Nature’s Way is proud to use BORA-CARE® products as part of our Green Approach to pest control. Bora-Care is both a bait and a repellant for insects, which uses borate salt to target a unique feature of insect biology. When borate salt is ingested, termites, ants and other insects become unable to extract nutrition from their food, and starve.
By treating wood and other structural materials in a home with Bora-Care, the insect’s food source is simply eliminated. The borate salt penetrates the wood and does not break down over time, so protection lasts for the life of the wood. Subterranean termites won’t even try to eat treated wood, or tube over treated surfaces to reach untreated wood, and as soon as carpenter ants attempt to build a tube on treated wood, they die, the colony is alerted, and they abandon the source.
