A Closer Look - How does Bora-Care work?

The active ingredient in Bora-Care is a borate salt. Borate salts work by taking advantage of a unique feature in the biology of termites, ants and other insects. If ingested by ants, beetles or termites, the insect becomes unable to extract nutrition from its food and starves to death. And because of this unique mode of action, insects cannot develop a resistance, ever. Bora-Care works differently than most other insecticides, termiticides and even other borate products on the market today. For starters, it isn’t applied to the soil but to the structure itself. Secondly, it isn’t just a repellent or a bait but a little bit of each. Bora-Care’s unique patented blend of glycols in combination with a borate salt provides results that are hard to beat. As soon as beetles and ants attempt to consume treated wood they die. Subterranean termites won’t even try to eat treated wood and if they attempt to build a tube on treated wood, the termites start to die. This alerts the termite colony and they abandon the wood.

Treat the Wood, Not the Soil

Bora-Care is applied directly onto wood surfaces. Because the active ingredient in Bora-Care is a mineral salt, it doesn’t break down over time, so it remains in the wood for the life of the wood, providing long-term protection. By keeping the wood sealed or protected from moisture, as in the wall voids of a structure, you eliminate the need for retreatment. Soil treatments are not only more difficult to apply; they lose their effectiveness over time. Then a costly retreatment becomes necessary. Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care is not pumped into the ground and poses no threat to lakes, rivers, aquifers or the environment. Bora-Care can even be used on lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited. Bora-Care has shown no compatibility issues with any type of plumbing pipes, and will not corrode metal fasteners, fittings or nails. Bora-Care’s active ingredient is a natural mineral salt called Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT) which contains the element boron. Boron is an element (chemical symbol B) on the periodic table that is already present in the environment – not only in the ecosystems outside of your home – but also in many of the products you use inside such as soaps and cosmetics. Boron is also found in many of the vegetables we eat.

What does the research say?

Twelve years of efficacy studies and treatments in the field since 1990 have shown Bora-Care’s ability to prevent termites and other wood-destroying insects from consuming wood or tubing over treated wood to reach untreated wood. Bora-Care simply eliminates wood as a food source. In addition, hundreds of studies have confirmed the effectiveness of borates as a preservative, including more than 40 studies confirming its wood-protecting power.

Bora-Care prevents subterranean termites from tubing across treated wood and other structural materials. In addition, a study by Louisiana State University demonstrated that even Formosan termites can’t tube over concrete treated with Bora-Care.

Pretreatments can be done quickly; Infestations are handled with ease. Pretreating a home for subterranean termites with Bora-Care is fast and efficient and there is no need for the construction crew to leave the job site. Use Bora-Care on new construction. For termite pretreatments, Bora-Care can be applied directly to the wood with a portable backpack sprayer or a tank sprayer. Simply spray a two-foot tall continuous barrier onto all structural materials in contact with the foundation. This includes walls, piers, interior slab or basement walls, plumbing penetrations, pipe chases, bath traps, and any other foundation penetrations. This insures that all termite entry-points are treated. Or use it as a whole-house treatment to prevent infestations of drywood termites, wood destroying beetles, decay fungi and to provide general pest protection.

Bora-Care is an EPA-registered “Primary Termite Pretreatment” product and is listed in the 2006 International Residential Code.

Bora-Care is Up to the Codes

In addition to EPA registration, Bora-Care wood treatments are HUD-allowed and listed for use under the 2006 International Residential Code, Section R320 Protection Against Subterranean Termites. Only Bora-Care’s EPA-registered label allows it to be used on wood as a stand-alone two-foot barrier termite pretreatment. Bora-Care also meets the sill plate end-cut requirements set by building codes and the American Wood-Preservers’ Association (AWPA M4). Click here for We Know Codes flyer.

A Closer Look

Pretreats are the best way to grow your business.

In plain terms, you can be profitable as a pest management company because Bora-Care works. More specifically, after years of using soil treatments that are disruptive to construction schedules and less effective grade formulas, pest management companies are discovering Bora-Care is the most efficient, cost-effective termiticide. It is a great way to sell your pest control business to builders looking to satisfy homeowners.

