fumigation spider bugs


Few critters strike fear into the hearts of homeowners more than Brown Recluse Spiders and Bed Bugs. Both can infest a structure so deeply, normal pest control procedures and products cannot reach them. In spite of the pest control industry’s best interest, infestations will persist and people and pets will continue to be bitten and fed upon.

In 2011, after much research, McCarthy Pest Control determined true fumigation would effectively eliminate Brown Recluse Spider and Bed Bug infestations COMPLETELY. This concept is not new; it is used all over the world in warm climates to kill dry wood termite infestations. What is innovative, is bringing this technology to the ST. LOUIS area. Since 2011, many local homes and businesses have been tented and fumigated to completely destroy Brown Recluse Spiders and their eggs.

Bed Bugs can infest homes, apartments, condos, emergency vehicles, theaters, and virtually anywhere man inhabits. Fumigation is the most effective and thorough way to eliminate Bed Bugs.

When you are faced with Brown Recluse Spider or Bed Bug issues,
it’s good to know a call to McCarthy will fix the problem when no one else can!


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!
