After all the research I've done in the last couple of months your product seems to be the holy grail to log homes.
I USED OUTLAST Q OIL PREVIOUSLY ABOUT 8 YEARS AGO ON MY HUNTING CABIN IN REMOTE PENNSYLVANIA (HARSH WINTERS AND DRY SUMMERS), WHAT A GREAT PRODUCT! WORKED AS ADVERTISED, NEVER USED A PRODUCT THAT APPLIED SO EASILY AND QUICKLY(I USED A PUMP SPRAYER). GREAT REPELLENCY AND LASTS A LONG TIME, I WILL USE THIS PRODUCT AGAIN, ALMOST TIME TO RE-APPLY AND I AM ACTUALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT, SO EASY!.....
"From obtaining product samples and valuable application information, to speaking with [Outlast] R&D scientists, you and your company have exceeded every expectation my wife and I have for a wood stain provider."

Good morning Barbara just thought I'd send you a picture of my deck completed if you can't see the whole thing let me know. It came out beautiful the water beads up on it so nicely. I and I'm sure it won't have to be done for quite a long time! Hope you have a great week the weather is beautiful here! Cheryl
Hi Barbara just wanted to send you a picture of my log home that was done in Q8 log oil in 2007. We live in Rehoboth Massachusetts. My husband Normand spoke with you many years ago when he ordered the product. We have been very pleased with the results. We have recently been contemplating what stain to use on our very weathered deck. I will send to you a picture of the before and after because we were told that we should use the same oil on our deck since it has work so well on our home. That will be our project this weekend. Have a great weekend Barbara will be in touch. Cheryl Tremblay

I am pleased to endorse your product. As an Entomologist, I had tried
many methods of ridding my log home of carpenter bees and
carpenter ants. Every year I sprayed a variety of insecticides which
usually controlled the ants, but not the bees since they were in
overwhelming numbers and favored the 20+ feet heights of the house
where they were difficult to spray. The bees had damaged my eave
overhangs of the house so badly; I had to cover the wood with vinyl.
I mixed your NBS30 additive with Sickkens stain four years ago after I
stripped the old stain from the logs. In those four years, I have found
only a single carpenter bee entrance hole and that was behind a drain
pipe that was not properly coated with the stain NBS30 mix. The
carpenter bees came back every year, but were repelled by the mix.
This 4th year I am noticing more carpenter ants than usual and have
seen the start of a few carpenter bee entrance holes. I have
purchased more NBS30 and plan to mix it with a clear maintenance
coat of Sikkens for application to the logs.
Thank you for such a great product!
