What Is Fumigation?

Fumigation is a method of protection from pests.  Pests, insects and bacteria that are thought to be harmful are suffocated by giving gaseous chemicals (fumigant) in a closed environment.

Fumigation is a dangerous operation and legal requirements, such as official certificates, are often required from businesses that will perform the fumigation. Fumigation also requires other stages.  First of all, the area to be fumigated must be in a sealed environment.  The fumigant is then released into the area to be fumigated. Then this area is kept in this way for a certain period of time so that the fumigant spreads to the entire area and kills the pests to be rid of. This area is then ventilated and toxic fumigant gases are removed.  Proper ventilation in this environment is critical because of the fumigation situation.
