    Great duster - Cheap construction - Too expensive

    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.

    Works Better Than It Looks

    By John on 01/25/2021

    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?

    Love This Bug Duster

    By Susan on 05/16/2019

    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.
