Fumigation Cape Town is a commonly mistaken service. People here in Cape Town think its another word for “kill em all.” This couldn’t be further from the truth when confronting a Cape Town Pest Control Expert. To us, Fumigation Cape Town is a specialist way of treating a specialist Insect.
Fumigation Cape Town deal with so many Insects in so many fields of life, Commercial, Industrial and Domestic Fumigations are available for a unique few pests and circumstances. Types of Insects that commonly need a hard core Fumigation are as follows:
A normal residual insecticidal spray treatment may not be enough to treat Wood Borer, Dry and Wet Rot as well as Termites. In these cases the organisms are so deep into the wood. The exposure from conventional treatments will not penetrate and kill all insects and organisms. Methyl Bromide is the only registered Fumigant used for timber within South Africa.

Poor stock rotation and house keeping practices produce the perfect environment for these Pests to manifest. Common fumigants include Aluminum phosphate or Dichlorvos.

Why is Fumigation Cape Town commonly mistaken.
In the good old days where smoking was thought to be healthy and gas guzzling motor vehicles were still cool. Pest Control Companies would use Cyanide or DDT to kill pretty much any unwanted guest. These products were cheap and readily available. Not much thought was given on the environmental impact these substances cause. Non-target casualties and Birth Defects were the order of the day.
As of recent times we no longer use gasses and Organophosphates to treat pests. Skilled Pest Controllers study infestations, activity level and treat every pest individually. With special insecticides that target a certain group of insects this is no longer a fumigation. Sprays are low-odor and no longer diffuse through walls and carpets. More controlled means are used for minimal staining and cross contamination.
Fumigation Cape Town is now controlled and set aside as a specialist fields for only a hand full of unique situations. Pest Control Cape Town believe that such fumigation should only be carried out as a last resort. If all other methods have failed and this is a last option to gain control of an otherwise out of control Pest Infestation.
