DESCRIPTION: NIBAN is a weather / moisture resistant Boric Acid based interior / exterior bait labeled for Ants (argentine, carpenter, thief, little black ants, pavement, odorous house, and pharoah), Cockroaches, Crickets, Silverfish, Snails and Slugs. 4 lb. shaker.
USE: Niban comes in a tip and pour bottle for easy application. We recommend applying the granules with a hand spreader for applications in large areas. Can be applied indoors and outdoors. For outdoors: apply where ants forage or in a 2-4 foot band around your home. Can be applied on lawns and in gardens. Indoors: Spread in attics, cellars, crawl spaces, cracks and crevices.
Niban's weatherized granules don't degrade from heat or sunlight and will last through four inches of rain. Niban is the one bait that will continue to work because Niban has no known resistance and is virutally odorless.
Niban kills the micro organisms in the insect's stomach and blocks enzyme production causing starvation. And since it affects none of the insect's major systems, they can't develop resistance.
Be careful of children and pets. 1 cup treats approx. 100 sq.ft. DO NOT apply residual insecticides or sprays near baits as that will deter pests from taking the bait. Always read the label!

Great product, Great Seller, Great Shipping!
By JL on October 12, 2011
I love this stuff! I've had a problem with cave crickets for the past two years now. I had an exterminator out last year and that was expensive! He bombed the house, which was an awful chemical mess. I had to clean and wash everything that I didn't remove from the house, since it could have killed my dog. He had to come back 29 days later because, as he said, "something hatched," and the warranty was only good for 30 days following the initial treatment. He then sprinkled some kind of granular stuff around the house. That seemed like something I could do myself, if yet something else hatched. But when I asked him if I could buy the stuff he was using, he told me it wasn't available to the general public. What a liar! This year, when the crickets returned, I found it on Amazon in, like, two seconds, which was how I hooked up with DoMyOwnPestControl.com. It is the exact same stuff the exterminator used. It worked very quickly, is relatively safe to use around my dog, and I haven't seen another cricket since. I bought the 4lb shaker, used it around the exterior perimeter and inside, in the hard to reach places where insects can usually get in, near plumbing/electrical/gas lines. In the end, the Niban with the free shipping was less than 1/4 the price of the exterminator's bill. I'll just keep using this from now on. Had the exterminator just told me what he was using, I would have had this on hand this year when the crickets came back, been able to deal with the problem immediately, and not a week after the first insect appeared, and would not feel distrust toward the entire industry of exterminators. I probably would have bought the stuff from him and continued to do so for years to come. Instead, I'll just stick with this web site. The shipping took a few days, but in the end, it was a lot less stressful and very easy to use. Next, I'm going to tackle the mosquitoes that have been ruining summer in my yard for the past few years.

I had a camel-back cricket problem before I found this stuff. Works great. Used 5 pounds three years ago and haven't needed it since now.

Works perfectly for cave cricket infestations
By James on July 16, 2012
Before winning my war against the cave crickets/ants by using Niban, I installed a closed window between a formerly open gateway between the basement of my house and crawlspace that is below an enclosed concrete porch. Through that window, I looked into the crawl space and counted over 50 live cave crickets alive and preparing for battle. The basement is a typical 'yankee basement' which consistent of little lighting, raised dirt floor areas (covering half the area) and an average humidity of 80%. The crawlspace is total darkness as there is only one window which used to be open area between the basement and crawlspace. Prior to Niban, I would vacuum kill about two dozen of the enemy during skirmishes in the basement every couple days, finding and killing cave crickets ambushing my loved one on the first and second floors, using Terro to kill the hundreds of ants around the property trying to make their way in. Low on moral after months in the trenches, and eager any sort of victory against the cave crickets, I tried bug bombing the basement and crawl space. The enemy remained, strong as ever, planning their next sortee and passing their survival genes to the next of kin. I learned much online about the enemy on hand during the months at war, recommendations about Niban, and decided after bombing that either an exterminator or their products were needed. I bought then used 2lbs of Niban, sprinkling it around the basement dirt areas that could be reached, tossing ounces of it to 'dust' the far raised dirt areas in the basement and crawl space areas, then never again saw a single live cave cricket or ant indoors from the day after treatment to weeks and counting. From that day, I learned first hand that Niban was the weapon of choice and 'domyownpestcontrol.com' enabled my victory. I strongly recommend it, the cost is cheaper than an exterminator and its one of the same exact products they use. I read that Niban lasts for months how I used it indoors, so like an exterminator, once a quarter, I will redust the place to keep everything perfect.

Something that finally works - Niban Granular Bait
By Kathy on October 24, 2011
I HATE camel crickets and this product really works. I must admit I was doubtful but figured it was worth a try. In addition to the Niban, we also wrapped cardboard with duct tape and had about 4 that stuck to the tape. After that, we haven't seen any. It has worked like a charm. I was always afraid to go out in the basement and would poke my head in the door and look before I entered to see if I saw any of those awful creatures. Now, I don't even think about going out there. Thank you so much!

