Two of the most widely used fumigants on a global basis are methyl bromide and phosphine, both of which are highly toxic with increasing reports of pest resistance, and increasing global biosecurity risk.

Methyl Bromide

  • Highly toxic to humans
  • A broad spectrum pesticide having non-specific toxicity to a wide range of invertebrates
  • Since 1 January 2005, all uses have been prohibited, other than for certified quarantine and pre-shipment, approved feedstock applications, or approved under critical use exemptions
  • Ozone depleting

Phosphine

  • Highly toxic to humans if exposure occurs
  • High security risk chemical
  • More than 75% of Australian grain currently treated by Phosphine which is also relied on for fumigation of other commodities
  • Increasing reports of pest resistance of excessive reliance and improper application

ETHYL FORMATE. A SUPERIOR SOLUTION !

  • Non-toxic to humans
  • Highly toxic to insects that commonly infest stored commodities
  • Breaks down into naturally occurring products and doesn’t leave a residue
