To be more specific, you will apply this powder into the junction box that contains the electrical outlets and switches. Do not apply it to the receptacle openings.

Hi Diana,
I'm Travis from The Home Depot. Thanks for visiting our site.
To be more specific, you will apply this powder into the junction box that contains the electrical outlets and switches. Do not apply it to the receptacle openings.
The cover plates will need to be removed and then you can apply the dust by pointing the tip of the bottle into the area around and behind the actual receptacle and light switches.
Apply about a teaspoon of dust per switch or receptacle.
The plates are easily removed by removing the one or two screws that attach them to the junction box.
Thank you for asking,
-Travis Read Less

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use. No more gnats I dusted some on the soil in my indoor plants. No more gnats! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] August 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Took care of the problem immediately This is simply the best product of its kind. We use it for ant prevention, and this year we also used it for a problem with earwigs. The product dispenses easily, and takes care of the insect problems, and we don't have to worry about our pets, birds, etc. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] June 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does What It Says: kills bugs I had bed bugs and bought this hoping it would help, it did! Haven't seen one since. I saw a silverfish a few months ago...put more powder down in different places, haven't seen one since! February 25, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ant Killer Product arrived safe and sound. Easy to apply. Too early to know its effectiveness. June 24, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't work! I litterally put this around an ant bed in the yard; days and even weeks later the ants were still trucking along. I was hoping this would be a good natural way to deal with the ants in our yard, but was very disappointed. May 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works quite well. Seems to be very effective on our sugar ants. We still have a few stray sugar ants here and there, but better control then paying for the exterminator to come through and spray 'safe' chemicals all over. Side note, the 7oz bottle’s pour spout is a little ‘tricky’, the product tends to push out of spout in large 'puffs" rather then what I had expected, a smaller steady stream. Therefore just be careful about when you go to dispense. May 14, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TO Florida Users -- Ant Control w Diatomaceous Earth Can't imagine why diatomaceous especially the natural form wouldn't work with ants even in Florida, but its crawling insect control properties must be renewed once the product gets wet. So, in highly humid conditions it could be challenging to use. So, I have a tip that worked for me in San Pedro, CA (in an area just north of Point Ferman, north of the new high school in that area) -- I used Stevia. For a $6.45 bag that then lasted me a year in my tea and smoothie drinks. I sprinkled Stevia out of the bag liberally in the backyard area where the ants' nest appeared to be located. Voila! No more ants through the rainy season etc. This terrible infestation in the backyard that moved into the kitchen and bathroom during summer weather times -- that commercial pest control companies had failed to eliminate -- has not reappeared for at least 5 years now. Stevia application didn't effect the family's pets -- dogs, cats, turtles and other animals that inhabited or walked through the backyard either. I suspect Stevia had the same effect on the insects internal system as diatomaceous earth is described as having (search Wikipedia for "diatomaceous earth") without human respiratory backlash. A win-win! Now, if I could just find a natural solution to the very smart mouse that runs thru my living room each night around 10:30 pm. Cheese in the spring traps, and sticky plastic trays, as well as the Vitamin K pellets have all failed to eliminate this very potentially destructive and dangerous rodent. Any ideas would be most appreciated. August 14, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Will not affect most hard body insects, actually works by causing microscopic cuts on insect larvae. This product will have limited results on the adult population. It works as most preventive care non-toxic materials do, by killing larvae thus preventing a next generation. If you have a serious problem use something stronger to kill those already present, in combination with this destroying both present and future populations. July 6, 2012
