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.

“These new gel baits represent our next step in expanding the Alpine line of products which already includes nonrepellent pressurized and dust formulations,” said Nick Tresslar, marketing manager, BASF Pest Control Solutions.

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. (Dinotefuran, the non-repellent active ingredient in Alpine insecticides, has been granted Reduced Risk status for public health use by EPA.)
