IPM Consulting Services
IPM is more complex than traditional pest control. IPM programs require knowledgeable
professionalsto design them properly and to oversee them to ensure they remain on-track.
We develop IPM programs from scratch or upgrade existing programs. IPM programs are custom

Fumigation is the use of a gas to destroy pests which may infest a building or a product, an item of furniture, frames, wooden items, a car in fact virtually anything can be fumigated, there are exceptions but generally this is the case.

“We can pick up the item, take it to our gas chamber, or conversely we can seal it into what iscalled a “stack”, in heavy gauge polythene. Once we are sure that everything is gas tight
we can calculate the volume of the stack or chamber and thereby calculate the dose of gas required and introduce it, this is a skilled job and can only be carried out by highly qualified Fumigator.”
Fumigation isn’t residual…it will kill the pests in the item and it will also kill the eggs, which spraying doesn’t, but it does not leave a barrier to protect against re-infestation.

Fumigants are commercially available in a solid, liquid or gaseous state. Phosphine (PH3), for example, is a formulated fumigant commercially available as either tablets, pellets, bags or plates. Methyl bromide (CH3Br), on the other hand, is gaseous in form and packed in a liquid form in pressurised steel bottles. At temperature above 40°C it takes a gaseous state, thus, once the container is opened, the gas is released and starts to act as a fumigant. The two compounds are the most widely spread fumigants in use.
In a grain store it should be used in conjunction with a spraying program and the situation should be closely monitored.
