Can you please address the danger to cats of being exposed to alpine? If alpine is used to treat fleas in an apartment, can it cause cancer in a pet cat if the cat is exposed?
If Alpine Dust is used as directed, it is safe for use around pets, including cats. Be sure to keep pets out of the area until the product has settled completely into the carpet, furniture, or other areas where it is being applied. Dinotefuran, the active ingredient in Alpine Dust, is a newer non-repellent active ingredient that the EPA has granted Reduced Risk status for public health use. Dinotefuran is part of the insecticide class neonicotinoids, neuro-active insecticides that are modeled after nicotine. Dinotefuran is a central nervous system inhibitor that takes effect after insects ingest it.
