Innovative and unique treatments that resolve pest problems effectively
Rentokil’s Phosphine fumigation treatment is a simple, cost effective method of eliminating insect pests in bulk commodities and can be used as a curative pest control solution.
The fumigation of commodities like grains and food stuffs (such as rice, cereals, dried fruits, nuts, cocoa beans and coffee beans) can be done by using Phosphine gas and is usually employed against pest insects, such as beetles, mites, moths and weevils.
Phosphine is an accepted treatment for most bulk food produce including cereal, grains, dried fruit, nut, rice, cocoa and coffee beans. It eliminates all life cycle stages of the target insect pest, with all the advantages of being non-tainting and leaving no pesticide residues.
Sufficient time must be allowed for the fumigant to work effectively. The time 'under gas' is referred to as 'exposure period'. When Phosphine is used at ambient UK temperatures, best results are usually achieved in 14 days.
Transportation containers imported into the UK from around the world can be conveniently fumigated aboard ship or in port. The flexible treatment option proves effective by permeating through the container and eliminating all pest insects within shipment.
