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 on November 5, 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.

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.
By Fernando on May 6, 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.
Works Well on Springtails
By Randall on June 9, 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.

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.
July 15, 2011Terry asked:
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.

QIs Alpine Dust pet friendly?
I have two cats and would like to know if I can use this product without harming them

QDoes it 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.

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.

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.

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.
