Flick fumigation services have been going from strength to strength in New Zealand in 2020; supporting a community newly alert to the importance of safety and health through hygiene and quality pest control.

As an island state, New Zealand is heavily dependent on import and export for many goods. However, vessels and cargo loads can be carriers of major pests and germs, which can endanger both the community and local agriculture. These include termites, ants, weevils, mites, moths and mosquitoes – also known as ‘Stored Product Insects (SPIs).

Due to this, New Zealand has strict biosecurity measures in place. All companies operating in and out of the country must ensure that they follow stringent sanitation and storage guidelines and declare any biosecurity risks.

Fumigation of containers, silos and facilities is also an essential treatment.

What is Fumigation?

Fumigation is the spraying of ‘fumigants’, or pesticide gases, to kill Stored Product Insects. It helps protect businesses in the import/export realm including: 

– Shipping and cargo
– Warehousing
– Milling
– Manufacturing; and
– Agriculture

Flick Anticimex is a leading force in the fumigation industry and is MPI approved to carry out a wide range of fumigation treatments for import/export container loads, ships and silos, as well as onshore facilities. This ensures shipments are transported safely and do not contaminate on reception or transport.

We also carry out our own fumigant gas monitoring rather than using a third party, which means we are flexible and can safeguard facilities on short notice.
