Bora Care Treatment Kills Wood Destroying Insects
Boracare is an insecticide, termiticide and fungicide concentrate used to combat Termites, Powderpost Beetles, Carpenter Ants and Decay Fungi.
Boracare is used as a treatment to untreated wood. Boracare as a termite killer is not applied to the soil, but used as a treatment of cellouse material (wood based material) directly. Boracare may be used for new construction as a termite treatment. Spray the bottom two feet of studs and framework with a compressed air sprayer. Consult label for complete application instructions.
Boracare vs Timbor
BoraCare is in a thick glycol solution; the glycol permits a deeper penetration than other borates such as Timbor. BoraCare will last for the life of the wood, so retreatment is not necessary.
Bora Care Treats Decay Fungi ( Not Mold )
It also has a label against Decay Fungi, but to prevent mold, use the Boracare with Mold-Care.
No Insect Resistance
Boracare with borate salts work by taking advantage of a unique feature in the biology of termites, ants and other insects. If ingested by ants, beetles or termites, the insect becomes unable to extract nutrition from its food and starves to death. And because of this unique mode of action, insects cannot develop a resistance.
Applications and Yield
Bora Care is mixed 1:1 to 5:1 depending on insect and thickness of wood and target pest. See Boracare Dilution Tables for more details.
Yield: One gallon of finished (diluted product) will treat and average of 500 sq feet of wood surface. A handy tool when applying Boracare is to use a tempory marking dye such as Alligare Marking Dye that will help you monitor spray applications (Use just a little).
