How to Properly Apply Pesticide Dust Using a Hand Duster


Hey, I’m Chris the Bug Guy from Domyownpestcontrol.com.
Today we’re going to show you how to apply dust throughout the home. These are our dust
products and applicators like the B&G 1150 Bulb Duster and the Bellow Hand Duster. Now
let’s go. We have the Bellow Hand Duster here. Now when you’re inside you want to do a light
amount of dust so you want to turn the Bellow Duster upside down, but you’re just going
to stick it right here at the front of it and just dust in the wall cubby. Just once,
that’s all you need. It doesn’t take a lot for the insects to pick up the dust. To access
the wall void, you want to have the duster go in between the box and the sheetrock. You
can see right here most of the time you will just need the help of a screwdriver to pull
the box away from the sheetrock enough for the duster to fit in between it. Once the
duster is in between it, you can just do a couple dusts inside the wall void. That dust
will come down and dissipate inside the wall void and catch any insects that are walking
down near the floor. If there is a gap in between your floor and the baseboard at least
just enough to get the duster underneath, it provides a great opportunity to treat that
area. So all you would do is put the 1150 Bulb Duster underneath the baseboard. Just
give it one puff every 12 inches apart. Behind the toilet where the pipe goes into the wall
is a perfect place to use the B&G 1150 Duster. Underneath the kitchen sink where the pipes
go either into the cabinets or back into the wall is an excellent place to apply dust.
Usually there’s slip covers on the pipes. You can just move those up and out of the
way, take the duster right into the crack, and now you can dust the void underneath the
sink cabinets.

  1. Thanks for your video! It is helpful!
    and I have a question:
    should I apply the DE in my room after the pest extermination or before the extermination ?

  2. I am looking for a safe way to eliminate wasps/yellow jackets from under my hot tub. I had a serious infestation last year, we had to take all the panels off many nests. I am working on blocking their access at the top on panels and would also like something I could shoot in from bottom. Which duster and is there a pole so I could work farther away.

  3. I am using a bulb duster and don't seem to be getting much dust up under the siding. Not getting that smoke look. Even in open air. So what should I be seeing? How much should come out?

  4. Just ordered the bulb one, would have been nice to see on a clean surface how much dust actually should come out…but suppose i will find out soon enough..
