Hi there,
My builder did not use any pest protectant on my log home and I didn’t realize that he should have. Is there something you recommend that I can treat the wood with now – it’s already been stained & varnished and will be finished in a week. I’ve seen carpenter ants crawling along the outside, some kind of bug nests along the logs on the outside. I just have a feeling their planning to have a field day with my house! What can I do now? I’m moving into the house in less than 10 days!

I would recommend having a local exterminator do his thing at this point. It is too late to put a borate treatment on since it must be applied to bare wood. Most contractors that do not work on log homes know this.
