BORATE PREVENTIVE TREATMENT - Stop a Drywood Termite Infestation
Drywood termites can breed, infest and feed on the wood in your home for years without visible signs, causing costly structural damage. Structural tent fumigation eliminates existing termites but doesn’t prevent future infestations like borate.
Borate is a natural pesticide that is applied throughout the attic and crawlspace, where termites and insects enjoy the comfort, safety and low human/pet activity of these areas. Borate effectively penetrates areas not reachable by other treatments and preserves wood from termites and wood-destroying insects.
Effective in wiping out colonies, borate doesn’t kill termites immediately. Termites eat a small amount of borate and bring it back to feed to other termites in the colony. Borate disrupts their ability to digest food, killing them from starvation.
Borate is a naturally occurring salt mined from mineral deposits. A non-toxic salt, borate is safely used in household laundry and cleaning products so there’s low risk to your family’s health. Borate is toxic to insects and safer than regular pesticides.
