Fumigation is a method of pest control that fills the entire area with gaseous pesticides (fumigants) to suffocate or poison the pests within the fumigated area. Fumigation can be used to treat entire buildings, including the internal structure such as wood beams. Especially difficult or entrenched pests can be dealt with in their entirety with this method.
Only certified professionals should be used when fumigating your home or business.
Fumigation is a powerful method of controlling stored product pests such as weevils, moths, beetles, booklice, mites and mealworm. Fumigation can be used in manufacturing premises, warehousing, farms and shipping/cargo operations.
Containers - Fumigation of containers can be done via tarped fumigation. The container is covered with a tarp which is then sealed around the edges. If the container is tested to be gas-tight then fumigation can take place without a tarp.
Silo Fumigation - Large amount of grain products can be treated when stored in a silo. Due to the large amount of product being fumigated at once the cost is lower than alternative options. Pressure testing of the silo is required in order to ensure proper fumigation takes place.
