GENERAL INFORMATION

G E N T R O L® A E R O S O L contains GENTROL® I n s e c t Growth Regulator. The IGR disrupts the normal development of immature cockroaches, drain flies, fruit flies, bedbugs, and stored product pests (examples of these pests include: Indian meal moths, rice moths, tobacco moths, red flour beetles, confused flour beetles, lesser grain borers, merchant grain beetles, sawtooth grain beetles, warehouse beetles, cigarette beetles, and Dermestid beetles). Roaches and bedbugs exposed to GENTROL AEROSOL will become adults incapable of reproducing.

 

GENTROL AEROSOL also disrupts the normal life cycle of drain flies, fruit flies, and stored product pests; thus, killing these insects during the pupal stage. In both cases, the cycle of an infestation ends. Use GENTROL AEROSOL in areas such as, but not limited to: apartment buildings, bakeries, bottling facilities, breweries, boiler rooms, cafeterias, candy plants, grocery stores, day care centers, hospitals, residential homes, hotels/motels, office buildings, kitchens, laboratories, cereal processing facilities, manufacturing plants, mausoleums, meat and produce canneries, nursing homes, restaurants, schools, locker rooms, stores, taverns, warehouses, pet stores, as well as various modes of transportation, such as aircraft, buses, trucks, trailers, rail cars, and marine vessels.

 

Use GENTROL AEROSOL as a general surface spray, spot, or crack and crevice application. Prior to using in commercial or residential food areas, please refer to the Food Handling Establishment Applications section of the label. The preparations prior to treatment and the clean-up after application described are also to be followed for residential use.

 

GENTROL AEROSOL is non-repellent and should be considered an important component in a cockroach baiting program. Baits are an important part of a total cockroach control program but are not a complete solution. GENTROL AEROSOL can reach those nymphs that fail to forage to baits and the IGR stimulates egg bearing females to leave the harborage and feed.  Shake well before use. GENTROL AEROSOL is a ready to-use pressurized spray for application to a variety of locations and surfaces to control pests. Apply GENTROL AEROSOL as a general surface spray, spot, or crack and crevice application. Use the supplied extension tube for crack and crevice applications.

 

To apply as a general surface or spot application, hold can 10″ to 12″ away from surface to be treated. Use a sweeping motion over the surface to be treated for complete coverage. This product applies as a light foam that dissipates readily. An oily residue may be apparent in heavy applications. The visibility of the dissipating foam eliminates the possibility of missed areas. For crack and crevice applications, use the supplied extension tube and apply to wall voids, hollow table legs, tube iron, gondola frames, voids, and supports. GENTROL AEROSOL is generally non staining but in questionable situations, apply a small amount in an inconspicuous location.

 

Apply GENTROL

 

AEROSOL once a month for continuous protection, or more often if conditions warrant.

 

GENERAL SURFACE APPLICATION

Apply the GENTROL AEROSOL at a rate of 16 ounces per 1200 sq ft of surface area. Apply to areas such as: walls, floors, ceilings, attics, basements, gondolas, and shelving. NOTE: Prior to treating around air ducts, shut off ventilation system. Turn on air-handling systems immediately after application.

 

SPOT OR CRACK AND CREVICE APPLICATIONS

Apply GENTROL AEROSOL as a crack and crevice application using the supplied extension tube. Apply directly to areas such as: wall voids, pipe chases, crevices, and false ceilings. Apply spot treatments to areas such as: storage areas, closets, around water pipes, doors, windows, and behind and under appliances/equipment, furniture and beds.

 

 

To treat bedbugs, apply to harborage points mentioned above; in addition, under beds, bottom side of box springs (do not treat linens and mattresses), under and behind night stands, to points where carpet and wall meet, cracks in cove base, molding, and other areas where bedbugs harborage. Retreat at 14 days for heavy infestations.

 

WAREHOUSES (NON-FOOD)

Apply GENTROL AEROSOL as a general surface, spot, or crack and crevice treatment in non-food storage warehouses. Apply to all areas that may harbor pests, including under and between pallets.

 

FOOD HANDLING ESTABLISHMENT APPLICATIONS

Apply GENTROL AEROSOL as a general surface spray, spot, or crack and crevice treatment in both food and non-food areas of food handling establishments. These establishments are defined as: places other than private residences where exposed food is held, prepared, processed, or served. It also includes areas where food items are: received, prepared, packaged, and stored, as well as enclosed food processing systems (mills, dairies, etc.).

 

 For control of drain flies and fruit flies: Apply GENTROL AEROSOL to areas of fly breeding. For drains, apply product into and around the downspout and catch basin area. Coat these areas thoroughly as fly larva develop in the scum buildup on the sides of drain pipes. Repeat applications at 2 to 4 week intervals depending upon the severity of infestation.

 

 

SPOT OR CRACK AND CREVICE APPLICATIONS

Prior to application, remove or cover all food items in area to be treated. Do not apply directly to food or food-handling surfaces.

 

SURFACE SPRAY APPLICATION

Do not apply directly to food products.

 

GENERAL AREA TREATMENTS

Prior to application, remove or cover all food items. Also, cover all food contact surfaces (i.e., equipment, benches, shelves – areas where exposed food may be handled, held, prepared, processed, or served). If left uncovered, these areas must be thoroughly cleaned by a method capable of removing chemical residues after treatment.

 

 

PARTIAL AREA TREATMENTS

Apply GENTROL AEROSOL to partial areas of food handling establishments in cases of small or localized infestations. For partial area treatments, a perimeter of at least 6 feet must be established, from all food handling surfaces.

 

 

PANTRY/CABINETS, SMALL FOOD STORAGE AREAS

Apply as a surface spray, crack and crevice spray, or spot treatment to pantry and cupboard shelves or other areas where food is stored. Prior to spraying, remove all food containers and foodstuffs. Do not replace food containers or foodstuffs until spray has dried. Dispose of any infested food packages or materials.

 

WAREHOUSES (FOOD)

Apply GENTROL AEROSOL as a general surface spray, spot, or crack and crevice treatment in warehouses where packaged food items are stored in such a way that direct contact with the foodstuff is not anticipated.
