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.
Nice little duster...
By William in Long Beach on 11/17/2017
Works well. The fill plug is on the bottom while you are dusting of course, or the dust would just all blow out immediately. And don't forget to place the attached cap on tightly while filling the duster. Since the low-cost is a big plus I have given it a full 5 stars after initially selecting 4 -- a mundane product but everyone needs one. How about 5 or 10% Boric Acid and 90% DE.
By Vicki in McKenzie, Tennessee on 10/20/2017
Every home owner needs one of these. Easy to use and so inexpensive. I used it for the wasp around the house and every wasp disappeared.

The Bellow Hand Duster worked great for me...... but sadly the dust I bought to kill the yellow jackets in my wall didn't (D-fense Dust-Deltamethrin) didn't work at all. The people at DIY were easy to work with!
Great item for the job
By John in Toledo, Ohio on 08/28/2017
This duster arrived lickety split and is a great tool if you want a duster that lets you control the amount of pesticide dust sprayed out.
Works as expected
By Marvin in Algodones, New Mexico on 08/04/2017
Works as expected. Does the job and easy to use and fill.

Sorry DMOPC, but I bought one of these and it was horribly cheap quality. The sides are so thin it'll tear if anything remotely sharp is even in the neighborhood. That's the last thing you need- go to use it and end up with a face full of dust, or have it end up all over a customer's home. I found the same type, MUCH better quality on Amazon. Kills me to say it since I buy all my supplies here. This is the first, and only thing bought through DMOPC that I wasn't satisfied with.
Great product for spider control
By Melissa in Miami OK on 07/06/2017
Used as directed inside! This product works better then having professional company on routine sprays after they came we still had brown recluse we would have them on the spider traps and crawling in our home put new traps out and we haven't had any after using the sprayer and dust!
By David in Warne, NC on 07/03/2017
I bought this bellow duster to apply diatomaceous earth and copper sulphate in the garden. It works well. I hold it upside down when I start and then hold it sideways. When it gets low on powder, I hold it right side up. On the down side, when I opened the package it smelled really bad like cheap Chinese plastic. I had to put it outside to air out. Just hope that it lasts.
By Phil in Tampa FL on 06/25/2017
I use this with DE bug dust, this puts out a nice fine dusting w nozzle at top, sure beats the bath powder bottle! EZ to fill, EZ to use!
By Michael in zip 69217 on 06/24/2017
It took me 3 or 4 puffs to figure out the best way to use this thing but now I'm sold on it. The packaging was quite sketchy, just a plastic bag and this has a slender tube that could be easily bent but it came through just fine. The clean out rod and the screw on cap make this a very well designed tool.

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.

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.

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.
QHow much does a case of hand dusters weigh?
AOne case of Bellows Hand Dusters weighs 11 pounds.

QWhat should I use to apply dust for bed bugs?
A Insecticide dusts should be applied with a hand duster, such as the Bellow Hand Duster.† This makes it easier to apply the product in cracks and crevices where insects are found.†

QDoes the Bellow Hand Duster work well with Borax acid for ants?
By electrical outlets would Borax acid work as well as other products.
A The†Bellow Hand Duster†will work well with any dust. †We highly suggest you read over our detailed article called "How to Get Rid of Ants."†This gives a detailed breakdown of what steps to take for treating whether using baits or sprays and where to look for nesting sites. †Boric acid dusts can be used but they can take up to 14 days to kill an insect after they ingest it so might not be the best solo item to use, depending on your situation.
