Australia and New Zealand, two of Philadelphia's key trade partners, have aggressive programs in place to keep the BMSB from entering these countries.

Although methyl bromide is an acceptable application, Ecolab has chosen to use sulfuryl fluoride exclusively for BMSB and works with Holt Logistics at a designated near-dock facility at PhilaPort to conduct the treatments, "which has substantially expanded the ability to treat and move products from the Philly market to Australia and New Zealand," Freudenberg said.

According to Freudenberg and Achzet, Ecolab has been at the forefront of responding to outbreaks on commercial cargo vessels coming to the United States using the company's proprietary products and processes.
