I’m having my log cabin stained with a water base stain. Can I add bora care, and what ratio?

Want to protect against carpenter bees and powderpost beetles.


Boracare should not be mixed with the stain. Boracare needs to be applied to bare wood and allowed to dry completely before applying the stain. The product label recommends a 1:1 ratio for preventing powder post beetles in logs. Please note that Boracare is not specifically labeled for carpenter bees and has not been tested for this pest.
