Gentrol IGR Tip-n-Measure isn't an insecticide. It's an insect growth regulator, also called an IGR. It can be sprayed in many different areas to target the pests where they live and breed, such as in cracks and crevices and wall voids. Gentrol's mode of action may not kill adult insects, but it does prevent the pests from reproducing and causing future infestations. It comes in a convenient tip-n-measure jug for easy measuring and pouring.
How Gentrol IGR Tip-n-Measure Works
Gentrol IGR Tip-n-Measure contains hydroprene as the active ingredient. It's not like the chemicals that are used in traditional insecticides, such as pyrethroids. Hydroprene stops reproduction in the pests and targets the larval stages. It prevents the immature insects from maturing to the pupal stage, ending the infestation before it occurs.
Where to Use Gentrol IGR
Gentrol can be used in cracks and crevices and in other places where pests are found. Spray it in homes and apartment complexes, as well as in nursing homes and other residential living areas. It can be applied in commercial structures to prevent infestations. Use it as a spray or a fogger in hotels, warehouses and restaurants. It's labeled as safe to use in food-handling areas either as a spray or a fog. It can also be applied in schools and supermarkets, as well as in retail shops and other areas where pests may cause an infestation.
Gentrol IGR Tip-n-Measure targets stored product pests, which include insects like flour moths and rice weevils. It's also an effective pest control product for cockroach control, reducing the population within days or weeks of application depending on the severity. It's also effective against flying pests such as fruit flies. Resistant insects such as bed bugs are also prone to the active ingredient in Gentrol IGR. Though this IGR won't kill the adults, it will prevent them from developing and growing into mature insects.
