How to Navigate Your Way Around Fumigation Terminology?
What does the acronym ULV stand for?
ULV stands for ultra-low volume treatments. Your pest control service will disperse smaller molecules than the conventional sprays used. The result is deeper penetration in hard-to-reach spots. These are not gases and will still leave residue. ULV is ideal for tackling flying and crawling pest infestations.
Why do fumigator companies often talk about fogging?
During fogging, we emit pesticides from machines in a smoke form. This complete pest control method can penetrate crevices and cracks. This convenient pest management method is more effective than sprays.
The effects on pests are devastating. Unlike a ULV treatment, fogging doesn’t leave a residue. This form of pest control is only good for tackling the adult life cycle of insects. Fogging is also well-suited to tackling flying insect challenges.
What is the conventional spray treatment in fumigation used for?
We administer an aerosol treatment through an atomiser nozzle and spray sprays onto surfaces. They then evaporate into the air. This is the most common form of treatment. Spraying is effective when used on walls, furniture, and floors.
