Bill from Beckley, Wv writes

Can I use Boracare to treat powder post beetles in a 3 year old pressure treated fence?

Since the bugs are drilling does this mean the pressure treatment has worn off and I can use Boracare? It is not stained or painted.


Yes, you can apply Bora-Care to pressure treated wood as long as there is not any kind of paint, stain, or water sealant already on the wood. Be sure you apply Boracare at a 1:1 diluation ratio with water for active insect infestations. You should then apply a water sealant to the wood after the Boracare has dried for best results.
