Fumigation Services

In Singapore, many companies and businesses make use of fumigation as an effective means to eradicate pests. Homeowners who suspect a pest infestation but are unable to locate the pest in the home, or suspect multiple pests in their home, would also employ the use of fumigation to rid the home of all possible pests, all in one fell swoop. Fumigation in Singapore is closely monitored by bodies such as the National Environment Agency (NEA), the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) and the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).

Fumigation may also be conducted in homes to rid them of pests. This is especially useful when the location of the pest’s breeding ground cannot be easily determined. Releasing the fumigant throughout the home would ensure that all corners of the home are covered by the fumigant so that all pests in all stages of their life-cycle can be thoroughly destroyed. The home has to be evacuated first to ensure that humans and pets do not get into contact with the highly toxic fumigant. Then, the windows, doors and crevices are sealed and locked before the fumigant is released. The house is left to ‘soak’ in the fumigant for a substantial amount of time before it is declared safe and the occupants are allowed to return to their home to resume their activities.

Benefits of Fumigation

Fumigation is one of the most common methods use for fast and effective pest extermination. It is conducted by expelling a gas called a ‘fumigant’ at high concentrations in an enclosed area in hopes of suffocating the pests. While fumigants are also harmful to humans, careful use of the fumigants during the fumigation process should be ensured to prevent risking the health of humans as well. Fumigation allows the user to destroy all life stages of a pest and to eliminate many pests at one time, such as:

  • mosquitoes
  • fleas
  • cockroaches
  • termites
  • bed bugs; and even
  • rodents.

Fumigation may be conducted on ships, vessels, cargo and containers to ensure that the contents are free of pests and harmful bacteria that might be transmitted from one area to another during transportation. Ships and vessels are fumigated to get rid of pests that may be infested in them. The areas are vacated before the fumigant is dispatched and all areas, including crevices and cracks, are sealed to prevent the fumigant from escaping. Re-entry is then allowed after proper ventilation and it is declared safe for entrance. Cargo and containers may be fumigated and stored for a sufficient period of time before it is ventilated. They are then sealed and allowed to be dispatched.
