How Alpine Dust Works
Alpine Dust Insecticide is a contact and residual powder insecticide for crack and crevice, spot and void treatment. Alpine Dust has two active ingredients for quicker kill broad-spectrum use: Dinotefuran and Diatomaceous Earth. Dinotefuran 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. Diatomaceous Earth is a completely natural insecticide made of crushed freshwater diatoms (basically tiny algae fossils) directly from the earth. When insects contact or ingest diatomaceous earth, the scratchy surfaces cut through the waxy coating on the insects’ exoskeleton, causing dehydration and eventual death.
The combination of diatomaceous earth and dinotefuran helps Alpine Dust to work more quickly than many other insecticide dusts without sacrificing safety to people or pets. There is also no known insect resistance to either active ingredient.

Target Uses of Alpine Dust
Alpine Dust can be used for almost any treatment when an insecticide dust is appropriate. Alpine Dust is lighter and, therefore, yields more coverage than many other dusts. Alpine Dust has a broad-spectrum label for many common applications and pests, including bed bugs. Alpine Dust is also effective on pyrethroid-resistant strains of bed bugs or cockroaches. With its Reduced Risk status, Alpine is a perfect choice for sensitive accounts such as hospitals, schools, or nursing homes. Alpine dust can also be used as an outdoor crack and crevice treatment or mulch treatment.
Alpine Dust Application Instructions
This product is intended for application with a hand duster like the Bellow Hand Duster or powder duster, or other dusters, to cracks and crevices, voids, hiding, runway and nest areas and those places where pests are found. In living areas, make applications in such a manner as to avoid deposits on exposed surfaces or introducing the material into the air. Treat a small area of the surface to be treated to observe for staining or other adverse reaction before making regular application. Apply lightly and uniformly to infested areas. Pay particular attention to cracks and crevices; service ducts; false floors and ceilings; wall voids; around electrical and telephone fittings and equipment; around water and sewer pipes; under and behind cabinets, refrigerators and sinks; around window and door frames; along baseboards; in attics; and crawl spaces. Apply between 0.15 – 0.3 oz. per cubic yard. Repeat treatments as necessary.
An 8 ounce bottle covers 250-500 square feet. A 3 lb. pail covers 1,500 to 3,000 square feet of total surface area, keeping in mind that dust is only applied as a crack and crevice, spot, or void treatment.
Standard Application rates for Alpine Dust:
*5 g - 10 g per square meter
*0.15 oz. – 0.3 oz. per square yard
*0.16 oz. – 0.32 oz. per 10 square feet
Alpine Dust is for use in the following areas:
In and around residential and commercial buildings and structures and modes of transport, including: Apartments, Campgrounds, Homes, Hospitals, Hotels, Industrial Buildings, Laboratories, Motels, Nursing Homes, Office Buildings, Resorts, Schools, Stores, Supermarkets, Transportation Equipment (Buses, Boats, Ships, Trains, Trailers, Trucks, and Planes), Utilities, Warehouses and other Commercial and Industrial Buildings, Nonfood/nonfeed areas of Food/Feed Processing Facilities.
Apply thoroughly to all areas where pests crawl and hide, especially in cracks and crevices, voids and hidden surfaces around sinks and storage areas, behind baseboards, around doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, and desks, sinks and stoves and attics and crawl spaces. For invasive pests, treat other places where pests may enter. Direct contact with dry dust is required to be effective.
Bed Bugs: Apply to cracks and crevices where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, box springs, inside empty dressers, clothes closets, and carpet edges, high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use Alpine Dust on mattresses, pillows, bed linens or clothes. Reapply as necessary. Not recommended for use as sole protection against bed bugs.
Stinging insect such as bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets: It is generally advisable to treat wasp and bee nests in the evening when insects are less active and have returned to the nest. Wear protective clothing if deemed necessary to avoid stings. Using hand or power duster, thoroughly dust nest and entrance and surrounding areas where insects alight. Nests in voids should be located and treated. Treat entrances and drill a hole in the void(s), blow dust in, and reseal. For best results check nests carefully one or two days after treatment to ensure complete kill. Direct contact with dry dust is required to be effective.
Perimeter Treatment: Make a treatment around and in cracks and crevices or voids associated with windows and doors, porches, screens, eaves, patios, garages, under stairways, and in crawl spaces and other areas where pests hide. Dust should not be exposed to rain or wind.

