    Q
    Is Alpine WSG safe for use in a home with children?
    A

    Yes, you can use Alpine WSG in a home with children as long as children are out of the treatment area until the application is dry. Alpine WSG (water soluble granule) is a non-pyrethroid, non-repellent broad spectrum insecticide that uses the active ingredient Dinotefuran.
