Orange Oil Treatments Are Dangerous

Orange oil, also known as citric acid or d-limonene, has become a popular termite treatment in San Diego. A lot of companies advertise that Orange oil is an environmentally responsible substitute fumigation or localized pesticide treatment. While orange oil will eliminate termites, it is also highly flammable, so injecting it into the wood beams around your home may make your home a fire hazard. Orange oil is also irritating to the eyes, nose, throat and lungs.

Orange Oil Treatments Are Dangerous

orange oil unapproved termite treatment san diego

The state of California does not recognize orange oil as a primary Drywood termite control solution.

Orange oil treatments are limited to accessible areas, which allows termites to continue feeding and re-establish themselves after treatment. There are only two approved whole structure treatment methods for the eradication of termites: fumigation and heat.

Orange Oil Is Ineffective

Orange oil biodegrades in 21 days and has no residual value after that time. Due to orange oil’s short life span, any termites that are present 3 weeks after the treatment will continue feeding on your home.

Orange Oil Is Toxic To The Environment

Orange oil is also a major marine pollutant and can lead to water contamination if spilled. License To Kill performs in depth research on all products before they are used.
