About us   

Boric acid and its borate salts were first registered for use in 1948. These compounds are forms of the naturally occurring element boron. They can be found in rocks, plants, soil, and water. Boric acid and borate salts work against pests in a variety of ways allowing for a wide range of uses, including uses as insecticides, herbicides, algaecides, and fungicides.
