How to Use the Bellow Hand Duster for Applying Insecticide Dust


Hi, this is Phillip with Do My Own Pest Control dot com, and today we’re going to talk about the Bellows Hand Duster. It’s a great duster. It’s a great duster. A lot of professionals love using it because it is simple, it holds up well over time.

This is actually a new version of the duster. You’ll notice that it’s clear so you can see how much dust you have in the chamber, which is nice. A couple of features with the Bellows Hand Duster: this is the rubber cap you can take off and fill it with dust.

You want to make sure you fill this duster halfway full with dust. Don’t overfill it or you won’t get the right amount of mixture of air and dust when you’re trying to apply it. It has a rubber tip.

It’s nice if you’re trying to get the dust into electrical outlets when you’re trying to access wall voids. It’s nice to have that rubber tip there to give you some protection in case you accidentally tap a wire.

It also has a cap right here on the end, and you can cap it shut for storage. Finally here on the back of the duster you can actually screw off this back part right here, and that is a rod you can use to clear out the duster if it gets clogged.

When you’re using the Bellows Hand Duster make sure that you hold it upside down. That way your dust sits at the bottom of the duster, and when you’re puffing it, it gets the right mixture of air and dust coming out the end.

Right now we’re going to show you exactly how you do that in your own home. We have the Bellow Hand Duster here. Now when you’re inside you We have the Bellows Hand Duster here! Now when you’re inside want to do a light amount of dust so you want to turn the Bellow Duster upside down, but you’re just going to stick it right here at the front of it and just dust in the wall void.

Just once, that’s all you need. It doesn’t take a lot for the insects to pick up the dust. To access the wall void, you want to have the duster go in between the box and the sheetrock. You can see right here most of the time you will just need the help of a screwdriver to pull the box away from the sheetrock enough for the duster to fit in between it.

Once the duster is in between it, you can just do a couple dusts inside the wall void. That dust will come down and dissipate inside the wall void and catch any insects that are walking down near the floor.

You may have carpet that’s right underneath the baseboard and it’s really tight so you may not be able to do this in every house, but if you have the opportunity to do it, it’s a really great way to get dust right under the wall void where the bugs come out.

So in this situation we do have a gap. As you can tell I can fit the hand duster in between the carpet and the baseboard. So if you do have this opportunity you want to put it under, do a puff of dust about every 12 inches.

Underneath the kitchen sink where the pipes go either into the cabinets or back into the wall is an excellent place to apply dust. Usually there’s slip covers on the pipes. You can just move those up and out of the way, take the duster right into the crack, and now you can dust the void underneath the sink cabinets.

Behind the toilet where the pipe goes into the wall is a perfect place to use the Bellows Hand Duster. hi Anne this is Philip with Devon pest control.com and today we’re going to talk about the bellows hand duster it’s a great duster a lot of professionals love using it because it’s simple it holds up well over time this is actually a new version of the duster you’ll notice that it’s clear so you can see how much dust you have in the chamber which is nice a couple features with a bellows hand duster it this is the rubber cap that you can take off and you fill it with us you want to make sure you filled this duster halfway full with us don’t overfill it or you won’t get the right amount of mixture of air and dust when they’re trying to apply it but it has a rubber tip that’s nice
