 Structural fumigation to control pest species is very technical process that must be performed safely anc accurately. Fumigators in Florida are therefore required to be certified by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to be allowed to perform a fumigation. Because regulations are complex and extensive, The Florida Fumigation Manual has been prepared in collaboration with the FDACS, professionals from the industry and faculties at the University of Florida, so that individuals who wish to take the state examination can prepare accordingly. Because Federal and State regulations change over time, this document will be updated as necessary.
