ST. LOUIS — Pest management professionals looking for low-toxicity alternatives to solve ant and roach problems can turn to BASF Pest Control Solutions’ new Prescription Treatment brand Alpine Ant and Alpine Cockroach Gel Baits.

Both baits feature the Reduced Risk active ingredient dinotefuran and bait matrices that are free of the Big Eight allergens, BASF Pest Control Solutions reports.
