PREVENTION

Due to the recent devastating Hurricane events, we are now offering pretreatments for the prevention of:

TERMITES, WOOD DESTROYING INSECTS, ALGAE, and WOOD-DECAY FUNGI!  

                                         

Ballard’s Professional Pest Control exclusively uses Nisus Corporation products, including BORA-CARE and TIM-BOR, when pretreating your home or building.     

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.  BORA-CARE is a powerful, effective preventative termite treatment. 

BORA-CARE is proven effective to kill and prevent:

  • 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  
  • Penetrates the wood and remains there for the life of the wood, providing residual protection
  • Reduces the need to pump pesticides into the ground, thus removing a threat to the environment, or water supply

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 .
