About Fumigation

“Fumigation” is actually a different industry to the Pest Management Industry. The word “Fumigation” is often incorrectly used in pest management discussions. For example a homeowner may say that they “have had their house fumigated for cockroaches”. While this is common language, it is also completely incorrect and misleading.
Fumigation involves using lethal gasses in enclosed spaces for exotic and quarantine pests and requires special training and licences. As it is significantly different to general pest and termite work, licenced pest managers are usually not trained fumigators.

MPL Training Centre Pty Ltd does not provide this type of rare and specialised training. If you are working in the “Fumigation” industry and require “Fumigation” licencing, please seek out an Registered Training Organisation who specialises in “Fumigation” Training and Assessment.
