Use Wood Polishes

Wood polishes are a great way to treat your home wood, keeping it in optimal condition, while protecting the structure against termites. Polishing the exterior with specially designed products can impact the termite’s senses and limit their ability to find and chew through the wood in the home.

Apply Borate Solution

For a more long-term and comprehensive level of protection against termites, you can also treat wood such as lumber with a borate solution. The solution is highly toxic to wood-boring insects and exhibits a low level of toxicity to humans, making it the ideal product for use in the treatment of wood within the home.
