The Science of Life Studies 24/7 (SOLS 24/7) was founded in 2000 by Teacher Raj Ridvan Singh. Through various education and social empowerment programs, SOLS 24/7 works unconditionally towards transforming underserved communities to develop their true potential and break the cycle of poverty. Using revolutionary and custom-designed models – Science of Languages, Science of Technology and Science of Life – their organization provides free education and social empowerment programs to underserved communities in Malaysia.

Hostel of SOLS 24/7

In late November 2019, the SOLS 24/7 encountered bedbug problem at the boys’, girls’ and teachers’ dormitories. Ridpest seized this opportunity to help eliminate this pest as part of their social corporate responsibility because they believe their responsibilities goes beyond just making profit to include protecting and improving society’s welfare.

Below are some pictures of the situation encountered by SOLS 24/7

Mr. Saiful and Mr. Hilal entomologist from BASF, were also on the site to help along in making inspections on the bedbugs. We also used a new formulation named Seclira SG in this procedure to get rid of the bedbugs’ infestation which is non-staining, odorless and harmless but controls a broad spectrum of pests including ants, cockroaches, wasps, bedbugs, mosquitoes, and other crawling insects.

As of to date, the teacher’s dormitories were free from bedbugs infestation and the infestations at the boys’ and girls’ dormitories were reduced. Thus, helping SOLS 24/7 were indeed rewarding as the quality of life of the students and teacher were improved tremendously especially knowing well enough they now have a good slumber and living in a pest-free environment.
