Can Fumigation Help With Pest Control in Plantation?


You only hear of the term, “fumigation” when someone is talking about pest control, rodents, and termites. It’s one of those words that gets you worried automatically because first, you find out that your home is infested with termites, rodents, or other pests, and then, you find out that your home will have to have a tent on it and it will be unavailable for quite some time. The amount of time it takes to completely fumigate one’s home depends on the type of infestation. I can take anywhere from six hours to even about one week. That’s a long time to be away from your home.

So what us fumigation and how does the process look like? A fumigation is the process of using fumigant chemicals to control the pest infestation in any living space. Ironically, fumigation is one of the fastest and most effective ways to get rid of pests in your property. The chemicals are applied to the house in the form of gas. The gas chemicals are toxic to the pests in the home.

This is how the fumigation process looks like:

  1. First, your home is evacuated of all the inhabitants. All the owners and pets in the house are out of the house.
  2. Once your family has left the house, the fumigation team will cover your home with plastic sheeting or tarps. This is called “tenting.” You home looks like a huge tent or teepee.
  3. Then, all the doors and windows are all secured using bolts.
  4. Next, the fumigation begins as the gas fumigant is released into the home. The gas will fill up all the air spaces and overtake the wood, walls, and floors. When the termites or pests inhale the gas, they are instantly killed.
  5. Once the whole property is engulfed in the gas, the tarps are removed. The home will be aired out using large fans. The professional pest control company will check for any leftover fumigant chemicals using specialized equipment. When the house is cleared with absolutely no more gas residue, the pest control company will notify the homeowners so that they can return to their home.
