The Active Ingredient — D-Limonene

The active ingredient in our orange oil termite treatment is d-limonene. In fact, our solution contains 95% d-limonene. If you’ve heard of this compound before, then you probably already understand that it is a naturally occurring terpene found in the peel of an orange. D-limonene is commonly used in food, cleaning products, cosmetics, and is also a natural pesticide. D-limonene is an environmentally-safe, pet-friendly, sustainable, naturally occurring compound that we utilize to safely and effectively rid your home of a termite infestation. 

How the Orange Oil Is Applied

Before we apply the orange oil termite treatment, we perform a thorough inspection to find out where the termites are nesting and to find the heart of the colony. Once we have this information, we decide which areas would be most beneficial for us to treat. 

To apply the orange oil, we drill small holes through your walls into the wood where the termites have created their home. After we inject the orange oil, we patch and repair any holes that may have occurred during drilling so that your home will look just like it did before we performed the injections. 

How the Orange Oil Works

Once the orange oil termite treatment has been injected into the wood in your home, it seeps through the porous cells of the wood and spreads throughout in all directions from the injection site. Because the termite treatment is oil based, it penetrates deep into the wood, killing every termite that it comes into contact with. The fumes from the orange oil also kill any nearby termites quite quickly. Our orange oil termite treatment remains active for six weeks to ensure that every termite and egg is destroyed. 

No Need to Evacuate Your Home

When you choose our XT-2000 Orange Oil termite treatment, you will not be required to evacuate your home. Not only is this incredibly convenient compared to traditional termite fumigation methods, but it also saves you money on lodging, animal sheltering, and other expenses. 

Safe Termite Treatment for Pets

Our XT-2000 Orange Oil termite treatment does not require you to remove your pets from your home like a fumigation would. Since we are simply injecting a concentrated form of oil extracted from orange peels into your walls and then sealing the holes back up — there is very little risk to your pets or family.
