Control Pests Before You Export
Every day billions of dollars of goods are shipped from port to port around the world.
A healthy percentage of those shipments have the potential to carry harmful, damaging pests. Whether it’s grain, wood, or even clothing, shipped items are one of the primary ways new pests can cross borders.
Boecker® is among one of the first companies in the region to successfully implement Heat Treatment applications for general pest control. Additionally, our pest management team meets compliance regulations for the ISPM 15 standard for the wood packaging material of exported goods.
BOECKER® ISPM-15 PEST MANAGEMENT
The International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No.15 (ISPM 15) is an International Phytosanitary Measure developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) that “directly addresses the need to treat wood materials of a thickness greater than 6mm, used to ship products between countries.” These guidelines for regulating wood packaging material were designed to protect international trade.
WHAT IS HEAT TREATMENT?
Heat Treatment programmes were developed to implement a quality control programme for the official labelling of heat treated wood packaging material. Heat Treatment is a safe and effective chemical-free method of pest control that’s useful against most types of insects, including wood-boring insects. Treatment involves applying a targeted application of heat. It eliminates all life stages of insects in just one treatment (i.e. egg, larva, etc.). Heat Treatment is also effective for removing molds and pathogens.
This form of pest management treatment can be safely applied to a wide range of items, goods, and commodities. Best of all, Heat Treatment complies with ISPM 15. The official ISPM 15 mark signifies compliance with the ISPM 15 standard.
