Until recently, treating termites was a pretty big task. Exterminators relied on fumigation tents and a powerful blast of chemicals that was both harmful to insects and any other living creature. While tent fumigation still has its applications — especially for termite colonies that have spread throughout the entirety of a home or for termite colonies that are in spaces that are impossible to access otherwise — there are better alternatives to fumigation today. Here at Hi-Tech Termite, we prefer to stick to the alternative treatments that we have developed and utilized over the years. We use three different termite treatments, instead of fumigation — only in the most severe infestations will we recommend fumigation. Here are our alternative termite treatment techniques:

XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus® Treatments

Our orange oil treatments are an excellent alternative to tenting and chemical treatments. Unlike other treatments, we use a natural product, XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus®, which can be injected into wood members throughout the structure of your building or home to treat and kill termites on contact, while providing protection against termites down the road.

The concept behind XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus treatments is simple: the natural orange oil in XT-2000 contains pure d-limonene (a citrus oil and an active ingredient that seeps into wood). Termites that consume d-limonene die off. Plus, termites exposed to d-limonene vapors eventually die off. Best of all, d-limonene remains in the wood in which it is injected, leaving it impervious to termite colonization as long as the product remains active.

What does that mean for you, your family, and your home? You won’t have to tent your home, your family won’t have to vacate the premises, and you’ll see results that provide a lasting impact on your home.
