Asked by: Vanesss
Yes, if you really want to get rid of roaches for good. Sprinkle it in places that you see roaches at all the time. It works guaranteed.

As you probably have already learned, the smell dissipates over time and exposure to the elements.

can I mix it with water and spray on with hose sprayer. Trying to keep ants out of my pavers.

if so, how much powder to make 4 oz. concentrate?
Asked by: Ron
I wouldn't recommend water to deliver it to ants. For them it's normally delivered in fine powder form so that the smallest ants can pick it up on their feet or bodies and hopefully carry it to the Queen. The active ingredient is Acephate, (O, S-Dimethyl Acetyphosphoramidothioate ). Acephate is of the Organophosphate family of chemicals. It will still work if dissolved in water, but it will be diluted and thus less effective. When acephate comes in contact with an insect's (NOT a mammal's) body, it bonds with the enzymes in an insect's nervous system that shut a nerve's contraction signal to muscles OFF. When the insect's nerves can no longer stop firing signals for the insect's muscles to contract, the insect will convulse as every muscle in its body fights every other muscle to move its limbs and organs. Acephate in even higher concentrations is used in Wasp Spray. That's why the wasp literally falls from the sky the moment it comes in contact with the spray. It can't control its wings. That fast action stops the "angry" swarm of wasps from stinging us. Watch the ants or wasps when they come in contact with acephate and you'll see its affect. Thank goodness it doesn't affect our mammalian nervous system in the same way.
