As noted by another reviewer, this product has an absolutely horrible odor. A contractor treated the studs on one wall of my attached garage, and the odor was so strong that it filled both floors of my house for a week.
I had a fan running on max 24 hours a day in the garage, and kept the garage doors open during the day and it still took over a week for the smell to dissipate.
A month later, I can't smell it, so it does seem to eventually go away, but this product should only be used in a well ventilated area.
Assuming it is effective, it's a pretty cheap option to try and protect wood, but the odor is no joke.

Purchased pressure treated (PT) lumber and treated 14 4" x 4" post with the brown version of this product. This was recommended by our fencer. The product is quite thin (low viscosity), which means you could use a gallon pressure sprayer to do large areas. Added only a slightly darker brown color to the already brown PT wood we used so it isn't really noticeable. The post have been in the ground for 2 years now with no sign of mildew or fungus even with the dirt that has splatter up on the posts. I could smell the stuff the whole time I was putting it on with a brush so I rated the low odor factor only a 2. Being thin the stuff penetrated rather quickly.

No, I do not recommend this product.
This product has a strong chemical odor that does not go away. If you're fencing a pasture it's probably fine, but I would NOT use this product anywhere near a house. Do a quick google search and you'll turn up people going crazy trying to get the smell out of their basement years after application.
