XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ – An Effective Organic Termite Destroyer

Many organic pesticides use alternative methods to kill pests. XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ uses a low impact and proven method to not only kill termites but to also help prevent their “occupation” of your home. Let’s have a closer look at how XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ works.

Termites Have Specific Needs

Orange oil is known as an effective organic pesticide against termites thanks to its active ingredient — d-limonene, which is a chemical that comes from the rind of oranges. It works by taking advantage of a symbiotic relationship between the termite and its gut bacteria. Orange oil itself does not kill termites, but it does kill the gut bacteria that termites depend on to break down wood into food. XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ has orange oil so it is effective against termites. Without the beneficial gut bacteria, termites cannot break down wood into food. The short story is that they die.

XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ Makes Your Home Inhospitable to Termites

XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ goes a little bit further to help protect homes from termites. Termites that live in wood need a fairly consistent environment. The wood needs to hold about 8 percent moisture for termites to survive. XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ is also a wicking agent. It moves moisture out of wood so that the wood becomes inhospitable to termites. Oil floats on water because it has a denser molecular structure. When applied to wood, the dense arrangement of molecules pushes water out of the wood. When the moisture content drops, termites die. That is the second way that XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ works to kill termites.

The following video shows how the wicking agent works:

XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ Is Also A Preventative

What is important to point out is that pesticides do not help prevent termite infestations. They only kill termites. They also leave behind a nasty set of toxins that are easy to transfer to pets and children. D-limonene, the active ingredient in XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™, is least toxic and low impact. It is the oil itself that is the preventative. When termite colonies disperse, the new queen flies out to find a new home. If the wood content of your home is not suitable for termite survival, they move on towards a new target. By being a wicking agent, XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ keeps wood in a state that is not hospitable for termites and the chances of an infestation decrease significantly. In short, XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ not only kills existing termites, but also helps to prevent new infestations. It offers both an offense and a defense.

The Benefits of XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™

There are many benefits of using XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ as a treatment for termites. Those include:

  • No toxic residue
  • Effectively kills termites
  • Is a preventative against termite infestation
  • Works against all wood boring insects — carpenter ants, wood boring beetles, carpenter bees, etc.
  • 100 percent renewable and sustainable
  • Includes a whole structure warranty
  • No tenting required so there’s no hassle in moving out
  • Very cost-effective and affordable

Traditional termite treatment is expensive and very inconvenient. The easy to use XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus™ is effective against termites and without all of the expense and hassle of traditional termite treatment.

Winter Is Coming – How Termites Behave In Colder Weather

Termites are creatures that are sensitive to things like temperature and moisture. They prefer a habitat that is moist, warm, and dark. Termites approach homes by digging tunnels through the soil; the entrances they make into a home needs to maintain a certain warmth and moisture. This is the primary purpose of what are known as termite tubes. Termites that are already in the soil when the temperatures become colder need to burrow down deeper so that they can maintain their desired temperature because termites do not hibernate in the winter. During the colder months, their level of activity in the soil is reduced greatly, but they do not die or hibernate. However, if there is an established colony in a warm home, and they are able to maintain a connection to the soil that is moist, their activity can remain steady throughout the winter months.

Homeowners might feel a false sense of security, and think that their homes are safe throughout the colder months, but can continue to slowly eat away at the wooden parts in a building while never aware of the activity. While it is true that they will be less likely to dig tunnels into your house during the winter months, the frozen soil that is stopping them will not stay frozen forever. If however, you already have an infestation, the termites can remain active regardless of the time of year. If termites are found swarming inside during the spring months, that is strong indicator of them having been in the building throughout the previous winter.

Therefore, don’t relax your vigilance when the weather has turned cold. Just because you can’t see the termites, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t there. If you suspect you might have termites, make an appointment for a pest control company to come out and perform a termite inspection. Be proactive. Call in a termite company that uses our Orange Oil Plus today to make sure that your home is free from the little pests – and best of all, you won’t have to leave your home since our Orange Oil Plus is the least toxic treatment and can be done without tenting!

What To Look For In The Upcoming Termite Swarm Season In Southern California

termites

From late summer to early fall in Southern California, local winged termites fly from their nests to mate and search for new nest sites and food sources. These insects emerge from cracks in buildings and holes in the soil through swarm holes made by the worker termites. Swarming is a natural part of the termite lifestyle, and it helps give a clear indication there is termite activity in or around your home.

Drywood termites go through three life stages, from egg, nymph, and to adult. Approximately every four years, three-fourths of the adults in an established colony grow wings and leave. Looking very much like winged ants, most termite swarms usually occur from dusk or during the night after a rainfall and can be spotted around light sources or illuminated windows. There are a few species that swarm during the day. Once a male and female termite mate and become a new royal couple, a new colony is formed.

When this phenomenon occurs around the foundation or inside your home, it’s a very good indication you have a termite infestation. Swarmers found outside near old wood, tree stumps or railroad ties may not be a clear indication you have a problem yet. You may not be able to distinguish on your own if these insects have invaded your home, so it’s a good idea to call a licensed inspector to inspect.

Drywood termites are subterranean, meaning they live in the ground and build mud tunnels inside your home and throughout the walls. Because they work from the inside out, they can cause extensive damage before you even take notice. In fact, you could have termites invading your home for several years before they are discovered. Termites prefer to devour the inside sections of the wood, leaving the harder shell that has a honey-comb layered hollow area. Often, they seem to appear overnight, causing damage to base and crown moldings and around electrical switches.

Fortunately, these termites are often treated with baits instead of tenting your home, and by using our least toxic methods of extermination, you can stay in your home while it is being treated. Derived from orange rinds, our products leave no toxic residue behind, reduces risks from chemical exposure and it works as well as other traditional treatment methods.