Nisus’ best pest control companies’ benchmarks for conversion are 80% renewal on termite contracts, 55% conversion to general pest contracts

The conversion numbers are as impressive as the product. Because pest control companies have the opportunity to contact homeowners and convert treatments into termite renewals and general pest control contracts, think of it as a built-in lead generation program and a way for pest management companies to grow their businesses quickly.

Pretreatments can be done IN ONE TRIP

Pretreatments are fast and efficient. Bora-Care can be applied with a portable backpack sprayer or tank sprayer. You just create a two-foot horizontal and vertical continuous barrier everywhere the foundation meets the structural materials of the home. With Bora-Care, there are no weather delays, unlike soil treatments that can’t be applied in rain. Bora-Care only needs to be applied once, which means you not only save time, but also only have to make one trip, and with the rising cost of gas, you save money, too.

An easy sell to builders

Builders understand the value of Bora-Care. They appreciate the role it plays in securing a quality inspection. They will also like the fact that there is no need for anyone to leave the job site and no need to coordinate schedules with cement or soil workers. The result is that it saves them an entire day of their building cycle.

12 years of efficacy studies

More than 1,000,000 effectively treated homes can’t be wrong. Since 1990, we’ve shown that Bora-Care keeps wood from being a food source for termites. Bora-Care prevents subterranean termites from tubing across treated wood. In addition, a study by Louisiana State University demonstrated that even Formosan termites can’t tube over or survive on concrete treated with Bora-Care.

What is Bora-Care

Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate. It’s a fancy way to say “DOT”, Bora-Care’s active ingredient. More simply stated, Bora-Care is a combination of the naturally found mineral borate and a patented mixture of glycol-based components that easily absorb into the porous fibers of wood and draw the borates with it. And since borates don’t break down over time, the product remains available for the life of the wood providing residual protection. In addition, this patented product provides you with a low toxicity solution. And that means that Bora-Care can be used with confidence in and around homes, apartments, schools, hospitals, kennels, farm buildings, trailers, warehouses, non-food areas of supermarkets, restaurants and food processing plants.

The Science Behind Bora-Care

Bora-Care is a low toxicity wood preservative that has a low environmental impact. It protects wood and whole structures from most wood destroying organisms including subterranean termites, Formosan termites, drywood termites, wood destroying beetles, carpenter ants, and decay fungi.

The active ingredient is the natural borate salt disodium octaborate tetrahydrate (DOT). DOT is a natural form of elemental boron, which is essential for the healthy growth of plants and believed important in human calcium metabolism. Because animals and humans simply take what they need from their diet and rapidly excrete any excess via the kidneys, DOT has a low acute toxicity and Bora-Care is about half as toxic as sodium chloride or table salt (in a laboratory setting), but it’s very effective against insects and fungi that do not have the same excretion mechanisms. DOT maximizes the solubility, the rate of dissolution and the boric oxide content to give a borate active ingredient far superior to traditional boric acid or borax. At the levels used in Bora-Care applications, it prevents pest infestation by inhibiting pest metabolism on a cellular basis. The tetrahydroxyborate anion forms a chelate complex with the cis-adjacent hydroxyl groups in the ribose sugar of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), with the cationic nitrogen of the nicotinamide moiety providing electrostatic stabilization of the chelate. In this configuration, NAD and NADP cannot be used by the dehydrogenase enzymes of glycolysis, the pentose phosphate pathway or the tricarboxylic acid pathway, and so the cellular energy generating mechanisms, including adenosine triphosphate production, are shut down.

This enhanced borate salt is combined with a patented mixture of alkylene and polyalkylene diols for superior penetration and improved efficacy. The resulting borester compounds have superior penetration into dry wood because diffusion can take place at a lower wood moisture content than if the active ingredient was by itself occurring at above 15% moisture content. But more importantly, this results in much higher efficacy against wood destroying organisms, especially against subterranean and drywood termites. As a result, Bora-Care is the only borate material that is EPA-registered as a primary termite pretreatment in new construction and provides by far the best remedial treatment against drywood termites.

