We are getting ready to clean, stain, and seal our log house. Can borate be mixed with stain or seal and applied together?

No. It must be applied to bare wood first. You are wasting your money and time if you apply it to ood with any sort of finish. The best type has a glycol base which slows the dry time and allows the borate to penatrate the wood fiber better. Shell Guard is a good choice.
