What is the process?


Answer by  wjgsert (403)

Borax is made from a naturally occurring chemical that kills insects by acting as a stomach poison when ingested and absorbing the waxes that keep an insect from drying out.

Their really is not a process. Borax is toxic to many insects and when they ingest it it is poisonous which causes them to die.

first, expose the insect into sunlight and put borax on his eyes and for better result put some salt on it, this will kill the insect but don't do if not necessary, be careful not to harm them if they don't do anything on you just leave them on wherever place away from you
