Just bought a log cabin in Grangeville, Idaho. This cabin was built on 2007. The pervious owner said to spray the logs to keeps any bugs from getting into the logs. What would be the best thing to spray the logs with.


Borate is what is sprayed on the logs to keep the bugs "out of the logs". It stops boring insects except for carpenter bees. The problem is that it can only be applied to bare wood to work.
