out hundreds of times to Northern Ireland hospitals last year due to infestations of rats, mice and bedbugs

By Ralph Hewitt  

December 26 2019

Pest controllers were called out hundreds of times to Northern Ireland hospitals last year due to infestations of rats, mice and bedbugs.

Rodents and insects were spotted in A&E departments, hospital wards and even kitchen and dining areas.

In total more than 3,000 pest sightings were reported at hospital facilities during the last three years.

The Belfast Trust, the biggest health trust, recorded the highest number of pest sightings – 1,381 across the three years.

The South Eastern Trust had a further 588 reports, while the Northern Trust had 524 sightings.

The Western Trust had 429 sightings, while a further 93 reports were recorded at the Southern Trust.

Mom says bedbugs found at Hendersonville hospital

  • Nancy Amons
  • October 22, 2019

HENDERSONVILLE, TN (WSMV) – Bedbugs in a hospital room?

One mother, who just had a baby in a Sumner County hospital, said bedbugs bit her 11-year-old daughter in the hospital’s labor and delivery suite.

The mom said the suite had a couch on it and she said that’s where she saw the bedbugs that she said bit her daughter.

Jamie Turner had just given birth to her third child on Oct. 16 at TriStar Hendersonville Hospital. That’s where she said she took a picture of a bedbug crawling on her 11-year-old daughter. She said the girl was sleeping on the couch in the same room where she had just given birth.

“I thought it was very disgusting to see the bugs there, period,” said Turner. “I just had a baby and that’s one of the things you wouldn’t think of to run across, to have bedbugs in the room with a newborn baby.”

You can see bumps in her 11-year-old daughter’s face. There are marks on her arm too.

“She was complaining about itching,” said Turner.

With bed bugs come a multitude of business challenges, including employees and patients returning to their homes with bed bugs, cost of treatment and the impact bed bugs can have on your brand. Although bed bugs don’t transmit diseases to their victims, they can put patients at risk. The presence or even the suspicion of bed bugs can be very stressful. Bed bugs can also leave an itchy welt on their victims, which may become infected and pose a threat to sensitive patients. 

At C Tech Corporation, we manufacture a product named Termirepel™ which is an anti-termite and insect repellent. The product works on the mechanism of repellence and does not kill the target species but repel them. The product is effective against a broad spectrum of insects and does not cause any harm to humans and other non-target species.

Termirepel™ is available in the form of a spray, liquid concentrate, lacquer, wood polish additive, and masterbatch.

The Termirepel™ insect repellent spray is an easy to use product and compatible with most of the surfaces.

The liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a pre-determined ratio and be applied to the interior and exterior of hospitals, ceilings, storage rooms, doctor’s cabin, pharmacy, washrooms, canteens, etc. to repel bedbugs and other insects from the area required.

Our product in the form of lacquer can be directly applied to the already installed application such as furniture, attics, wooden articles, sewage pipes, wires, cables, etc. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like metal, wood, concrete, polymer, ceramic, etc.

Masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like water pipes, wires, cables, polymeric equipment from hotels, etc. This would result in the final application being insect repellent.

Our product is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, APVMA, NEA, EU BPR compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Hence by using Termirepel™ in the hospitals, you can get rid of the bedbugs and other insects and thereby making a pleasant stay for the guests.

You may also use our CombirepelTM product which is all in one pest repellent effective in repelling rodents, insects, and birds.

Combating the locusts invasion

Locusts are related to grasshoppers and the two insects look similar. However, locust behavior can be something else entirely. Locusts are sometimes solitary insects with lifestyles much like grasshoppers.

But locusts have another behavioral phase called the gregarious phase where they move with other locusts collectively and attacks on crop field.

Locusts are found on all continents except Antarctica and North America. They are most common in Africa and Asia.

Locust swarms devastate crops and cause major agricultural damage and attendant human misery – shortage and starvation. Locust outbreaks have the potential to affect the livelihoods of one in ten people on the planet.

Desert locust plagues may threaten the economic livelihood of one-tenth of the world’s humans.

Desert locusts affect 20 percent of the world’s land surface, scientists say.

Desert locusts live in barren regions that see rain only rarely. They eke out an existence alone when times are tough. When the rains come, they breed like crazy. Then things dry up, and hordes of locusts are forced to gather around diminishing patches of vegetation.

