Timbor is a water soluble borate powder that diffuses into wood and acts as a wood insecticide, fungicide and preservative.  This borate powder can be used as a solution (mix with water and spray on wood) and can also be used in its original dry formulation for treating attics, crawl spaces and wall voids.
Timbor is a dry product that can be mixed with water to create a liquid borate wood spray or can be used in its original, dry form to dust wall voids and attics.  When mixing for wood beetle or termite spray, use 1.5 pound of Timbor per gallon of water.  This gallon of mixed borate solution will cover 200 square feet of wood.
When using Timbor as a dry insecticide dust it can be applied to small cracks and crevices, between and beneath strips of insulation with a Hand Bellows Duster.  When broadcasting larger volume of product use an electric power duster for best coverage and ease of application.
Tim-bor may be used as a solution, powder or foam.  Two applications of 10% solution or one application of 15% solution can be typically be applied to wood surfaces by brush or spray.
Mix 1 pound of Timbor per gallon of water to make 10% solution. To make a 15% solution, mix 1.5 pounds of Timbor per gallon of water.
Application of the solution may also be made by drilling and then injecting under pressure into sound wood or the galleries of infested wood. As a foam, Tim-bor may be applied directly to wood surfaces or injected into insect galleries, or wall voids.
Timbor is available in two sizes: a 25 pound pail and 1.5 pound bag.  For small jobs, 1 or more bags are all that is needed.  For larger jobs, the pail is better.  Timbor is not as desirable a product as Boracare when treating furniture. Boracare will dry clear when applied correctly; Timbor can leave visible residue on treated surfaces.

Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate  is a natural form of elemental boron, which is essential for the healthy growth of plants and believed important in human calcium metabolism. Because animals and humans simply take what they need from their diet and rapidly excrete any excess via the kidneys, DOT has a low acute toxicity. As a result, Tim-bor Professional is about half as toxic as sodium chloride or table salt (in a laboratory setting), but very effective against insects and fungi that do not have the same excretion mechanismsTimbor borate insecticide is labeled for treating wood against infestations of termites, powder post beetles, wood decay fungi, carpenter ants, Drywood termites, old house borers and other wood destroying beetles, wood destroying organisms.
Targeted Decay Fungi: white rot, brown rot (i.e. Poria) and wet rots.
