Uses For Boric Acid

 

When it comes to taking care of the problematic pests which may trespass uninvited in your home, it can be even more of a pain spending money on pest control whether it’s hiring an exterminator or buying up expensive chemicals which may or may not work to your liking. If you are someone who prefers to do thing DIY style but aren’t a fan of potentially toxic and unsafe chemicals, boric acid can be the answer for you. Boric acid powder can help to safely and affordably get rid of a number of common household pest issues not to mention that it does so without leaving an odor or putting people at risk.

 

The amazing thing about boric acid is that it’s not just an excellent product to help with pest control issues, it can also be used in other ways such as address mold and odor problems, weed and lawn care issues and other uses as well. Here we want to go over some of the helpful ways you can use versatile boric acid powder such as Borid.

 

Pest Control Baiting and Dusting

 

Boric acid powder fills in as trap for various common pests including termites, insects, cockroaches, ants and silverfish. It has the twofold advantage of being a stomach poison for these creepy crawlies and in addition drying out a significant number of them until the point that they die. In addition, boric acid doesn’t carry a scent, which implies it won't disturb you with nasty, chemical odors when used.

 

You can utilize boric acid as a treatment on the wood in your home to dispose of termites. You could simply blend it with propylene glycol so the wood can assimilate the blend effectively. At that point, once the termites eat that wood, it will slaughter them. For silverfish, you can put the powder into little bundles and scatter them on the floor where they are active. It's an amazingly effective item that will deal with almost any household insect you may have, and it does so safely and effectively. It's particularly helpful for ants, who will take the boric acid back to their nest where it will, in the end, wipe out the whole population. Other than that, it is likewise very successful in controlling infestations of cockroaches.



Odor Control

 

Musty stenches that can sometimes come from your appliances can be neutralized with the use of boric acid powder. For instance, if you notice a musty smell coming from your dishwasher, you can add a teaspoon of boric acid powder to the water in the machine. Leave the solution for about 30 minutes and then wash out the solution, and lo and behold the odor is gone. You can also add it to your laundry to eliminate smells, get rid of nasty stains and brighten the overall color of your clothing.

 

Mold and Dry Rot Prevention

Mold can be a very hazardous issue to deal with indoors. This is especially the case if you live in an area that tends to have a more moist climate. There are many chemicals that can help with getting rid of mold, but they can often be dangerous if not used correctly and have strong overpowering smells. Boric acid can also be used for getting rid of and preventing mold. Simply mix boric acid with some water and spray over a surface that commonly receives mold and let it dry. Once it has dried out, the boric acid works fantastically as an inhibitor to keep mold away.

 

Dry rot can also be lessened or eliminated by boric acid. If you mix boric acid and glycol and add it to the wood in your home, it will soak into the wood and then dry. This mixture stops dry rot from starting so you don’t have to worry about the wood-eating fungus that can form and cause serious damage to the wood in your home. There are few things that boric acid can’t handle. This boric acid and water solution can also prevent termites from building a colony in or near your home, because the boric acid in the wood will kill any who try to eat it.

 

Weed Control

 

Boric acid also works exceptionally well as a form of weed control. Due to its knack for causing things to dry out and dehydrate, boric acid can draw out the moisture from any plants you sprinkle it on so that they can no longer sustain themselves and will then wither away. You won’t have to worry about using potentially harmful chemicals that can harm you, desired plants or the environment. If you regularly sprinkle some boric acid powder on an area that tends to grow undesirable grass or weeds, it can also prevent them from being able to take hold and grow.

 

All in all, boric acid powder has a number of different uses that can be incredibly helpful to you, and most importantly it’s safe and natural and doesn't carry a scent. Other chemicals can have strong unpleasant smells or be potentially hazardous to your health. With a product as versatile as boric acid, you won’t have to worry about suffering those kinds of affects. It’s an easy solution for a number of different problems.

Works well
I mix this stuff up (20% boric acid, 60% maple syrup and a 20% water) in a small cup and place it on an ant trail. I heat up the mixture in the microwave before adding the boric acid to dissolve everything completely. It works very well against ants.
