BORA-CARE Termiticide, Insecticide & Fungicide Concentrate

BORA-CARE Termiticide, Insecticide & Fungicide Concentrate

Univar Product Code: 608794

Package Information: 1 GL JG
Unit of Measure: GL
Manufacturer: Nisus Corporation

Bora-Care is a "green" borate-based EPA-registered termiticide applied directly to wood, concrete and foundation penetrations to eliminate wood as a food source and to create a continuous barrier that termites cannot cross. Bora-Care’s unique patented formula allows its active ingredient to penetrate into wood, delivering long-term residual protection. Treated wood is also protected against carpenter ants, wood destroying beetles and decay fungi. The active ingredient in Bora-Care is Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT), an inorganic salt that will not decompose or volatilize out of the wood once it is in place. Structures may be treated with Bora-Care as a primary subterranean termite treatment during the dried-in phase of construction, or it can be used as a remedial treatment to eliminate current and prevent future infestations in existing structures. A whole house treatment protects all structural wood against both subterranean and drywood termites as well as other pests.

    GREEN RATED posted Aug 1, 2013 by Michael J. in CA, CA

    Bora-Care is one of the few products we use that actually is green rated when used as a preventative treatment on new construction. Architects and builders seeking green rating points can gain some points and prevent termites. This is a great sales point.
