:) According to the label,
:) it doesn't appear that boric acid is the main pesticide, unless they
:) consider it to be part of the filler/bait and hid it in the inert
:) ingredients list.
Hmm My google search may of brought up an old label. I would think what
you found is the newer one. N-ethyl Perfluorooctanesulfonamide
(Sulfuramid) is used professionally, like boric acid is a slow stomach
poison, but without the BA build up. It is very slow acting though, but
if they are feeding on it they will die out. Depending on the nest
population it can be over two weeks worth of foraging.
:) Also, where does one get a key to open a protecta LP rodent bait station?
:) Our former pest control company left them behind, I'd like to refill them
:) with tomcat bait blocks, instead of having to buy new bait stations. Any
:) thoughts on if delta dust is safe enough for armatures to use? I plan on
:) just using a duster to pump it through the crawl space vents.
Try the email again without the "bugs". Send an address and I'm sure I
can come up with a key for you. You can use a screwdriver if need be,
pry towards the center of the station while lifting up. There are two
tabs that will need prying on each side.
