When Is Fumigation Inevitable?
We understand that most Kansas homeowners would rather not fumigate their homes as it’s an unpleasant process. Our approach is to eradicate the various pests with a combination of extermination and other methods before resorting to fumigation. However, fumigation is necessary when extermination does not produce the results we projected it to and a more extensive method is required.
Fumigation is the process of dispersing a lethal form of a gaseous chemical into a residence or building that is highly effective at eradicating pests. This gas permeates the premises enabling it to have a higher success rate of eliminating pests as it devastates both visible infestations and those that are out of reach.
The Effects Of Fumigation
Resorting to this method is necessary in severe cases of pest infestation to completely wipe out the pests. State law requires that a posting be placed in the attic or subarea about the details including the date of the fumigation. When a property is fumigated, it is standard procedure for it to be vacated for 24-48 hours as this allows the gas to infiltrate the premises and reach all the pests.
Depending on the various pests, an array of chemicals will be used that are highly potent so it’s crucial you never attempt to enter a property until it has been efficiently aerated.
This method is a complete treatment of eradicating the pests so a removal of these pests should be performed to eliminate any potential odors. The concentration of the fumigant gas is odorless yet there is an agent that’s added to it that acts as a warning to alert you of exposure.
Returning to your place after it has been fumigated should be done after a pest control technician has inspected it.
