Alpine Dust - 3 lbs
Alpine dust insecticide is the industry’s first and only Reduced Risk* nonrepellent dust for long-lasting, broad-spectrum control of crawling and flying insects.
Alpine Dust Insecticide is a ready-to-use contact insecticide dust which has an effective knockdown rate and can kill the listed pests. Alpine Dust is intended to be applied by hand, with a powder duster, or by other suitable means, to cracks and crevices, voids, hideaways, runway, and nest areas and other places where pests are found.
Lightweight for better coverage and more applications per pound than leading dust.
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. Not recommended for use as sole protection against bed bugs. If evidence of bed bugs is found in/on mattresses use products approved for this use.
Eliminate Exposed Bed Bugs
Vacuuming and other mechanical means of quickly killing and removing exposed bed bugs are
recommended as a first step toward controlling an infestation. Focus on accessible harborages
and areas disturbed during preparation where bed bugs may have scattered. Nymphs are very small and eggs nearly invisible, so complete reliance on these methods to physically remove all bed bugs is not realistic.
A directed contact treatment for quick reduction of bed bug populations is necessary in
most situations where bed bugs are found, especially in complex harborages where the mechanical methods are less effective.
Treating and neutralizing eggs wherever bed bugs are found is also very important. This entails application of an insecticide to exposed bed bugs within a localized area.
To ensure that resistance and repellency will not sabotage your control efforts, the smartest approach is to start with a nonrepellent foundation using Phantom® termiticide-insecticide and/or Prescription Treatment® brand Phantom® pressurized insecticide.
Treat Likely Harborages Crack & Crevice® treatments are common around bed frames, box springs, headboards, and in cracks and crevices associated with baseboards, mouldings, carpet edging, wall fixtures, night stands, dressers, and other hard furniture. Spot treatments are common on baseboards, undersides of dressers, drawers, and to certain areas of other furniture that bed bugs are likely to crawl on near aggregation sites or en route to feeding. Phantom and Phantom pressurized insecticides are recommended for spot and Crack & Crevice treatments due to their respective residual action and effectiveness in killing bed bug eggs. Void treatments are applications to enclosed spaces where insects may live, hide, or travel. Common voids are hollow bed frames, platforms, walls, and other hollow structures. Dusts provide excellent long-term control when applied to voids and other harborage areas. Prescription Treatment® brand Alpine® dust is a nonrepellent dust labeled for bed bug treatment, and its Reduced Risk* active ingredient, dinotefuran, makes it ideal for sensitive accounts.
Address Sensitive Areas
Bed bugs, as the name implies, are often closely associated with the bed and human hosts. While direct treatment of troubled areas like this is tempting, it's important to keep in mind that people spend an average of one-third of their day on or around their beds. Always consult and follow the label and refrain from any deviance from the label language. The table above (Table 2) lists the variations in the label language relative to the treatment of one of the most sensitive areas: the mattress. Following treatment, mattress covers are often recommended to prevent future infestation in this sensitive area and to reduce risk associated with human contact of treated surfaces.
