"I agree w/ Donald about adding in the M-1 or some other mildewcide to areas more prone to mildew growth. The EPA will only allow manufacturers to add so much. If they add in more, they'll be required to register the product as a mildewcide. And…"

"HI Scott - Yes, the Q8 log oil is on my railing/pickets.  My railings are treated pine.  In the Southern parts of the US, CTA, the maker of Q8 Log Oil, suggests using their M1- Advanced Mildewcide.  It's an easy add-in to Q8 and…"

Like a lot of y'all we will be moving out to the sticks in a few months. There appear to be only two options for use where we will be living: 1. Hughesnet Gen 4 (or the equivalent of some other company), and 2. Verizon's product called Home Fusion. Does anyone have any experience with either?

Hey Hank, As a Woodguard user for a long time, I intend to use the Q8 on my next project. It's less harmful to the air and the clean up and penetration is better.  Jim and Pam Katahdin Cedar Log Homes
