How long after fumigation is it safe?

The reason tent fumigation takes several days to perform lies in the fact that the preparation and tenting process takes skill and precise attention to detail to meet the safety standards professional pest control companies such as Ohio Pest Control requires to perform tent fumigations across the midwest. After fumigation, technicians will aerate structures measuring the amount of fumigant inside the structure for at least 24 hours. Technicians determine when it is safe for humans and pets to safely re-enter fumigated structures.

In cases of multiple drywood termite infestations, tent fumigation may be the only option.

However, in the past few years, improved baiting and repellant technology has evolved to the point that no tent fumigation is used more widely than tent fumigation, due to the extensive preparation involved before, during, and after the tenting process and the health risks involved to people, pets, and the planet.
