Orange Oil Termite Treatments

XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus sets the standard for eco-friendly termite treatments. It is one of the most natural termite treatments available, comprised of 95% d-limonese (the citrus oil that is extracted from orange peels). It is injected into wood at the site of a termite colony and instantly kills termites that come in contact with it; in addition, it also kills termites nearby that breath in the fumes. The benefits of orange oil extend beyond the initial treatment since it keeps working for about six months. And because it is an oil-based product, orange oil is absorbed farther into the wood than any other product.

Altriset Termite Treatments

Altriset is a plant-based product used to treat drywood and subterranean termites, formulated according to compounds found in the bark of trees and shrubs of the Ryania plant indigenous to South America. Altriset works in a unique manner, requiring only a low dose to control termites. Termites that come into contact with Altriset are impacted within hours. After initial contact, it slowly passes throughout the colony, causing total colony elimination.

Studies show that a home can be fully protected for years after just one application of Altriset.

When Altriset is applied to the soil around a home, termites come into contact with it as they search for food (your home). Those in contact spread the termiticide to others in the colony. Thus, Altriset fully controls an infestation within three months, and continues to work for at least 9 years.

Unlike baits that can leave gaps, Altriset provides a constant barrier against termites, protecting your home for years after application. Altriset can be applied to exterior soil surrounding a home as well as raw wood in the subarea.

Altriset is the first and only liquid termiticide to be classified as reduced-risk and requires no special safety equipment, represents no health risk to humans or domestic animals when used as directed, and is safe for the environment.

Bora-care Termite Treatments

Bora-care is an extremely effective pretreatment product that prevents drywood termites, subterranean termites, and other wood-destroying pests. It is known for its low environmental impact because it is applied directly onto wooden surfaces and not the soil. Bora-care is absorbed into wood and thus eliminates it as a food source. When ingested, termites are unable to extract nutrients from their food source and subsequently starve to death.

It can be applied to attics and new construction, protecting your home for years to come. In fact, Bora-care is effective for the life of the wood because the active ingredient is a mineral salt and does not break down over time.

There have been over 40 studies proving Bora-care’s ability to protect wood against wood-destroying pests.

Tim-bor Termite Treatments

Tim-bor’s active ingredient is a natural borate mineral salt. This salt is extremely effective in eradicating termites by inhibiting their metabolism, but it is very low risk for humans and other mammals.

This product can be applied directly onto wooden surfaces by brushing, spraying, or as a foam. It penetrates wood and acts as a preservative to protect wood from insects and fungi in crawl spaces, wall voids, and attic spaces. It works effectively for years after application, is virtually odorless, and won’t discolor or stain wooden surfaces.

Termidor Termite Treatments

While it is not a plant-based product, Termidor is an advanced nonrepellent. Termites  contact and ingest this product that they cannot detect, and then they share it with others in the colony. This is know as the transfer effect, as each infected termite unwittingly carries the product to other termites.

Termidor starts working immediately and after treatment and has achieved 100% control of termites in three months or less. It boasts an unrivaled level of efficacy that no other product has yet to achieve.

Homeowners do not need to worry about leaching because it bonds to the soil, and it will not cause harm to plants adjacent to treatment areas.

It can be used to treat both subterranean and drywood termites. Read more about this exceptional product.
