Fumigation Services in Dubai
Fumigation is a method of pest control that completely fills an area with gaseous pesticides to suffocate or poison the pests within. It is utilized for control of pests in furniture and household items, soil, grain, and produce, and is also used during processing of goods to be imported or exported to prevent transfer of exotic organisms.
Fumigation in Dubai usually involves the following phases: First the item or area to be fumigated is usually covered to create a sealed environment. Next the fumigant (chemical) is released into the space to be fumigated. Then, the space is sealed for a set period while the fumigant gas percolates through the space and acts on and kills any infestation in the product. Next the space is ventilated so that the gasses are allowed to escape from the space and render it safe for humans to enter. Phosphine gas fumigants are in solid form, either as aluminum phosphide or magnesium phosphide. In arrow termite and pest control Kenya we focuses on aluminum phosphide that is under various brand names including Phostoxin, Phosfume, and Weevilcide. Aluminum phosphide can be used to eliminate insect infestation in a variety of commodities, including animal feed and feed ingredients, corn, cottonseed, grass seed, millet, oats, peanuts, pecans, popcorn, rye, sorghum, soyabeans, triticale, and wheat. We also be use for a variety of processed foods as long as the residue dust does not come in direct contact with the product. They can be used on some nonfood commodities including straw and hay, cotton, feathers, tobacco, dried plants and flowers, and seeds. The fumigant label contains a complete list of commodities that can be fumigated. Phosphine fumigants can be used in a variety of structures including grain bins and silos, rail cars, warehouses, and flat storage structures.
Fumigation is recognized as an effective means of targeted control of Stored Product Insects (SPIs) such as beetles, weevils, mite and moths.
It can safeguard businesses such as shipping and cargo, manufacturing, warehousing, milling and agriculture.
Cargo fumigation treatments can control infestations of bulk consignments prior to shipment. This ensures that shipments are transported safely without risk of contamination.
Commodity fumigation is the treatment of a product by a gas, chemical or other process to eliminate the risk of a pest infestation.
A commodity can be described as anything from grain to personal effects imported or exported from one country or state to another.
The commodity can be by itself (loose or LCL: loose container load), in a container (FCL: full container load), or in a silo.
Silo fumigation is a cost-effective method to treat large amounts of grain products, for example cereals, animal feeds or chocolate within its storage vessel ( e.g. a silo). It is a viable, alternative service to container fumigation.
Key Benefits of Silo Fumigation
Most silo fumigations are done to save time and money due to the fact that large amounts of products can be treated in one hit for a relatively low cost compared to container fumigation.
The quality of stored commodities will not be affected or downgraded. Using silo fumigation means that your final product will not be affected with insect specimens or fragments.
Pressure Testing Silos
The silo must meet similar protocols as the pressure decay fumigation for the product to be suitable for treatment within it.
A pressure test on a silo does not have to be done every time the silo is used for treatment, but it is recommended that it is inspected every time before use and pressure tested every 6 months or when modifications have been made to ensure efficacy of the fumigation service.
Phosphine fumigation treatment is a simple, cost effective method of eliminating insect pests in bulk commodities and can be used as a curative pest control solution.
Fumigation services for Bulk Commodities
Fumigation is effective in targeting Stored Product Insects (SPIs) such as beetles, weevils, mites and moths. SPIs can infest grain and bulk commodities such as cocoa, rice, nuts and animal feed, along with other raw materials used within food and feed manufacture.
Treatment of Grain and Food Produce
Phosphine is an accepted treatment for most bulk food produce including cereals, grains, dried fruit, nut, rice, cocoa and coffee beans. It eliminates all life cycle stages of the target insect pest, with all the advantages of being non-tainting and leaving no pesticide residue.
Sufficient time must be allowed for the fumigant to work effectively. The time ‘under gas’ is referred to as ‘exposure period’. When Phosphine is used at ambient temperatures, best results are usually achieved in 8 days, and usually slightly longer in the winter season.
