IFC Fumigation Overview

Fumigations are highly specialized treatments that employ the power of gas formulations in sufficient concentration to effectively eliminate target pests. Fumigants possess “unique properties and capabilities that permit use in numerous situations where other forms of control are not feasible or practical” (FAO 1989). Individual gas molecules can penetrate into and back out of treated materials, cracks and crevices or other pest harborage areas.

All fumigants available for use in the food industry face heavy regulation to help ensure their safety. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) classifies these pesticides as Restricted Use Pesticides (RUP’s); only state certified pesticide applicators may apply fumigants. EPA product labeling contains additional requirements for use including the advanced development of a Fumigation Management Plan. Product labeling is considered the law and must be followed.
