I live in Southern California near the ocean. I have termites in my wood fence.
How long will BoraCare last when exposed to the elements of Southern California coastal area? If the rain washes away the treatment, can it be reapplied during our dry season?
Bora-Care is great for the termite issue in your fence, but when applied outside it is very important to seal the treatment by using a sealant material, like a Thompsons water seal. Bora-Care can only be applied to raw wood and after it is applied to wood outdoors it must be sealed. However, you could apply it each year if you wanted to, but it is not necessary if you seal it.
