    Q
    Is Drione Dust safe to use around ferrets and other pets?
    I have a roach problem, and have a ferret that we let out of the cage often, he can get into the cabinets and in the couch, so I worry about any pesticides that can be used around him. Is this safe to use? Is there another product that is safer to use?
    A

    Drione dust is safe to use around pets only if you place the dust in areas where your pet cannot get to, such as inside wall voids, under appliances and other areas.  It seems to us that if you really want to eliminate your roach problem you may have to limit the ferrets' access and time outside of the cage.  It may take the use of pesticides to eliminate your problem.  Our roach control kit has a very high success rate and will not harm the ferret if the ferret is not let out of its cage while you are treating.

    Q
    How large an area will a pound of Drione cover?
    I have 3 acres, and many yellow jacket in ground and ant hills throughout the yard.
    A
    When using Drione Dust the idea is that you puff the dust into the individual holes.  We would also recommend using the Alpine Yellow Jacket Kit.

    Q
    Will Drione Dust kill carpet beetles?
    Many Carpet Beetles in my home.
    A

    Drione Dust  is not labeled for carpet beetles. For indoor carpet beetle control you may want to consider a product such as Nyguard Plus. This product contains an insecticide to kill the roaming adults and an insect growth regulator to stop the harder to kill immature beetles from reaching a reproductive state which in turn will break the cycle of infestation. As an added bonus this product also contains a deodorizer for carpet applications. Please take a few minutes to read our How to Control Carpet Beetles article for an in depth explanation of how to control this pest.

    Q
    Would any honey found in wild hives that have been treated with Drione Dust be good for human consumption?
    I have a neighbor who had an exterminator spray a few honey bee nest in her barn with Drione dust about 7-9 months ago. The bees are still active. I am considering going remove the bees and put them in hives. Do I need to destroy all honey and comb as I remove the bees?
    A

    We cannot recommend that honey be collected and consumed from a bee hive where Drione Dust was used since this product is not labeled for use on any kind of edible plants, animals, or animal products.
