What Are Orange Oil Termite Treatments
Orange oil is used for treating Drywood termites, carpenter ants, and wood-boring beetles. Orange oil is not effective against subterranean termites. Orange oil is an extract of orange rinds used in many cleaning solutions and even food additives. The active ingredient in orange oil-based termite treatments is D-limonene. Orange oil kills termites on contact by breaking down their exoskeletons and destroying their eggs. While orange oil is considered a low-toxicity treatment, it is not harmless; it should not be ingested, and exposure to the oil or strong fumes can irritate the skin and eyes. Those with allergy sensitivities may experience lung irritation and other symptoms with exposure. Improper applications of orange oil have even started fires as the product is flammable once wicked into wood! For environmentally sensitive customers who do not want to use pesticides, we offer orange oil termite treatments. However, we offer several other orange oil treatment alternatives which offer superior termite control.
Orange Oil - Organic Termite Control Treatment
Orange Oil Termite Inspection
The most common no tent, no move out organic termite control solution is orange oil. Quality orange oil treatments start with a quality inspection using high-tech optical scopes to determine the extent of the infestation. A branch 3 licensed License To Kill termite technician will search wall voids and other inaccessible areas suspected of pest activity using a boroscope to identify areas with termite activity. A boroscope is an optical viewing device similar to the cameras used in medical procedures to give doctors a clear view of what is going on inside the body. Instead of looking inside a body, we are looking inside your walls to identify all the areas of termite infestation and treat them with laser-like precision.
Natural Orange Oil Termite Treatment
Once all areas of termite activity have been identified, we precisely drill and treat the infested wood members. We use specially designed tools which allow us to treat most areas of the structure, including attics, wall voids, etc. Orange oil is injected into the drilled holes, where it spreads throughout the wood beams, killing termites and termite eggs on contact. Orange oil has the unique ability to wick through wood via capillary action, traveling through the porous cells in all directions. After treatment, holes are patched and painted, the only evidence left behind is the sweet smell of oranges.
Termite Control Reviews
Amazing service, found some termite damage that should have been treated by another company during escrow. License to Kill came out and did a free inspection and let me know how to handle the situation. They did not take a penny and the other company came out and fixed the damage.
I'm a real estate agent who works with termite companies on a regular basis. Whenever I get to pick who to hire, my choice is always License to Kill!! Their quality of work, attention to detail, and customer service are better than everyone out there! License to Kill does their part in making my real estate transaction smooth! They go above and beyond the rest!
I had subterranean termites under the slab portion of the house. License To Kill was prompt in inspection and met my scheduling needs. Successful work and left the work areas clean. Came back a year later under warranty to supplement and took care of another location unrelated to the first treatment. Cost of work was reasonable.
I hired them to get rid of my pest issues and not only did they provide exceptional service, but they also repaired the damage the termites did to my patio. They were friendly and professional. The price is what I expected to pay for the level of service they provided.
License To Kill was very easy to work with and they returned phone calls and were very polite on the phone. We had a urgent request for License To Kill to do a termite clearance on a property that was scheduled to close and they made it happen. Thank you License To Kill for working with us in a time crunch and your staff was very professional.
