Orange oil is a natural termiticide made from orange peels, and it can be an effective treatment for termites when applied properly. When compared to tenting, orange oil has some advantages since it doesn’t require extensive preparation, there’s no need to evacuate the home or remove pets and plants, and there is no residue left behind. However, orange oil typically requires more frequent applications than tenting in order to maintain effectiveness against termites. Therefore orange oil may be better suited for targeted treatments rather than whole-home infestations due to its limited reach. Ultimately the best approach for treating termites depends on the extent of the infestation as well as safety concerns regarding toxicity levels and exposure time with any given product.
