Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
DeltaDust works by attaching itself to the bed bug where it eventually absorbs into the bed bug's outer shell and causes death. What's great about DeltaDust is that it does not absorb water and can kill bed bugs up to 8 months. The active ingredient of DeltaDust is deltamethrin, which is a synthetic pyrethrum. We suggest using our Professional Bed Bug Applicator to apply DeltaDust. Delta Dust can be abrasive to the skin and like any dust should applied carefully to reduce the amount stirred up in the air (a dust mask, gloves and eye protection is necessary for application).We suggest applying the dust into any crack bed bugs may be hiding in, behind cabinets, and along baseboards. Always read and adhere to the instructions on the products label to ensure proper and safe usage.
Bed Bug Supply Team
DeltaDust is intended for application with a hand or power duster (Actisol DPA or similar equipment) for hiding and runaway areas and other places where insects are found.
In living areas, apply in such a manner as to avoid depositions on exposed surfaces or introducing the material into the air. In the home, all food processing surfaces and utensils should be covered during treatment or thoroughly washed before use. Exposed food should be covered or removed.
To apply insecticide directly into cracks and crevices, use a bulbous duster or other suitable equipment. Apply lightly and uniformly to infested area. Pay particular attention to: cracks and crevices, floors and ceilings, wall voids, around electrical and telephone fittings and equipment, around water and sewer pipes, under and behind cabinets, refrigerators and sinks, around windows and door frames, and along baseboards. The amount to be applied will vary with the site but should usually be in the range of 2-3 grams of DeltaDust per square yard (or 0.5 lbs per 1000 square feet).
Proper Dusting Tips:
When applying, the duster should be filled only halfway - 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 overapplication of the product and messy spills.
Between each squeeze, the duster should be shaken slightly to get dust floating inside the unit.
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.
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. Also, always keep the screen inside the duster in place as this is designed to help maintain a fine dust consistency.
Apply dust carefully and judiciously so it does not travel to areas where it might represent a hazard. Prevent food contamination by not applying dust to where it could filter down onto food or food areas after it is applied. Also, be aware of any air currents that could transfer dust to containers or other objects, leading to food contamination.
If the applicator is to apply any kind of dust for extended periods of time, he or she should wear a respirator approved by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).
When using high-volume or high-pressure equipment to apply dust in attics or sub-floor crawl spaces, wear a NIOSH-approved respirator. Also, shut off fans, air conditioners, and hot-air heating equipment if necessary. If the dust is combustible, put out all flames and pilot lights, and shut down all spark-producing equipment in the treated area to avoid explosions.

YOU GUYS HAVE LIVED UP TO YOUR STANDARDS UR PRODUCTS SEEM TO BE WORKING AND I SEE LESS BEDBUGS IN MY HOME SEE A FEW HERE AND THERE BUT UR PRODUCTS ARE GOOD TO HAVE....
Goes A Long Way
We used one bottle for 4 apartments using the green applicator offered on the site. It goes a looong way so I wouldn't get more than one bottle unless your doing an entire building. It seemed to work well (we didn't get any complaints so I guess that's good).
