The stink bug (brown stink bug/wants) is an insect that causes flinching damage to various crops, trees and fruits. To prevent this from occurring, Australia has introduced strict requirements that this insect must be treated in the country of shipment, so-called quarantine requirements BMSB.

Which goods

The goods and products that qualify for this are diverse. For example, they include treatment (whether or not transported in shipping containers) of cars, machinery, machine parts, steel, stone, cement, grouts, etc.

When not to treat?

Below 10 degrees celcius it is not possible to carry out Phosphine or BMSB fumigation. Below 5 degrees celcius, this refers to fumigation with sulfuryl fluoride.
