Product Overview

Alpine WSG (water-soluble granule) is a non-pyrethroid, non-repellent broad-spectrum insecticide that uses the active ingredient Dinotefuran. Dinotefuran has been granted Reduced Risk status for public health use by the EPA. Alpine WSG can be used in attics and eaves; on exterior hard surfaces like sidewalks, driveways, patios and porches; on full exterior sides of buildings; indoors as a broadcast interior treatment on carpets, rugs, floors, upholstered furniture, pet beds and resting areas; and off structure as a broadcast application for fleas and ants.

Alpine WSG is effective against a wide range of common insects such as brown marmorated stink bugs, kudzu bugs, ants, fleas, bed bugs, house flies, and cockroaches (including American, German and Turkestan). Alpine WSG has residual activity of 30 to 60 days for most applications.

Alpine WSG requires no rinsing. The finished solution of Alpine WSG is odorless, non-staining, and does not settle once mixed. Alpine WSG does not clog spraying equipment because it dissolves completely in water.

    Wow!

    By David on 04/30/2017

    So, been in the pest control industry for 8 years. Ants have really become an issue. When I started years ago, we used Suspend Sc for interior, and Dragnet SFR on exterior for ants. FYI not a good idea using repellents on ants. Switched to a interior phantom/ exterior termidor. It works great, but you are limited to two applications of .06 concentration, or four .03 a year. Had to find something that I could use more often on customers homes who had moisture issues/ conducive conditions. Then I found Alpine WSG. This is the first non repellent that I could use inside and outside, and re apply with minimal restrictions. It truly eliminates ants when used per label. Thank you BASF, for creating something so effective.

    Highly recommended

    By Jay on 08/21/2015

    Alpine WSG was easiest to use of the several different insecticides we have tried. It dissolved quickly and completely, tank mixed great with other needed chemicals, and is very effective on the bugs we were targeting. We have used it with much success on fleas, mosquitos, and deer flies on different occasions.

    Kills German Cockroaches dead

    By Mark on 08/02/2019

    I used on a fully infested house last week (thousands in one room- ugh) and it knocked them dead in about 5-15 seconds on direct application . There were more entrenched survivors days later - I used a variety of things (new tenants moving in 10 days later) including Suspend - which didnt kill on direct application and Talstar outside which also didn't kill when sprayed directly on the insects. Alpine was the one I felt had the best short and long term results. I found a huge nest in the range and they were all dead by then, though not certain if it was the alpine or the foggers used later (4 times) that got them. Infested 4 year old range went to landfil - it could not be deodorized effectively - no regrets and good riddance. Another nest in Fridge they loved the defrost pan (water supply) entire fridge disassembled and steam cleaned. Lesson learned, Germans roaches will eventually destroy a house because the dead roaches must be removed to remove the odor and they are not always accessible. I was lucky mine were in accessible places.

    Verdict's not in Yet Still Testing

    By Stephanie on 03/27/2015

    Verified Purchase

    I used the Alpine WSG alongside the Martins IGR (one gallon) for stubborn flea population in my apartment I inherited (I don't have a pet). Since the flea infestation is so severe, I will need another treatment to be sure the combo worked. However it does look VERY promising as the FLEA BITING HAS STOPPED after just one application. Imagine if I had two gallons instead of the one.

Q
How long after diluting Alpine WSG can I continue to use the solution?

Do I have to use all of what I mixed right away?

A

While most insecticide concentrates need to be used within 24 hours of diluting, Alpine WSG solution can be used much longer. As long as the solution was agitated enough to mix completely, then you can use the solution for 10-14 days after diluting it.
