Don’t Fog in a Fog

There are several things you should do before performing a fogging treatment. If you are experienced at fogging you know it will take some time, preparation, and forethought to do it right. If you are new to fogging, check out this list of things to consider before fogging an area.

  • Determine product to be used (oil- or water based)
  • Read label directions and PPE requirements
  • Be aware of temperature concerns
  • Calibrate fogger
  • Calculate volume of area (L x W x H)
  • Calculate time to treat (delivery rate and volume of space)
  • Use a respirator
  • Evacuate the building
  • Cover aquariums and any food handling surfaces
  • Store or remove food and utensils
  • If using oil based products, cover plants
  • Close and lock doors and windows
  • When using oil-based products, turn off pilot lights, ventilation fans and blowers
    – If treating a potentially hazardous area (flour mill) do not use a gas engine
    – Electric motors must be explosion-proof
  • Open cabinet doors and drawers where target pests are infesting
