    Fumigation can use smoke, but it is using smoke in a specific way: filling a building with smoke (or poison gas) to kill bugs and other pests (rats) that cannot be reached in other ways, because they hide behind walls.

    Fumigation is a noun for an activity (fumigating). Smoke is a general term for....um, smoke.
