Many patrons believe that pest control in Indianapolis is difficult to enforce over large areas, but Action's specialized fumigation techniques can correct even the most intimidating infestations.

Fumigation, also known as structural fumigation, is the process of filling a building, compound, or another area with gaseous chemicals that negatively affect pests. This process is fundamental for many commercial properties all over the state, from food storehouses to retail locations. In order to address the questions and concerns surrounding this beneficial pest control process, we have provided a list of the most frequently asked questions.

What Are The Chemicals Used For Fumigation?

The types of chemical compounds in different products, gases, and sprays used for fumigation will depend on the type of residence and species of the invasive pests. Pharmaceutical companies, flour mills, lumber companies, and packing and shipping businesses require different standards for their individual industries.
Investigating all available products on the market, Action specifically uses a compound known as sulfuryl fluoride to protect post-harvest products like wheat, corn, and soybeans.

What Does Fumigation Kill?

Fumigation is an incredibly effective method of pest control, no matter what commercial or residential property needs protection.
Indian meal moths, grain and flour beetles, and other destructive pests are kept away from agricultural compounds and restaurants all around Indiana state. What’s more, pests like termites, beetles, bed bugs, cockroaches, and even rodents can be kept out of homes and businesses while protecting the health of all occupants. Fumigation is also an excellent method of controlling spiders and spider webs in hard-to-reach locations.

Is Fumigation Harmful To Humans?

By its very definition, fumigation uses a high concentration of chemicals and compounds to exterminate a wide variety of pests. The nature of toxic chemicals may make them appear dangerous or risky, but fumigation does not pose a health risk when completed safety through trained operatives.
