BASF PT Alpine foam is another ready-to-use and effective insecticide that can kill termites and their entire colony remarkably well. It is manufactured by BASF United States—reputable manufacturers of quality pest control products.
It is known to be effective in the treatment of tough termite issues. This termite killing foam works quite well on subterranean and dry wood termites and carpenter ants. The active ingredient in this termite killing foam is Dinotefuran (.025 percent), a nerve inhibitor. It halts the brain function of these pests and ultimately kills them and their colony. Alpine Foam expands at a ratio of 30:1 at one ounce of the product (or 5 seconds of spray) that produces approximately 1 quart of foam every time.
This product’s unique formulation offers better control and coverage due to thick foam cells that resist breakage, making it impossible for a termite colony to run away, which is not possible for a variety of insecticides such as termite killing sprays. Alpine Foam is a safer insecticide that is part of a line of reduced-risk insecticides containing Dinotefuran.
- Dinotefuran active ingredient, highly potent insecticide

- Fast-acting; it delivers speedy results.
- Insecticide forms thicker, stronger cell walls
- It can be used for either indoor and outdoor spot termite killing.
- Long-lasting residual protection is also provided, protecting homes from termites for months to come.
- No setup time or mixing concern.
- Right complementary product for Termidor insecticide
- Suitable for use at home, office, hotels, restaurants, etc.
- A bit on the expensive side, too, compared to other products out there.
- Not the most environmentally friendly insecticide on the market

- Tools are not needed for the use of the Alpine Termite Foam.
How to use
Simple and easy-to-use. Attach the application hose into the ready-to-use Alpine Termite and Ant Foam cans. Direct injection into termite galleries, cracks, crevices, nests, holes, and wall voids to remove termite or wood-infesting insect attacks. Apply as often as necessary. Termite colonies may be vast, so foam with strong, long-lasting cell walls must expand rapidly to reach all the colony areas.
Where to use
BASF TRTD0050 PT Alpine Foam Insecticide can be used indoors or outdoors for residential, commercial, and industrial settings, in hotels, hospitals (non-patient areas), schools, food and feed handling facilities (non-food or feed areas only), office buildings, and restaurants.
For indoor use, cracks and crevices around the floors of windows, doors, junctions between wood and wooden elements inside walls, wood in crawl spaces, attics, or holes in the sheets, can be treated. You can spray Alpine Termite Foam to cracks, crevices, building structures, wood decks, foundations, galleries, wood fencing, shrubs, utility poles, slabs, and stumps for outdoor use damaged wood structures, or wherever termite activity or other insects is suspected.
When to use
PT Alpine Foam may be used as a spot treatment for termites to stop ongoing termite infestations in wall voids and other dangerous pests from entering the structure or used as a control option when targeted termites are suspected.
If you see ants or termites disappear into a wall void, Alpine Ant and Termite Foam may be the answer to eradication. Pesticide foam travels where the liquid can’t go. Gravity limits a liquid pesticide’s upward movement, but foam will pile up and rise to the pest hiding places.

PT Alpine Foam is safe to be used around humans and pets on the label of the product. Before applying, ensure that the area is well ventilated and does not use or store near open flames, heat sources, or electrical outlets. Please do not apply directly to electronic equipment. This product should also avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing, and hands thoroughly washed with soap and water after handling and before eating or drinking.
It should not be discharged directly into water bodies as it may be toxic to fish and other aquatic animals. It is also harmful to bees and to be used with caution.
Depending on the severity of drywood termite infestations, this product alone may not be sufficient to completely control troublesome termites and future termite infestations. PT Alpine Foam is safe to use with other pest control products such as Termidor (Fipronil), bait stations, dust, and liquid insecticides.
Can Alpine Foam be used with Termidor to treat termites?
Yes, since Pt Alpine Termite Foam is also non-repellent, you can use it in conjunction with Termidor without any problems. It would be advisable to apply Termidor outside and Alpine foam inside the structure.
Is Alpine Foam safe to use for pets?
Yes, Alpine Foam is safe to use around pets if it is used as directed.
Can Alpine Foam get rid of any termite when adequately applied?
PT Alpine Foam kills any termite that comes into contact with it, but it is not the right way to eliminate subterranean termites. It does not eliminate the entire termite colony on its own at the time of application.
Are termite foams safe for indoor use?
Most termite-killing foams are safe for indoor use and don’t leave a strong odor behind but should only be used as directed by the label’s instructions.
PT Alpine Foam is a very easy-to-use pest control product in the market. It is effective not only against termite populations but also against other common pests such as stink bugs and ants. It is a termite foam product that acts exceptionally quickly and is ideal for spot treatments on termite swarm sites. It has a long-lasting residual effect and gives up to 8 weeks of effective termite control and excellent termite protection.
Alpine Foam Insecticide is considered one of the most remarkable termite killing products or options in the market due to the low toxicity of dinotefuran. This chemical insecticide is strong enough to destroy the central nervous system of termite, but it is also safer than more potent chemicals that can be problematic for indoor applications. It also contains the active ingredient Fipronil used in Termidor SC. It’s an excellent complement to liquid termiticides and is highly recommended.