By Jim in Aurora CO on 06/17/2012
I used this in conjuntion with Temprid (and Gentrol) after Suspend SC and prythrin based dusts didn't solve bed bug problem. The combination knocked the crap out of the bugs. I had read every study on bedbugs and we cleaned, disposed of, isolated and wash clothing, etc. We washed and vacuumed carpets. The combination of Temprid, Gentrol and Alpine stopped the problem cold. I have also purchased Phantom and intend to follow up with it just because of all I have read but it seems almost meaningless as the bugs got clobbered already. I was stunned out how fast DMOPC is at responding to questions and how fast products arrived at normal shipping rates. This is a business that understands service and DESPERATION for relief. Don't buy the bombs from the hardware stores...it disperses the bugs. Don't use a pyrthrin based (or synthetic) insecticide-the bugs swim in that stuff nowadays-get Temprid or Phantom or both. They work. And Alpine dust-and dust everywhere (inside outlets, bedrails, baseboards, etc). Temprid has a residual kill rate of almost 100% for six months in university studies.

Alpine Dust - great for ants
By Dave in Murfreesboro, TN on 11/05/2011
Note to people with ant problems: with the exception of Pharaoh ants, I STRONGLY recommend using Alpine. Pyrethrins are very effective, but their repellent properties may make a problem worse. I've solved several "problem" ant accounts with this product. They willingly walk right through it and transfer it throughout the rest of the colony.

Did a great job on yellow jacket nest lodged in bricks!
By Nate in Anderson, IN on 08/24/2015
My house was built in 1895 and through a small hole in the brick, above the window, I started seeing yellow jacket activity. After calling local pest control and getting stiff quotes of $250, I purchased this and Long Shot Puffer Duster. I went out at night and dusted the hole and surroundings. The next day -- No more yellow jacket activity; not one. I couldn't believe it. I saved a bunch of money too. Problem solved. A guy on youtube recommended this website. I don't normally recommend things, but this did exactly what I needed. Good luck!

Because the fire ant mound was at the base of a fruit tree, I was very cautious concerning what product to use. Alpine dust was safe and it works well taking care of my problem.

Works Well on Springtails
By Randall in MN on 06/09/2013
I mixed 80% Alpine and 20% Eco PCO dusts in the bulb, then applied it to the patio door where Springtails were gathering. Works well. Watched them walk on it for 2-3 days then they disappeared or died.

By in Dallas, Tx on 07/31/2013
Alpine Dust is excellent! Hornets were all over my back yard...more then 30 or so at one time. We sprinkled the dust all over yard but had to spray Wasp Freeze just to keep them away while dusting. I also ordered a case (12 cans of Wasp Freeze @ $96)...it has been worth every penny. Great product. Dallas, Tx
By Fernando on 05/06/2013
I bought this product not long ago and it worked so good for ants and roaches. Specially for ants I love this product. I believe this is the best dust product if you want to control ants.

QWhy do you use Alpine Dust if you use steam? How does Alpine Dust work?
A The reason you would follow steaming up with dusts or other products is because steam will only kill the bedbugs that are there at the time of the treatment, it does not leave a residual and will not kill bugs that are not directly contacted by the steam. Alpine dust has Dinotefuran plus diatomaceous earth. This combination of ingredients will give you a quick knockdown plus a long lasting residual. The following are the directions of where and how the Alpine dust can be applied: "Apply to cracks and crevices where evidence of bed bugs occurs. This includes bed frames, box springs,
inside empty dressers, clothes closets and carpet edges, high and low wall moldings and wallpaper edges. Do not use this product on mattresses, pillows, bed linens or clothes. Remove all clothes and other articles from dressers or clothes closets before application. Reapply as necessary. Direct contact with dry dust is required to be effective."

QIs Alpine Dust water proof?
ANo. The only dust on the market that is water proof is Delta Dust.
QCan Alpine Dust be used to treat the sides and piping of mattresses?
will this be as effective as diatect dust do you think? Could cover surfaces with Diatect and it seemed to knock down populations very quickly.
APyganic dust would actually be the equivalent of the Diatect that you used in the past. Pyganic dust contains the same active ingredients as Diatect (Pyganic dust contains 1.0% pyrethrins while Diatect only contains 0.2% Pyrethrins) and would provide very similar or better results and it can be used on the mattress. Alpine dust on the other hand contains Dinotefuran and Diatomaceous Earth and it is non-repellent which means that the bedbugs will not be able to sense that there is an insecticide and they will not be able to avoid the treated areas. Alpine Dust cannot be used on mattresses but it is permissible to use it on/in boxsprings.

QI need to kill bedbugs while renovating a boarding house, what will work?
We are renovating a 22-unit boarding house with a known bedbug infestation. Each room is being gutted to the studs. What product will give us the best immediate kill plus residual protection inside the walls before we install new sheetrock? What product should we apply to the floors before we install carpet and padding? All beds and furnishings are being replaced so we start fresh.
AAlpine dust is the product of choice for long-term control of bedbugs. Apline dust can be applied to the wall voids and the floors prior to covering it. Alpine dust will last indefinitely and will keep killing for as long as it is in place. Alpine dust is also on the EPA reduced risk list which makes ideal for use in a boarding house where folks with different health issues may pass through.

