Is Borax toxic for dogs?

I have discovered wood beetle (woodworm) in quite a few pieces of wooden furniture around my house, and a few holes in the wooden doors. I am not happy about using commercial woodworm killer, as it's pretty toxic. There are also some holes in my floor boards so they would need treating too. So I heard Borax, dissolved in hot water and sprayed or painted onto the wood will kill the beetles and prevent infestation. But I don't know if any remaining fumes in the air might affect my dog, even though I would do this with doors and windows open. And if she gets any of the dried borax on her feet which would probably remain on the floors after treating the boards? I really have no idea about Borax and whether it is toxic for dogs.
Does anyone know if doing this would be safe for her?
