Protecting businesses and homes in Mozambique from Pests


We have been providing Fumigation services in Moçambique for over 8 years. As World Leaders in Pest Control, we properly train our Service Technicians so that they are able to provide you with an efficient service, whenever you need it.

Fumigation is a recognized method of insect control of stored products, such as beetles, mites and moths. These Insects can infest bulk grains and commodities such as cocoa, rice, nuts and animal feed - along with other raw materials used in the manufacture of food and feed.

This method helps to protect Transport, Manufacturing, Storage, Milling and Agricultural Companies.

Fumigation with Phosphine

Rentokil's Phosphine Fumigation Treatment is a simple, effective and economical method for eliminating Insect Pests in goods and can be used as a curative Pest Control solution.

Treatment of Grains and Stored Food Products

Phosphine Fumigation is an accepted treatment method for most stored food products, including cereals, grains, nuts, nuts, rice, cocoa and coffee beans. Eliminates insects in all their development stages, with the added advantage of not leaving stains or pesticide residues.

Sufficient time must be allowed for the fumigant to act effectively. The time that products are “under the effect of gas” is known as “exposure time”.


Fumigation of Agricultural Goods

Fumigation of Agricultural Goods consists of treating agricultural products using gas, chemicals or another process to eliminate an infestation.

Agricultural commodities can be varied, from grains to tobacco imported or exported from one country to another.

The goods can be inside a container, or in warehouses.

Container Fumigation

Container Fumigation is the treatment of a commodity or the container itself to eliminate the risk of Pests such as Insects in Stored Products entering or leaving the country.

A container usually has two sizes:

  • 20 'and 40' containers (although there are also 10 ', 45' containers as well as the so-called “High Cube”).”). 
  • Most containers are 8.6 'tall, while the "High Cube" is 9.6' tall.

Container Fumigation Solutions

The two main ways of fumigating containers are:

  • Pressure Drop - Pressure Drop Fumigation involves testing the pressure of the container to a certain value. If the container maintains this value for the duration, then the container is classified as being “gas-proof” and as such, it can be fumigated without being covered with a tarpaulin that provides a seal for the fumigation (verification carried out by the customer ).
  • Fumigation with plastic film - Fumigation with plastic film occurs when there is a pressure drop in the container when subjected to the pressure test. The container is covered with plastic film for gas-proof fumigation and “snaked” with sand at the edges, in order to achieve and maintain a gas-tight seal.

Silos Fumigation

Empty Silos Fumigation is an economical method for treating insects that infest Stored Products, and is also a viable alternative to Container Fumigation.

The use of the Rentokil Silos Fumigation Service can help your Company to comply with the strict Food Law.


Main Benefits of Silos Fumigation

Most empty Silos Fumigations are made to save time and money, as it prepares the silo for a Pest-free condition, at a relatively low cost, when compared to Container Fumigation.

Silos Pressure Test

The silo must comply with protocols similar to those for pressure drop for container fumigation, so that the treatment within the silo is appropriate.

A Pressure Test in a Silo does not necessarily have to be done every time the Silo is fumigated, but it is recommended that it be inspected every time it is used for this purpose, as well as that it be tested under pressure every 6 months or every time changes are made to it.

Controlled Atmosphere Technology

The Controlled Atmosphere Technology - CAT (Controlled Atmosphere Technology) - is a specialized Pest Control treatment to protect articles of high historical or artistic value, which may be at risk of Infestation of any type of Insect.

The treatment is carried out within a sealed environment of the CAT bubble, which is specially developed to contain the objects that will be treated therein. The bubble is filled with nitrogen and carbon dioxide, which will effectively eradicate all stages of development of the insect in question (including eggs and larvae).

Completely different from all other types of pest treatment, the Controlled Atmosphere Technology is a completely safe and clean treatment, which leaves objects disinfected, immaculate and without residues of any kind.


  • Pesticide free
  • Absolutely natural and effective treatment to protect valuables
  • Eliminates all stages of insect development (including insects that are difficult to treat)
  • Mobile system, used on your premises
  • Disinfested objects can be used immediately after treatment

This method can be used in a number of sectors of activity:

  • Museums
  • Art galleries
  • Art Houses
  • Art Collections
  • Antiques
  • Files
  • Libraries
  • Tapestries

Heat Treatment

The Rentokil Heat Treatment - Entotherm - is a pest control method free of pesticides and effective against insects, namely bedbugs and which is based on the application of heat.

Entotherm was awarded the “Best Business Award for Best Innovation” in the private sector.

Developed in partnership with “Revival Environmental”, this innovative heat treatment is revolutionizing the way the Industry deals with Bed Bugs and other Insects.

Entotherm can reach all infested areas without causing structural or manufacturing damage to the site. 

How Heat Treatment Works

Heat Treatment eliminates Insects in all their stages of development - eliminating eggs, larvae and adult Insects in one treatment.

With the heat, the insects' spiracles will open and the fats in their exoskeleton will start to melt, which will lead to the loss of water and nutrients and, consequently, to their death.
