Natural and organic baits (chemical-free) can be challenging to find when trying control ants, cockroaches, and other insects in your home. Here you will find baits that only use naturally occurring active ingredients (a form of boron) to control several types of insects.
An effective ant bait gel that can be used in a residential or commercial area.
Boron is used in pest control in the form of boric acid. It can be found in ingredients lists as boric acid, borax, sodium polyborate, sodium tetraborate, sodium octoborate, and others. Because it is widespread throughout the earth and has a very low human toxicity, boric acid is often suggested for use in low-toxic pest management. It is also less repellent than other ingredients, making it good for bait applications. It can be found in powder, paste, liquid, gel, aerosol, and other formulations.
Boric acid products work to control insects by acting as a poison. Boric acid is also an abrasive material that absorbs the waxy coating of an insect’s body, causing it to become dehydrated and die. Even though it is safer than many pest control ingredients, it is still harmful if ingested, so caution should be taken around food, children, or pets.
