  • Placer mining operations 1960s
    I enjoy watching the television shows about mining in Alaska…. May I say they are nothing like this video shows about mining in the 60s. I know that I have said on some of these videos that my back aches watching people work so hard…. When I watched this one, I not only thought that […]

postheadericon Diatomaceous Earth (DE) Applicators

I am often asked what I use to apply diatomaceous earth (DE). I think it depends on what you are using it for. I have DE in a jar with a tight fitting lid in my kitchen for me to be able to easily scoop it into whatever I am going to mix it with for me to eat. I also have an old Parmesan cheese container that makes a perfect shaker when I want to spread a light dusting of dirt somewhere.

I am going to talk about a couple of different types of applicators and they are all able to be purchased when you get your dirt from the same place that I get mine. Earth Works Health

Pest Pistol Powder Duster


The Pest Pistol can be used to apply dusts such as diatomaceous earth to insect hiding places. Includes a pointed applicator tip to reach cracks and crevices. Quick and easy to fill —just dip the accordion applicator into product to be applied. Holds about 1/2 lb of any powder. An interior filter helps prevent clogging- If powder clogs duster, sharply tap base of duster opposite the nozzle on a hard surface. The pest pistol is made from plastic so it won’t rust.

Can be used in two ways:
1. Invert duster for light crack and crevice applications.

2. Hold upright for wide dispersion in wall and ceiling voids.

Great for easy dispensing of DE on carpets, pets, ant hills, etc. One side opens to large shaker holes while the other side opens to allow larger amounts to be dispensed–even with a spoon. Screw on/off cap and large opening make for easy filling.

Dustin-Mizer Powder Duster

This works well and is a great way to dust your flowers and shrubs. Also works good for fogging large areas for insects. Included is a removable deflector to help get DE on the bottoms of plants also. The easy-to-turn handle sifts any powder into a column of moving air, which assures even, thorough coverage.

Hudson Bak-Pak Duster Sprayer


Can’t you just see yourself with this on your back…. Gotta Love It!
It works just like a backpack leaf blower only you fill the tank on top with powder and it dusts large areas quickly and efficiently. This works great for barns, renovating homes and dusting attics and any large area you want to treat for bugs with diatomaceous earth or any powder or granule. Attachments are included to set up as a liquid sprayer also. This blower has a 2.4 HP 2 cycle gas engine and a 3 3/4 gallon holding tank.
