Our proven tent fumigation process includes:
Covering your home with tarps: After your home has been prepared for fumigation, our licensed fumigators and crew members will tent it with large tarps, get the interior ready and seal all the tarps
Posting permit notices: We obtain permits from the Florida Department of Agriculture and post these notices in conspicuous places as required by law
Releasing warning agents: After we have tented your home, we will release a warning agent (tear gas) to ensure your home is vacated of all people and pets prior to fumigation
Locking down: We will secure all the doors of your home with additional locking devices designed to prevent anyone other than our licensed fumigators from entering your home
Posting warning signs: We will post danger signs to warn people to stay out of your home
Keeping the keys: We will keep the keys to your property to ensure that nobody enters your home before it’s safe, as required by law
Fumigating: We introduce the Vikane gas fumigant, which has been proven for more than 40 years to effectively remove termite problems in more than 2 million structures. The fumigant penetrates deep into the wood to completely eliminate all the drywood termites
Aerating and certifying: After the fumigation is complete, our licensed fumigators will aerate your property and use sophisticated Interscam machines to verify that your home is completely aerated. After your home has received our clean bill of health, our fumigators will certify it so you and your loved ones can re-enter with confidence

Drywood Termites: Drywood Termites get their name from the fact that they live in dry wood. There are hundreds of species of Drywood Termites. The United States only have a few. There are the Powderpost termites or more commonly known as "furniture termites". The typical colony of Drywood Termites is relatively small compared to the subterranean termites. There can be multiple colonies in the same house. Unlike the subterranean termites where the colonies live in tubes and huts Drywood Termites live in the wood and tunnel along the grain of the wood. The best way to find these types of termites is to look for their fecal pellets or the fine powdered wood they leave behind.
