Drione insecticide dust is an effective treatment for many different insect pests, including resistant species like bed bugs and roaches. It can be used alone or alongside baits and other forms of control to eliminate the pests at home or in commercial buildings. Not only does it work on contact, but it also provides residual activity for up to six months in ideal conditions.
How Drione Dust Insecticide Works
Drione dust contains the active ingredient pyrethrins to affect the insects on target. The pyrethrins cause over-excitement in the insects' nervous system, making them unable to feed or preen or to perform any basic functions. As the paralysis sets in, the insects die. Drione also includes piperonyl butoxide in the formulation. This synergist enhances the pyrethrins, making them work more effectively on the target insects.
Where to Use Drione Dust
Apply Drione insecticide dust in areas where insects hide and breed, such as in cracks and crevices. In fact, only apply Drione in cracks and crevices with a bulb duster in food-handling areas. Everywhere else, Drione can be applied beneath and behind appliances, in crawl spaces, under furniture, along baseboards and other areas to target the pests where they travel. Once they're covered in the dust, they will begin to preen and ingest the pyrethrins. It won't take long after that for them all to die.
Drione dust not only kills common household pests like ants and cockroaches. It also targets pantry pests like rice weevils and confused flour beetles, keeping food safe from contamination. It's effective at eliminating fleas and earwigs, as well as lice and ticks. Use it in nonfood areas of schools, restaurants, hotels and other businesses to target common pests such as silverfish, bed bugs and centipedes. It can even be used as a crack-and-crevice treatment to kill drywood termites.
Advantages of Drione Dust Insecticide
Liquid insecticides are often discouraged in areas with children, customers and pets. Drione dust is easy to apply in out-of-the-way areas, targeting the insects in hidden spaces and eliminating infestations out of sight. It starts to work on contact and provides residual pest control for six months when left undisturbed. Some of the main reasons to use Drione insecticide dust include:
- Stays active for months when left alone
- Kills entire pest infestations with a single application
- Can be used indoors in homes, businesses, schools and more
- Targets insects in cracks and crevices in food-handling areas
- Easy to apply and ready to use out of the bottle
Keep Pests Out of Businesses With Drione Dust
When using Drione dust alongside baits and liquid insecticides, it can help to eliminate infestations in days, not weeks. When used alone, it doesn't take long for the dust to kill the insects. It's very effective on social pests like roaches, termites and ants. The dust clings to their bodies and infects other colony members when they return to the nest. Whether it's pantry pests or wasps, Drione dust starts to work within hours of ingestion.
