This is the process of completely ‘tenting’/sealing a structure so that a fumigant gas can be introduced inside that structure. Once ‘tented’, the fumigant is released inside, where it proceeds to completely infuse into every part of the structure. It will penetrate into walls, floors, attics, and every conceivable airspace void that may exist. Because the gas has the ability to completely penetrate into all areas of the structure, it therefore has the ability to reach every hiding place that the target pest can be harboring. That is why fumigation is the single most effective treatment method there is. The fumigant even has the ability to penetrate an insect’s egg sac and eliminate eggs too.
During this process the occupants, and some food items, are removed for safety purposes. This process can take from several hours to several days depending on the size of the structure, the type of insect that is targeted, and the overall urgency for the occupant to return.
Once the process is complete, the fumigant gas is completely aerated from the structure. Then a specially calibrated instrument is used to verify that there are zero parts per million of the gas still in the structure. At this point occupants are safely allowed back in and, best of all, there is no chemical cleanup, no odor, no harmful effects and NO MORE BUGS!
