Pest Control Fumigation – Nobody wants to live in a home with pests. Whether you’re battling roaches, termites, bed bugs, or any other type of invasive creepy crawly; fumigation might be your best bet for getting rid of them and finally getting your home back.
What is Fumigation?
Fumigation is the use of fumigants (gaseous chemicals) to suffocate and kill pests within a structure. It is an invasive procedure that requires all other humans and animals to be outside of the home; for anywhere from several hours to an entire week, so it is not often a first line of defense. However, particularly stubborn pest infestations may require fumigation to be effectively taken care of.
Professional Fumigation vs. Do-It-Yourself Fumigation
One of the first steps in figuring out how to fumigate your home is deciding whether it’s a job that can be done on your own; or if you’re going to need to hire the pros to do it for you. There are a few factors to consider.
- The extent of the infestation. Localized and/or small infestations may be effectively treatable with DIY fumigation products. Widespread and/or large infestations, however, may require tenting and a more extensive fumigation process, in which case you will probably be better off going straight to a professional fumigation company.
- Price and convenience. DIY pest control requires fogger bombs, which spread fumigants throughout your home. They can be picked up at home improvement stores for about $10 to $100; depending on the square footage of the area that you are treating. They can also be used on your own time; (though you’ll still need to vacate your home for a set period).
- Safety. Spreading gaseous pesticides throughout your home is no small matter. If the fumigation process is done incorrectly; you are putting the health of your family, your pets; and other nearby people and animals at serious risk. Make sure that you fully understand the process and the risks; before fumigating on your own; and if you’re at all worried about doing it right; hire professionals for peace of mind.
