How Bora-Care Insecticide Works
Bora-Care Insecticide contains borate, an effective poison that targets an insect's digestive system. Once it digests the active ingredient, the borate goes to work and disrupts the pest's ability to digest cellulose; the insect dies as a result of starvation. The borate penetrates the wood and provides preventative control long after it's been applied to the target area.
Where to Use Bora-Care Insecticide
Apply Bora-Care Insecticide on porous surfaces in and around homes and businesses, including surfaces in shipping containers and transport vehicles. It should not be applied on food-prep areas or food-packaging materials. Use it to kill insects on cardboard, plywood, particleboard, bricks and similar surfaces. Bora-Care Insecticide protects siding, deck railings, wood flooring and other wooden timbers with one application. Use this insecticide to target insects in the following areas and more:
Termites and carpenter ants can't avoid the active ingredient in Bora-Care. These insects come into contact with borate while chewing on the wood. Though carpenter ants don't consume wood, they chew into it while boring tunnels and building nests. Therefore, the ants take in the active ingredient and die as a result. Bora-Care not only kills termites and carpenter ants but also wood-boring beetles and other insects that congregate around wood, such as roaches and silverfish.
In addition, Bora-Care is the ideal solution for targeting wood-destroying fungus such as brown rot. It also kills wood decay and algae, including dry rot and similar fungi in and around wooden structures.
