    Q
    Would you recommend Pyrethrin Dust over Diatomaceous Earth powder or are they pretty much the same thing?
    A
    While they are actually very different products, they do pretty much the same job. Pyganic dust is made from pyrethrins and silica gel and MotherEarth D is diatomaceous earth (crushed diatoms). Pyganic dust would need to be reapplied every 6-8 months while MotherEarth D would only need to be reapplied if it were to get wet. Pyganic dust does have a bit of a faster knockdown.

    Q
    How long does PyGanic 1% Pyrethrin Dust keep killing bedbugs after it has been applied?
    I know that the owner will not address this bed bug problem properly, and I really wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. I am scared that seeing it is a low rent that some unsuspecting single mother or elderly person will move in to their worst nightmare. I plan to open up all electrical outlets and treat high and low. It's a carpeted unit, so I have used silica gel under the bedroom carpet in addition to what I plan to treat when this product arrives. Is there hope that I may succeed in killing off the bedbugs? I have very limited money available for treating the bugs, so I chose the powder for financial reasons along with a diatomaceous earth/silca gel to hopefully help the next tenants that may eventually move in. Short of camping in front of the unit to warn new tenants, this is the best I can do. There are still those of us who care for others around us. I would truly hope that someone would care enough about where I may move as well.

    Pyganic dust will keep working for about 6 months after it has been applied. While it shouldn't be the only product you use to treat an infestation in a home you are living in. It can take several days to kill a bedbug that comes into contact with treated areas and will undoubtedly offer some control. It is very admirable that you are looking out for future tenants and your neighbors.

    Q
    How should I use use PyGanic 1% Pyrethrin Dust? Does it kill bed bugs?
    A

    PyGanic 1% Pyrethrin Dust will kill bedbugs. As with almost all dust formulations, it can take about a week for the bedbugs to die after they come into contact with the product, so dusts should not be the only thing you use for bedbug infestations. According to the PyGanic 1% Pyrethrin Dust product label:

    "Bed bugs:
    Take bed apart. Apply PyGanic Dust using a hand duster into joints, channels, cracks and crevices on bed frame, headboards and footboards. Wall mounted headboards and their hardware should be removed and treated. If hollow, square or round tubing, see that the interior framework is well dusted. Mattresses and box springs may be dusted, especially tufts, folds and edges. All furniture and furniture accessories in the room must be treated. Pull carpeting from tack strips and treat under the baseboard, sill plate and under the carpet tack strips. Treat under, behind, and into cracks and crevices of decorative moldings. Apply a continuous visible film to other potential harborage sites: table and wall mounted lamps, wall crevices, electrical boxes, outlet plate covers, switch plate covers, mirrors, picture frames and backs, door jambs, moldings and hinges, window ledges, sills, drapery rods, curtains, blinds and mounting hardware, closet shelving and hardware, picture frame moldings and other crack and crevices in the room should be treated. If Bed bugs are present, treat with an Insecticide approved for use on bed bugs."

    Q
    Is Pyganic Dust safe for dressers?
    I was wondering if PyGanic dust is safe to use for places like dressers where clothes are kept?
    A
    You can use Pyganic dust directly into the cracks and crevices in the dresser, but we do not recommend that you use the dust in the inside of the drawer where you will placing your clothes. You can use Bedlam spray directly in the cracks and crevices in the inside of the drawers and then let the area dry before you replace the clothing.

    Q
    Can you use Pyganic Dust on cushions of chairs?
    A
    We would not recommend using the Pyganic dust on chair cushions. You should only use dust products on areas that will be inaccessible after the dust is applied. For instance, you could apply Pyganic dust to tufts, folds and seams of mattresses because you will put a mattress pad and sheets on the mattress before using it again, making the dust in accessible. We recommend using Sterifab on chair cushions and other sensitive areas.

    Q
    How much does 10 oz of Pyganic dust cover?
    A
    It does depend on what pest you are trying to eliminate and where you are applying the dust. The Pyganic dust product label recommends applying the dust with a hand duster at a rate of 1.5 oz of dust per 50 sq ft. This is a mid rate usage.
