Maggie's Farm Bed Bug Killer Dust is a desiccant dust that has no odor and will not stain. Provides fast control and kills pyrethroid-resistant bed bugs, as well as ants, cockroaches, firebrats, silverfish, spiders, mites, lice, fleas, ticks, and pantry and fabric/clothes beetles and moths. When pests contact Maggie's Farm Bed Bug Killer, the dust clings to their exoskeleton and absorbs the waxy coating, causing death from dehydration. Lasts up to ten years undisturbed.

It's still too early to tell a sufficient story, but it goes a long way and spreads well. I didn't have any signs prior and put it around to be sure. I will not put it on me while sleeping, nor will I sprinkle it onto the sheets that I lay. We'll see soon hotter and wetter weather coming here now at 99 degrees F. I notice the dirt-fly's are getting weird stopping on the walls to be smashed, chigger's are going wild and won't leave me alone at the computer.
