Short Review of Delta Dust

Delta Dust is a broad-spectrum insecticide used on lawns, gardens, and homes. Delta dust has been shown to kill more than 30 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. Like many other products, you can use Drione in your home or garden without retreating every few months!

The active ingredient of drione Dust is d-phenothrin. This chemical will kill more than 20 insects and spiders, including roaches, ants, ticks, and fleas. Unfortunately, though, because the pest control market has overgrown over recent years, there are even some bugs, such as bedbugs, which may be resistant to the insecticide.

Active Ingredients
In this section, we will discuss each product’s active ingredients. 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 will talk about the target pests of the two products. Drione Pest Insecticide Dust is a powerful insecticide that can kill more than 20 types of insects, including Ants, Bees, Bedbugs, Boxelder bugs, Cadelles, Centipedes, Cheese mites, Cigarette beetles, Cockroaches, spiders, dry wood termites, fleas, beetles, lice, pillbugs, scorpions, ticks and wasps. Unfortunately, because of how quickly the pest control market has grown recently, some bugs, such as bedbugs, may resist 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 pests: 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. Still, it can also be applied in cracks and crevices, which will give you protection against pests listed above and help reduce insects that live near the floor level, like roaches.

It’s important to note that Delta Dust does have a particular type of coverage, so if this doesn’t fit with how you want things. 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 can get away without cleaning anything up afterward, making life a little bit easier! Do Not Apply Drione Dust in or Around Ventilation, Vents, 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. In contrast, Drione Dust has no guarantees in its effectiveness claims. Still, 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, and which pests you’re trying to get rid of. Do Not Apply Drione Dust in or Around Ventilation, Vents, HVAC Units, or Food Areas. Always Read the Entire Label Before Use!

Our Observation
We don’t see a whole lot of difference between these two products. They both seem to work well against a variety of common household pests. However, if we had to choose one, we would probably go with Drione Dust because it doesn’t leave behind any residue and can be applied in various ways. Plus, it works just as well as Delta Dust, if not better.

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