Fumigation Checklist

1. It is the responsibility of the HOMEOWNER, OCCUPANT, OR HOMEOWNER’S AGENT to have all items on this checklist completed BEFORE the fumigation crew arrives. Failure to prepare
the property, return signed forms, and provide keys may postpone the fumigation and may incur trip fees.
2. SIGN AND RETURN ALL FORMS REQUIRED FOR YOUR FUMIGATION AND PROVIDE KEY ARRANGMENTS WITH OFFICE TO ALL LOCKED AREAS WITHIN THE STRUCTURE.
3. ALL PEOPLE and all living things, such as plants and pets must be removed from the structure to be fumigated. PETS must be removed from the structure and the yard. This includes cats,
caged birds, reptiles, rabbits, fish, ect. Special provisions must be made for aquariums, check with office for further direction.
4. Remove all mattresses enveloped in plastic covers from the structure (i.e. baby mattresses) or remove plastic covers and open or remove zippered clothing bags.

Please see PROVIDED BAGGING INSTRUCTIONS OR REMOVE FROM THE STRUCTURE. Food not properly bagged will incur a charge of $25/bag.
6. It is unnecessary to wash dishes, linens, clothing, etc. after fumigation. Vikane is a gas and will dissipate from the structure and leave no residual behind.

process. Structures without electricity will postpone the fumigation and may incur trip fees.

AND TRUNK OPEN. Locked automobiles or boats will postpone the fumigation and may incur trip fees.

Fumigation Disclaimer (Terms, Conditions, and Liabilities)

A. We will call you the first business night before your fumigation with the estimated time of arrival for your fumigation. Our crews must fumigate several structures each day. Therefore, any time
of day for the fumigation crews to arrive is an approximate time only. ALL APPROXIMATE TIMES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE.
B. We recommend for the HOMEOWNER, OCCUPANT, OR HOMEOWNER’S AGENT to be present upon the fumigation crew arrival of the fumigation. If someone is not available to meet the
crews, provide access, and walk the property, make arrangements with regard to keys and necessary access to all areas of the structure as indicated above. IN THE CASE OF INCLEMENT
WEATHER CONDITIONS (STRONG WINDS, RAIN, ECT.), THE JOB MAY HAVE TO BE POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE FOR THE SAFETY OF THE FUMIGATORS.
C. In the event that climbing plants, fences, trellises and vines must be detached from the building, it will be the HOMEOWNER, OCCUPANT, OR HOMEOWNER’S AGENT’s responsibility to
remove them. In the event that the HOMEOWNER, OCCUPANT, OR HOMEOWNER’S AGENT fails to do this, we will assume no liability to these plants. A plant release of liability may be
required.
D. Fences and gates must be unlocked and in working order. We assume no liability for fences and gates.
E. Fumigations where masking tape is used and where the paint surface is old or oxidized will result in some peeling of paint. Some painted surfaces will chip or peel if the undercoating was not
properly applied even though these surfaces appear to be in good condition (the tape we will use will not peel paint that is properly applied), therefore we assume no liability for such damage.
F. ROOF SURFACES AND PERIMETER AREAS OF THE BUILDING MUST BE WALKED UPON AND DAMAGE CAN/WILL OCCUR. Although the utmost care will be exercised this company
cannot assume liability for such damage or consequential damage that can/will occur to roof or roof coverings, gutters, electrical wiring, patio and awning covers, solar panels, plumbing,
landscaping, antennas, satellite dishes or chimneys. Additional releases may be required.
G. Dirt is used from planters to seal areas at the bottom of the tarp and in some cases grass will be removed to obtain this dirt seal. This is done at the discretion of the fumigation crew at the
time of the fumigation. The fumigation crew will return the dirt to areas if was removed from to the best of their ability. We encourage your presence during this time.
H. We do not provide on-site security during the fumigation procedure or after the tent(s) or seals are removed. Our insurance does not cover malicious vandalism or theft. If the HOMEOWNER,
OCCUPANT, OR HOMEOWNER’S AGENT wish for security of the fumigated property, it will be at their expense for such arrangements and is not the liability of this company.
I. All exterior doors (including water heater cabinet) to the structure being fumigated must be locked. If no locking devices exist, state law required that we nail these doors shut. In the event that
the HOMEOWNER, OCCUPANT, OR HOMEOWNER’S AGENT has not provided necessary locks, it is understood that nailing is required by the fumigation crew and we will not assume any
liability for damage to the door or door jamb. Nailing or locking is required by the regulatory agencies to prevent any person from being accidently trapped inside.
J. Any jobs that required re-scheduling or that warrant re-fumigation, A-1 Bonded Termite or A-1 Fumigation will not be responsible for lodging for occupants, tenants, or pets.
K. The HOMEOWNER, OCCUPANT, OR HOMEOWNER’S AGENT has identified all connecting structure on the property (i.e. hollow walls, breezeways, rooflines, ducting, central vacuums,
abutments, ect.) and has made notations of such on the Occupants Notice of Pesticide Disclosure.
