Heavy duty piece of arsenal
By Alex in Nashville, TN on 05/13/2010
I bought this to use with the Delta Dust so I could stop carpenter bees from ruining my kids' wooden playset. The extension tube made reaching the holes easier, as did the curved tip. This duster is very heavy duty rubber and I was glad it wasn't something cheap and breakable. Holds a surprising amount even when only half full. Glad I won't need to keep refilling everytime. Getting the hang of squeezing the right amount of dust does take attention and practice. I didn't want to make the dust pile up at the opening of the bee hole and not get down into the tunnels so I squeezed lightly/moderately at a medium/slow rate. It also worked better for me when I held it upside to use it. It must have been effective because there has been no bee activity since I used this with the Delta Dust.

Good for penetrating dust in crevices
By Jon in Elgin, IL on 04/28/2010
Bought this in 2009 and have no regrets. Holds a lot of dust and is very forceful in getting the dust in crevices - my particular application was the soffits of my home on the second story no less! The extender is high quality brass metal. The curve at the end is great to be able to angle where you want the dust to go. Much better than those little hand dusters. One caution: upon release of the bulb after squeezing, be careful that debris in the crevice does not get drawn back into the bulb.

Great Product for using Dust
By D.g. in Washington, DC on 07/12/2009
This centrobulb duster is a great product for using your dust products. I learned about this product because my exterminator uses it. The shape of it is perfect for reaching under baseboards. I'm definitely buying this product so that I'm able to exterminate on my own.

Works exceptionally well
By Scott in Vienna, VA on 11/01/2014
Every year we have yellow jacket nests in our kids play areas. I bought this as a replacement for my homemade bottle duster. Works 10x better, especially dusting holes in the ground where the bulb has to be held vertically. Extension helps too. Solidly crafted. Strongly recommend.

Ordered this to apply diatomaceous earth. Arrived quicker than the earth. Seems heavy duty, both rubber and metals. Filled about half full, it applied a fine layer quickly and easily. I tested it on some small beetles and ants passing through a bathroom. No more bugs. Powder will stack on the mechanism and fall off when you pull it out of bulb. Makes a small mess. Fine product. Fine service.
The Best Duster Out There

Telling everyone I know
By Lp in San Antonio Texas on 07/13/2016
I love this tool! The 12" extension makes this tool so easy to use. It delivers a nice light dusting in either the upright or downward facing positions. I can control how much product is delivered by how hard and fast I compress the bulb. I do have a bit of leakage between the bulb and metal top when using the tool in the downward facing position but that is easily controlled by using two hands. I purchased the tool to deliver diatomaceous earth indoors and on plants. It works so well, I've been telling all my gardening friends about it.
Quality product; it came promptly as advertised
By David in La Plata, MD on 07/11/2016
The Centrobulb duster worked well both vertically and horizontally. This is a quality product. You just need to tap the bulb when the dust clears the applicator to reload. This product was delivered timely (within 5 days) and was packaged well. I will use DoMyOwnPestControl again!
By Fred in Syracuse, NY on 12/21/2015
Bought one of these three years ago. I ordered another one for a second vehicle. Great duster, far better than any Bellows duster I have. The extension makes it much easier to get into tight spaces and farther away from the nest/hole. Spend the extra money and get this model! Very durable. We use Tempo 1% dust for bee nests, excellent results with this.
By Douglas in Wimberley TX on 08/20/2015
This duster is awesome and with the longer extension you can really reach deep into the nesting crevices.

Won't find something this good in the big box stores!
By Cappy in Cranston, RI on 09/06/2013
As a matter of fact, don't even bother asking for an insecticide duster unless you plan on getting a look like you just stepped out of a U.F.O. This product works as advertised. Had ants swarming around and in a tree, and this products took care of them. So far so good. I highly recommend this product. Built to last and comes with an extension. Thanks DoMyOwnPestControl.com!

