J from Redwood City Ca writes,

Is timbor effective at killing silverfish? Also,is it ok to paint over plywood after treatment with timbor?

I asked about silverfish because after spraying the cracks of my garage framing,I noticed the silverfish running out of the cracks.


Timbor is not actually labeled for silverfish though it may actually eliminate silverfish that come into contact with treated areas. Any primer or paint can be applied to Timbor treated wood as long as the Timbor application is completely dry to the touch.
