Is "20 mule team borax" at the grocery store the same as what they sell in taxidermy catalogs?

yes it is the same thing. Some suppliers sell a puffed borax also, for which I have never found much use. Just go to your grocery store and buy the old mule team. It'll do you just fine.
Just recently learned that borax comes in different degrees of dryness. the higher the number eg.10,20,30 the less moisture so it dries things out more.
I use 20 mule team borax to rinse my capes to moth proof them.
I use it all the time as a preservitive. Especially when mounting fish.
I was told that to rid your home of spiders, many in IL this year, sprinkle borax powder in your attic. Anyone heard of this? Is it worth trying. The only thing i've found that works so far is to give them a little heel.
