Apply to Kitchen Electrical Outlets

I plan to apply delta dust with a duster to all electrical outlets in my house, after removing the outlet covers. I'm curious though, I have 3 outlets in my kitchen that are right above the counter space...is it ok to apply the delta dust to these outlets. One of these outlets experienced a fair amount of ants last year. I guess I'm a little nervous about dusting that close to a food space even though I'm dusting into the wall void. Maybe I'm being over nervous with my first use of this product. :-) Finally, do I need to wear a make and gloves when using the duster?


Yes, Delta Dust can be applied to all the outlets in your kitchen, as well as in your home. It is not necessary to wear gloves or a mask. Make sure that you are doing a light dusting in these areas so that the pests will walk through it and dry out. Since it's in the wall voids, it will not affect your food.
