Boltin Pest Control offers fumigation service that is designed to protect human health and the structure and its contents from damaging insects such as termites and beetles.
When Is Fumigation Service Necessary?
Fumigation Service is a method of pest control that completely fills an area with gaseous fumigants (pesticides) to suffocate or poison the pests within. It is used to control pests in buildings (structural fumigation), soil, grain, and produce, and is also used during processing of goods to be imported or exported to prevent transfer of exotic organisms. This method of pest eradication also affects the structure itself by penetrating to the pests that inhabit deep within the physical structure, such as wood borers and dry-wood termites. Spot treatment of normal pest control does not reach the pests lurking deep within.
Call Boltin Pest Control today to find out if fumigation is the right treatment for your infestation. Fumigation is often referred to as a last-ditch effort, but in many cases it’s a necessary part of total pest control.
Homeowners who decide to get termite tent fumigation must realize that they need to do some significant preparation before the fumigation service process can begin. Boltin Pest Control will guide you through the process.

Additional Information On Fumigation Service
What Is The Fumigation Service Process?
Step 1: Owner prepares the structure for fumigation.
Step 2: The area to be treated is covered with tarp (known as “tenting”) then all ventilation holes and slats are taped shut to ensure the fumigation chemicals are trapped inside.
Step 3: After all humans and animals have exited, pesticide vapors are pumped into the tent structure where they seep into wood, upholstery, and all elements of the structure to kill hard-to-reach pests.
Step 4: The chemicals are allowed to steep for a set period of time, usually between 24-72 hours, then the area is de-fumigated by and the tent is removed.
Step 5: A pest control professional will manually check all areas of concern in the property to ensure the pest infestation is under control. Continued follow-up spot treatments may be necessary.
Items Affected In Your House When Fumigated
- Your Food: Any food that has already been open or in which the seal has been popped should be double bagged in special Nylon Polymer bags. After they have been properly sealed in these Nylon Polymer bags they can be left in the home. If you have any doubt as to whether or not some type of food should be sealed, bag it. When in doubt, you can also remove the items from your home and store them at a neighbors or friends. Canned foods and foods in glass jars do not have to be bagged. For example a 2 liter bottle of soda can be left as is.
- Pet Food: Should be treated the same as human food. If it is open it should be double bagged with Nylon Polymer bags. If it is still sealed by the manufacturer it can remain as is.
- Alcohol: Again, treat these the same as other liquids. If they still contain the manufacturers seal feel free to leave them unbagged. If the seal is broken in any way then double bag it. Corked wine bottles should either be bagged or stored horizontally.
- Tobacco: Tobacco products should be treated the same as food products prior to tenting. Bag up anything that is not still sealed by the manufacturer.
- Pets: It’s not difficult to remember to remove your dog or cat but other little critters should also be removed prior fumigation. If your kids have something like a hamster, lizard, gold fish, etc. they should be taken from the home during the fumigation process.
- House Plants: Remove any plant you may have in your home until after the fumigation is complete.
