It works!
The delta dust bundle ended our carpenter bee infestation in under 3 days, this literally saved our siding and facia. We couldn’t be happier.

Works great
They work great. Super diy application
Though, I needed to stay on top of new holes, I finally got the upper hand. The dust and applicator work nicely. I would recommend it to any diy’er.

No more white-footed ants
First time buyer, great price and super fast shipping. Had an infestation of white-footed ants inside the walls of our kitchen and island. Dusted behind the outlets and and got the job done, would highly recommend for inside walls.

ants gone
Had a big problem with flying ants in my apt after the hurricane . I traced them to some small holes around outlet covers . I removed the switch plates shot down some Delta Dust fixed the small openings . Have not seen an ant since.

Excellent product,.. effective!
Had a problem with an army of tiny ants coming up the inside of walls from under the house every spring. Tried everything,.. with some success, but next year they were back by the thousands.
Found Delta Dust,... took two years to get them all, but now for the last two years NO ANTS in my kitchen! Getting up in the morning and dealing with invading ants in the sink and on the walls, trying to get to the cupboards was such a drag,... glad that was resolved.
A great product and a great company to deal with! Thanks!!

Great product
Great product, worked very well on getting rid of yellow jack wasp in air conditioner.

Top-of-the-line pesticide.
I used delta dust by Bayer once. The results are amazing. A very very good pesticide. If you want to kill bugs of any kind, especially roaches and bed-bugs which are two favorites in apartment rentals these days, then this is it!!! It has lasting power. I only wish it lasted for years instead of just 8 month's. But, it works and is way cheaper than calling Orkin.
Review by Dan / (Posted on 8/8/2016)
Job well done!
Paid $200 to Orkin to kill carpenter bees last year. This year I spent $34 and took care of it myself. Easy, effective and economical. Thank you!

Problem solved!
Had a nasty yellow jacket nest between our concrete porch and the house. It was nearly impossible to get to. Spent two months trying about everything I could think of. I probably trapped a couple thousand but they still kept coming. Found Delta Dust and applied using the bellows. I watched gleefully as a handful of dusted, very lethargic yellow jackets flew off. The rest never saw light again. Problem solved!
Review by Jeremy / (Posted on 3/5/2016)
only slowed them down
Unfortunately the bees were very resilient. My husband sprayed dust with the prescribed applicator many times over a 48 hours period. The bees kept flying in and out of the same space and though we found many dead bees it did not seem to eliminate them from their home. They had built it beside our front porch and it did seem as though they quit attacking us and visitors.

Good Product and Good Service-Will use this Company again !
Very happy with this dust. It does what it says it will.
Review by Boaziggy / (Posted on 8/22/2015)
Great results
Nothing feels better than using the same quality products that a professional pest control company uses BUT at a fraction of the cost of their services. I love saving money and doing it myself. THANK YOU for your awesome website and customer service.

Good stuff
I bought the bellows duster and Delta Dust combo. I am happy with both. The bellows duster is easy to use and control. The Delta Dust has taken care of our bugs( Ants and spiders).Stays where it is put and uses very little of it. My wife is happy so I am ecstatic!
Review by Mike / (Posted on 4/14/2015)
Easy to use!!!
This is a great product and a little bit goes a long way. Only thing I would change is the bellow should be more flexible or the tip at an angle to reach weep the screens.

Impressed with the company
I have been ordering Delta Dust for a few years and a few different properties, sending it to my children who are starting out in older apartment buildings with cockroach problems. However, I was particularly impressed when I transposed a new address, putting "300" rather than "800" on the address, and DIY Pest Control sent out a new package without question and without shipping charges, even though the error was mine.

Carpenter Ant hell
Each spring here in the north central Pennsylvania wilds hordes of carpenter ants muster and begin their annual quest to eat our house. Their attacks are defended by a perimeter of Delta Dust, and invariably fail with great numbers of attackers left dead on the field of battle. Carpenter bee larvae meet the same fate. A pox on both their houses.
Review by Tomcat / (Posted on 6/16/2014)
can not beat
I use this around the baseboards & under sofa's, etc. After using there are no more ants, scorpions, cock roches, etc.
Review by Dennis / (Posted on 5/20/2014)
Effective Product!!!
I have used Delta Dust before. Always an excellent and effective product. I recommend a bulb duster and N-95 or higher rated respirator when using dust ( I spoke with 3-M company about this and they recommend n-95 breather, it has a cool vent). Anyway, if you seriously want to get rid of BEDBUGS AND COCKROACHES, then this is the product for you!!! It lasts, it works, and you get results pronto!!!

Fantastic Product for elimination of American roaches
We moved to central GA not long ago only to find our new home had a significant American roach problem (huge pine trees and the property had sat open for quite some time). After contracting a pest control service and having them come out 3 seperate times, the problem wasn't improving. We had a friend recommend "doyourownpestcontrol.com" and found the products we needed ourselves. We began treating our home per the product specifications and IMMEDIATELY we saw improvement. Granted, it was nasty to find dead roaches everywhere, but we took comfort in knowing that they weren't alive in our home anymore. We would recommend this product to anyone. (The only thing we noticed is that our dog did seem to like the powder so we had to be very careful about cleanup as she would go lick vents or areas where we had reached into walls to insert the powder.) GREAT product.

Used on ants and bees - works great
I highly recommend this product for control of ants and bees. Using a bellows only increases the products control of your pests.
Review by RogerA / (Posted on 10/28/2013)
Worked as advertized. Shipped as advertized. I would order again from this supplier.
I had an infestation of yellow jackets inside a wall adjacent to my patio. This was a very large infestation in the wall covered with rough hewn white pine mountain siding with no visible bore holes. I used the bellows and injected the product at the lap layers nightly for three nights. The result was a total kill of the yellow jacket infestation.

Miracle Dust!
I inherited a bug infested brick home with a crawlspace foundation. I knocked out the crawlspace vents that were mortared into the brick and replaced them with removable vents. I purchased the Dustin Mizer and applied Delta Dust through all the crawlspace vents.....it made a fine cloud and totally "bombed" the entire under side of the home. Dust came billowing out of the vent holes for nearly half an hour after application. Immediately inside the home, large palmetto bugs (i.e. giant roaches) were running around sick. We saw dead bugs in the home every morning for days -- 2 weeks later, not one bug has been found dead inside the home. We have gutted the home and found that all the water pipes, drain lines, and gas lines coming in through the floor between the walls were not sealed.....you can literally see the ground from inside. Now we can spray foam where the bugs were getting inside to limit their access to the inside, but with the Delta Dust under the entire house, we have not seen another bug inside. We also used Talstar around the perimeter of the home, but I credit the Delta Dust for the massive wipe-out. We will be religiously applying using Delta Dust every 6-8 months under the house from here on out, and I recommend everyone with a crawlspace foundation home should do the same! It even offers additional termite protection!

Carpenter Ant Dust for voids
this product is extremely effective for all voids (only)! Place a copper penny in it to break up clumps and repel moisture. Be sure to fill it only half way, and don't hammer down on the squeeze, or it will back fire back at you.
