Hi there :
Really find value in the videos you have on Youtube. Good job with them.
My question is regarding an unfortunate Carpenter Ant problem I have. I can hear them distinctly in the wall in my office and they can be so loud that I cannot concentrate.
I would like to find a duster with a small tip so I can inject dust into pre-drilled holes in the wall. I was hoping to keep the holes I drill into the wall 3/16″ of an inch or smaller.
I am aware of the Crusader and the Centro Bulb. The Crusader’s tip is about 1/4″ and I feel that is a bit too big for making holes in the wall and stud. The Centro Bulb has a Curved Tip on the end which I do not think would fit into the small holes I want to drill into the wall.
Do you have any thoughts on getting dusts into the Carpenter Ant nest in my wall studs?
Thanks for your time, David.
Both the CRUSADER and the CENTROBULB dusters have extension tubes which are wider than 3/16″. But the actual opening through these extensions is much smaller.
In fact, I just now measured the opening on my Crusader and it’s about 1/16th of an inch or at most, just over it. Certainly less than 2/16th’s.
That means if you were to lay the tip flush over the holes you make, you should be able to direct the dust into the holes with little if any over spray of the DRIONE. And even if some did spill out sideways, it can easily be cleaned with nothing more than water and a paper towel.
I have actually used it to dust through very small holes so I know it can be done. But if you’re not comfortable trying, consider getting the drione in a can known as PT-230. This comes with a small tube straw that is smaller than 3/16th’s of an inch. This means you’ll be able to fit the tube easily into the holes you’re willing to make. So too treat, you’ll just have to slide the tube in the hole and press the actuator. PT-230 is ideally suited for small jobs but even in this case, if you know where the nest is located you should be able to get it covered with just one can.
