    Did I get a bad batch, or is it constant? My Dylox is extremely dusty. Not very responsible on Bayers part.

    Hmm... are you sure you don't have Dylox 5 dust rather than Dylox 5% granular?

    the carrier for dylox is ground-up corn cob, a very light product but dust should not be a problem

    Corn cob is the common carrier that is used in granular products such as dylox. I also use bayleton with know problem which also uses a corn cob carrier, but this stuff was so dusty it was riduculous. Very irresponsible. I didn't know there was such a thing as dylox dust, but this was a corn cob carrier.

    Watch breathing that dust. My only acute pesticide poisoning issue was caused by Dylox dust. Contact Bayer with the date & production code on the bag.

    I wear a full faced respirator when applying.
