Containers loaded with wood logs often require quarantine treatment before export. This is necessary to kill insects on the trunks and under the bark.
The only permitted method is fumigation with PROFUME (Sulfuryl difluoride). This fumigation results in killing all life stages of these insects.
Fumigation is an exceptional aspect of Pest control. These treatments may only be carried out by recognised companies with highly-educated employees. EWS has a lot of experience in fumigation and has several trained and experienced ‘fumigation managers’ in several European countries. This makes EWS Fumigation a professional and reliable partner for all your fumigation.
We are active in the large seaports of Belgium and the Netherlands. We are also glad to review your requests for inland fumigation or fumigation in other European countries.
EWS Fumigation has two (2) personal fumigation locations for the fumigation of wood logs. Below you can read more about both locations.
In Antwerp, EWS cooperates with KatoenNatie. A new fumigation terminal was recently opened at kaai 1510 (Antwerp linkeroever).
