Product Overview

Compare to Precor IGR Concentrate (same active ingredient). Meteor IGR breaks the flea life cycle by inhibiting the ability of adult fleas to lay eggs and reproduce, making it an essential part of any indoor flea control program. Once applied, Meteor IGR lasts up to 210 days (7 months).  Meteor can be safely applied to carpets, rugs, pet bedding and furniture.  1 oz. of Meteor IGR treats 1,500 sq ft.

Please note:  Meteor IGR does not kill adult fleas. Instead, it stops adult fleas from laying eggs, eventually breaking the flea life-cycle and reducing the infestation gradually over time.  Therefore, we recommend using this product in combination with an adulticide that kills adult fleas, such as D-Fense SC Insecticide.  You can mix Meteor IGR with 1 oz. of D-Fense SC in a gallon of water and spray both products at the same time!

    Meteor IGR Concentrate & Flea Control

    By Bob on 12/05/2012

    Verified Purchase

    I have three rescued cats. Two do not even attempt to go outside but one sneaks out whenever he gets an open door long enough to do so. He is always willing and ready to come back inside his home safe haven after a couple of hours. The "wanderer" has managed to bring a few fleas back into the house. Now we have fleas. Not a bad infestation but found a few on the "indoor" cats but we realize if the few are not dealt with soon, fleas can get out of control fast. We purchased and used Meteor IGR Concentrate with Conquer Liquid Insecticide with hopes of quickly ending our flea problem. Just made the first application. As you may or may not know with flea control, a second application will be necessary at the two week point to ensure the demise of all four flea stages. I am sure it will be effective since I have used it in the past, many years ago. Good stuff but the instructions for this product and flea control must be followed explicitly. Carpeted areas must be vacuumed thoroughly and empty and clean vacuum.... If this isn't done, it just is not going to work no matter what chemical you use or how often you us it.

    my savior

    By Clark on 04/13/2013

    I moved into a house that had one of the worst flea infestations I have ever seen. The yard, The house, hell the neighborhood. After one treatment in combo with an adult flea killer, My infestation was cut down by 90 percent. after subsequent treatments the house is free of fleas. now its time to tackle the yard.

    METEOR IS GREAT FOR CONTROL

    By Stephanie on 10/10/2015

    Verified Purchase

    I had a great deal of success controlling the flea infestation with Meteor IGR. Its highly affordable too! It gave me hope that those stubborn fleas would not be in my apt. forever. HOWEVER it couldn't seem to eradicate the fleas. Each infestation is different, but for my severe infestation, Meteor only controlled the fleas so that I didn't get bit so much. I wouldn't recommend it for the tougher infestations of fleas. Great for lighter infestations though.

    Expert ResponseExpert response:
    Please note that Meteor does not kill fleas. Meteor prevents immature fleas from developing into mature breeding adults. It is recommended that you mix Meteor with an insecticide for flea control.

Q
I'm reluctant to use Meteor IGR Concentrate around my foster cats and kittens.

Is Meteor safe to use inside where my foster cats roam - all over :) We sent the mother and six kittens to be spayed/neutered and they came back crawling. It's gone from bad to worse quickly. Any feedback/suggestions?

A
Meteor can be used indoors, just not everywhere fleas like to hide. Your cat and kittens are safe as long as they are out of the area until it has dried. For treating your floors, pet bedding, and furniture a product like Ultracide or NyGuard Plus would be a better method. Both of these products include an adulticide (similar to the bifen) and an IGR to control the fleas and can safely be sprayed on almost all surfaces in the home. Please review our article on How To Get Rid of Fleas for the best methods to get rid of fleas as quickly as possible in the home. Feel free to contact us with any other questions you have.

Q
Should i use Bifen and Meteor IGR for indoor fleas?

Are Bifen and Meteor IGR together effective in treating adult and larval fleas/eggs indoors?

A
The Bifen and Meteor IGR are both great products, and a great combination for fleas. However these would not be the best products for an indoor treatment as they can not be used in all the areas where the fleas will harbor and hide. You can use these products outdoors in areas where the fleas most likely originated before being brought into the home, to keep more from coming in. For treating your floors, pet bedding, and furniture a product like Ultracide or NyGuard Plus would be a better method. Both of these products include an adulticide (similar to the bifen) and an IGR to control the fleas and can safely be sprayed on almost all surfaces in the home.
