The Bug Duster is a versatile dust applicator that was made with the PCO in mind. From the flexible wand that allows you to maneuver into hard to reach areas while the LED light that is built into the handle shines a light on the area that is being treated, to the large 32 oz. reservoir that allows you to spend more time applying and less time filling, to the battery that lasts several days on a single charge, the Bug Duster allows you to get the job done faster without having to wait around. The 24 in. wand that is connected to the 48 in. hose will let you get to even the hardest places to reach like ceiling tiles, bathroom equipment, and kitchen equipment.

I want to give this 3.5 stars but the rating system won't let me.
PROS- It's a great duster, I love using it. It really allows me to apply the perfect amounts of dust to all sorts of weird places. If you do a lot of dusting, I definitely recommend it. The long wand & light are great features.
CONS- This is really only practical for COMMERCIAL use. The design is so cheap. Its basically built attached to a glorified kids lunch box. The color - BRIGHT RED? Couldn't make it Gray? Black? Brown? The housing is soft, not sturdy. I'm always paranoid that I'm going to break it in the truck. The dust container sits inside a zipper compartment which constantly slides down and makes it loose. If this thing was $200 or less, i'd give it 5 stars... but $400 for a duster inside of a bright red childs lunch box... I just don't know.
Final Thoughts - I operate a bed bug extermination company. I use this thing a lot, so I can justify having it. Ask yourself if you can REALLY put this thing to good use before you buy it.
I have used the bug duster - battery powered dust applicator with food grade diatomaceous earth for 5 years to kill all kinds of bugs around the outside of the house. We have used an exterminator but the carpenter ants were still getting in (we're surrounded by trees). I simply spray it around the foundation of the house and under the deck. I do it after every rain event in case some of the DE has washed away. If there is a nest of ants, I flip over the rock with the duster in hand and spray away. I love the fact that if birds eat the insects, it will not harm them as it is not poison. After 5 years the battery died and I am thrilled batteries are available.
Just did my first service with the Bug Duster. First, the appearance of the Bug Duster is underwhelming at over $400 in cost. You will have to get over the initial feeling that you have been "hosed again with another equipment farce." The Bug Duster worked very well for me and delivered well. I really like the light that is a part of the system. I like the way dust products can be delivered to the target areas in manageable amounts. You can control delivery. Worked great on my first service. Now, we will see if the Bug Duster will stand up over time and abuse. How did Bug Duster makers come up with the price?

Why are there no reviews on this if it has been out five years?
I need a duster, and I watched the videos on this one. The only thing I am concerned about is the fact that there are no reviews on this product. It just seems like a lot to give for a 30 day guarantee and no reviews; however, I liked what I saw in the video. I just live on a fixed income and money is tight. Is there any place on the internet where this product has reviews?
