Boric acid for roachesThere have been recent studies that suggest cockroaches have been and are becoming resistant to various types of pesticides. While this is a major issue it doesn’t really affect our method of getting them under control: boric acid. Boric acid is a naturally occurring compound that is odorless and less toxic than table salt. Boric acid can act as both a stomach poison when ingested by insects and also as a desiccant, dehydrating them. When cockroaches walk through the powder it sticks to their bodies and can be ingested when they clean themselves. The powder on their body also scratches the waxy cuticle of their exoskeleton and causes them to dehydrate & die.

So the fact that this people and pet-friendly pest control product works mechanically on insects ensures that roaches can not become resistant to boric acid!
