KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Nisus Corporation announced an important milestone of 2 million homes pretreated with Bora-Care in the U.S.
On May 24, B&B Exterminating Company of Jacksonville, Fla., treat the 2 millionth home with Bora-Care. The home is being built by Providence Homes in the beautiful Liberty Cove at Crosswater subdivision in Nocatee.
On site for the treatment were representatives from Nisus, Providence Homes and B&B Exterminating
“We have been very deliberate and methodical in working to transform the building and pest control industries to utilize a more sustainable termite treatment,” says Lee Barrett, Nisus Vice President, Pest Control Division.
Since builders started using Bora-Care, they have saved 637 million gallons of termiticides from being pumped into the ground, Nisus reports. Providence Homes, along with other builders across the country, has adopted Bora-Care treatments because they eliminate the wood as a food source rather than treating the soil under a home. Bora-Care is cost-effective and easy to integrate into their building process and it saves up to one full day of cycle time. The active ingredient in Bora-Care is a borate mineral salt which penetrates and remains in the wood for the life of the wood. Treating during construction is ideal because it’s the only time you have access to all of the wood, according to Nisus. Bora-Care is also backed by a renewable 30-Year Limited Warranty for the pest company.
B&B Exterminating has been serving Jacksonville since 1938 and is still family owned and operated. Ranked as one of the top five pest control companies in Jacksonville by the Jacksonville Business Journal, B&B’s first interest is to protect their clients’ homes and families from the ground up.
“Termites are a big problem in Florida and you need a strong arsenal to combat them. Applying Bora-Care to the home creates a tremendous first line of defense,” says Cliff Wheeler, Manager of B&B Exterminating Company.
