Fumigation is a pest control method that works best in enclosed spaces. It is effective against all kinds of commercial and storage pests and other annoying critters that stick around stored food, warehouses, and manufacturing plants. Fumigation becomes a necessity when pests take over your building and you don’t want to compromise on hygiene and safety.

At Wercore Pest Control, the fumigation procedure is conducted by certified and well-trained Municipality-approved fumigators in compliance with standard safety protocols. 


Fumigation is a process in which a commodity is treated in a gas-tight enclosure for a certain period of time to eliminate pest infestation without leaving any residual effect. It plays a key role particularly in grain preservation as it controls insects developing inside and outside the grain storage and crawling and hidden pests. Fumigation is one of the most preferred pest control methods in Dubai because of its efficiency in controlling pests inside and outside the air-tight enclosure.

As the best pest control company in Dubai, we have highly trained professionals who know how to handle fumigants that are toxic in nature. They also give all the necessary information about the fumigants so the clients don’t face a problem when using them.


Fumigants are pesticides that are volatile and exert their toxic action as poisonous gases in an enclosed space. We use Aluminium Phosphide and Magnesium Phosphide as our fumigants to eliminate pests from Rice, Wheat, Corn, Oats, Maize, Peanuts, Popcorn, Nuts, Tobacco, Grass seed, etc. Fumigants are available in the form of tablets and granules which can be easily mixed with food products.

Fumigation is a versatile technique that can be applied in a wide range of situations. It should be undertaken only when management is satisfied that a need to carry out pest control exists, that fumigation is the appropriate process and that the fumigation may be safely and effectively carried out in the U.A.E. fumigation of commodities in the export trade is mandatory for quarantine or contractual reasons. Fumigation is useful where a rapid kill of pests is required and for effective removal of pests from structures into which clean commodities are to be brought.

Phosphine Gas (Ph3) Fumigation

Aluminium Phosphide / Magnesium Phosphide is the most commonly used fumigant worldwide when it comes to fumigating stored food products due to its zero residual action. Phosphide fumigants are available in the solid form of tablets, pellets, granules, or plates of different brand names. Phosphine fumigants can be used to eliminate insect infestation in a variety of commodities including animal feed and food ingredients, Corn, Maize, Grass seed, Tobacco, Oats, Peanuts, Pistachios, Popcorn, Wheat, Rice, etc.
All fumigants are highly toxic in nature and require trained personnel for application. Our employees are trained and experienced fumigators who are capable of handling any type of fumigation.


  • The area must be secured and warning signs posted to prevent people from entering the area during fumigation. Because fumigant is a colorless, and highly toxic gas, (a highly irritating substance) is commonly used as a warning agent to clear people from the structure.
  • After fumigation, open all doors and vents to allow as much air circulation as possible to aerate the area.
  • Occupants are not allowed to reenter until the applicator checks are complete. Keep all persons out of the area during fumigation and aeration until the gas detector shows that no fumigant is present. Only then is it safe to enter the area without wearing respiratory protection.


Tarpaulins provide the flexibility to fumigate a range of items. Tarpaulins must be sealed with a tarp to trap gas inside during fumigation. Tarps should be at least 4 mils (0.004 inches) thick and made of gas-impervious polyethylene, vinyl or neoprene-coated nylon, or an equivalent material. Multiple tarps can be joined by overlapping the adjoining edges by at least 12 inches and fastening them with clamps spaced not more than 12 inches apart. Fumigate on an impermeable surface. Concrete paving without cracks or joints is best. If an impermeable floor is not available, place a tarp on the surface, then stack the commodity on top.


Majority of countries will not allow the import of goods if the shipping containers have not been fumigated at the pickup location.

When the cargo is packed, loaded, and ready to be shipped from one location to another, there might be some other “passengers” in the container that no one has invited. You guessed it right – the pests, termites, and many other harmful living organisms that have a real potential to transfer diseases. And that is why it is mandatory in most countries to fumigate the containers before they are loaded on the ship for moving.


Fumigation process may vary in time, depending on what type of gas is used in the dry treatment. Fumigator must advise the appropriate efficacy criteria with the required minimum effective dosage, method of treatment, and exposure time. So, all you need is to hire a professional fumigation service provider.
