PEST CONTROL FOR HEALTHIER LIVING HAS BEEN OUR LEITMOTIF SINCE 1953. WE ARE YOUR ONE-STOP SERVICE PROVIDER WITH SOLUTIONS TO YOUR PEST PROBLEMS.
You may be a housewife, own a factory or manage a business – but face a common enemy; pests. The range of diseases carried by household and industrial pests and their scope for destruction is astounding. Not recognising or treating this menace can be a health hazard for your family or your goods. Our job is to redress the health and safety balance in your favour.
Who are we? We bear the name of our founder Dr. A. Sarup, who is regarded as the pioneer of the pest control industry in India. Starting off in 1953 as Pest Control Corporation (PCC) in Calcutta, that company evolved into Dr. Sarup’s Pest Control Pvt. Ltd. (DSPC) in 1968, with branches all around India. Our legacy dates over 60 years, when we introduced an array of services like the control of general insect pests, pre and post-construction termites, rodents, control of beehives and wasp nests, snakes, mosquitoes and flies in integrated townships, birds at airports and factories, disinfestation of homes, hospitals, aircraft and trains, fumigation of ships and containers, and control of pests in standing crops.
Dr. Sarup was the veritable Pied Piper; he took up the seemingly impossible task of getting rid of flies in Calcutta in 1961-63 to control the epidemic of cholera, and succeeded. Just as back then, no matter what the challenge, we have solutions for your pest problems with our expertise and long experience.
Carpenter ants move into our homes during monsoon and summer. Ants are a nuisance to many people and can cause real damage to various household accessories and even food materials. Red Weaver Ants are common in gardens and parks in India. Red Ants have a very painful bite, which is often worsened by chemicals that they emit when aggravated.
Insects like bees, wasps, hornets and scorpions belong to the family of stinging pests. The sting of bees, wasps and hornets are not only painful but also result in allergic reactions. In extreme cases it might also hamper breathing while others may experience numbness and convulsion
This is a service that encompasses a panoply of pest management treatments in a household.
Pests in a house include cockroaches, lizards, spiders, weevils, silverfish and ants.
This service, therefore, deals with common crawling insects in the house.
The method of treatment usually involves the use of gel based targeted baits/chemicals in cupboards and targeted spray chemicals in drains.
Your kitchen and wardrobes do not need to be emptied for this service unless the supervision finds it necessary.
In India rodent control generally targets rats and mice.
Once the rat menace is identified different methods in combination are put into practice to reduce or eliminate the menace depending on the size of the population and location of the infestation. The methods employed are:
Mechanical methods: traps, cages and ultrasonic repellents
Chemical methods: baits and rodenticides.
Our professional operators will locate the points of entry, the source of food and harbourage and will then select the best and safest means possible to prevent further infiltration and infestation.
Outdoor populations too can be controlled so that their adverse impact on human health and economic activity is eliminated.
Controlling the growth of weeds in a garden or agricultural environment is another aspect of pest control.
Using chemical and physical methods the objective is to stop weeds from reaching a mature stage growth. Weeds at this level get competitive for nutrients, space, light and water with agricultural crops or ornamental plants.
Different Strategies are employed to clear the weeds. Physical or mechanical methods can be practiced by ploughing, hoeing, plucking and the use of tractors.
Chemical methods involve the use of herbicides. These herbicides selectively kill specific targets while leaving the cultivated crop relatively unharmed. Some of these herbicides work by interfering with the growth of the weed and often contain plant hormones.
Herbicides are commonly classified as:
Our trained technicians will determine the best options after assessing the problem.
This bouquet of services are for pest management in an industrial environment.
The pests vary in different environs.
If the place of service is a food factory then cockroaches, ants, lizards, spiders and rodents will be the prevalent pests. Depending on the size and exigencies of the area gel, herbal, spray and targeted baits will be applied.
Granaries and food silos may have pests like weevils, crawling insects and rodents causing a nuisance. For this our treatment for crawling insects, rodent control and fumigation would be most appropriate.
Fumigation is another aspect of pest control where a fumigant or a toxic gas is used to eliminate pests in a sealed environment. It is method most commonly employed for controlling pests in buildings in soil, grain and during the import and export of goods to prevent transmigration of pests.
Fumigation involves the following steps:
Area is covered and sealed
The fumigant is released into the given space.
The area is then sealed for a set period to allow the fumigant to percolate through the spaces thus killing the pests. This wait could last a few days until it is safe to open the area.
The sealed environment is then opened for aeration so that it becomes safe for humans to enter.
As fumigation is a highly toxic process, the service provider must be properly certified and the operator sufficiently trained to provide a safe and effective treatment.
There are about 3,400 species of snakes. Snakes can be found on every continent except Antarctica, on small islands, in the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
Through most of the species are non venomous yet all snakes should be treated with caution. It is difficult to find a snake once it has entered the house.
