    5 of 5 stars  Drione works!!
    By None on 07/23/2008

    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 08/14/2010

    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 04/17/2007

    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 08/21/2006

    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!!

    By John in Avon, IN on 10/06/2017

    After my wife was stung by one of the ground nesting yellow jackets, I'd had enough. We had tried foam wasp spray previously, but some were back within a couple of days. After receiving the Drione Dust, with my wife at the bulb duster, she insisted, we have not had a problem. Weeks later and still no more. It's expensive, but it works, which is the important part!

    By Joe in ny on 09/29/2017

    This works really well on ground nesting bees. I've used this about 6 times on them and each time it was a one time thing and nest was gone. I took away a star because it requires to you go right up to their hole unless you buy an expensive long range duster. Also, its not an immediate kill. you dust the nest and it works over a day. so you better dust and high tail it out of there.

  • 5 of 5 stars  This drione dust works very well on cicada killer wasps.
    By Eric in Riverside, Rhode Island on 08/13/2017

    This dust works very well. You will need to do it at dusk. You will also need to keep on top of the cicada killer holes to ensure new ones are not being dug out by the cicadas. Even though your areas are free from cicadas they come and dig from other areas that are not treated. I recommend this product.

    1 of 5 stars  Not happy
    By Sam in Los Angeles, CA on 07/26/2017

    I have a vehicle that got infested. Since my father doesn't clean or take care of it. I dusted the vehicle. Still had roaches. I literally poured a clump of Drione on a roach and it waved and walked away like I sprinkled him with fairy dust. The vehicle still has the infestation. I tried a fogger too. And then residual. It's like these roaches fought in 'nam! It did kill some but after a few weeks I seen babies crawling around. I've fogged the vehicle 4 times and sprayed residual twice. No avail So the roaches made their way into my home. I sprayed dust every where. In the cracks and crevices behind the fridge and all along the hallways and near the trash. It's like they started skiing in their winter wonderland. I see the little babies having snow days in my kitchen it's so annoying. I've bombed the house twice with a fogger and followed up with dusting. It's cool for about two weeks but then these lil terds came back. I'm going to try a stronger residual like zenprox or something cuz this dust doesn't work. At all... and now we have fleas. Ugh...

  • 5 of 5 stars  No more buzz !!
    By Dmo in Long Island New York on 07/22/2017

    At the recommendation of a coworker I tried this product. This year a second appearance of yellow jackets in my vinyl siding, very aggressive pests! Loaded up my bulb duster with Drione and went to work 5:30 am but the bees were already in full swarm. They surely dislike this stuff, as if the outside bees were communicating to the inside bees. Then a mass exodus from the site. Very rewarding experience as I've been struggling with this problem for two weeks. Thought I was early to recognize the nest, but once you see activity it's kind of too late. Nice product to have on hand, I no longer feel powerless against these relentless pests. Thanks very much DMO!

    We had an infestation of carpenter bees so I purchased the Drione along with the duster bulb from DoMyOwn and these products have basically stopped the bees in their tracks. We waited until dusk when the bees returned into the holes they drilled, then simply puffed the Drione into the holes and the bees appeared covered with dust and they were done. Awesome stuff!

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 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.

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.

QWill Drione Dust kill ticks that are hiding in an open hole in my walls, and cracks and crevices?
I wanted to try and eliminate them myself because the exterminator quoted me $625. How often should I apply? I have also bought Bifen I/T, Pivot IGR, and Permethrin. I have treated my dogs with Bravecto. And when applying the dust, should I first apply the liquid insecticide first, then let it dry, and then apply the dust? Would Delta Dust be just as effective as Drione? How often should I retreat to break the life cycle?


Drione Dust is labeled to treat for ticks. Yes, you would want to use the Bifen IT indoors around the baseboards and cracks and crevices, and then apply the dust. Delta Dust is also labeled for ticks, and is waterproof as well, so if you are using both that might be a better option for your application. You would wat to use the Permethrin product you have for an outdoor application as it is an oil based formulation and could stain some areas. You would want to treat anywhere your dogs go in your yard. We recommend paying special attention to your entrances to your home so that†you can get a barrier there.

QCan I use Drione Dust as often as I want and would it still work?

Drione Dust should only be applied to cracks and crevices, voids and other listed areas on the product label when it has been removed or once every 6†months (if left undisturbed). We do NOT suggest treating the appliances with the product. For more information on a successful treatment program, please review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Roaches.

QHow quickly does Drione kill bees?
I have several honey bee queens going into several small holes around the house that were made long ago by termite extermiators. I never saw this happen before. I have some Drione purchased 1 1/2 years ago. I used duster to apply Drione in some of the holes that I have seen honey bees going into. I have seen one bee going in and out several times over an hour or so while I patiently watched apparently unaffected by the dust. I had expected a quicker result. I say they are queens because, except for a few that seem to have settled on a hole, they appear to be examining potential places to call home. They are fuzzy and have some brown or orange color.


Drione Dust can take time to kill an insect. †The bees that have picked up the†Drione Dust from the treated holes 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. †So it can take a few hours up to 24 or so to kill them.

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.
