Field Fumigation for Managing Vertebrate Pests | Michigan DARD Approved
Instructor: Stephen Vantassel
Fumigants are pesticides that convert to a toxic gas when introduced to the atmosphere. Fumigants are used to control pests in two main areas: structures, such as homes and grain bins, and burrows, such as those created by prairie dogs, skunks, or woodchucks. This presentation will focus on the use of fumigants to effectively control burrowing animals in the field.
After completing this course participants will be able to:
- Recognize the various types of fumigation devices and products used to control vertebrate pests in the field
- Understand the advantages and disadvantages of fumigation as a control method
- Know the best practices for effective use of fumigants
- Abide by the label restrictions to protect non-targets and applicators from harm
