Nature's Wisdom Orange Oil contains the raw oil collected from the citrus peel during juice extraction. No heat is applied during this "cold pressed" process thereby preserving the integrity of the oil. Orange Oil has been discovered to be an important ingredient in a variety of household and gardening applications. Orange Oil degrades the waxy coating on the ectoskeleton of insects, causing dehydration and asphxiation.
Medina Orange Oil is a natural and biodegradable product made from the oils extracted from orange peels during a cold press process that preserves the natural strucuture of the oil. Orange Oil has been found to be a key component of various gardening and household applications. Orange Oil has been found to naturally deter some insect pests such as fire ants. Medina Orange Oil is 98% cold pressed orange peel and 2% emulsifier.
XT-2000 Plus® is a naturally occurring essential oil containing the active ingredient d-limonene. This citrus oil is derived from the rind of the orange and is used in a variety of products from pet shampoos to household cleaners in Orange County, San Jose and San Francisco.
XT-2000 Plus® is 95% pure d-limonene!
When injected directly into termite galleries, XT-2000 Plus® kills termites and their eggs on contact. Should a termite be lucky enough to avoid physical contact with XT-2000 Plus®, it can also die if it eats any wood that has been recently treated with the product.
The reason XT-2000 Plus® and d-limonene are so devastating to termites is because of its exceptionally high citric acid content. This highly acidic pH level is of minimal consequence to humans, but to termites it is fatal.
XT-2000 Plus® will melt the exoskeletons and eggs of termites that come in contact with it, and should these pests be unfortunate enough to devour any wood that was recently treated, their stomachs will suffer a similar fate. Although XT-2000 Plus® will biodegrade in about four days, during that residual period, termites that eat treated wood through which d-Limonene travels will also be eradicated.
Another amazing property of XT-2000 Plus® is its ability to actually wick through wood, traveling through the porous cells in all directions and even defying gravity! Orange oil treatment used in San Francisco will not only treat the areas into which it is injected, but will soak into the surrounding areas as well.