QUsing the Centrobulb in an upright position
I need to dust the eaves around my house. Several reviews said the Centrobulb Duster did not work in an upright position. One even mentioned they did shake the powder before using. What are they doing wrong?
AThe Centrobulb duster actually has a brass tube with a filter on the end that runs inside the length of the bulb. When people are trying to use the the duster with the nozzle pointed straight up, they are blocking the filter with all of the dust and the air cannot circulate. The Centrobulb duster should be used either with the nozzle parallel to the ground or with the nozzle pointed down to the ground for the most consistent dust applications. If you really need to use it with the nozzle pointed up then you can add a marble or small bearing to the bulb (this will help break up clumps of dust and help avoid clogging), only fill the bulb about 1/4 full of dust and shake the duster each time you squeeze the bulb.
QCan I get the instructions for a Centrobulb duster?
I just purchased and received a Centrobulb Duster and Delta Dust. There were no instructions included with the products, but I did find instructions on your site for Delta Dust. In these instruction it suggested “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” Do you suggest doing this with the Centrobulb Duster?
AYes, it is advised to place a marble or rock in the duster. This will prevent the dust from getting clumpy sometimes in humid or moist conditions and prevent the duster from clogging. A marble seems to work very well.

QCountry of Origin for Centrobulb duster?
Can you please tell me the country of origin for this duster?
AThe Centrobulb duster in made in the United States in New York.
QDo they make a 6 or 12 inch extension for this Centrobulb duster?
AThis centrobulb duster that we sell comes with a 12" extension. You can also use the duster without the extension if you need to. It does not come with extensions of any other size.
06/22/2012 David from Nanaimo, British Columbia
QCan the Centrobulb Duster be used without the Curved Tip?
I have Carpenter Ants in the wall and I want to drill small holes through the drywall right into the studs around where the Ants are nesting. The curved tip would make it impossible to fit the applicator into the small holes I will be drilling into the wall, but if the curved tip can be disconnected from the the 12" extension, I will have no problems inserting the applicator through the small hole in the drywall and into the studs where the Ants are nesting. Thanks for your time.
AYes, you can use the centrobulb duster without the curved tip. However, the tip is smaller than the extension tube so it may not be the best fit. You may want to look at the B&G 1150 duster which comes with long, thin, bendable nozzles that may work better for your use.

QMy Centrobulb extension broke off the tip and I need to replace the screw-in tip.
The little threaded piece is in the tip and I cannot fasten the extension to it anymore. Do you sell the tip or do you know a place that does?
AThe manufacturer does not make the piece you are seeking available by itself. We apologize for any inconvenience.

QHow do I use the Centrobulb? It keeps clogging?
The Centrobulb you recently shipped to me came with an note which states that it "operates most efficiently in the vertical position." You previously stated (in a Q&A) that it should *not* be used vertically. Do I have a newer type of bulb? In any event, I am having a great deal of trouble with clogging. I filled the bulb about 1/3 full - is that too much, too little? Shaking only helps temporarily. Any help would be greatly appreciated (I am using Drione dust in the duster).
AYes, the Centrobuld has been updated since 2011. As for the clogging of the Centro bulb duster, you can place a marble or rock in the duster. This will prevent the dust from getting clumpy sometimes in humid or moist conditions and prevent the duster from clogging. A marble seems to work very well. Let us know if you have any other questions.

QCan you store the dust in the duster or should you empty after each use?
AThe Centrobulb Duster and any other duster needs to be emptied and cleaned after each use. Leaving the dust in the resevior can cause decay and breakdown of the duster itself.
12/29/2013 Tony from Baltimore Md
QHow do you stop the dust from coming out of the sides of the Centrolbulb Duster?
I've cleaned edges & washer but nothing seems to works
ADust should not be coming out of the sides of your Centrobulb duster. Either the top is not fully screwed on or you have a defective unit. If your duster continues to not function properly, please contact us by phone 1-866-581-7378.

QWhat is the size of the Centrobulb Duster in inches?
AThe Centrobulb Duster is 12.30 inches long and 3.90 inches wide.

QCan I replace the extension on the Centrobulb Duster?
I accidently broke the 12" brass extension from the Centrobulb duster. The brass broke off at the base of the funnel. My question is, is it easy to replace it with a new 12" brass extension - by removing the broken brass piece with pliers? Or is that broken brass piece "welded" into the funnel?
