Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait Rotation 2 Reservoir
Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait Rotation 2 Reservoir makes controlling the roach population in your home quick and simple. Using dinotefuran as its active ingredient and lasting for more than 30 days, the bait attracts all of the roaches to it, ensuring that the majority of the pest population will be treated, while minimizing any health or allergy risk. Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait kills your problem roaches within hours of application and is labeled for many food-handling areas, aircraft, and other sensitive locations where other insecticides would be difficult to use. Just follow the directions below on how to apply the product in each area. If applied outside, make sure to keep it out of direct sunlight and water, as the Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait will lose effectiveness over time. The product comes in a lighter color than competing gel baits, reducing the chance of it staining the surface it is applied to. Do not apply Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait in the same area as a liquid insecticide, near air currents, onto paper, cardboard, or porous surfaces, or in areas which can be exposed to high temperatures, such as stoves, fume hoods, and hot water pipes. For the best results, keep all surfaces clean and change baits every few months to keep the roaches from gaining resistance.
This item has replaced the Advance Cockroach Gel Bait from BASF.

How Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait Works
Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait uses the active ingredient Dinotefuran. 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. The effects of the active ingredient are slow enough that roaches who have consumed Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait will come in contact with other roaches and transfer the active ingredient, either directly or indirectly through feeding on feces or poisoned carcasses. There is no known pest resistance to dinotefuran.
Alpine Cockroach Gel Bait can be used for virtually any roach infestation when a gel bait is desired. The active ingredient dinotefuran is especially helpful for roach populations that have developed resistance to older or more popular baits. Alpine has an extremely broad label and can be used even in very sensitive situations, especially when sprays are either prohibited or undesirable. Gel baits are not ideal for preventative measures as they may attract roaches that were otherwise not in the area. Be sure to eliminate competing food and water sources for best results.
Standard Application Rates
- 10 spots per 100 sq. ft. – Low to moderate infestations
- 20 spots per 100 sq. ft. – Severe infestations
- Use 3-6mm (1/8 – ¼”) diameter spots (0.25 – 0.50 g)
Exact placement should be based on a complete monitoring and inspection. Applications should focus on cracks and crevices in areas where activity has been observed or is likely, such as near water sources, around pipe collars, where utilities enter, around or under appliances, underneath counters, where cupboard frames meet the wall, along drawer slides, along baseboards, doorframes, and windowsills. If using residual sprays, do not use sprays and baits in the same places: keep sprays in low areas on or near the floor and use baits in higher locations.
Use for control of cockroaches. Inject into cracks and crevices around windows and doors, porches, screens, eaves, patios, garages, under stairways and other areas adjacent to structures where cockroaches may find harborage. Environmental stresses such as direct sunlight and water will reduce the residual effectiveness, so apply bait in protected areas whenever possible.
