Product Overview

NiBor-D Insecticide is a versatile product that has different methods of application and can be used against insect pests, mildew, and fungus. This will not contaminate bait and can be used in conjunction with Niban or Niban-FG. Use NiBor-D Insecticide as a dust or in a liquid solution (can also be used to mop). Because NiBor-D Insecticide is a borate powder it will not cause metal to corrode like boric acid does.

NiBor-D can be applied as a liquid broadcast spray for dust mites and flea larvae; a treatment for attic insulation; a general pest prevention for new construction; a application into refuse containers, sewers, floor drains, and manhole covers and cavities; a treatment in poultry production facilities; and as a mop solution for small flies.

NiBor-D Insecticide can be used responsibly as part of a Green Pest Management program.

    Nibor-D: It’s the best!

    By Thomas on 04/20/2023

    Verified Purchase

    I’m really impressed with this type of boric acid powder. It mixes well with water, and can be used as a mop solution and can also be sprayed when diluted with water as well. Make sure to read the label for each individual application. I mainly used it for puffing dust into wall voids, and in between and cranks/crevices. I did a lot of research with insecticidal dust and this product is the best because of its multiple use applications. I highly recommend this product!

    Septic tank usage

    By Scott on 09/12/2023

    In situations of septic tanks NEVER POUR down the drain any insecticide. You want to keep the bugs in your septic alive or you may need to empty the septic because you've killed the good bugs. If in fact you think you have an occasional invader issue as a result of your septic do not treat in it but around it. Around your home instead of around the septic. Just remember to be a good steward to the insects you do want around Pollinators,Septic eaters,etc.

So how does it kill?

When used as a spray for ant and Cockroach control, mixed with another product, say tempo SC ultra, how does it help kill the pest? Through ingestion or through picking it up on their bodies? Thank you!

Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate is one of a family of borate compounds (containing boron and oxygen), which are considered absolutely toxic to insects. Borate compounds like Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate utilize a stop-feed mode of action. Stop-feed means that the active ingredient DOT disrupts the enzyme and digestive systems of the insect, preventing future digestion and causing death by starvation. This can happen by contact or ingestions when the insect grooms themselves.

Will this kill carpenter ants only on contact or carry back to the colony for ultimate control? Thanks.
NiBor-D Insecticide will be taken back to the colony as a food source producing a domino killing effect.

Can we use Nibor-D in our mop water to help control roaches & centipedes?

I work in a kitchen.


Yes, NiBor-D Insecticide can be added to mop solutions and offers a residual insecticide. You will add 2.5 cups per gallon of water.  Per the product label, "It is to be used as a supplemental treatment in conjunction with other pest management practices and may be reapplied as necessary. Apply only to floors by mopping. Allow the mop solution to penetrate into cracks and crevices in the tile or flooring and into crevice areas under equipment to affect possible hidden food sources and harborage areas that may contain small fly larva, including fruit fly and drain fly species and other insect pests. Remove or brush any powder visible after application into cracks and crevices. Avoid introducing the material into the air or onto any exposed surfaces other than the floor area. Avoid contaminating food or food processing surfaces. Do not apply when foods are exposed or facility is in operation. Do not contaminate feed and foodstuffs."

Can Nibor-D be flushed down the toilet to control cockroaches in septic tank?

If you have cockroaches actually coming from the septic tank then the biggest concern you will have is finding the area in the tank, lid, or septic lines that has a crack in it that is allowing the roaches access. They would not go down your drains from inside your home to then start a colony or population within the septic tank or system. Since they would have gained access from the yard/lines, the problem may persist if the source is not found and closed up or fixed. 

Nibor D can be used down the toilet and drains, and you will likely want to put a little down all of them within the home so you get even dispersal of the product. Nisus advises to use about 5 scoops of the Nibor D in a gallon of water, and do about ½ gallon of solution per toilet to flush down, and about 1/3 gallon of solution per drain. You may need to reapply it after a few weeks, depending on the severity of the infestation.
