Delta Dust Insecticide

DELTA DUST containing deltamethrin is the world's first and only 100% waterproof insecticide dust, so it works in the wet and damp places that insects love. Nothing short of running water will disturb it, making Delta Dust an ideal crack and crevice treatment. Delta Dust should be applied with a bellows hand duster (sold seperately) which allows you to easily apply the dust in hard to reach areas. One application of Delta Dust will keep on killing insects for up to eight months.

Delta Dust should not be the only product used in the fight against bed bugs as it does not kill quick enough.  For best results, use a contact kill such as Sterifab or Bedlam in addition to Delta Dust.

Can not be shipped to NY.

DeltaDust containing deltamethrin is the world's first and only 100% waterproof insecticide dust, so it works in the wet and damp places that insects love. Nothing short of running water will disturb Delta Dust, making Delta Dust an ideal crack and crevice treatment. Delta Dust should be applied with a bellows hand duster (sold seperately) which allows you to easily apply the dust in hard to reach areas. One application of Delta Dust will keep on killing insects for up to eight months.

DELTADUST® Application Tips:
* DeltaDust is intended for application with a hand or power duster (Actisol® DPA or similar equipment), with a paint brush or by other suitable means, for hiding and runaway areas and other places where insects are found.
* In living areas, apply in such a manner as to avoid depositions on exposed surfaces or introducing the material into the air. In the home, all food processing surfaces and utensils should be covered during treatment or thoroughly washed before use. Exposed food should be covered or removed.
* To apply insecticide directly into cracks and crevices, use a bulbous duster or other suitable equipment. Apply lightly and uniformly to infested area. Pay particular attention to: cracks and crevices, service ducts, floors and ceilings, wall voids, around electrical and telephone fittings and equipment, around water and sewer pipes, under and behind cabinets, refrigerators and sinks, around windows and door frames, along baseboards, in attics and crawl spaces. The amount to be applied will vary with the site but should usually be in the range of 2-3 grams of DeltaDust per square yard (or 0.5 lbs per 1000 square feet).

Proper Dusting Tips:
* When applying, the duster should be filled only halfway - 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 overapplication of the product and messy spills.
* Between each squeeze, the duster should be shaken slightly to get dust floating inside the unit.
* 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.
* 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. Also, always keep the screen inside the duster in place as this is designed to help maintain a fine dust consistency.
* When treating around electrical outlets, use dusters fitted with plastic or fiberglass spouts, or place a small section of rubber hose or plastic tubing over the metal tip to avoid contacting electrical wires. These tubes will also enable you to reach around corners and beneath cabinet voids that would otherwise be impossible to treat.
* 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.
* Do not apply dust to baseboards.
* Apply dust carefully and judiciously so it does not travel to areas where it might represent a hazard. Prevent food contamination by not applying dust to where it could filter down onto food or food areas after it is applied. Also, be aware of any air currents that could transfer dust to containers or other objects, leading to food contamination.
* If the applicator is to apply any kind of dust for extended periods of time, he or she should wear a respirator approved by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
* When using high-volume or high-pressure equipment to apply dust in attics or sub-floor crawl spaces, wear a NIOSH-approved respirator. Also, shut off fans, air conditioners, and hot-air heating equipment if necessary. If the dust is combustible, put out all flames and pilot lights, and shut down all spark-producing equipment in the treated area to avoid explosions.
* In general, do not place the tip of the duster in a moist location or allow the duster to sit in moist environments as it will absorb water and become clogged. Clogged dusters can be cleaned by scraping out the spout with a piece of stiff wire.
* Always follow the label when using DeltaDust.

    5 of 5 Stars  Worked GREAT!
    By Jennifer on September 28, 2008

    The siding on my home is red cedar and apparently it is a favorite treat for CARPENTER BEES. They were making terrible holes in the siding like perfectly round bullet holes, and then the woodpeckers would come along and peck at the wood making long channels so they could reach the carpenter bees behind the wood. It was a mess. My painters filled the wood with BONDO and caulk and wood filler...but that did not stop the bees. Over night they bored right through ALL of the products and the fresh paint. I called three exterminators but everyone told me they would spray and I would have to pay again and again in a few months because you could not kill them with just one spray. I BEG TO DIFFER!  I found Delta Dust and I puffed it into the fresh new active holes that the bees made after painting. Within 24 hours I picked up over thirty dead bees on the ground around my house (I have small dogs and I did not want them eating dead poisoned bees). By 48 hours the count had risen to over SIXTY dead bees... and there are NONE flying around the holes, or siding any more! DELTA DUST IS A MUST for carpenter bees. It worked GREAT!!!!

    5 of 5 Stars  Amazing!
    By Rhonda on June 23, 2006

    We have ordered Delta Dust in the past to control Brown Recluse Spiders. It is amazing! We had our house sprayed for several years, twice a year, and we would still have Brown Recluse Spiders. I found your website and ordered Delta Dust from you, and our Brown Recluse Problem has been cut in half. We continue to apply the Delta Dust and see great results. Thank You!! P.S. We use it as a perimeter treatment and also in wall voids, in the attic space and under the house. I am very thankful for your product as we were killing approximately 5 spiders a week before we used the Delta Dust. I still find them now and then, especially when the dust has been washed away outside.

