Can BORACARE be used full strength to penetrate better or is dilution required?
Boracare does need to be diluted depending on what you are intending to use the product for. For an active infestation of a wood destroying insect, you will use 1 gallon of hot water with 1 gallon of Boracare. The percentage of active ingredient is 23% in that dilution.
2:1 parts water to Boracare – 16% - foaming or misting application for termites or carpenter ants; hardwood floors for some wood-infesting beetles
3:1 parts water to Boracare – 13% - remedial control of Fungi and Algae on wood less than 4 inches thick5:1 parts water to Boracare – 9% - most preventative or pre-construction treatments.
