The ‘Smart’ choice in termite treatment

  • Akamai Pest Solution technician Zan Nicolas treats a customer's home for termites with XT2000 Orange Oil.

  • “We are the smarter, safer alternative.” -Roger Meints (Owner)

Akamai Pest Solutions has gone green — or orange, rather. As a company dedicated to always providing the best for their customers, their primary means of pest control is an organic product named XT2000 Orange Oil. Owner Roger Meints chose this method because it is not only safer for homes and businesses, but for the environment as well.

“Akamai” means smart in Hawaiian, which makes sense for Akamai Pest Solutions. As Meints explained, “We are the smarter, safer alternative.” Indeed, the company’s XT2000 Orange Oil is made out of distilled orange rinds, making it 95 percent pure orange oil, the other 5 percent being pulp water. It contains no additives and has revolutionized pest control.
Compared to fumigation, orange oil offers countless benefits to homeand business-owners. The product is harmless, meaning home and business owners no longer have to vacate the premises or worry about lingering harmful gasses. The hassles of bagging every single consumable item in the home (food and even makeup) and hiring a security guard to stand watch are all avoided with the orange oil.
Oftentimes one of the most worrisome parts of fumigating is having to sign a waiver stating that the company is not liable for any roof, gutter or solar panel damage after treatment. With XT2000 Orange Oil, no waiver is needed. Being that it is an organic product, Akamai Pest Solutions is able to install it while you are home by simply injecting the oil into problem areas. No tenting or vacating is necessary either.
Akamai Pest Solutions offers both ground and dry wood treatment along with warranties. For ground termite treatment, the length of the warranty varies from one to five years, depending on what sort of chemical was needed for treatment. For dry wood treatment, the warranty spans for two years with the option of renewing it annually. Every year under that warranty, Akamai Pest Solutions will inspect your home and immediately take care of any new problems.
From April to June, termites enter a transformation phase, meaning those are the worst months for swarming for both ground and dry wood termites. Akamai Pest Solutions suggests you call them if you notice any of the following: termite droppings, significant groups of termites or wood damage. It is important to remember that swarming does not always constitute termite activity, but the safest way to tell is to call them for an inspection (Akamai Pest Solutions offers free estimates) at 754-3393.
