coats by brush, or low pressure sprayer: Boron Ultra 12 only kills wood boring

European reclassification of Pesticides has resulted in our Borax product having
to carry a warning label (for the first time since 1890) on all products used
at over 5.5% BAE concentration. This label is a warning that if you eat the product
and then became pregnant you might give birth to a slightly underweight
baby, or, if you are a male, suffer a slight reduction in the size of your testes.
The tests, on rats, required them to eat the human equivalent of 18 level teaspoons
full of Borate (DOT) per day for 2 years. We believe that you are unlikely to
do this and the lack of any other negative evidence, despite the severe European
Review process, suggests that this product is very safe indeed.
treatment products do not need to even reach the 5% concentration level to be
effective, so are not subject to any additional labelling, because of their unblemished
