How come I can't dust Delta Dust on baseboards? And how long before it will start working on killing bed bugs...


You can use Delta in the cracks and crevices in and around your baseboards. You should not apply it on the outside of the baseboards because it will get moved around just through normal daily activities (walking past, vacuuming, sweeping, etc) and will not remain in the areas where you applied it. Bedbugs usually start dying within 1 week of coming into contact with areas treated with Delta dust. Please note that you should not use Delta Dust alone to combat bedbug infestations as it is slow acting. Please checkout our bedbug kits for our product recommendations.
