Price Termite & Pest Control Fumigation Procedure
Once our licensed professionals have determined a fumigation procedure is necessary to treat your pest problem, there are some steps that must be taken to prepare for safe and effective fumigation.
- All pets must be removed from the home. They must not return until we have told you it is safe.
- All plants must be removed, as the fumigation procedure could cause them harm.
- Food must be sealed in the plastic bags provided or removed from the structure all together.
- The ground surrounding the home should be moistened before the tent is set up. This will create a seal between the tent and the earth to prevent the fumigation gas from escaping the enclosed area.
You, your family, and/or your employees will also need to leave the home or business until fumigation is complete. Please make sure to follow these procedures thoroughly to ensure your home or business is safe during the fumigation process. A detailed Fumigation Preparation List is provided that outlines each and every step.
After the above steps are completed, the home or business will be tented. The tenting process involves covering the structure with a large tent, which is sealed properly to control the gas used to fumigate for pests. The gas utilized is effective for treating and eliminating the majority of pests; the gas can even penetrate woodwork to kill pests that burrow into wood, such as termites.
