Termites can tear through your lumber, eat away at your wooden deck, and even affect
the structural integrity of your home. Fortunately termite control companies
are prepared to fumigate the area and rid you of your termite problem.
Here are the answers to some of your questions about termite fumigation.
How Should I Prepare for Fumigation?
Due to the potentially dangerous nature of termite fumigations, it is
important to understand what you must remove from the home before the
process can begin. Before termite fumigation, you will have to find a
place for any pets and plants that typically stay in the home. Unless
they are sealed in glass or metal containers, food and medicine should
be removed from the home as well. Let your fumigation and pest control
service know about any drains or systems that might allow fumigants to
spread from your home.
Do I Have to Leave My House?
It is absolutely imperative that you leave your house during termite fumigation.
Your pest control company will be using lethal gases in the extermination
of termites from your home, and these gases are lethal to humans as well
as bugs. The amount of time you will remain away from your house depends
on a few different factors including the size of your home and the intensity
of the infestation. Your professional fumigation service will let you
know when it is safe to enter your home again.
What Types of Fumigants Are Used?
Many homeowners prefer to know exactly what kinds of fumigants are used
within their homes, and this is a reasonable request. Your pest control
company should inform you of the names of the fumigants used as well as
the ingredients that they contain. The fumigant will also be listed on
your re-entry notice.
