Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1%

Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust with 1% Pyrethrin is a botanical insecticide dust that treats a broad range of insects (over 230 pests) including bed bugs, ants, roaches, crickets, fleas, centipedes and more. The pyrethrin gives the dust a fast kill and makes this all natural and safe for use around people and pets (always follow directions for safe use). Evergreen Pyrthrum Dust is OMRI Certified. Can be used in food handling and feed areas.

May be used on Livestock Animals and Livestock Premises.


Only Apply as a Spot Treatment to Areas No Greater Then 2 Feet by 2 Feet Per Room.

Crawling Insects:

Apply Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust, at the rate of 1.5 ounce per 50 square feet of surface area, into voids, cracks and crevices or other places where insects are traveling or harboring. Apply a continuous visible film underneath and behind stairs, behind and beneath sinks, stoves, refrigerators and other appliances, around garbage cans, cabinets. Treat on around and behind moldings, shelving, baseboards, doorsills, doorframes, floors, around drains, pipes and pipe openings, plumbing, bookcases, storage, utility installations and other areas where insects hide or travel. For severe infestations apply behind cabinets and walls, in crawlspaces and attics at the rate of 16 - 20 ounces per 1,000 square feet (4 to 5 ounces per 250 square feet).


For Bees and Wasps (Yellow Jackets, Hornets, and Paper Wasps):

It is advisable to treat bee and wasp (yellow jacket, hornet, and paper wasp) nests in the evening when insects are less active and have returned to the nest. Wear protective clothing if deemed necessary to avoid stings. Use a hand duster with extension tubes if necessary. Thoroughly dust the nest, entrance and surrounding areas. For best results, check nests carefully one or two days after treatment to ensure complete kill. Remove and destroy nest to prevent emergence of newly hatched insects. If removal is not possible, retreat the nest if necessary. For nests in wall voids, drill a hole in the area of the nest, apply dust, and reseal.

For Use on Landscape Plants, Indoors and Outdoors:

Ornamental Trees, Shrubs, Flowers and Foliage Plants

Building Perimeter Treatments:

To aid in preventing entry and infestations of buildings by listed insects, Apply 16 to 24 oz. of Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust per 1,000 square feet (4 to 6 ounces of Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust per 250 square feet) to building exterior as a perimeter treatment in a band extending 12 - 18" along and adjacent to foundation, and to a height of 2 to 3 feet up the side of the building where these pests are active and may find entrance.

To Kill Insects Harboring in Lawns, Landscaping, and Backyards:

To aid in the control of listed insects, apply Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust at the rate of 8 to 24 ounces per 1,000 square feet (2 to 6 ounces of Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust per 250 square feet). For best results, lawn should be mowed one to two (1 - 2) days before applying, and clippings removed. Be sure to cover the entire lawn surface where insects are present, or normally frequent. Apply under ornamental plants, shrubs and trees. Do not water or irrigate immediately following application. Keep pets and children out of the treated area until after the dust has settled.

Tips for using Evergreen Dust effectively

  1. Apply the product only as specified on the label.
  2. Do NOT apply the product where it will directly contact people and pets (for example, do not apply the dust on your pet). Keep dust treatments to cracks and crevices where insects live and hide.
  3. For Bed Bugs: use Evergreen Pyrethrum dust in conjunction with other bed bug control products including Bedlam Aerosol, Cyonara 9.7 or Onslaught, and other bed bug insecticides.
  4. Clean-Up: Vacuum up remaining dust and dead insects after treatment.

    5 of 5 stars  Yellowjackets in my walls
    By Marc in Folsom, CA on 09/30/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I had a yellowjacket nest in my walls and all the wasp spray in the world wouldn't suppress the growing problem and activity. One application of this stuff about 10pm after all were back in the hive took care of it. Not a peep since.

    I live in Florida and as you know we have lots of problems with Roaches and Palmetto bugs. Since I saw Billy the Exterminator using Pyrethrum I decided to try it. I was thrilled that my cats were not in danger and the product has worked wonders. I have not seen any bugs at all. I tried it for sugar ants and that worked also. This stuff is great and I would reccomend it to everyone. Sincerely, Karen M Burrows

    By Fernando in chicago, il on 10/25/2013

    I used this with a dusting bellow to get into a hole in my siding where yellow jackets were very active. I puffed this dust in there and it took care of the problem it seemed like the same day. By the next morning there we a bunch of yellow jackets dead on the ground and no activity from the active hole.

    5 of 5 stars  Works really well
    By Steve in Upstate NY on 11/03/2017

    I had wasps in my roof, and couldn't get at the nest without tearing the roof open. I tried a bunch of different sprays directed at and into the hole the wasps were using to go in and out, but it only killed a few near the entrance. I was about to call a professional when I tired this. One good application with an applicator, late on a cool evening, and I haven't see a wasp since. Perfect.

