              A:  Only if they cover themselves with it. The mechanism of death is acidity. I use it on the box behind the wall that the weatr lines comthrough th fro the shower and bath ,no conrete there. Termite treated and resprayed by termite servie. But a main entrance point fpr roaches and silverfish. upon removal of the inspection plate from the wall,bodies everywhere.

              by|Sep 4, 2022

                A:  Actually, I have no idea. I bought this for my son whose apartment was overrun by roaches because management did a horrible job of controlling them. It seems to have helped because he put the powder under appliances and along the baseboards.  He does not have any pets or children. And so far as killing bees, I think you would be better to find a professional to relocate the bees. They are so important to our own food supply that I would not encourage you to kill them yourself. A few years ago I had an infestation of bees in my water irrigation box. Apparently they had been in there for a couple of years and had a huge honeycomb. By the time I noticed them, they were buzzing around my front door! I called a bee Relocator that I found through the fire department. He did the best he could and destroyed the honeycomb once he had cleaned out the base. And experience I do not want to go through again. Check with your local fire department or a pest control service for a professional bee remover. There are beekeepers that will be happy to come and relocate the queen and her minions! Good luck to you.

                  INEXPENSIVE ant killer when other products/methods fail
                  With this boric acid powder, you can make your own VERY EFFECTIVE ant killer. If you take the time to search some do-it-yourself sites, a few demonstrations and explanations will show you how to mix, what proportions of boric acid powder to use to what proportion of sweet-sugary-based or oily-grease-based foodstuff to use, and how to keep it moist. I use a small dab of high-fructose corn syrup and sugar strawberry jam (makes a pink color bait) ... or small dab of creamy peanut butter for the other kind of ant appetite. Find their marching trail, and dribble a bit around the trap (I use an plastic lid from an old food jar or beverage container .... and the little guys can't resist! Within a half hour, the thing is swarming with ants feeding, and taking the poison back to their lair - presumably to feed the others and the QUEEN and her larvae. I t should take about 72 hours or so, and there is a dramatic reduction, and eventually a complete halt to ant activity in your kitchen, or bathroom, or wherever you see them inside your house. Usual cautions apply if you have pets or infants. This will work when the pre-made baits don't do the trick.
