How Our Termite Control Solutions Work
Hawaii homeowners and businesses are well aware of the severe damage Formosan termites can inflict. Unique soil types and weather conditions in Hawaii make termite control in the islands more difficult than in other areas of the world. Termidor provides 100% control of Formosan (ground) termites for 5 years with one application. Termidor is applied where the termites are located, and provides 100% protection in as little as 3 months.
The latest in ground termite elimination and control, a Sentricon baiting system with a regular maintenance contract is highly effective. Each station for the SENTRICON System featuring Recruit HD is baited during installation and remains baited as long as a service contract is maintained. The SENTRICON System is environmentally responsible and is the only termite control product ever to receive the Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge Award, which recognizes technical innovation that incorporates the principles of green chemistry into design, manufacture and use.
Tent Fumigation is the only process that has been proven to be 100% effective for the eradication of Drywood termites when performed properly. Due to our warm and humid climate, Hawaii is highly susceptible to Drywood termite activity. When you see termite droppings (fecal pellets), you know your problems have begun with Drywood termites. The tent fumigation process involves securely enclosing the home in special tarps, and then injecting Vikane gas into the structure. Vikane is a colorless, odorless, non-sustaining, non-corrosive and non-flammable gas. This fumigant penetrates deep into wood to eliminate Dry wood termites. When the tents are removed, Vikane dissipates into the atmosphere and does not deplete the ozone.
Pure Orange Oil
Although tent fumigation is a proven method of termite treatment, there are many advantages to using Pure Orange Oil as an alternative. Orange Oil is created by
distilling orange rinds and extracting the oil, resulting in a less toxic and low impact product. The active ingredient in Pure Orange Oil is D-limonene, a chemical commonly known for its orange fragrance in food manufacturing and cleaning products. This natural oil is safe for family and pets, during application there is no need to vacate your residence, bag food and consumables, or worry about the hassles of fumigation. Pure Orange Oil has the ability to saturate through porous wood, traveling through the cells to eliminate the colony, leaving behind a fresh orange scent.