Now there is a solution to protecting your structures from termites that can earn you points in green building programs such as LEED® for Homes, NGBS Green Poduct Certification ProgramTM, EarthCraft® and many others. Instead of poisoning the soil under a home, Bora-Care eliminates the wood as a food source while saving you one full day of cycle time.

Nisus now offers the Bora-Care 30-Year Limited Warranty to pest control companies who register treated homes and inspect them annually. This damage repair warranty, which is extended to the pest control companies, gives builders and homeowners peace of mind knowing their homes can be covered under the limited warranty for the length of a standard 30-year mortgage.

We recommend application by a pest control professional.

Bora-Care at a Glance

Simply the best at making termite pretreatment simple.

Builders are switching to Bora-Care termite pretreatments at an unprecedented rate.

Cost-effective and easy to incorporate into your logistics, just a few gallons of Bora-Care will protect your entire structure from subterranean termites. During the dried-in phase of construction, your pest control company will apply it directly to the wood, concrete and foundation penetrations in one fast, easy, spray application - and you’re done. Termites can’t consume the wood and they can’t tube over it. Simply put, Bora-Care eliminates more than termites, it eliminates problems. It’s a fact that Bora-Care saves builders time and money with their highly efficient process that eliminates problems caused by pumping hundreds of gallons of chemicals into the soil.

  • Saves builders one cycle day during construction
  • Fastest growing termite pretreatment in the U.S.
  • Eliminates weather delays
  • Eliminates need for additional treatment at final grade
  • Penetrates wood and remains for the life of the wood
  • Formulated with a concern for the environment
  • Not pumped into soil
  • 2006 Green Builder Award winner
  • Earn Points for LEED and other green building programs

Previously, when builders wanted to protect a house from termites, they would pump 300 gallons of chemicals into the soil below and around the foundation of an average house. These chemicals began showing up in lakes, rivers and aquifers. It is estimated that more than 234,000,000 gallons of pesticides are pumped into residential soil in the U.S. each year on new construction alone (imagine about 40,000 semi-tanker trucks), and most of those homes will need a retreatment in 5-10 years. By making Bora-Care your treatment of choice, you’re preventing the need for continuous retreatment, while to providing your customers with an outstanding, highly effective termite protection.

10 Reasons Why Every Builder Should Specify Bora-Care Termite Pretreatments

  1. Builders are saving a full day of cycle time by switching to Bora-Care pretreats. Bora-Care eliminates the need to coordinate schedules between concrete companies and pest management professionals (PMPs). Bora-Care is applied during the dried-in phase of construction.
  2. Bora-Care eliminates weather delays. Traditional soil treatments require application to dry ground after the footers are dug. Bora-Care is applied directly to the wood and concrete on walls, subfloors, sill plates, piers and expansion joints, as well as around pipe chases and plumbing. Weather is simply not a factor.
  3. Bora-Care eliminates the need for crews to leave the job site. In traditional soil pretreatments, workers are required by law to leave the site during application and stay away until the application is completed. With Bora-Care, your crew can keep right on working.
  4. HUD allows Bora-Care treatments. The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) 99-A form allows direct wood treatment of Bora-Care as a primary termite treatment in new home construction.
  5. Efficacy tests show proven results. Research from a 12-year study by the USDA Forest Service and Mississippi State University’s Forest Products Laboratory showed wood treated with Bora-Care stopped termite attacks and prevented subterranean termites from tubing over treated wood. In addition, tests conducted at Louisiana State University have shown that Bora-Care applied to concrete surfaces will prevent Formosan termite tubing. Treated wood is also protected against carpenter ants, old house borers, powderpost beetles and decay fungi.
  6. Treatments near water are no longer a concern. With soil treatments, there is the concern of chemicals leaching into a nearby water source. When you pretreat the wood and concrete, that’s ALL you treat.
  7. Soil termiticides can cause some plumbing pipes to leak. Bora-Care has shown no compatability issues with any type of plumbing pipes, and will not corrode metal fasteners, fittings or nails.
  8. Toxicity is a rising concern among homeowners. With traditional soil treatments, hundreds of gallons of pesticides are pumped into the ground under and around a home. Bora-Care is a low odor termiticide that is applied directly to the wood—answering the concerns of homeowners who are demanding less-toxic alternatives.
  9. International building code. Bora-Care is listed in the International Building Code and the International Residential Code. Bora-Care meets the sill plate end-cut requirements set by building codes and the American Wood-Preservers’ Association (AWPA M4).
  10. Excavation and landscaping do not affect the treatment. Leaky water lines, improper drainage and even the landscaping process can break a soil termiticide barrier, rendering soil pretreatments ineffective by the time the house is complete. With Bora-Care, you’re treating the wood, and once again, a problem is eliminated.

