No Move Out Methods

Fumigation is always our primary reccomendation, though depending on accessability and the severity of your termite inestation, Southland Pest Control’s Termite Services division may be able to treat your termites without requiring you to move out of your home.

Don’t Want Chemicals?

For those who are chemically sensitive, we offer heat treatments for termites. Your home is sealed but unlike fumigation does not require tenting or commercial fumigants.

Orange Oil Is Dangerous!

Orange oil treatments in Corona, Ontario and Riverside are highly flammable!

Recently, citric acid - also known as orange oil, has become a popular termite control method. While orange oil is advertised as "safe" and "organic," it has no place in your home, and could prove lethal if the correct situation is presented!

Orange Oil Burns Like Kerosine!

Orange oil is extremely flammable when applied to wood, but will not catch fire in a standing puddle. Orange oil wicks into wood, this wicking action allows the product to reach maximum volatility. Once orange oil has been used on a timber, it needs only a minor spark before causing catastrophic damage. For this reason orange oil should not be used near electrical sources, heating and cooling units, or in any other situation that may routinely reach over 120 degrees - such as a wall void or attic.

Orange Oil Doesnt Work!

Orange oil is a contact based termiticide, thus it has to saturate the infected wood to effectively control termites. If proper saturation is not reached in all affected wood members, the termites will not be eliminated. Orange oil is billed as being an organic, or natural method of controlling termites. While orange oil may be organic, that doesn’t mean it lasts - orange oil biodegrades in 21 days and has no residual value after that time. Due to orange oil’s ineffectiveness, termites that are present 21 days after the treatment will continue feeding on your home unopposed.

Orange Oil Is Toxic To The Environment!

In addition to orange oil’s shoddy termite control record, orange oil releases a high level of VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) which are harmful to the environment and unsafe to breathe. Orange oil is also a major marine pollutant! At Southland Pest Control, we perform in-depth research all the products we use. We are conscious of the environment and understand that some products are truly unsafe to use on a structure, despite how they are advertised.
