When this is not possible, you need to secure items such as fruits, vegetables, spices, cereal, pasta, pet food, butter, and other similar foods.

Use Nylon Polymer Bags

In order to store these items properly to ensure they are safe to use or consume after the treatment, you must use nylon polymer bags that protect against harmful fumigation. It is essential to understand that the contents must be double bagged as this is the only way to ensure reliable protection.

Let Some Items Be

With a termite treatment around the corner and many items left in your home, you are likely concerned about concerned about what to do with the items that have not been put into bags or removed.

For the most part, items such as cosmetics, unopened tubes of toothpaste, unopened alcohol, and unopened canned goods are protected enough on their own to resist the fumigation.

Additionally, if your refrigerator has an ice maker, make sure to turn this off before the treatment.
