I am worried about possible health concerns after using/cleaning delta dust
Pest control company applied delta dust to a crevice in the kitchen floor but the white stuff was definitely visible. My husband felt it was working so he moved it to a crevice where the wall meets the kitchen counter and you could still see the white stuff. About 2-4 months later, a person from the same company told me to vacuum it off. I did but I did not wear a mask and my husband and my daughter were in the room when I did. I also think they used this Delta Dust in the crawl space/attic. I am very concerned about potential health risks especially because my daughter is 1 year old.
Simply vacuuming Delta Dust should not pose a health threat to you. We cannot comment on how the exterminator applied the product. Normally, only to cracks crevices and wall voids. Small amounts that you can hardly tell are there. Please contact the manufacturer bayer at 800-331-2867.
