STRUCTURAL TENT FUMIGATION FOR DRYWOOD TERMITES
There are a number of invasive insects in our islands that are threats to our economy, our environment, our health, and our lifestyle. The drywood termite is one of those invasive species; and those that have been invaded by such know first-hand the destruction that can be caused if not identified and treated early.
Our termite inspections are always free and are performed by expert staff that are licensed to do so. If the inspection results in active termite evidence and the recommendation for termite tenting, our team guides you through the entire preparation process and re-entering of property. From exterior preparations (e.g., debris removal or cutting back of shrubs), to providing bags (for securing perishable food items, pet foods, and medicines), to confirming that you and your pets have a place to stay away from the structure for a minimum of 24 hours (longer if we are treating for bed bugs and/or powder post beetles as well), to letting you know when it is safe to re-enter the property. We guide you through the entire process.
The actual tenting and treatment process of your property is performed by our tent fumigators. At Hawaii Fumigation & Pest Control, Inc., we are humbly proud to have the best tent fumigators in the state! Our fumigators have years of experience, knowledge, and licenses, and go out of their way to make the inconvenience of tent fumigation as painless as possible. In fact, with proper preparation, the tent fumigation process is not nearly as bad as it may seem. If you are unable to meet our fumigators on the day of tenting, then together we make prior arrangements so our crews can get the job done and get it done exceptionally.
How does tenting for drywood termites eliminate the infestation?
Unlike a vault fumigation that destroys termites in a single piece of furniture or other item, tent fumigation eradicates an infestation throughout an entire structure. The tents are precisely secured around the structure to create an airtight means for safely treating the property. Once the tents are secured, a certified technician pumps gas fumigants into the tent. The amount of fumigants pumped follows all federal and state guidelines, and is monitored throughout the treatment period with the use of monitors left in the structure prior to closing up the tents. The monitors ensure that gas levels are sufficient throughout the tenting process to completely destroy the termite infestation. Our crew post warning signs around the perimeter of the structure, and those signs remain posted until the tents are officially removed.
Do I have to wash dishes or clothes after the fumigation process?
The gas fumigant we use to eliminate termite infestations is called Vikane. Vikane gas does not stick to surfaces due to its non-residual properties. So the simple answer is no, you do not need to wash dishes or clothes after the fumigation process. We have many customers, though, that wash their dishes just for their own peace of mind.
Do I really need to tent my entire home for drywood termites?
Tenting a property for drywood termites is inconvenient and unpleasant for many. To fully understand if a structural tenting is required or if localized treatments will eliminate your termite challenges, please call your professional pest control company. Most pest control companies provide free inspections, and can better assess what your property may need.
My property needs tent fumigation for drywood termite infestation. How much is it going to cost me?
The cost of fumigating a property for drywood infestations is based on a number of factors: Cubic footage, location, number of stories on the structure, and obstructions around the structure or on the roof that will impede the tenting process. We provide free estimates that come with a five-year warranty, and no annual warranty renewal fees.
