A Closer Look

Tim-bor Professional is a fast and efficient way to treat a structure for target pests. It can be used as a wood preservative, fungicide and insecticide on its own or in conjunction with other treatments as a supplement. Because of its application flexibility as a dust or liquid, your Pest Management Professional can apply it as a dust, spray, foam or mist onto wood and cellulose building materials or inside wall voids, cracks and crevices.

The active ingredient in Tim-bor Professional is a natural borate mineral salt with a low mammalian toxicity and has no known resistance.

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 against carpenter ants, drywood termite alates and adult wood boring beetles. When the dust gets on the insects, they clean themselves and consume the boron during the cleaning process.
