Hello everybody; Both my wife and I have hashimoto (an autoinmune thyroid disease) and are strict paleo for more than a year, with big improvement of health.

We are now renovating ourselves a country house in the north of spain, it??s the house where we are living. We are having trouble deciding if we should treat our fir tree roof beams with xylophagus poison, due to its chemical composition. Chemicals can affect spacially people with autoimune diseases. We live in a quite dry area and there??s no soil nearby the beams to termites will not be an issue. The main problem around here is Hylotrupes bajulus (Old-house borer), but it??s not like a plague or something. In fact, the roof beams were placed without any treatment 30 years ago, by previous owner who never finished the house, and they haven??t been attacked. I have heard that chemical xylophagus poisons are dangerous and in some countries are banned, but I don??t know if it??s true. Plus, it will be us the ones to put it. Could you please give us advice? Composition of the product: -Cypermethrin 40:60 0,16% -Propiconazole: 0,12% (aka DMI or demethylation inhibiting fungicide) -Tebuconazole: 0,10% -excipients Contains 1,2-Benzisothiazol-3(2H)-one
