When it comes to termite infestations, the best-case scenario is a solution that eliminates the entire nest with a single treatment. A few surviving termites can start an entire colony all over again. There are plenty of termite control methods that claim to be as effective as termite fumigation, but none of them offers the same level of guaranteed protection.
Termite fumigation treatment, also known as structural fumigation, encloses your property with a tent and releases precise amounts of gas fumigant into the tent. The fumigant gas penetrates deep into the structure and into hard-to-reach spaces such as attics, cracks and crevices, leaving your home termite-free.
Termite fumigation does take some preparation on your end but there is no reason for concern. Western Exterminator has been exterminating termites for over 100 years and your termite control expert will walk you through the process, every step of the way.
There are a number of things you’ll need to do to prepare your home and accommodation arrangements will need to be made for your family and pets. We will provide you with a comprehensive set of instructions to ensure a successful fumigation treatment.
Upon arrival, Western Exterminator fumigation professionals will enclose your property in a fumigation tent. The tent creates a solid seal around the structure and allows the fumigant gas to seep into the wood, reaching all nooks and crannies and wiping out the entire termite infestation.
The tent is vented, leaving behind no surface residue as the fumigant gas dissipates entirely from your home. Spot treatments can be carried out as an additional measure to ensure no termites remain to re-infest the structure.
Western Exterminator technicians will follow up to ensure your property is protected from termites and that all risk factors have been addressed. With termites, prevention is key and preventative recommendations will be made to ensure your peace of mind.
While fumigation eliminates 100% of termites, it also involves the use of powerful chemicals and requires homeowners to prepare the property to ensure successful treatment. The preparation process should be taken seriously and carried out prior to the fumigation treatment to reduce health and safety risks to family members and pets. These preparations include:
Once the termite fumigation treatment is complete, Western Exterminator fumigators will remove the tents, return your keys and let you know when you’ll be able to re-enter your home. Your family, pets and plants will be able to return home, completely termite and worry-free.
