Drione Dust, manufactured by Bayer, is a powerful insecticide dust that provides fast control of standard pests like cockroaches, bed bugs, silverfish, and more. Once applied, it will remain effective for up to 6 months, saving you time on future pest visits.

This easy-to-use desiccant features natural pyrethrum 1.0% and amorphous silica gel 40.0%, which is produced from sand and erodes the insect cuticle, causing the pest to die from dehydration after two days. It also contains the active ingredient piperonyl butoxide 10.0%, which enhances the pyrethrins' success on the toughest insects.

Drione Dust is an excellent flushing tool that effectively pinpoints infestations and breeding sites in hard-to-reach areas for complete pest elimination. When applied, it has no odor and will not stain treated areas, making it ideal for killing pests such as ants in sensitive indoor areas.

Tools Needed

To apply Drione Dust, you will need to use a handheld bulb duster or hand duster.

How to Use

Using a bulb duster

  • Step 1: Determine how much Drione Dust to use by measuring the square footage of the treatment area. To do this, you will need to measure the treatment areas' length and width in feet and multiply them together (length X width = square footage). To control crawling insects in animal quarters and stored products, use 2 oz. of Drione Dust per 100 sq. ft. of surface area. For severe infestations, apply this product behind cabinets and walls, in crawlspace, and attics at the rate of 16 oz of product per 1,000 sq. ft. of surface area. To get rid of drywood termites, apply 1 lb. of product per 1,000 sq. ft. of floor area. To get rid of fleas in lawns, basements, and crawl spaces, use 16 oz. of product per 1,000 sq. ft. For example, if you calculated a treatment area of 150 sq. ft., you will need to apply 3 oz.. of Drione Dust.
  • Step 2: Drione Dust's container can be used as an applicator, or a handheld bulb duster can be used. If the bottle is being used, squeeze the bottle to puff the dust out while the tip is pointing or inserted into the areas needing treatment.
  • Step 3: If a handheld bulb duster is used, remove the cap and fill the compartment halfway with Drione Dust. Place the cap back on and insert the tip of the duster into areas needing treatment while squeezing the bulb to puff the dust.
  • Step 4: Apply Drione Dust to cracks, crevices, and voids where pests hide, such as behind moldings, shelves, and baseboards; in pipe openings; behind and under appliances; behind cabinets and walls; and in crawlspaces and attics. The dust will last for several months if not disturbed. Repeat treatments can be made as needed.

Using Insecticide Dust

Where to Use

Drione Dust Insecticide can be used indoors and outdoors in residential, commercial, and industrial areas. It is ideal for use in schools, homes, apartments, hospitals, restaurants, office spaces, and more.

This product is excellent for reaching hard-to-treat areas under appliances, in wall voids, under sinks, around plumbing or electrical voids, and cracks and crevice areas in furniture, mattresses, porches, attics, and other areas where targeted pests travel and hide.

When to Use

Drione Dust can be applied anytime targeted insect activity is suspected or confirmed. It can also be applied as a prevention measure to avoid infestations.

Safety Information

Drione Dust is safe to use around children and pets when applied according to the product label instructions. Always wear the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) when applying or handling this product.

Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Special Considerations

For Drione Dust to be effective, it must be applied in areas where insects will make direct contact. Drione Dust Insecticide cannot be used in a power duster.

Keith's Pro Tips"With Drione Dust, a little goes a long way. It's not necessary to apply a lot to dust; you really just want to put down thin film that's barely visible. Your targeted pests may actually be repelled by too much dust, so avoid over-applying."
Product DrawbacksDrione Dust is not suitable for broadcast applications for indoor areas. When treating large surface areas such as flooring, we recommend using an aerosol spray such as Novacide.

Worked like a charm!
Can't say enough good things about Drione Dust. It's been incredibly effective for me. I don't know how it works, but I don't care. Just make sure you buy the handheld duster as it helps in aiming the product more precisely where you want it.

Great to reduce/eliminate wasps
I love Drione dust! I use my puffer to apply it into cracks and crevices around our house in early Spring and it has a significant impact on insects. I got it specifically to rid our house of wasps and it is great. I can actually sit on our deck and not be buzz-bothered now!

We had 2 in-the-ground hornets nests that were very close to the house. Used the Drione dust at night and nests were dormant in the morning. Very effective solution.

Drione Dust - the best!
I give the dust 5 stars. I was able to get a small amount of dust into the opening of my aluminium siding, as well as around the hole opening. The next day I didn't see a single hornet, and I didn't really think I had applied enough powder to do the job. I was using a bulb type applicator which doesn't work well when trying to dust with the wand in an upward position. This powder is the best, and believe me, when you have a short application tube on your applicator, you want the best for immediate killing power. It is a little pricey, so don't waste it.
