Killing Crawling Insects for Longer Periods of Time
Tags: Residual Insecticide – Insect Powder – Ant Killer Dust
Why Using Insect Killing Powders?
Insect killer dusts have some unique advantages:
- Ease of application and lower cost
- Last for months in dry, undisturbed cracks and voids
- Porous surfaces such as concrete or timber do not absorb dusts (unlike liquids)
- Make life impossible for insects on all treated surfaces
- Offer an ideal solution for treatments in undisturbed spaces, e.g.: under floor boards, kitchen presses, wall cavities, etc.
- They are easily picked up by insect legs and body as they walk across treated surfaces
- Low to no odour
Where Insecticide Dusts are Not Recommended…
Where insect-killing dusts should not be used:
- You should not treat exposed surfaces with insect powders
- Most insect powders are not effective in wet areas and can become ineffective when a treated area gets wet.
- Voids that contain insulation do not permit good penetration of dust throughout the void.
- Insecticide dust is not suitable on floors where young children and pets (cats/dogs) have access.
- Wash hands and exposed skin before meals and after use.
- Prevent access to bait by children and animals.
- Keep in a safe place.
- Hazardous to bees.
- Do not use where food, feed or water could become contaminated.
- Do not contaminate surface water or drains with chemicals or used container.
- Do not re-use container. Store in original container.
- To avoid risks to human health and the environment, comply with the instructions for use.
