Pure Pharmaceutical Grade Boric Acid Powder 100gm
Boric acid is considered one of the most effective and natural way to get rid of those pesky pests in your home. It is used to kill cockroaches, ants, fleas, termites, silverfish, beetles, wood borers, and other parasites.
When ingested, boric acid works as a stomach poison and dries out the insect’s body. It also breaks down the wax on the insect’s outer shell and is absorbed into the body. Unlike with other poisons though, insects don’t develop immunity to boric acid. What’s more, it isn’t a repellent, so they won’t avoid the places where you’ve applied it, but keep coming back and getting poisoned.
Mix equal parts boric acid and flour and dust all over your home, especially in the cracks and corners of your house where they hide. You’ll have to keep the window open while doing this though, to minimise the chance of inhaling the substance. Don’t forget to vacuum after.
The insecticidal powers of boric acid can also be extended to furniture. A mixture of boric acid and water can be sprayed or painted onto wood to protect it against harmful insects like termites or beetles, wood rot, and fungi. Another option is to drill a hole in the wood and insert into it a pellet or water-soluble capsule with boric acid.
Boric acid is a natural antiseptic, anti-fungal agent, and astringent. A teaspoon of boric acid in four ounces of distilled water makes a good wash for wounds, rashes, minor burns, or as an acne treatment. It also relieves the itch from insect bites. A teaspoon in four cups of water can be used to treat sore eyes, irritation, or weird eye discharges.
Because of its anti-fungal properties, it is also used to treat external fungal infections. Sprinkle a small amount in your shoes to treat athlete’s foot. Boric acid dissolved in water is also an effective cure against ear infections caused by fungi from swimming pools. The infection is sure to disappear in two to three days.