There are 2 methods to control the entry of snakes into the premises:
Our skilled operators will assess the site for places of harborage, food and water. It is important to assess the immediate surrounding area to identify the source of infestation as snakes only stray into the premises looking for food and water.
The use of baits, traps and repellents require professional skills ensure the safety of people and pets.
Mosquito Control implies the management of mosquitoes in a given environment to reduce their adverse impact on human health. Mosquito Control is a vital public and private health practice.
Mosquito Control addresses three problems:
The process of control involves the use of mechanical, chemical and biological methods.
Monitoring mosquito populations is essential for effectively assessing and controlling the problem in the most optimum manner.
MOSQUITO CONTROL SERVICE
[A] Structural Spray
Chemical will be sprayed to wall surfaces and all internal areas, including seating areas of works stations. The spray works to wall surface will ensure the mosquitoes resting on wall surface will be targeted and killed.
[B] Micronning works to internal areas.
As an alternative chemical will be sprayed to internal areas using powered micronning sprayers which dispenses chemical in free air at less than 3 – 4 microns.
This ensures the adult mosquitoes are killed which are either resting, on wall surface or are in flight.
This process is also used inside AHU, SHAFTS, DUCTS apart from being in use to internal areas.
[A] Structural Perimeter Spray
Chemical will be sprayed to the wall of external areas. This external perimeter spray ensures better management of mosquitoes to the external areas thus ensuring reduced mosquito presence internally.
[B] Fogging to external areas
Fogging can be implemented to the external areas provided mosquito pressure is recorded at a high form the external areas. Fogging can be done as a quick management of adult mosquitoes to the external areas apart from implementing the spray works.
[C] Larviciding to external areas
The key to mosquito management is management of mosquito breeding, of which larviciding is the best process to be adopted. All water collection areas will be effectively treated using larvicides, which will be done by spray process.
The professional approach to mosquito control ensures a problem-free environment without overexposure to toxic chemicals. Our operators will assess the infestation and recommend the best course of treatment.
Damage Caused by Termites
The damage caused by termites to domestic and commercial buildings, books, paper, agricultural crops and trees etc. runs into crores of Rupees annually in India. Thus it is not surprising that more and more people want to know something about termites and their control.
Termites even penetrate concrete
It has been found that termites are able to dissolve lime mortar by means of acidulous secretion from their frontal glands, and by such means are able to penetrate into buildings.
Furthermore, termites have found ways to flourish even in the most modern steel structures. They have even penetrated bank vaults and safe deposit boxes to feed on cash and stock certificates. Termites penetrate through minute cracks to get at anything containing cellulose - their food. Modern conveniences, such as air conditioning, are added incentives for termites to reproduce at a record rate, and they are now found almost as frequently in urban skyscrapers as in rural structures.
Low cost and added value
Pre-construction soil treatment is more economical than treatment carried out in a completed building. Not only costly damage is done by termites but the treatment required to eradicate this menace in a completed building is a lengthy and expensive process. Moreover, by the very nature of its operation, Pre-construction soil treatment is more thorough. These advantages mean less worry, better termite control and long-term saving.
Our Pre-construction Soil Treatment is guaranteed for ten years. If any infestation occurs within the ten year period, we re-treat the building free of cost. Experience has shown that the effectiveness of the treatment far outlasts the guaranteed period.
Termite control is both an entomological and an engineering problem. The methods of termite control in standing structures are constantly being improved by research, as a result of which more powerful insecticides and improved techniques are being discovered. We keep abreast of these development and provide control by modern scientific methods which depend on creating a chemical barrier, lethal to white ants around the affected parts of a building or preferably around the whole building.
Termites control attack a building from under its floor, from outside, or from both, since it is very difficult to locate their colonies, any treatment to safeguard a building should be such that it destroys not only the colonies that exist in the building but also prevents future re-infestation through the foundations. This is achieved by four technical operations, as illustrated. Four steps towards complete eradication
1. Structural Alteration
This includes any structural operation which renders a structure less susceptible to termite attack or which renders the immediate surroundings of a structure less favourable for termites
2. Soil Treatment
Chemicals are applied to the soil immediately adjacent to or under a structure for the purpose of eliminating existing infestations and creating an insecticidal barrier which white ants cannot cross.
3. Foundation Treatment
Generally termites have access to the wooden members of a structure through the foundations and walls. These operations involve the application of chemicals to any type of foundation for the purpose of preventing access of termites to structural wood.
4. Wood Treatment
Chemicals are applied to wooden members of the structures to render them resistant to termite attack or eliminate existing infestations.
Complete extermination of termites is both laborious and expensive as it calls for carrying out all the four steps illustrated above. To meet the convenience of our customers, we have divided our treatment into three different categories.
