PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:       This gel is designed to be applied into wood. Once applied, it’s formulation will enable it to penetrate throughout the treated area. This enables superior coverage when pests are in solid wood and traditional liquid treatments won’t reach where the pests are doing the damage. It has no odor and will last several years.

TARGET PESTS:      Termites, Powder Post Beetles, Old House Borers, Carpenter Ants, Mold, Mildew, Fungus and other wood infesting pests and algae.

WHERE TO USE IT:      Jecta Gel has a wide range of application sites. This includes cabinets, dressers, fine furniture, framing, molding, tables, chairs, works of art, structural members like sill plate, floor joists, rafters, window frames, door frames, posts used for decks and mail boxes, pilings on which houses are built, trellis, staircases, and just about any wood where protection or control is needed for wood infesting pests or fungus.


RATE OF APPLICATION:   This varies depending on the thickness of the wood and whether or not you are applying it for control or for prevention. Refer to the table above for general guidelines but if you need help, you can email us for more specific directions. Since each tube has about 300 cc’s, you should be able to calculate how much you’ll need once you know the dimensions of the wood and how many linear feet you need to treat.

TOOLS NEEDED:    Jecta Gel is packaged in “caulking tubes” which fit any standard caulking gun. So for most jobs, you’ll need a drill to drill holes a long with a 1/4″, 3/8″ or 1/2″ drill bit. You’ll also need a caulking gun to inject the gel.

RELATED PRODUCT:       3/8″ CORKS   (use these to seal holes)

I have a door frame made of cherry wood and the borer has made a 1/2 cm hole in the bottom part of the farthest part of the three door frame(French doors). Must I take apart all of the frame and put the wood through a gassing process of up to six days as the exterminator recommended? Or would the Jecto gel do a sufficient job and I can be relived of taking apart the whole door, windows, etc., etc?? I live in Israel and wood borers are not as common as in the United states I believe?!

Hi. I live in North Carolina and recently had a barn wood wall installed in my living room. Supposedly, it was fired in a kiln to kill pests but that didn’t work. We just have a few places in the wall where I occasionally see wood “dust” from the insects. An exterminator said we have to remove the wall, treat the wood then reinstall. I need to try something else first. I’d like to try the Jecta Gel in the obvious holes and in the seams of the wood. What do you think? And, will it change the color of the wood in any way. It’s unfinished.

I have a piece of very large and expensive furniture that has an active infestation of powder post beetles. It is varnished and painted so according to my online research, Boracare will not work. My pest control company does not treat this, so I am taking on this project myself. I am willing to drill holes in the back of the furniture (as it is against a wall) and inject the Jecta Gel…is this what I should do? Any direction in this matter would be much appreciated, thanks!

We received a large wood carving for Christmas which has sat out in our garage all winter that we would like to bring into our cabin but have noticed numerous small holes with wood dust around them. What would you suggest using to treat this problem?

I built a bed out of blue pine for my son. A few months later there are bugs coming out of the wood into his bedroom. Is jecta gel safe to use for a child’s bed?

I have some expensive cabinets that have granite on top and are painted white. I am seeing powder post beetles because i have holes. What should i do? Do i have to take the whole kitchen down or do i have to use jecta gel in every single piece of the kitchen?
