Michael from Norristown, Pa writes,

Does the tint of the Turf Mark Blue Tablets wear off/disappear or is it permanent?

Have been told I have powder post beetles in rear covered porch joists. Wood is exposed, so I would like to not turn the wood blue permenantly. Also, area to be treated is 350 square feet. Terminex wants to charge $350 + tax to treat. Is that a fair price, or should I try doing it myself (estimates of buying bora care, the turf mark tablets, and sprayer is about $175).


The Turf Mark Blue Tablets can turn the wood blue permanently. While we cannot say if we think Terminix is charging a fair price or not for liability reasons we can tell you that if you are willing to do the labor yourself you will save a lot of money.
