What is Bora-Care?

Bora-Care is a concentrated termiticide, insecticide and fungicide treatment that can be applied to all wood during the dried-in phase of construction. When applied, it diffuses into the wood and remains there for the life of the wood. Termites cannot consume, live in or tube over treated wood. Treatment also provides protection against wood decay, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles.

In areas where termite pretreatments are necessary, Bora-Care can be used as a replacement for soil termiticides. Instead of creating a thin barrier of toxic chemicals in the soil, Bora-Care uses the structure itself to prevent infestations.

Bora-Care’s active ingredient is a borate mineral salt that is no more toxic than table salt (in laboratory settings). Once applied to wood, Bora-Care diffuses into the wood and remains in the wood for the life of the wood, providing long-term protection {}.