These massive swarms travel as many as 160 kilometers (100 miles) a day.

The recent invasions can give you an idea about the same:

Locust invasion destroys crops in northwest India

A massive locust invasion has destroyed thousands of hectares of crops in northwest India, authorities said, with some experts on Friday terming it the worst such attack in 25 years.

While officials have attempted to tackle the swarm with pesticides, farmers have deployed drums to drive away the insects, with videos showing schoolgirls banging on steel plates — due to local beliefs that loud noise repels locusts.

More than 5,000 hectares (12,000 acres) have been devastated in one district alone, Parmar said.

Invasion of Locusts damages Wafra farms in Kuwait

Swarms of Locust invade Kuwait

KUWAIT CITY, May 1: Despite the attempts of the Public Authority for Agriculture Affairs and Fish Resources (PAAAFR) to fight the swarms of locusts coming from Saudi Arabia towards the Wafra farms, it looks like the yellow locusts have won the battle and caused heavy material losses to many farms, reports Al-Qabas daily. The swarms invaded the farms about three days ago and destroyed tomatoes, cloves and other products and even attempted to invade the ‘hydroponic farms’ causing material losses that could have negative consequences on the vegetables and cattle market due to hike in prices of products.

‘Avoid using pesticides for killing locusts in Jaisalmer’

TNN | May 30, 2019 

JAIPUR: Chief wildlife warden of Rajasthan has written to the state agriculture department to avoid using pesticides for killing locusts in Jaisalmer which in turn is harming the Great Indian Bustard (GIB) which regularly feed on these insects. 

The wildlife department is also taking the help of scientists from Wildlife Institute of India (WII) to find a pesticide which just targets the locusts and doesn’t harm any other animal or bird. 

The letter (a copy of which is with TOI) states that pesticides being sprayed in Jaisalmer district to kill locusts has become a threat to the GIB particularly in Ramdeora, Lokarki and nearby areas since the state bird regularly feeds on this insect thus there is a threat to the health of GIBs which consume them. 

The letter further urges that not only the use of harmful pesticides should be avoided but suitable taxa-specific biopesticides may be utilised for overcoming the locust’s problem without affecting the GIB.

Spraying with solutions of arsenic and overturning the soil can destroy the eggs but this is extremely lethal.

We need a solution that can be both effective against the locusts and also safe for other animals, humans, and the environment.

TermirepelTM can be a boon in this crisis. TermirepelTM is an extremely low toxic and low hazardous insect repellent produced by C Tech Corporation. It can be best described as an insect aversive repellent. It is effective against multiple other insects and pests like thrips, locusts, beetles, bugs, armyworms, etc. It works on the mechanism of repellence and therefore does not kill the target as well as non-target species.

Being low toxic, it does not harm the soil and environment. Termirepel™ can be added to a thin agricultural film to protect plants and other crops.

Our product available in the form of masterbatch can be incorporated into polymeric applications like the tree guards and fences, agricultural films and mulches, irrigation pipes, wires, and cables, etc. to keep these insects away from the trees and crops.

The liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints and be applied on the concrete fence around the gardens, farms, and buildings. The liquid concentrate can be applied to the interior and exterior of storage rooms used to store grains and other agricultural produce.

The product available in the form of lacquer can be used as a direct application and can be applied on the tree trunks, wooden fences around trees, crops, and farms, already installed pipes and polymeric parts from agricultural equipment like motors, tractors, etc.

To keep the locusts at the bay TermirepelTM insect repellent spray can be sprayed.

Protect your car from hungry rats

As a car owner, we are probably aware of the risks such as accidents and other threats. Have we ever thought of the threat and the risk a tiny rodent can pose in our vehicle though they don’t just damage your home when an infestation happens, they can cause serious damage to your vehicle too? The biggest threat to our vehicle concerning rats is the wiring. Thus, sometimes it can be expensive and complicated to repair the wiring that can be damaged by a rat infestation.

Rodents can cause considerable damage in many places, and that includes damage to electrical wires and cables. Rodents use their sharp incisors to gnaw food, they sometimes chew on things like wood or ducts, but they also chew on electric cables and wires.

The fact about all rodents is that they have incisors that never stop growing. They gnaw continuously to keep their choppers in check. Otherwise, their teeth would grow to such an impractical length that they would starve and die.

