What You Need to Know About BMSB Treatment

In order to protect Australia’s food suppliers, such as farmers as well as other sectors that could be severely impacted by a BMSB invasion, procedures have been put in place. This includes identifying and listing the target risk countries so that importers, port workers, and transporters can be on the lookout for this invasive pest.

Control measures also include targeting any cargo being shipped in from high-risk countries during the BMSB seasonal period. All goods transported in shipping containers into Australia are required to undergo BMSB treatment by an accredited AQIS service provider, Such as Dawson’s Fumigation & Logistics. These operators are fully equipped to handle all BMSB fumigation and treatment requirements according to the government regulations.

In order to comply with the Australian BMSB control procedures, government-approved fumigants must be used which include the required use of Sulfuryl Fluoride. Biosecurity policies, audits and measures must be adhered to by accredited fumigation service providers to keep the BMSB threat under control.
