I am having so much trouble eradicating pests, in particular some borers. The damage is such that I am concerned about structure problems. Orkin has taken couple of thousand dollars to no solution. I can not ship products over the can/us border and I can not find any borates in our province of Ontario. I live 2hrs north of Toronto, Canada. I am desperate for help and can find no log home restorers for advice or help. What can I do? I have tried antifreeze as well to no avail. There must be a solution, it has come to a severe fungus growths, active borer nests and cavities of damage that I can't get control of without help. Any solution at this point would be helpful or Canadian distributor, preferably in Ontario, for borates or other products I could use to repair my home. Im almost ready to give up because not only am I concerned about structure but also my family's health with the fungus overgrowth. thanks
