Advantages of Fumigation
The advantages of Fumigation over sprays, dusts, aerosols, liquids etc. are:
- Fumigants are toxic to all forms of life. Therefore, it is possible to control all life stages of the pest.
- Fumigation is often the quickest way of controlling an infestation, saving time and money.
- Fumigants can reach where sprays, dusts, aerosols etc cannot reach.
- Reduced residue problems in treated areas.
- Fumigants are used where standards call for "zero insect tolerance" in products or living environments.
