CB Borid Boric Acid Dust
Proven Control of Crawling Insects in Commercial and Residential Locations
CB Borid Boric Acid Dust is a natural product that uses a contact kill and knock-down method like all other dusts. CB Borid Boric Acid Dust provides long-term treatment and remains effective as long as it remains dry and accessible to insects. Depending on the pest, CB Boric Borid Acid Dust will either kill the pest the minute they touch or it will allow the pest to carry the dust back to its colony, exposing the colony to the dust. CB Borid Boric Acid can be used either indoors or outdoors; simply apply small amounts using a tool or application tip. No dust should be visible, so make sure to brush the remaining dust into the cracks or crevices. When using CB Borid Boric Acid Dust, remember to be careful around children or pets.
Useful Tips You May Need to Know
The dust application is simple. However, when using dust, please be cautious, especially when children and pets are present. Use dust only in areas where they cannot reach. Apply lightly and uniformly to infested area. Do NOT overuse dust. The large amount of dust would repel insects. We recommend applying CB Borid Boric Acid Dust with a Bellow duster or a Centrobulb duster for best application.
