Alpine WSG Insecticide, manufactured by BASF, is an effective non-repellent insecticide that comes in water-soluble granule form which contains the active ingredient dinotefuran.
Although Alpine WSG is great against cockroaches, bed bugs, and flies, it is a broad-spectrum insecticide that targets a variety of other household pests, which may be found around your home or business.
Another great thing about Alpine WSG Insecticide is that it has no application interval restrictions found on the label, which means you can apply it as many times as you want until the pests have been exterminated. Use Alpine WSG if you are looking for an insecticide to take care of insect infestations both inside and outside.
To use Alpine WSG Insecticide, you will need either a handheld sprayer or a backpack sprayer.
Do not apply in outdoor residential misting systems.
How to Use
- Step 1: Inspect the area to see where your target pest is active and note those places as this is where the spray treatment will be focused. Determine how much Alpine WSG Insecticide to use by measuring the square footage of the treatment area. To do this, measure the length and width of the treatment area in feet then multiply (length X width = square footage). Alpine WSG Insecticide is available either in pre-measured packets or water-soluble granules in a bottle. For a 0.1% concentration, Alpine WSG Insecticide is mixed at a rate of 0.35 oz. in a gallon of water to treat 1,000 sq. ft. For a 0.2% dilution, the rate is 0.70 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. and for 0.3% dilution, the rate is 1.05 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. Use the higher concentrations for severe infestations or for certain target pests. So for example, if you have 2,000 sq. ft. of measured area to treat and you want a 0.1% ratio, you will need to mix 0.70 oz. of Alpine WSG Insecticide in 2 gallons of water.
- Step 2: Add about 1/2 of the water to the spray tank. Add the appropriate measured amount of Alpine WSG Insecticide to the water, then complete filling the spray tank. Agitate the tank until the product is completely dissolved, then you are ready to spray.
- Step 3: Apply the Alpine WSG Insecticide spray mixture as a perimeter treatment outdoors (around weep holes, door and window frames, eaves, bushes, foliage etc.) or directly to wasps nests and anthills. Indoors, apply as a crack and crevice application in pest hiding places and points of entry depending on the target pest (void areas, under sinks and refrigerators, carpets, upholstered furniture etc.). Reapply the Alpine WSG spray as needed for continued control every month or so.
