Bora-Care, a borate-based termiticide manufactured by the Nisus Corporation, is now available to pest management professionals in 5-gallon containers as well as the traditional 1-gallon size. Nisus developed Bora-Care to address many pest control concerns. It is a termiticide, insecticide and fungicide that offers an innovative approach for the control and elimination of termites. Bora-Care is not a soil treatment but rather is applied directly to the wood during the dried-in phase of construction. Bora-Care diffuses deep into the wood and eliminates active infestations of termites, as well as beetles, carpenter ants and decay fungi.
In addition, Bora-Care provides long-term protection against future infestations. Nisus reports that Bora-Care is an environmentally sound method of termite treatment, is more cost effective, has less odor and work crews are not required to leave the job site during application. For those states that require soil treatments, Bora-Care can be used alongside these typical treatments to assure protection. The Nisus Corporation gives pest management professionals a five-year manufacturer’s warranty on Bora-Care.
