Fumigants

How to distinguish original products from fake prdoucts? Please find here an overview.

As this is hazardous waste, the local and national regulations in terms of disposal must be followed.

Here the use of gas-tight fumigation sheets is recommended. These can be used for fumigations of silos, containers, stacks, etc.

After the fumigated object is released gas-free (the concentration must be under the Occupational exposure limit regulated by the country), for every goods the withholding period set has to be kept.

A Monitoring can be done with Phermone traps. They contain a chemical sexual attractant substance, from which the males of beetles and moths are attracted.

A good fumigation is also characterised by a constant monitoring. The concentration in the fumigated object should be controlled regularly. For this different measuring systems are available.

Most goods related to Biocide or Plant Protection Legislation can be treated with fumigants. In case of one or more fumigant being authorised for use in your country, you can find the applications in the registration and/or on the label.

After a fumigation you don’t have a permanent prtection, a new infestation, f. e. by immigration of crawling or flying pests is possible.

No, only fumigants like phosphine can penetrate the treated goods sufficiently and kill all development stadiums of insects.

Yes, all development stadiums will be killed with phosphine. However some active development stadiums, like larvaes and adult insects are more sensitive to phosphine and can be killed easier than the inactive ones (eggs and pupae).

People who have a qualification according to national legislation/law in the country where it is intended to be used can buy fumigants.

Rodenticides

Always place the product containing Aluminiumphosphide below the soil surface, inside the rodent´s burrows. Afterwards, it is mandatory due to security and efficacy reasons to properly seal all entrances. The emission of phosphine will start shortly after getting into contact with the humid air.

Always place the product containing Zincphosphide below the soil surface, inside the rodent´s galleries. The product will have to be ingested and emit the deadly poison phosphine in reaction with gastric acid.

It is recommended to control in the beginning every 2-3 days and afterwards on a weekly basis.

Place bait stations and traps where there are signs of heavy rodent activity (feces, chew marks, urine spots, hair, scratching and/or squeaking sounds at night). Placement will usually be next to a wall and out of reach for children, pets and non-target animals. Rats and mice have limited vision so they always follow lines such as walls.

Bait stations are compulsory in the European Union and recommended outside Europe for the safe use of anticoagulant rodenticide and are the ideal device to add safety to rodent control. They are extremely durable, tamper resistant and can be anchored to ensure they will not be picked up or moved.

Difenacoum and Brodifacoum are single feed active substances that will kill also warfarin-resistant rats and mice in one feeding. However, they may continue to consume bait for several days afterwards and bait supply should be continuous to ensure all rodents have an opportunity to feed.

The amount of anticoagulant product that is required to kill a rat or mouse is quite minimal and therefore not very toxic to larger animals. An animal like a dog would likely have to eat dozens of mice or rats in a short period of time to ingest enough of the active ingredient to make them sick. The dead bodies become quickly very unappealing but it is important to pick up dead mice/rats immediately to avoid secondary poisoning.

Our products can be safely handled but always wash your hands with soap and water after handling rodent baits.

No, because rats and mice can smell the bait despite the bag and will have no problem eating through.

Rodents that have ingested a lethal dose of single feed anticoagulant bait will die in 4-6 days. Our products are all single feed anticoagulant.
