Boric acid will kill a roach in about a day. Boric acid is eaten by the roach and paralyzes them so they can't move or eat.

After treatment roaches may still be seen for a couple of weeks or longer. It all depends on what type of dwelling the roaches were exterminated in.

Roaches don't gestate. This term is reserved for mammals that have a pregnancy period.

If you can find their nest, spray their next with an insecticide. It's best to kill off the army's bunk first! To attract the ants, mix in a bowl: boric acid (about three tablespoons), a half-cup of sugar, and one cup of warm water. The boric acid is fairly safe for humans to handle with as long as you try not to inhale it too much. Anyways, soak the mixture with cotton balls and set up the balls around the ants. The ants will eat the cotton balls and DIE!

Acid reflux can cause cancer of the throat if it is severe and left untreated for a long period of time. The disease itself will not kill you in your sleep.

The long term effects of acid rain are negative. It can erode buildings, cars, statues and can kill organisms and plants.

There is a difference between boric acid and borax, which is the laundry additive. Boric acid is usually found at drugstores or pharmacies, and borax (the most common brand name sold is 20 Mule Team) is found in grocery stores.I've provided a link to an article that explains how to make a borax ant case you have no luck finding boric acid.I actually have this problem every year.I recently came across a website that said boric acid powder helps kill them for good. So I gave it a shot since the boric detergent cost me only $3 from target and raid cost me $4, but raid only temporarily solves the problem."First, pick up some Boric acid powder (available at most drug stores) and mix a small amount of it 50:50 with table sugar. There's nothing particularly scientific about this ratio, so it's fine to just eyeball it. Next, put some of this mix into a small container such as the the cap from a milk jug or the lid from a 2 liter bottle. Finally, drizzle some water into it to make a slurry (i.e., a thick suspension). That's it - you're now ready to kill some ants.Once your concoction is ready, simply set the mix in the path of the oncoming ants (they usually form a foraging trail) and then wait. At this point it's important to be patient and not kill any of the ants yourself. The reason for this is that you want them to take your tasty treat back to the nest with them. Boric acid is toxic to ants, but it doesn't work immediately. As such, you need to let them forage and then take it back home to share with their nestmates - this will ultimately wipe out the entire colony."Source:

Roaches can only live without water for 1 month. They can survive without food for 3 months.

Roaches lay one egg at a time. These are long oval semi flat eggs that can have hundreds of babies inside.

Yes they do, their antennae are long and thread like.

Pickles can be open for weeks! Acid in pickles kill germs and protect the pickles.

You will probably kill it, certainly the solution is very acid and before too long it will harbour bacteria that will kill the roots.

seens my mom got butty never

Sulfur candles are the fastest way to get rid of roaches, and anything that moves that you don't want in your house. It works great in heavely infested places. Roaches do not come back for a long, long time. This was in the 1970's. I am not sure whether you can get the real original sulfur candles anymore. But I am looking because I want to be ready for bedbugs if they happen to invade my home.

Not long just long enough to eat away your oesophagus & intestines. You;ll either bleed out or dies if a severe infection. Somewhere between 2 to 24 hours depends on the acid strength.

It will die when it reaches the stomach, because the acid you have in your stomach will kill it

It will depend on what was used to treat the roaches. You should ask your landlord or the person or company who treated the building.

Citric acid can kill some types of bacteria if applied in high enough concentrations (usually 1-3% v/v) and left sitting on the food long enough. However, citric acid also changes the flavor of the food somewhat and a high concentration of citric acid may make the food unpalatable.

None. Acid is a mind altering drug that can kill you. Many have thought it was good and that it wouldn't kill them. You can ask them their opinion but, no, sorry, they're dead. ~ i do not agree with you. not everyone who does acid is dead. that is a false statement. i will not say that acid is good however. it does alter your mind, and traces of it can be found in your spine for the rest of your life. and some people over use it, and get stuck in a life long trip.

According to the pharmacy, it does expire, but lasts up until at least the expiration date printed on the side, even if it has been opened long before that date. For vaginal yeast infections (or anything else you're using it for, I suppose), if it stops working effectively before the expiration, talk to your doctor, it's unlikely that the acid itself has changed.

This will depend on how much vinegar you are looking to have evaporate. Vinegar is a mixture of acetic acid and water. Acetic acid will evaporate faster than water at a rate of .97.

You should leave it place if properly applied since dusts are for areas where you can't touch (and consequesntly where the roaches live) unless you eliminate those areas by other means such as proofing (sealing to exclude) cracks, etc. with silicone etc. Remember borax does not break down nor is it repellent, but it's good protection from a reintroduction if you can leave it alone.

ants can carry tens time their size, they are a centimeter long, they work day and night till winter nonstop roaches are fast brown bugs, they can live for 15 minutes without their head
