Is there a good non-toxic bait that can be placed inside
a home that will get rid of ants, roaches and spiders.
We live in north GA and seem to be getting a lot of these
Is there one bait for multiple pests, or do we have to
buy separate ones for ants and roaches, etc.
Boric Acid powder can be used in many areas for roaches and some ants.
It is not a bait, but rather it suffocates the critters who craw across it.
I know of no non-toxic substance that will do all you want.
I will suggest that these critters and the useful solutions vary greatly
from one area of the word or country to another. In the US you can contact
the local county extension office and they can often help for free. Other
countries have similar government organizations.
Fo ants I have had success luck with a mixure of 1/3 by volume boric
1/3 by volume confectioner's sugar and 1/3 by volume brewer's yeast.
I make up about a quart mayonnaise jar, lasts a couple of years.
Shake and stir thoroughly, place about 2 tablespoons in a plasic youghurt
container lid, leave under the kick space near cabinates.
I have on occasion used regular bulk jar baking yeast, too.
Just a matter of what was close at hand.
I am told this works on roaches, but AFIK, (knock wood, cross fingers),
I don't have any roaches so I don't have personal experience.
You really don't want to be swallowing a lot of boric acid powder.
I do *not* claim this is non toxic. But its sure less oic than Raid.
On the issue of "non toxic" lets all get real. If it isn't toxic, it
won't kill the target.
There is one non toxic one hundred percent effective insecticide for
ants, roaches and spiders. Its consists of 2 wooden blocks and a
hammer. Works as follows; Place first block on table, place roach on
first block, place second block on roach, hit second block with
hammer. Guaranteed to work.
