Pest control




The Ship Sanitation Certification regime is aimed at controlling the international spread of human diseases by controlling disease bearing insects that could potentially be carried on a ship. This is achieved by inspecting for and controlling bed bugs and cockroaches on board sea faring vessels originating and arriving at ports in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

Green Buildings is authorized by the UAE government to issue Ship Sanitation Control Certificate in accordance with International Health Regulations. A Ship Sanitation Certificate is valid for a period of six months from the date of issue. Our trained staff has been treating and issuing certificates for the last several years.


There are numerous types of insects and rodents that infest homes and businesses in Abu Dhabi. This region, with its warm and humid climate, naturally attracts pests. The staff at Morning Star and our sister concern, Green Buildings, have many years experience in pest control. Our staff will work with you to tailor the most effective service for you and your family or company. We will devise our plan based on the type of insect and the severity of the infestation.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small reddish or brown wingless insects. Adults can grow to the size of an apple seed. Bed bugs are nocturnal in nature and live on human blood. They reproduce quickly and have a life span of over 300 days in optimal temperature and food. Bed bugs are a growing menace the world over. They often enter your home through your luggage if you have been traveling and staying in hotels. Bed bugs spread from guest to guest in hotels, infesting the bedding and other areas of each room. Then they climb aboard your luggage where they hide until you arrive home from your travels. When you bring your luggage inside your home, these insects quickly disembark and make their way into your bedding, furniture, wallpaper, and anywhere else they can find a snug fit for their flat bodies and easy access to human blood.

Morning Star along with Green Building's staff uses insecticides to control bed bugs in your homes. Occupants must stay out of the house for twelve to twenty four hours after treatment.


Roaches are a health hazard, carrying bacteria on their bodies that are transmitted to men. The main diseases transmitted are different forms of gastroenteritis including food poisoning, dysentery, and diarrhea. Roaches are very adaptable insect, surviving where other insects would be extinct. Because of their adaptable natures they are difficult to control. Cockroaches are attracted to warm, moist environments. They stay in secluded areas under refrigerators, stoves, kitchen cabinets, and in crevices between baseboards and floors or cabinets and walls.

Our staff will use Abu Dhabi municipality approved chemical pesticides or gel treatments to remove cockroaches from hiding places or to eliminate small populations.
