Both of these products should help eliminate bugs from your property; however, knowing which one will work best for you may be difficult since they both have their pros and cons. In this blog post we will compare each product side by side so that you know what to expect before buying!

Short Review of Delta Dust

Delta Dust is a broad-spectrum insecticide that can be used on lawns, gardens and in the home. Delta dust has been shown to kill more than 30 types of insects and spiders including roaches, ants, ticks and fleas. It’s also ideal for dealing with yard bugs such as grubs or chinch bugs. Delta dust is a dry product that leaves behind no mess and it lasts for up to 30 days after application.

Short Review of Drione Dust

Drione Dust, on the other hand, doesn’t last as long; however, it does have longer lasting residual effects than most insecticides. This means you can use Drione in your home or garden without having to retreat every few months like with many other products!

The active ingredient of drione dust is d-phenothrin and there are more than 20 insects and spiders that this chemical will kill including roaches, ants, ticks and fleas when applied correctly. Unfortunately though, because the pest control market has grown so rapidly over recent years there are even some bugs such as bedbugs who may be resistant to the insecticide.

Active Ingredients

In this section we are going to talk about the active ingredients in each product. Drione Pest Insecticide Dust contains Pyrethrins – 1.0%; Piper only Butoxide – 10.0%; Amorphous Silica Gel – 40.0%. On the other hand Delta Dust contains Deltamethrin, 0.05 %.

Target Pests

In this section we are going to talk about the target pests of the two products. Drione Pest Insecticide Dust is a broad spectrum insecticide that kills more than 20 insects and spiders when applied correctly, including Ants, Bees, Bedbugs, Boxelder bugs, Cadelles, Centipedes, Cheese mites, Cigarette beetles, Cockroaches, spiders, drywood termites, fleas, beetles, lice, pillbugs, scorpions, ticks, wasps, and more. Unfortunately though because of how quickly the pest control market has grown in recent years there are some bugs such as bedbugs who may be resistant to this product.

Delta Dust on the other hand targets specific types of pests with its active ingredient Deltamethrin at 0.05 % which not only offers protection against Listed 20+ Insect like Target Pest: Ants, Bed Bugs, Boxelder Bugs, Cockroaches, Crickets, Fleas, Firebrats, Silverfish, Termites, Carpenter Ants, Carpenter Bees, Centipedes, Ground Bettles, Millipedes, Scorpions, Spiders, Sowbugs, Wasps, Bees, Webbing, Clothes Moths, Carpet Beetles, Pantry Pest, Plant Pest, Slugs, and Ticks.

Coverage Area

Delta Dust of1 lb. of Delta Dust covers about 2,000 sq.ft on hard surfaces such as wood, tile or concrete but it can also be applied in cracks and crevices which will not only give you protection against pests listed above but also help reduce insects that live near the floor level like roaches.

It’s important to note though that Delta Dust does have a very specific type of coverage so if this doesn’t fit with how you want things then Drione Dust may work better for you since its application won’t leave behind any residue or cause damage where it’s been treated.

But here’s my favorite part: because Drione Dust doesn’t leave behind residue some people find they are able to get away without cleaning anything up afterward which makes life just a little bit easier!

Do Not Apply Drione Dust in or Around Ventilation, Vents, or Hvac Units, or Food Areas. Always Read the Entire Label Before Use!

Warranty

Delta Dust is guaranteed to kill on contact and has a limited one-year warranty, whereas Drione Dust does not have any guarantees in its claims of effectiveness but it’s good at killing bed bugs once they’ve come into contact with the powder.

Ultimately the choice between these two insecticides should be based on personal preference and desired level of coverage as well as which pests you’re trying to get rid of.

Do Not Apply Drione Dust in or Around Ventilation, Vents, or Hvac Units, or Food Areas. Always Read the Entire Label Before Use!

In Conclusion: The key difference between these two products is how well either one will adhere to surfaces where insects may hide themselves such as crevices or cracks in walls but Drione Dust is a better option than Delta Dust for killing bed bugs on contact.
