Overview Nisus Corporation is a manufacturer of a line of pesticides that are formulated with a concern for people, pets and the environment. We help builders save time and money and protect their structures. Our Bora-Care product will save you one full day of cycle time by replacing soil treatments for termites. And our whole house treatment using Bora-Care with Mold-Care is a great add-on sale that kills existing mold in lumber and prevents mold from growing. Both products are applied by your pest control company and can be done during the dried-in phase of construction.
Why Us? Nisus' mission is to provide homeowners, Pest Management Professionals (PMPs), and distributors with strong, effective products that kill unwanted pests while providing the lowest possible impact to the environment.
Borates have long been used as a safer alternative to highly volatile, synthetic chemical pesticides. The pesticide qualities of borates have been used for at least 300 years. To stop decay or insects, builders and homeowners can apply borates to existing wood.
Borates go directly on the wood and not into the soil. Borates kill termites and other wood-eating insects by poisoning the microogranisms in the insects' digestive tracts that are needed to break down the wood's cellulose. In other words, the termites starve to death.
Bora-Care Termiticide, Insecticide and Fungicide has been designated as a "Green Approved
Product" for new construction termite prevention by the National Green Building Certification program of NAHB.
Nisus received Certification #00027 from the NAHB Research Center and is now listed on the web
site (http://greenapprovedproducts.com) as a Green Approved Product under NAHB Practice #602.8.
