Chicken House Fumigation Delaware and Maryland
NOTE: The eggs and meat are not harmed directly by bed bugs. However, there can be indirect harm such as anemia from blood loss.

Why fumigate chicken houses for bed bugs?

  • Fumigation is proven to be 100% effective against all stages of bed bug life in a single application.
  • There is no resistance of bed bugs to the fumigant, unlike the resistance they now have to many commonly applied pesticides.
  • The fumigant penetrates into cracks and crevices, any other hiding places, even into machinery to eliminate the pests.
  • The fumigant completely dissipates to leave no surface residue, odor or film behind.
  • Clutter is not a concern with a treatment.
  • There is no need to clean the fumigant off anything after treatment. Just clean out dead bed bugs.

Protecting your workers, chickens and profits

  • Bed bugs are increasingly showing up in poultry houses, especially broiler breeder houses.
  • Heavy infestations of bed bugs in chicken houses may lead to excessive feather loss, cloacal irritation, lesions on the breast and legs, and even anemia.
  • Production may be decreased, feed consumption may increase, and egg spots from bed bug fecal deposits may be observed, potentially diminishing the value of the eggs and the profitability of the chickens.
  • Many areas of the broiler breeder facility may serve as shelter and hiding places for bed bugs: cracks and crevices, corners, and nest boxes. Feeders and waterers made of wooden slats provide excellent shelter for bed bugs. Also, the corners of galvanized metal nest boxes and cardboard boxes used to transport eggs are typical sites for bed bugs.
  • Spraying alone won’t get to all bed bug hiding places. Fumigation will get there and be effective.
  • Bed bugs are hitch-hikers. Make sure you or your workers don’t transport boxes, bags, purses, bottles, or other items from an infested house to a non-infested house. This may require changing clothes and shoes each time after working in infested areas.Treat all houses at the same time.
  • Helps prevent you/workers from bringing bedbugs home.
