Outlast Q8 Log Oil is used in the maintenance and preservation efforts at our first US President George Washington's estate of Mt. Vernon! CTA is proud to be a supplier to the Mt. Vernon Historic Trust.  Look for the new "red" colored shingle treatments as they are installed throughout 2012 and 2013.



Try soaking a few tennis balls in NBS 30 and throw them in the attic. Customers tell us "no more squirrels"!

HELP! Carpenter Bees are driving me crazy!

It seems that this is an extraordinary year for Carpenter Bees or homeowners are extraordinarily sick of them. In either case, we are posting information that comes from the Ohio State Agricultural Extension Service report on Carpenter Bees.

Misinformation –
Use WD 40, wasp/hornet killer spray, sprays a liquid in the entry hole and plug with steel wool.  PLEASE DON’T.

Best Results-
REAM out the chamber/tunnel with a wire. This breaks up the waxy pockets that house the larvae and serve as "condos” for the adults during the dormant periods.
DUST the entry hole with a powdered type insect killer such as Drione or Sevin Dust. The dusts are superior for killing carpenter bees because the dust gets on their bodies and they carry it into the back of the chamber to kill the entire nest. It is almost impossible to get a liquid all the way to the back of the tunnel.
LEAVE the hole OPEN for a few days at minimum.
CAULK the hole.
ADD NBS30 to your paint or stain and proceed.

Outlast Q8 Log Oil is available in all 50 states

A customer in Georgia sent us these beautiful before and after pictures of his deck project using our Q8 Log Oil in Light Gold 02.  Notice that there are no screw holes or marks because he used hidden "Tiger Claw" fasteners to secure the boards - what a great idea!
