It is bad enough when an insect infestation takes over your house. It gets even worse when you know that they are social insects by nature, reproduce quickly, and create huge colonies. Amongst some of the household pests that take over a structure in this manner, one of the most persistent insects are cockroaches. However, what if you were told that you can stop their reproduction cycle and stop them from building colonies that are just too large to handle? Pest Mall provides a variety of Roach IGRs that will prohibit them from maturing and ultimately, reproducing.

If there are any questions on how Roach IGRs work or which one will best fit the cockroach infestation that has invaded your structure, feel free to talk to one of Pest Malls representatives at 1-800-788-4142.

What is a Roach IGR?

IGR stands for Insect Growth Regulator. IGRs are chemicals that disrupt and halt the developmental stage of insects. Ultimately, because they are not completely maturing, they are unable to reproduce. For roach infestations, roach IGR is crucial because they prevent roaches from shedding or developing their exoskeleton. Cockroaches mature by molting and so getting rid of their old exoskeleton and forming a new one is a dire part of cockroach development. Because they cannot continue in development, they are not able to reproduce. Many pest control technicians like to use the term “birth control” for roaches because IGRs keep populations to a minimum and prevent future infestations from occurring. Although IGRs do not have a killing effect, they are a crucial part of cockroach control. Also, even though IGRs do not have a killing effect, they do have a residual of about 3 months and so even after it is dry, the roach IGR will continue to have effects for about 3 months.

Roach IGR Formulations

Pest Mall offers a variety of Roach IGRs that come in different formulations that will best fit the area that you are targeting and the size of the infestation you are experiencing. Roach IGRs can come in a concentrate, IGR station, or an aerosol spray. Roach IGR in the concentrate form is diluted in water and sprayed. It can be mixed with most other liquid concentrates which make for an easy one application. The concentrate is sprayed in cracks and crevices or used for spot treatment. Aerosol sprays come in a pre-mixed pressurized form that can be applied in cracks and crevices or used as a spot treatment. Aerosols are easy to use because there is no need to purchase a sprayer or dilute it in water. The last formulation of Roach IGR that Pest Mall provides is the Gentrol Point Source IGR Station. Roach IGR Stations can be placed in target areas like countertops, floor corners, under sinks, and etc. These are also pre-mixed and easy to use.

How to Effectively Use Roach IGR

Depending on the area that you are targeting, you will select a roach IGR accordingly. For crack and crevice treatment, it may be the best to consider using a concentrate or an aerosol. Because the chemicals that are used in the roach IGRs will not neutralize most of the chemicals that are used in the roach insecticides, they can be applied in the same places where the insecticides are applied. These are going to be areas like under appliances like the stove, refrigerator, washing machines, along the base board areas of each rooms, under and behind the toilet, and etc. The point source roach stations can be placed in more vulnerable and open areas like on top of counters, windowsills, next to sinks, next to stoves, and etc. because they are safely placed in tamper-free plastic stations.

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.
