At Action, we get a lot of phone calls regarding the fumigation services that we offer. Many business owners and commercial facility managers look for fumigation services to eliminate problem pests inside their properties. Although most businesses in our area work with an Integrated Pest Management approach to commercial pest control, there are occasions when pest problems slip through the cracks, and fumigation services must be sought to control the problem. If you’ve been looking for information on fumigation services for your business, the pros at Action Pest Control have compiled a few of our most frequently asked questions to answer some of the more common questions we get from clients in our service area.
