I found out that boric acid is a wonderful way to get rid
of all the evil nasty roaches in your home. And it works
I bought several quart containers of powdered boric acid and poured a trail of the boric acid powder along the cabnets in my kitchen and bathrooms.
It takes several weeks for the boric acid to kill the roaches but it is 100% effective.
Recently I learned that boric acid is also effective at killing other insects such as ants, termites, fireants, palmetto bugs,ticks,bedbugs, fleas, boxelder bugs, carpet beetles, centipedes, crickets, earwigs, grasshoppers, millipedes, scorpions, slugs water bugs,and many many more creepy crawly insects.
Most of the stuff I googled on boric acid killing bugs says the boric acid kills the bugs by drying them out.
Last but not least boric acid is not toxic to people or pets.
