is a process intended to prevent the introduction and
spread of plant/plant product pests. Following the guidelines
set out by ISPM 15, Fumichem is accredited by AVA to carry
out fumigation using Methyl Bromide gas.
Methyl bromide gas is the preferred fumigant in most
countries due to its good penetrating ability, rapid
action and toxicity to a wide range of pests and insects.
Due to its lethality to humans, methyl bromide gas can
only be applied by licensed fumigators who know the
necessary precautionary measures to take to ensure that
the process is performed safely.