  • 1 of 5 stars  Really fired up the yellowjacket Wasps
    By Michael in Webster, NY on 09/29/2017

    Yellowjacket wasps found a crack in my vinyl siding and built a hive somewhere under the siding. After dark, I used the long narrow tube attachment on the duster and sprayed inside the vinyl siding. The next day the wasps were furious. A major swarm of wasps flying around violently. I repeated the process the next night and the following day is was as bad or worse. It did not do a thing to get rid of the wasps but it certainly made them very angry.

    Thank you for your review. We apologize you did not receive the expected results. However, Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% can last for up to 4-6 months depending on where it was applied. You should also note that Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% dust does not have an immediate kill (all dusts take time to kill insects), and it can take about 3 days for insects to die after they have come into contact with treated areas.

  • 1 of 5 stars  Seems completely ineffective against my yellow jackets
    By Bill in cornwall NY on 08/24/2017

    I tried 4 applications of this on two different yellow jacket nests - One in the ground and one in the siding of my house - and it seems to have had no effect on the yellow jackets. I used a bellow duster to apply and also tried applying directly from the bottle to the nest on the ground since it seemed like I might be able to apply it a bit heavier that way when the first few applications didnt work. Bottom line is I seem to have more yellow jackets than ever. I did get my order quickly so no complaints about that aspect of my purchase.

  • 4 of 5 stars  Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust
    By Michael in PA on 08/23/2017

    I have applied three containers of the pyrethrum dust to multiple openings for my cicada wasp infestation . I do not see immediate positive results in the beginning but I do believe it is working. The true test is next August when and if they return. This is the same product pest control companies apply, but I applied it at 6 AM and saw less and less mounds of dirt each day. Wait and see.

    5 of 5 stars  Excelllent product!
    By Jan in Oceanside, CA on 05/20/2017

    I am highly allergic to biting mites, and was delighted to find there was a pyrethrin product in powder form. I got the $20 hand duster and dusted the Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust along the baseboards of my house. I was surprised at how effective it was. Recently make the mistake of giving money to a homeless man and came home covered in biting mites. Despite bathing and washing my hair immediately, i still left a trail of mites from the door, down the hall, etc. I dusted all the affected areas, not just the baseboards, and by the next day the problem was eliminated. Thank heavens I had it. Had to go back and dust and vacuum, but it was worth it to get rid of the mites.

    5 of 5 stars  Works great
    By Jessica in Des Moines, IA on 12/13/2016

    We had a problem this summer with a colony of yellow jackets, they moved into our walls by our back door. We needed them gone quickly because we were having a baby in a month and the yellow jackets were getting into the house. I still don't know how they were getting in. Honestly I didn't know what they were at first and did some research after 2 cans of wasp spray did absolutely nothing. The little buggers found a way in behind our siding through an opening on the door frame. At first we tried to blow the Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust into the opening they were using but it didn't do a whole lot. Then we got a straw and used it to bend around into the space behind the siding. That worked! Within 3 days there were no more yellow jackets both inside and out of our house. I would recommend this to anyone with a yellow jacket problem.

    1 of 5 stars  Pyrethrum dust
    By Ed in New York on 10/25/2016

    Sprayed the yellow jacket nest 3 times and it did nothing. Not sure what else I could have done. I had 3 ground nests and I sprayed all three, three nights in a row. The bees kept flying in and out. It did not seem to do anything.

    Expert Response   Expert response:
    Thank you for your comments! If you are able to contact the nest directly, then the Evergreen Dust should do a good job of controlling the insects; it just sounds like you need to give the product more time. Dust has a much slower kill on target insects than formulations like sprays, so we encourage you to be more patient so that it has time to work. For quick knockdown of flying stinging insects, we suggest Wasp Freeze Aerosol: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/pt-wasp-freeze-ii-aerosol-175-oz-p-60.html Please let us know if we can further assist you. We appreciate your business and your feedback!

QOnce Evergreen dust is applied inside walls, crevices, electrical boxes, how long does its potency last?
We are trying to create barriers against bed bugs between apartments in multi-unit buildings and don't want to reapply constantly. Diatomaceous earth works forever as long as it doesn't get wet but doesn't have the instant kill that this dust has.

AEvergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% can last for up to 4-6 months depending on where it was applied. You should also note that Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% dust does not have an immediate kill (all dusts take time to kill insects), and it can take about 3 days for insects to die after they have come into contact with treated areas. And while it is true that Diatomaceous earth can last indefinitely it will still need to be reapplied as it becomes covered with other dust or debris.

QDoes Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust have a long lasting effect against all insects and does it work as a residual treatment? Could it work underneath steam hot water pipes which is the main area where the bugs in my home reside such as pillbugs, silverfish, centipede, etc?

AEvergreen Pyrethrum Dust will last up to 8 months and provide long lasting residual protection on just about any insect that walks over it.  The main concern is that if you apply it where there is moisture than it can lose some of its potency and turn clumpy.  It is not water resistant.  It can be applied underneath water pipes (unless they are leaking or dripping) and just about any other avenue that insects use to gain entry. Delta Dust may be more suited to your needs. Delta Dust is water proof and provide the same results as Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust.

