Bora-Care is a "green" borate-based EPA-registered termiticide for remedial and primary new construction treatments. Pest control companies apply it directly to wood, concrete and foundation penetrations, creating a barrier and eliminating wood as a food source. Bora-Care delivers long-term residual protection. Treated wood is protected against termites, carpenter ants, wood destroying beetles and decay fungi.
As an award-winning green product, Bora-Care emits no VOCs and its borate active ingredient has low mammalian toxicity. Its use conserves hundreds of gallons of water with virtually no danger of chemical run-off into water systems. Bora-Care does not damage popular cPVC piping systems and does not corrode metal fasteners, fittings and nails.
Bora-Care is the only borate-based termiticide registered as a primary termite barrier treatment for new construction that also has proven product-specific, original efficacy data required by the EPA. Bora-Care wood treatments are HUD allowed, IRC-listed and meet the AWPA's sill plate end-cut requirements for pressure-treated lumber.
