DANGER
PRECAUTIONARY STATEMENTS
Hazards to Humans and Domestic Animals
DANGER:
Corrosive. Causes irreversible eye
damage and skin burns. May be fatal if swallowed
or inhaled. Harmful if absorbed through skin. Do
not get in eyes, on skin or on clothing. Wear
goggles or face shield, protective clothing and
impervious gloves. Do not breathe dust, vapor or
spray mist. Wash thoroughly with soap and water
after handling and before eating, drinking and using
tobacco.
Individuals who enter pressure treatment cylinders
and other related equipment that are contaminated
with the wood treatment solution (e.g. cylinders that
are in operation or are not free of the treatment
solution) must wear protective clothing including
overalls, jacket, gloves and boots impervious to the
wood treatment formulation. Federal, state and
local confined space entry procedures must be
followed.
Applicators must not eat or drink, or use tobacco
products during those parts of the application
process that may expose them to the wood
treatment
formulation
(e.g.,
manually
opening/closing cylinder doors, moving trams out of
cylinders, mixing chemicals, handling freshly
treated wood).
Discard clothing and other absorbent materials that
have been drenched or heavily contaminated. Do
not reuse them. Follow manufacturer’s instructions
for cleaning/maintaining protective equipment. If no
such instructions exist for washables, use detergent
and hot water.
Keep and wash protective
equipment separate from other laundry.
FIRST AID
If In Eyes: Hold eye open and rinse slowly and
gently with water for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove
contact lenses, if present, after the first 5 minutes,
then continue rinsing eye. Call a poison control
center or doctor for treatment advice. If On Skin
Or Clothing: Take off contaminated clothing. Rinse
skin immediately with plenty of water for 15 – 20
minutes. Call a poison control center or doctor for
treatment advice.
If Swallowed: Call a poison
control center or doctor immediately for treatment
advice. Have person sip a glass of water if able to
swallow. Do not induce vomiting unless told to do
so by the poison control center or doctor. Do not
give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
If Inhaled: Move person to fresh air. If person is not
breathing, call 911 or an ambulance, then give
artificial respiration, preferably mouth-to-mouth, if
possible. Call a poison control center or doctor for
further treatment advice.
Have the product container or label with you when
calling a poison control center or doctor or going for
treatment.
Note to Physician: Probable mucosal damage
may contraindicate the use of gastric lavage.
Measures against circulatory shock, respiratory
depression and convulsion may be needed.
ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARDS
This product is toxic to fish. Do not contaminate
water by cleaning of equipment or disposal of wash
waters.
PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL HAZARDS
Do not use or store near heat or open flame.

storage or disposal.
Pesticide Storage: Do not store on side. Avoid
creasing or impacting of side walls. Pesticide
Disposal: Pesticide wastes are acutely hazardous.
Improper disposal of excess pesticide, spray
mixture or rinsate is a violation of Federal law. If
these pesticides cannot be disposed of by use
according to label instructions, contact your State
Pesticide or Environmental Control Agency, or the
Hazardous Waste representative at the nearest
EPA Regional Office for guidance. Container
Disposal: Triple rinse (or equivalent). Then offer
for recycling or reconditioning, or puncture and

I.
MIXING INSTRUCTIONS
Bora-Care® is a concentrate that must be diluted with clean water before use. The use of warm or hot water, if available,
and an impeller-type mixer that can be used with an electric drill aids the dilution process.
For mold control, mix 1 pint of Mold-CareTM Moldicide Concentrate with 1 gallon of Bora-Care® in 5 gallons of water
following the procedures below:
A.
Hand Sprayers: Mix in a clean container and stir the solution until completely uniform. Always mix in a separate
container then add the solution to a spray tank. Mixing Bora-Care® solutions directly in a spray tank can block hoses and
nozzles.
B.
Hand Volume Pumping Systems: Add all of the dilution water to tank, start recirculator, then slowly add BoraCare® and Mold-CareTM Moldicide Concentrate concentrates. Mix until uniform.
The solution will remain stable for up to 30 days. Do not leave unused solution under pressure or in tank overnight.
Clean and/or flush equipment and lines with water after use.
