Tent fumigation is scientifically proven to eradicate existing drywood termite infestations 100% when performed properly. The efficacy of this type of treatment has been confirmed by more than 40 years of university research and practical studies.

The tent fumigation process involves enclosing the structure within tarps and placing circulation fans and introduction lines throughout the home. Once a warning agent has been employed, the tarps are sealed completely and the introduction of the fumigant gas begins.

Based on the amount of fumigant introduced into the home, the structure is left enclosed for a period of time to ensure that adequate exposure is achieved. An effective exposure is dependent on the proper combination of exposure time and total fumigant introduced and maintained in the structure.

Fumigant gas readings may be taken to monitor the level of gas remaining in the structure during various times of the fumigation. Such recordings enable your fumigator to ensure that the structure has been treated effectively via the fumigant level and exposure time combination.

Once your fumigator determines that effective treatment has been achieved, he will begin to remove the tarps and aerate the structure. The fans used to assist the circulation of the fumigant within the enclosed structure, will also be used to aerate the property and disburse any remaining fumigant out of the home when the structure is no longer enclosed.

Following the completion of the fumigation and removal of fumigation equipment from your property, your fumigator will again monitor the levels of gas remaining in the structure and will lock up the home.

Using technological equipment, your fumigator must achieve a fumigant reading of 5 parts per million (5 parts of fumigant per 1 million parts of air) or less before clearing the property for re-entry.
