What to expect from Grain Fumigation Services?

Treatment: Grain FumigationPlastic sheets are placed over the commodity and the gas is introduced over a period of between 14 to 28 days (depending on temperature). During this period the gas permeates through the commodity, killing all life stages of the stored product pest. This treatment method is extremely effective for all stored food insects such as Weevils, Beetles, Mites and Moths, and kills the many hundreds of eggs that could cause complete devastation to your store. Phosphide gas has the added benefit that it is strong enough to permeate through most containers, even cardboard, without causing any damage to the integrity of the packaging.

Quality Checks: Following this period, a gas detection apparatus is used to show that the gas concentration in all areas is the below the Occupational Exposure Standards (OES), and the current maximum exposure limit (MEL).

Certification: After these tests are successfully passed, Grain Fumigation Services will provide you with a complete, in-depth fumigation certificate.
