View Full Version : Anyone familiar with BitterBoard fence?

Aug. 17, 2011, 02:20 PM
We are getting ready to fence, and I'm wondering if anyone is familiar with BitterBoard and knows of any pros/cons? Instead of painting the fence black, boards and posts are immersed in this stuff and it colors the wood black and also is supposed to prevent chewing/cribbing, prevent mold, and inhibit shrinking/warping, etc.


There is also a BitterBite spray that can an be applied to surfaces already installed.

I have now licked a BitterBoard. It is bitter. Not gaggingly so, but certainly not sweet. It occurred to me that I have not licked a regular black fence board to compare, so I may be doing that later today.

Surely somebody at COTH has some experience with this stuff. Anyone have thoughts pro/con?
