Fumigation is the most common method used for pest control and elimination. It involves the use of pesticides or pest retardants in the form of gas, referred to as a fumigant, pest poison in a residential area, the complex business space or the public that has been filled.
Fumigation is also used in agriculture or grains results to prevent infected soil or during the import and export of goods to get rid of insects, worms and other organisms may be transported from place to place.
While the excessive use of chemicals in any form should be avoided because it can endanger for human life or the building's structural, fumigation process is not completely effective in eliminating pests, it only prevents the pests make their presence once again in the same area.

Fumigation process is usually done in stages. As a first step, the entire area that requires fumigation sealed or closed. Time, the area is fumigated, the chemicals are released in a confined space that may house, office, warehouse or storage complexes, cellar, container cargo ships, etc. In the third stage, a fumigant is allowed to completely fill the enclosed space and kill pests itself (woodborers, termites) or infestations of pests (eggs, larvae). Finally, the area is well ventilated with fresh air and sunshine so that no trace of chemical or gas is left behind.
