How Fumigation Works

Are you dealing with a frustrating and invasive pest problem? Is it the kind of problem that you look at and wonder how you are ever going to get rid of those bugs? If so, fumigation may be the solution you're looking for. Fumigation is perfect for pests that hide inside things. Have Indian meal moths infested your food? That is no problem for a fumigation. Do you suspect wood-boring insects are eating away at the antiques in your showroom? Fumigation can take care of that. Do you have bed bugs deep in your walls? Fumigation can get to them. This is a pest control method that works on a single piece of furniture or an entire food processing plant. Here's how it works.

There are gases that work to eradicate bugs. When these gases are properly controlled and used to target specific pests, they can be used to quickly and effectively arrest almost any pest infestation. Professional pest control technicians use tents to seal these gases into the locations being treated and follow strict safety guidelines to make sure those gases stay where they are supposed to be. These gases leave no chemical residue, and quickly dissipate after the service is complete.

Fumigation is so gentle, it can be used to treat post-harvest products, like wheat, soybeans, and corn, or be used in sensitive environments like those found in a pharmaceutical plant or food processing plant.
