2017 Fumigation Boot Camp

Fumigation Boot Camp 2017  Fumigation Boot Camp 2017 hands On   

In February, Food Protection Alliance team members gathered for their annual internal Fumigation Boot Camp in sunny Phoenix, AZ.  Collectively, between the 25 attendees, there were 200+ years of experience and a diversity of expertise.  The first day included “Hands On” training at a facility that was able to provide stations for silo fumigation, container treatment, fogging and monitoring. We continued the next day learning out of the sun and into the classroom.  Here, we heard on fumigation updates, safety, stewardship training, and the treatment and identification of Psocids.  An attendee stated that “This fumigation boot camp was a very informative training session with new and innovative information.”

Fumigation is a tool and capability that is being challenged by some in the food industry.  We at Food Protection Alliance (FPA) view it as a capability that we must always stay up to date on for when and if needed as it has proven to be the solution to problems we face.  We continue to expand our knowledge and expertise on the additional capabilities of proactive pest management, alternatives to fumigation, and organic treatments.

If you have questions in regards to fumigation or any capabilities that FPA has, we look forward to hearing from you 877-FPA-3334 or you can visit us at
