    Q
    Does Boracare control carpenter bees?
    A

    No, Boracare is not labeled for carpenter bees.

    For carpenter bees, we would recommend using our Carpenter Bee Kit. It has everything you need to do a complete treatment for bees.

    Please also check out our Carpenter Bee Guide for more tips on how to treat and prevent them in the future.

    Q
    Will it work on carpenter bees
    A
    Bora-care is more food wood destroying pests that ingest the wood rather than just tear at it like carpenter bees do. While some carpenter bees may die from ingesting some of the Boracare particles if its already been applied to raw wood they are drilling into, it would not be considered the best option for them. You can review our Carpenter Bee Control Guide to see the best tips and products used for eliminating and preventing carpenter bees throughout the season.

    Q
    Can Boracare be used with Pro Foam?
    I saw some termites and had exterminator come out and treated only the outside. He stated I had subterranean termites, used dominion and stakes. Noe I see flying ones in my house. I want to buy Bora-Care can I use it with Pro Foam? Or should I use Bora-Care the way it comes. I plan on spraying the attic and into the walls. Any other tips?
    A

    Yes  Boracare can be used as a foam in wall voids. You should only be concerned about getting the foam near the wood and studs.  Typically when a company foams walls, they drill holes at the top of the ceiling on either side of the studs and foam down the stud from the ceiling.  This way you have gravity working in your favor and you are getting the foam against the wood which is all that matters. You will need a foaming agent and a poly foamer. You will mix 2 gallons of hot water with 1 gallon of Boracare. For raw, untreated wood that you're able to access, you would apply Bora-Care by itself at a 1:1 ratio.

    Q
    Is there a temperature requirement for treating with Boracare?
    I am treating the interior of a barn for powder post beetles. I know the product should not be stored in freezing temperatures but can the product be applied if the temperature is below freezing? Will it interfere with absorption?
    A
    You really want to avoid applying any product in below freezing temperatures because the water part of the mixture can separate and freeze. Do try to apply on a day where the temperatures are above freezing.
