Pre-Construction and Structural Fumigation Notification System

The Texas Department of Agriculture’s (TDA) Structural Pest Control Service introduces a new electronic system for commercial preconstruction termite treatment and structural fumigation notifications.  This electronic notification system utilizes a form that can be completed using either a computer or a smart phone to alert TDA of a pending fumigation or preconstruction termite treatment. TDA officials are optimistic about this new system, as the feedback from the pilot program participants has been positive.    

This system is a new option for pest control operators for notifying TDA beginning on September 14, 2015 and will eventually take the place of phone, fax and email notifications.  

We hope that you find this electronic notification system helpful. Should you have any questions or need help with filling out the notification form, please do not hesitate to contact us at 866-918-4481.

NEW - Submit notification for commercial preconstruction treatment 

NEW - Submit notification for structural fumigations


Reminder to Certified Applicators with the Structural Fumigation Category

Remember that all applicators certified in the Structural Fumigation category must conduct and/or perform four hours of training each year along with a minimum of one CEU per year in structural fumigation.  TDA inspectors are checking these training records during inspections even if applicators maintain the category but do not actually conduct structural fumigations.  These training records must be maintained by the business for two years.
