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.
Niban Fine Granular Bait is a natural bait due to the active ingredient 5% Orthoboric Acid, however it is not classified as organic by OMRI or similar classifications.
