The Bellow Hand Duster features new design enhancements that make it the “Professional’s Choice” when it comes to crack and crevice treatments of fine dust products into small areas. This bellow hand duster features a new bellows and spring that is much easier to compress and use than other similar dusters on the market. In addition, the clean-out rod comes with an o-ring for a tighter seal to prevent dust from escaping out the back of the duster. A 6.5 inch extension makes it easy to treat hard to reach places. The metal extension also features an insulated black tip to prevent a shock hazard when dusting near electrical outlets. To use the duster, fill the rubber container (bellows) half-way full with an insecticide dust product such as Delta Dust or Pyganic Dust. It is also recommended to place a small rock in the duster to help break up the dust and prevent it from clumping. Compressing the bellows will cause dust to escape the metal tip of the duster. Using a duster allows you to inject dust more easily into cracks and crevices or inside wall voids where insects like to hide. We highly recommend purchasing a duster when applying any dust products. Note: This hand duster does not come with an insecticide dust. You will have to purchase the dust separately.

How to Properly Use the Bellow Hand Duster (Video)
Remove black rubber cap from top of the bellows. The duster should be filled only halfway with dust - 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 over application of the product and messy spills.
Between each squeeze, the duster should be shaken slightly to get dust floating inside the duster.
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. In the event that the nozzle becomes clogged, you may unscrew the rod from the rear of the nozzle and insert it into the nozzle to break up any clogs.
- The easiest way (and correct way) to use the duster is upside down (with the bellows facing downward). 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.
- 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.

Well, I have a spider issue in my house, as many others do as well. I have a small studio apartment in California, very old and in an area with a lot of trees. I bought Delta Dust to spray around my house as a preventative. So I've only used this hand duster with that product. I've found it very easy to use, and great for getting into all of those cracks and whatnot around my apartment. It has semi-clogged once, but I just shook it hard and that resolved the issue. I read somewhere to put a couple of rocks in the blower to keep clumps from forming, but I did not have that issue. It may be that since California has such a low humidity level that clumps are not as likely. The blower was very easy to fill, cap, and begin to use immediately. I have seen that as the dust gets low, I have to shake it a bit to settle the contents at the bottom, but it's not a huge problem. So I've had a very positive experience, and I've very glad I got this to distribute the Delta Dust with.

Low cost duster that works well!
By Richard in San Jose, CA on 06/25/2010
I got this to use with Delta Dust in our crawl spaces and have now started using it to blow the dust into cracks between the wood siding too. It works well, just be careful when filling it since the stopper hole is about the same size as the Delta Dust 1lb bottle top.

I was looking for something to apply BT to my cole crops. The Hudson Adjutant tin duster was terrible and cost me almost twice as much! It required constant shaking and lots of muscle power. The bellow hand duster is much easier to use and more accurate. Love it. Thanks!

There are more expensive dusters on the market and I believe the old saying "you get what you pay for". In this case as a home owner and not a professional, I took a chance on the least expensive and am happy with my choice. Follow directions and it will work four stars good.
By Toyia in Detroit on 02/07/2017
I'm not sure if I did something wrong or not but this duster gave me the flux. Each time I puffed it a cloud of smoke came out but not really enough to disperse in one area. A couple times it actually became clogged and nothing came out. I didn't care for it. It felt like a waste of money.
Thank you for your comments! The point of using a hand duster like the bellow hand duster is to prevent over-dusting and to direct the insecticide right into cracks and crevices where it needs to be applied. You should barely be able to see the dust, and really, you should not see any at all when using it because the tip of the duster should be directed into a void, crack, or crevice. To prevent clogging, be sure your duster is completely dry after any cleaning and use a few small pebbles or coins in the duster to prevent clumping. You can also unscrew the rod at the back of the duster and use it to clean the extension rod. Please let us know if you have further questions or concerns!

I have used Do My Own Pest Control for several years with great success but this time I needed to use customer service. They were amazing and quickly took care of my problem. They're great.

I would have struggled using the dust insecticide without this duster. It's a must have.

