Bora-Care Effective Wood Treatment Both Now and in the Future. BoracareBora-Care is a borate-based insecticide, termitcide and fungicide that is applied directly to wood by Pest Management Professionals (PMPs). Once applied, Bora-Care penetrates the wood and kills and prevents:  Decay fungi (wet and dry rot) Algae Subterranean Termites Formosan Termites Drywood Termites Carpenter Ants Powderpost Beetles Anobiid Beetles Old House Borers Longhorned Beetles Once all sheet rock has been removed and the home has been dried, professional pest management companies can apply Bora-Care to all structural wood and any other building material surfaces, which can include concrete, block walls, plumbing pipes, OSB, plywood and sheet rock. When PMPs apply Bora-Care to structural wood, they are protecting the home both now and in the future because when Bora-Care treated wood gets wet, Bora-Care effectively stops wood decay until the wood has time to dry. Bora-Care’s patented glycol formula not only penetrates wood, but because the active ingredient, Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT), is a natural mineral salt, once it penetrates the wood, it remains for the life of the wood, protecting it against wood destroying organisms, including wood decay fungi, subterranean termites, Formosan termites, drywood termites, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles.
