PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol previously known as Alpine Flea Insecticide Aerosol with IGR is the newest flea control from the Alpine line of products. PT Alpine is made with dinotefuran which was granted a reduced risk status from the EPA. This means that PT Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR is one of the safest products you can have in your home for flea control. The powerful ingredient in PT Alpine flea insecticide, dinotefuran, provides 30 days of control for adults fleas, and since Alpine flea insecticide contains an IGR, it also provides up to 7 months of control on hatching eggs. When treating a flea infestation in the home, vacuuming is a crucial part of treatment. All flooring should be thoroughly vacuumed before treatment as well as the days following your first application. A second treatment and more vacuuming should be done exactly 14 days after the first treatment for best results. For bad flea infestations, treatment may need to extend to 4 or more treatments. All pets and outdoor areas should be treated as well.

How Alpine Flea Insecticide Works
PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol previously known as Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol has the combined convenience of adulticide and insect growth regulator in one product for complete flea control. The active ingredient dinotefuran is a newer active ingredient in the class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, disrupting the insects’ nervous system and causing paralysis and death. Products with dinotefuran, such as the PT Alpine line, are granted an official “Reduced Risk” status by the EPA. The dinotefuran provides up to 30 days of control for adult fleas, and the insect growth regulator inhibits the development of younger stages of fleas for up to 7 months.
While the insect growth regulator in Alpine Flea Insecticide will continue to work for up to 7 months, it is recommended to re-apply Alpine Flea Insecticide after 14 days if new fleas continue to emerge. This will increase knock-down of new adults. Preparations and cleaning such as vacuuming thoroughly before and after treatments will also greatly affect the success of Alpine Flea Insecticide. See below for complete treatment instructions.
Alpine Flea Insecticide Target Pests
Flea eggs and larvae, adult fleas
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH ALPINE FLEA INSECTICIDE: Adult and immature fleas, hatching flea eggs
Target Uses of Alpine Flea Insecticide
For indoor treatment of active flea infestations and to prevent flea infestations from developing, especially in sensitive areas where a Reduced Risk Pesticide is preferred. Prevents re-infestation for 7 months. Alpine Flea Insecticide is also ideal when treatment is limited to a few areas or the convenience of an aerosol ready-to-use product is desired.
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Dinotefuran .25% Pyriproxyfen .10% Prallethrin .05%
PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol Application Instructions
- Identify treatment areas: especially those where pets frequent, such as in and around pet's sleeping and resting areas. These are the primary areas where fleas and their eggs are found. (Before treatment, a test application should be made to upholstery, drapery, light-colored, delicate fabrics, or wood surfaces in an inconspicuous place.)
- Prepare treatment areas: For best results with Surface/Carpet treatments, vacuum thoroughly before spraying and discard vacuum bag in outside trash. Canister vacuums are also excellent as they can be easily emptied.
- Apply treatment. For flea infestations, a single can treats over 2000 square feet. SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE. Hold can at arm’s length and direct spray toward target area, keeping 36” away from the surface being treated. Using a sweeping motion, apply a light uniform spray to furniture, rugs, carpets, drapes, and around all pet resting areas. Avoid thoroughly wetting surfaces. Mist treated areas only until "slightly damp". Do not over-treat. Reapply in 14 days, if necessary. IMPORTANT: Only complete and proper application to carpets, upholstery, drapes, and other fabrics will provide thorough flea/tick elimination. Keep children and pets out of areas during treatment. Vacate room after treatment, and ventilate until surfaces are dry before reoccupying.
- For best results, eliminate fleas on pets with an approved flea product like Petcor Flea Spray or a product recommended by your veterinarian.
Always read the product label completely before use.
Each 20 oz. can of Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol will treat up to 2,625 square feet. An area of 80-100 square feet can be treated in approximately 10 seconds. Keep in mind that most infestations will require at least one follow-up treatment after two weeks.
Alpine Flea Insecticide is for use in the following areas:
Apartments, Commercial Structures, Homes, Hotels, Kennels, Motels and Veterinary Clinics
When treating upholstered furniture, treat under cushions and areas where flea development occurs. Cover aquariums and fish bowls and remove birds prior to treating. See above for complete application instructions.
Alpine Flea Insecticide is appropriate for carpeting or upholstered areas and for porous flooring such as concrete. Sealed or stained surfaces such as hardwood floors will be unlikely harborage sites for fleas; these sites should be tested in a small area for staining or discoloration before use.
Fleas may appear for up to two weeks after treatment. This is the pupal window – when younger stages of fleas may still emerge – and the residual activity of Ultracide should kill adults who emerge during this time. Frequent vacuuming (every day or every other day) will also help encourage immature fleas to emerge more quickly while also picking up the organic matter on which larvae feed.
Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol is not intended for outdoor use.

Extra Tips for Using Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR
* Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR is NOT labeled for use on animals. Keep pets out of treatment are until product dries.
* Treat outdoor areas where pets play, rest, or otherwise frequent to prevent re-infestation using appropriate products such as our Indoor/Outdoor Flea Kit.
* Try using a paper towel to mark “hot spots” where pets frequent, and pick up just before you treat the area.
* Wash or dispose of pet bedding before treatment.
* Additional cleaning such as steam cleaning or mopping should be done prior to application of Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR.

worth every penny! exterminators are a waste of time & money
By Becky in Lou, Ky on 02/08/2012
We tried everything to rid our home of fleas, it was exhausting! Even shelled out $ to an exterminator & found more fleas a month later! All our animals were given capstar & frontline, I vacuumed constantly, nothing worked until this product! I still continue w the vacuuming as a precaution but haven't seen a flea since! & my cat who was deathly sick from fleas is now healthy again! I even order 2 extra cans just in case I ever need again, but taking every precaution not to have these nasty pests again! Who knew they were so hard to get rid of, it took us 6 months & finally discovering this product! We were told hardwood floors were almost impossible to rid of fleas, but that's been proven wrong! I highly recommend this product-save yourself from months of pulling your hair out!

