Borax . If you’re looking for an ecological way to treat timber and kill wood worm in Portugal you have come to the right place. We use borax and a range of other solutions to prevent and destroy wood worm. Borax is often described as a safe chemical for home use. It is still a chemical and should be treated with care especially during application. Our teams wear full chemical resistant suits, gloves and specialist full face vapor poof masks when applying the treatment.
Borax sodium tetraborate decahydrate (to use its full name) solution is sprayed onto all timer surfaces at very high pressure this ensures a thorough coverage and forces the treatment to access all the holes and crevices that brushing or aerosols just cant reach.
It’s important to note that every area that you leave untreated is an area were the wood worm problem will persist and spread. Even the most focused DIY wood worm treatment will not be as complete as our professional service.
Timber “A” is a cut through section of the timber above. Its placed next to a section of normal timber for comparison.