What Does Bora-Care Do?

Bora-Care prevents and eliminates:
  • Drywood termites
  • Subterranean termites
  • Formosan termites
  • Carpenter ants
  • Powderpost beetles
  • Old house borers
  • PLUS: Bora-Care will kill and prevent algae and wood decay fungi

Every year, Bora-Care replaces 45 million gallons or more of toxic pesticide solution that would have been pumped in the ground. That’s a savings equal to 9,400 18-wheel tanker trucks of pesticide solution. And that’s an amount we can all live with.

By keeping the wood sealed or protected from moisture as in the wall voids of a structure, you eliminate the need for retreatment. Soil treatments are not only more difficult to apply, they lose their effectiveness over time—then a costly retreatment becomes necessary every five to 10 years. Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care is not a threat to the environment or water supply. Bora-Care’s active ingredient is boron a natural element that is already present in the environment – not only in the ecosystems outside of your home—but also in many of the products you use inside. Bora-Care can even be used on ocean front, riverside or lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited.

A Closer Look at the Benefits of Bora-Care

Saves you one cycle day during construction

The next time you build a home, you’ll save an entire day off your cycle. That’s because with Bora-Care, there’s no need for anyone to leave the job site. With soil pretreatments, workers are required by law to put everything on hold and vacate the premises until the application is complete and dry, negatively affecting construction schedules. But with Bora-Care, there’s no need to coordinate with the pest control company or cement company. ).

Fastest growing termite pretreatment in the U.S.

The more builders experience the effectiveness of Bora-Care, the more they make it their termite pretreatment product of choice. Join the hundreds of builders who’ve said goodbye to the hazards and problems of soil treatments, and turned to the cost effective, easy to use Bora-Care. ).

Eliminates weather delay

While soil treatments must be applied to dry ground after footers are dug, Bora-Care does not. Instead, it’s applied indoors, during the dried-in phase of construction. This keeps weather from ever being a factor. ).

Eliminates need for an additional treatment at final grade

Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care only needs to be applied once. There is no need to return to the job site after the soil is set at final grade.).

Penetrates wood and remains for the life of the wood

A patented mixture of borates, glycol and other ingredients cause Bora-Care to penetrate the wood far deeper than any other borate product available, delivering residual protection. The wood is protected longer, homeowners are happier and builders are growing their businesses faster.).

Formulated with a concern for the environment

As the pest management industry becomes more environmentally conscious, Bora-Care continues to be the prime choice for those looking to protect our surroundings. Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care is not a threat to the plant life or water supply of a home. With its mineral salt, borate-based formula, Bora-Care is made with natural elements that are already present in the ecosystems outside our homes. You’ll also find it in many of the products we use inside. ).

Not pumped into soil

When you pre-treat wood and concrete with Bora-Care, that’s all you treat. With soil treatments, one of the main concerns is that hundreds of gallons of pesticides are pumped directly into the ground, where they could spread. Bora-Care can even be used on lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited.).

12/25-year warranty available for your pest control company (varies from builder to builder)

If your pest control company chooses, it can register your homes for one of the five levels of our 12/25-Year BoraShield™ warranty (this warranty is extended only to the PMP).

New Construction

Homeowners should request Bora-Care for the termite pretreatment of their new homes. Bora-Care replaces old-style soil termiticides which are pumped into the ground under and around the house. Liquid termiticides can break down in just a few years (Mulrooney et al, 2006). Bora-Care eliminates treated wood as a food source for termites. And studies show that termites can’t tube over Bora-Care treated wood. (Amburgey,T.H. and William, L.H. 2001 Mississippi State University)

We stand behind your pest control company’s termite work with our 30-year warranty. When your pest company treats your new home with Bora-Care they can register your home with NISUS CORPORATION and we will provide a 30-year damage repair warranty. The termite company will need to inspect the home annually and register that inspection online to keep the warranty in force.

