Common Questions From Our Network of Pros
No. Carpenter Bees don’t actually ingest the wood, so they are not affected by borate treatments.
As with all borate products, the answer is no. In order for Tim-bor to perform its intended function, it has to penetrate into bare, clean wood. If a coating exists on the wood surface, it acts as a barrier to the Tim-bor/water solution, prohibiting penetration and retention.
No. Tim-bor is only effective if allowed to soak into the barewood and create a «shell» of protection. If used in the stain itself, it won’t mix in properly and any that is left will simply leech out of the surface quickly. It needs to be used under a stain of some kind.
