How far vertically will the long shot puffer dust?
I'm trying to dust inside of 12 ft column.
This duster is designed to treat cracks and crevices or voids where you place the tip of the duster, so it will only travel a few inches from the tip. For larger voids, the B&G Mini Dust-R 1151M has a larger capacity and will push dust about 36 inches from the tip: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/bg-mini-dustr-1151m-p-378.html. There is also a 2 quart version of this duster, the B&G 1152-A, which is frequently used to treat attics and crawl spaces: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/bg-quart-duster-1152a-p-319.html. Both of these pump dusters come with extension tips that would still allow you to dust through a small opening. Pump dusters also add a static charge to the dust, helping it to cling to surfaces.
If you have a tall vertical void to treat, you could also drill high in the column and let gravity carry the dust down. For more detailed instructions, you may also call our customer service at 866-581-7378 M-F 9a-5p EST, so that we may address your specific situation.
