Does Gentrol Aerosol IGR - 16 oz. can affect insects on contact, or is it in the air like the Gentrol Point Source?

I have mealworms that I feed to my pet gecko, so I'm worried about using Gentrol point source as I think it might get affect their growth cycle. Does the aerosol spray only affect bugs if they crawl over it/come into contact with it? For example if I spray it on the floor or into cracks/crevices? Or does it have a range of 75 sq ft like the point source? Is it transmitted through vapors in the air like the point source?


Gentrol Aerosol is the same thing as Gentrol Point Source Stations just in an aerosol form and will work in the same way by transmitting its vapor through the air to disrupt the life cycle. Gentrol is not an insecticide, therefore it will not directly kill mealworms or any other insects. Since mealworms are an immature stage of an insect, though, we recommend you don't use Gentrol in the area the mealworms are kept.
