XT-2000 Orange Oil is an extract of orange peels. The active ingredient is d-limonene, which you’ve probably used around the house in household cleaners and pet shampoos. You know, the ones with the familiar orange aroma. While Orange Oil can be a great cleaner, it also happens to be toxic to termites. When a termite comes in contact with Orange Oil, the wax coating of the termite’s respiratory system is destroyed, causing it to suffocate. When injected into termite-infested wood, XT-2000 Orange Oil spreads like water up a string, penetrating to hard-to-reach areas and killing drywood termites and their eggs on contact. It’s a renewable, plant-based solution that’s been used as an insecticide since 1958.
Tim-bor is a Planet Orange wood preservative that guards against future infestations. It penetrates deep into the wood and becomes a part of the wood, so its termite repellent properties last a long time.