Works very well
By Linda in Jacksonville, FL on 04/17/2012
This product is easy to use and works very well. I used 1-1/2 cans to do my 3700 sq ft house. I had already had a pest control service spray this product the first time. All I can tell you is the fleas are still not entirely gone. Vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. I did not do this enough to start out with. Next, use a good product on your pet. I used Advantage II and will be using it again 10 days later. I also had the yard sprayed. This product alone is not an instant fix in Florida where I live and I doubt anything would be. You still have to get all the eggs.

By Sammy\'s in Fredericksburg, VA on 10/02/2012
I used this in conjunction with the Petcor flea spray - they are a force to be reaconed with!! Vacuum, then spray. Repeat a day later, then a week later. You'll be very surprised how great this works. We had a terrible flea season in the Mid-Atlantic states - warm weather last winter added fuel to the fire.
By John in Des Moines, IA on 12/07/2016
By far the best product I have used, and the price is worth every bit of what is in that can!
killed the fleas so fat
By Sal in lakehurst, nj on 11/12/2016
Coverage is not what the can said. Only got 2 rooms of coverage so you will need that second can for the post application. Did everything, carpet and bedding. So far so good
By Tina in Wake Forest on 11/10/2016
i paid an exterminator $100 to spray this in my home. i have had no fleas since and bought my own can just in case i ever have them again.

Works very well on bed bugs. knew it would because we had gotten a can from an exterminator. When I looked online for this particular spray, was extremely pleased to have found this. Purchased 2 cans.
Finally something that workds
By Randy in Wetumpka, Alabama on 12/12/2015
The little can sprays from Walmart etc didn't work but this stuff did. I like that you don't have to use the entire can at once like the little "bombs" for single rooms. Worth the price.
Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol
By Norma in Granite City on 10/18/2015
I have to say that the jury is still out on this one. It's only been two weeks since it was used throughout the house and since the cat was cleaned and treated for fleas. She's almost due for treatment number two and I'll spray and vacuum some more. With the weather getting cooler, I've found evidence of field mice coming in and they are most likely carriers of fleas so this may be ongoing for a while. Will likely be buying more very soon.

QHow does Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol smell?
Also, how long before my cat and I can re-enter?
AAlpine Flea Insecticide does have a mild odor but we have never had anyone complain that they thought it was offensive. Everyone should stay out of the room for at least 30 minutes or until the product has had a chance to dry.

QCan you use Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol on hardwood floors and furniture?
I live in an apartment with hardwood floors and a couple area rugs.
AYes, you can use Alpine Flea with IGR on hardwood floors, furniture, area rugs, etc. It can be applied to almost any surface. However, you should always treat a small area first and allow it to dry before treating the entire area just to make sure there are no issues. The most important part of any flea treatment though is to vacuum very thoroughly before the treatment, then every 2 to 3 days after the treatment. You should then apply a second treatment in exactly 14 days after the first one.

QRe: Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol -- does it automatically kill flea eggs and larvae?
Do you need to vacuum immediately after applying this product ? we're hearing different things from different people; such as the flea eggs only get destroyed if you vacuum the carpets after applying this product; but waiting 2 1/2 hours to vacuum after applying this product. How do I get the accurate instructions on how to apply and use this product? Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciative. Thank You for your help!
AAlpine flea Insecticide with IGR will not kill flea eggs or larvae. It will make some eggs sterile and it will cause the larvae to become non breeding adults. The vacuuming does not destroy eggs. Vacuuming does stimulate the eggs to hatch and the larvae to emerge from the cocoon causing them to be exposed to the product you sprayed. Vacuuming should be done immediately prior to the treatment so as many of immature fleas are exposed as possible. We recommend you continue to vacuum daily or every other day for the following 14 days so more of the immature fleas will be exposed to the treatment. Vacuuming isn't demanded on the product label instructions but we can tell you from experience that it will certainly speed along the flea control program.

QHow do you recommend dealing with bedding and mattresses while using this product?
You have addressed vacuuming daily/every other day, but not how to deal with bedding. Should we wash bedding and vacuum mattresses on the same schedule? Would running bedding through the dryer be as effective? Just looking for some suggestions or experiences.
A Assuming that you are treating for fleas,we recommend that you vacuum the flooring daily and the linens weekly (washed and dried in heat). The Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol will be applied once every two weeks. Below is a great article on treating fleas inside the home.

QWhat can I use to treat a flea infestation within my home?
I have fleas on my pets and in my home. What can I use to kill the live adult fleas and prevent a further infestation? My animals have treatment (Revolution for the cat and K9 Advantix for the dogs) on them and I have been doing regular maintenance in the house but it is not making any difference.

QIs PT Alpine Flea and Bedbug Aerosol the best product to use for fleas on hard surfaces like hardwood and tile?
A We would recommend treating floor surfaces with PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol. As with any product that you apply, we do recommend spot testing in an inconspicuous area first to determine if staining/discoloration occurs. You will vacuum first (even hard surfaced floors) and treat. Vacuum daily and apply second application two weeks after first spray and vacuum daily for 14 more days. You will continue this application process for flea elimination. Please take a few moments to review our treatment article on How to Get Rid of Fleas for a successful program.

QIs PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol harmful to cats in the grooming process?
