It is the goal of We Care Pest Solutions to provide eco-friendly termite control options that effectively remove and prevent termites from further damaging your residential or commercial property.
We Care Pest Solutions specializes in targeted treatments that prevent you from having to fumigate or tent the house. In many cases, we can use XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus® to treat your termites.
This natural solution is highly desirable because you do not have to move out of your house, bag up food and remove plants from your house. We use XT-2000 Orange Oil Plus, also known as D-limonene, an essential oil derived from orange rinds. Orange Oil is a natural pesticide that orange trees produce which is commonly used in cleaning solutions, shampoos and perfumes. This product is a renewable resource and by-product of orange juice manufacturing.
Call our termite control specialists for an inspection and estimate. We will determine if Orange Oil is the ideal solution for your unique termite issues.
Unlike Drywood Termites, Subterranean Termites build large colonies underground composed of elaborate tunnels and chambers. To reach above-ground wood, a food source, their workers construct protective tunnels of mud and saliva.
We Care treats Subterranean Termites with a product called Altriset®. This product is applied to the soil under and around the perimeter of the foundation. Assuming there is concrete at the perimeter of the foundation, our technicians will drill holes into the concrete. Then we pressure-inject Altriset into the soil beneath the concrete, after which we plug the hole. (Please note the concrete patch dries gray, so it will not match colored, stamped or aggregate concrete.)
Altriset has been proven to be an exceptional termiticide, based on hundreds laboratory and field studies conducted by independent scientists.
We Care uses Tim-bor as a preventative product. It is a direct Drywood termite treatment and is also used for small scale wood-boring beetles.
Made primarily of Borate salt compounds, this product is very effective for coating exposed wood to prevent infestations for up to 20 years. Another benefit is that it is also extremely low in toxicity. After mixed into a water solution, Tim-bor is sprayed over exposed wood not subject to external conditions, such as attics, sub-areas, and garages.
In some cases, it may be necessary to tent and fumigate a structure to reach termites in difficult to access places. See our Tenting and Fumigation page more information and to schedule a termite inspection.
