What is Niban Granular Bait and Niban-FG
They are granulated baits containing five percent boric acid as the active ingredient and a combination of both protein and carbohydrate attractants.
What insects will Niban Granular Bait and Niban-FG control?
They are labeled for the control of cockroaches, crickets, silverfish, and ants, including carpenter ants.
Does either bait have an odor?
There is no detectible pesticide odor. The only odor is that of the food based attractant.
Will Niban irritate skin?
What is the difference between Niban Granular Bait and Niban-FG?
Both products consist of the same formulation but have one significant difference. Niban Granular Bait contains only coarse particles; excellent for outdoor broadcast and perimeter applications. Niban-FG is made up of very small particles which allows it to be used in any type of dusting equipment. Niban-FG is excellent for indoor crack and crevice treatments.
How can I apply Niban Granular Bait?
With a mechanical spreader, power duster, plunger type duster or by hand.
What type of equipment is needed to apply Niban-FG?
Any type of dust applicator will work. For crack and crevice treatments, a bellows duster works best. For broadcast applications in attics and crawl spaces, the use of a power duster cuts application time considerably.
Can I use Niban-FG outdoors?
Yes. Small ants and silverfish often invade homes from the exterior. They build up in considerable numbers in flower beds, refuse areas, and under chips adjacent to a structure. It is frequently more effective to treat the source of the problem rather than trying to eliminate them after they have entered. Apply in a two-foot band around the perimeter of the home.
How long will Niban remain effective outdoors?
Based on studies, Niban Granular Bait remained effective until it was exposed to between one and a half and two inches of rainfall.

By Christine on 05/28/2006
Just wanted to say that I am ordering NIBAN granular bait for the second time. It is an effective product and does last through several rainstorms. Last year, we were infected with ants and we suspected an infected bag of mulch may have been the carrier. Diazinon granules were not working and so I called a professional exterminator. I noticed that he used Niban along with a liquid product that this website carries. Of course, when he left, I Googled 'Niban' and up popped this website and the product. It's been very good for us here in Yonkers. I am now ordering a "sample" for my neighbor. I also fling some Niban into my pachysandra because I noticed lots of carpenter ants. So far, the pachysandra has not died and we've had rain. Good product! Read the label and use garden gloves.

Control of Camelback Crickets
By Alan in Arlington, VA on 10/25/2010
The bait was intended for camelback crickets in the crawl space under my house. I did not scatter the product all over, but I just used a small amount of it in a tray. I see tracks in the tray and I did see a few live crickets there. They are gone now, and the bait must have eliminated them. I don't see the dead crickets because they jump great distances and have gone to distant locations to die.

This stuff did the trick. Haven't had a camel cricket in my house for a month. Used the granular bait around the outside of the house and this dust in the crawl space!

Same product I paid a professional to apply.
By Valerie in Toms River, NJ on 10/18/2010
I had a professioanl exterminator treat for carpenter ants. This is the exact product he used, he showed it to me and had me smell it. The problem was he didn't use enough or place it in the right spot. I purchased this product at a fraction of the cost, applied it where needed and....no more ants! This website is a great resource and it is saved in my favorites.

Haven't seen a camel cricket since!
By Anne in DC on 12/19/2010
Product was shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. I used it immediately in the basement to control a camel cricket problem (we were starting to see 1 per day in the basement). I haven't seen a camel cricket since! I also put some under the stove and refrigerator for good measure since it works on cockroaches too - they're not a problem for us but figured I wouldn't want to have to find out about them if they are!
By Mike in Haskell, NJ on 09/29/2017
I applied this product a couple of times. Ants did not appear to be eating it and we still have ant mounds in our yard. The ants covered it with dirt and kept on going.
Thank you for your review. We apologize you did not get the expected results. We would like to take the time out to help troubleshoot with you. Depending on if the ants are foraging or not will help to determine why they are just burying the bait. In order to find out if they are foraging you can do what we call the potato chip test. Where you put out a potato chip, if they take the potato chip back to the nest they are foraging. If they don't take it back they are not foraging and it will be easier to kill with a liquid insecticide like Taurus SC (http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/taurus-sc-termiticide-p-1816.html) by drenching the mound. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 866-581-7378 Monday- Friday from 9-5.

Works great for camel back crickets. However any bait left on surface from previous season must be replaced with fresh bait for maximum effectiveness
By Robert in Longs on 07/07/2017
This works very good for carpenter ants so far.
Niban FG Don't waste your money
By Thomas in NC on 05/08/2017
Bought Niban FG followed directions to the T & the ants would Not eat it. Ddidn't touch it at all. I wasted my money & yes I know they're carpenter ants.
By Sam in Chandler on 05/05/2017
I had silverfish in the attic of my condo and nothing worked. I tried borax, orange guard, pyrethrin spray and powder and none of it prevented them. I put the niban all over the attic and floors a week and a half ago and have only seen 2 living silverfish. I will keep reapplying, but so far it has helped much more than anything else I've tried.

