An insecticide dust is a dry formulation of a contact insecticide. Dusts are used in different areas such as cracks & crevices, wall voids and other areas where certain bugs are pests. Use insecticide dusts in areas where bugs (bedbugs, ticks, ants) hide and but cannot be treated with a spray. Crack and crevice work is the most common use of insecticide dusts.
Stubborn, ongoing problems with bedbugs, ticks, German Cockroaches are usually the result of crack and crevice work not being done to enhance sprays. A complete integrated pest management approach (IPM) usually involves dusting bug hide-outs.
Insect Growth Regulators or IGR inhibit the growth of immature insects.
If an insect cannot mature into an adult, it cannot reproduce. Flea eggs and larva never reach adult stage; mosquito larvae die before reaching adult stage; roaches and other insects cannot molt properly, which inhibits their ability to reproduce. IGRs can be used alone or used with an adulticide/ insecticide.