    5 of 5 Stars  This stuff saved my sanity and my marriage!
    By A in San Diego, CA. on June 23, 2011

    My husband picked up bed bugs in a four star hotel while away for work in the UK. We know that's where he got them because he'd seen one inside his suitcase the day he returned and he was asking me if I knew what it was.  I didn't and we just thought it was "a bug" not realizing that a within a week we'd both be covered all over our abdomens and arms with the nasty bed beg bites.  We vacuumed, cleaned, tossed bedding, dry cleaned etc but they kept coming back.  Until I did my research and discovered Drione dust.  Follow the instructions to a T and you'll succeed in eradicating those evil, disgusting pests. We also did the "Vasoline" around the feet of our bed which helps keep them from climbing up the bed from other areas of the home.  It was HELL. HELL!!  But we beat them. We also bought the air tight mattress and box spring protectors.  They work!  It's all good, it all helps.  Good luck!

    5 of 5 Stars  Amazing againsts stink bugs!!
    By Marilyn on March 28, 2008

    You have probably saved my home. I have an infestation (almost overnight) of STINKBUGS. Very difficult to get rid of. Got the Delta Dust - amazing - within just a few day they were gone . It states the product last for 6 months but it hasn't been that long, however just having relief from the constant pest is great.  I must say I did not have much luck with the duster - difficult to spray. Ended up using a turkey baster, sorry guys. But I really encourage any one with a problem with Stink bugs to get this and get it FAST!

    5 of 5 Stars  Great results!
    By Carrie on January 13, 2007

    I use a hand duster to puff Delta Dust into wall voids by inserting the duster underneath my baseboards. It will kill whatever is living inside the walls or travelling along the perimeters of the room. Also used Suspend SC (liquid version of Deltamethrin) with a gallon sprayer on top of the dust for an added punch-- this duo of Delta Dust and Suspend SC has given me great results in getting rid of earwigs, spiders, ants, and fleas.

  • 5 of 5 Stars  Works on Carpenter Ants
    By Warren in Heath, TX on July 10, 2015

    I used this powder in a Long Shot Puffer and dusted an area where I found evidence of carpenter ants. I had to drill three holes to access their location but once dusted there has been no further evidence of activity. I also used on yellow jackets starting a nest inside a wall and dusted some ant trails outside of the house all with good results.

    By Mike in Virginia Beach, VA on July 4, 2015

    Bought this product to eliminate a Yellow Jacket nest in and around my back yard deck and siding. Used the product at night and by next morning all signs of Yellow Jackets were gone. Bonus news, all the ants crawling around on the deck and table are now absent too. Great product, works fast and effective. Recommended it to my Sister for her Yellow Jacket problem.

    5 of 5 Stars  WORKS !!!
    By RM in Nashville Tn on April 7, 2015

    This is our 2nd purchase to combat Brown Recluse spiders. We put small holes in hidden places in our walls. Twice a year we dust with the professional bulb duster we bought from Do My Own. Delta Dust works! Along with caulking cracks etc. and traps we have just about rid ourselves of these spiders. They are a natural outside pest and they will always be around, but we don't have to live with them as long as we have Delta Dust!!!

May 4, 2010 Daniel asked:

QDoes Delta Dust kill carpenter bees immediately?
Does Delta Dust kill carpenter bees immediately? I drenched two of them today and they both flew off. One was boring a nest and the other was actually in a nest. I believe one actually survived and came back to its nest. Thanks.

ADelta Dust will not kill on contact.  In fact, no product will kill a bee or other insect immediately other than Wasp Freeze or a pyrethrin aerosol.  The bees that you covered with Delta Dust will die, but not until the bees ingest the dust.  When bees walk through a hole or land on a surface that you dusted, they pick up the dust on their bodies.  Later, when they groom themselves as most insects do, they will ingest the small dust particles and die soon after.  All dust products work better the less you apply.  You should only apply a very thin light dusting of the material.  Bees and other insects have thousands of microscopic hairs on their bodies and will pick up the dust quite easily.  A pile of dust in one place will look like a mountain to a small insect and they will walk around it instead of through it.

September 2, 2009 Barbara asked:

QIs Delta Dust safe for having pets in the house such as parrots?

AYes, Delta Dust is very safe to use indoors around pets and children. You should keep children and pets out of the room while you are applying the product, and then it is ok to allow them to come back in once you are done.  Of course, you want to use common sense and not dust out in the open or inside the parrots cage, but if you apply Delta Dust into the areas specified on the product label, (cracks and crevices, under appliances, and inside wall voids) there should be no issues.

July 26, 2011 Leah asked:

QHow quickly does the Delta dust kill spiders?
I have brown recluses I have dusted under furniture and behind appliances.

