Fumigation – very simply put is using a fumigant to control infestation in a particular commodity or place. A fumigant is a chemical which, at required temperature and pressure, can exist in a gaseous state in sufficient concentration to be lethal to a given pest organism.

Pest control workers remove these creatures from households, apartment buildings, places of businesses, and other structures, to protect people and maintain structural integrity.
Common pests include roaches, rats, mice, spiders, termites, ants, and bedbugs. Using information about pests’ biology and habits, along with an arsenal of pest management techniques, pest control workers locate, identify, and remove pests. They set traps, apply pesticides, and even modify structures at the discretion of the customer.

Pest Management Services for Your Business

Fumigation is the process of releasing toxic gases (pesticides) into a cargo hold or compartment for the purpose of eliminating or avoiding infestation by insects or other pests that may cause the cargo to deteriorate. Fumigation may take place either prior to and/or after loading of the cargo. In-transit fumigation is preferred by shippers and charterers because it reduces time in port.

The most widely used fumigants are phosphine-evolving gases (hydrogen phosphine) such as aluminum phosphide, magnesium phosphide, gastoxin or magtoxin. These fumigants come in solid form, i.e., pellets, and are usually placed on the surface of the stow or inserted just beneath it. Methyl bromide is applied in gaseous form from cylinders which connect to the holds via specially provided pipework. Methyl bromide fumigation is not allowed in-transit and requires the crew to be disembarked whilst it is carried out.
