Boric Acid H3BO3
Granular or Powder Form
by Duda Energy
Industrial Grade – Minimum 99.9% Purity
Granular boric acid is more dense, much like salt crystals. Powder boric acid is very fine, can be dusty to work with but is essential for use in dry pest control applications.
There are many uses of boric acid. Here are some examples:
pest control (dehydrates and kills bugs)
pH adjustment (pools)
a way to fireproof fabrics
use to add life to tools
preservative for many materials
antifungus (yeast infections)
Cockroaches / Dry Application
Cockroaches clean themselves every few seconds. Boric acid powder can be lightly placed on surfaces where cockroaches are found. They will run over the boric acid powder, clean their feet, and then die from consuming the boric acid on their feet. Do not apply too much as bugs can detect the boric acid and may avoid it. Granular boric acid does not work well for this application. It must be powder. Baits can also be made (see ants)
Ants / Bait Method
An ant problem is no problem for boric acid. Mix the granular or powder boric acid with sugar, roughly at a 5% or less boric acid concentration. Too much boric acid can repel the insects. In the case of ants specifically, higher concentrations may be used. Next, add small amounts of water to make it into the texture of a paste. Apply the paste around areas of where ants / pests are found. They will eat the bait and then die. Ants will carry the bait back to the colony and the entire colony will die. In most instances, ant colonies can be wiped out in a matter of hours.
