Wood Preservative, Treatment & Protection Products for Pests
The wood that makes up your home is a vital aspect of your property value and the structural integrity of the house itself, therefore you should always be mindful of the numerous pests that can damage and destroy that same wood before you even know there’s a problem. Luckily, here at the best online pest control store, you’ll find that there are several treatments on the market that can protect wood and keep dangerous and troublesome pests from causing problems.
Borate Wood Treatment and Its Uses
By far the most common form of wood treatments intended to protect against wood eating pests such as termites is borate wood treatment. This wood preservative is naturally derived and can be used in a wide variety of settings and on many different types of wood. The most popular brand of borate wood treatment products available today is Boracare. It is used to provide a protective barrier not only on the surface of the treated wood but also deep within the structure of the wood itself, leaving it virtually impenetrable to termites and other wood devouring insects such as carpenter bees.
Not only does it provide top notch protection against insects, but borate wood preservatives are also effective against other threats to wood such as fungi and mold.
How Do I Apply Wood Treatment Products?
This is a good question, and there are actually a few things you have to do to make sure that the use of these products gives you the desired result.
• Make Sure The Wood Is Porous and Bare
This is the most important part of the application of wood preservative. If the wood is covered by paint or stains or varnish, the treatment will do absolutely no good because it will not seep into the most vulnerable interior areas of the wood. Therefore it is advisable to only treat wood that has never been stained or painted, and in addition to sand the wood before treatment to make it more porous and allow the treatment to seep in completely.
• Know That Borate Is Only A Preventative Treatment
If there is an ongoing termite problem in your home, borate and similar wood treatments aren’t going to be useful. It is intended only as a preventative measure for wood that has no signs of termite infestation or termite damage. Therefore, it is a good idea to treat the wood in your home with a product such as this as soon as is feasible, so that there will be no threat of a future termite infestation or mold damage deep within the wood that makes up your house.
