The word fumigation is often misunderstood by the majority of the population. Effective fumigation is the introduction of fumigant as a gas to control all pests in an enclosed area. Fumigants are “wide-spectrum” pesticides, controlling all species of arthropods and rodents that are likely to be found in a building. They are also a volatile material whose vapors enter the insect’s body through the body wall or breathing system. Fumigants penetrate the many areas of a building not reached by sprays or dusts, even penetrating to the burrows of wood-infesting insects. It penetrates to the center of tightly packed commodities, such as tobacco in hogsheads (A large storage barrel), bales, cases or grain in large silos or bulking bins. A fumigant gas generally does not leave unsightly, odorous, or hazardous residues.
