Understanding California Law Regarding Operable Windows During Fumigation

If you’re considering fumigation for termite or pest control, it’s important to understand the California law requirements for operable windows during the process. The law mandates that windows be open at least 3 inches during fumigation. However, certain windows that cannot be accessed and opened without moving furniture, removing nails, or cutting a paint seal can remain closed.

In most cases, ground floor windows on multi-story structures can also be left closed during fumigation. For added security, Tiger Termite Control recommends using window locks or dowels to prevent windows from opening more than 3 inches. This helps to ensure that the fumigation process is effective while still meeting legal requirements.

It’s important to note that the specific requirements for operable windows during fumigation may vary based on your particular property. It’s always best to check with your fumigator regarding the specific requirements for your property.
