Delta Dust

Free Shipping on All Orders

DeltaDust with DeltaGard 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 it, making DeltaDust an ideal crack and crevice treatment. It's effective against a broad spectrum of insects at a wide range of labeled use sites, indoors and out, especially against fleas and ticks in rodent burrows, as well as around pet kennels and in zoos. Since its effect is not diminished by moisture, DeltaDust provides a residual of up to 8 months with a DeltaGard active ingredient concentration of just 0.05%; probably the lowest of any insecticide dust anywhere.

For Use In

Cracks and Crevices indoors and outdoors


DeltaDust is a waterproof insecticide intended for application with a hand or power duster (Actisol® 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 DeltaDust per square yard (or 0.5 lbs per 1000 square feet).

Coverage Area

A standard 1 lb. bottle covers about 2000 sq. ft.

Active Ingredient

Deltamethrin 0.05%

Will this get rid on roaches and pest?
A shopper on Nov 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Delta dust will work for controlling roaches in the wall void, it will act as a long term control method for dust is meant to stay in out of the way places for long periods of time.

I would also recommend starting with a Roach Gel Bait, we recommend Apex, which is a 100% guaranteed roach gel bait.

How fast it works on German roaches, the dust that is do u know?
Anthony W on Sep 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. I used it for digger bees. It wiped out colonies within a week.
How fast will this product work on the insects?
Michael on Nov 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Delta Dust does not work on contact and it will depend on what type of insect you are asking about? For Carpenter Ants, we are looking at 2 to 4 days for 100% mortality.
Dust application recommendation

Where do I apply Delta Dust for bees outside of my house?
Michelle on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You would want to apply the Delta Dust to the opening that you are seeing the Carpenter Bee's moving in and out of. You can also apply an insecticide to the siding to help prevent them from re-infesting. Tempo SC is a good option,
Will using just the Delta Dust for bed bugs help my problem?
Renee on Oct 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend using a complete kit for bed bug control, so you would want to look at an aerosol, Phantom Aerosol and then an Insect Growth Regulator, and a concentrate such as D-fense SC.

nicest exterminator ever
having a bad wasp problem i called the exterminator, he took care of my problem and told me i could order the product he was using from epestsolutions.com and take care of any further wasp problems i may have. what a great guy to tell me that, he also made sure to tell me to get a insect dust applicator to apply the Delta Dust, the delta dust came just as described, arriving in a very timely manner, thank you pest solutions, due to what i have seen on your site i hopefully won't ever have to call the exterminator again, i'll be able to do it myself

Works Great!
Easy to apply with the bellows duster. Haven't had any bug problems since.

I love dead bugs
This powder kills just about anything that bugs you (pun intended). A puff or two at door and window sills keep most all critters out of the house (you need a duster/puffer). It does leave a white powder residue, so if you need to treat darker surface, then I recommend Bifen I/T. It'a a clear liquid. I always keep both in my garage.

Delta Dust, Its a Hit.
Purchased the Delta Dust to help limit the house infestation from Box Elder Bugs, within the first few hours of applying the dust along the baseboards, cracks and along the perimeter of houe.... The bugs seemed to slow down. Thank goodness, its a miracle, the next few days the bugs have stopped coming in and were dead. Would only purchase this product from now on.
