ENY-2044: Termite Prevention and Control

Figure 25. Fumigation is highly effective against drywood termites. Structures are tented and tightly sealed to hold the fumigant (active ingredient: sulfuryl fluoride). It is critical that no one enter the structure because he gas is highly toxic. Once properly aerated and cleared using sensitive instrumentation, the home can be entered again.
