The active ingredient in Tim-bor Professional is Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT), a natural mineral salt with a low mammalian toxicity and no known resistance.

Tim-bor Professional has strong brand awareness and a long history of effectiveness in the market place. Because it is well known in the industry, it is often requested by name, delivering a strong confidence factor for PMPs.

How It Works

Tim-bor Professional's active ingredient is Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT), a natural borate mineral salt and micronutrient. It is manufactured for use in the form of a water-soluble borate powder. Once it's applied in a liquid form by foaming, misting or spraying onto wood or other cellulosic materials, the borate active ingredient creates a protective envelope and remains for years of protection. Often Tim-bor Professional is dusted into places like wall voids where pests like to hide as an additional protection. When the dust gets on the insects, they clean themselves and consume the boron during the cleaning process.

Please refer to and follow the instructions on the Product label.
