How can we help?
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 of Environment.

Fumigation is a quarantine requirement for countries such as Australia, New Zealand and China before goods are admitted into the country.

Items we fumigate include:-
 • Rice
 • Timber
 • Wooden Pallets
 • Furniture
 • Tobacco
 • Special artifacts
 • Antiques
 • Pianos
vLive Flowers etc.