AHow quickly the Delta dust will kill a spider is dependant on how much dust the spider picks up on its body and the size of the spider.  Typically dust can kill a spider in as little as an hour or as long as 24 hours or more depending on these factors.

July 27, 2011 Karen asked:

QWhat is the difference between Delta dust and Drione dust? I want to kill brown recluse spiders.
Which one do you think would be better?

AThe main difference in these two products are the active ingredients. Delta dust contains the synthetic pyrethoid deltamethrin while Drione dust contains the natural ingredient pyrethrins. Both will do a fantastic job eliminating almost any insect including spiders, though you should note that dust insecticides can take several days to actually kill the insect. Delta dust does have one advantage over Drione dust, Delta dust is the only waterproof dust on the market and it will still be effective even if it gets wet.

QI had Delta Dust puffed into my attic, how safe is it, and can I go into the attic?

ADelta Dust is a very safe product and only strong enough to kill small insects.  If the Delta Dust has already been applied and settled, it should be perfectly safe to re-enter the attic space.

July 13, 2015 Laura from Hempstead, Tx asked:

QHow long does it take for Honey Bees to die once delta dust is applied?
We have a honey bee hive in shingles and roof edge. We sprayed delta dust all over. How long does it take for them to die or leave.

A

If you are referring to the whole nest being dusted with Delta Dust, and the hive to die off, it can take days. The bees need to ingest the dust and also carry the dust into the larvae to eradicate the hive. You will also want to be sure that any honeycomb or honey that may be left behind is eliminated. If this sanitation is not done, then more bees may return to the same area, or you could attract a secondary infestation such as hive beetles.

July 13, 2015 Pam from Mcdonough, Ga asked:

QCan Delta Dust be used in kitchen cabinets safely?
I have fire ants in my kitchen cabinets, bathrooms, even in my clothes closet on my hanging clothes. The best treatment for ants outside is Termidor, hands down. It is sort of a liquid bait when used for ants, and any ants that walk over where you spray pick up the Termidor on their bodies and bring the product back to the colony where they spread it around to all other termites, including the queen, and typically within a few days to a week all of the ants will be dead. Termidor is used around your home like any other pest control product and is applied using a one gallon hand pump sprayer. You should re-apply every 3 months for optimum ant control.

A

We do not recommend treating inside the kitchen cabinets with Delta Dust or any insecticide dust as it could contiminate your utensils or food. Chances are that the ants are coming from outside and getting inside the kitchen and other areas.  99% of the time ants are nesting outside and coming inside for food or water.

For inside, labeled to apply indoors only in cracks and crevices and/or inaccessible areas.  These would include the void underneath your cabinets, underneath and behind appliances, inside wall voids, water heater closets, etc.  You would not want to place this bait inside a cabinet with plates and silverware or on any food handling surface.

QDelta Dust residue on clothing & Christmas decorations in attic - is there a health risk?
I had open boxes of clothing and Christmas decorations (wreath & garland) exposed when Delta Dust was sprayed. This was done right over the box and the decorations. I understand that it leaves a residue. How dangerous is this residue?

A Delta Dust is not labeled to be used on clothing or decorations, only along baseboards, wall voids, cracks, and crevices. I would recommend washing and drying you clothes to remove any residual that the delta dust has left behind and to clean the decorations with alcohol is you are planning to use them in the future. Make sure you are wearing protective gear when handling items with checmicals on them.

June 2, 2015 Sarah from Bothell, Wa asked:

QI am worried about possible health concerns after using/cleaning delta dust
Pest control company applied delta dust to a crevice in the kitchen floor but the white stuff was definitely visible. My husband felt it was working so he moved it to a crevice where the wall meets the kitchen counter and you could still see the white stuff. About 2-4 months later, a person from the same company told me to vacuum it off. I did but I did not wear a mask and my husband and my daughter were in the room when I did. I also think they used this Delta Dust in the crawl space/attic. I am very concerned about potential health risks especially because my daughter is 1 year old.

A Simply vacuuming Delta Dust should not pose a health threat to you. We cannot comment on how the exterminator applied the product. Normally, only to cracks crevices and wall voids. Small amounts that you can hardly tell are there. Please contact the manufacturer bayer at 800-331-2867.

May 28, 2015 Mdj from Philadelphia, Pa asked:

QWhich is the most powerful bed bug repellent
I know about the options for non-repellent treatment (like Temprid SC, Phantom, etc) but I really need a repellent solution: I'm only getting bed bugs from one source - through the wall of a neighboring house (the person who lives there is very old and doesn't want to combat the bed bugs!). So I want to spray a repellent along that side of my house.

A We do not carry any products that will repel bed bugs. If you share an adjoining wall with someone who has bed bugs, we would recommend using a dust, such as Delta Dust, in the wall void if you can put anything under the baseboards. This is a long term treatment for bed bugs, as well as various other pests as well. You will do a thin layer on the floor so that the bed bugs walk through it and dry out. This is not instant and should be done every seven months. This could be a possible solution so that they do not keep coming into your unit.
