Where do I find Boric Acid in Sydney, Australia?

Asked by: 1975 views , , , ,

There are numerous websites saying that Boric Acid is the best substance for long term control of cockroaches. I’ve been to Mitre10 and Bunnings, and they both say they don’t have it.

I have Borax at home, but several websites I’ve read say that Borax is not as effective as Boric Acid because the cockroaches don’t like to go near Borax. Can anyone tell me where I can find Boric Acid in Sydney, Australia?
Sorry, I’ve tried Coles and Woolworths supermarkets, no luck there.

    Here is some info on Boric Acid and how it kills cockroaches



    Mitre 10 on Oxford St, Paddington has a product called Roach Prufe that contains boric acid. If that isnt in your area I would see if Bunnings can order it in for you (they often order stuff in for me), failing that you can buy it online at http://www.rosemill.com/default.asp?pageid=27383

    Mix your borax with something that does attract the roaches. I always mix it with Sugar to attract ants when we have a swarm appear in the house. They fill their boots with it and take it back to the nest, I presume the roaches will do the same.

    I’d have to question what websites are you looking at… for effectiveness yes it kills roaches but think about it..you are placing a loose unsightly powder along the base board or at the bottom of the shelving so that (in hopes that) the roaches crawl through it, more effective product are the gel baits where you can place the product out of sight where the roaches actually live. If your concern of the toxicity of other insecticides, boric acid powder will be many times more toxic than any other insecticide you would put out or have placed out professionally.
