Roach Dust Insecticides

Many people use roach dusts improperly and do not take the time to carefully read the labels and instructions provided. Not many understand that following instructions will maximize your results. One of the most common mistakes is using the dust in open areas such as cabinets and baseboards. Not only is it hazardous, but this type of application hardly ever works. Most roaches will simply bypass the targeted area by walking around it. Dust insecticides should be applied to cracks, crevices, entry points and hiding places.

Most roach killer dusts include boric acid as one of its key ingredients. Boric acid is considered one of the best ways to get rid of roaches. There are two primary reasons why boric acid is one of the best treatments available. First, roaches cannot develop immunity to the acid. All roaches have a wax coating that keeps in the moisture. The boric acid consumes the wax and ultimately dries out the targeted roach. Second, at times, roaches will carry the boric acid back to its nest. According to EPA, boric acid is so mild that roaches do not realize the threat of the substance until it’s too late.

How to Use Roach Killer Dusts

When applying roach dust insecticides, it is recommended to utilize a hand bellows type duster, for this will improve your results. Simply pour a certain amount into the duster and “puff” away around the targeted area. Theses puffs will create clouds of products that will cling to the interior surface. Each puff is a light coat of dust insecticides which will be under the radar when roaches crawl by. Not aware of the dust insecticide, roaches will inevitably die.

The trick is to know where to use the roach killer dust. Roaches like warmth so your best bet is to spread the roach killer dust in corners and crevices near food sources in your home. Further, if you spot a roach near a certain area that looks like it could be a nest, applying roach dust in that area would definitely be a good idea. No matter how bad you think your roach infestation is, roach killer dust from Pest Mall is sure to get rid of all your worries.

Q. how to get rid of roaches in an old apartment building, they reappear everytime it gets warm, no matter what i use.
What are the best products to use to keep them out of my kitchen? They appear between walls, sink and stove.
A.   Roaches in an apartment building is difficult to treat because they can travel from unit to unit. Tenants should be proactive in keeping apartments clean and maintaining pest control. We recommend the Dupont Advion Roach Gel Bait or the Maxforce Magnum Roach Bait Gel. Baits are effective because the active ingredient can be passed from cockroach to cockroach. Baits should be applied to areas like behind appliances like the refrigerator and stove, underneath cabinets, under sinks, behind toilets, behind the laundry machines, and etc. Please refer to the label for application rates. If you have any further questions or comments, please feel free to contact us again.

Q. WHY ROACHES KEEP APPEARING AFTER AN MONTH USING DEMON WP INSECTICIDE? i AM LIVING IN AN APARTMENT...
A.   There are a lot of circumstances that can lead to a reinfestation. If you live in an apartment building, it is especially hard to control roaches because you share wall voids with your neighbors that might be infested. Regardless, you may be experiencing a reinfestation because Demon WP is just not sufficient enough. Often times, contact kill insecticides like Demon WP only provides short term control. Baiting will be the best way to try and get rid of their nest along with the roaches that live in the nest or colony. A dust insecticide inside the wall void may also help you.

Q. roaches in apartment
I do not have roaches but I do live in an apartment complex and so would like to be vigilant. I am planning on sprinkling boric acid in cracks and crevices of my home as a step towards prevention (and to also rid myself of the occasional spider beetle I see). I know that bait gels and stations are meant to attract roaches; would it act as a way of bringing roaches into my home rather than keeping them out in this case?
A.   Unfortunately, there is no real way to prevent a roach infestation. Baits are also made to eradicate and not prevent. We do not think that baits will help you in a prevention type of treatment. The best thing to do is to keep up with regular maintenance and sanitation so that you do not have any real food sources that attract roaches. In the wall voids, we recommend using dust insecticides like Delta Dust and for the ouside perimeter, we recommend using liquid concentrate sprays that must be applied once every 2-3 months, like LambdaStar 9.7% CS.

Q. Re: german roaches
A.   German roaches usually nest indoors, therefore it will be important to begin treatment from inside the house. Most likely you will have begun to see the infestation in the kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room area. German roaches like to live close to a water source. We would recommend using any roach bait gels such as Maxforce FC Magnum.

Q. I live in a small studio & 99% of problem is in my bathroom, especially the bathtub/shower. Thought roaches were coming in from shower drain (BTW my apt bld is infested w/ roaches) but it finally dawned on me to unscrew the plate that covers around the shower faucet handle. Wasn't able to see any roaches back there but there's a huge black void back there. Unfortunately the opening where I could see the void is small so I sprayed Suspend Sc Insecticide up, down, sideways, the best I could around two weeks ago. At its worse I'd say It got to the pt where I've seen up to 4 to 6 roaches a day in my bathroom. The SC definitely helped but every couple of days I still see maybe ONE now. I have this DeltaDust Insecticide that I haven't used, but I hear it's not a good idea to mix insecticides. I guess my ? is is it a good idea to mix the two? If so the only place I can use the dust is in areas near the opening where faucet is or unless I puff the dust in the air back there in the void. What do you think?
A.   If you are going to be using the faucet, I would not recommend that you apply these insecticides in those areas. Instead I would recommend the use of bait gels for the German roaches.

Q. I have the Crusader Hand Duster and I filled it up 1/2 way with DeltaDust Insecticide to dust 4 german roaches. Finished dusting & I still have about a 1/4 left. 2 quick questions: how do people funnel the remainder back into the original container? And how do you go about cleaning the puffer after you use it? Thanks
A.   You could simply dump the rest of the dust on a piece of paper and funnel it back into its original container. You can also clean out the duster by running it under warm water.
