Pest Control Tips

IGRs (Insect Growth Regulators) Provide Long-Term Control Against Pests

As a pest control treatment option, insect growth regulators (IGRs) mark significant progress in the industry. IGRs can help provide long-term results by preventing reproduction among pests that escape adulticide knockdown treatments.

Active ingredients limit reinfestation.

The active ingredients in IGRs disrupt insects' normal growth processes. For example, (S)-Hydroprene, the active ingredient in Zoëcon's Gentrol® IGR Concentrate, prevents pests from maturing into breeding adults. Pests' inability to reproduce facilitates long-term control and stops the cycle of infestation.

Gentrol IGR has the unique ability to translocate to harborages and other areas that might have been missed during other treatments. Translocation allows the IGR to reach hard-to-treat areas like cracks and crevices.

Gentrol IGR is labeled for use in food handling establishments. It's also perfect for other accounts, such as nursing homes, hospitals and day care centers.

Tank mixing: a long-term strategy.

For long-term results, tank mixing has proven efficacy. A dilutable, such as Catalyst® Insecticide, provides immediate knockdown, while an insect growth regulator, such as Gentrol IGR Concentrate, inhibits reproduction. Together they provide long-term control of cockroach populations. For non-residential use only.

Gentrol Point Source® is another IGR option. It offers discreet delivery of the product without measuring, mixing or spraying. Cockroaches don't need to come in direct contact with the device for it to be effective. Lasting up to 90 days, it is ideal for areas where compressed air sprayers aren't a viable option.

Precor® IGR Concentrate

Target Pest = Fleas

  • Effective, long-lasting indoor control of pre-adult fleas - up to seven full months.
  • Contains the Insect Growth Regulator, (S)-Methoprene to stop pre-adult flea development - and future infestations.
  • Targets the hard-to-reach areas where pre-adult fleas live.

How It Works

Precor® IGR Concentrate is an important element of Integrated Pest Management (IPM), because it controls the pre-adult fleas that make up 99% of a typical flea population. Only Precor IGR's molecules move to the places pre-adult fleas live, like the base of carpet fibers and between furniture cushions - in short, the sources of a flea infestation. Precor IGR targets fleas in the egg and larval stages of development. As a result, pre-adult fleas cannot develop into adults to produce new infestations of breeding, biting adults.

Application Sites

  • Carpets and rugs
  • Furniture and cushions
  • Pet sleeping and bedding areas

Precor® Plus Fogger

Target Pest = fleas

  • Ideal for large-area treatment - one fogger treats 750 sq. feet.
  • Also well-suited to cluttered areas like basements and garages.
  • Contains Precor® IGR to prevent flea reinfestations for up to seven months, plus Permethrin for quick knockdown of adult fleas.
  • Water-based, no-odor formulation won't stain or leave an unsightly residue.

How It Works

The Permethrin in Precor® Plus Fogger immediately kills adult fleas, while Precor IGR prevents pre-adult fleas from creating new infestations of breeding, biting adults. Precor IGR molecules penetrate down to the hard-to-reach places where pre-adult fleas hide - especially carpet and upholstery fibers, rugs, drapes, pet bedding and floor cracks.

Application Sites

  • Large indoor treatment areas
  • Cluttered areas like basements and garages

Precor 2000® Plus Premise Spray

Target Pests = fleas, ticks, ants, cockroaches

Precor 2000® Plus Premise Spray is a premise spray that packs a fast adulticide punch with two adulticides, Phenothrin and Permethrin, along with the lasting effects of Precor IGR.

  • Covers 2,000 square feet.
  • Fine mist, low odor formula that dries without leaving a residue.
  • Water-based for better coverage.
  • Heavier-than-air molecules go deep into the base of carpets and upholstery to control flea larvae.
  • The best way to rid households of fleas and reduce callbacks.

How It Works

Precor 2000 Plus Premise Spray contains Permethrin and Phenothrin to kill adult fleas fast. It also contains Precor IGR to prevent reinfestation for up to seven months. Precor IGR penetrates deep into the base of carpet and upholstery fibers, where pre-adult fleas live. Precor IGR targets fleas in the egg and larval stages of development, preventing them from producing new infestations of breeding, biting adults. Ultimately, that means more satisfied customers - and fewer costly callbacks.

Application Sites

  • Homes
  • Garages
  • Kennels
  • Carpets and rugs
  • Wood flooring and tile
  • Drapery
  • Furniture and cushions
  • Pet sleeping and bedding areas

Petcor® Flea Spray 

Target Pest = fleas

  • Contains natural pyrethrins to immediately kill adult fleas.
  • Precor IGR, an Insect Growth Regulator that kills flea eggs for 63 days after application.
  • An effective addition to a flea control Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategy.
  • Approved for use on dogs, cats, puppies and kittens.
  • Convenient - after you deliver it as part of your service, customers simply apply Petcor by spraying as needed.

How It Works

The mobility of dogs and cats makes it difficult to treat all potential areas of flea infestation. So, it's important to consider a flea control formulation that goes where they do - especially one that targets pre-adult fleas, the source of reinfestations. Petcor® Flea Spray contains Precor® IGR, an Insect Growth Regulator that targets flea eggs on the animal by sterilizing them.

Application Sites
