Hi Everyone,
We are constructing few buildings and a hotel in a remote area and we are facing lots of problems with reptiles (Snakes & Scorpions)
We did pest control but still we are facing problems, these uninvited guest entering our construction areas and we are always having a threat, Im afraid of my workforce as hospitals are far from our construction site, the closest one is at 42 Kms..
Any suggestions please?

Hello Mohammed
One of the site I was experienced the same issue and no pest control helped there. The day they do pest control, its more on the upcoming days and moreover creating huge issues in the labour colony or the nearby areas.
Do you have trained first aider on site?
Do you have ant venom for snake bite/insect bite in your camp/site???
Try to keep Snake Catcher (You can get to buy online , search this in google, a kind of stick) at locations where u are expecting snakes.
Give first aid training to employees, what to do in case of insect bites and snake bites.
Place boards cautioning people to take extra care while on the areas where the chances of such snakes/insets can be found.
Then finally you may try to contact another pest control team, may be with different chemical, try to do it once again.
Hope this helps.
Awaiting to hear the views of others please...
