Is this good for roaches ?
A shopper on May 3, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, this is used to treat wood, it is injected into wood and the borate will then absorb into the wood making it indigestible to wood destroying insects, such as termites.

If you want something for roaches then I would recommend taking a look at our roach control section, we have products and guides.

Can I use this product along baseboards where the board meets tile flooring. There are gaps between the flooring at tile grout lines every 6 to 12 inches.
Vic on Mar 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You can use the Jecta to inject into the unfinished wood. This is a wood preservative and is meant to be installed into the wood.
The picture shown on the Amazon website shows three tubes of Jecta. They appear to have their own plunger. On your own website it shows just one tube and it appears to be a tube that would go into a caulking gun. If I order from Amazon, what will I get?

BEST ANSWER: I have never seen jecta with it's on plunger this is meant to be used with a caulk gun and and it is for one tube.

Excellent product
Easy to use. All you need is a caulking gun. Perfect to inject under painted surfaces where topical sprays won't penetrate. I highly recommend this product.
