Sturdy and easy-to-use, the Pest Pistol® shoots powder right where you need it. Dust nearly invisible cracks and crevices or shoot clouds of powder into huge voids. It allows you to eradicate, not just control pests.
ROACH ASSAULT STRATEGIES
This is the short course on how to kill roaches any place, any time. These are techniques used by some of the best professional exterminators, and they really do work. Now you can eradicate, not just control pests.
Can you out-think a roach?
Of course you can--if you do not underestimate your opponent.
Low and non-toxic insecticides depend on wide dispersion in areas roaches live.
They don't work as fast as sprays, but that's a function of the reasons why they kill when toxic sprays often merely chase.
Visualize the dark voids between the walls. You want the critical voids to be white with a fine layer of powder.
"FILLING" THE VOID
Hold Pest Pistol® upright in both hands. Press firmly three to four times at each void access. You should feel and hear the powder moving rapidly through the nozzle and into the void.
Were you to squeeze the Pest Pistol® correctly in an open area, you would see a cloud of dust spread out five feet or more in front of you. A second squeeze would push it farther still.
THAT is what you want to happen within the wall. The result is a fine layer of powder throughout the void.
In homes, and in apartments where some roaches are visible in daytime, use 1 lb. Double that for badly infested units.
Roaches don't have large territories so it's easy to miss a particular nest's territory entirely. But since roaches never venture more than eight feet from their nests, this narrows it down. If you're doing this for someone else and a resident complains of roaches 2-3 weeks after your first application, insist on an EXACT description of where the roaches were seen. Then treat the logical voids.
Roaches will try to outsmart you. They may nest between frame and cork of a bulletin board. Or live underneath a refrigerator and never touch the treated floor below (fortunately a good boric acid product or diatomaceous earth product is fine enough to adhere electrostatically to the bottom of nearly any surface).
Roaches even breed in attics, particularly in humid areas, and nest on drop ceilings. Perimeters of drop ceilings can be dusted.
Check your installation in two to three weeks. Find out if anything's still crawling, and where. Then think like a roach and kill it.
Practice with the Pest Pistol® makes perfect. Often it is the easiest, quickest and best tool. If you will be treating a lot of apartment units, for example, use two or three Pest Pistols® so you save time filling them with powder.
You've selected the safest, surest and most economical method of ridding your life of roaches. Use these directions--and your head--and you'll win this war.
The Pest Pistol - A necessity for integrated pest management
While it's best to start with a powder that's fluffy and light (and contains an anti-caking agent), you can fix powders. If you live in an area with high humidity, powder with no anti-caking agent may clump up again in a few days, so you may want to process only what you'll be using right away.
These instructions are ONLY for food-grade powders, like diatomaceous earth. Processing powders with insecticides like pyrethrums should only be done by a manufacturer under controlled, safe conditions.
With a dry, properly processed powder, you can shoot all day with a Pest Pistol® and never get a clog.
First, keep your powder dry. Store in an air-tight container.
1. Run the powder through a flour sifter.
2. OR: Run through a food mill, like those used for making jam.
3. OR: Clamp a piece of screen around the bottom of a tube, such as a short piece of 4" PVC pipe. Insert a paint brush and twist to make the powder fall through. If it's still too course, use two pieces of screen clamped so that the holes don't line up.
4. "Blank" tips--with no hole--are available through some Pest Pistol® distributors (Part No. M05). These can be drilled from the INSIDE OUT with a 7/64-inch (or 1/8-inch) bit for a larger hole. This does not, however, stop the filter in the base from clogging.
