Unfortunately, you just received some awful news. Your home has a widespread infestation of Dry Wood Termites which is causing some significant damage to your home’s structure. You are now considering options on how to remove the Dry Wood Termites from your home.
Depending on the extent of the infestation, tenting may be needed. Tenting is a form of fumigation, and you will need to leave home during the process.
There are many benefits to fumigation:
Dry wood termites can be hiding anywhere in your home. The home tenting fumigation process is a complete and effective treatment for getting rid of your termite problem.
The downside is that homeowners and their families will need to be prepared to leave your home for a few days.
Fumigation is easy to spot with the colored tent covering a house being treated for termites and is called “structural fumigation”. This type of fumigation is the only guaranteed method for eliminating a widespread termite infestation in your home. During this fumigation, you’ll have to vacate your home for a few days while a pest control company fumigates and then the house is aired out for an extended period. The pest control company will test every area of the home to ensure it is safe to reenter, after which you can move back into your termite-free home.
Typically three days.
You will need to remove human, pets, and plants, unprotected foods and medicines not in airtight bags. Any canned goods and unopened glass or plastic bottles can remain. You will be given thorough instructions.
The process leaves no residue on dishes, clothing, furniture, or anything else in the home. The fumigators use sensitive equipment to “clear” the property for re-occupancy.
Yes, fumigation will kill most pests in your home, however, it does not leave a residue, so new pests such as ants can enter the structure immediately after the fumigation. Talk to your pest control professional to determine if you need a perimeter pest control treatment prior to fumigation.
The tent fumigation will kill the termites presently in your home. There is a warranty with the process, most companies offer an extended warranty option.
