Are you plagued with WOOD BEES, wood ants, carpenter bees, carpenter ants, lady bugs, wasps and other nuisance insects?

Insect remediation is high on every homeowner’s To-do list. The sad fact is that insects are an inevitable presence especially in log cabins, decks, porches and wooden lodges that are designed to keep owners close to nature—birds, wildlife, and bugs included. This is exactly why you need to invest in Outlast NBS 30 natural insect repellent additive to help protect your property from unwanted invaders. Comprised of a blend of botanical ingredients, Outlast NBS 30 repels insects naturally. Just add 3.2 ounces to any oil or latex exterior paint/stain or coating. When added to a coating the botanicals act in a time-release manner to repel insects from the surface of your wood for many seasons to come. Don’t forget to add NBS 30 (NO BUG STUFF) every time you paint or stain outdoors. Don’t let bugs walk around on your house or burrow tunnels to nest in.

Log cabins create the perfect environment for bugs and insects to nest. Patented and natural NBS 30 insect repellent additive for finishing treatments helps make wood less attractive to insects. Discourage pests from even going near your wood! Prevention is the key. Try NBS 30 for carpenter bee prevention!

As a natural insect repellent product NBS 30 additive is designed as an alternative to poisons and is suitable for use on your wooden structures where people and pets are in close proximity.

Please Note:  The effective life of this additive varies depending upon a variety of conditions including the type of coating used, surface prep procedures, and climatic conditions.  Many users report continued results several seasons after application.  Two or more coats may be necessary for carpenter bee control. In the event of an active carpenter bee infestation, ALWAYS ream-out the tunnels, powder with poison and caulk thoroughly prior to coating. 

Ants, cockroaches, beetles, mites, spiders, fleas, ticks, silverfish, dirt daubers, bees and wasps will not crawl on, nest on or burrow through coatings treated with NBS 30 Additive.
