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 .
