ISPM-15 stands for International Standard for Phyto Sanitary Measures

Since March 2006 a new Regulation has been applied to all the Wood packaging material from third world countries. The new requirement apply to all wood packaging material imported into the EU, USA, Canada, Japan, China, etc. They are a part of the so-called phyto sanitary measures. These contain stipulations for the import of plant products. Wood packaging material is considered as plant product. The purpose of the new legislation is to prevent organisms harmful to plants, such as insects, Fungi, bacteria or viruses from reaching and spreading from one country to the another. The changes in the European Union Measures are just the beginning of regulatory changes that will affect every shipper which export products on wooden pallets. Fukuza Dudu Pest Control (Kenya) has become a pioneer by addressing these types of issues early in their developmental stages to insure that their customers receive a seamless solution.

One of the main requirements is that wood packaging material has to go through heat treatment that involves a minimum wood core temperature of 56 degrees Celsius for a minimum of 30 minutes (Heat treatment HT) .Alternatively , it may be fumigated with Methyl Bromide (Methyl Bromide Fumigation MB) .Moreover , the treated wood must bear a mark with the unique code assigned to treatment provider from the Regulating Authority of Exporting Country (called IPPO)

Heat Treatment

Solid Wood Packaging Material that is used with Export consignments is treated before it is exported to avoid the transmission of the Exotic pests from one country to the other. solution.

Heat Treatment is the most widely used method to comply with ISPM-15 norms . It is Eco-friendly , safe and quick method. No Chemicals are involved in this process

Heat treatment very simply put is using controlled atmosphere (temperature and Humidity) inside a chamber to raise the core temperature of the wood to 56 degrees Celsius for 30 min. This Process essentially and effectively kills all life form of Bugs, Termites or Borers that may have nested themselves within the wood packaging material.

Once the ISPM-15 standard is Implemented , the custom Inspection authorities at the ports of entry of imported goods will verify and confirm if the Wood Packaging Material (WPM) is properly marked with the ISPM-15 official stamp and that the unique codes of the stamp are recorded on the official database of the Regulating authority.

We have necessary approvals and certifications (including the unique code) required to provide Heat Treatment Services.

Unique codes such as the one on left are provided by the Dept of Plant Protection and Quarantine, Govt of Kenya.

We have the ability to process hundreds of pallets per ISPM-15 standards everyday in our state of the art kiln facility.

One of the limitation of Heat treatment is that unlike Fumigation , The Wood Packaging material has to be taken to Heat treatment Service provider’s facility. Thus the logistics cost may go up.

Commercial pest control services in Kenya

Our services for the Household and Commercial segment include the following

  • Integrated Pest Management
  • Cockroach Control
  • Termite Control
  • Wood Borer Treatment
  • Integrated Pest Management

“Pesticides are more dangerous and hazardeous than Pests”. Indiscriminate usage of lethal pesticides may be efficient in eliminating pest instantaneously but the damage caused to our health and our ecological system is irreparable. The new environmentally responsible approach to pest control with less reliance on pesticide use is known as integrated pest management(IPM). It involves the safe prevention, reduction or elimination of unwanted organisms. It takes advantage of all pest management options such as biological (e.g growth regulators or parasites), mechanical (e.g tarps or exclusion), cultural (e.g focusing on better sanitation to prevent or remove pest-conducive conditions), or chemical. By combining multiple control measures versus relying on the pesticide alone, IPM can reduce pesticide use and thus reduce the potential for harmful exposure to human health and the environment. Each IPM program is specifically designed to meet the individual needs of the area serviced.

Therefore Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program focuses on eliminating pests, their breeding and harborage areas and their entry points to any facility. This provides maximum effectiveness with minimal chemical treatment.

Cockroach Control

“ There is never just one cockroach in the kitchen”. Yes it is true that where there is one cockroach there are others. If you find one in your house/apartment then you will want to take steps to eliminate all the potential ones lurking in their dark hiding places

The presence of Cockroaches in the kitchen is often detected by their damage or by the fecal matter called frass, they deposit.These signs can help in diagnosing , a cockroach problem.

The size and shape of fecal droppings also indicates the kind of cockroach species involved. We use Pesticides which falls under the Category of “Third Generation” , to which cockroaches and other bugs have not gone immune.

Latest Technology (Gel Application)

In the recent past a new technique has been developed which involves controlling the Major cockroach population within the premises by applying a gel like substance. Unlike in the past, it does not require spraying those pungent smell insecticides. The biggest advantage is that there is no need to empty out the whole kitchen and create a mess. So there’s minimal disruption of the home or work place.

