Pests can be more than just a nuisance onboard vessel. They spread diseases and pose a risk to seafarers’ health and affect the operation of ships.
The inherent nature of ships allows pests to thrive and be transported from one country to another, thus facilitate the spread of pest-related illnesses and diseases.
HEYMONSTER Pest Control can take care of your vessel pest control needs, whether if your ship is in anchorages of Singapore or berthed in a shipyard.

Rodents like sewer rats (Rattus norvegicus) or roof rats (Rattus rattus spp.) could cause plague, murine typhus, rat-bite fever and etc.
Subterranean termites could destroy your expensive marine decks, cargoes and wooden pallets, thereby costing you economic losses.

How do pests find their way into vessels?
Pests have various means of infiltrating vessels, utilizing clever strategies to gain access. They often hitch a ride on luggage, infested cargoes, livestock, food supplies, birds, and even humans. These unwanted stowaways exploit the opportunities presented by maritime transportation, posing a risk to the vessel's integrity and the well-being of its occupants.
It is crucial to implement effective pest control measures to prevent the entry and spread of pests onboard ships, safeguarding both the vessel and its cargo.
