Borax can be sprinkled in carpets, beds, furniture and especially around baseboards to help control pesky pests. I live in Florida where fleas, roaches and ants are very
prevalent. This has been the most non-toxic relief I have found!
Leave in carpet and broom or rake it in deep to control a flea infection. Leave on furniture and bedding for at least an hour and vacuum, don't worry about what falls into the
cracks (that actually helps).
