Protecting businesses and homes in South Africa from Pests for 50 Years
Rentokil’s Phosphine fumigation treatment is a simple, cost effective method of eliminating insect pests in bulk commodities and can be used as a curative pest control solution.
Phosphine is an accepted treatment for most bulk food produce including cereal, grains, dried fruit, nut, rice, cocoa and coffee beans. It eliminates all life cycle stages of the target insect pest, with all the advantages of being non-tainting and leaving no pesticide residue.
Sufficient time must be allowed for the fumigant to work effectively. The time 'under gas' is referred to as 'exposure period'. When Phosphine is used at ambient South African temperatures, best results are usually achieved in 8 days, and usually slightly longer in the winter season.

The fumigation of commodities like grains and food stuffs (such as rice, cereals, dried fruits, nuts, cocoa beans and coffee beans) can be done by using Phosphine gas and is usually employed against pest insects, such as beetles, mites, moths and weevils.
