Protecting Your Assets: Managing Termite Infestations in Banks

Termite infestations in banks can cause significant damage to the structure of the building as well as the financial records and currency stored inside. Termites are known to feed on cellulose-based materials, which include paper-based currency notes. Termites can cause damage to currency notes by chewing through the paper fibers and weakening the structure of the note. Over time, this can lead to the currency becoming brittle and eventually falling apart.

Managing termite infestations in banks requires a comprehensive approach that includes prevention, detection, and proper treatment.

Prevention measures involve ensuring that the bank building is constructed using termite-resistant materials and implementing regular inspections to identify any potential entry points for termites. Any potential entry points, such as cracks in the foundation or walls, should be sealed to prevent termites from gaining access to the building.

Detection measures include regular inspections by a pest control professional to identify any signs of termite activity, such as mud tubes, termite wings, or damage to wooden structures. Early detection can help to minimize the extent of the infestation and prevent further damage.

Treatment measures typically involve the use of chemical or non-chemical methods to eliminate the termite colony. We will be talking about one effective remedy in this blog.

It is important for banks to work closely with a licensed and experienced pest control professional to develop and implement an effective termite management plan. Regular inspections and preventative measures can help to minimize the risk of termite infestations and protect the bank’s financial assets and infrastructure.

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.

Regular maintenance of the building can help prevent termite infestations by removing potential food and water sources for the pests. Ensure that there are no leaks or moisture issues, and remove any wood debris or cellulose-based materials from around the building.

But as we all know, prevention is better than the cure. So then what’s the solution? How you can save your investment?

Well, to deal with the menace caused by these tiny critters we at C Tech Corporation have come up with an EU-BPR-approved, eco-friendly and non-hazardous solution.

When Pests Invade: The Serious Threat of Infestations in Hospital

Pest infestation in hospitals is a serious issue that can compromise the health and safety of patients, staff, and visitors. Pests such as rodents, insects, and birds can carry diseases and contaminate surfaces and equipment, which can lead to the spread of infections.

Hospitals should have a pest control program in place to prevent and manage infestations. This program should include regular inspections, monitoring, and sanitation practices to eliminate pest habitats and food sources. In addition, hospitals should work with licensed pest control professionals who can use safe and effective methods to control pests while minimizing the risks to patients and staff.

Preventative measures that hospitals can take to reduce the risk of pest infestation include:

  1. Maintaining a clean and sanitary environment, including regular cleaning and disinfection of surfaces and equipment.
  2. Properly storing and disposing of food and waste.
  3. Sealing cracks and gaps in walls, floors, and ceilings to prevent pests from entering.
  4. Using screens on windows and doors to keep out flying insects.
  5. Proper measures to prevent bird infestation
Rats Nibble At Patients At Bengal Govt Hospital, Video Goes Viral

16th February, 2023

In the viral video, rats can be seen nibbling at patients lying on the floor of a Government-run hospital in West Bengal’s Malda.

The shocking reality of West Bengal’s healthcare came to light in a video accessed by Republic Bangla. In the video, rats can be seen nibbling at patients lying on the floor of a Government-run hospital. Patients can be seen on the floor of the Malda hospital and rats seem to have infested the entire ward. The video is believed to be from Wednesday.

On being questioned about the presence of rats at the hospital, superintendent Puranjay Saha told Republic Bangla that rats are going to be everywhere. When reporters said rats are riding up patients, he said: “I will ask the assistant super and see what can be done. We do run a pest control programme. I have to ask around.” He added that the hospital has taken measures to control rodents and pests.

Cockroach found in 4-year-old patient’s meal at AIIMS, hospital initiates probe

Published on Nov 15, 2022

The alleged incident occurred on Sunday, after the child, who suffers from Hirschsprung disease — a condition that affects the large intestine and causes problems with passing stool — was served a meal after he was operated upon

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has found itself in the middle of another controversy involving the quality of meals being served at the institute after the family of a four-year-old patient allegedly found a cockroach in a meal served to the child.

