What is the difference between Niban Granular Bait and Niban-FG?
Both products consist of the same formulation but have one significant difference. Niban Granular Bait contains only coarse particles; excellent for outdoor broadcast and perimeter applications. Niban-FG is made up of very small particles which allows it to be used in any type of dusting equipment. Niban-FG is excellent for indoor crack and crevice treatments.
How can I apply Niban Granular Bait?
With a mechanical spreader, power duster, plunger type duster or by hand.
What type of equipment is needed to apply Niban-FG?
Any type of dust applicator will work. For crack and crevice treatments, a bellows duster works best. For broadcast applications in attics and crawl spaces, the use of a power duster cuts application time considerably.
Can I use Niban-FG outdoors?
Yes. Small ants and silverfish often invade homes from the exterior. They build up in considerable numbers in flower beds, refuse areas, and under chips adjacent to a structure. It is frequently more effective to treat the source of the problem rather than trying to eliminate them after they have entered. Apply in a two-foot band around the perimeter of the home.
How long will Niban remain effective outdoors?
Based on studies, Niban Granular Bait remained effective until it was exposed to between one and a half and two inches of rainfall.
Just wanted to say that I am ordering NIBAN granular bait for the second time. It is an effective product and does last through several rainstorms. Last year, we were infected with ants and we suspected an infected bag of mulch may have been the carrier. Diazinon granules were not working and so I called a professional exterminator. I noticed that he used Niban along with a liquid product that this website carries. Of course, when he left, I Googled 'Niban' and up popped this website and the product. It's been very good for us here in Yonkers. I am now ordering a "sample" for my neighbor. I also fling some Niban into my pachysandra because I noticed lots of carpenter ants. So far, the pachysandra has not died and we've had rain. Good product! Read the label and use garden gloves.
The bait was intended for camelback crickets in the crawl space under my house. I did not scatter the product all over, but I just used a small amount of it in a tray. I see tracks in the tray and I did see a few live crickets there. They are gone now, and the bait must have eliminated them. I don't see the dead crickets because they jump great distances and have gone to distant locations to die.
I had a professioanl exterminator treat for carpenter ants. This is the exact product he used, he showed it to me and had me smell it. The problem was he didn't use enough or place it in the right spot. I purchased this product at a fraction of the cost, applied it where needed and....no more ants! This website is a great resource and it is saved in my favorites.
Product was shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. I used it immediately in the basement to control a camel cricket problem (we were starting to see 1 per day in the basement). I haven't seen a camel cricket since! I also put some under the stove and refrigerator for good measure since it works on cockroaches too - they're not a problem for us but figured I wouldn't want to have to find out about them if they are!
Niban Fine Granular Bait is considered a pet safe product, as long as you follow the product label. This product should be applied only in cracks and crevices and in inaccessible areas where kids or pets cannot access it (ie; behind appliances, in wall voids, etc.). You of course would not want to keep the bottle of Niban open where a pet could consume a large quantity. Keep in mind that these products are only strong enough to kill small insects when applied properly and it is only recommended to use this product in small quantities. It does not take much to do the job.
What is the difference between Niban Granular Bait and Niban FG?
The 'FG' in Niban FG stands for 'fine granular.' This means that the granules in the Niban FG will be finer (smailler) than those in the Niban Granular Bait. The finer granules make it easier to apply Niban FG in small cracks and crevices.
We live in Hawaii, and we have a lot of geckos in and outside of our home. I want to kill the roaches that the geckos don't get, however, I don't want to harm them in anyway. We also have wild chickens and roosters. Will Niban take care of the palmettos?
Geckos are not attracted to the Niban granules and they are highly unlikely to dead insects that have succumbed to the bait. Niban granules should have no effect on geckos, chickens or roosters. American cockroaches, sometimes called palmetto bugs are listed on the Niban granule product label and the Niban granules seem to do a great job eliminating them.
