The JT Eaton Insecticide Red Duster is a great tool to use in eliminating pests and bugs in wall voids, light switch and other hard to reach areas. This product can perfectly hold 1.2 oz of diatomaceous and 5 oz of boric acid. The nozzle is about 6.5 inches long. It features an O-ring which helps reduce powder leakage. It also has an internal spring for easy application and avoiding any leakage from the duster. It also comes with an end cap that fits over the adjustment screw for added protection. The end cap slides on the delivery spout and it will help avoid leakage during transport. It comes with a cleaning rod for convenience. This duster has a red powdercoat finish for easy identification.
JT Eaton Insecticide Red Duster can be used upright, inverted, or sideways so it will allow you to have control during application.
To use this duster remove the rubber stopper and fill it about half full with your dust of choice. Insert the stopper and flip the duster over so that the rubber stopper is facing down and the metal spout is at the top. Now squeeze it to produce a fine puff of dust that looks like smoke. Hint: Place a coin inside the duster to break up clumps when you shake it.
Purchased this duster back in January , Very good quality, tough & reliable and the push rod that comes with it is very handy just in case the dust clots the duster. I also use a marble to help break up the dust in the container. Would definitely consider buying another one.
I would recommend this duster because it is very easy to fill and use. I used it to dust under my big bush in my front yard. I was raking leaves and thousands of tiny black ants appeared. I ran into my house and grabbed it and filled it with powered insecticide dust and dusted all around and bottom of bush. I got rid of them instantly.
This product is a great piece at a great price. It is easy to use and, after a little practice, you are able to lay down dusts and powders without putting a lot of dust in the air. The rubber guarded tip gets it in, and under, tight spaces and, the duster(red or green in color) will fog a room if that's what you need. We payed $35.00, but I saw this exact item listed for a lot more. Also shipping was free and fast from domyownpestcontrol. Thanks.
We purchased the JT Eaton Insecticide Red Duster to apply Tempo 1% Dust in a yellow jacket nest under our equipment shed. The Duster was easy to fill, and easy to use following their instructions. We were a bit apprehensive that the attached wand might be too short, but our worry vanished as soon as we made the first puff into the nests hole. It was fast and projected quite forcefully, coating everything with the first 2 pumps. 4 pumps total and we were done. Extremely pleased with its ease of use and cleanup.
It appears that I bought the wrong type of duster for my application in the soffit on my house. It did not have a long enough nozzle to reach from the ladder so I extended it with a 2 foot piece of clear plastic tubing...it did not disperse very good and the 60 degree angle I held it at was no help either...the duster worked great when kept even (level) with no extension tubing on the nozzle.
Will the JT Eaton Insecticide Red Duster spray liquids on termites?
I want to use borax in hot water (1 tsp per cup of hot water) to get rid of termites that accumulated in a garbage bag full of wood chips that I intended to use for compost. Will this device spray that liquid or is it only for powders?
No, the JT Eaton Insecticide Red Duster is only for dry dust applications, not for any liquids. Keep in mind that termites in your compost may help break down any woody material there more quickly for you.
Can the JT Eaton Insecticide Red Duster be used to apply baking soda?
I'm trying to get baking soda on inside walls of toilet bowl for natural cleaning.
Yes, the JT Eaton Insecticide Red Duster can be used to apply baking soda. You would just want to be sure that your place a small pebble or coin inside with the baking soda so that it can break up any clumps that may occur.
