How Much do You Know About Fumigation?


Some people may think that there is nothing to fumigating their own home. They set up a couple of bug bombs, leave the house for a few hours, and if that doesn’t work they just do it again and again. But sometimes there is far more to fumigating than that. How much do you know about fumigating your own home? Take our quiz to find out.

  4. True or False: You can tent-fumigate a home in under an hour.



  1. True: Fleas are the one pest that DIY bug bombs can help eradicate on a personal level. However, if you have other pests, it may be better to hire a professional.
  2. False: Tent-level fumigation is a type of house fumigating that utilizes chemicals that can be dangerous or even lethal. It can only be performed by a professional.
  3. False: While tent-level fumigation is very strong and effective for some types of infestation it will not get rid of all termites, wood beetles, or subterranean termites. These pests require their own treatment.
