Termite Fumigation – Sulphoric-Fluoride termite fumigation is one of the commonest ways of destroying the growth of termites. Sulphoric-fluoride fumigation is done when other forms of termite fumigation methods have failed. This type of termite fumigation will destroy and remove above-ground infestations on a wood structure. Suphoric-Fluoride fumigation processes normally take between 24-48 hours and must be handled by professionals or licensed fumigators.
After the termite fumigation of the entire property with a calculated amount of the chemical agent, the building will be cleared and aired out. The building is thereafter tested with a monitoring device to ascertain the level of safety of re-occupancy.
Sulfuryl-Fluoride Termite Fumigation
Sulphuric-Fluoride termite fumigation has a lot of advantages. Sulphuric-fluoride gas fumigants are colourless and odourless, it penetrates structural materials such as wood with ease and it is non-corrosive, non-flammable ,non-staining, and non-irritating.
Termite fumigation is one of the oldest traditional ways of destroying termites, it can kill termites for more than 80 days but does not kill termites for a longer period of time. Termite fumigation should be done regularly in order to keep termite colonies in extinction, if not done regularly, termites may thrive and you may have to repeat the fumigation processes over and over again.
Termite baits and methyl-bromide solutions can also be used in termite fumigation processes. They do not leave residual chemicals in the soil and can effectively destroy termite colonies when applied properly.

Termite fumigation should not be applied indiscriminately. Pets, infants and kids should be taken away from fumigation sites, home plants, chimney caps, antennas, and medicinals must also be taken away from the fumigation sites while fences without gates will have some boards removed so as to allow the fumigation tarps reach the ground. A typical single-home family will need around 15-18 ounces/1,000 cubit foot of termite fumigant at a time, anything higher than these could be hazardous.
