I spoke with Mike about a horrible problem I had. BEDBUGS! We got them on our travels from another state. Mike realized right away that I had a problem and the product arrived FAST! I rid my whole house of this menace in less than 2 weeks. Drione Dust is awesome. I have recommended this site to everyone who hate bugs as much as I do. Unfortunately, I pitched my 1920's wooden sleigh bed before I found this site. Drione works and kills within 24 hours.

I live in an apartment and the management decided it was time to get the bed bugs treated. We were told the exterminators would come once a week for 3 weeks and after that we should have no more issues with bed bugs. After almost three weeks, we still saw no difference and were suffering from sleepless nights. A friend suggested Drione dust and I decided to give it a try since i was very disappointed with the on-going treatment. Drione dust proved to be magic and with just one treatment that I left on for 42 hours, I am happy to say 'Adios bed-bugs'. I strongly recommend this product for all those folks suffering. You'll need the Bellow hand duster with it as well.

I had a huge problem with boring bees (had already killed 27 with a squash racket). I applied the drione dust to one of the many holes in my log house and then I started finding dead boring bees around my house. Now after 2 months I have yet to see any new holes or bees. Thank You

Can't say enough good things about Drione Dust. It's been incredibly effective for me. I've cleaned out 3 or 4 yellow jacket nests with it. They were all within walls and cracks, so injecting it into the cracks at night was all it took -- just one application. I've also taken down large spiders with it, and just recently knocked out a nest of carpenter ants. I don't know how it works, but I don't care. Highly suggest purchasing the applicator/injector. Much easier to aim the stuff.

This is the second time we have a had a hornets nest in the last two years. The first time we paid a "pro" to come and do the job for us, who had to come back a second time to reapply. This time we tackled the problem ourselves (along with DMOPC) and there was not a single hornet coming in or out the next morning, thanks to Drione Dust. Great great stuff at 1/2 the cost. Thanks!!

drione dust drops 'em in their tracks!
By Patty in Mitchellville, MD on 04/28/2013
I have a house that spiders, wasps and stink bugs love. That would be a problem if it weren't for drione dust. It is the greatest agent I've ever used, and before I found it, I had tried everything. The pyrethrum stops the most ambitious bugs in their tracks, whether they're crawling, flying, or just hanging around. I would recommend it to anyone who thinks they have a pest problem that can't be gotten rid of. This stuff definitely works!

This is a great item for roaches and ants, I clean my kitchen and use some of this dust around the edges of my kitchen floor and behind my refrigerator and stove and keeps it roach free. I also used it on my window seals and kills all the flies that are in the house. I clean it once a month and find dead flies, ants, and other insects from outside.

Getting the job done!
By Walt in Texas on 07/18/2011
Using the duster I also purchased, I treating both homes using the suggestions, especially by drilling small holes under the kick board at the kitchen and bathroom sinks. The very next day, we saw four dead cockroaches, then a few more the following week. We haven't seen one since. I do believe we have found something that meets the cockroaches match!

This product worked great! Having tried various liquid prodcucts to control brown recluse spiders with little results, I searched for a solution on the internet. Time and time again blogs and articles refer to "Drione Dust" (often mispelled by the way). I then visited my local pest control store who stated, "this product is illegal and didn't work as good as their product which could be applied for $300.00). What a pile! I am a liscened turf specialist with a fairly good knowledge of pestides. I would not recommend this product if it wasn't up to par. Hats off to the sales rep, she was very helpful.

My neighbor had bed bugs bad for three months before he told the owner, I had figured he had them cause all his clothes were on the back porch, soon I started getting bites, me and my children. So I ordered the Drione dust and Bedlam for back up then rented a steamer and me and my family have been fine. I lace all the walls, cracks, and crevices with the dust. Soon I started seeing dead bed bugs as I swept. I know this products works and repels them. The bed bugs are under control in my place. Cons of this product is it dissolves quickly when water touches it.

So Nice To Buy A Product That Works As Advertised
By Eric in Ruffs Dale, PA on 06/07/2010
I was constantly being pestered by Carpenter Bees. I sent for the Drione Dust and I was pleasantly surprised this product truly worked as advertised. No more bees! They have totally vanished. I can now go on my back porch and enjoy myself. I have been telling a lot of people (even perfect strangers) how good this product is and how I was so pleased to solve my Carpenter Bee problem. I even told a Vendor at Lowe's (who was supplying them with a competing product) about how good it was. Thanks, thanks, thanks!!

