Microwave technology for killing termites has been in use for over 25 years. Hi-Tech’s microwave technology, clean and efficient, was tested in 1993 by the state of California and had a 97.4% efficacy rate on the structure that was treated. Since that time, we have continued to upgrade and improve our technology. In 2012, we were happy to release our latest state-registered model, the XTerminator 4.0™.
Microwave technology requires:
- NO tenting
- NO moving
- NO removal of plants, plastics or furs
- NO removal of food, cosmetics or medications
- NO landscaping or roof damage
- NO disconnecting computer, security systems or antennas
- NO special tree or shrub trimming
How It Works
Simply stated, microwave energy converts to heat that kills termites infesting the wood. Heat is generated by a magnetron mounted on a tripod for easy access to wall voids. The magnatron’s funnel-shaped wave guide directs microwaves to the infested area, penetrating the wood and killing termites.
Killing drywood and dampwood termites using Hi-Tech’s innovative microwave technology, in conjunction with state-approved chemicals like Termidor and Premise, is a clean, low toxic, efficient solution. This could be the perfect answer for your termite problem.
Whether Hi- Tech fumigates or uses the microwave system, our two-year, full-structure service contract is the same. Based upon the nature and extent of termite infestation, Hi-Tech’s advanced technology could be the answer to your termite problems.
