Our Services

Tent Fumigations

Bug Busters offers tent fumigations. The first step is to have the type of insect clearly identified. Amongst other wood borer species, in our common Durban scenario we have dry wood termite / borer or crypto termes brevis. Methyl bromide tent fumigation is the most effective treatment.

The first step is to measure the building to establish the size to be fumigated. The quantity of gas to be introduced is based on the cubic meterage of air space which is to be covered. We then provide you with a quote and on approval of the quote we will schedule a mutually agreed upon date suitable for fumigation.

Tent Fumigation process:

Day 1 – The Tent will be put over your home and gas released.
Day 2 – The tent is removed & aerated
Day 3 – You as owners can re-occupy the home.

The items that may be affected or removed from your home is provided with the quotation.

We will run you through any of your concerns beforehand.
If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call us on 083 280 3662 or 083 781 5886.

Bug Busters fully understands the stress involved in the fumigation and we will be on call for any assistance you and your family might need.
