  • Product Overview

    Boractin Insecticide Powder is a non-repellent, boric acid dust that is effective against a wide range of crawling insects such as roaches, ants, silverfish, and darkling beetles. This odorless, moisture-resistant, long-lasting powder remains active and effective until the product is removed, and it will not break down in heat or UV light.
  • Benefits & Use

    Boractin Insecticide Powder is one of the most versatile dusts on the market, with options to apply as a dust, liquid spray, foam, or mop solution. As with many dust formulations, this product is ideally suited for controlling target insects inside voids and cavities.
  • Target Pests

    Boractin Insecticide Powder effectively kills roaches, palmetto bugs, water bugs, ants (excluding carpenter ants), silverfish, firebrats, and darkling beetles. As a new construction treatment, Boractin may also be used as a preventative treatment for roaches and drywood termites.
