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.

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 used for termite control under houses?

It has the same active ingredients as- borathor max pt - and this is used for termite control.


Nibor-D cannot and should not be used for any form of termite control. While it may be the same ingredient name it is not the same fomulation. Depending on the type of termites you are trying to do prevention of would depend on the proper product for your needs. Timbor or Boracare that are also made by Nisus would be your best options for a raw wood treatment product. If you are looking to treat soil you would need to use something like Termidor SC which will last 10 years in the soil. You can review all of our termite treatment and prevention information as well as how to videos and guides to help you make the best decision on what product you should use for your home.
