A popular active ingredient used in various professional-grade pesticides is Dinotefuran. Dinotefuran is most notably a staple active ingredient in the Alpine brand of insecticide products.

What Is Dinotefuran?

Dinotefuran is a neonicotinoid insecticide. Dinotefuran was first registered in 2004 to the EPA and can be used to control plant-damaging pests such as aphids, whiteflies, thrips, leafhoppers, leafminers, sawflies, mole cricket, white grubs, lacebugs, billbugs, beetles, mealybugs, and cockroaches. It is commonly used in agricultural settings but has also expanded use to being applied around residential and commercial buildings and structures.

Dinotefuran comes in a variety of forms--from liquid insecticide concentrates to dusts, foams and even gel baits.

How Dinotefuran Works

Mode of Action

Dinotefuran is a neonicotinoid which is a chemical designed to mimic the effects of nicotine, found commonly in tobacco. Dinotefuran is also systemic, meaning that it is absorbed into the plants that it is applied on and moves through the entire plant body down to the root. Dinotefuran's mode of action is achieved by disrupting stimuli transmission within the nervous system of the targeted insect when the insect either ingests or absorbs the active into its body.

Dinotefuran blocks certain neuronal pathways that are much more common in insects than mammals. That is why the chemical is much more toxic to insects than humans or animals. As a result of this blockage, the insect begins to overproduce acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter, resulting in the insect's paralysis, and eventually their death.

Benefits of Dinotefuran

Dinotefuran can be used in various agricultural, home, and landscaping settings. The active ingredient is systemic and can eliminate cockroaches, ants, termites, bed bugs and flying and crawling pests.

Drawbacks of Dinotefuran

Dinotefuron has shown to be toxic to bees and other beneficial insects so extra care has to be taken to restrict applications to areas where bees do not forage.

Is Dinotefuran Safe?

When applied according to label directions, dinotefuran is safe to use and apply in and around the home. As always, you should wear the proper PPE before handling and applying Dinotefuran products (gloves, protective eyewear, safety mask).

Keep children and pets away from the area being treated until the application product has completely dried which usually takes a half-hour to an hour. Once dried, children and pets can be brought back into the treated area without worry.

What To Expect

Depending on the formulation that is being used (spray, dust, etc.) the time it takes to kill the target insect may very. Reapplications may also need to occur depending on the severity of the infestation. Dinotefuran does not have a long residual effect, so you will need to check with the label to see what the exact interval is between applications.
