Eliminating Your Pest Problem for Good

If your pest problem has gotten out of hand, you may need to resort to a fumigation service. Fumigation is the process of sealing your home under a large canvas and then pumping it full of gas that exterminates any living within. This process is generally pretty labor intensive and does take several days to successfully complete. However, it offers a better success rate than traditional products and can get you back to living a comfortable, pest-free life in your home faster.

How Fumigation (Tenting) Works

The fumigation process should generally only be considered as a “last resort” and should only be used if an infestation has gotten to the point where traditional treatment options will either take too long or run the risk of not working at all. This is most common with tiny but rapidly reproducing pests, such as fleas, flies, mosquitoes, or bedbugs. During this process, your home is sealed with a rubber canvas and its environment is loaded with a toxic gas that eventually eliminates all of the pests living in your home. This includes the space between your walls, in your flooring, and even in the attic over your head. However, because it takes time for air in these areas to change, this process can take several days to complete.

During the fumigation process, you will not be able to stay in your home. The gas used is toxic if ingested in large quantities, but it is extracted as much as possible before you’re given the all-clear to return home. Fumigation is a potentially hazardous operation, but your Yates-Astro professionals hold official certification to perform fumigations in a manner that ensures maximum safety.

Fumigation FAQ

Is fumigation safe?

When conducted by licensed and experienced professionals, fumigation is considered safe. However, it's important to follow all safety instructions provided by the pest control company. Occupants and pets must vacate the premises during the process, and proper aeration and clearance procedures must be followed before re-entry. Improper handling of fumigants can pose health risks, so it's crucial to rely on trained professionals for this type of pest control.

Do I have to wash everything after fumigation?

Yes, after fumigation, it's recommended to clean and wash any surfaces, dishes, utensils, and food preparation areas that may have come into contact with the fumigant. Additionally, it's a good idea to wash bedding, clothing, and other items that could have been exposed. This helps ensure that any residue from the fumigation process is safely removed. Always follow the specific instructions provided by the pest control company for post-fumigation cleaning.

If my neighbor's house is being tented, does that mean my home is at risk?

If your neighbor's house is being tented for fumigation, it does not necessarily mean your home is automatically at risk. However, it's always a good idea to take precautions. Ensure that your windows and doors are closed during the fumigation process to prevent any potential exposure to the fumigants. Additionally, follow any safety instructions provided by the pest control company and consult with them if you have concerns about your property's proximity to the fumigated area.

How long does the fumigation process typically take?

The duration of the fumigation process can vary depending on the size of the property and the extent of the infestation. Typically, it can range from a few hours to several days. The pest control company will provide you with an estimated timeline based on the specific requirements of your property.

Can I stay in my home during fumigation?

No, it is essential for occupants and pets to vacate the premises during the fumigation process. This is necessary to ensure their safety and to allow the fumigants to effectively eradicate the pests. Once the fumigation is complete, proper aeration and clearance procedures must be followed before re-entry.

Is fumigation effective for all types of pests?

Fumigation is highly effective for controlling a wide range of pests, including termites, bed bugs, and certain types of beetles. However, the suitability of fumigation for specific pest infestations may vary. It's best to consult with a pest control professional to determine the most appropriate treatment for your particular pest problem.

Are there any specific preparations I need to make before fumigation?

Yes, there are several preparations that may be necessary before fumigation, such as removing all plants, pets, and food items from the property. Additionally, the pest control company may provide specific instructions for sealing or bagging certain items. It's important to carefully follow these guidelines to ensure the success of the fumigation process.
