        Termite control,
        Used this stinky stuff and it works great. The smell did go away. Also used redwood stain after and some wood e as stained first but still same results. and somehow the Copper Green enhanced end result of the fence we built.

          I've been using this product for years ,especially when I cut lumber I paint the ends. This time I used it after I replaced the wooden floor of my car carrier. It gives the wood added protection from the wet weather

          First attribute I noticed was the scent of the green is much more tolerable than the brown. I purchased the brown once & regret it for that reason. This preservative definitely repels water. As for the prevention of dry rot & insect infestation I have no sign of either after a couple years. For best results make sure your wood is bone dry so it’ll absorb as much copper green as possible & coat 2 times waiting an hour or so before second coat. The sun will accelerate absorption. Wear safety glasses, it’s not a pleasant experience to have it in your eyes. Be careful not to be down wind during application or to let the brush bristles flick off the edge of the wood. Tiny mist size droplets will come off & float elsewhere, like on your body. I highly recommend this product, just be careful to keep it in the wood & nowhere else. I wouldn’t recommend it for anything people or pets could touch, like a deck floor. I mainly use it on posts, fence framing & under the house.

          It was easy to paint my wood fence with the wood preservative; still has a hard odor , but l like, it prevents insects to come near the new wood fence.
