Types of Fumigants

The deployment of each fumigant is site specific due to the different properties and behaviour of each gas. There are 2 common registered fumigants used in Malaysia, namely Phosphine Gas and Methyl Bromide.

  • Phospine Gas (Magnesium Phosphide and Aluminium Phosphide)

    A common fumigant used to control stored product insects. Besides treating infested grains, cereals and flours, it is also the preferred fumigant to eliminate insects that infest tobacco leaves in storage such as cigarette beetle (Lasioderma serricorne).

  • Methyl Bromide

    The preferred fumigant over others in quarantine fumigation due to its quick kill and deep penetration properties into commodities. This controlled fumigant, under Critical Use Exemption (CUE), is restricted to quarantine pre-shipment service.
