Fumigation is the most common method of pest control and extermination. This includes the use of pesticides or pesticide retardants called fumigants to poison pests in a residential area, commercial complex, or public place. 

Fumigation is also used in the import and export of livestock to prevent soil contamination in agricultural or grain production or to destroy insects, worms, and organisms that can be moved from one place to another. While overuse of chemicals in any form should not be allowed because it can damage human life or building buildings, this process is not entirely effective in destroying pests, just to keep pests out there. does not allow. area


The fumigation process is usually done in stages. As a first step, the entire area in need of fumigation is sealed or sealed. The area is then fumigated, i.e. the chemicals are released into an enclosed area, which can be used as a home, office, warehouse or storage complex, underground warehouse, shipping containers, and so on. In the third stage, the fumigant is given time to completely fill the enclosure and destroy the pest itself or the pest. Finally, the place is ventilated with fresh air and sunlight so that no trace of chemicals or gases remains. Once this process is complete and fully inspected, the area is certified against pests.

Chemicals Used in Fumigation

Accidental use of many chemicals was widespread before the international treaty to protect the ozone layer from extinction in the late 1980s - the Montreal Protocol. The most widely used fumigant at the time was methyl bromide; then its production and use are limited.

Methods of Fumigation

In a broad sense, fumigation methods can be classified as surface and underground. Surface treatment refers to fumigation carried out on an open surface. Subsoil refers to treatments in which gases or chemicals must be applied to places such as soil, shipping containers and storage containers, and so on.

The methods adopted for surface spraying are highly dependent on the condition, conditions, and nature of the pests and pesticides. The “Awning method” is applied to the houses, where a rubber tent is placed to cover the area. In larger structures, such as entire buildings, other options arise that take into account the size and damage of the building.


Fumigation should be carried out in a non-hazardous manner and the agency or operator carrying out the process should have information about the chemicals and use them to ensure maximum safety for life and property. must be a certified body. The data area includes the ratio of the fumigant to the area, the type of fumigant, the duration of the fumigation effect, and the complete ventilation after fumigation.

Many pest control and pest service companies place great emphasis on identifying and adhering to environmentally friendly pest control and fumigation methods that do not cause any harm or danger to the environment. The newest and most advanced pest management practices follow an integrated pest management approach based on three standard principles. These are:
