Directions for Use
This product is a dust and can be puffed straight from the bottle. Unscrew the main top and take out the foam liner and then screw the top back on. Then remove the green cap and cut barely 1/8” off the applicator nozzle to open up a small hole. The bottle is now ready to be used as a puffer applicator.
Apply as a light dusting, at a rate of about 2 oz per 100 sq ft. If directly treating a nest or an area with a number of pests present, a little heavier dusting is recommended.
General Pests (Spiders, Ants, Cockroaches, Earwigs, Silverfish, Mites etc):
Apply dust in attics, basements, trash and utility closets, behind or along baseboards, in drawer wells and hollow furniture legs, under and behind appliances, in wall voids and voids under and behind cabinets, sinks and tubs, in weep holes in brick or siding, around basement drains, around electrical conduit and pipe runs and in other cracks and crevices where pests may hide or enter buildings. Focus application in areas where pests or their signs are seen.
Application tips for some areas:
- In attics, be sure to get dust near the eaves and vent pipes where insects often first enter, as well as around any pipes or potential access points between the attic and the main structure.
- When treating cabinetry areas, if there is no gap between the lower cabinets and the kickplate, then small holes can be drilled to access the voids. Escutcheon plates around pipes can also be pulled back to allow access to voids.
- The bottom drawers in kitchen and bathroom cabinets can be removed and dust applied into drawer wells. No dust should be left exposed when drawers are replaced.
- Electrical switch plate covers can be removed to allow access to walls voids.
- If there are cracks between baseboards, cabinets, doorframes, hinges, counters or trim, and walls, these cracks can be lightly dusted with product. If practical, these areas can be sealed once insect problems have been eliminated, to help prevent future problems.
- Insects need moisture, so kitchen and bath areas and areas immediately surrounding them, and any other damp areas should be carefully inspected and treated if necessary.
Fleas, Lice and Ticks:
Treat kennels, pet bedding/rest areas, floor and floor coverings, cracks behind molding and baseboards and other areas where pests may harbor. Don’t use for human head lice.
- This product can provide some residual protection against bed bugs, but should not be used as the sole treatment. We recommend you contact a professional if you have bed bugs.
- Remove bedding and take the bed apart.
- Treat the interior framework, joints and cracks in the bed frame.
- Treat the tufts, folds, edges, and the interior framework of the box spring.
- Treat behind wall-mounted head boards.
- Treat moldings, hollow furniture legs, cracks and crevices, along baseboards, under carpet tack strips and any areas with visible signs of infestation.
- Treat upholstered furniture by removing or lifting (if possible) the cushions and treating the undersurface.
- Treat the interior framework, cracks and joints of the furniture, and the folds, tufts and edges of cushions and other upholstered areas.
- Do not treat toys and stuffed animals with product. Treat wall voids as noted in the general pest section.
Treatment of Nests in Walls and Infested Wood:
Ants, stinging insects and wood-destroying insects can build nests in wall voids or infest structural wood. Locate areas where insects have infested including nests, tunnels, galleries and cavities and inject dust into the area. Drill small holes 8-10” apart in the infested area to be sure nests and galleries can be treated thoroughly. For Carpenter bees, treat the entrance holes and then plug with stainless steel wool. For termites, this product is only a supplemental treatment to kill workers and winged forms that are present in the area when you treat. It is not recommended as a substitute for a professional treatment. For any infestation of a wood-destroying pest where structural damage has occurred or could occur, we recommend you contact a professional.
Ground Nest Treatment – Ants and Stinging Insects:
For ants, cover the mound with dust and gently puff dust into the nest entrance. Be careful not to disturb the mound, particularly when treating fire ants. Repeat a few days later if there is still ant activity. For best results, treat with a broadcast granular ant bait first, then follow-up with direct nest treatment with this product a week later.
For stinging insects, be extremely careful when treating nests. For protection, cover as much of your skin as possible with clothing. Individuals who are allergic to insect stings should never treat stinging insects. Have someone else do the treatment or call a professional. For best results, treat in the early morning or late evening when the largest number of insects will be in the nest. Thoroughly coat the nest entrance with dust and puff carefully into entrances if this can be done without disturbing the nest structure. Repeat a day or two later if there is still activity. For hanging or tree nests, a better option is Maggie’s Farm Flea, Tick and Mosquito Killer in the hose-end spray bottle, using the straight- stream setting. Read the label directions for that product before using. Certain species such as yellow jackets and hornets are very aggressive. Use extreme caution when treating these insects, or call a professional.
Dust infested plants lightly. For best results, try to get the dust on the underside of leaves. Repeat after a couple of days if needed.

QI'm just curious if I were to use it outside and then it rained would Maggies Farm Spider and Insect Dust be completely washed away or no longer effective?
So this product is a dust and I believe the product info said indoor and outdoors as well.
AMaggies Farm Spider and Insect Dust does not have a long lasting residual outdoors, typically only a few days. Maggies Farm Spider and Insect Dust will no longer be effective after rainfall so a repeat application would be recommended.

QWhat type of spiders doe the Maggies Farm Spider and Insect Dust control?
Will it kill brown recluse and scorpions?
A We apologize but this product is new to our inventory so we can't offer much advice outside of what the product label advises. The product label does not specifically state any species of spider it does or does not control, only that it controls spiders in general. The product label does not state that it will control scorpions so we would not recommend it for that use. General Pests: (ants, spiders, etc)

I'm looking for something to rid my yard of spiders, stink bugs, mosquitoes and other biting insects for a 4th of July party. I have pets that play in the yard so it must not be harmful to pets. What would you recommend? Thanks.

Once I apply this product, when does it need to be re-applied? In other words, how long is an application effective before it needs to be re-applied??
AMaggies Farm Spider and Insect Dust can last for many years in wall voids depending on how often it is disturbed. We would recommend using the dust every 7 months or so to continue to combat insects.

QHow do you use this in dog kennel with straw/hay bedding? Do you dust the straw/hay directly?
Could it harm pets to "root" around in their hay after applied?
AMaggies Farm Spider and Insect Dust is not labeled to be used on pet bedding we cannot recommend it. You could think about applying Alpine Flea Insecticide to the pet bedding.
