Black Knight Fumigation

Fumigation Treatment

Black Knight Fumigation

 We all have seen the tent covered house once or twice, and no it doesn't mean the Circus is in town.

There are several different ways to get rid of a termite problem and a fumigation is one commonly used by many home and business owners. A fumigation seems to bring up many questions and concerns, and hopefully I can answer some of those for you.

What is a fumigation?

A Fumigation is a method that uses a lethal gas to exterminate pests in an enclosed area.

What things do I need to do to prepare myself, family, and home before the fumigation?

People, pets and plants need to be removed from the home. Food and medications that are not sealed in highly resistant containers must be removed or sealed in protective bags and placed in the refrigerator. (Black Knight will provide the home owner with the needed bags up to a specific amount at no cost.)

How long will it take?

Depending on the type of infestation, size of the structure, dosage, and other factors, the fumigation can take anywhere from 6 hours to one week. Usually when using Black Knight Pest for the fumigation the tent will come down 3 days after the fumigation has taken place after 5 pm.

Does a fumigation smell?

No, structural fumigants are odorless.

Can anyone enter the structure while it is being fumigated?

Absolutely not. No one can enter the structure, doing so could result in serious injury or death.

Will a fumigation eliminate all the termites and pests?

The fumigation will not eliminate subterranean termites as they require separate treatment since their nests are underground.

The process of putting up the tent for the fumigation could take several hours depending on the size of the structure.

It is recommended that you purchase a separate tile insurance for the roof. The professionals are extremely careful but a loss in a few pieces of tile may occur in the tenting process.
