And, with our new, innovative termite treatments, you may not even have to leave the comfort of your own home to eradicate the termites in your walls.

Determine the Size of the Infestation
When you have a termite infestation, it is very important to determine the size of the infestation. Larger infestations require more serious treatment options like fumigation, while smaller infestation can be effectively exterminated with some of our alternative termite treatments. When we perform your free termite inspection, one of the things we will consider is the size and maturity of the infestation, so that we can recommend the treatment option that will work best for your specific situation.
Determine Your the Best Treatment
After our initial termite infestation, we will take into consideration many factors including the size of the infestation, the maturity of the infestation, and the location to determine which type of termite treatment will work best for you.
Our XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus termite treatment utilizes a special formula containing d-limonene. This treatment is environmentally-friendly, safe for you, your family, and your pets, and does not require you to leave your home. The orange oil is injected into specific sections of your walls and studs where the termites live and kills termites and eggs on contact. We extract the d-limonene in our solution from orange peels — it doesn’t get much more natural than that when it comes to termite control.
Altriset® is a termite control solution that is sprayed around the foundation of your home. When termites come into contact with the solution, their mouths become paralyzed and they can no longer cause damage to your home. The solution was created based upon a naturally occurring compound found in bark of a tree that grows in South America, which has a similar effect on termites. This termite control product stops further damage and gets the infestation under complete control within three months, and continues to work for nine years or longer.
The XTerminator 4.0™ microwave device is an environmentally-friendly, chemical-free termite control method. It does not require you to vacate your home and is completely safe for you, your family, and your pets. The termite extermination microwave device is directed toward the infested area and when the microwave energy comes into contact with a termite or egg, it converts to heat, killing the termites almost instantly.
Fumigation is an option that is available for severe termite infestations. Fumigation takes a total of three days, while you, your family, and your pets will have to leave your home and stay elsewhere. While this isn’t the most convenient termite control method, it is the most effective for large infestations that can’t be exterminated in any other way. In the event that your home needs to be fumigated, our inspectors can explain the entire procedure, what’s needed from you, and what you should expect from the process. At Hi-Tech Termite Control, we are trained, educated, and experienced in termite fumigation so you can be sure that it will be done safely and effectively.