The carpenter bee hole I was trying to treat was on the bottom of the rafter, meaning I was trying to spray the dust UP. It didn't seem to be going so well, so I just waited until the little fellows flew close and I puffed them with the dust. About the time I was thinking, "I'd feel better if I saw one die" one of them fell to the ground. Then another. Then number three. By the end of the evening there were 6 or 7 dead bees on the patio waiting to be swept up.

Carpenter Bee control
By John in Pigeon Forge, TN on 05/09/2010
Used Drione in the nesting sites of our cabin. It took about 10 seconds before you could hear the activity in the nest and the female was out of there in less than 30 seconds. No return! Great stuff!! Owning a cabin means you have a constant fight on your hands with this type of insect and from what I have seen so far, I have the upper hand. A dust stick makes the job a cinch.

First of all, I would like to say that the service through this site was excellent. Mike was very friendly and helpful on the phone and the product arrived in a prompt and professional manner. Very refreshing in this day and age of lousy customer service! Secondly, the Drione dust worked wonders on my yellow jacket problem. I had a good-sized nest behind the bird blocks in my house eaves and had no way to get to it with a conventional spray. I ordered the Drione and a small bellows applicator and went to work one evening when the little yellow jackets were snuggled up in their hideout. They sure didn't like it and within two days the nest was dead calm. No sign of any activity since....R.I.P.

Ask a Question
QIs Drione Dust safe around people and pets?
I have a newborn and two dogs. If we were to buy Drione Dust and treat our house for ticks, can I have the newborn and dogs in the house while treating? If not, how long until we can go back into the house? Also, is it safe to be in the house after treatment with a newborn and two dogs?
ADrione Dust is a very safe product and also very effective. Like any product. you need to make sure you apply it as directed and read all instructions for it to work properly on insects and be safe for your family. Drione Dust is meant to be applied in cracks and crevices, underneath appliances and inside wall voids. If you apply it correctly and in these types of areas, it will not be accessible for your pets and children to come in contact with but it will be in the places that bugs like to hide. You do not have to remove the pets and children while you are treating, but it would be a good idea to have them in a different room while you are applying the dust. After 30 minutes have passed after you have applied the product, it is perfectly safe for them to be back in the room that you treated.
QWhat is the shelf life of Drione dust?
ADrione Dust will remain effective as long as it stays dry. You should keep the lid on at all times and keep it away from moisture. We have customers that have had Drione Dust for over 5 years and it is still effective.
QWhat's the difference between bedbug spray and dust?
ASprays come either in a can or a concentrate that you mix with water. Sprays need to be re-applied every 7-10 days in most situations. Dusts need to be applied with a hand duster and most last for around 6 months. When you are dealing with bedbugs, it is important that you use both a dust and a spray. The reasoning behind this is that while dusts may last a long time, they also take a long time to kill the bedbug(time that the bedbug will still be able to breed), bite and lay eggs. Sprays offer a faster kill, but do not last very long. Also, dusts must only be applied to areas that will later be inaccessible such as wall voids, under furniture, under carpets, etc. Many of the bedbug sprays can be applied to the mattress, box spring, couch and other areas that are a bit more sensitive. Professional standards require the use of both dusts and sprays. We recommend purchasing one of our bedbug kits as they come with all of the insecticide products you need to do a proper treatment.
QWhat's the difference between Delta Dust and Drione Dust?
Besides being waterproof, what is the difference between Drione Dust and Delta Dust?
AThe only real difference is that they are different active ingredients. Delta Dust has an active ingredient of Deltamethrin, and Drione Dust is a 1% natural pyrethrin. Both are very effective and our most popular dust products that we sell. They just kill the insect in different ways. Either is a great choice.
QIs Drione Dust water proof?
If I were to dust the perimeter of my house and yard, would it stand up to water? And if not, what would you recommend?

QWhat is the best way to irradicate brown recluse spiders using Drione Dust?
AYou would want to dust behind and underneath furniture, appliances, garage perimeter and inside wall voids. All dusts pretty much work the same way and all are OK on spiders. But the inherent problem is that spiders are hard to kill because they do not groom themselves. Unlike other insects that walk over dust, get it on their legs, and then groom themselves, spiders do not groom their legs and therefore do not ingest the dust as easily. For this reason, glue boards and sprays are typically used more often. We have a spider kit that is very popular for brown recluse spiders and all spiders in general that we would recommend.