QWhat are the side effects for humans if the product is inhaled or comes in contact with the skin?

AEvergreen Pyrethrum Dust is an all natural product and the ingredient from it comes from the crysanthymum plant. You would want to use the same precautions with an all natura product as you would any other insecticide or even house cleaning product. Take care to follow the instructions on the label and only use in areas it designates is safe for use. If it touches your skin, wash your skin with soap and hot water to remove it. Any side effect to a human would vary on the human and their sensitivity to the product.

QHow does Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust kill bed bugs?
I recently purchased Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust and applied it to my daughters room around the baseboards and inside the drawers and around the wooden platform of her bed. I did this about 2 weeks after the PCOs came and treated all of the bedrooms in my house as an extra precaution. Since the PCOs had treated my house after their first visit, she has not gotten any bites. However, when my daughter slept in her room the night after I applied the dust, she was terribly bitten all over her arms and shoulders. I called the PCOs again and they came back and retreated all the bedrooms. This is in addition to the relentless cleaning I have been doing. My question is then, how does the dust work? Does it aggravate the bed bugs to come out of their hiding place? How long does it take for it to kill the bed bugs?


It sounds like the treatment that the PCO's applied had worn off after two weeks (bedbug treatments are supposed to be repeated about every 7-10 days to stop this from being a problem). Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust has the active ingredient of Pyrethrins and can take up to 1 week to kill a bedbug which is why you must use it conjunction with other products. It does seem to be coincidental that your daughter received bites the night after you applied the dust. Had she been sleeping some where else besides her room before that night? If so, the bedbugs may have simply been hiding in the wall and when she resumed sleeping in her room they were able to detect her and came out to feed. We have never had complaints of the dust causing the bedbugs to bite. If the dust has not been vacuumed up or otherwise removed, there is no reason to reapply as the dust will last for several months.

QWill Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% kill wasps in a ground nest? If so, how do I apply?
I have dogs, and I am.looking for a safe product, would this one be the best? Should I keep them out of the backyard for a period of time after using this product?


Yes, you can use Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1%†as it is labeled for wasps. You can puff†the application into the nest using something like a B&G Bulb Duster 1150. The product is safe as long as it's used per the label. You do need to dust into the nest rather than just around the entrance of it.

QCan I use Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust in soil?
I have termites coming into the soil of my tomato plants and my tomatoes are ripening. They're killing off my plants one at a time and moving on. Can I use the dust in the soil without causing any harm to the plant?


Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust is not for use for termite control or for use on edible gardens. Since termites will only feed on raw cellulosic materials, it is much more likely that something else is causing the decay of your tomato plants. If live termites are observed around edible plants, most customers will simply use some very hot or boiling water to kill the ones they see. You can also view our Termite Prevention Guide for information about how to protect your home from subterranean termites.

QDoes Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% kill brown recluse spiders?


While the product label for Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% does not specifically list brown recluse spiders, this product is a non-selective insecticide and will kill and insects and similar pests that come into contact with enough of the active ingredient. Just keep in mind that dusts are not a knockdown kill.†Our Spider Control Kit would be a great choice for additional products to control brown recluse and other spiders, as well as the insects that spiders will hunt. This kit includes Temprid SC, a residual insecticide concentrate;†CB-80, an aerosol that kills pests on contact; and glue boards to help catch and monitor crawling pests. Please see our Spider Treatment Guide for more tips and information.

Be sure to leave the dust down for at least 24 hours for it to settle and get on to the pests. It can then be vacuumed up. This product is not labeled to be applied directly to clothing.

QCan we burn Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% like Buhach?
Before Buhach went out of business, we used to burn it to keep flying insects out of the house, just a little went a long way and could last for an hour. Can we do that with Evergreen Pyrethum dust?


No, Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% should not be burned. This is an insecticide dust that is a ready-to-use insecticide to be applied directly to cracks and crevices with a duster such as a bellow hand duster. Please refer to the product label for complete application instructions. If you would like to tell us more about the situation that you are trying to control, then we would be happy to offer additional advice.

QWill Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% kill and control Rover Ants?
I have Rover Ants that I haven't figured out where they are coming in from. I wanted to use Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% inside our walls.(Since i can't find where they are coming, in perhaps through weep holes into the walls?) Will it kill Rover Ants?


Evergreen Pyrethrum Dust 1% is labeled to kill ants so it would be a great idea to dust it inside the wall voids but it will only work if the ants come in contact with the product, so make sure that they are going into or coming out from the wall voids. You could also spray around the perimeter of your home to have them pick up the product from where ever they're coming in from.

We'd highly recommend checking out our Ant Control Page to learn how to do your own Inspection and how to treat for ants.

QIs there a withholding period when using this product on poultry?

Is there a withholding period for eggs when using this product to treat poultry and their housing, and if so what is it?

AThere is no wait time for consumings eggs after Evergreen Dust is applied to chickens.
