How to turn regular Boric Acid bought from Rite Aid into pesticide?

Question by : How to turn regular Boric Acid bought from Rite Aid into pesticide?
This morning i bought two bottles of store brand Boric acid powder from Rite Aid because i heard it kills carpet beetles and their larvae. I have found these little annoying things mostly by my windows and doors but occasionally find them around the carpet as well. My cat sits by the windows and doors and i guess carries these things on him and takes them around the house with him. I want to know how to use these bottles of boric acid as a pesticide and also know how to safely use it around my family and pets. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I have used Boric Acid in the past using a plastic container that either has small hole on the tip (such as a Ketchup Squeezer that you can get at the dollar store) or an old spice shaker (such as the ones they sell at the store with spices on them) clean and dry really well and fill it with the boric acid an then sprinkle it on the places you need to. It’s safe for you and for your pet.

    It already is a pesticide.

    Consider – when – you apply it around the crack, crevices, carpet edges, behind floor trim, cabinet bases and other places – that you DO NOT apply it too heavy.

    What is best is a dusting. They will pick it up on their feet and apply it automatically to their bodies when grooming. If the application is too heavy – (piles, lumps, etc). they will avoid it and not pick it up.
