Anyone ever use Boric Acid to help with Pest Control?

recently i put out some boric acid behnd the stove and under cabinets to help with pest control before i called in a local company to spray the house.

Problem is I have to clean out the cabinets BEFORE they show and you are not to inhale the boric acid OR get it on your skin.

Think I can vacuum it out from under the sink and cabinets being my vacuum has a bag and not a canister filter?

Idont want to breath this stuff in either way. Thanx

  • it's really not that big of a deal, in powder form. i have used it and it works great. it's a drying agent and is found in many bug killing products. those warnings are really just ways of the company protecting itself, it's not nearly as corrosive as other things in your household you use everyday. Like cocacola.
