Shell-Guard provides the ultimate protection against insects and wood
rot for your log home. This new generation of preservative combines the
well-known effectiveness of borates with a glycol system that increases
the penetration into the wood to enhance the action of the borate.
Shell-Guard is colorless and odorless. The glycols used are the same type as those found in many food and skin care products.
Shell-Guard is a concentrate that is mixed with an equal amount of
water, then applied to bare wood with a brush or as a spray. Once in the
wood, it will kill those insects that eat wood such as wood boring
beetles and termites. It also kills the types of fungi that are
responsible for rot and decay. Shell-Guard makes wood toxic to wood
The best thing about Shell-Guard is that one application will last
the life of your home as long as the exterior surfaces are maintained
with a quality, water resistant stain such as Lifeline.
