Board Defense is applied as a dust or solution (mixed with water) for treatment of wood against wood destroying organisms and for general insect and fungus control. When applied as a solution, Board Defense will use the moisture present in wood to penetrate deep into the board. Since Board Defense does not break down, the active ingredient will be drawn deeper into the wood over time. This provides long lasting and effective protection.

Board Defense is effective against decay, fungi, termites, beetles, carpenter ants, cockroaches, ants, silverfish and crickets. Board Defense is a slow acting stomach poison to insects and an instant contact poison to wood rot and fungi. As wood destroying insects and their larvae carry on their normal activities, they accumulate Board Defense in their systems. A buildup of Board Defense eventually poisons the insect. Board Defense is used as the first step in System Three Resins' EndRot System for wood rot repair to make sure that the wood destroying organisms are destroyed before it is repaired and patched.