Rodents build their nests in large electrical appliances, under the bonnet, car engines and chewing on or through insulation and wiring, which can cause the appliance to short circuit, or lead to the risk of fire.

Rats also cause problems by biting the electrical wiring in cars, trucks, and trailers. The damage can sometimes be very difficult to locate, resulting in large repair bills!

A recent news reported for such a damage is as below:

BENGALURU: RODENTS NIBBLE AWAY AT VEHICLE WIRING

TNN | January 14, 2020

BENGALURU: It’s not just traffic that gets motorists exasperated in Bengaluru. Rodent menace is turning out to be a major headache too. A rising number of motorists are thronging workshops with complaints of rats chewing or damaging wiring harness of vehicles, particularly cars.

Many take to online automobile forums to vent their anger over this nuisance. The most affected are those who leave behind their vehicles on trash-strewn streets due to lack of parking space. “I was planning a trip from Bengaluru to Ernakulam but there was some problem with my vehicle’s ignition. On opening the bonnet, I realised rodents had damaged some wiring.

The mechanic, too, said he is getting several such cases,” said Ramesh P, a resident of Indiranagar.

“There are several instances of supply wires to the fuel pump being eaten up by rodents. This problem is rampant across the city and rats often chew essential wiring of vehicles. Engine wires are primarily vulnerable. Sometimes rodents chew insulation covering the wires and this leads to short circuits,” said Vijay Kumar, a mechanic in Kengeri. He claims to be receiving an average of 10 cars with gnawed wires every month. At times, the cost of fixing such damages runs up to Rs 6,000.

Gearing up for the bedbug’s season

Chances are, you or someone you know has had a run-in with bed bugs. It might have happened in a thoroughly clean bedroom. Or maybe it was a hotel room, office or college dorm. 

Bedbugs are small, oval, brownish insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. Adult bedbugs have flat bodies about the size of an apple seed. After feeding, however, their bodies swell and are reddish in color.

Bedbugs do not fly, but they can move quickly over floors, walls, and ceilings. Female bedbugs may lay hundreds of eggs, each of which is about the size of a speck of dust, over a lifetime.

A bedbug infestation can be spotted anywhere, homes, apartments, hotels, hospitals, schools and college campuses, office buildings, retail stores, movie theaters, and even public transportation.

Pest control company warns about bed bugs at hotels

By Ashlei King, KARK

Posted: Dec 19, 2019

LITTLE ROCK, Ar. (KARK) – Between family visits and getaways this holiday season, many may not be aware of the common unwanted travel companion of bed bugs. They’re known for being hitchhikers and can travel on people and their belongings.

“They’re about the size of an apple seed, kind of dark brownish in color,” Hal Johnson, Termnix Branch Manager, said.

Pest management company Terminix recently released the Top 50 Bed Bug invested cities for 2019. Philadelphia, New York, Dallas-Fort Worth, Indianapolis and Cincinnati top the list. Memphis came in at number 17. Little Rock was number 23 and Fort Smith was 30.

Terminix has this advice for those traveling to hotels over the holidays.

‘It’s a nightmare:’ Florida family says son bitten by bedbugs in Bozeman hotel

Posted: July 03, 2019

By Cody Boyer

A family from Florida tells MTN they ran into exactly that here in Bozeman.

Lesli Rubin claims that she, her husband, and her seven-year-old son were in the middle of a trip across the country, enjoying the summer, when they stopped for the night at a Quality Inn and Suites in Bozeman on June 25.

Invading the reader’s hub!!!

Timothy Healy once quoted “To those with ears to hear, Libraries are really noisy places.

On their shelves, we hear the captured voices of centuries-old conversation that makes up our civilization”.

This can best summarize how truly significant libraries are and their influence in catering to the imagination and consciousness of a nation.

We all know that books contribute to civilization, and therefore they must be treasured.  Jorge Luis Borges once said, “I have always imaged that paradise will be a kind of library”.  But imagine a paradise which is repeatedly invaded by unwanted intruders. It is tarnished – the picture-perfect paradise.

That is exactly how a library is when it is intruded by creepy crawly creatures such as termites. Books are a haven for readers- they are also a feast for termites.

