 Hi frameworks,

    Kind regards - does any one have specific information on dealing with
infestations and chemical fumigation with vikane / sulfuryl flouride.

We have the following material coming out of an apartment that has bed bugs:

  - binders with slides and negatives plastic sheet protectors.
  - 16mm film reels
  - various photographic prints both color and black and white (c-prints,
cibachromes, silver gelatin).

We are already planning to fumigate books and papers with vikane which is
used by many institutions and leaves no residue.

Does vikane fumigation cause any damage in anyone's experience or any
