J.T. Eaton Kills Bedbugs and Crawling Insects Powder (Diatomaceous Earth - residual powder)
Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Powder is one of our best selling powders and offers great value, quality and is one of the longest killing bed bug products on the market.
We suggest using our Professional Bed Bug Applicator to apply JT Eaton Bed Bug Powder, which helps to apply the powder with better control and into hard to reach areas. JT Eaton Powder should be applied after the room is steamed and J.T. Eaton Bed Bug Killer (pyrethrin killer), Bedlam Plus and JT Eaton's Bed Bug Killer II (deltamethrin) have been applied and are fully dry. Powder is designed to go into places where the sprays cannot including inside electrical outlets and deep cracks in wall voids, behind picture frames, below the edges of carpeting and rugs, etc.
What we really like about the JT Eaton powder is as long as it's left undisturbed, it will continue to kill indefinitely and only needs to be applied just once during a ed bug treatment. Please see the picture below illustrating where to use each of the J.T Eaton bed bug products. Before applying any of the JT. Eaton bed bug products, we recommend using our Professional Bed Bug Steamer on the edges of the room and inside cracks and crevices (allow to dry for one hour or until fully dry).
J.T Eaton Bed Bug Powder works by treating every deep hiding place bed bugs may attempt to seek refuge in (resulting in no place to hide without being killed). When a bed bug crawls into a treated crack or crevice they are instantly coated in powder, which adheres to their out membrane cutting them up and eventually leading to the bed bugs death due to dehydrations and asphyxiation. Bed bugs are made up of 65% water so it doesn't take a lot of powder to dehydrate and kill them. Bed bug powder 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 and eye protection are recommended for application). We offer a Professional Applicator, which offers better control when applying the powder and allows the user to gain access to hard to reach areas.
Apply the bed bug powder directly into the cracks of baseboards, into crevices and inside walls by removing the electrical plates (do not powder into the electrical outlet). Apply powder only into cracks and crevices (places where bed bug hide) and not all over the place in large powder mounds. If applied properly, you shouldn't be able to visibly see the powder. Always follow the product's label for proper usage and precautions. Unless the powder is disturbed, wet or vacuumed up with a HEPA equipped vacuum, an additional application is not needed. Again, powder should also be applied after the room is steamed and the first application of JT Eaton Kills Bed Bugs Red Bottle Contact Killer and either our Phantom Aerosol, Bedlam Bed Bug Spray or JT Eaton Bed Bug Killer II (blue bottle) is applied. Bed bug powder should be kept dry and away from moisture to be effective. Always read and follow the instructions on the product's label to ensure proper and safe usage.
Diatomaceous Earth is made up of ground fossilized material, which acts like tiny razor blades that cut open the outer layer of the bed bug causing them to dehydrate and asphyxiate.
The powder can applied inside indoor cracks, around electrical outlets, inside walls, between carpet and the wall and around electronics. Unlike other diatomaceous earth powders, JT Eaton is labeled for use against bed bugs ensuring effectiveness.
• Along the seams and folds of mattresses before certified bedding encasements are applie
• Behind picture frames
• Between the carpeting and baseboards or cracks inside the baseboards (if applied properly you shouldn't be able to see the powder)
• Inside electrical outlets (by remove the outlet faceplates and dusting all 4 corners of the inside cavity - be sure power is off and do not powder where the plug goes).
• Inside deep cracks of furniture (if a credit card can fit in the crack a bed bug can too!
• Please see the illustration of the bedroom below for a more detailed list of places to apply.
Founded in 1932 by Jasper T. Eaton, the company started as a mail order house for pest control products for professional use.
Stanley Z. Baker purchased the company in 1949. Never satisfied, Stanley developed new and innovative products for professional pest control operators.
In 1962 Stanley invented the paraffin bait block which is the industry standard today.
Again in 1979 Stanley developed the first glue board as we know them today. Before that, some professionals used the radiators of their cars to melt industrial glue and spread the glue across wood planks or tar paper.
Since then, J.T. Eaton has gone on to create innovative products for the pest control industry as well as the retail industry. Most recently J.T. Eaton launched an extremely successful Bed Bug insecticide, a Top Loader bait stations, green light flying insect catchers and advanced seed bait place packs.
J.T. Eaton is a family-run business that offers a complete line of products designed to help pest management professionals provide quality service to their customers. All J.T. Eaton products are available in a variety of sizes, when applicable, to fit the needs of any firm. J.T.