Termites are known to feed on dead plant material, generally in form of wood, leaf litter, soil or animal dung. Owing to their great interest in woods many termite species are known to do great damage to unprotected buildings and wooden structures. Moreover, their habit of remaining concealed often results in their presence being undetected until the timbers are severely damaged and exhibit surface changes. Once termites have entered a building, they do not limit themselves to wood; they also damage paper, cloth, carpets and other cellulosic materials.

In April 2011, wood-eating termites were blamed for reportedly consuming more than $220,000 worth of Indian rupee note

Two weeks after its opening in Jan 2012 the Bloy Community library was attacked by termites with all the books completely destroyed resulting in roughly USD 10000 and more costs which would have to be incurred to address the damage done to the library.

While termite damage to books and cupboards was evident it was surprising to note that even concrete walls of the libraries were damaged.  

Further investigation and study revealed that concrete floors and walls develop cracks over time. This leads to holes in the pipes or wires and through the walls where termites can squeeze through.  Termites can tunnel best when the ground around them is moist. Concrete slabs keep some moisture directly underneath the home, which attracts termites. There is an urban legend that says that termites can eat through concrete to get into a home. In fact, termites do not eat concrete. They can squeeze through very tiny cracks, so it sometimes seems like they have eaten their way through.

A Popular Public Library Has Become Infested With Termites

Mar 13, 2018

When it comes to insect infestations, public libraries cannot catch a break these days. There have been numerous news stories in the media telling about various insect pests infesting libraries. For example, a few months ago a well publicized bed bug infestation occurred in a Boston library. As you can understand, many Boston residents were not happy to learn that they could have picked up bed bugs from their library. The library’s infestation of bed bugs has since been eradicated, but residents of Boston remain unsettled over the incident. Unfortunately, the insect pest situation in Boston is not going to improve any time soon, as yet another library has become infested with insects. However, this time the invading insects are termites, not bed bugs.

The Library Director, Jay Stephens, was the first to notice the termite presence, but he could not immediately identify the unusual insects as termites. Initially, Stephens noticed small formations on the ground-floor of the library. At first, Stephens thought that he was looking at ants and their anthills, but the insect’s strange appearance led him to assume that the bugs were termites. Stephens also found several individual termites crawling around certain remote locations around the library. Stephens promptly contacted an expert termite inspector in order to have the insects properly identified. The inspector took one look at the insects and wasted no time telling Stephens that termites were invading his library.

While there is a need to employ methods to address the damage by termites it cannot be overlooked that termites have a vital place in our ecology.

For a steady plant community to arise and persist, a delicate natural balance must exist involving plant growth, plant consumption by animals and insects, and soil development through rock weathering and re-cycling of nutrients from broken-down plants. Termites play an important role in nutrient dynamics by ingesting and redistributing minerals, fatty acids, vitamins, and 20 amino acids. Soils surrounding termite nests also have massive increase in fertility due to the higher nutrient status of materials eroded from mound surfaces. Hence we are required to select and choose for an alternative that is completely suitable for such scenario.

Termirepel™ a product from C Tech Corporation is a completely non-toxic, nonhazardous and environmentally friendly product designed for protection against termites without harming termites and destroying their existence in any way.

Termirepel™ which is an anti-termite has been designed for polymeric applications as well as for natural materials like wood. It combines the best of chemistry and green practices to give an environmentally safe product which keeps the termites away effectively while at the same time guaranteeing safety to the environment, plants, animals and fragile ecosystems. The product triggers a flight or fight response in the insects making them leave the area.

Termirepel™ liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints and can be applied to damaged applications, interior, and exterior of structures, shelves, cupboards, etc. The masterbatch can be incorporated into wires and cables which are used in wiring.

While the product in lacquer form can be used as a topical application that can be applied to furniture, cabinets, bookshelves, etc. The lacquer is compatible with all surfaces.

The product available in the form of wood polish additives can be mixed in wood polish and then used for coating wooden objects and articles to protect it from termite attack.

TermirepelTM insect repellent spray is an easy to use product that can be sprayed by anyone on any surface. It works against termites and a broad spectrum of insects.

Termites have a taste for cash

Money doesn’t grow on trees. It takes many people several decades in order to save up enough money to afford a modest retirement. Having your own stash of cash eaten away by termites would be a disappointing and disheartening experience, to say the least.

