Orange Oil Treatments for Termites

At Chem Free Exterminating we believe in offering options for our customers so that we can rid their home of termites in a way that works best for them and their family. In order to do that, we offer several ways to rid your home of termites – from traditional tent fumigations to treatments using XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus. Each method that we offer for exterminating termites has proven effective – but one of the main perks to choosing to treat for termites rather than having a whole home fumigation is that it doesn’t require you or your family or pets to vacate!

What is orange oil and how is it used?

Our technicians are trained and licensed to use XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus to treat for drywood termites by using the scope and inject method. XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ is 95% pure d-limonene, which is the active ingredient in orange oil. It’s unique properties allow it to move effectively through wood reaching termites right where they hide. XT- 2000 Orange Oil is a least toxic, low impact product derived from orange rinds. The orange oil treats your home without the introduction of hybrid chemicals.

Orange oil treatments can be performed as a localized treatment eliminating the Drywood Termites and leaving your home with a citrus smell. The alternative Orange Oil treatments are an effective termite treatment option for smaller areas and those that involve only drywood termites. Drywood termites normally nest and feed in undecayed wood that has low moisture, which is a perfect place in our Southern California climate.

Why choose orange oil over traditional tent fumigation?

It is renewable, pet-friendly, landscape-friendly, affordable, and can be used to treat your home without tenting. No tenting means you do not have to move out of your home for treatment! It is a natural “orange” product that can save you time, money, and hassle. It also comes with a 1 year warranty that applies to your whole home.
