Does anyone know where to get Borax powder on the island? I found it at a shop south of town before to use for bugs around the house, but the store is gone now.
Any help appreciated

I'm looking for it (or Boric acid) as well. Would LOVE to know where to find it on the island. Thanks!

I just called SP, and they said they have BIC Boric Acid. Don't know what that means, hopefully it's just a/the brand name. Anyway, he said they have 3 in stock at $11.50, so hopefully one will still be there when I go to town this evening.

Boric Acid works.
I'm happier than a pig in s__t...a foot on the sand...and a Belikin in my hand!

Lisa, Linda Carter swears by Boric Acid..........should be able to get it at the drug store......works great on ants.

Thanks for the suggestions I'll check it out. I think I was calling it the wrong thing.

While checking out the efficiency of this pest control method, I found this website. I don't have pets, but those that do may want to know the info on the second response.

Just remember Borax and Boric Acid or not the same thing.
