AWM Oversees Fumigation of Old Globe Theatre

Agriculture, Weights and Measures oversaw the structural fumigation of the landmark Old Globe Theatre on Jan. 1. Each year, more than 250,000 people attend productions at the theater. AWM Pesticide Regulation staff and a representative from Dow AgroSciences, which manufactured the structural fumigant used, were on site as the fumigant was applied. AWM is committed to building beneficial relationships with industry stakeholders, such as the fumigation company that undertook this massive project, and also ensuring the safe and legal use of pesticides. Through exceptional communication and cooperation, this complex and high-profile fumigation was conducted safely and in compliance with applicable pesticide laws and regulations.