QIs 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.
AYes, 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.
QDoes Alpine Dust work on spiders?
A Alpine Dust is a great product to apply to voids and cracks and crevices for many insects including spiders. We also suggest applying the products in our Spider Control Kit as the dust is a slow kill but a olong lasting residual to the listed areas. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Spiders.

QWhat is the best way to clean up Alpine dust when you want to re-apply?
AAlpine Dust is labeled to be used in cracks and crevices, voids and hidden surfaces around sinks and storage areas, behind baseboards, around doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, and desks, sinks and stoves and attics and crawl spaces. There really should not be any place where it will need to be cleaned up unless it was spilled it excess. Dust that spills or may be left in exposed areas can be wiped up with a wet paper towel.
QBest long term bed bug dust?
My next door neighbor is a frequent traveler so I would like to do some bed bug prevention in our place (feel free to tell me if you think this sounds too paranoid). I was thinking about removing the baseboard and putting a good dust behind it along the walls. Can you please tell me which dust would be be the best choice for this task (no pets and no kids in the house). Thanks a lot.
AAlpine Dust is a gret dust to treat for bed bugs. The residual is about 3 months. We do cacrry Cimexa Dust which will last 10 year in undisturbed areas.
02/13/2014 Jimmy from Colorado Springs, Co
QHow long is the residual of Alpine Dust?
I keep seeing comments about the “long lasting residual” but I have yet to see an actual duration. I understand that it will only kill on contact; however, I need to know how long after I apply the dust that it will kill a bedbug who comes into contact with it?
ATypically, the Alpine Dust will remain effective for about 6 months as long as it is left undisturbed.

QShould I wear a face mask while doing the dusting with Alpine Dust?
AIt is typically recommended to wear a mask when applying the Alpine Dust because it is such a fine dust.

Qwhat makes this different than your previous D.E. product which has been discontinued?
the product name was "MotherEarth D - Diatomaceous Earth." What makes alpine dust different? please respond quickly. :) thanks
AThe Mother Earth D.E. has not been discontinued. Our website states that the manufacturer of the Mother Earth DE no longer carries/produces it in the 8 oz size bottle, only the 10lb bucket. The Alpine DE is made by a different company and does come in the smaller 8 oz size. The Alpine has 95% DE and .25% Dinotefuran which gives a quicker knock down of the pest over the Mother Earth which is only 100% DE. Both can be used in the same areas of a home and both are still very safe products to use. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

QWe have warehouse beetles in the kitchen. We use D-force hpx but is there an aerosol product to use as well?
this stuff is working but discovered they are in the wall, is there another product in a spray aersol? have the bugs and the larve..
ABecause the beetles/larva seem to be developing in an inaccessible area where it may not be possible to remove the source of the beetle we recommend you use a long lasting dust insecticide such as Alpine dust. Alpine dust consists of an insecticide and diatomaceous earth and will keep killing insects for as long as it is place and exposed to the insects. You would apply the dust using a bellow hand duster and you would need to try to get the dust into the void where beetles seem to be active. You can do this by unscrewing the wall plate of electrical outlets and and applying the dust with the duster, you can try to get the dust under the baseboard with the duster or you can drill holes about 12" off of the floor and between the wall studs and use the duster to apply the dust.

QIs Alpine Dust pet friendly?
I have two cats and would like to know if I can use this product without harming them
AAlpine dust is very safe to use in a home with cats when it is used as instructed on the product label.
QCrystalline Silica Content?
Could you advise the crystalline silica content % in Diatomaceous Earth? Basically wondering if this is Food Grade (safer for breathing in etc). Thanks.
AWe are not sure. You can try contacting the manufacturer and they may be able to tell you, but what we can tell you is that alpine dust nor any DE dust we carry is food grade. It is pest control grade and not meant for any consumption.

QDoes Alpine Dust kill fleas in your yard?
AAlpine dust and most dust products are intended for treatment indoors. Dust will not last outside with wind and rain.
If you are looking to treat inside and outside for fleas, you should definitely get our indoor/outdoor flea kit. It comes with an excellent product called onslaught, which is great for both outdoors and indoors. It is also very safe around pets and has a long residual. Also in the kit is an IGR called Martins IGR. It is photo-stable up to 14 days which is about as long as you will find for an IGR that will be outside. Of course you should mix both together in the same tank and apply at the same time both outside and inside. Here is a link to the indoor/outdoor flea kit: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/outdoor indoor-flea-kit-p-1349.html Please let us know if you have any further questions.
