    5 of 5 Stars  Drione works!!
    By None on July 23, 2008

    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 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

    5 of 5 Stars  Excellent
    By Tina in Edison, NJ on August 14, 2010

    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.

    5 of 5 Stars  Incredibly effective!
    By Mark on April 17, 2007

    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.

    By Donna on August 21, 2006

    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!!

  • 5 of 5 Stars  Worth Every Penny!
    By Travis in Ohio on October 28, 2015

    I purchased drione dust to combat a yellow jacket nest in a floor void. First, i tried using your typical spray can aerosols to no avail. After much frustration, i turned to the internet for help and came across this product and figured i'd give it a shot. Best decision i ever made and worth every penny! With just one application i wiped out the entire colony in 24 hours. The next day i checked the area for activity and all i found were dead, dust covered yellow jackets all over the ground. I will be purchasing the 7lb pail in the near future to dust my attic and the remaining floor joist voids to prevent this from happening next summer.

  • 3 of 5 Stars  Dusted some yellow jackets
    By JJ in Westport, CT on September 14, 2015

    We had a yellow jacket hive nest within our outside wall recently. Tried spraying many time without success. Researched other methods and decided to try Drione Dust. Waited until nightfall then dressed in a bee-proof outfit to do battle. I assumed I could apply the dust simply by squeezing the bottle since it has a pointed applicator. That would probably work with gravity if you were aiming downwards. I was aiming up. If you use Drione Dust, which seemed to work pretty well (I also sprayed since I was so close to the bee opening), I recommend you also get an applicator which allows applications in cracks and crevices. Bees are gone. I have left over so I will definately use again if needed.

    Used this to get rid of some hornet nests inside walls. Applied it using a Bellow Duster late in the evening and next day no more hornets. There's enough product for 50+ applications. Definitely worth it since it will cost you a couple hundred for a professional.

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.

November 12, 2010 Laure asked:

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.

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?

ADrione dust is not waterproof. The only dust that is waterproof is Delta Dust. Delta is also labeled to kill most of the same insects as the Drione dust.

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.

September 29, 2015 Cheryl from Aurora asked:

QIs Drione Dust safe around cats that are more sensitive to pyrethrins?


Drione Dust does have pyrethrin as one of its active ingredients. When applying any insecticide, you should take great care and concern to not apply it within reach of pets or children. Dust in particular should be applied in areas where it would not be accessible to your cat but also in areas where the dust will remain undisturbed such as behind or underneath household appliances, inside wall voids, and where plumbing enters the home such as underneath kitchen and bathroom sinks.

QCan I use Drione Dust outside in ground cover near a pond to treat for wasps?
I have a big bee/wasp nest near my pond on rocky terrain surrounded by ivy and ground cover. I can't remove the rocks without getting stung. I have tried but can't find the nest. Can I apply Drione dust to the ivy, rocks, and soil area? I have a newborn and two dogs and was wondering how safe this may be. If Drione is not recommended, what do you suggest? Also, can you suggest equipment and clothing I will need to do this safely? Thank you!


Drione Dust would only really work if you were to dust directly into the nest, but it can take longer for this treatment to work. Even if you dust inside the rocky cover you risk the fact that may not come in contact with the product. We highly recommend that you take a look at our "How to get rid of Wasps" article. It is better to treat with an insecticide that can give you a better and longer residual, so we would recommend our Wasp and Hornet Control Kit and our Complete Professional Bee Suit for safety.

QLarge Roaches in attic what to use?
Large roaches about 1" in length show up in my home's attic and sometimes on the second floor in various rooms. I have recently minimized any water from the attic Air Conditioning unit's condensation by wrapping pipes with insulation. My home is located in Los Angeles, CA, where summers result in very hot attic temperatures. What else can I do, and what is the best product to kill these large roaches?


Sounds like you are off to a great start! If you are having a problem with roaches (water bugs), you should look at treating more than just the attic, especially since the roaches are coming in from the outside. We would highly suggest you look at getting one of our Roach Control Kits for indoor and home perimeter use, and a granular insecticide for long term control in the yard around the home to cut down on the numbers in your area. The Roach Kits provide you with all the products you need to effectively and efficiently get rid of the infestation at its source rather than just where you see them, and by purchasing them in our kit rather than separately you save money as we have discounted these items. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

QWill Drione Dust work on Dust Mites?
I have an infestation of dust mites in a building I have recently moved into. I am constantly cleaning to try and limit the numbers but still find them daily. I have tile floor and wood base boards where they seem to be hiding and coming from. Is this product suggested for these creatures? If so how should I go about using it?


