What Is Borate Powder?
Posted by Lovitt's Coatings on 3/15/2022 to Applying Borates
Borate is a mineral that is mined from California. When borate is applied to wood, it makes the wood poisonous, so pests will not feed on the treated wood. If borate powder or a wood product containing or coated with borate powder is consumed, it kills the microorganisms that produce enzymes in the insect’s stomach, which means the insect cannot absorb nutrients and will die.