Termites will feed on absolutely anything that contains cellulose. In fact, termites will even chomp through materials in order to reach sources of cellulose. Termite colonies can number in the millions, and they are all on a constant search for cellulose. Of course, paper money also contains cellulose, so your cash makes for a great termite snack. Even if you keep your money in the bank, then too it will be likely invaded by the ravenous colonies of cellulose-craving termites. Termite infestations are not just a threat to the structure of your home, they also threaten the money you keep stashed under your mattress. Believe it or not, but termites have managed to access and consume cash that had been kept in personal safes.

Expensive taste: Putri’s cash eaten by termites and posted on Twitter. — The Jakarta Post/ANN

JAKARTA: South Jakarta resident Putri Buddin, 23, has to let millions of rupiah in cash go after the bills she had stored inside a cabinet were damaged and eaten by termites.

Putri shared a photo of the damaged cash on her Twitter account @putribuddim. As of Wednesday afternoon, the post garnered more than 2,600 retweets and 2,700 likes.

She said that she stored the money inside the cabinet last year for her grandmother, who has recently passed away.

Termites ate currency notes worth Rs 3.75 crore

Annapurna Singh New Delhi: August 21, 2013

At a time when Indian banks are facing acute liquidity shortage and a consequent impact on the flow of credit to productive sectors of the economy, a startling revelation has come to light about currency notes worth Rs 3.75 crore being eaten away by termites in the vaults of State Bank of India.

The country’s largest public-sector lender lost the money to white ants at its regional office in the Brabanki district of Uttar Pradesh.

Although the incident dates back to 2010, the information came to light only on Wednesday, when Minister of State for Finance Namo Narain Meena stated it in a written reply to a Lok Sabha question.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has since asked all banks to undertake anti-termite measures.

The RBI in May this year had also directed banks to follow a clean-note policy and issue only clean currency notes to public.

So, what do we do now? Prevent them? But how? 

There is an efficient solution that we at C Tech Corporation, have come up with. We have a unique product known as Termirepel™ which solves all our grievances. So, let us look at some of the salient features of Termirepel™ and how it drives these mischievous termites away from our houses, offices, and workplaces.

Termirepel™ is non-toxic and non-hazardous insect/termite aversive repellent.

Termirepel™ which is an anti-termite has been designed for polymeric applications as well as for natural materials like wood.

Cockroaches – The invincible pest

Cockroaches are notoriously resilient creatures. Capable of living headless for weeks on end, holding their breath for around five to seven minutes and even surviving nuclear radiation, the insects serve as formidable enemies for humans hoping to rid their homes of pesky roach infestations. But these tenacious qualities aren’t the only signs of the animal’s seeming invincibility: A new study published in the journal Scientific Reports suggests cockroaches are becoming increasingly resistant to pesticides, paving the way for a near-future in which it will be “almost impossible” to control the pests with chemicals alone.

How, you might wonder, does a roach become resistant to poison? A single organism — a single roach, a single bacterium — doesn’t become resistant to a chemical. The population does.

In any given population, there’s variation. Some individuals may have an inborn resistance to a chemical while others do not. When a pest population is treated with that chemical, the ones without the resistance die and the ones with it live. The survivors pass down their resistance genes to the next generation. And then suddenly, you end up with a population of individuals mostly resistant to that chemical.

Numerous articles and studies have been published in various journals and newspapers. One of them is as below:

Cockroaches inherit pesticide resistance making them even harder to kill

By Kay Vandette

Earth.com staff writer

03-07-2019

Cockroaches have a reputation of being one of the hardiest pests on Earth, and you’ve probably heard that the insects could survive a nuclear war. 

What or will not kill a cockroach has become the source of many old wives tales and studies have even shown that a roach can survive for weeks in a sealed environment without its head. 

Cockroaches are carriers of disease and can contaminate homes and food with dangerous bacteria like E. Coli. This makes the cockroach more than a nuisance and a threat to human health. 

New research has now found that some types of cockroaches are developing a resistance to insecticides making them even more difficult to kill.

Researchers from Purdue University examined German cockroaches (Blattella germanica L.), which are one of the most common cockroaches found worldwide. Of all the roach species, Blattella germanica L. can lay more eggs in its lifetime with a female producing 30 to 50 eggs at a time. 

Thus, insecticides can be proving to be ineffective we need a solution that is effective, eco- friendly and easy to use.

The unique product Termirepel™ manufactured by C Tech Corporation is an anti-insect aversive which repels insects.

