Product Overview

NIBAN Granular Insect Bait is a moisture-resistant bait that can be used indoors and outdoors to control ants, silverfish, roaches, crickets and more. Niban's weatherized granules don't degrade from heat or sunlight and will last through four inches of rain. Niban is the one bait that will continue to work because Niban has no known resistance and is virtually odorless. Niban kills the microoganisms in the insect's stomach and blocks enzyme production causing starvation. And since it affects none of the insect's major systems, they can't develop resistance.

Details

DESCRIPTION: NIBAN is a weather / moisture resistant Boric Acid based interior / exterior bait labeled for Ants (argentine, carpenter, thief, little black ants, pavement, odorous house, and pharoah), Cockroaches, Crickets, Silverfish, Snails and Slugs. 4 lb. shaker.

USE: Niban comes in a tip and pour bottle for easy application. We recommend applying the granules with a hand spreader for applications in large areas. Can be applied indoors and outdoors. For outdoors: apply where ants forage or in a 2-4 foot band around your home. Can be applied on lawns and in gardens. Indoors: Spread in attics, cellars, crawl spaces, cracks and crevices.

Niban's weatherized granules don't degrade from heat or sunlight and will last through four inches of rain. Niban is the one bait that will continue to work because Niban has no known resistance and is virutally odorless.

Niban kills the micro organisms in the insect's stomach and blocks enzyme production causing starvation. And since it affects none of the insect's major systems, they can't develop resistance.

Be careful of children and pets. 1 cup treats approx. 100 sq.ft. DO NOT apply residual insecticides or sprays near baits as that will deter pests from taking the bait. Always read the label!

Storm and Water Damage Steps

STEP 1: Broadcast Niban: In and around debris fields, inside and outside of damaged homes, around sewers and other drainage areas.

STEP 2: Reapply as necessary.

    Great product, Great Seller, Great Shipping!

    I love this stuff! I've had a problem with cave crickets for the past two years now. I had an exterminator out last year and that was expensive! He bombed the house, which was an awful chemical mess. I had to clean and wash everything that I didn't remove from the house, since it could have killed my dog. He had to come back 29 days later because, as he said, "something hatched," and the warranty was only good for 30 days following the initial treatment. He then sprinkled some kind of granular stuff around the house. That seemed like something I could do myself, if yet something else hatched. But when I asked him if I could buy the stuff he was using, he told me it wasn't available to the general public. What a liar! This year, when the crickets returned, I found it on Amazon in, like, two seconds, which was how I hooked up with DoMyOwnPestControl.com. It is the exact same stuff the exterminator used. It worked very quickly, is relatively safe to use around my dog, and I haven't seen another cricket since. I bought the 4lb shaker, used it around the exterior perimeter and inside, in the hard to reach places where insects can usually get in, near plumbing/electrical/gas lines. In the end, the Niban with the free shipping was less than 1/4 the price of the exterminator's bill. I'll just keep using this from now on. Had the exterminator just told me what he was using, I would have had this on hand this year when the crickets came back, been able to deal with the problem immediately, and not a week after the first insect appeared, and would not feel distrust toward the entire industry of exterminators. I probably would have bought the stuff from him and continued to do so for years to come. Instead, I'll just stick with this web site. The shipping took a few days, but in the end, it was a lot less stressful and very easy to use. Next, I'm going to tackle the mosquitoes that have been ruining summer in my yard for the past few years.

    I had a camel-back cricket problem before I found this stuff. Works great. Used 5 pounds three years ago and haven't needed it since now.

    Works perfectly for cave cricket infestations

    By James on 07/16/2012

    Verified Purchase

    Before winning my war against the cave crickets/ants by using Niban, I installed a closed window between a formerly open gateway between the basement of my house and crawlspace that is below an enclosed concrete porch. Through that window, I looked into the crawl space and counted over 50 live cave crickets alive and preparing for battle. The basement is a typical 'yankee basement' which consistent of little lighting, raised dirt floor areas (covering half the area) and an average humidity of 80%. The crawlspace is total darkness as there is only one window which used to be open area between the basement and crawlspace. Prior to Niban, I would vacuum kill about two dozen of the enemy during skirmishes in the basement every couple days, finding and killing cave crickets ambushing my loved one on the first and second floors, using Terro to kill the hundreds of ants around the property trying to make their way in. Low on moral after months in the trenches, and eager any sort of victory against the cave crickets, I tried bug bombing the basement and crawl space. The enemy remained, strong as ever, planning their next sortee and passing their survival genes to the next of kin. I learned much online about the enemy on hand during the months at war, recommendations about Niban, and decided after bombing that either an exterminator or their products were needed. I bought then used 2lbs of Niban, sprinkling it around the basement dirt areas that could be reached, tossing ounces of it to 'dust' the far raised dirt areas in the basement and crawl space areas, then never again saw a single live cave cricket or ant indoors from the day after treatment to weeks and counting. From that day, I learned first hand that Niban was the weapon of choice and 'domyownpestcontrol.com' enabled my victory. I strongly recommend it, the cost is cheaper than an exterminator and its one of the same exact products they use. I read that Niban lasts for months how I used it indoors, so like an exterminator, once a quarter, I will redust the place to keep everything perfect.

    Something that finally works - Niban Granular Bait

    By Kathy on 10/24/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I HATE camel crickets and this product really works. I must admit I was doubtful but figured it was worth a try. In addition to the Niban, we also wrapped cardboard with duct tape and had about 4 that stuck to the tape. After that, we haven't seen any. It has worked like a charm. I was always afraid to go out in the basement and would poke my head in the door and look before I entered to see if I saw any of those awful creatures. Now, I don't even think about going out there. Thank you so much!

    Been using niban (and intice) for many years. still keeps the ants out. i spread 8 inch barrier every month -- rotating inner, middle, and outer. this method is more effective than when we hired a profession who supposedly did 24 inches every 3 months. my wife is happy so i am happy.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Is Niban harmfull to dogs and cats, if so what is the treatment if they injest some?
A
Niban Granular Bait is very safe to use around children and pets. The 95% other ingredients are just food products, which is the part of the bait that attracts the insects to where you apply the bait for them to eat.  The 5% boric acid is the only part of the bait that kills the insect.  It is only strong enough to kill a small insect.  When you broadcast Niban as directed, there is not enough of it in one place to attract a pet and should cause no problems.  Many pest control companies use Niban Bait as part of their natural pest control program because it is such a safe and easy to use product.

Q
How long does Niban last before I have to treat again?
A
This will depend on the pest you are trying to eliminate and the area that you are using the Niban in. In areas with high pest pressure you may need to reapply every 1-2 weeks or as soon as you notice that the bait has been consumed. If you are treating for slugs the Niban product label states that you should reapply every 4 weeks, for most other pests the label simply states 'reapply as needed'.
