The Bellow Hand Duster features new design enhancements that make it the “Professional’s Choice” when it comes to crack and crevice treatments of fine dust products into small areas. This bellow hand duster features a new bellows and spring that is much easier to compress and use than other similar dusters on the market. In addition, the clean-out rod comes with an o-ring for a tighter seal to prevent dust from escaping out the back of the duster. A 5+ inch extension makes it easy to treat hard to reach places. The metal extension also features an insulated black tip to prevent a shock hazard when dusting near electrical outlets. To use the duster, fill the rubber container (bellows) half-way full with an insecticide dust product such as Delta Dust or Pyganic Dust. It is also recommended to place a small rock in the duster to help break up the dust and prevent it from clumping. Compressing the bellows will cause dust to escape the metal tip of the duster. Using a duster allows you to inject dust more easily into cracks and crevices or inside wall voids where insects like to hide. We highly recommend purchasing a duster when applying any dust products. Note: This hand duster does not come with an insecticide dust. You will have to purchase the dust separately.

How do I properly use the hand duster?
Remove black rubber cap from top of the bellows. The duster should be filled only halfway with dust - no more than two-thirds full. This allows for adequate air space to create the desired air/dust mixture prior to application. If there is too much dust in the duster, clumps of dust on treated surfaces may result, leading to over application of the product and messy spills.
Between each squeeze, the duster should be shaken slightly to get dust floating inside the duster.
When applying dust into cracks and crevices and on surfaces, gently squeeze the duster to ensure the application of very thin layers of dust. When dusting correctly, you should barely be able to see the dust emerging from the tip of the duster.
Before relaxing your grip on the duster, pull it away from the surface or crack you are treating to prevent sucking up lint, moisture or debris. Small amounts of these items will eventually cause lumping and/or clogging of the duster. In the event that the nozzle becomes clogged, you may unscrew the rod from the rear of the nozzle and insert it into the nozzle to break up any clogs.
The easiest way (and correct way) to use the duster is upside down (with the bellows facing downward). Place several pebbles or small ball bearings in your duster to keep the dust agitated and ensure than any clumps are broken up prior to application.
- Carry a small brush and a damp cloth. These can be used in the event that dust accidentally drifts out of cracks and crevices and onto non-target areas. Use the brush to push excess dust into cracks, and use the cloth to wipe up.

Well, I have a spider issue in my house, as many others do as well. I have a small studio apartment in California, very old and in an area with a lot of trees. I bought Delta Dust to spray around my house as a preventative. So I've only used this hand duster with that product. I've found it very easy to use, and great for getting into all of those cracks and whatnot around my apartment. It has semi-clogged once, but I just shook it hard and that resolved the issue. I read somewhere to put a couple of rocks in the blower to keep clumps from forming, but I did not have that issue. It may be that since California has such a low humidity level that clumps are not as likely. The blower was very easy to fill, cap, and begin to use immediately. I have seen that as the dust gets low, I have to shake it a bit to settle the contents at the bottom, but it's not a huge problem. So I've had a very positive experience, and I've very glad I got this to distribute the Delta Dust with.

Low cost duster that works well!
By Richard on June 25, 2010
I got this to use with Delta Dust in our crawl spaces and have now started using it to blow the dust into cracks between the wood siding too. It works well, just be careful when filling it since the stopper hole is about the same size as the Delta Dust 1lb bottle top.

I was looking for something to apply BT to my cole crops. The Hudson Adjutant tin duster was terrible and cost me almost twice as much! It required constant shaking and lots of muscle power. The bellow hand duster is much easier to use and more accurate. Love it. Thanks!

The Mighty Little Duster
By Donald on July 15, 2010
I have always enjoyed working with the hand duster. It allows you to get into small areas and cracks and crevices where the insects hide and live. A great tool to use.
June 3, 2013
Just used this with Tempo 1%. I liked the duster and it worked well. I put a couple of small metal nuts in to keep the powder from clumping up. May be my newness to the product but some times it shot out actual dust rather than the mist or cloud like puff. One thing to look at is a longer tube or an extension All in All a great product