Termirepel™ works on the mechanism of repellency. It temporarily inhibits the mating cycle of the insects. The product impairs the ability of the insects to reproduce, that is the insects will not lay eggs or the laid eggs will be infertile. The product causes feeding disruption in an insect by triggering an unpleasant reaction within the insect which might try to feed on the application.

The product temporarily blocks the reproduction system of the insects by hindering the release of the vital hormones for growth.

Termirepel™ is an extremely low concern, low toxic, nonhazardous, non-carcinogenic and non-mutagenic insect aversive. It does not kill or cause harm to insects as well as to the environment which indirectly helps to maintain the ecological balance.

Termirepel™ is available in the form of the masterbatch, which can be incorporated into the polymeric applications.

The product available in the form of liquid concentrate can be mixed in paints in a predetermined ratio and be applied to the fences in the garden to keep the pest away from these places.

Our product in the lacquer form can be applied topically to the applications. The lacquer is compatible with most of the surfaces like wood, concrete, metal, polymer, ceramic, etc.

TermirepelTM insect repellent spray is an easy to use product specially designed for residential use.

Termirepel™ is thermally stable and does not degrade on exposure to heat and sunlight. It does not kill or harm the insect but repels them. It does not volatilize and does not degrade the soil. It is RoHS, RoHS2, RoHS3, REACH, APVMA, NEA compliant and FIFRA exempted.

Bedbugs- an unwelcomed air passenger

We have heard a number of times that there is bedbug infestation in house, hotels, ships, railways, etc. But bedbugs in flights occurred recently- surprised! But it’s true that the bedbugs have been reported in planes and they are flying in first class.

One more new thing that we need to worry about while traveling in the plane & i.e. bedbugs proved that humans cannot defeat them in the sky as well. Bedbug on airplanes doesn’t get the same media attention as bedbugs in hotels, hospitals, and railways.

It’s not just a plane you have to worry about, bedbugs found in every transport system nowadays. Whenever you are traveling to the plane and spot a bedbug around you, give an instant alert to flight attendants so that they could take possible action against bedbugs. Passengers make sure that they should not bring bedbugs to their homes as it may be a great threat to their homes.

Bedbugs can make their own way by scrawling one passenger luggage to others. Then bedbugs slowly scrawl out and hide in the corners of the seat and enjoy a free inflight meal of your sweet blood in the air. So before seating to plane a proper visual inspection must be done and if you find tiny red and a black spot at seat be sure of bedbug waiting to welcome you on board.

Here are some news articles reported for bedbugs’ infestation in the plane.

Shocking: Air Transat Flight Evacuated As Insects Fall From Above

By Joanna Bailey June 28, 2019

An Air Transat plane had to cancel its journey between London and Vancouver due to an insect infestation. Passengers reported bugs an inch long were falling from overhead lockers as they prepared to take off. As a result, the trip was delayed 24 hours so that the aircraft could be fumigated.

Passengers were apparently left ‘screaming in terror’ on an Air Transat flight from Gatwick this week, as cockroach like bugs tumbled onto their heads. Apparently falling from overhead lockers, the ‘brown beetles with wings’ were seen scurrying along the aisle as flight attendants attempted to squash them.

What happened?

Air Transat flight TS177 was due to depart from London Gatwick on Wednesday 26th June, heading to Vancouver in Canada. Passengers boarded the Airbus A330, registered C-GGTS, on time and were taking their seats when bugs began falling from overhead lockers onto their heads and laps. A passenger, Jenna Sullivan, told the Mail about her experience

British Airways had to ground a jet after the cabin crew refused to fly on it due to a bedbug infestation.

They walked out minutes before take-off and were beyond their working hours when a replacement plane was found.

The flight to Ghana eventually left Heathrow four hours late.

It is the latest bedbug embarrassment to hit BA in recent months — amid protests that cheap cleaning contractors are not doing a proper job preparing jets for flights.

BA has been battling to restore its reputation after being accused of poor customer service and cutting perks.

A BA source said: “The cabin crew saw bedbugs crawling over the seats — visible to the naked eye.

“They said it was unacceptable to work on that aircraft.”

The Sun can also reveal crew frequently complain of bedbugs on the route to Las Vegas.

BA said it immediately took its jet out of service once the problem was raised.
