Tim-bor Professional Insecticide and Fungicide has been used by pest control companies for more than 20 years to kill and prevent drywood termites.
Tim-bor Professional can be sprayed onto wood by Pest Management Professionals (PMPs) for the control of carpenter ants, drywood termites, wood decay fungi and wood boring beetles. It is a water soluble borate powder that can be applied as a dust, spray, foam or mist onto wood and cellulosic materials or inside wall voids, cracks and crevices. Depending on the moisture content of the materials, the liquid solution will penetrate to create a protective envelope, acting as a preservative, insecticide and fungicide. The dust provides an additional layer of protection by killing carpenter ants, drywood alates and adult wood boring beetles that enter the structure and pass through it.

Tim-bor Professional How it Works
Tim-bor Professional’s active ingredient is Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT), a natural borate mineral salt and micronutrient. It is manufactured for use in the form of a water-soluble borate powder. Once it’s applied in a liquid form by foaming, misting or spraying onto wood or other cellulosic materials, the borate active ingredient creates a protective envelope and remains for years of protection. Often Tim-bor Professional is dusted into places like wall voids where pests like to hide as an additional protection. When the dust gets on the insects, they clean themselves and consume the boron during the cleaning process.
