Central States Fumigation & Services provides services from grain quality management to pest control programs to fumigation of grain elevators and processing plants.
In 2006, the company introduced one of its manufactured products – KILLZ-ALL 60® aluminum phosphide insecticide fumigant supplied as tablets and pellets.
“The KILLZ-ALL 60 fumigant is used to protect stored commodities from damage by insects and for other types of fumigations, such as oceangoing vessels and barges,” says Roger Sanborn, founder and president.
• Tablets weigh approximately 3g, release 1g of phosphine gas, and are packaged in resealable aluminum flasks containing 500 tablets.
• Pellets weigh approximately 0.6g, release 0.2g of phosphine gas, and are packaged in resealable flasks containing 2,500 pellets.
• Upon exposure to air, KILLZ-ALL 60 pellets and tablets begin to react with atmospheric moisture to produce phosphine gas.
• Pellets and tablets are supplied in gas-tight containers, with unlimited shelf life, as long as the packaging is intact.
Note: KILLZ-ALL is a restricted use pesticide due to acute inhalation toxicity of highly toxic phosphine gas. For retail sales to certified applicators only. For use by certified applicators or persons under their direct supervision and only for those uses covered by the certified applicator’s certification or the label.
