Q: Is orange oil pricier than fumigation?

A: Fumigation varies in price based on the company and the property’s location. Orange oil is expensive, since the process is more detailed and labor intensive. But after factoring in the cost of moving out, potential home damage, hiring a security guard, etc., Akamai Pest Solutions’ services cost the same or even less.

Q: Do I have to move out during the treatment?

A: Since the orange oil is injected directly into the wood and is totally organic, homeowners, children and pets can stay at home during treatment, which usually takes one day or less.

Q: Is there a warranty for orange oil treatments?

A: Yes, in most cases the company can offer a full structure warranty for two years. It follows up with annual inspections for any new infestations, which are then treated free of charge.
