For Use In

Boracare is most frequently used for pre-construction or post-construction preventative treatment of listed wood-infesting pests on structures


For powder post beetles, Boracare must be used on untreated wood. It is preferred over other treatments such as timbor in treating furniture because Boracare dries clear and will leave the furniture in its natural state. It will also absorb much further into the wood so you know the infestation is treated. Boracare is diluted with water at a 1:1 - 1:5 ratio depending on the pest you are targeting.

Coverage Area

Post construction and active infestations use rate is 1:1

Preventative use rate is 1:1, 2:1, 3:1, or 5:1 Refer to the label for complete instructions.

Can you spray outside around the house on painted surfaces and plastic siding? The house is old over 100 years. I just have carpenter ants and pretty sure the nest is in a 100 year old tree. They are just in the front of house.
Kathy D on Apr 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No, this needs to be applied to unfinished, unpainted wood. Better to apply a dust in the opening.

Can i first apply it to wood then add after it dries a encapulation like "foster" or "after shock"paint ? Or add it after i apply encapulation ? Which is best? If any
Bryon P on Oct 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I do not know what "foster" or "after shock" paint are. I was advised to apply BORA-CARE in two applications, several weeks apart, diluted 2 parts water to 1 part BORA-CARE to treat for powder post beetles. If I see a crystalline surface on the wood, it means the product was not completely absorbed into the wood. Applying more product will not help. I was also advised by the manufacturer that it takes 6-8 months for the product to be effective after application. I was advised to give it time.
I am going to spray my attic for carpenter ants and wood boring beetles. Can I just spray it on the wood or is there more? Will this product harm my car if she gets into the attic? She loves sneaking up into the attic. Do I need a respirator
James on Apr 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can spray the attic with Bora Care-Natural Borate Termite Control to untreated wood, it will not be harmful to pets once it is completely dry.

We were building a new home in Houston and the bugs down here play for keeps. We wanted to make sure that they did not get us. The people in the store recommended Boracare for the studs of the home and it comes with a 12 year termite protection guarantee. I am very pleased with it and they taught us how to use it very well.
