How long do these last or should be replaced?
Asked by: chasp
Chasp - The Boric acid will be good as long as it is dry. But I would replace tablets once every three months so that the lure contained is fresh.

Safe for old books?

I have some old books (100 years +) that I inherited from my grandparents . . . but there were silverfish living in the attic where they were stored. Are these tablets safe for old and fragile books?
Asked by: Michelle
Old books shouldn't be kept in the attic, regardless. The paper probably contains lignins that eventually degrade into organic acids and turn the paper brown, eventually destroying it. Heat speeds up the natural process. Unless you put the tablets directly on the books, probably won't harm them, though.

6 oz. Famous Roach Tablets is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use! Effective! I very rarely have a roach problem but recently had an issue seeing them coming out from around the top of my dishwasher. I sprayed Spectrazide House Insect killer everywhere I could reach around the dishwasher and cabinets. In a few days, I saw roaches again so I decided to try these tablets. I had never heard of Harris Famous Roach tablets and after reading many positive reviews, I purchased them. They are easy to use, no odor, inexpensive, with 40% Boric Acid as the active ingredient. The tablet form is so much easier to use than boric acid powder. I was able to slip these tablets in crevices around and under my dishwasher, and bottom of dishwasher housing, as well as placing them in the inside corners of cabinets. Has been 2 weeks and have not seen anymore roaches!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Discovery of a Lifetime I have been on the planet for 78 years and never heard of Harris Famous Roach Tablets. Roaches have been a constant challenge in my life and I have tried everything. The Boric acid powder was the only thing that worked but very messy to use. I heard about them from a lady online. She also had not heard about them. The roaches never saw it coming. RIP...Get rid of the power. Clean to use,. I have been doing the happy dance ever since. To think they have been around since 1922. I wasn't even born yet. I know there are others like me who would appreciate hearing about this can you imagine 1922?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Am I missing something? I purchased this product about a month ago after seeing how many people absolutely loved it. We have a brown roach problem, they haven't gotten too large quite yet but I've seen some about an inch long. I put two of these tablets where I would see the roaches hanging out, two on the stove, two around the sink (their water source), dropped behind the walls and general areas. I noticed no difference at all in the number of roaches. I managed to catch one in a bowl, I placed a glass cup over it. I trapped Randy the Roach in there with one of these tablets. Randy lived four days. I gave him a little bell pepper and he lived on for another week. Am I missing something here? The photo is Randy the Roach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have silverfish in my foyer! I started seeing a silverfish every week or two in my basement laundry room and then my upstairs bathroom. My son spread diatomaceous earth along all the walls of the bathroom which got rid of them there. Then I started to see the odd one in my foyer so I bought sticky silverfish traps and caught a few. But then I saw one on my kitchen windowsill! Before I could grab a paper towel to squash it, it had run into a crack. It became obvious that they had invaded our house. After reading the reviews, I order these tablets which arrived in a heavy duty ziplock bag to prevent moisture from getting in. I put a tablet near the radiator in the bathroom and foyer, between the dryer and exterior wall, and in front of the crack on my windowsill. It has been six months and I am very happy to report that I haven't seen a silverfish since. These really do work. Thank you Home Depot for selling them on your website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Really Works! The tablets really do work! I began having roach problems several months ago and tried a variety of different products, including having a professional come in, and none of that worked to get rid of the roaches. I found an article about Harris Famous Roach Tablets and decided that for just $5 and because I had not tried tablets before, I would give it a try. To my amazement, I began to see fewer roaches 2 days after I put out the tablets. It is now 1 week after I placed the tablets and I have not seen even one roach! As an extra plus, the box of approximately 100 tablets was only about $5 and I only put out 12-15 tablets (per the instructions). Thank you to Harris!

It allowed me to reach areas I couldn't normally reach. I will continue to use these for preventative methods as well.
