As a pest control company here in Santa Clarita, one of the best parts of our job is the satisfaction that comes from having a job where we get to help people.
People call us because they are distressed that they have bed bugs, or they found termites, or they have ants and spiders and we get to see them go from distressed to seeing them very happy and relieved.
One product we love offering to our clients is Orange Oil, which is the most natural way to get rid of termites. It is predominantly used for the kind of termites we have here in Santa Clarita, Drywood Termites.
Before orange oil, pest control companies had to drill holes into the foundation of residents homes to inject pesticide into the gallery where termites lived and traveled. It was not always guaranteed that the pesticide reached all of the termites, and the process was destructive.
Since Orange Oil is an oil based solution instead of a water based, it soaks through the wood over the next 4-5 hours killing all of the termites, their eggs and their queen. It is efficient and helps us avoid having to hack up beams of wood in your home to eliminate the termites completely.
Have you ever put a drop of salad dressing on a paper napkin and it slowly but surely soaks the entire napkin making it clear? That’s called the capillary effect and orange oil works similarly.
At Unipest, we believe that it is our responsibility to care for the earth’s environment while still helping to control pests in our customers’ homes and businesses.The Orange Oil, is literally made from the rinds of oranges so it smells good in the process and evaporates completely.
Unipest Pest and Termite Control began as a father-son project out of the family garage in Valencia, California. After years in the industry, Cardon Ellis teamed up with his father Craig, a CPA to form a new type of pest control company just for families and companies who wanted a better, more modern approach to pest control in Santa Clarita.
We know how to treat the specific critters that can plague our city. Call us today!
Everybody has heard the radio commercials for orange oil and wants to know “does it work?!” The short answer is “yes” and the long answer is “yes…and it is awesome!.”
Unipest Pest and Termite Control is the ONLY factory certified XT-2000 Orange Oil company in the Santa Clarita valley. In a nutshell, XT-2000 Orange oil is 95% pure d-limonene, the oil from the rind of oranges!
Have you ever peeled and orange and accidentally squirted some of it in your eye? Yeah… well that’s what we are doing to the termites… times 100!
XT-2000 orange oil is administered to termite colonies in a similar fashion to the traditional local foam treatments, the only difference is that, unlike traditional foam treatments, if you miss part of the colony, the orange oil will still soak through the entire piece of wood and kill all the termites inside.
Then, being 95% pure, it will slowly evaporate from the wood within the next 4 to 5 hours, leaving you with a completely exterminated and pleasantly smelling piece of termite free wood. We are so confident in our XT-2000 Orange Oil termite skills that we offer the same guarantee and pricing for our orange oil projects as we do our fumigation.
