rid old barn wood of bugs
by Cynthia Kulak
(Cary, NC USA)
I have acquired some barn wood locally but it has been in a pile in the woods. I have sprinkled Board Defense a termite, insecticide and fungicide concentrate on the boards and have left them in my garage. I want to use them on a wall in my boys mancave on top of the drywall.
My husband has some concern that the boards need to be sanded and sealed with a polyeurathane in order to make sure that there are no bugs, however that defeats the look that I want. I want it to remain in as much of the original state as possible. What is your recommendation?
Thank you for any help,
