Where to buy boric acid?
As mentioned in my previous post, one of the things we tried to get rid of ants in our house was boric acid. However, when we decided to buy boric acid, we had no idea from where to buy it. Doing a search on the internet indicated that it's available at hardware stores. Unfortunately, when I tried Home Depot and other hardware stores in our area, they didn't stock it. Similarly, when I asked the associates at our local grocery store, they had no clue what boric acid was and what it was used for. Finally, one day, while in our local grocery store, I thought that since boric acid is a chemical, the pharmacist would probably know where to buy it from. My hunch proved right. The pharmacist told that it was a special item and they could get it within one day (no prescription required). She told me that it will cost about $7 for a small bottle. I went back to them a couple of days later and got a small bottle of boric acid for $12.97. The price seemed excessive given the small size of the bottle but since we wanted to get rid of ants, I bought it. A few days later, while visiting a dollar store, I found out that they also sell boric acid. The small bottle (5 oz) of Orthoboric acid at that dollar store was selling for $1.49. So if you need boric acid, it probably pays to check out dollar stores before buying it from a pharmacy or hardware stores as chances are that the dollar stores would sell it for the cheapest amount.
