PT Alpine Pressurized Insecticide is a Reduced Risk non-repellent aerosol for control of crawling and flying insects. All Alpine formulations contain the active ingredient dinotefuran, a new non-repellent to the pest control industry that the EPA has granted reduced-risk status for public health use. PT Alpine Pressurized Insecticide aerosol is a contact kill (non-residual) insecticide for use as a crack and crevice, void, spot, or injection treatment for the listed Insects.
Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol is a pressurized insecticide with the Reduced-Risk and non-repellent active ingredient dinotefuran. Dinotefuran works through contact and ingestion and disrupts insect nervous systems for fast, effective control. Dinotefuran is a newer active ingredient in the class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, disrupting the insects’ nervous system and causing paralysis and death. Products with dinotefuran, such as the PT Alpine line, are granted an official “Reduced Risk” status by the EPA.
Dinotefuran kills pests on contact. Pests must be directly contacted at time of application in order to be effective. Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol is a reduced risk nonrepellent aerosol, so it should be considered effective as a contact spray only.
Ants, carpenter ants, bed bugs, Asian lady beetles, boxelder bugs, crickets, stored product pests, pantry pests, roaches, silverfish, fruit flies, phorid flies, stink bugs.

Target Uses of Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol
Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol is a versatile and unique ready-to-use insecticide. Use Alpine aerosol for contact kill, crack and crevice treatments, and injection treatments for a variety of common pests, including ants, roaches, and spiders. Alpine is a non-repellent insecticide, meaning it can be used in conjunction with baiting programs or with residual non-repellent insecticides, and is a great spray for ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs. Because of its Reduced Risk EPA status, Alpine is a great choice for sensitive environments, especially in areas where the use of residual sprays is prohibited or undesirable.
Unlike many aerosols, Alpine can be used for outdoor spot treatments, direct treatment of ant nests and trails, and for carpenter ants in trees, stumps, utility poles, and fences. Use the included straw for crack and crevice, spot, or injection treatments.
Alpine PT Aerosol will have a fast knockdown and kill time. Dinotefuran is a non-repellent, so Alpine PT Aerosol is effective primarily as a contact kill: it has no further insecticidal properties once the spray application is dry.
Use Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol where listed pests are found or known to harbor for contact, flushing, void, or injection treatments.
Crack and Crevice Treatment:
Use with the supplied actuator and injection tubes or other aerosol equipment. Place injections into cracks, crevices, holes and other small openings where insects may be harboring, living and breeding. For light infestations, move injection tip along cracks while treating at the rate of 3 ft/sec. For heavy infestations, move injection tip along at 1 ft/sec. For closed voids, calculate the void’s cubic area and treat at the rate of 1-5 sec/3 cubic ft. Several holes may be required in long-running voids. Reapply as necessary.
Use with the supplied actuator and injection tubes. Hold container upright while spraying. Direct nozzle approximately 12” from surface to be treated. Apply directly on insects in these locations when possible. Reapply as necessary.
***Always read the product label completely before use***
Exact yield will vary with use because this is a ready-to-use product. The large 20 oz. can yields many applications.
Standard Application Rates:
*3 feet/second, 1 second at a time – Light infestations
*1 foot/second, 1 second at a time – Heavy infestations
*5-10 seconds per 3 cubic feet – Void applications
*5-10 seconds per hole – Foraging carpenter ants, argentine ants

