Alpine WSG was easiest to use of the several different insecticides we have tried. It dissolved quickly and completely, tank mixed great with other needed chemicals, and is very effective on the bugs we were targeting. We have used it with much success on fleas, mosquitos, and deer flies on different occasions.

Jury is still out
By Ab in Ellicott City, MD on 07/11/2014
I applied this as a general treatment to our new home. The solution is colorless and odorless as promised, which is great, but the efficacy so far is questionable. I applied to the inside basement perimeter, the inside garage perimeter, and the exterior house perimeter where the foundation meets the ground. I have seen some dead bugs since then, which is what I want to see, but it is still common to see critters roaming through the garage and all along the exterior. In my first application, I used the medium strength option (two tablets per gallon). I will try a fresh application soon and use full strength. We have no infestation by any means and I am not clear what a reasonable and realistic expectation is, especially along the outer perimeter, but I would at least like to start seeing dead bugs in the garage if I continue to see live ones.

Verdict's not in Yet Still Testing
By Stephanie in Ohio on 03/27/2015
I used the Alpine WSG alongside the Martins IGR (one gallon) for stubborn flea population in my apartment I inherited (I don't have a pet). Since the flea infestation is so severe, I will need another treatment to be sure the combo worked. However it does look VERY promising as the FLEA BITING HAS STOPPED after just one application. Imagine if I had two gallons instead of the one.

QIf I don't have CB-80, can I mix Alpine WSG with Exciter to act as flushing agent?
A Exciter is meant to be added to insecticides to only give a faster initial knockdown and would not be good as a flushing agent with Alpine WSG which is a non-repellent insecticide. Mixing something that is considered repellent with a non repellent would null this aspect of the product until it's residual was gone.

QCan I apply Alpine WSG as a trunk spray instead of Safari?
I was thinking about using this as a substitute for Safari until I read your answer to a similar question. The answer stated "there are many other products we recommend for insect control for those who know the Safari name and brand but are looking for a product that is more cost effective but equally as effective at controlling the pests". Could you please provide a couple of alternatives for a basal bark treatment against EAB? Thanks
A Alpine WSG is not labeled for emerald ash borers in this particular formulation. We do have other products with a different active ingredient in it that can be used for a basal trunk treatment, such as Adonis 2F Insecticide. Be sure to check the label on the specifics on how much should be used per gallon of water.

QCan you tell me about the active ingredient dinotefuran that is in Alpine WSG?
I am interested in Alpine WSG but your web site has little to no information on it?
ADinotefuran, the active ingredient in Alpine WSG is a relatively new insecticide belonging to the class of insecticides known as neonicotinoids, which are among the most widely used insecticides in the world. Dinotefuran products are labeled "Reduced-Risk" by the EPA, meaning they have very low toxicity and are generally safer around humans, pets and the environment. Dinotefuran is a central nervous system inhibitor. Ingestion leads to death within a few hours.

QCan I tank mix Alpine WSG with Cyper WSP?
AThere really would be no reason to tank mix Alpine WSG with Cyper WSG. They both are considered adulticides, just different active ingredients.

QWhen using Alpine WSG indoors, will it cause stress on the colony, causing it to split into sub-colonies?
AAlpine WSG is a non-repellent, reduced-risk insecticide that is labeled for various insect species. The undetectable transferability to kill ants where they are found will prevent the colonies from splitting. When it is applied it is clear and has no odor. It has residual activity for 30-60 days. Please provide additional information on the insect that you are treating so we can offer more helpful tips for treatment.

QDoes Alpine WSG need to be reapplied after rain?
AAlpine WSG should be applied and dried prior to a rainfall. It will have residual activity for 30-60 days. If it was applied just prior to a downpour, you will need to reapply the product. Please let us know if you have any questions.
QCan Alpine WSG be used in rain?
AIt is not recommended to use Alpine WSG while it is raining outdoors. This will wash the product away, and it will not be effective for the pests your are attempting to eliminate. We would recommend waiting until it has been down for at least 6 hours before it rains.

QCan Alpine WSG be used as a systemic insecticide on plants?
Because Alpine WSG uses the same active ingredient as some of the best plant insecticides (e.g., Safari), is seems logical that it should be usable in this application. The soluble powder in the sachets appear to be an economical and convenient way for a master gardener/homeowner to get the benefits of using this chemical without having the expense of purchasing a large amount of Safari in liquid form.
AAlpine WSG is not labeled for use as a systemic product on plants and is only labeled for structural pest control in and around the outside of residences and commercial areas. We do not know if it would work for the purpose you intend as although it may be the same active ingredient, that does not mean it and its innert ingredients are formulated in a way that is not harmful to the tree if absorbed in the root system or to disperse in the way the Safari is made to work. Depending on the insect you are trying to treat for, there are many other products we recommend for insect control for those who know the Safari name and brand but are looking for a product that is more cost effective but equally as effective at controlling the pests. If you let us know what pest you are trying to control or prevent we can help find an alternative product for you.
