What Is A Tent Fumigation?
I am sure that living here in Florida, you have passed by a home that looked like a circus and had gotten a hold of it for some magical performance. Although it may look like the circus got a hold of that home, I can assure you that is not true. The big colorful tent around that home is in place because that home is in the process or recently had a Tent Fumigation. That home had either an infestation of Drywood Termites, Wood Destroying Beetles, Bed Bugs, or a severe Cockroach Infestation. It is called tent fumigation because it has a tent around the home, and a fumigant gas was administered into that home. As the gas fills the cubic footage of that home, the gas cannot escape because of the tent. As the gas pressurizes in the house, it slips through cracks, crevices, and termite-infested locations. It will kill all insects and Wood Destroying Organisms. Tent Fumigation is the only method of insect control that can kill a target insect regardless of its location within a structure. Unlike other treatment methods, tent fumigation uses a gas penetrating every possible structure point. Drywood termites are dubbed the name because, unlike Subterranean termites originating from the ground, drywood termites do not need constant earth contact nor have to return to the ground for moisture. They can extract enough moisture to survive from the wood they inhabit and feed on. Thousands of homes, businesses, and structures are infected/ infested by Drywood termites each year, which can cause thousands of dollars in damage. The longer Termites go untreated in your home, the more damage they cause. Termites are a pest-related concern that should not be taken lightly or ignored. Delaying will cause significant irreversible damage.
How Do I Prepare For A Tent Fumigation?
When preparing for termite treatment or tenting (For Fumigation), some prep work will need to be done by the homeowner.

Exterior Tent Fumigation Prep Work:
A tent Fumigation process can require much homework for a homeowner. One of the most important things that need to be done is trimming back all shrubs around the house so the tarps will fall to the ground. (Hint: Wherever rainwater falls around your home is where the tarps will fall and where we need to work) Water the areas around the house near the structure and all plants surrounding the home. Tent Fumigation gas kills plants, which will help lessen the chance of damage. However, it will not prevent it.
