ORANGE OIL

Orange Oil Termite Control an Alternative Termite Solution


Orange oil products contain the active ingredient d-limonene. D-limonene is extracted from the rinds of oranges, and it’s the same chemical found in many household products. Orange oil is also used in the manufacturing of resins, cleaning compounds, and as a fragrance additive in many products. 

The original orange oil's chemical name is XT-2000.

CONS of HALO PRO

The products we use are a combination of Termidor and BoraCare. While these are industry standard products our team uses them with above industry standard training protocols. 

While we recognize the role Orange Oil has played in the industry, its forced chemical companies to develop products that home owners will accept. That to us is a good thing. We simply choose not to use it for the reasons listed.
