Whole structure poison gas fumigation performed for complete termite eradication is a complex procedure. There are a number of critical steps that must be completely followed, in order to obtain a successful treatment. Commercial fumigators’ know the detailed information needed for an effective treatment application to occur.

Most fumigation firms hire experienced, and highly educated, knowledgeable and licensed professionals. However; far too often, these professionals are forced to supervise and delegate the technically skilled responsibilities to uneducated laborers, who end up actually performing many of the important protocol treatment procedures. This is equivalent to, a hospital hiring an apprentice construction laborer to assist in administering anesthesia to patients during surgical operations. Obviously some patients will never wake up, while others will endure unwanted surgery pain. In both instances, the anesthesia administration fails.

Over application of poison gas during fumigation, does indeed effectively kill all the termites, but it also highly increases the risk of poisoning the occupants within days of re-entering the structure treated. Keep in mind, there is no antidote for gas poisoning and it often results in death. Likewise, if the amount of fumigate used is less than the amount labeled as needed, the treatment will not be 100% effective.

In most cases, fumigation clients will never know if their fumigation was successful in eradicating the termites effectively, because the termites not killed, stop feeding on wood and instead feed on the carcasses of the dead. The period of carcass consumption can take months, and during that time, there is no longer any wood fecal matter being excreted at areas of prior infestation to indicate an active infestation. Upon completion of the colony carcass consumption, a wood diet will resume and the colony will thrive to reestablish itself.
