Gentrol IGR will not kill bedbugs or roaches. While you can use it alone we do not recommend you doing so. The bedbugs and roaches that are already mature at the time of the application will continue to mate and reproduce as the growth regulator will not stop this process. The IGR will only stop immature insects from reach sexual maturity and it is not 100% effective on any given generation. Using a growth regulator in conjucntion with an insecticde and a comprehensive elimination program would be recommended. You can learn more about roach and bedbug control by reading our Roach Treatment Guide and our Bedbug Treament Guide.
