The proper use of metal phosphide fumigants (Phostoxin®, Fumitoxin®, Magtoxin®)
is vital to the long term viability of these products.

Degesch America, Inc.(DAI) takes product stewardship very seriously and offers “End-User” support in a variety of ways.    We try to provide fumigators with the tools necessary to use our products in a safe and efficacious manner to achieve the desired level of insect prevention and control.  Product Stewardship often involves DAI personnel speaking at seminars hosted by private companies and/or governmental agencies.  The upcoming Degesch America, Inc. Recertification School (DAI Recrtification School) is a prime example of the types of training we provide.

DAI has also provided speakers for the recent Bequisa “1º Encontro Bequisa & Fumigadores Porto” held in Brazil, the Superior-Angran “Safe and Effective Fumigations in Real World Situations” seminar held in Puerto Rico, and several Association and State sponsored programs throughout the United States.  Topics included in these recent seminars have included: “Understanding HazCom/SDS”, “J-System Low Air Flow Fumigation Method”, “Spot Fumigation”, “Fumigation Management Plans”, “Respiratory Protection & Gas Detection” and many others.
