|Active Ingredient(s)||Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (Borate) 40%|
|Pest Control||For powder post beetles, Bora-Care must be used on untreated wood. It is preferred over other treatments such as timbor in treating furniture because Bora-Care dries clear and will leave the furniture in its natural state. It will also absorb much further into the wood so you know the infestation is treated. Bora-Care is diluted with water at a 1:1 - 1:5 ratio depending on the pest you are targeting.|

Bora-Care Insecticide contains borate, an effective poison that targets an insect's digestive system. Once it digests the active ingredient, the borate goes to work and disrupts the pest's ability to digest cellulose; the insect dies as a result of starvation. The borate penetrates the wood and provides preventative control long after it's been applied to the target area.
Apply Bora-Care Insecticide on porous surfaces in and around homes and businesses, including surfaces in shipping containers and transport vehicles. It should not be applied on food-prep areas or food-packaging materials. Use it to kill insects on cardboard, plywood, particleboard, bricks and similar surfaces. Bora-Care Insecticide protects siding, deck railings, wood flooring and other wooden timbers with one application. Use this insecticide to target insects in the following areas and more:
Termites and carpenter ants can't avoid the active ingredient in Bora-Care. These insects come into contact with borate while chewing on the wood. Though carpenter ants don't consume wood, they chew into it while boring tunnels and building nests. Therefore, the ants take in the active ingredient and die as a result. Bora-Care not only kills termites and carpenter ants but also wood-boring beetles and other insects that congregate around wood, such as roaches and silverfish.
In addition, Bora-Care is the ideal solution for targeting wood-destroying fungus such as brown rot. It also kills wood decay and algae, including dry rot and similar fungi in and around wooden structures.
Take immediate action against wood-damaging insects with Bora-Care. It's highly effective at controlling and preventing termites, carpenter ants and even some fungi on particleboard, plywood and other porous surfaces. It applies easily as a spray to the target surfaces and provides residual action thanks to its unique formulation. The active ingredient affects an insect's digestive system and prevents it from feeding continually on the wood. Whether it's a termite infestation or wood-boring beetles, Bora-Care takes care of the problem quickly and effectively.

Can I use this product to treat a wood table that it is infected with drywood termites? First, I noticed the residuals then I saw the hauls (I treated them and closed them) but recently I saw the flying termites in my house. They are located in the table (no stained at the bottom but It is on the surface, which is from where they have appeared) we don't have a wood cealing. Thanks
Yes and it should work great
