Common household Borax is one of the most potent bug killers out there. Bugs cannot develop a resistance to it and when they crawl through or over the powder, they get coated with it, ingest it and DIE! You might sprinkle the stuff generously on the floor and get it heavy around the edges. We annually sprinkle a 12” band around all the buildings and the bug infestations are minimal now. You can mix it up and spray it too.
Our farm stores carry a very effective product called Bug Stop. By Spectracide, it is a long term residue spray that wipes out any bug crawling on it. While the Borax works, it takes time. You will see results same day for Bug Stop. It says it lasts up to 9 mos indoors. It is a clear spray that you get in gallon jug with sprayer so you can spray down low. I have to wear a carbon mask because I seem to react to it otherwise. Once it’s dry, no bother. It’s odorless otherwise.
