Bed Bug Control Dusts and PowdersBed Bug Dust

While bed bug killing sprays are an effective method of bed bug control, when you have a heavy infestation of bed bugs, spray alone may not be able to eradicate an entire family of them. As pest control experts, we recommend tackling bed bug control through as much effective methods as possible, and another solid method of bed bug control are bed bug dusts, which have several advantages over sprays when it comes to eliminating a large population of blood-sucking bed bugs. Here we will cover the types of bed bug dusts and powders and why they are such a significant method of bed bug eradication.

Types of Bed Bug Dusts

Natural Dusts and Powders

If you are a person weary of chemical products that have the potential to be harmful to pets and children, there are a variety of popular insecticide products that have natural ingredients that are only harmful to insects like bed bugs. A few popular examples of natural dusts and powders includes Diatomaceous Earth and Pyrethrin dusts. These are environmentally safe products that come from sources from nature. Diatomaceous Earth for example is formulated from ingredients from soils derived out of the Earth’s crust. Pyrethrin dusts contain pyrethrin which is natural extracted from the chrysanthemum flower which contains natural ingredients which are lethal to various insects.  

Each of these produce a harmful effect on bed bugs that are lethal. has a different effect on the bugs, both of which are lethal. Diatomaceous Earth-based dusts and powders work by causing devastating damage to the protective outer shell of an insect, which ultimately results in the insect becoming dehydrated and suffocating to death. Pyrethrin on the other hand targets the nervous system of bed bugs and other insects, which results in the affected insect losing control of vital bodily functions which lead to a total breakdown and death when the bug can no longer function normally any longer. Products that contain these active ingredients are devastating and fatal to bugs but they are completely safe to use around humans and pets due to the fact that neither have the physiology necessary to be harmed or poisoned by these ingredients.

Chemical Dusts and Powders

Chemical dusts and powders contain man-made formulas designed to be lethal to bed bugs. One of the more popular brands of bed bug dusts is Tempo Insecticide dust. This dust is made from the same ingredients as the popular liquid sprays made by Tempo but in dust form. Dust insecticides sometimes are more effective in certain bed bug infestation situations because they can easily be applied to hard to reach areas like cracks and crevices without losing it’s bed bug killing strength like some liquid insecticides do when they dry out.
