Tim-bor®

Formulated with a concern for the environment, Tim-bor is used for the control of carpenter ants, drywood termites, wood decay fungi and wood boring beetles. As water soluble borate powder, Tim-bor diffuses into the wood and acts as a wood insecticide, fungicide and preservative. Tim-bor won’t break down over time like most organic compounds, therefore offering longer lasting protection. Best of all, Tim-bor is virtually odorless and has no known resistance.

Timbor is a natural insecticide and fungicide that is widely used as wood preservative and protectant. It is composed of nearly pure sodium borate, a mined crystalline form of boron with comes from the earth itself.

Timbor is sold as a water soluble powder in 10kg buckets. 1 kg bag makes 10 litres of working solution. Two coats, applied with a pump sprayer or paint roller, are often needed, see label instructions. The dry powder can also be used to treat wall voids for borer and ants. Like other borate-based wood preservatives, Timbor is generally not available in stores but is available from us as our own branded product Pestbor.