Under this scheme which carries a guarantee period of five years, all the four technical operations are carried out. Our service, however, does not end with the initial treatment. Every six months, we carry out a thorough inspection of the building, and give any further treatment if and where found necessary. This service is given free of charge for five years. Although the guaranteed period under this scheme is five years, our experience has shown that the period of freedom from termites far outlasts the guaranteed period. Old Buildings treated by us have remained free from termites even after 40 years.
Woodwork Protection and General Suppression
Treatment under this scheme consists of:
While the above measures are not sufficient for complete extermination of termites, they ensure (a) Suppression of their emergence on walls and ceilings and (b) Complete stoppage of further damage to the woodwork. However, to be certain that no fresh infestation occurs, we inspect the premises under contract once a month at a nominal charge.
Under this scheme we treat only the points which are visibly attacked by termites. It is obvious, however, that this is only a stop-gap measure. Whilst the cost is exceedingly low, we give no guarantee regarding re-infestation in spots other than those treated by us. For service under this scheme, we enter into annual contracts only. Whilst the above covers white ant control on a general basis, we shall be pleased to forward our specific recommendations after surveying the premises.
Pre-construction soil treatment prevents termite attack
Most effective steps against termite attack to a building can be taken at the time of its construction by treating the soil with insecticides. Such measures are especially desirable in areas infested with termites.
Laying of sanitary lines, water pipes, underground cables etc. and making holes in the walls and floors for the above purposes, create vulnerable points facilitating entry of termites. The treated surfaces may also be disturbed thus weakening the chemical barrier. Therefore, it is very important that all such places are thoroughly treated or re-treated with chemicals.
Timed to fit your schedule
With modern equipment and skilled personnel, we time our treatment to fit your building schedule and through careful co-ordination of our work with that of the architects, termite control can be achieved without the slightest delay in construction.
Birds esp. pigeons are a menace in offices, residences, malls, factories, and places of worship. Window sills are commonly used by pigeons for the purpose of overnight roosting and in some cases are also used as a vantage point to exploit a food source during the day. Whilst they may seem fairly harmless, pigeons can be extreme pests. They can be dangerous as their droppings carry diseases such as Ornithosis (a viral disease that is similar to "flu") and Salmonella bacteria, and affect the aesthetics of a building. In addition to this, a pigeon's faeces also contains uric acid which is highly corrosive and can seriously deface and damage any structure over a period of time. Perching and roosting on window sills can often cause both noise-related and soiling problems for property owners. Debris from flocks of problem pigeons often build up, blocking gutters and drains which can cause flooding and roof damage. Nesting materials can cause failure in machinery and particularly affect rooftop air-conditioningunits. Pigeon proofing your building does not have to be a complicated task. lt's also far more humane than many people realize.
There are three common ways in which we can deter pigeons from nesting and roosting: by using Pigeon Netting, Pigeon Spikes System or Pigeon Wire System. The Pigeon Netting System When properly installed the net keeps pigeons away. It's a section of fine netting that is positioned by way of raised support struts.
The Pigeon Spikes System
Pigeon Spikes are a humane method of preventing the birds from landing.
The Pigeon Wire System
The Pigeon Wire System is a cost-effective, extremely versatile and totally humane pigeon deterrent system.
The most optimal method will be selected by our trained survey team for your property.

Simultaneously, he studied the cork industry in Portugal and was a pioneer in setting up a factory at Powai, Bombay in 1948 under the name of Indian Cork Mills.
In 1952, Dr. Sarup set up the first fumigatorium chamber at Sewri, Bombay. Then in 1953. Dr. Sarup founded Pest Control Corporation (PCC) in Calcutta. Within four years, he opened branches in New Delhi, Bombay, Madras, Hyderabad and Jamshedpur. He visited England and kept in close contact with Rentokil Laboratories, the famous and oldest pest control organization in the world. Dr. Sarup was the only Indian to have presented a paper on Termites and their Control in Structures at the UNESCO Symposium in 1960 on Termites in Humid Tropics. In 1967 he became a co-founder of the Indian Pest Control Association.
In 1968, PCC evolved into Dr. Sarup's Pest Control Pvt. Ltd. (DSPC). In 1970s, with the help of his wife Mrs. Leela Sarup whom he had trained in pest control, he set up 23 branches in India.
Dr. Sarup was an advisor for Quality Control to the Ministry of Commerce and Industries, and he was a Committee Member of the Indian Standards Institution and the Directorate of Plant Protection, Quarantine and Storage.
Dr. Sarup is known as the Father of Pest Control in India as he was the pioneer of the pest control industry. He worked in his laboratory till he breathed his last on 2nd January, 1999. Dr. Sarup was a self-made man and was full of new ideas all his life. Today, his wife Mrs. Leela Sarup carries his torch with the same zeal.
