Container fumigation

With container fumigation, the raw material or the container itself is treated to prevent insects or diseases from entering America or from spreading.

AAA Termites and Pest Control offer you the fumigation of your food raw materials directly in the 20/40 foot container (TEU / FEU) with phosphorus hydrogen at your location or one of the America container terminals or freight centres. In the case of import containers or other fumigated transport units that you would like to open or unload for control purposes or there is no clear release certificate from the distributor, we will take over the necessary measurements, venting and clearing for you.

In addition to successful fumigation, 

AAA Termites and Pest Control service also includes prior official registration and deregistration and the issuing of release protocols.

Container fumigation solutions

There are two ways to fumigate containers:

  • Pressure drop – To be allowed to carry out toxic fumigation in a container, the container must be checked for gas tightness. If it cannot hold the gas for the specified period, it must be sealed off or covered with a tarpaulin.
  • Fumigation with a tarpaulin – Fumigation with a canvas is selected for procedures without a leak test or if the container does not pass the pressure test. The container is covered with a gas-tight fumigation tarpaulin, and the edges are covered with sand so that a gas barrier is formed.