Existing Homes

Bora-Care is also ideal for eliminating existing infestations. Pest control companies can treat all accessible wood wherever termite infestations exist wall voids can be injected with high pressure mist or foam. They can also treat crawl spaces or any other areas with infested wood.

What does Bora-Care kill and prevent?

Pretreatments can be done quickly

Many states and lending institutions require that new homes have a termite pretreatment conducted by a professional pest control company before the new house can be sold. Pretreating your house with Bora-Care is fast and efficient. With traditional soil treatments, once the footers are dug, but before the cement is poured for the footers, soil termiticides must be pumped into the ground. This stops the construction process. Work cannot continue until the application has dried. If it is raining or wet the soil treatment cannot be applied until the ground has dried. All of these delays cost time and money. Bora-Care is applied directly to the wood in your home any time during the dried-in phase of construction. The pest management professional creates a two-foot horizontal and vertical continuous barrier everywhere the foundation meets the structural materials of your home. This includes walls, piers, interior slab or basement walls, plumbing penetrations, pipe chases, bath traps, and any other foundation penetrations. This insures that all termite entry-points are treated.

Bora-Care is an EPA registered termiticide and is labeled for use as a “primary” termite pretreatment in new construction. This means that Bora-Care has met the 5-year efficacy data requirement set by the EPA. No other borate termiticide has been able to pass this rigorous test. There are numerous borate termiticides on the market, but none come close to matching the performance of Bora-Care. Make sure you specify Bora-Care for your home.

Whole House Treatments
Bora-Care can also be used as a whole house treatment to give the home protection against drywood termites, carpenter ants, wood boring beetles, and to provide general pest protection inside all your walls. Bora-Care will also prevent wood decay.

Infestations are handled with ease
When termites are detected in the wood in your home, ask your pest professional to treat the wood with Bora-Care. While any insecticide will kill the termites that it comes directly into contact with, Bora-Care will penetrate the wood, killing even those termites that cannot be seen or were not detected. With Bora-Care, once the wood is treated it is no longer a food source and termites cannot infest the wood. And Bora-Care will remain in the wood for the life of the wood.

Bora-Care is an EPA-registered “Primary Termite Pretreatment” product and is listed in the 2006 International Residential Code.

Bora-Care is Up to the Codes

In addition to EPA registration, Bora-Care wood treatments are HUD-allowed and listed for use under the 2006 International Residential Code, Section R320 Protection Against Subterranean Termites. Only Bora-Care’s EPA-registered label allows it to be used on wood as a stand-alone two-foot barrier termite pretreatment. Bora-Care also meets the sill plate end-cut requirements set by building codes and the American Wood-Preservers’ Association (AWPA M4).

The science behind Bora-Care

Bora-Care is a low toxicity wood preservative that has a low environmental impact. It protects wood and whole structures from most wood destroying organisms including subterranean termites, Formosan termites, drywood termites, wood destroying beetles, carpenter ants, and decay fungi. The active ingredient is the natural borate salt and micronutrient disodium octaborate tetrahydrate (DOT). DOT is a natural form of elemental boron, which is essential for the healthy growth of plants and believed important in human calcium metabolism. Because animals and humans simply take what they need from their diet and rapidly excrete any excess via the kidneys, DOT has a low acute toxicity and Bora-Care is about half as toxic as sodium chloride or table salt (in a laboratory setting), but it’s very effective against insects and fungi that do not have the same excretion mechanisms. DOT maximizes the solubility, the rate of dissolution and the boric oxide content to give a borate active ingredient far superior to traditional boric acid or borax. At the levels used in Bora-Care applications, it prevents pest infestation by inhibiting pest metabolism on a cellular basis. The tetrahydroxyborate anion forms a chelate complex with the cis-adjacent hydroxyl groups in the ribose sugar of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD), with the cationic nitrogen of the nicotinamide moiety providing electrostatic stabilization of the chelate. In this configuration, NAD and NADP cannot be used by the dehydrogenase enzymes of glycolysis, the pentose phosphate pathway or the tricarboxylic acid pathway, and so the cellular energy generating mechanisms, including adenosine triphosphate production, are shut down. This enhanced borate salt is combined with a patented mixture of alkylene and polyalkylene diols for superior penetration and improved efficacy. The resulting borester compounds have superior penetration into dry wood because diffusion can take place at a lower wood moisture content than if the active ingredient was by itself occurring at above 15% moisture content. But more importantly, this results in much higher efficacy against wood destroying organisms, especially against subterranean and drywood termites. As a result, Bora-Care is the only borate material that is EPA-registered as a primary termite pretreatment in new construction and provides by far the best remedial treatment against drywood termites.

