PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol can (20 oz)
How Alpine Flea Insecticide Works
PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol previously known as Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol has the combined convenience of adulticide and insect growth regulator in one product for complete flea control. The active ingredient dinotefuran is a newer active ingredient in the class of insecticides called neonicotinoids, disrupting the insects’ nervous system and causing paralysis and death. Products with dinotefuran, such as the PT Alpine line, are granted an official “Reduced Risk” status by the EPA. The dinotefuran provides up to 30 days of control for adult fleas, and the insect growth regulator inhibits the development of younger stages of fleas for up to 7 months.
While the insect growth regulator in Alpine Flea Insecticide will continue to work for up to 7 months, it is recommended to re-apply Alpine Flea Insecticide after 14 days if new fleas continue to emerge. This will increase knock-down of new adults. Preparations and cleaning such as vacuuming thoroughly before and after treatments will also greatly affect the success of Alpine Flea Insecticide. See below for complete treatment instructions.
Alpine Flea Insecticide Target Pests
Flea eggs and larvae, adult fleas
PESTS CONTROLLED WITH ALPINE FLEA INSECTICIDE: Adult and immature fleas, hatching flea eggs
Target Uses of Alpine Flea Insecticide
For indoor treatment of active flea infestations and to prevent flea infestations from developing, especially in sensitive areas where a Reduced Risk Pesticide is preferred. Prevents re-infestation for 7 months. Alpine Flea Insecticide is also ideal when treatment is limited to a few areas or the convenience of an aerosol ready-to-use product is desired.
ACTIVE INGREDIENTS: Dinotefuran .25% Pyriproxyfen .10% Prallethrin .05%
PT Alpine Flea and Bed Bug Aerosol Application Instructions
- Identify treatment areas: especially those where pets frequent, such as in and around pet's sleeping and resting areas. These are the primary areas where fleas and their eggs are found. (Before treatment, a test application should be made to upholstery, drapery, light-colored, delicate fabrics, or wood surfaces in an inconspicuous place.)
- Prepare treatment areas: For best results with Surface/Carpet treatments, vacuum thoroughly before spraying and discard vacuum bag in outside trash. Canister vacuums are also excellent as they can be easily emptied.
- Apply treatment. For flea infestations, a single can treats over 2000 square feet. SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE. Hold can at arm’s length and direct spray toward target area, keeping 36” away from the surface being treated. Using a sweeping motion, apply a light uniform spray to furniture, rugs, carpets, drapes, and around all pet resting areas. Avoid thoroughly wetting surfaces. Mist treated areas only until "slightly damp". Do not over-treat. Reapply in 14 days, if necessary. IMPORTANT: Only complete and proper application to carpets, upholstery, drapes, and other fabrics will provide thorough flea/tick elimination. Keep children and pets out of areas during treatment. Vacate room after treatment, and ventilate until surfaces are dry before reoccupying.
- For best results, eliminate fleas on pets with an approved flea product like Petcor Flea Spray or a product recommended by your veterinarian.
Each 20 oz. can of Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol will treat up to 2,625 square feet. An area of 80-100 square feet can be treated in approximately 10 seconds. Keep in mind that most infestations will require at least one follow-up treatment after two weeks.
Alpine Flea Insecticide is for use in the following areas:
Apartments, Commercial Structures, Homes, Hotels, Kennels, Motels and Veterinary Clinics
When treating upholstered furniture, treat under cushions and areas where flea development occurs. Cover aquariums and fish bowls and remove birds prior to treating. See above for complete application instructions.
Alpine Flea Insecticide is appropriate for carpeting or upholstered areas and for porous flooring such as concrete. Sealed or stained surfaces such as hardwood floors will be unlikely harborage sites for fleas; these sites should be tested in a small area for staining or discoloration before use.
Fleas may appear for up to two weeks after treatment. This is the pupal window – when younger stages of fleas may still emerge – and the residual activity of Ultracide should kill adults who emerge during this time. Frequent vacuuming (every day or every other day) will also help encourage immature fleas to emerge more quickly while also picking up the organic matter on which larvae feed.
Alpine Flea Insecticide with IGR Aerosol is not intended for outdoor use.
