TREATMENT PROCESS

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:

MOISTURE

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.

HEAT

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.

RADAR

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.
