Alpine is used for control of insect pests such as aphids, whiteflies, thrips, leafhoppers, leafminers, sawflies, mole cricket, white grubs, lace bugs, billbugs, beetles, and mealybugs. Alpine has the active ingredient “Dinotefuron” which is a neonicotinoid insecticide. Alpine is a contact poison and does not require ingestion by the insect to be effective.3 Alpine binds irreversibly to insect nicotinic receptors and mimics the effects of acetylcholine, resulting in continuous nerve stimulation, incoordination, tremors, and death of the insect.