II.
GENERAL INFORMATION
Bora-Care® is an innovative termiticide, insecticide and fungicide that provides long term protection against:
Brown Rot (including dry rot), White Rot, Wood Decay, Molds and Other Fungi
Powderpost Beetles: Lyctidae, Bostrichidae
Anobiid Beetles: Anobiidae
Old House Borers, Longhorn Beetles: Cerambycidae, Hylotrupes
Bora-Care® may be used on all cellulosic materials including wood, plywood, particle board, paper, oriented strand board
(OSB), cardboard and wood composite structural components.
For tracking purposes (to make it easier to see where Bora-Care® solutions have been applied) an appropriate marker
dye or pigment may be added to the solution when diluting Bora-Care® with water. Refer to the dye or pigment product
label for recommended amount to add to the Bora-Care® solution.
Use soap and water to clean up tools.
III.
PREVENTATIVE AND/OR PRETREATMENT FOR WHOLE HOUSE PROTECTION
Perform pretreatment at a point during the construction process when the greatest access to all wood members is
available. Normally this is at the “dried-in” stage of construction when all structural wood and sheathing is in place, yet
prior to installation of insulation, mechanical systems, electrical wiring, etc.
Treat wood in all plumbing, electrical and ductwork areas where they penetrate walls or floors. Treat all base plates and
studs on interior and exterior walls, especially those surrounding any high moisture areas such as bathrooms, kitchens
and laundry rooms. For buildings built on slabs, treat all wood in contact with the slab, all interior and exterior wall studs
and wall sheathing material. In attics, treat all wood including ceiling joists, trusses, top plates, rafters and roof decking.
Be sure that all sill plates and wood contacting garages and porches are treated.
In areas where access is limited to one (1) or two (2) sides of a wood member, apply two (2) coats of solution to the
exposed surfaces. Wait at least 20 minutes between applications.
Treat all exterior wood including siding, facias, soffits, eaves, roofing, porches, decks and railings (refer to Section V for
complete exterior application information).
IV.
PREVENTATIVE TREATMENT FOR POWDERPOST BEETLES
Apply two coats of solution to all wood surfaces to the point of wetness using a brush, spray or mist. Wait at least 20
minutes between applications.
V.
TREATMENT OF EXTERIOR WOOD SURFACES LESS THAN TWO INCHES THICK SUCH AS
DECKS, SHEDS, SIDING AND FENCES
Apply only to bare wood or to wood surfaces where an intact water repellent or finish is not present. If necessary, remove
paint or finish prior to application. Apply to the point of wetness one (1) coat of solution to all wood surfaces. Apply two
(2) coats of solution to heavily infested areas and to those surfaces where access is limited to one (1) or two (2) sides of
wood members. Do not apply in rain or snow. Do not expose treated exterior wood surfaces to rain or snow for at least
48 hours after treatment. If inclement weather is expected, protect exterior treated surfaces with a plastic tarp.
For wood in contact with the ground or soil, see Section VII.
A.
Finishing and Maintaining Treated Surfaces: For long-term protection, exterior wood surfaces that have been
treated with Bora-Care® solutions will require a topcoating with a water-resistant finish such as paint or exterior stain.
Apply the finish or topcoat within six (6) weeks of treatment. It is important to allow Bora-Care® treated wood to
completely dry (at least 48 hours) before applying any protective topcoat. Coat a small section of treated wood with the
finish to be used and check for compatibility prior to complete application.
VI.
DIP TREATING LOGS AND LUMBER
Prepare a dip treating solution by following the mixing instructions in Section I. This will result in a stable solution
containing 9% active boron. Sticker bundled wood to ensure the solution covers all wood surfaces. Submerge logs
and/or lumber in the solution for at least one (1) minute or until all entrapped air has escaped. Protect treated wood from
rain or snow for at least 24 hours after treatment.
VII.
TREATMENT OF WOOD IN CONTACT WITH THE GROUND
A Bora-Care® treatment to wood in contact with the ground or soil has a limited lifespan and will require periodic
reapplication. Protection may be extended with the use of products such as Jecta® Diffusible Boracide.
