The purpose of this website is to provide information about the Roach E. Reaper method for using Boric Acid to kill cockroaches. A moderate amount of reading is needed, but we believe that the reading will prove to be worthwhile. It has been recognized for many years that consuming Boric Acid, a pure white powder, is lethal for insects. For traditional use, pure Boric Acid is provided as 100 grams or more of dry powder in a squeeze bottle. The traditional way to get cockroaches to ingest pure Boric Acid is embodied in the following directions for use:
To control cockroaches, certain types of ants (excluding carpenter ants, fire ants, harvester ants, and pharaoh ants) silverfish, and water bugs. SHAKE WELL, TWIST CAP UNTIL FULLY OPEN. HOLDING BOTTLE AT 45 O ANGLE, POWDER SHOULD FLOW FREELY WHEN SQUEEZED. For faster application, remove top, use spoon to distribute powder in hard to reach places. Apply liberally, scattering under and behind refrigerator, stove, sink, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, tubs into openings and around drains, water pipes and electrical conduits, and in cracks and crevices along baseboards and corners of cabinets, cupboards and closets. Remove all lower drawers in kitchen and bathroom cabinets, cupboards, bedroom dresser and closets then scatter lightly liberally in drawer walls. Reapply as necessary. Any powder visible after application must be brushed into cracks and crevices or removed. Do not contaminate food and foodstuffs. Not for use in drains. This product may be used in homes, markets, schools, warehouses, factories, hospitals, hotels, garages, apartment buildings, and military bases.
The objective in doing this is to get the cockroaches to crawl through a very thin layer of Boric Acid powder. IF the cockroaches do that, then the dry powder adheres to the body of the cockroach, and, in cleaning the Boric Acid from their bodies, the cockroaches ingest enough of it to die.
Die, Bugs, Die! provides a simple way to use a small amount of pure Boric Acid to kill cockroaches. To set up a kill site, you simply scoop a pea-sized pile of pure Boric Acid (as a white powder) from a small plastic container onto the top side of a special infused wooden square. Each square measures approximately 1.25 in x 1.25 in x 0.15 in thick. Then leave the square where cockroaches search for food. BUT a kill site must always be out of reach of children or pets. Boric Acid can be hazardous especially to children or pets. Good places for kill sites can be under, behind, or beside kitchen appliances; under enclosed sinks in the kitchen, bathrooms, and garage; under low-sitting. furniture; etc.
CAUTION! Boric Acid is harmful to human health and to the environment. Handle the Boric Acid, and the squares of wood, with care. ESPECIALLY, keep away from children and pets. Wear gloves or wash your hands after handling the Boric Acid or the squares.
* The "Roach E. Reaper" method is effective at killing cockroaches with Boric Acid, but it is NOT effective against flying insects, fleas, ticks, scorpions, or pests like spiders. Using another method, such as insect traps, along with the Roach E. Reaper method, can increase over-all control of the cockroaches.
