Fumigation Gets Them All
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 interior and exterior of your home or business lies a no man’s land inaccessible to even professional termite inspectors. However, these spaces are not inaccessible to drywood termites and beetles, which feed there, often 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, including those you may have never seen.
Before the fumigant is introduced, the structure is completely sealed to contain the fumigant in the building so it can penetrate the wood 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 before allowing the residents to return.
