The term wood preservatives defines that the wood preservation is the process of preserving wood from the wood destroying agents like insects or fungus so that the life span of the wood can be extended.
It refers to the treatment of wood with chemicals to impart resistance to degradation and deterioration by living organisms. The proper application of chemical preservatives can protect wood from decay, and stain fungi, insects and marine borers, thus prolonging the service life of wood for many years.
The wood contents celluloses, hemicelluloses, starches and other susceptible materials that attract the fungi and insects to be degraded and eaten. After the preservative treatments, the fungi and insects cannot decompose and feed on these substances, hence the durability of wood is to be increased.
Everybody is well aware that wood is prone to attacks by insects and enviromental factors such as moist,midew,decay etc.This is a fact and no need to discuss more about it.
Everybody is also well aware that use of finest quality wood preservative increases the life and structural strength of wood greatly.
One thing must be remembered that wood preservative must contain sporicide, fungicide,termicide and miticide. Must be enviromental freindly and safe to human and cattles and birds. Also one has to offer many formulations according to specific species of wood/timber.

This is a tough read, I think a little editing could help get the point across much more clearly.
