Fleas have been around for centuries and have been hosting on animals and people. Why not reduce the number of fleas in your house before it gets out of control? A flea IGR (insect growth regulator) dramatically reduces the population of fleas before they are even able to reproduce. Flea IGRs may be the most crucial part of flea control. These liquid concentrates have been developed by the leading manufacturers of flea control products so that you can easily spray them in areas of infestation. Up until a few years ago, flea IGRs were available to only licensed professionals, because it was unclear whether or not they were safe for use inside the homes. However, IGRs have been tested for safety and have been proven effective. They are now available through pest control supply stores.

Flea IGRs that are provided at Pest Mall are the same flea control products that are being used by professional pest control management companies minus the expensive service fees that they charge.

What is A Flea IGR?

IGR stands for insect growth regulator. For many of the insects that reproduce at an extremely high rate, an IGR is a crucial insecticide in gaining control over an infestation. IGRs actually do not have a killing effect; instead it alters the biology of the insect. Physically, insects, as does all other living creatures, must mature to a certain stage before they are able to become fertilized and reproduce. Therefore, flea IGRs will play a critical role in flea control by prohibiting the immature flea nymphs from developing all the way and keeps them from laying eggs. Ultimately, flea IGRs halt the life cycle and prevent future infestations. Keep in mind that IGRs do not have a killing effect and will not kill adult fleas.

How to use Flea IGRs

It is important that when you are doing flea control, you are paying attention to all the areas that your pets might rest often. These are areas where flea eggs and larvae will fall out and burrow in. Also, fleas lay eggs deep inside carpeting and cracks and crevices of the room. IGRs can be mixed in the same water solution as concentrates or other killing insecticides without neutralizing the insecticide and so they are easy to use and will not require a second application. Many of the flea control products like aerosol sprays or foggers already have IGR mixed into the solution and so a separate application is not required. However, for long term control, it is ultimately better to use a residual liquid spray with an IGR concentrate. Typically, one ounce of the IGR concentrate will be added to the gallon solution of flea spray and applied in areas where your pets rest, in cracks and crevices like the baseboard area of each room, around the window and door frames, and etc. IGR can also be applied outside in areas of harborage. It does not stain and will not destroy paint. Also, once it is completely dry, it is safe for contact and will not harm children or non-target animals.

Keep in mind that all pesticides have a product label and it is required that product labels are thoroughly reviewed before it is applied.

Q. What company should I choose one power spraying Cy kick, the other power spraying a product called demand cs. Both coming on a quarterly basis
I've decided to use a pest service on my home in Austin tx, I know the heat breaks down product as well as rains that we get in the Austin area every once in a while, I've broke my decision down to two companies, one is saying the product they will power spray is Cy-kick. The other company says they will be power spraying the product Demand cs. My main bugs that we are dealing with are scorpions, spiders, Beatles, and an occasional wasp.. Both companies are around the same price both wanting to come out quarterly. What's the main differences and if you were in my shoes and with your expertise, which product would you choose to be treated on your home for those specific issues.
A.   We recommend using Demand CS because it is a micro-encapsulated product. Therefore, Demand CS has a longer residual time.
