Most companies will follow the same general treatment method when applying Orange Oil.
STEP 1: INSPECTION
A skilled inspector starts by looking for the classic signs of Drywood Termite activity. Damaged wood, droppings, and swarming may all be signs of an infestation.
STEP 2: IDENTIFICATION
There are currently two predominant methods of identification; using a high-tech optical scope or using a Termatrac™ device.
STEP 3: APPLICATION
Once areas of infestation have been found, application of Orange Oil can begin. Technicians will inject Orange Oil directly into the infested wood using the drill and treat method.
STEP 4: TREATMENT
Orange Oil will saturate through the surrounding wood within a treated area leaving nowhere for termites to hide. Termites and their eggs will be killed on contact.
THE TERMATRAC™ DIFFERENCE
Termatrac™ is currently the most advanced technology on the market for the identification of drywood termites within a home giving the ability to peer behind walls without drilling.
Termatrac™ devices contain sensors that measure the following:
Nearly all pests, termites and other common wood destroying organisms need moisture and high humidity to survive and multiply. The Moisture Sensor function built into the Termatrac™ enables the operator to easily identify areas of excess moisture as a possible risk area for termites.
Additionally, congregations of termites will generate heat. The Remote Thermal Sensor with Laser Guide built into the Termatrac™ detects termite risk areas by identifying areas of increased heat in the structure.
Upon identifying a termite risk area using the Moisture Sensor and/or Thermal Sensor, the Termatrac™ switches over to Radar mode. The unit is placed against the suspect surface area so the Termite Detection Radar can detect movement of termites. The Termatrac™ will display the detection and activity level of any termites that are present.