When do you use Bora-Care?

New Construction
Homeowners should request Bora-Care for the termite pretreatment of their new homes. Bora-Care replaces old-style soil termiticides which are pumped into the ground under and around the house. Liquid termiticides can break down in just a few years (Mulrooney et al, 2006). Bora-Care eliminates treated wood as a food source for termites. And studies show that termites can’t tube over Bora-Care treated wood. (Amburgey,T.H. and William, L.H. 2001 Mississippi State University)

Existing Homes
Bora-Care is also ideal for eliminating existing infestations. Pest control companies can treat all accessible wood wherever termite infestations exist wall voids can be injected with high pressure mist or foam. They can also treat crawl spaces or any other areas with infested wood.

What does Bora-Care kill and prevent?

Bora-Care prevents and eliminates:

  • Drywood termites
  • Subterranean termites
  • Formosan termites
  • Carpenter ants
  • Powderpost beetles
  • Old house borers
  • PLUS: Bora-Care will kill and prevent wood-decay fungi and algae

Since Bora-Care’s introduction, it has replaced more than 45 million gallons of toxic pesticides that would have been pumped in the ground. That’s a savings equal to 9,400 semi-tanker trucks of pesticide. And that’s an amount we can all live with.

A Closer Look

How Does Bora-Care Work?
The active ingredient in Bora-Care is a borate salt. Borate salts work by taking advantage of a unique feature in the biology of termites, ants and other insects. If ingested by ants, beetles or termites, the insect becomes unable to extract nutrition from its food and starves to death. And because of this unique mode of action, insects cannot develop a resistance, ever. Bora-Care works differently than most other insecticides, termiticides and even other borate products on the market today. For starters, it isn’t applied to the soil but to the structure itself. Secondly, it isn’t just a repellent or a bait but a little bit of each. Bora-Care’s unique patented blend of glycols in combination with a borate salt provides results that are hard to beat. As soon as beetles and ants attempt to consume treated wood they die. Subterranean termites won’t even try to eat treated wood and if they attempt to build a tube on treated wood, the termites start to die. This alerts the termite colony and they abandon the wood.

Treat the Wood, Not the Soil.
Bora-Care is applied directly onto wood surfaces. Bora-Care then penetrates the wood, protecting it throughout. Because the active ingredient in Bora-Care is a mineral salt, it doesn’t break down over time, so it remains in the wood for the life of the wood, providing residual protection. By keeping the wood sealed or protected from moisture as in the wall voids of your home, you eliminate the need for retreatment. Soil treatments are not only more difficult to apply; they lose their effectiveness over time. Then a costly retreatment becomes necessary. Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care is not pumped into the ground and poses no threat to lakes, rivers, aquifers or the environment. Bora-Care can even be used on lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited. Bora-Care’s active ingredient is a natural mineral salt called Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT), which contains the element boron. Boron is an element on the periodic table that is already present in the environment – not only in the ecosystems outside of your home – but also in many of the products you use inside such as soaps and cosmetics. Boron is also found in many of the vegetables we eat.

What does the research say?

Twelve years of efficacy studies and 16 years treatments in the field have shown Bora-Care’s ability to prevent termites and other wood-destroying insects from consuming wood or tubing over treated wood to reach untreated wood. Bora-Care simply eliminates wood as a food source. In addition, hundreds of studies have confirmed borates’ effectiveness as a preservative, including more than 40 studies confirming its wood-protecting power.

