Will yates vegetable dust control all or most pests, and if so is there a puffer pack or blower applicator?

A friend in Melbourne uses yates vegetable dust exclusively. He is happy with the results. I'm impatient and don't like having a myriad of chemicals on hand for specific problems. As a youngster I used Derris dust on everything with pretty acceptable results. I guess I'm looking for a silver bullet to solve all my pest problems. A puffer or blower applicator (so I can get to the underside of leaves) would make life easier for me. What are my chances?

Answer: Yates Vegetable Dust will control a wide range of insects and diseases on vegetables. Even if the underside of each leaf is not well dusted, good results are still obtained. Unfortunately there isn’t a silver bullet spray because not all pests and diseases will respond to one product.
