White powder next to the gutters?
« on: May 04, 2013, 01:38:59 PM »
Hey all,

We take or doggy for a walk every day and about a week and a half ago a white looking powder appeared in seemingly regular intervals next to some of the waterways.  We haven't been able to figure out what it is but I wanted to ask around because we were worried it might be harmful to our pooch, like some type of insecticide.  Anyone seen the same kind of stuff in your neighborhood?

Sorry, I'm not familiar with what you're describing.  Does it look at all like boric acid / the anti-mukade powder?

I haven't seen the anti-mukade powder before so I can't attest to that, but I wouldn't think it to be boric acid all over my streets.  Could be for mukade, but even my Japanese friends are unfamiliar with the white powder.

Boric Acid.  We use it for centipede and cockroaches.
