Product Review – Boric Acid In A Can

I love dusts for pest control. Great residuals, versatile and they are labeled for a long list of pests. DE (diamataceous earth, Delta Dust, Drione, and Borid are a few of my favorites in the powder form. You’ll notice Borax isn’t on that list, I’ll use that when they put bugs on the label along with your laundry-but I digress.

Another favorite tool of mine is also ‘Boric Acid In A Can.’ This formulation makes for a great weapon against insect and it can stick in so many places that ordinary loose powder can’t. Being an aerosol, you can treat up under stainless steel sinks, really tiny cracks and even the motor housing of refrigerators and the like without worries that the powder will become airborne once the motor fan starts running.

Of course nothing in life is perfect and besides this product being a little messy at times it does have one major drawback that simply drives me nuts. I pride my service on efficiency, exact doses and tools working the way they were designed. It makes me not want to buy another case of it at times and throwing away what I have. I wonder if you have that problem too and if you use the same technique I do to keep the product flowing. Watch the video and you’ll see what I mean.
