Fumigation and Venting of Shipping Containers
fumigation and shipping containers
Essex and Suffolk Pest Solutions are experts in the fumigation and venting of shipping containers. Our technicians are fully trained in fumigation and hold the relevant BPCA module for shipping containers. We are able to carry out work across Essex, Suffolk and beyond, including the ports of Ipswich, Felixstowe, Harwich, Tilbury and London Gateway.

Many food commodities, and other goods such as furniture, timber and basket-ware, are routinely fumigated using phosphine gas.

Fumigation is used to control a wide range of insect pests and their eggs to prevent contamination and the possible spread of disease prior to distribution and packing of goods. For example, Stored Product Insects (SPIs) such as mites, moths, beetles and weevils can infest foodstuffs including nuts, rice, dried fruit, pasta, grain and animal feed – along with other raw materials used within food and feed manufacture.

We are able to organise;

  • fumigation of containers
  • venting of containers
  • gas checking of containers for phosphine
  • issue of a ‘Clearance Certificate’

Fumigation of your cargo containers is important in order to prevent the cross-border transportation of pests, disease and contaminants.

Don’t let your cargo spread pests and disease. Call us today on 01473 328092.
