Delta Dust containing is the world's first and only 100% waterproof insecticide dust, so it works in the wet and damp places that insects love. Nothing short of running water will disturb Delta Dust, making Delta Dust an ideal crack and crevice treatment. Delta Dust should be applied with a bellows hand duster (sold separately) which allows you to easily apply the dust in hard to reach areas. One application of Delta Dust will keep on killing insects for up to eight months. DELTADUST Application Tips: Delta Dust is intended for application with a hand or power duster (ACTi sol DPA or similar equipment), with a paint brush or by other suitable means, 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, service ducts, 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, along baseboards, in attics and crawl spaces. The amount to be applied will vary with the site but should usually be in the range of 2-3 grams of Delta Dust 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 over application 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. When treating around electrical outlets, use dusters fitted with plastic or fiberglass spouts, or place a small section of rubber hose or plastic tubing over the metal tip to avoid contacting electrical wires. These tubes will also enable you to reach around corners and beneath cabinet voids that would otherwise be impossible to treat. 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.

BUT, I had a very special circumstance with my 87 year old Mother In Law.
She was mowing and weed whacking her backyard and was attacked by yellow jacket wasps from an in ground nest.
I had to go and deal with them for her safety and peace of mind, which led me on a quest for the most effective, yet least dangerous pesticide treatment.
I decided to use DeltaDust as it uses Deltamethrin at .05% as its active insecticide ingredient.
I felt fine using this as it's the same insecticide used on many widely approved cat and dog tick/flea collars. Safe for animals and bad for insect pests.
WARNING - this is not a "knock-down" insecticide, it takes time to work, so after you deliver some puffs of DeltaDust into the ground wasp nest, they can and will fly out in every direction. So, have pets and children in a safe location.
I located the LARGE wasp nest and thumped the ground to get them agitated before puffing the dust into their entrance. This gets them going and in an interior frenzy which will aid in dispersing the powder so it can go to work throughout the colony/nest.
Within 30 minutes, the activity was very low. Dusted wasps were climbing out and flying to nearby trees/shrubs/grape vines. While the only wasps fling "in" were clean and are only returning foragers. None of the "dusted" wasps flew out and returned, they were on a one-way trip.
I used roughly 1/2 of the contents of the 1 Pound bottle. I did not use another aspirator as I felt it wasn't necessary. Simply cut the tip of the Delta Dust bottle very near the top and you can puff dust directly from the bottle that will carry nicely into the hole.
I am sure it will work on many other pest insects, but my test was on yellow jacket wasps and I am 100% satisfied with the ingredients and performance. My Mother In Law reported that the following morning (I treated at 8 pm), there were no remaining wasps entering or leaving the nest opening.
Five Stars for using an insecticide that demonstrates no risk to animals, and for 100% effective kill within 12 hours of application.
I am getting more so I have it on the shelf for future "emergencies" involving ground wasps.
Seem dramatic? There are thousands that know exactly what I mean!
My sister brought home bed bugs from a friends house that we later learned had been infested. We only discovered them by accident, on her mattress while moving it during a move and just threw her entire bed out. We'd had no idea that they had even been in the home and believed that it was just isolated to her and her bed. Problem solved. No! We were naive then, but the damage was already done as they soon flourished in our big new beautiful home. I didn't know a thing about bed bugs back then. Didn't even know they really existed. I do now after enough research to write a 500 page book.
So here we are.
I'm using many tactics but am happiest with this because it kills quickly and has an indefinite residual when left undisturbed inside the home. And it's one of the only residual killers that kills quickly. It does need to be used with care. I have a toddler and this is toxic.
With bed bugs you need many types of treatment working simultaneously. A contact killer( I use bedlam and alcohol), residual killer( DE and this), and growth inhibitor( I use Gentrol IGR with long residual) to stop the second generation of hatching eggs. You need to halt the growth cycle and this is the only true way.
Our pest guy ( who was honest and knowledgeable) gave us advice as an alternative to treatment from him-all of the above plus:
Isolate your bed. Get it away from the wall. Use climb up protectors. I threw out my headboard. Treat your bed frame well. Get covers for you mattress AND box springs and all pillows. Heat treat unwashables by leaving them in the sun in black garbage bags on a hot day for 2 days. He said this is the poor mans heat treatment and is just as effective.
He doesn't even recommend whole house heat treatments as they fail so often as it's sometimes impossible to heat EVERYTHING to 125 degrees.
Treat the inside ( behind the plates) of light and electric sockets with a DRY treatment such as this or DE ( diatomaceous earth). Treat ALL baseboards( the space in between the carpet and wall),
AND DECLUTTER. Bed bugs hide in clutter, especially things they can reach from the floor. They can live in just about anything- even books, papers, computers and electronics, love curtains ( found one hiding in my blinds) and pretty much anything else- places where lots of traditional treatments( like those useless foggers or contact sprays) won't even reach them. BUT they have to come out to feed and when they do, if you treated areas that they must cross they will indeed die. The majority of bedbugs will prefer a 5 foot radius of your resting areas( couches and chairs too). Just don't forget to treat unused areas too as the females will travel further away, to secluded areas to lay eggs. Bed bugs do not just live in beds or bed rooms, that for sure.
They love the cracks and crevices in furniture. Treat all of the frames and seams of chairs, desks, dressers, drawers, etc. Dust no personal contact areas with this or DE. I sprinkled this UNDER my dresser drawers, under couches, under rugs and outlined my closets. Spraying IGR in these places is good too though IGRs aren't harmful to us through casual contact.
My clothes are in large ziplock bags for quick access and others are stored in vacuum bags. Maybe some will suffocate!
Wash everything in hot water and dry for extended periods. DO NOT put treated clothes back into the general population to be reinfested. This is a common mistake. Store them in garbage bags sealed with rubber bands if you have to.
I found that the best way to use this is by putting some in a bowl and dusting it lightly and carefully with a paint brush. It helps with a light, controlled application and can really get down into the cracks. Blowers puff this into the air and it is MUCH dustier than even straight DE.
It's been about 3-4 weeks since we saw a live bed bug or had a bite.
The above is working. Just make sure to treat every area and do so over and over until 100% gone. It's a huge commitment, like a true battle! Bed bugs can live without feeding up to 18 months! Miss all but one bug or egg and the reinfestation could start all over again. Be weary when considering them defeated, they can be hard to find even for professionals( our pest guy saw none when I had seen a few). I presented my guy with a dead one in a sandwich bag to which he quickly identified it. As if I didn't know them by now despite our intimate midnight rendezvous! Their survival is based on their amazing ability to hide undetected. Some pros resort to bed bug sniffing dogs because they are so elusive.
This is not to discourage you, but to help you to understand the reality of effective treatment. My housemates prefers to stick their heads in the sand. It can be done on your own! Be diligent are famous words. It is an emotional ride and sufferers will understand completely what this means.
Ignoring them only makes it worse and you will potentially lose everything you own to them. I didn't want that to happen to us.
If you have them, you have to commit to long term treatment. That's fine with me because I refuse to live with these disgusting pests.
We have been bug free for almost an entire season! This can work!
We have been 100% bed bug free for almost 3 years now!
