    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'.

    Q
    How to kill camel crickets?
    They look like grasshoppers
    A
    We would recommend using a bait to control Camel Crickets. 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. NIBAN comes in a convenient 4 lb. shaker container with a comfort grip handle for easy application. NIBAN Granular Insect Bait should be applied near camel cricket activity or in a 2-4 foot band around your home.

    Q
    Is Niban Granular Bait safe for use in the house? Can I also use it for kitchen window?
    I have a baby which crawls and two cats.
    A
    Niban Granular Bait is safe for use in a home with children and pets when it is used according to the product label. Niban Granular Bait must be used in areas indoors that are accessible to insects but inaccessible to pets and children. Apply Niban Granular Bait to cracks and crevices around the perimeter of rooms, under and behind appliances, and other areas where insects may harbor but which are inaccessible to children and pets. Applying the bait around your kitchen window should be fine.

    Q
    Can you apply Niban while it is raining?
    A

     Niban's weatherized granules don't degrade from heat or sunlight and will last through four inches of rain, though it is recommended to apply in dry conditions, as this is when insects would be more likely to be out foraging.

    Q
    Will Niban Granular Bait kill crickets in a warehouse industrial setting?
    We are in a cricket mating season in Abilene, TX. Our building is old and without a lot of proper sealing from the bottom. I need to control the crickets in my warehouse; they are getting into my parts boxes and all over my warehouse. The expected time for them is expected to last a month. I realize that I will be unable to control them completely with the conditions that I am in, but I need something to bring their population down to a manageable level.

    Q
    Is there a product to use for roaches outside my home?
    I just noticed a investation of these calif mystery roachs out side and need to know what to buy to exterminate them before they start coming in the house. It has to be animal friendly since I have a dog and cat
    A

    If you are finding a lot of roach activity outdoors around your home, then an excellent product is Niban Granular Bait. This is a bait that is ready to apply from the container, and it has food attractants that are great for roaches, but an active ingredient that is all natural. Niban should be applied dry, but it can hold up to about 4 inches of rainfall after it has been applied. You may also want to take a few moments to review our Roach Prevention Guide for tips on how to keep these pests out of your home.

    Q
    Does Niban Granular Bait kill spiders?
    We have an issue with wolf spiders and house centipedes. Will this product work on those?
    A

    There really is not a bait (including Niban Granular Bait) that is labeled for spiders or centipedes.  To control these pests, we would recommend a product like Demon WP.  Indoors you can apply to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, and any other place where the insects can gain entry. Outdoors you should apply the product to door frames, window frames, places where utilities enter into the structure, around the bottom of the foundation and out onto the ground directly around the foundation.

    Q
    Does Niban Granular Bait have any effect on the millipedes and centipedes?
    Does it have any effect on the millipedes and centipedes?
    A

    Niban Granular Bait is not specifically labeled for millipedes and/or centipedes. We would recommend using Talstar PL granules in your lawn. They will kill and prevent millipedes, centipedes and various other insects. Be sure to water the product in after application. This will last 2-3 months in the soil.

    Q
    What are the contents of the other 95% in Niban granules?
    Proven safe for humans?
    A

    The Inert Ingredients listed are added to help improve the formulation in effectiveness, storage and lifespan of pesticides. Unfortunately, the compound list of specific ingredients that make up the Inert Ingredient list is not broken down and made available for us. Niban Granules are safe to apply for pest control when the prodcut is applied, per label instructions. The product label should be on the front side of the container, it is a peel back label. You may read the product label here and contact Nisus directly 407-375-6313 for more detailed information.

  • Asked by Bradley from Atlanta, Ga
    09/26/2016
    Q
    Can I mix Niban and Bifen together in a spreader to put around my home and in my lawn?
    A

    Bifen Granules need to be watered-in to activate them, while Niban Granular Bait - 4 lb. Shaker needs to be applied dry, so we would not recommend mixing these products since the water from the Bifen application would reduce the efficacy of the Niban. Also, Bifen can have some repellent tendencies, so it would be best to apply in separate areas.

  • Asked by Nr from Albany, Ny
    06/25/2017
    Q
    What would be the recommended setting using a Scotts Broadcast Spreader to apply Niban Granular Bait?
    A

    The Niban Granular Bait label calls for 6 ounces per 100 sq ft, / 4 lbs. per 1000 square feet.  If your spreader settings go from 1 to 10 (1 letting out the least and 10 letting out the most) you typically want to be around a 4 setting.  If your spreader goes from 1 to 20, you should probably be around a 7 or 8 setting.  The goal is to just run out of product when you are done walking the 1000 square feet.  One person may walk faster than someone else, so they may place It on a higher setting than someone that walks slower. 

    Almost all fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides, etc have treatments in amounts of so much product per 1000 square feet.  So if you can figure out what your walking speed is then you know anytime you apply any product that calls for so much of it per 1000 square feet, you always set your spreader on this setting.  You can calibrate this by marking off a 1000 square foot (10 x 100) area and placing 4 lbs of the Niban Granular Bait in the spreader.  Start with a low setting and start walking your marked off area at a normal pace.  You can adjust as you go and find the basic setting for you to apply the product over a 1000 square feet.

    09/14/2018
    Q
    How often does Niban Granular Bait need to be reapplied?
    A

    The application timing for Niban will depend on the pest(s) you are trying to eliminate and the area that you are treating. 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'.
