The Organic Answer to Dealing With Termites

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ImproveTips

Fumigating your home or business is a large inconvenience when you consider moving out, toxic gases and possible roof, gutter, solar-panel and satellite-dish damage. During the past year, Akamai Pest Solutions has treated hundreds of homes and some businesses with XT-2000 Orange Oil, and the response has been positive and exciting.

Here are some answers to questions about the treatment process:

Q: Can I stay in my house during treatment?

A:Yes, you can stay in your house.

Q: Is your work warranted?

A: Yes, we offer a two-year, full-structure warranty with annual inspections. Then, the warranty can be extended annually for a fee.

Q: What is the cost compared to fumigating?

A: The cost is competitive, and often-times we are more expensive, but when you add in the move-out costs, we are the same or even less.

Q: What is XT-2000 Orange Oil?

A: Orange oil is made from distilled orange rinds to extract the oil, which is 95 percent pure D-limonene. It’s a renewable resource that is a by-product of orange juice manufacturing.

Q: How does the orange oil work?

A: It is injected into the damaged wood and it wicks through the wood, killing adult termites as well as termite eggs.

Q: Can I get a clearance letter for a real estate transaction with the process?

A:Yes, it’s been accepted as a primary form of treatment for drywood termites.

Q: How do you find all the termites?

A: We provide a thorough inspection, including in attics and crawlspaces.

Q: Do you treat for subterranean termites?

A:Yes, but we use a non-organic material specifically labeled for subterranean termites.
