Hi, I live in San Diego and was wondering what is the proper ratio to mix Bora-Care for termite control? What is the proper ratio for fungus control? I understand they are different ratios depending on application.
If you review the BORACARE LABEL, you’ll see it does indeed have a variable rate. In fact it ranges from 1:1, 2:1, 3:1 or 5:1 (the first number is for the water; the second number for the BORACARE).
Assuming you have drywood termites, the rates listed are 1:1 or 2:1. For fungus, its 1:1, 3:1 or 5:1.
In summary, the rates are pretty equal so our best advice is that if you were concerned about both, use either a 1:1 or 2:1 mixture and you’ll get control of both. But using a 3:1 or 5:1 would only be effective on fungus.
