Product Description: 

Tim-bor Borate Treatment is a fast and efficient way to treat a structure for target pests. It can be used as a wood preservative, fungicide and insecticide on its own or in conjunction with other treatments as a supplement. Tim-bor Borate Treatment contains borates, specifically, disodium octaborate tetrahydrate (DOT).  It is odorless and will not stain wood or other materials. Finally, it is non-corrosive so it will not affect nails, screws, supports, lag bolts or any other galvanized metal component.


Apply by garden sprayer or brush directly to unstained or unsealed wood. On wood with normal moisture content, apply (1) application of a 15% solution to wood surfaces.  On wood with drier than normal moisture content, apply (2) applications of a 10% solution to wood surfaces.  Product may crystalize a little on the surface of your wood.  Simply take a brush and remove any of this particular matter prior to stain application.  Finally, we suggest waiting 24 hours prior to stain application.
