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.

ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Dinotefuran 0.25%, Diatomaceous Earth 95.00%

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.
