Tent Fumigation is a highly efficient method to exterminate drywood termites, bed bugs, and powder post beetles. The process involves enclosing the targeted area within an airtight tent and introducing Vikone gas to eliminate all the insects present in a 10-inch solid beam of wood. As a result, tenting is currently the most potent treatment available for pest control.


At East Coast Pest Control, we recognize that your property is a valuable investment, and we are committed to providing solutions for your structural fumigation requirements.


Tent Fumigation


In South Florida, we enjoy warm weather for most of the year, making it an ideal place to reside. However, some individuals may have concerns about tent fumigation, a pest control method that we highly recommend. We want to reassure you that tent fumigation is a highly effective and safe way to manage pests. Although preparation is required for the interior and exterior of the structure, and you will need to vacate the premises for two nights, the inconvenience is well worth it. Tent fumigation utilizes the gas Vikone to control targeted pests, which is a residue-free and lightweight gas that is considered safe for use. When you return to your home, there is no need to clean or wipe down any surfaces. Overall, tent fumigation is a very safe and effective treatment method for termites and other pests.


What Does Fumigation Entail?


Have you ever witnessed a house enclosed in a sizable tent? If you have, then you are acquainted with the concept of structural fumigation. The purpose of the substantial tent is to facilitate the utilization of specific chemicals called fumigants to effectively manage an active infestation of pests within any structure. Fumigation stands as a rapid and highly effective method for addressing a preexisting infestation. It holds significant importance for property managers, condominium associations, and homeowners alike, as it can rescue a building from gradual internal deterioration caused by pests.


What Are the Reasons for East Coast Pest Control's Use of Tenting or Fumigation?


Here are a couple of reasons:


  • Tenting or fumigation is necessary for East Coast Pest Control to swiftly eradicate infestations and prevent further damage to buildings. This approach saves both time and money in the long term.
  • The tenting process associated with fumigation is highly effective in addressing issues in specific areas that are infested with termites and other targeted pests.
  • Fumigations have the ability to penetrate even the tiniest cracks and inaccessible spaces within a building, where sprays, dust, powders, and aerosols cannot effectively reach.


Additional Details


The process commonly known as fumigation is referred to as "tenting." Heavy-duty custom tarps are used to cover the entire property and secured tightly with large clamps. These specialized tarps create a seal to contain the fumigants within the treatment area. After approximately 2-3 days, your home will be safe to enter.


Tenting is the most effective method for eliminating drywood termites, which can cause significant damage to your valuable building materials. The region of South Florida is known for being a habitat for various unwanted pests. If left untreated, termites, in particular, can rapidly destroy your home. Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, and Miami, with their year-round warm climate, are particularly attractive to termites.


Our skilled technicians are highly knowledgeable about the latest and most advanced fumigation techniques. They will keep you informed at every step of the process, ensuring that you, as a homeowner or property manager, complete all necessary preparations.