Our Pharaoh Ants seem to be enjoying our kitchen more...
By Kurt in Sun City Center, Florida on 01/30/2017
We were optimistic and counting on NiBan-FG to take care of these tiny little ants. But not a single ant will go near the bait. They all go around it, even after I put it in their way. Now they have increased and had branched off to my home office in another part of the house. They seem to love my Mac keyboard. So far, they appear to be coming and going to the attic. We appreciate any advice you can share. Thanks!
Thank you for your comments! We are sorry that you are not having success with the NiBan Granular Bait. The ants are probably looking for carbohydrates/sweets and/or moisture if they are not attracted to the Niban, so a gel or liquid bait would be recommended. You can test to find out if the ants are attracted to sweets by putting out a bit of honey, jelly, or syrup near the ant trails to see if they are attracted to it. If so, then we would recommend a sweet bait. Maxforce Quantum is an excellent sweet bait for most types of ants, even ones with very large colonies: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/maxforce-quantum-ant-bait-p-1884.html You may also want to use a perimeter and spot spray where ants may be entering the structure, such as Temprid SC or Temprid Ready Spray: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/temprid-sc-insecticide-p-1175.html http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/temprid-ready-spray-p-2657.html We can also assist you over the phone at 866-581-7378 M-F 9a-5p EST.

Niban-FG - 4lb Pail
By Mrs. in Maricopa County Arizona on 09/22/2016
We live in the Arizona desert where large sand colored spider crickets and giant cock roaches invaded our home for two years until I found this. We sprinkle it around our home after every storm and it will kill them all even if they crossed the threshold they wouldn't make it far before dying. My husband has some kind of shaker he uses to shake it around our home and it last about a month. I give it a 10.

This stuff works.
By Ann in Centennial, CO on 08/05/2016
I have used Niban bait to control silverfish in my basement, and it is the only thing that has ever worked. The silverfish have almost totally disappeared, along with spiders and centipedes. It is easy to use, and effective.

QWhat is the difference between Niban Granular Bait and Niban FG?
AThe 'FG' in Niban FG stands for 'fine granular.' This means that the granules in the Niban FG will be finer (smailler) than those in the Niban Granular Bait. The finer granules make it easier to apply Niban FG in small cracks and crevices.

QWill Niban harm small geckos?
We live in Hawaii, and we have a lot of geckos in and outside of our home. I want to kill the roaches that the geckos don't get, however, I don't want to harm them in anyway. We also have wild chickens and roosters. Will Niban take care of the palmettos?
AGeckos are not attracted to the Niban granules and they are highly unlikely to dead insects that have succumbed to the bait. Niban granules should have no effect on geckos, chickens or roosters. American cockroaches, sometimes called palmetto bugs are listed on the Niban granule product label and the Niban granules seem to do a great job eliminating them.

QCan I apply Niban Fine Granular Bait on ant mounds? If so, how?
AYes, you want to apply it in a one foot band around the mound circling up to the center of the mound.
QI have 4 cats and 1 dog. My Mother is on oxygen 24/7, will the Niban granules injure them in anyway?
My Mother is on oxygen 24/7, I have 4 cats, and 1 dog. Will it harm my pets if they ingest the granules? Also, will the granules kill the female & the egg sack she is carrying? I have an infestation of German Cockroaches, severe, and have Orkin coming out to put the gel out, but, they seem to keep coming out. I have been cleaning a lot of "stuff" out of my house that would give them a place to hide a breed. Also, are the granules good for killing fire ants? I have them in my front yard and nothing seems to work on them, except gasoline, which I refuse to use. I would appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you in advance.
AThe Niban Granules are very safe and should cause no issues with your pets, as long as you apply them correctly. The niban granules are no stronger than anything Orkin has placed out in your home. Of course you would not want to leave the Niban Granules out in the open where your pets could get into the container. You should apply the Niban Granules underneath and behind appliances, in wall voids, and other places that your pets cannot gain access to. It will not kill the egg sack, only the roaches that eat the granules. Niban is not labeled for fire ants. For fire ants we would recommend our most popular product which is Extinguish Plus Fire Ant Bait.

QCan Niban be put in trays in attic and when would they need to be replaced?
Large attic with silverfish problem in some areas. Grandchildren occasionally like to go get things from the attic so I want to use removable trays instead of spreading around. How long will it last?
ANiban can be put in removable bait trays such as a bait plate station in the attic area. You should plan on replacing the bait every couple of months to ensure it is still fresh.
QHow many bottles of 1 lb Niban Fine Granular Bait do I need?
My house is about 24 feet by 42 feet. I see a ton of silverfish mostly on the upper floor, so I suspect there are a lot of them in the attic and inside the walls. I want to go into the attic and treat it with Niban FG. About how many bottles of 1 lb Niban FG do I need to treat the entire attic and pour some down the inside of the walls?
