How It Works
Tim-bor Professional's active ingredient is Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT), a natural borate mineral salt and micronutrient. It is manufactured for use in the form of a water-soluble borate powder. Once it's applied in a liquid form by foaming, misting or spraying onto wood or other cellulosic materials, the borate active ingredient creates a protective envelope and remains for years of protection.
Often Tim-bor Professional is dusted into places like wall voids where pests like to hide as an additional protection against carpenter ants, drywood termite alates and adult wood boring beetles. When the dust gets on the insects, they clean themselves and consume the boron during the cleaning process.

Q: Does this penetrate into the wood like Bor-A-Care?
A: No Tim-bor will not penetrate through and through the wood like the Bor-A-Care will, because it does not have an added ingredient, but if you can treat all 4 sides of the wood you will get the same benefit.
