Drione Dust does have pyrethrin as one of its active ingredients. When applying any insecticide, you should take great care and concern to not apply it within reach of pets or children. Dust in particular should be applied in areas where it would not be accessible to your cat but also in areas where the dust will remain undisturbed such as behind or underneath household appliances, inside wall voids, and where plumbing enters the home such as underneath kitchen and bathroom sinks.
Drione Dust will kill insects that come into contact with treated areas. It does not contain anything that will attract insects.
Since Brown Recluse spiders are known for hiding in cracks, crevices and hard to reach areas, using Drione or Tempo 1% Dust inside wall voids does provide great control and preventative measures. Treating with Cyper WP will affect the spider directly and also help get ride of the insects that the spiders feed on. Applying Cyper WP indoors and outdoors is recommended. Indoors, spray around all baseboards, door frames, window frames, under appliances, in closets and storage rooms and in areas where utilities enter into the structure. Outdoors you should spray around the bottom of the foundation, on the ground adjacent to the foundation, door frames, window frames and places where the utilities enter into the structure.
Brown recluse spiders are frequently found in and around boxes stored in closets and attics. Boxes in such places should be taped shut to eliminate potential nesting sites. Unnecessary clutter should be eliminated, spider webs removed from interior and exterior areas, and a thorough vacuuming should be undertaken around, under, and behind furniture.
Since the Drione Dust is a powder, you should just vacuum it up like any other powder on a surface. If it was applied too heavily by a pro to your home you need to report the company for mis-use of product. Dusts - when used indoors - should only be used lightly and directly into crevices, not on surfaces out in the open. Soap and water on a scrub brush should pull the product up as well.
Drione Dust will not harm Juniper. Be sure to apply directly to the nest in the cooler times of the day.
Drione dust is labeled for outdoor flea control in lawns. The Drione dust product label (bottom of pg 2) recommends that you use 16 oz per 1,000 sq ft. This type of application can get very expensive and can be washed away when it rains. We recommend you purchase and use our Outdoor Flea Kit which comes with an insecticide to eliminate the jumping biting adults and an Insect Growth regulator to stop the growth cycle of the immature fleas.
Dust mite allergies can cause sneezing, nasal congestion, itchy eyes, respiratory issues, eczema, and most severely, asthma. While you won’t find dust mite bites on your family members, exposure to dust mites in the first year of life can cause a lifelong allergy to this pest, so learning how to kill dust mites is important for your family’s health. A multi-step approach to dust mites treatment is the best course of action to rid your home and prevent dust mite accumulation.

You can spray pyrethrins in the individual holes and then after the application dries dust each of the hoels with Drione dust (the Drione dust will not work when wet). Below is the usual recommendations for cicada killer wasps:
Cicada Killer wasps thrive in disturbed environments, such as landscaped yards and places where bare soil is exposed. You can discourage the wasps from nesting in your yard by cutting your grass on the highest setting and by adding a thick layer of mulch to flower beds during the Cicada Killer Wasp season. These wasps do not like over saturated lawns either, so over watering during their season will help prevent them. Unfortunately, there is no fool proof way to prevent cicada killer wasps. For current infestations, you would need to use Drione in each individual burrow.
We also like to let our customers know that the Cicada Killer wasps are beneficial insects that provide free pest control for a couple months each year. Cicada killer wasps paralyze and provision their burrows with other insects to feed their young. The beneficial Cicada killer wasps, while large and intimidating to see, are mostly harmless and there have been very few reports of anyone getting stung by just being near them. In most cases where a sting was reported, the wasps were being held or molested in some way.
Drione Dust is labeled to treat for ticks. Yes, you would want to use the Bifen IT indoors around the baseboards and cracks and crevices, and then apply the dust. Delta Dust is also labeled for ticks, and is waterproof as well, so if you are using both that might be a better option for your application. You would wat to use the Permethrin product you have for an outdoor application as it is an oil based formulation and could stain some areas. You would want to treat anywhere your dogs go in your yard. We recommend paying special attention to your entrances to your home so that you can get a barrier there.