Bora-Care prevents subterranean termites from tubing across treated wood and other structural materials. In addition, a study by Louisiana State University demonstrated that even Formosan termites can’t tube over concrete treated with Bora-Care.

Pretreatments can be done quickly

Many states and lending institutions require that new homes have a termite pretreatment conducted by a professional pest control company before the new house can be sold. Pretreating your house with Bora-Care is fast and efficient. With traditional soil treatments, once the footers are dug, but before the cement is poured for the footers, soil termiticides must be pumped into the ground. This stops the construction process. Work cannot continue until the application has dried. If it is raining or wet the soil treatment cannot be applied until the ground has dried. All of these delays cost time and money. Bora-Care is applied directly to the wood in your home any time during the dried-in phase of construction. The pest management professional creates a two-foot horizontal and vertical continuous barrier everywhere the foundation meets the structural materials of your home. This includes walls, piers, interior slab or basement walls, plumbing penetrations, pipe chases, bath traps, and any other foundation penetrations. This insures that all termite entry-points are treated.

Bora-Care is an EPA registered termiticide and is labeled for use as a “primary” termite pretreatment in new construction. This means that Bora-Care has met the 5-year efficacy data requirement set by the EPA. No other borate termiticide has been able to pass this rigorous test. There are numerous borate termiticides on the market, but none come close to matching the performance of Bora-Care. Make sure you specify Bora-Care for your home.

Whole House Treatments
Bora-Care can also be used as a whole house treatment to give the home protection against drywood termites, carpenter ants, wood boring beetles, and to provide general pest protection inside all your walls. Bora-Care will also prevent wood decay.

Infestations are handled with ease
When termites are detected in the wood in your home, ask your pest professional to treat the wood with Bora-Care. While any insecticide will kill the termites that it comes directly into contact with, Bora-Care will penetrate the wood, killing even those termites that cannot be seen or were not detected. With Bora-Care, once the wood is treated it is no longer a food source and termites cannot infest the wood. And Bora-Care will remain in the wood for the life of the wood.

Bora-Care is an EPA-registered “Primary Termite Pretreatment” product and is listed in the 2006 International Residential Code.

Introduction

Bora-Care is a concentrated termiticide, insecticide and fungicide treatment that can be applied to all wood during the dried-in phase of construction. When applied, it diffuses into the wood and remains there for the life of the wood. Termites cannot consume, live in or tube over treated wood. Treatment also provides protection against wood decay, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles. In areas where termite pretreatments are necessary, Bora-Care can be used as a replacement for soil termiticides. Instead of creating a thin barrier of toxic chemicals in the soil, Bora-Care uses the structure itself to prevent infestations. Bora-Care’s active ingredient is a borate mineral salt that is no more toxic than table salt (in laboratory settings). Once applied to wood, Bora-Care diffuses into the wood and remains in the wood for the life of the wood, providing long-term protection.

What does the Research Say?

More than 1,000,000 effectively treated homes can’t be wrong.

More than 1,000,000 effectively treated homes can’t be wrong. Twelve years of efficacy studies to determine Bora-Care’s ability to prevent termites and other wood-eating insects have shown that Bora-Care eliminates wood as a food source for termites. In addition, hundreds of studies have confirmed the effectiveness of borates as a preservative, including more than 40 studies confirming its wood-protecting power.

Studies have shown that just a 2% weight loss from wood decay can reduce the wood strength by as much as 50%. Bora-Care kills and prevents wood decay fungi.

