One solution. More application options.

Label treatment options include tarp or tape and seal to treat an entire structure. Fumigation of household contents only — bed bugs for example — can be done using a dedicated fumigation chamber or using a stationary cargo truck, enclosed trailer or moving pod.

More than 3 million structures, including homes, hotels, historic landmarks, museums, cathedrals, rare book libraries, scientific and research laboratories, and even ships, have been protected from woodborers (drywood termites) since 1961, making the active ingredient in ProFume the preferred treatment.

Target Sites

When pests infest commercial structures and residential households, they pose a health threat and affect quality of life. The active ingredient in ProFume® fumigant has been the leading brand (Vikane® fumigant) in whole-structure termite fumigation in the United States for more than 55 years. It is proven to eliminate wood-boring beetles, woodborers (drywood termites), cockroaches, rodents, bed bugs and other residential pests with a single treatment. (Note that geckos are not a target pest and may survive a fumigation, but that does not indicate the treatment was not successful against the target pest.)

Target Pests

ProFume is labeled to control a range of difficult-to-control structural pests. The active ingredient penetrates wood to eliminate all live stages of wood-boring beetles and woodborer colonies (drywood termites), which can live entirely in structural wood that is inaccessible to inspection or insecticide treatments.

For bed bugs, it controls those resistent to other insecticides and the 1.9x dosage rate eliminates all life stages (including eggs), which if not controlled, can lead to a population rebound. ProFume also is a one-and-done treatment for cockroaches, spiders and rodents.

Termites and Bed Bugs

Drywood termites

Drywood termites (Cryptotermes brevis, Cryptotermes cavifrons, Kalotermes approximates, Incistermes, etc.)

Subterranean termites

Subterranean termites (Coptotermes formosanus, Reticulitermes)
