Fumigation is the process where
a highly toxic fumigant such as Methyl Bromide or Hydrogen
Phospide is used to eradicate pests from products, produce
or a location (ships, aircraft etc).
The process involves the complete covering or sealing
of the product or item to be fumigated with canvas, plastic
sheets or taping to make it as airtight as possible. The
fumigant is then released into the sealed area or compartment.
The duration of exposure varies from 4 hours to 24 hours,
depending on the product to be fumigated and the type
of fumigant used. Fumigation is carried out by licensed
fumigators who undergo 18 months of on-the-job training
and must pass an examination conducted by the Ministry
Fumigation is a quarantine requirement for countries such
as Australia, New Zealand and China before goods are admitted
into the country.
