Boric acid is a white powder that has been used to treat pest infestations for many decades. It has demonstrated the ability to kill cockroaches and also ants and termites.
Boric acid is not as effective as specialized, professionally administered extermination methods. It can be useful when combined with other proven techniques and chemicals. Boric acid is the active ingredient for several termite treatments. These products are applied to wood or surfaces of wood. If termites crawl in it or consume it, they will be controlled.
Challenges of Control
Contact your pest control professional to arrange for an inspection and consultation, at which time your exterminator can discuss customized, comprehensive treatment methods which make use of both chemical and natural pesticides.
