    Cave Crickets

    By Al on 11/28/2011

    I used the Niban to try to control Cave crickets. I really don't know what affect it had because of an earlier infestation. After applying it they continued to appear. I probably was too late to have it work effectively. I will apply it next year before they appear. Hopefully with some other stuff I'll get rid of these UGLY crickets once and forever.

    Our Pharaoh Ants seem to be enjoying our kitchen more...

    By Kurt on 01/30/2017

    We were optimistic and counting on NiBan-FG to take care of these tiny little ants. But not a single ant will go near the bait. They all go around it, even after I put it in their way. Now they have increased and had branched off to my home office in another part of the house. They seem to love my Mac keyboard. So far, they appear to be coming and going to the attic. We appreciate any advice you can share. Thanks!

    Thank you for your comments! We are sorry that you are not having success with the NiBan Granular Bait. The ants are probably looking for carbohydrates/sweets and/or moisture if they are not attracted to the Niban, so a gel or liquid bait would be recommended. You can test to find out if the ants are attracted to sweets by putting out a bit of honey, jelly, or syrup near the ant trails to see if they are attracted to it. If so, then we would recommend a sweet bait. Maxforce Quantum is an excellent sweet bait for most types of ants, even ones with very large colonies: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/maxforce-quantum-ant-bait-p-1884.html You may also want to use a perimeter and spot spray where ants may be entering the structure, such as Temprid SC or Temprid Ready Spray: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/temprid-sc-insecticide-p-1175.html http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/temprid-ready-spray-p-2657.html We can also assist you over the phone at 866-581-7378 M-F 9a-5p EST.

    NiBan Fine Granular Bait

    By Angela on 08/25/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I ordered this product to rid my kitchen of roaches based on the somewhat successful use of a 100% (but not waterproof) boric acid product, because this one also contains boric acid. There doesn't seem to be a high enough percentage of boric acid in this product to be really effective though, and it didn't reduce the insect traffic at all. The other product I used was very effective but because we were laying it down in the kitchen area and some places outside, it was only useful as long as it remained dry, which meant many and consistent applications. We were hoping to find something as effective but without the high maintenance issue.

    Lawn Ants

    By Mike on 09/29/2017

    I applied this product a couple of times. Ants did not appear to be eating it and we still have ant mounds in our yard. The ants covered it with dirt and kept on going.

    Thank you for your review. We apologize you did not get the expected results. We would like to take the time out to help troubleshoot with you. Depending on if the ants are foraging or not will help to determine why they are just burying the bait. In order to find out if they are foraging you can do what we call the potato chip test. Where you put out a potato chip, if they take the potato chip back to the nest they are foraging. If they don't take it back they are not foraging and it will be easier to kill with a liquid insecticide like Taurus SC (http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/taurus-sc-termiticide-p-1816.html) by drenching the mound. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 866-581-7378 Monday- Friday from 9-5.
