The very word fumigation sounds intimidating, but here at Western Exterminator we can say that we are pest control professionals who are the experts in fumigation techniques. We know how stressful it can be to think about the big tents, having to stay away from the building for a while, and the use of fumigants in the place where you work, but we do all we can to alleviate those fears with our professionalism and courtesy.

Our fumigation methods are needed when localized methods do not work. Sometimes the infestation is too large or too difficult to remove just from spot treatments and other methods.

The good news is that with fumigation usually only one application is needed to get rid of 100% of pests like stored product pests, termites and other wood-destroying pests. We also use a method that will not leave behind any residue, odor or film on the surfaces treated.

Preparing for commercial fumigation

Western Exterminator offers various commercial fumigation services such as full or partial facility fumigation, commodity fumigation (including railroad cars), household goods fumigation, and export required fumigation.

To prepare for a fumigation treatment, there are some things that must be done inside and outside the building.

Interior preparation 

  • Extinguish any open flames or other sources of heat
  • Allow for full penetration and aeration by opening doors and equipment within the facility
  • Remove objects that might not withstand fumigation (i.e. live plants)

Exterior preparation

  • Lock all exterior doors and windows or at least verify that they can be locked
  • Provide any necessary keys so that all areas of the property are accessible for fumigation
  • Ensure that all truck docks are clear
  • Alert local police and fire departments that service is taking place

Container fumigation

We are licensed professionals in fumigation methods including fumigation of containers, trailers and other spaces. If you have a container stored at a secure location and have pest concerns, provided the trailer is capable of holding the fumigant at the right concentration, we can help. There are a lot of factors that go into chamber and container fumigation such as the type of pests, humidity, temperature, weather conditions and how the product inside is packaged. Our fumigation experts can help by offering advice on what will work best for your business.

Experts in structural fumigation

There are times when a complete structural fumigation is required. There are some insects and pests that are tough to eliminate once they get a foothold in a structure such as cockroaches, termites, bed bugs, rodents and stored food pests. To make sure they are gone, fumigation is the solution.

A Western Exterminator fumigation expert will discuss the entire process with you and let you know what needs to be done. We make sure that you comfortable with the entire plan before we set up the tents.

Fumigation for termites

Because missing even a couple of termites can mean hundreds of dollars of damage in the future, it is critical to eliminate the entire population as quickly as possible. Fumigation, or termite tenting, is one of the most effective ways to do so. This process involves covering an entire structure with a tent, allowing for application of a gas that will penetrate the wood and get rid of termites at all life stages.

If you have a termite problem, our fumigation services may be the answer. To schedule an appointment with a Western Exterminator fumigation expert, contact us online or call 800-937-8398.