The mode of action involves applying low dosages of newly developed molecule called “Fipronil” at strategic location and hide-out places inside the house .This contains a Bait to which cockroaches get attracted and feed on it. Once a critical numbers of cockroaches have accepted this bait, they start contaminating other cockroaches and a cascading effect starts taking place and gradually the whole population of cockroach gets infected by the toxic ingredient present in the bait and ultimately gets eliminated.

The gel is odorless . It can be safely applied to sensitive areas such as electrical console boxes, kitchen appliances, electronic Gadgets, behind the refrigerator etc. on which those conventional insecticide cannot be sprayed. Moreover It is safe, non-irritating and presents no hazard to the living environment.

However as an supplement to the above treatment , the drains, Shaft areas, Sanitary inlets and outlets, Manholes and other utility areas of the building outside the house are sprayed using safe and effective Insecticides.

The scientific study shows , if applied Judiciously and in a appropriate manner, about 70% of cockroach population gets controlled in about a weeks time. The remaining population gets controlled in three to four weeks. For treating a typical house of about 900 sq. ft. of area it just takes about half an hours time.

Termite Management

Subterranean termites are social insects which live in colonies in the ground. They build vertical tunnels that look like mud tubes (known as shelter tubes) above ground level in the search of food. Wood is made up of Cellulosic material which is the favorite food of Sub-terranean termites. Termites can also damage material of organic origin with cellulosic base such as paper, cardboard, fabric, furniture, etc. However termites are known for their voracious tendencies and can damage even non-cellulosic substances also in search of the food and shelter.

Because subterranean termites will die if exposed to air for an extended period of time, therefore they need constant moisture source for their survival . The mud tunnels provide protection from the open air and direct sunlight, allowing workers to forage for the food. Subterranean termites can form runways in the form of tunnels through cracks in concrete. Therefore even RCC structures are not exempt from these termites.

The basic purpose of creating a chemical barrier in the soil , along the building is interrupt the runways of termites that root through the termite colony in the soil . Once a continuous barrier is created ,they cannot safely return to their central colony nest through the chemically treated soil. It is an established fact that Termites are compelled to return every few days to their central colony nest in the ground to obtain moisture essential for their survival and to feed and groom the nymphs (young termites), the king, queen and other members of the colony.

Thus the successful installation of a chemical barrier into the soil requires lot of expertise and specialized equipment to form a complete and continuous barrier to protect the premises from a termite entry and future infestation.

To control the termites in any premises the following two options are available for our Clients:

1. One Year Maintenance Contract:(Short term Solution)
One-year maintenance contract with regular check-up.

2.Three Years Termite -Proofing Contract:(Long term Solution)
Enter into a Three Years contract for your entire Premise with an extensive treatment with Warranty.
One Year Maintenance Contract against termites is a Short term Solution which has specifically designed for customers who are either likely to move to other premises .

Contract with a professional pest control company to periodically inspect your home. This will help detect termite activity and allow for an early and proper action.

If you detect a termite shelter tube or any other form of Termite infestation it is better to go for a solution by a professional pest control company than to handle it on your own.

Damp walls and Roof or plumbing leaks can allow termites to survive above ground in a house. These should be corrected as soon as possible. Subterranean termites are capable of building a temporary nest in a ceiling or wall cavity where there is a regular moisture source , say from a leaking shower , broken roof tiles, faulty masonry or plumbing.

Wood Borer Treatment

Wood borers(Powder Post Beetles) are tiny beetles whose larva feed extensively on the wood. The adults while emerging make tiny pin size holes on the surface of wooden furniture or fixture. The fine yellowish coloured powder starts appearing from these tiny holes. This indicates the destructive activity of borers deep inside the core of the wood as these are internal feeders. They feed on the cell contents of the sapwood. While feeding they make tunnels and pupate within the wood. Borers or Powder Post Beetles attack partially or fully seasoned wood with 10-15% moisture. (i.e almost dry condition).

The beetles are more active from March-April and become less active from November onwards.

There are several methods and options for control of wood borers . Selecting the best option depends on a number of factors, such as the Gravity of infestation, the location of infestation, potential for
reinfestation, and cost of treatment. Wood borers and Powder Post Beetles damage wood slowly so there is plenty of time to make a decision on control.
As a treatment wood preservative chemicals are required to be injected into these tiny exit holes with the help of syringe and larvae is targeted as only larvae is responsible for the damage to the wood.
The wood surface is also applied with chemicals having petroleum base.
