Fumigation Services

Fumigation is the application of an insecticide gas to a specific volume. As the gas expands into that volume, it penetrates all cracks, crevices and pores. Depending on your specific needs, the chosen gas will comprehensively control all types of pests present in the treated areas without impacting compromising the environment for humans or food qualities. 

Additionally, fumigation gas controls insects in every stage of their life cycle, to include the egg and larval stages. Fumigation is also useful in treating most microbial infections, such as mould and fungus. Effective against all stages of insect development and used to help eradicate a variety of pests, fumigation is particularly effective where global trade is involved, such as in agriculture and warehousing facilities. 

Fumigation is a complex pest control method with many variables that need to be considered for the treatment to be carried out safely, legally and effectively. Boecker® offers expert commercial fumigation services to support businesses, not only ensuring commercial properties and business assets are kept pest-free, but that services are delivered by competent and licensed field professionals with the required knowledge, skill and experience.
