Is Alpine Dust safe behind baseboards (around perimeter of the living room)?

I'm fighting a cornfield ant problem. It looks like they are crawling between mine and my neighbor's townhouses. Is it safe to sprinkle Alpine dust behind the baseboards? Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.


Yes, the Alpine dust is extremely safe to use as it is an all natural dust that works well on ants. You can use it in wall voids and behind base boards and their crevices. Another option would be using a bait combination like what is in our Complete Ant Kit. This provides the ants with a food source that they will take back to the colony and queen and eliminate it at its source whereas the dust will only kill those it comes into contact with. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
