Stained and oiled acacia wood block tables that have powder post beetles. Sanded, will Bora Care penetrate acacia?
I realize I'd have to sand these before application. Wondering if painting Bora Care on will even penetrate these 12 inch block tables.

Bora Care only penetrates wood up to 2" thick. If you sprayed a 4" x 4" woodblock on all sides it would penetrate over time into the center. There is no product I am aware of that will penetrate wood 12" thick. Even some gases such as Vikane have a hard time penetrating wood that thick. The species of the wood can matter some too. If Acacia is a very hard wood, then penetration is that much more difficult. You might want to talk to someone locally who does fumigations and get their opinion.
