Commodity Fumigation

Commodity Fumigation

Commodity fumigation is the treatment of the product by either a gas, chemical, heat or other quarantine processes to eliminate the pest infestation. It is imperative therefore, to understand, what is meant by commodity as it may be described as anything from grain to personal effects imported or exported from one country to another.

The commodity may be a crate, boxes, pallets (LCL – limited container load), shipping container (FCL – full container load), silo, vehicle or ship. The commonly used gases are methyl bromide and phosphine (aluminium and magnesium phosphite).

Other treatments undertaken are Dipping; Washing; Freezing and Sterilisation.