Good product, just had to wait way to long for the product to get here. Had to call a professional in to solve the problem....couldn't wait any longer.
bellow hand duster
By Acergurl on May 11, 2013
this is second one I bought because the one I had bought last year the outside rubber dried up & got all crumbly like & the top ended up having slits in it & "NO" - I did not cut it. It also came in blue color, not red but it doesn't matter because it does the job. I will buy another if I have to next year because it does work, it just falls apart easy in storage.
Cracked after a few months
By Paul on May 5, 2013
total bummer...the rubber base cracked after just a few months (in several spots). I loaded it up with some powder, squeezed it, and the powder shot out from the sides (instead of out of the nozzle).
Short life, then leaked
By Barbara on April 18, 2013
I have used this duster for only 6 months and the bellows cracked which then leaked the dust. Poor quality.
Works great but does not last.
By Vincent on April 11, 2013
This is my third duster. I keep it in a shed. It last six months. Drys out and cracks. it works so well that I just keep buying new .If It did not dry out I would give it five stars.
By Luke on April 4, 2013
I knew what this was from my days working for Orkin, It's great for putting dust on target in the cracks and crevices.

Works very well.
By Donald on February 13, 2013
We use this with the Delta Dust to control ants and carpenter bees. Would recomment a few marbles inside it to stir up the dust when you give it a shake. My last one gave up because I left it out outside all summer 2 years in a row and it is not UV resistant, kind of a dumb move on my part.... This duster can adjust from an ultra fine very small "size of a marble puff" to a stream of pure powder. Takes some practice to learn to use, but after you do this does an excellent job.

Came in pretty quick, was what it said it was, and did what it was suppose too. If I had to order from the company again, would do in a heart beat. Was very pleased.
Works as advertised
By Dr on January 24, 2013
Convenient, minimal mess, delivered promptly at fair price. Must hold belows down to deliver dust mist. If bellows on top, then "glob" of DE dust delivered. Mist of dust is more effective than "glob" re: ant control on perimeters. Very satisfied.

QI am getting too much dust when I squeeze the bellow hand duster. Am I doing something wrong?
Firstly thanks for your great level of service and pricing. My last order included Delta dust and a duster. I am trying to dust my electrical outlets, however I notice no matter how gently I squeeze the duster I seem to get dust all over the place. The Delta dust seems to spill out into a cloud out of the electrical outlets. I am concerned that I could inhale the dust. Any advice would be appreciated.
AYou are most likely holding the bellow hand duster incorrectly. After you fill the bellow hand duster about 1/4-1/3 of the way with dust you should replace the black cap and then flip the duster over so the red or blue band is now at the top and the black rubber cap is facing the ground. This will help you dispense smaller amounts of dust into the outlets.
July 27, 2011Jason asked:
QCan the hand duster be used multiple times?
I was going to use it with Tri Dust. How often do I have to replace it?
AThe bellow hand duster can be used over and over again with no problem. Be sure to store the duster in a cool dry environment so that the rubber on the duster will not breakdown. Most people have their bellow hand dusters for years before they need to be replaced.
July 21, 2012Angie from Ohio asked:
QHow can I solve the problem of a lot of dust shooting out with the duster?
When I use this with Drione Dust, a lot of dust just shoots out of the duster and it is really frustrating, so I want to know how to resolve this problem? Or do you have an electric duster for indoor purposes?
AThe bellow hand duster is made to hold in different positions to control the amount of dust that comes out. To let out the least amount of dust, you should actually hold the duster upside down, with the black plunger facing down. If you hold it to the side it will let out a little more, and then if you hold it upright, black plunger up which is probably how you are applying it now, it lets out the most amount of dust. The least amount of dust is actually the best method, so you should hold it upside down.
August 29, 2009Moh asked:
QHow much does a case of hand dusters weigh?
AOne case of Bellows Hand Dusters weighs 11 pounds.
June 7, 2011Linda asked:
QCan the same bellow hand duster be used with two different dust pesticides?
.... as long as it is emptied of the first type before filling it with the second type?
AAs long as the bellow hand duster is completely emptied of the first dust insecticide there should be no problem using a second dust product in the same duster.

Qgoing to kill bumble bee nest under a whiskey barrel. Is the inexpensive duster OK or do I need B&G?
The bees are definitely Bumble, not carpenter. They are in my back yard close to back door under a whiskey barrel planter. No body wants to move them, so I have to kill them. Too dangerous to allow them to stay with child & a dog that hunts bugs. I'm concerned about the nozzle length of the different dusters & being able to effectively get under the planter.
AThe bellow hand duster is usually sufficient for most small jobs. The bellow hand duster does have a 5 inch extension nozzle and you only have to get into the entrance of the nest. As the bees go in and out they will spread the dust through the nest themselves.
