  • Product Overview

    Bora-Care is a termiticide, insecticide and fungicide liquid concentrate that can be applied to all cellulose / wood materials to control or protect against termites, carpenter ants, wood boring beetles, and wood decay fungi. Upon application, Bora-Care absorbs into the wood and remains indefinitely, creating a protected zone that termites are unable to consume or live in.


  • Benefits & Use

    Unlike liquid soil termiticides that bring a concern for chemicals leaching into nearby water sources and may have certain use restrictions, Bora-Care can be used on lakeside homes where soil termiticides may be prohibited. Bora-Care maintains its integrity and continues protecting the treated structure for many years following application.
  • Target Pests

    Bora-Care may be used to control or protect against subterranean termites, drywood termites, formosan termites, powderpost beetles, old house borers, carpenter ants, fungi, and algae.

    Please refer to the Bora-Care product label for a complete list of approved target pests.
