When It’s Time for A Termite Fumigation
When a termite infestation has become too severe or extensive for localized chemical treatments, fumigation is the recommended process for complete eradication. Attacking drywood termites, which live in wood rather than within soil, structural fumigation treatments allow termite exterminators to treat widespread or difficult-to-locate termite colonies.
The Fumigation Process
After the initial assessment, the fumigation process begins with the tarping or tenting of the property. The tent allows the chemical fumigant to safely circulate throughout the structure, permeating into the cracks and crevices in which termites live. The insects die fairly quickly after inhaling the chemical fumes.
Because of the resulting toxins, residents are required to vacate the home. The entire process, from tenting to aeration, generally takes between 24 and 72 hours. Before opening the home to residents, our pest control experts will safely test each room to ensure any residual fumigants have been dispersed and the air quality is now safe for inhabitants.
At Termite Patrol, we recommend that all fumigation treatments are followed up with protective measures that are designed to keep termites from inhabiting your home in the future. Sealing cracks and protecting exposed wood surfaces help to reduce the likelihood of future termite colonies. Our technicians will pinpoint any areas of concern and make recommendations for repair or improvement.
