Bora-Care is an innovative wood preservative, fungicide and insecticide. It is particularly suited to treat any wood affected by fungal or insect infestations. BORA-CARE contains Timbor (disodium octaborate tetrahydrate) as the active ingredient along with a patented carrier system of mixed glycols, which allows the active ingredient to completely penetrate all wood, regardless of moisture content. Bora-Care can also be used as a preventative treatment. It has no color or odor and virtually no toxicity to mammals. One gallon of Bora-Care concentrate is mixed with one gallon of water. Each gallon of the resulting solution will treat 200 square feet. It can be applied by brush, sprayer or roller.

A Closer Look at the Benefits of Bora-Care

Saves you one cycle day during construction

The next time you build a home, you will save an entire day off your cycle. That is because with Bora-Care, there's no need for anyone to leave the job site. With soil pre-treatments, workers are required by law to put everything on hold and vacate the premises until the application is complete and dry, negatively affecting construction schedules. But with Bora-Care, there's no need to coordinate with the pest control company or cement company. 

Fastest growing termite pre-treatment in the U.S.

The more builders experience the effectiveness of Bora-Care, the more they make it their termite pre-treatment product of choice. Join the hundreds of builders who have said goodbye to the hazards and problems of soil treatments, and turned to the cost effective, easy to use Bora-Care. 

Eliminates weather delay

While soil treatments must be applied to dry ground after footers are dug, Bora-Care does not. Instead, its applied indoors, during the dried-in phase of construction. This keeps weather from ever being a factor. 

Eliminates need for an additional treatment at final grade

Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care only needs to be applied once. There is no need to return to the job site after the soil is set at final grade.

Penetrates wood and remains for the life of the wood

A patented mixture of borates, glycol and other ingredients cause Bora-Care to penetrate the wood far deeper than any other borate product available, delivering residual protection. The wood is protected longer, homeowners are happier and builders are growing their businesses faster.

Formulated with a concern for the environment

As the pest management industry becomes more environmentally conscious, Bora-Care continues to be the prime choice for those looking to protect our surroundings. Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care is not a threat to the plant life or water supply of a home. With its mineral salt, borate-based formula, Bora-Care is made with natural elements that are already present in the ecosystems outside our homes. You will also find it in many of the products we use inside. 

Not pumped into soil

When you pre-treat wood and concrete with Bora-Care, thats all you treat. With soil treatments, one of the main concerns is that hundreds of gallons of pesticides are pumped directly into the ground, where they could spread. Bora-Care can even be used on lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited.
