    Q
    Is Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol effective in bedbug control?
    How does Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol compare with Suspend SC?
    A
    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.

    Q
    How can Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol be non-residual, contact kill, and non-repellent all at once?
    Seems like these counteract each other.
    A

    Since Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol is a contact kill, it contains no residual.  It is non-repellent because the insects don’t know that there has been any insecticide sprayed in that area, so it won’t cause the insects to avoid the sprayed areas and look for other areas to invade.

    Q
    Which product has a longer residual, Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol or PT 221L? Which would be better to treat for roaches?
    A

    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.

    Q
    Does Alpine PT Aerosol work on the brown stink bug?
    A
    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.

    Q
    Is this product FLAMMABLE, COMBUSTIBLE? Can it be use in walls and celing around Gas Fireplace?
    Looks like we have nesting that shares the two walls behind our gas corner fireplace and wood mantel. The ants trail up and down the exterior concrete and under the hardy siding. Recently they were up and down the inside wall at the same time others were flying out of the crown molding. There is fras adjacent the fireplace on the left wall, off about two feet with an outlet above it. It must be a mature nest. We caulked crown area off to keep them from flying out (disgusting), so they are in the two walls meeting in the corner and the above ceiling near a recessed light that focuses on the fireplace. Now that we know where they are, can we use this product? What's recommended??? Fireplace is on year round and get hot in that corner. How longs does this product last and will we blow our house up using it???
    A
    Alpine PT Insecticide is not meant to be stored or used near heat or open flames.
    Do not expose to temperatures above 130 degrees F. If you are wanting to use this product around that fireplace, we would recommend not using it while the fireplace is running or while the gas is on. It is only a contact kill so there is no residual. Also, we would not recommend spraying directly into the fireplace as well. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Q
    ADDENDUM-ANTS
    Same Fireplace problem... The fireplace walls are exterior walls (one of EAST SIDE and one on SOUTH side of house). These have fiberglass insulation, sheet rock inside. Ceiling is void between first and second floor; wood construction. Tyvec and Hardy Board Outside with PVC Trim. Wood fence abuts to house at this corner, but is joined to meet corner PVC trim with two PVC blocks; one midway up the fence post and one on top. This was done to prevent ants. Fence post does not go into ground, it was sawed off when installed to prevent infestation. But, we saw tiny ants and flying ants all over this spot and up wall and fence the first night they were swarming. How could they be outside swarming and coming inside through the crown molding? Along this side is also an 12" deep of gravel so rain does sit on patio. Plus an underground (12" down) gas pipe that comes out wall from Fireplace and down along patio. We see ants coming out of ground right here and around the corner on the other fireplace wall. Help!
    A
    We would recommend using Phantom Termiticide/Insecticide. It is an insecticide that is mixed with water and sprayed along the baseboards and cracks and crevices where the ants are and walk. This can also be sprayed outdoors. We would not recommend spraying this directly into the fireplace but can be sprayed around it. Also, this product can be used outdoors around the perimeter of your home. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    Q
    Is the Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol better for spraying for bedbugs?
    Only a few of them keep coming from the neighbors.
    A

    PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol would be the better option out of the two cans as it is labeled for bedbugs. If treating bedbugs, it is recommended to apply multiple products such as the ones offered in our Bedbug kits. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article and videos on a successful program.

    Q
    Non residual?
    I asked if it killed eggs and was like Bedlam Plus. I would not have bought if I had known it did not have residual properties. Don't want bugs showing up after I spray. I spoke to someone and asked and I was not informed. Bedlam Plus is better.
    A
    According to the Alpine PT product label, it will only work if you spray the insect directly. No residual properties are left. It should not be the sole product used when eradicating bedbugs.You should note that even products that are labeled to kill bedbug eggs are not able to kill 100% of the eggs and you will still be required to do follow up treatments every 7-10 days until no further evidence (bites, blood stains, cast skins, fecal deposits) of bedbugs is noticed.  For more information on treating bedbugs, please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Bedbugs for a  successful eradication program.?

    Q
    Will Alpine PT insecticide hurt plants?
    Vapor or if sprayed on plants directly?
    A

    Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol does not include any information on application to plants on the product label, and is intended for use as a crack and crevice, void, spot, or injection treatment for the listed Insects.  You can contact the manufacturer BASF directly with product questions at 1-800-526-1072, or via their website's contact page here.

  • Asked by Matt from Valencia

    Q
    Since Alpine PT Insecticide Aerosol is a contact kill aerosol only, what aerosol insecticide would be recommended to treat for German Roaches that leaves a residual.
    A

    Temprid Ready Spray Aerosol would be the best insecticide aerosol product to use as part of treatment program for German Roaches as it contains 2 active ingredients that will work in 2 modes of actions (contact and residual). One product alone is not going to eradicate German Roaches due to the size of the roach colonies and how fast they reproduce. Repeat treatments every 7-14 days using a combination of products are required for a successful treatment program.

    Please take a moment to review our How to Get Rid of Roaches Treatment Guide and Roach Control Kits for more information.