Drione Dust is not labeled for dust mites. I would recommend switching to a product such as bedlam that is labeled for dust mites.


Dust mite allergies can cause sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, respiratory issues, eczema, and most severely, asthma. While you won’t find dust mite bites on your family members, exposure to dust mites in the first year of life can cause a lifelong allergy to this pest, so learning how to kill dust mites is important for your family’s health. A multi-step approach to dust mites treatment is the best course of action to rid your home and prevent dust mite accumulation.

  • Reducing humidity: Using a dehumidifier or air conditioner to reduce the humidity to at or below 50 percent humidity in the air and reducing the air temperature will slow and eventually impede the life cycle of dust mites, since the lower humidity makes it difficult for the mites to absorb water in the air. This is a very important step in getting rid of these pests.
  • Vacuuming: If possible, use a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arresting) filter compatible vacuum to trap the microscopic mites and particulates. Dust commonly contains other allergens, including pet dander, cigarette ash, mold spores, pollen, and other insect feces, so vacuuming can help alleviate many symptoms of allergies. 
  • Bedding maintenance: Switching out woolen or feather bedding for synthetic materials, as well as replacing traditional stuffed animals with washable ones, can lessen the accumulation of mites. Washing all bedding at hot temperatures once a week, or freezing non-washables overnight, can kill the existing dust mites. Using allergen-impermeable dust mite covers for mattresses or pillowcases can help to prevent more mites to live in your bedding once you have gotten rid of them. Cleaning mattresses and box springs is also important, and deep cleaning with a steam cleaner can achieve this. 
  • Insecticides: Some insecticides can be used as spot treatments for killing dust mites (and other pests) on contact and when used in conjunction with proper cleaning, a good dust mite spray can be a powerful tool against dust mites.

QDifference between Drione Dust and Suspend SC


There are many difference between Drione Dust and Suspend SC. Suspend SC is a concentrate that is mixed with water. It can be used indoors around the baseboards, cracks and crevices and/or outdoors around the perimeter of the home. It can be also be broadcast across your lawn. The residual indoors is about 90 days. The residual outdoors is about 30 days.

Drione Dust is an odorless insecticide dust. It is mainly used inside the wall voids to protect from various pests. It is effective for up to six months if left undisturbed. When applying Drione dust, here are some tips:

* Within food areas, application of DRIONE® is limited to crack and crevice treatment only.
* Care should be taken to avoid depositing the product onto exposed surfaces or introducing the material into the air. Avoid contamination of food or food processing surfaces.
* For applications in non-food areas, apply a continuous visible film where insects hide:
- Underneath and behind stairs, refrigerators and appliances
- On, around, and behind moldings, shelving, baseboards, pipe openings, cracks and crevices
* For severe infestations, apply Drione behind cabinets and walls, in crawl spaces and attics.

A We recommend using a liquid insecticide along baseboards, cracks and crevices and behind appliances such as Alpine WSG. This is a wettable granular that you mix in a 1 gallon pump sprayer. Alpine WSG is labled as reduce risk and meant to be used in sensitive conditions but will still give great results. Inside wall voids, applying Dione Dust with a bellow hand duster will give you a quick kill and last for up to 6 months in undisturbed areas.

QOn killing Brown Recluyse...
I want to kill brown recluyse in my home. They are worse upstairs, I wonder if they are in the attic. I've read your recommendations about the Cyper spider kit. But, I like the idea of using Pyrethrin over synthetics. Many of your replies on other questions say that since spiders don't lick their feet the Drione dust doesn't work as well as the Cyper. So, can you tell me how the Cyper works differently than the Drione?


Since Brown Recluse spiders are known for hiding in cracks, crevices and hard to reach areas, using Drione or Tempo 1% Dust inside wall voids does provide great control and preventative measures. Treating with Cyper WP will affect the spider directly and also help get ride of the insects that the spiders feed on. Applying Cyper WP indoors and outdoors is recommended. Indoors, spray around all baseboards, door frames, window frames, under appliances, in closets and storage rooms and in areas where utilities enter into the structure. Outdoors you should spray around the bottom of the foundation, on the ground adjacent to the foundation, door frames, window frames and places where the utilities enter into the structure.

Brown recluse spiders are frequently found in and around boxes stored in closets and attics. Boxes in such places should be taped shut to eliminate potential nesting sites. Unnecessary clutter should be eliminated, spider webs removed from interior and exterior areas, and a thorough vacuuming should be undertaken around, under, and behind furniture.