The alleged incident occurred on Sunday, after the child, who suffers from Hirschsprung disease — a condition that affects the large intestine and causes problems with passing stool — was served a meal after he was operated upon.

“After the surgery, the doctors told us to give him only semi-solid food. So I asked the staff to give me a bowl of dal. When I gave him the first bite, I found parts of a dead cockroach in it. I made my son spit out the bite immediately,” said the child’s mother, a Noida resident who wished to remain anonymous.

“I am grateful to the doctors here because they have been there for us for the last two years, but food safety is a big concern. I panicked and alerted the hospital authorities and they assured me that they will take the strictest action in the case,” the mother said.

Responding to allegations, the AIIMS administration said, “Hospital authorities have taken a serious note of the incident and are investigating the matter.”

This is not the first time that there has been a complaint about the sub-standard quality of food being served at AIIMS.

Between August and September, two separate incidents occurred where poor quality of food was served in the resident doctors’ canteens of the institute. After complaints were circulated on social media, teams from the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) conducted inspections and several samples failed the safety test.

Following the FSSAI tests, the AIIMS administration had directed the closure of a resident doctors’ hostel mess and a cafeteria.

In the event of a pest infestation, hospitals should take immediate action to address the problem. Commonly used pest control measures may include using traps, baits, or insecticides to control the pests, as well as implementing structural modifications to prevent future infestations. But how viable are they? And more importantly how safe are they?

It is important for hospitals to take pest infestations seriously and to have a plan in place to prevent and address them. By following best practices for pest control and working with licensed professionals, hospitals can ensure a safe and healthy environment for patients, staff, and visitors.

Bed bugs bill prevents landlords from renting infested units

Posted: Feb 7, 2023

HONOLULU (KHON2) — Beg bug infestations in the islands are a problem more common than you think. Now, a lawmaker wants to make it illegal for a landlord to rent a property known to have the pests.

They are tiny, flat, blood sucking parasites that often hide in mattresses, biting and feeding on their unsuspecting hosts while they’re asleep at night.

“The goal is that neither tenants nor landlords should knowingly rent a place that has bedbugs in it before they eradicate them,” Rhoads explained.

And, he said tenants should also be obligated to avoid introducing them to rental units and have to let their landlord know if they are experiencing them.

Montalbo said bed begs are hitchhikers. His advice to prevent bringing them home: check mattresses when you travel, inspect your suitcases and bags before you get home, and thoroughly inspect any second hand furniture you purchase before moving it into your house.

Bedbug infestations can be a major problem, causing discomfort, frustration, and financial strain. By taking preventative measures and taking immediate action if an infestation is suspected, you can protect your home from bedbugs and enjoy a comfortable, bedbug-free living environment.

C Tech Corporation has found an eco-friendly solution for it. The product is called TermirepelTM. The company believes to provide uncompromising quality products to customers and this product is an excellent insect repellent that is extremely low toxic, and extremely low hazardous in nature.

TermirepelTM is made with a mechanism such that, the product temporarily blocks the mating cycle of these insects and causes feeding disruption by creating discomfort within the insects. The product weakens the ability of insects to reproduce which means, female insects will not lay eggs and laid eggs will be infertile. The product disturbs the release of vital hormones which are essential for insects to grow. 

TermirepelTM is available in various forms such as masterbatch, paint additives, wood polish furniture, lacquer, and spray.

The wood polish additive can be applied over the furniture or wooden article to prevent infestation. The wood polish additive needs to be mixed with regular wood polish and then used. The lacquer can be directly applied on wooden surfaces such as attics, wooden fences, cabinets, and other furniture, etc. to protect it from insect damage. The spray can be used on wooden articles and furniture and mattresses to repel bedbugs and other insects.

The liquid concentrate can be diluted with paints and applied to the interiors and exteriors of hotels, building structures, outhouses, restaurants, etc. to repel insects from the areas required. In order to maintain the ecosystem, this product will keep the insects away rather than killing them.
