Look on the label of various products for the "active ingredients". That is where you will see if boric acid is the main ingredient. Di-sodium octaborate is another name for boric acid.

Boric acid requires that the roaches walk through it. Oftentimes they live in harborage that precludes boric acid powder application. I would urge you to consider any of the gel roach baits in hard to treat areas. They come in a syringe, not a bait station.

Why not just buy boric acid? Any pharmacy carries it....as well as HD.

I think the answer PAbugman gave 4 years ago was pretty good.

Nothing wrong with adding info to an old thread, as long as it's consistent with the thread and not off-topic.

I was agreeing with you. I, personally, don't see an issue with posting in old threads.

40 plus old threads were revived. Which we received a report on.

We don't worry about 1 or 2 old threads being revived.
