Many applications exist for home pest control products with Borate, which is most commonly used to treat wood infestations and fungus problems. Considered a very safe, reliable active ingredient- Borate is frequently referred to as having less toxicity than common table salt. First used over four centuries ago, Boric Acid is mined from a type of salt and was officially registered as a pest control product in the 1940s. Now mass produced to accommodate the variety of treatments, Borate can be safely used. With proper use and care, following labeled instructions, unintended targets are at very low risk. Insects are effected much differently than mammals and humans, as the active ingredient poisons their stomachs and ultimately reacts to their exoskeleton.
Borate based products such as Tim-Bor and Bora Care are used to treat against current infestations of carpenter ants, wood damaging beetles and termites, as well as prevent future infestations in new and existing construction. This active ingredient is also a great way to treat and prevent wood rot and other damaging fungi.
Because the treatments do not discolor the wood surfaces they are applied to, new structures are treated as the application prevents infestations indefinitely, providing a great, affordable, permanent solution. Bora-Care with Mold Care can be applied when walls and beams are accessible, allowing for easy application. In addition to protection from wood destroying pests, it also deters common pests such as roaches, from trying to gain entry to your home. Bora-Care with Mold-Care absorbs into wood and remains, delivering residual power for years of protection. Spot treatments can also be completed during renovation, and during repair following water damage inside your home. The product will ensure that live mold is killed, and future decay is stopped in its tracks.
