Wood Protection

Natural Termite Protection

For New or Open Framing Construction:

Bora-Care Wood Treatments
In Southern California you need to protect your home from both Drywood and Subterranean termites. Colonies of termites swarm out from surrounding homes, fences, and trees a couple of times a year to start new colonies in your home. Bug Central puts the brakes on new termite attacks with Bora-Care.

Untreated Wood Comparison

Contractors: Switch to Bora-Care termite pretreatments and save time and money. With Bora-Care you treat the wood not the soil which will give you protection from Subterranean termites, Drywood termites, and wood destroying fungus for years to come. Plus you can add Mold-Care to prevent mold growth as well.

Wood Treated with Bora-Care

With Bora-Care you can eliminate scheduling hassles, eliminate weather delays, and eliminate the need for crews to leave the job site during treatment. (Green dye added to Bora-Care for photos.)

In addition to termite protection, wood treated with Bora-Care provides superior protection against carpenter ants, powder post beetles, and all major wood-destroying insects. It also prevents decay fungi. Pressure treated lumber and soil treatments cannot provide this level of protection.

Optional Dye added to Bora-Care Optional dye can be added to Bora-Care. The “on-wood” treatment remains visible on the inside for a week or more until the insulation or wallboard is in place. On the exterior, the UV sensitive dye will begin to fade quickest where it has the most exposure to the sun. Bora-Care remains effective after the dye fades and continues to penetrate the wood until it reaches complete equilibrium within the wood. At this point it remains effective virtually forever and cannot be removed unless the wood is physically removed.

Bora-Care is a borate-based termiticide, insecticide, and fungicide concentrate applied directly to the wood. Its patented glycol formula penetrates deep into the wood providing long lasting protection. Bora-Care protects the wood as long as it is in service.