Seems to work well
By Donald on May 21, 2011
I sprinkled small amounts down outside wherever I saw ants and they were carrying it away almost immediately. I have seen alot less ants after a week, so it looks like pretty good stuff.
So far so good
By Ahills on April 23, 2013
We put this out a little more than two weeks ago and then left town for a few days and have not seen one live roach since. I have seen a few dead but hopefully they are dying in their nest. Before, even after repeated spraying by a pest professional I was seeing approx. two or three dead a day and then up to ten crawling around dying or even fully alive. So glad I found this product I can now sit in my backyard peacefully!
The real deal!
By Joeypizza on April 19, 2013
Worth every cent! Do yourself a favor, if you have a ant problem, look no further! Plain and simple!
By John on April 8, 2013
Thsi product is the cat's meow! Apply around house perimeter when expecting a week of dry weather and you wan't see any roaches for at least 6 months. No need to spray inside anymore.
Still Great - Monthly Method
By Zard on February 2, 2013
Been using niban (and intice) for many years. still keeps the ants out. i spread 8 inch barrier every month -- rotating inner, middle, and outer. this method is more effective than when we hired a profession who supposedly did 24 inches every 3 months. my wife is happy so i am happy.
Takes care of ant problems lickety split
By Diane on November 9, 2012
I work for an elementary school with a lot of wonderful grassy areas. Of course, with grass come colonies of ants. We just sprinkle the Niban bait along the line of the ants and on their ant hills, and in a couple of hours the ants are gone. It was hard to find something that was safe to use around children, and we're thrilled we found this product.
By Rebecca on October 15, 2012
I had a lot of crickets in my basement. I ordered Niban and put some in the basement in several areas and sprinkled some around the house outside. I have seen a lot less crickets after a few days. I will put some in my attic also, we have silverfish there.
I Hate Cave Crickets!
By JL on October 14, 2012
I've been having a problem with cave crickets for the past three years. Cave crickets are very big, very aggressive insects that look like aliens. They walk, jump (usually right at me) and love dark spaces. If that's not enough, they are cannibal carnivores too. Prior to this invasion three years ago, I'd never heard of or seen them before. An expensive exterminator did not solve the cricket problem, though he did educate me about them. He used a "bomb" to get rid of them, which required a good deal of preparation ahead of time and cleaning after the fact. Within 29 days of treatment the crickets were back. The warranty was for 30 days. He did not bomb again, but sprinkled granules of something he said I couldn't buy anywhere myself. Whatever the stuff was, it worked. Instead of immediately calling the exterminator, I did a little research the second year, when the crickets returned. That's when I came across Niban. Surprise, surprise, it looked just like the granules the exterminator had used, and was the product that came up the most in my search results. I bought the Niban, treated the perimeter and possible entry points in my house and the crickets disappeared. This is the third year of the crickets and I kicked myself for not pre-treating at the end of summer. I could have prevented seeing the one that got in the house. They tend to pop up in early autumn, as the weather cools and dampens here in PA. I will not make that mistake again next year. I plan on keeping a supply of Niban on hand as long as I live in this house. It works with all kinds of insects, ants (which seem to have followed the crickets in), spiders, etc. I've noticed a difference in the weeks since I initially treated the exterior perimeter of the house. I haven't seen an ant, a cricket or anything else. I do re-apply after heavy winds and/or rain, but there's enough in the bottle to last me at least several months. Do My Own Pest Control is always fast and affordable. I plan on using them for any pest control needs I may have in the future.
works well cave crickets- but...
By Mike on October 9, 2012
it should be noted that it takes weeks to have an effect
By Terry on August 31, 2012
We have been overrun with silver fish, and nothing seemed to work. However, I bought this product - and also the little plastic "make your own traps ' - swept it into the wood floor and corners, then put the plastic bait traps we made in the most likely areas. We haven't seen a silverfish in 2 weeks. So, we are very happy. I chose this over another, similar, product that was a bit less expensive because it comes in a plastic container with a screw on lid. the difference in cost is more than made up for in ease of storing the bait safely. The other product only comes in a large bag, making it harder to keep it thoroughly closed and in good condition.

No more problem here!
By Jan on August 20, 2012
Used the Niban Granular bait for a problem with Palmeto bugs and other big roaches 2 years in a row. Had a big problem both years. Sprinkled this in the yard every week or 10 days 2 or 3 different times and the roaches seem to come out for the harvest and take it home to feed to their friends. Noticable difference right away and completely gone after a few weeks. Seems to be safer for the environment than other products. Will use this next year too!!!

June 13, 2011Ayelet asked:
QIs Niban Granular Bait safe for use in the house? Can I also use it for kitchen window?
I have a baby which crawls and two cats.
ANiban Granular Bait is safe for use in a home with children and pets when it is used according to the product label. Niban Granular Bait must be used in areas indoors that are accessible to insects but inaccessible to pets and children. Apply Niban Granular Bait to cracks and crevices around the perimeter of rooms, under and behind appliances, and other areas where insects may harbor but which are inaccessible to children and pets. Applying the bait around your kitchen window should be fine.
July 18, 2011Elizabeth asked:
QHow long does Niban last before I have to treat again?
AThis will depend on the pest you are trying to eliminate and the area that you are using the Niban in. In areas with high pest pressure you may need to reapply every 1-2 weeks or as soon as you notice that the bait has been consumed. If you are treating for slugs the Niban product label states that you should reapply every 4 weeks, for most other pests the label simply states 'reapply as needed'.
October 15, 2011Tony from Houston Texas asked:
QWill Niban kill bed bugs?
ANo, Niban will not kill bed bugs. Niban is a granular bait for roaches, crickets, silverfish, ants, and other insects that eat food. Bed bugs feed on blood only. For bed bugs you should use a bed bug kit.
