A specialist fumigation treatment exclusive to Rentokil in the UK, ProFume is a gas treatment with the active ingredient of Sulfuryl Fluoride which is effective in eliminating all life stages of Stored Product Insects (SPIs) and wood-boring insect infestations. It is also suitable for treating bulk cargos for Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs (BMSB).
This gaseous pesticide is ideal against pest insects such as beetles, weevils, mites and moths and other SPIs infesting process machinery as well as Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs in bulk cargos, that require treatment before they can be imported into locations such as Australia. Effective in buildings such as food processing facilities, cereal grain mills, grain stores, food or feed storage warehouses, ProFume works exceptionally well against infestations within the fabric, or structure of buildings.
Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs are voracious feeders that in large numbers can seriously damage important agricultural fruit and vegetable crops. The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) has brought in seasonal legislation measures that require - all target high risk break bulk cargo, to be treated offshore and importers must ensure that seasonal BMSB import conditions are complied with before importing goods shipped as sea cargo from target risk countries. If untreated the sea cargo will be prevented from discharge/unloading.
Rentokil’s ProFume fumigation is an effective and offically recognised treatment under AQIS (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service) for pre-shipment fumigation of break bulk cargo. AQIS rules state that where pre-shipment is required, it must be completed by an AQIS accredited treatment provider.
Rentokil’s ProFume gas has proved successful in cereal mills, bakeries, confectionery, break bulk cargos, animal feed mills, grain and seed storage facilities and some museum artifacts.
The fumigant however, does not have label approval in the UK to fumigate 'commodities'. This means all raw materials and finished goods must be removed from the vicinity before the ‘empty’ structure or process machinery can be treated. ProFume fumigation treatment only requires a short closure time (compared to other fumigant services) of up to 48 hours to completion, minimizing the impact on businesses.
Applying ProFume gas to a heated building further improves penetrative qualities of the solution, reducing the amount of ProFume required to eliminate pest insects such as the confused flour beetle, grain weevil and mill moths.
