5 Components for Fumigation Success

  1. Sealing - The structure must be sealed to reduce gas loss during exposure.

  2. Dosage - The concentration of gas and the time the pest is exposed to the gas is determined by the temperature and the species of insect.

  3. Monitoring - Throughout a fumigation, gas level readings are taken through tubes placed in the fumigated space prior to gas introduction. The readings insure adequate dosage.

  4. Temperature - Warmer temperatures will result in a more effective fumigation. The temperature must be above 50 degrees F. It must also be maintained during both the exposure and the aeration.

  5. Aeration - Aeration time is variable, depending on temperature, humidity and air movement.