Bellow hand Duster
By Sandra in Gaston, SC on 09/26/2016
The duster works well and "puffs" out a small amount of powder. It's easy to aim at cracks and I am not seeing any more bed bugs in places where I used it. Be sure to remember to add a few pebbles and coins to prevent it from clumping up and you shouldn't have any problems.
killed them little suckers

easy to use easy to store
By Josh in IA on 08/31/2016
First of all my order was processed fast and the shipping rates were very reasonable and it arrived in just a few days!! This duster works great to apply diatomacious earth to cracks in base boards and outlets. It works way better than the first one i had ordered off of amazon and it was cheaper also. I would definately recommend this to anyone i know!
Bellow Hand Duster
By Paul in Syracuse ny on 08/27/2016
THIS IS THE WORST PRODUCT I HAVE EVER BOUGHT ONLINE OR IN A STORE.When you try to spread the dust it goes every place but where you want it to go,
We are sorry to hear the bellow hand duster is not performing as expected. We would welcome the opportunity to troubleshoot this issue with you. In most cases, the duster is not being held properly which causes too much dust to be dispensed. The duster should be held with the black rubber stopper facing down. The bellow should not be depressed until the nozzle in the crack or crevice being treated. If you find this information does not solve your issue, please contact us via phone 866-581-7378 or email support@domyownpestcontrol.

QI am getting too much dust when I squeeze the bellow hand duster. Am I doing something wrong?
Firstly thanks for your great level of service and pricing. My last order included Delta dust and a duster. I am trying to dust my electrical outlets, however I notice no matter how gently I squeeze the duster I seem to get dust all over the place. The Delta dust seems to spill out into a cloud out of the electrical outlets. I am concerned that I could inhale the dust. Any advice would be appreciated.
AYou are most likely holding the bellow hand duster incorrectly. After you fill the bellow hand duster about 1/4-1/3 of the way with dust you should replace the black cap and then flip the duster over so the red or blue band is now at the top and the black rubber cap is facing the ground. This will help you dispense smaller amounts of dust into the outlets.

QHow can I solve the problem of a lot of dust shooting out with the Bellow duster?
When I use this with Drione Dust, a lot of dust just shoots out of the duster and it is really frustrating, so I want to know how to resolve this problem? Or do you have an electric duster for indoor purposes?
AThe bellow hand duster is made to hold in different positions to control the amount of dust that comes out. To let out the least amount of dust, you should actually hold the duster upside down, with the black plunger facing down. If you hold it to the side it will let out a little more, and then if you hold it upright, black plunger up which is probably how you are applying it now, it lets out the most amount of dust. The least amount of dust is actually the best method, so you should hold it upside down.
QCan the hand duster be used multiple times?
I was going to use it with Tri Dust. How often do I have to replace it?
AThe bellow hand duster can be used over and over again with no problem. Be sure to store the duster in a cool dry environment so that the rubber on the duster will not breakdown. Most people have their bellow hand dusters for years before they need to be replaced.
QCan the same bellow hand duster be used with two different dust pesticides?
.... as long as it is emptied of the first type before filling it with the second type?
AAs long as the bellow hand duster is completely emptied of the first dust insecticide there should be no problem using a second dust product in the same duster.

QGoing to kill bumble bee nest under a whiskey barrel. Is the inexpensive duster OK or do I need B&G?
The bees are definitely Bumble, not carpenter. They are in my back yard close to back door under a whiskey barrel planter. No body wants to move them, so I have to kill them. Too dangerous to allow them to stay with child & a dog that hunts bugs. I'm concerned about the nozzle length of the different dusters & being able to effectively get under the planter.
AThe bellow hand duster is usually sufficient for most small jobs. The bellow hand duster does have a 5 inch extension nozzle and you only have to get into the entrance of the nest. As the bees go in and out they will spread the dust through the nest themselves.

QHow much easier is the new design to compress?
I have the old design which I use to apply DE to my cats as the tip places the dust close to the skin where the fleas are. However, I have very small hands and need one of them to hold the cat. Is this one noticeably easier to use so that my hands won't become as fatigued?
AThe design of the Bellow Hand Duster has remained the same and we are not able to tell a difference between the ease of use. The Bellow Hand Duster has a spring mechanism that does require more presure to expel the dust. However, if the pressure needed to push the dust is a concern maybe the Bulb Duster may be a better option for your needs.

QWould the Bellow Hand Duster work with DE?
I want to be able to dust my chicken coop with DE on a regular schedule to keep away the mites.
AAbsolutely! The Bellow Hand Duster will work well with most dusts.

QCan I use an extension hose at end of the extension tip of the Bellow Hand Duster?
I know you sell the Long Shot Puffer, but will a piece of tubing, say 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch diameter hose fit on the end to use as an extension if I need to reach a few feet.
A We would recommend only using the Bellow Hand Duster as is, and not attempting add any additional tubing to the end of the extension. You most likely would lose both dust and necessary air pressure†out of the connection. If you need to reach longer distances, you could something like the B&G 2†Quart Duster 1152-A, which has several different attachments and adds an electrostatic charge to insecticide dusts. You may browse all of our Dusters here.

QDoes the Bellow Hand Duster work well with Borax acid for ants?
By electrical outlets would Borax acid work as well as other products.
