Fumigation gets them all!

Do we service
your area?

If you have seen a home or building wrapped in tarps, you’ve seen a fumigation in progress. Fumigation is the process that eliminates insects from a structure with the use of a fumigant.

The fumigant is used because between the exterior and interior of your home or business lies a no man’s land inaccessible to even the professional termite inspector. These spaces however are not inaccessible to drywood termites and beetles, which feed there, in most cases, undetected. Spot treatments often miss them, giving you a false sense of security and wasting your money.

A complete treatment with a fumigant reaches into every corner of the structure including inaccessible areas, and kills every drywood termite, even those that were never located.

The Process

Before the fumigant is introduced, the structure is completely sealed to contain the fumigant in the building so it can penetrate wood members thoroughly and eliminate the pests.

The average home will usually be covered with tarpaulins, commonly called “tarps”. The building will remain sealed for approximately 24 hours, depending upon the specifics of the individual job.

Warning signs are posted around the building notifying people that the property is being fumigated, and to keep out.

After the tarp is removed, a professional fumigator will aerate the structure for 24 hours by opening the doors and windows. The fumigator is required to test the structure to make sure all of the fumigant is removed from the building.