QCan I safely use Drione dust on a mattress? Under the sofa?
I bought Drione dust and it says the mattress should be dusted to treat bedbugs but it also says people shouldn't touch it? In a related question, can I apply the dust to the underside of my sofa?
AYou can safely apply Drione dust to areas that are listed on the Drione product label. When using on a mattress stick to the tufts, folds, and edges of the mattress and then put the mattress pad and sheets back on the mattress so you do not directly contact treated areas. You can also safely dust the underside of your sofa as that is an area that will not be readily accessible to skin contact.
QI purchased Drione Dust in 1999. It still seems to work. How affective is it at this age?
AThe manufacturer recommends that you use Drione Dust within 3 years of the date of purchase to ensure maximum efficacy. That being said, Drione does contain Amorphous Silica Gel which is a desiccant that can last indefinitely.
QWhat if kids come in contact with Drione dust? Are there any risks?
AApplications of Drione dust should be limited to areas that will inaccessible to children such as cracks and crevices. If a child does come into contact with the dust, they should wash up immediately with plenty of soap and water. According to the MSDS, Drione dust does not cause skin irritation but like most products could cause issues if it is ingested.
QHow quickly can Drione Dust 'cake up' due to atmospheric moisture if it never directly touches water?
Will caked up Drione dust remain effective? I have a feeling that Drione dust will be more effective against bedbugs than Delta dust, but I am worried about moisture causing it to become ineffective.
AYour question is really difficult to answer accurately. It will really depend on how much moisture is in the environment where the dust is applied. Drione dust only works if it is dry. Drione dust tends to work just fine without caking in a normal home environment. Both Delta Dust and Drione dust seem to work very well for bedbugs and both take about 3-5 days to kill insects.
QHow do you apply Drione Dust for a flea infestation in my home?
ADrione dust alone will not be able to get rid of your flea infestation because it is not labeled to be used in many key areas. According to the Drione product label," Apply a continuous visible film underneath and behind stairs, refrigerators and appliances. Treat on, around and behind moldings, shelving, baseboards, pipe openings, cracks, crevices, and other areas where insects hide. For severe infestations, apply Drione behind cabinets and walls, in crawl spaces and attics at the rate of 16 ounces per 1000 square feet of surface area." For complete flea control, you should use products that are labeled to be used over carpets, rugs and on animal resting areas. We recommend using Ultracide in combination with Flea Stoppers for an effective flea treatment. We have put these products together in an Indoor Flea Kit for your convenience. We also carry an Outdoor/Indoor kit that will treat the fleas inside and outside. Be sure to vacuum immediately before applying the products and every day for the next two weeks to help stimulate the fleas so they will come into contact with the products that you have applied. A second treatment should be applied 14 days after the first treatment
QWhat is the best time of day to apply Drione dust to the hole where the carpenter bees are?
AYou should treat stinging insects early morning or late evening as these are the times of day that the insects are less active and less likely to sting you.
QI have a swarm of bees (over 2000) that went into a wall through cracks around wall air conditioner.
Will Drione Dust kill the entire nest? How big can it get in a 4 day period?
ABees do reproduce but every colony is different and most would not grow too much in size in 4 days. Treating a colony is actually quite easy if you know where the entry/exit point is. Drione Dust will work great for this, along with a B&G 1150 Bulb Duster. At night after dusk when the bee activity is in the wall for the night, go up to their entry/exit point and place the duster in the hole and puff twice. Then pull the duster out of the hole and dust directly at the hole, coating the entry point. When the bees fly in and out in the morning they will get the dust on their bodies and bring it back into the wall where they are nesting. The bees will pass the dust around and usually within 24 - 48 hours depending on colony size the colony should be dead.
QHow much area does a 1-pound container of Drione Dust cover?
How much area does a 1-pound container of Drione Dust cover? I would be using it for a wasp problem around the sliding glass door.
AThe area that a 1 pound container of Drione Dust covers will depend on a lot of factors. However, the dust goes a very long way. Especially for wasps, you only need to apply 1 or 2 quick puffs in the area where they are entering and exiting. Typically a pound of dust would be enough to treat once every 3 months in all voids of a house and last at least 1 year. One pound should be plenty for your problem and leave plenty left over for future problems.
QIs Drione dust toxic?
I am pregnant and we have bed bugs in our mattress (my cousin gave us her king size mattress) and now we have pests. I want to be able to keep the mattresses if we can get rid of these bugs.
A Drione Dust is a very safe and non-toxic product, but like any other product or cleaning chemical you need to follow the instructions and use as directed. You would want to apply the dust where you would not come into contact with it while sleeping. You would be better off purchasing one of our bed bug proof mattress encasements. Then you would not have to treat the mattress at all, once it was covered and enclosed any bed bugs that were on the mattress would not be able to get off and feed or move around.
