Heat treatment is the most secure way to comply with ISPM 15. Fumigation using the chemical methyl bromide is another approach for treating wood products against pests. Because of its toxicity, the EPA strongly recommends that the chemical methyl bromide be phased out in the United States. Furthermore, scientific evidence suggests that methyl bromide contributes considerably to the loss of the Earth's stratospheric ozone layer. Because of the risks associated with this chemical technique, we believe that heat treating pallets is a much safer choice.