Benefits of Specifying Bora-Care

  1. Soil termiticides can cause CPVC plumbing pipes to leak. Bora-Care is the first termiticide listed as chemically compatible with Noveon piping systems. Bora-Care replaces old-fashioned soil termiticides and has been found to be compatible with the CPVC materials of FlowGuard Gold®, BlazeMaster®, and Corzan® pipe and fittings. FGG/BM® System Compatible indicates that this product has been tested and is monitored on an ongoing basis to assure chemical compatibility. In addition, Bora-Care will not corrode metal fasteners, fittings or nails.
  2. The Sustainable Green Solution. With soil termiticides there is always the concern of chemicals leaching into a nearby water source. The chemicals used in soil termiticides are showing up in trace amounts lakes, rivers and aquifers. Bora-Care can be used on lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited because when you pretreat the wood and concrete with Bora-Care, that’s ALL you treat and the treatment provides residual protection for years. Studies show that soil termiticides begin to lose their effectiveness within the first year. This means a structure will require many treatments during the life of the structure.
  3. Residential builders are saving a full day of cycle time by switching to Bora-Care pretreats. Builders love Bora-Care because it eliminates the need to coordinate schedules between cement companies and pest management professionals (PMPs). With old style soil termiticides, the application must be made after the footers are dug and before the concrete is poured, which is usually a very tight window of time. Bora-Care is applied anytime during the dried-in phase of construction.
  4. Bora-Care eliminates weather delays. Traditional soil treatments require application to dry ground. Bora-Care is applied directly to the wood and concrete on walls, subfloors, sill plates, piers and expansion joints, as well as around pipe chases and plumbing during the dried-in stage of construction. Weather is simply not a factor.
  5. Bora-Care eliminates the need for crews to leave the job site. In traditional soil pretreatments, workers are required by law to leave the site during application and stay away until the application is completed. With Bora-Care, the builders’ crews can keep right on working.
  6. HUD allows Bora-Care treatments. The United States Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) 99-A form allows wood treatments with EPA registered products such as Bora-Care, a primary termite treatment for new home construction.
  7. Efficacy tests show proven results. Research from a 12-year study by the USDA Forest Service and Mississippi State University’s Forest Products Laboratory showed wood treated with Bora-Care stopped termite attacks and prevented subterranean termites from tubing over treated wood. In addition, tests conducted at Louisiana State University have shown that Bora-Care applied to concrete surfaces will prevent Formosan termite tubing. Treated wood is also protected against carpenter ants, old house borers, powderpost beetles and decay fungi.
  8. International building code. Bora-Care has been evaluated for use under the International Building Code and the International Residential Code. Bora-Care meets the sill plate end-cut requirements set by building codes and the American Wood-Preservers’ Association (AWPA M4).
  9. Excavation and landscaping do not affect the treatment. Leaky water lines, improper drainage and even the landscaping process can break a soil termiticide barrier, rendering soil pretreatments ineffective by the time the house is complete. With Bora-Care, you’re treating the wood, and once again, a problem is eliminated.

For Protection against subterranean Termites

A 1+1 solution of water and Bora-Care is applied by the pest control company in a 2-foot band around the home to prevent infesations by subterranean termites. The structure is sprayed with a continuous two foot barrier wherever the home comes into contact with the foundation. Additionally, plumbing and other foundation penetrations, concrete and bath traps are also treated.

For Drywood termites and Wood Decay

The pest control company can apply a 5+1 solution of water and Bora-Care to all structural wood to protect against drywood termites, wood decay and other insects.

Bora-Care is made with natural elements that are already present in the environment – not only in the ecosystems outside of your home – but also in many of the products you use inside. Bora-Care can even be used on lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited.

Bora-Care prevents subterranean termites from tubing across wood. In addition, a study by Louisiana State University demonstrated that even Formosan termites can’t tube over concrete treated with Bora-Care. Use Bora-Care on new construction.

A Closer Look at the Benefits of Bora-Care

Penetrates wood and remains for the life of the wood

A patented mixture of borates, glycol and other ingredients cause Bora-Care to penetrate the wood far deeper than any other borate product available. Which means the wood is protected longer, homeowners are happier and builders are growing their businesses quicker.

Formulated with a concern for the environment

As consumers become more environmentally conscious, Bora-Care continues to be the prime choice for those looking to protect our surroundings. Unlike soil treatments, Bora-Care is not a threat to lakes, rivers or aquifers. With its borate-based formula, Bora-Care is made with natural mineral salts that are already present in the ecosystems outside of our homes. You’ll also find boron in many of the products we use and consume such as cosmetics and vegetables.

Not pumped into soil

When you pre-treat wood and concrete with Bora-Care, that’s all you treat. Soil treatments, one of the main concerns is that hundreds of gallons of pesticides are pumped directly into the ground, where they could spread. Bora-Care can even be used on lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited.
