The Most Effective Method for Dispersing Nontoxic Diatomaceous Earth.
From ants to bedbugs, and cockroaches to fleas. Whose house is it anyway? Yours? Theirs? The battle for supremacy never ends, and it can be so frustrating dealing with infested food, bug bites, and itchy pets. But resorting to toxic and poisonous chemicals and sprays is the LAST thing you want to do. Why put your loved ones at risk when there’s a great alternative?
Diatomaceous Earth (DE Powder) has become known as a great nontoxic, nonpoisonous insecticide. It’s safe for humans, but absolute death for insects. But there is one major drawback. When it comes to dispersing and dusting by hand, it’s often imprecise, inefficient, and messy.
The solution: Dr. Killigan’s Insect Buster: an incredibly sturdy DIY duster that is made for DE Powder dispersal.
•It's easy to use (invert, aim, and squeeze in the desired location).
•It’s easy to fill (funnel included).
•And easy to store with your DE Powder inside.
With its enlarged design (holds 14 ounces of powder) the Insect Buster is great for larger projects, indoor use, but also can be used for tight spaces. Use it with the curved tip, or add the extension rod for those hard-to-reach crevices.
Don’t let insects rule your home. Stop bug bites. Sleep better at night. Get rid of the gross with Dr. Killigan's Insect Buster. Our satisfaction guarantee eliminates any risk to you, and it follows our creed of “Killing Them Softly” meaning that nothing harsh or toxic is used.

Q1: How long should I leave DE Powder out before cleaning it up?
For maximum results, We recommend at least 24-48 hours before cleaning.
Q2: Can I clean it with a vacuum?
It is not recommended, unless you have a HEPA filter on it; it can ruin your vacuum.
Q3: Does it have to be “food grade?”
No. But if you are using it in your kitchen, it is ideal to go with food grade DE. Insect grade DE should not be used around food.
Q4: Can I use “swimming pool” DE powder?
No. This is unsafe and ineffective; do not use this inside or around food.
Q5: How does DE powder work?
DE dehydrates insects rather than kills them with insecticidal toxins. That said, it takes time for the dehydration process to take place. DE is not a “dead, on contact” solution, but it is very effective. Use breathing protection to protect your lungs from irritation.
Q6: How long does it take to work?
It starts to work immediately, but since it works by dehydrating insects, it usually takes about 48 hours to fully take effect.
Q7: The DE powder is clumping, what do I do?
Diatomaceous Earth is a very fine powder and clumps very easily. This can result in small inconsistencies in flow with most powder applicators on the market. To avoid this, place a marble in the bulb when filling, and shake periodically to break up any small clumps. A coin also works.
Q8: What is the additional brass rod for?
It’s an “extension rod”. Use it to get into those hard-to-reach places. Just unscrew the curved brass tip from the aluminum lid and thread the extension rod in its place. Now add the curved top to the nut-connector at the end of the extension rod and viola!
