What Is Termite Fumigation?
When you think of termite treatment, fumigation is probably the image that comes to mind. Fumigation is a method of applying a gas to exterminate pests within an enclosed space such as a home, garage, or storage space. The space is either enclosed in a tent or sealed with plastic and tape. It is the primary method for killing all termites present, even those hidden in less accessible areas, and is often recommended for more widespread infestations.
Fumigation For Drywood Termites
Termites can come from many places, including your neighbor’s home, a fallen tree, or even a firewood pile. During “swarming season”, drywood termites fly away from their colonies looking for a place to establish a new one… and unfortunately the perfect place may be your home.
These pests often set up camp in hard-to-reach areas of your home, like the attic or behind walls. Fumigation is typically chosen for its ability to reach these areas and eliminate all termites in a single treatment. Once treatment is complete, the gas exits your home and does not leave behind any surface residue.