In and around Apartments, Campgrounds, Homes, Hospitals, Hotels, Motels, Non Food Areas (Meat Packing and Food Processing Plants, Restaurants, Supermarkets), Nursing Homes, Resorts, Schools, Transportation Equipment (Buses, Boats, Ships, Trains, Trucks, Planes (do not use in aircraft cabins)), Utilities, Warehouses, and other Commercial and Industrial Buildings.
Crawling Insects: Apply as a Crack & Crevice or spot treatment where insects are harboring, traveling or breeding. Reapply as necessary. For example, openings around pipes and sinks, under refrigerators, pantries, behind baseboards, washing machines, stoves, cabinets, sewer, floor drains and meter boxes. In commercial areas, apply as a Crack and Crevice or spot treatment in office areas, stainless steel equipment, shelving, machinery, storage areas, pallets, and other areas where insects may be harboring, traveling, breeding or entering the structure.
Bed Bugs: Apply as a Crack & Crevice or spot treatment where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, box springs, inside empty dressers, clothes closets and carpet edges, high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use this product on mattresses, pillows, bed linens or clothes. Remove all clothes and other articles from dressers or clothes closets before application. Allow all treated areas to dry thoroughly before use. Reapply as necessary. Not recommended for use as sole protection against bed bugs. If evidence of bed bugs is found in/on mattresses use products approved for this use.
Fruit and Phorid Flies: Treat cracks, crevices, voids, holes and small openings where these insects may be harboring, traveling, breeding or entering the structure as adults or larvae. Pay particular attention to breeding sites and areas containing debris. Spot treatment to surface resting sites not associated with food or food preparation areas, of the adults, is permitted. Treatment of the catch basin area of drains is permitted. Crack and crevice or spot treatment to the walls under manhole covers is also permitted. Do not spray product directly down into drains or sewers. Reapply as necessary.
Treatment of the Structure from the Outside: Treat where listed insects may be harboring, traveling, breeding or entering the structure. For example, weep holes, under siding, wall voids, soffits, around attic vents, cracks and crevices, openings around windows, doors and pipes and landscape timbers. Treatment of infested fences and tree holes is permitted. Direct treatment of ant trails is permitted.
To Kill Foraging Carpenter Ants Living Inside Trees: Determine the highest and lowest elevation of the colony. Drill holes into colony at highest elevation and inject 5-10 seconds. Do the same for lowest elevation. Drill intermediate holes every 4 ft. between the upper and lower elevations if required. Foraging carpenter ants must be directly contacted at time of application to be effective. Contact as many ants as possible. Non-residual treatment. Reapply as needed.

The Alpine spray I bought for Stink Bugs is effective. I spot spray the pests on our porch and door. It doesn't kill them instantly but in a couple of hours I have dead Stink bugs laying all around. I spray around the perimeter of the door and it seems to keep them away for a couple of days. I started using it in the Spring and have only seen a few that did sneak into the house compared to last year. I don't use the spray in the house. FYI, the Alpine dust that I bought didn't seem to work effectively.
Fantastically effective product! My summer camp has had carpenter ants in one wall for many years. Treated the wall with 2 cans of Alpine over several weeks in August. Killed hundreds of ants. Only a few were emerging after last treatment. Now (end of September) applied another half can. NO ANTS EMERGED. - I think we've got 'em - at least for this year....
Using the straw, I applied pin holes to the inside ceiling to get to the carpenter ants in a rotted wood corner. The roof had been replaced 2 years ago but the ants took advantage of the rooftop air conditioner for water ponding on the side pop outs. The roof did not leak but had very small holes on the side trim. The ants had enough to eat from tree dirt on the roof and plenty of water and remained undetected for two years. I put Advance Carpenter Ant bait on the roof and under the camper with Entice bait. Alpine took out the nest, we could hear the ants above the master bed, crunching on the wood. after treatment - silence. I am a licensee PA Tech
Sorry, it has taken a while to respond. I have been out of town. This is the second time I have ordered this product and have received it with no crevice wand. The spray goes everywhere except for the intended crevice. Please mail. Thanks! Catherine
Is Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol effective in bedbug control?
How does Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol compare with Suspend SC?
Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol has just recently hit the market and is labeled for bedbugs. This product has been tested by several universities and has an excellent efficacy rate. Alpine PT is not a synthetic pyrethroid like the Suspend SC, therefore bedbugs have shown no resistance to it at all. The only downside is that it cannot be used on mattresses or other furniture like the Suspend SC.
Which product has a longer residual, Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol or PT 221L? Which would be better to treat for roaches?
Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol is a contact kill (non-residual) insecticide for use as a crack and crevice, void, spot, or injection treatment for listed pests. PT 221L Residual Aerosol has a long residual (3-4 weeks) and is labeled to control a wide variety of insect pests including roaches. For more information on controlling roaches, please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Roaches for a successful eradication program. We would suggest the products in one of our Roach Control Kits.
Does Alpine PT Aerosol work on the brown stink bug?
Yes, Alpine PT Aerosol will kill any insect that is applied to or any insect that walks over it while the residual is still active. However, since it is a non-repellent insecticide, it does not have a very quick knock-down. We have many products that are labeled for stink bugs, which you can find on our stink bug page.
