Can Boracare w/ Moldcare be used in a limited fashion where I need both mold and powderpost beetle control?
I have a limited area (25 sq ft +/-) where there is both some heavy mold AND powder post beetle problems. Can I mix up a small batch of BC/MC at a 5:1 ratio to fix the problem area???
Bora-Care with Mold Care will not eliminate existing termites, powder post beetles, or other wood destroying organisms because it is mixed at a 5:1 ratio to eliminate mold and you need to mix normal Bora-Care at a 1:1 ratio to eliminate existing wood eating insects. You would need to use both products follwoing their own dilution rates to get control of both the beetles and mold.
