Not what I Expected
I bought this dust based on the reviews. I was trying to kill yellow jackets under my siding. I also bought the bellows duster. I applied at night several times over the course of two weeks. The only yellow jackets I managed to kill we're the ones I could dust directly. The ones under the siding and in the wall remained live despite my efforts. Before I decided to drill a hole from the inside of the house, I fortunately called an exterminator. He sprayed a chemical gas first that is able to get further into the wall from the outside, then to my surprise he used the same bellows duster I had but used a stronger chemical. Within days, the yj were dying off and are continuing to come out of the wall and drop dead on the porch within minutes. He said I was doing all the right things myself but the dust wasn't strong enough. Of course he is a licensed exterminator and gets the better dust. Overall, I probably wouldn't buy D Fence dust again.

Good Product
Used it on carpenter ants entering an access point of the exterior wall, and they disappeared after a few days. When I replaced the rotted board, there were no ants left inside the crevice.
On the other hand, I dusted another area where I saw bees entering under the porch steps (could not see the nest) and the bees are still there.
Overall, I am satisfied with this product.

Yellow jackets in and from vinyl siding
This product did not work to keep yellow jackets from behind vinyl siding, squirted all around area they were entering and directly in and behind vinyl. Some hovered around and some went right back in? right through, on, over the dust and all ended up re entering. Just a side note that I could not see the nest nor could I spray the nest.

DIY RESPONSE: Dust is the slowest form of insecticide and can take a long time to kill the insects. Dusts have their place in a pest management program when you can place the dust in a place where it will stay undisturbed by weather. If you see no improvements call us at 1-800-476-3368.

Works fine
Dusted the powder into the entry hole used by the wood boring bees. They never came back.

Not good for Brown Recluse
I am not a review writer normally; but my experience tonight lead me back here. My buying experience was great; but the product is not good for my needed application. I actually caught a mature Brown Recluse tonight in a jar. I covered it with the dust. 3 hours later it was still alive and well. Very disappointed.

DIY RESPONSE: Sorry you're not finding success with D-Fense. Dusts are the slowest acting form of insecticide that you can use. It is very persistent and will eventually kill the spider but it may take a day or two.

Cheaper than Delta
The sales rep told me this is the same stuff as delta dust. I've used delta dust for years with good results. Since this is the same I'm expecting the same results. 4 stars since I havent finished applying it.
