How It Works

Bayer Ant & Wasp Dust employs a double-pronged method of attack to control nuisance ants. The pack can either be squeezed gently to puff the insecticide dust into the entrance of the nest, or a thin layer of dust can be applied along the tracks where the ants pass. Either way, the ants collect the dust on their bodies as they move along, with every ant becoming an unwitting carrier of the insecticide.

How to use

Directions for use

This is a ready to use dust; no further mixing or dilution is required. This product kills ants and wasps on contact. DO NOT apply in wet or damp areas as the product will not be effective. The simple-to-use pack allows easy and targeted application of the dust. Open the nozzle and apply the dust to surfaces by lightly squeezing the container. For best results apply the dust as a light even application to the surface (10g/m2). Heavy application will not improve results.

Ant Nest – Insert nozzle into nest entrances and lightly squeeze the container to deliver dust deep into the nest tunnels. A light application should be applied which allows ants to move through the dust and distribute it further into the nest.

Ant activity outside the nest – Lightly apply to areas of ant activity eg. ant trails, into cracks in pavers, holes in brickwork and mortar etc. where ants are seen.

European Wasp Nest – Apply powder through entrance holes (125 – 250 g of product may be needed per nest depending on size of nest and number of entrance holes). Treat at night whenever possible to avoid being stung. Wear protective clothing to prevent being stung (eg. long-sleeved overalls buttoned at wrist and throat, gloves, hat and bee-veil).



DO NOT use on edible plants. DO NOT allow pets or children to enter treated areas. Dangerous to fish. DO NOT allow chemical containers or dust to get into drains, sewers, streams or ponds. Remove or cover fish tanks during treatment. Dangerous to bees and reptiles. DO NOT apply directly on humans, pets, exposed food, food preparation areas or food utensils.
