Insect Growth Regulators (IGR)

Insect Growth Regulators (IGR) – Insect Growth Regulators (IGR) are wonderful pest control products because the active ingredients only affect insects and other closely related arthropods.  They do not affect animals such as dogs, cats, and humans.  These animals do not possess the biological systems that the IGRs target in insects.  IGRs are used against such insects as cockroaches, fleas and mosquitoes.  When they are used against roaches, the adult roach’s wings are typically twisted, curled, or crinkled in appearance.  They do not allow target insects to develop properly, or in other words, they “regulate the insect’s growth”, hence the name Insect Growth Regulators.  Please read and follow all pesticide labeling.
