    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!!

    By John in Chester, VA on June 12, 2015

    I have a cedar log home. The carpenter bees were destroying it. One application of Drione with a bellows duster into the holes got rid of all the flying bees. Will most likely have to apply again when the eggs hatch and grow into bees. This works very fast.

    The Carpenter bees started coming out this weekend and in preparation I had dusted the holes a few weeks ago. What a difference! I noticed dead bees all over as the dust was more than they could handle. I am impressed so far. We'll see how this keeps up.

    5 of 5 Stars  Drione Dust
    By Linda in WV on October 26, 2014
    Verified Purchase

    I ordered this for my sister who lives in a high-rise. The apt. manger keeps fighting bed bugs from her apt. and many others. The spray they were using was not helping I ordered this for her after reading about it and she put it down everywhere, under the bed, around baseboards literally everywhere in the apt. Two times a day she would sweep up the dust from under her bed and there would be 3-5 dead bed bugs. She did find that a chair in the living room was where they were nesting and she threw it away and just kept the dust down religiously and she would find them dead everywhere so this does work. She is now bedbug free. However, since she lives where this can be an ongoing problem she is going to keep the dust down all the time around the baseboards and around her door.

    As advertised...applied Drione dust at night, the next day activity around the Yellow Jacket nest had stopped. No more Yellow Jackets...Hooray!! BTW...pest control company quoted $150. Self application saved more than $100.00. I like that.

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.

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.

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.

treat main floor area with bait and igr, treating electrical boxes with insecticide drops as in cabinets. can not use aerosol due to allergies, what else can be done for inside walls.

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.

October 4, 2014 Charla from Paola asked:

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.

September 18, 2014 Catherine from Kansas asked:

QI would like to use Drione Dust in my attic. However, I have an attic or "whole house" fan. Can it be used there? If so, how far from the fan.

A Drione Dust should not be broadcast over the entire attic. Instead you should concentrate on dusting the cracks, crevices and voids and other areas where these insects harbor. If you have vents that blow air through the attic and into the home caution should be used to take care the dust is not blown through the vents.

August 12, 2014 Stephen from Smithville Tn asked:

QI used Drione Dust to get rid of bedbugs in my apartment complex. They seem to be making a comeback. Help

A First, using powders or dusts alone will not effectively get rid of a bedbug infestation. Insecticide dusts (such as Drione) and powders take about a week to actually kill insects and in that time the bedbugs can still bite and reproduce. We offer bedbug kits that contain all of the different products you need to eliminate bedbugs and retreatments should be done every 7-10 days until you do not receive a bite for 30 days. Most dusts only need to be applied once every few months and unless you vacuumed. We also highly recommend using mattress and boxspring encasements to help eliminate bedbug infestations. These bedbug proof covers will trap existing bedbugs and eliminate hiding places and make inspections easier.

Does Drione come in a liquid? We think we have ant nests.


Drione Dust does not come in a liquid formulation. It should be applied using a duster. According to the manufacturer's MSDS, Drione has a very mild, tea-like odor. For more information on treating for ants, please click on the links below. Please let us know if you have any questions.

I had bees entering an opening by my basement window at the end of last summer. I am afraid that they have a nest in my wall and want to kill them before they become active this spring. Can I apply Drione dust before I see any activity this spring?

A Drione Dust can be applied to voids and nest entry ways that had previous activity or current activity as the dust will last. You should apply using a dust applicator and when the bees are less active (at night or very early in the morning). Dusting entry points also helps with the treatment of other insects too.

September 3, 2013 Dee from Waldorf asked:

QDoes Drione Dust work well for killing fleas on concrete floors?
I have a infestation of fleas and springtails in my basement. The basement is unfinished so there is nothing but cement floors and insulation on walls.

A Drione is not labeled to be broadcast over floors so we would not recommend it for this use. If the floorplan is wide open and there are no obstructions, we would instead recommend Precor Fogger Plus for this area. The Permethrin in Precor® Plus Fogger immediately kills adult fleas, while Precor IGR prevents pre-adult fleas from creating new infestations of breeding, biting adults.
