    NyGuard works!

    By Koriander on 10/31/2014

    Verified Purchase

    NyGuard has been an essential for us for a little over a year now. Our two cats have seizure disorders and we have to be extremely careful what spot-on treatment we use as well as what is used to treat our home for fleas. Using "all natural" treatments didn't work effectively enough in our situation. We've used this product three times now, taking care to treat as specified and at eight month intervals. The cats have had no adverse reactions and this IGR has been an effective part of our flea control.

    Excellent Customer Service

    By Bob on 12/04/2012

    Not that many times in today's world I can honestly say "Excellent Customer Service" but DoMyOwnPestControl qualifies. Placed my order and two days later received a phone call that they did not have enough product in stock to complete my order BUT offered me three options, ship when all were in stock, cancel order or ship partial and then ship remainder when it arrived in about a week. Opted for partial ship and received the product in 2 days and then the remainder about 5 days later. Just Outstanding service.

How to use Talstar P and NyGuard IGR for general pest control including mosquitoes.

Hi. I want to mix Talstar and NyGuard for general pest control including mosquitos. I saw on this site that you recommend 3ml to a 1 gal Talstar (1oz) solution for fleas. But another website I visited said 4-8ml of NyGuard per gallon Talstar (1oz) solution for mosquitos. I'm trying to control a broad range, especially spiders and mosquitos. Which ratio should I use?


Per the Nyguard IGR product label instructions you can use varying rates.  You use anywhere between 4 ml - 12 ml per gal and then apply over 1000 - 1500 sqft.  Talstar is mixed at 1 oz/gal and that generally covers 1000 sqft so when mixing with the NyGuard IGR you would want to use 3 ml up to 8 ml with that 1 gallon of Talstar.  In general your first application should use the higher rates.

Is NyGuard EZ1 better than Gentrol IGR for a carpet beetle infestation?

Is NyGuard EZ1 the same as NyGuard IGR? Just in a smaller size? Does it work better than Gentrol IGR for carpet beetles? Thanks.

Nyguard EZ 1 is the same product as Nyguard IGR just in a smaller 1 oz container. Both Gentrol IGR and Nyguard IGR are labeled for carpet beetles and both products will provide similar results. Be sure to thoroughly vacuum all carpeting to help speed up the elimination process. It will also be necessary for you to find and eliminate the source of the carpet beetle infestation for best results.

How long do you use Nyguard before you see crinkled wings?

I sprayed nyguard about a week ago.

It can take several weeks to see any roaches with crinkled wings. They will have to attempt to molt as they grow and after the molt you will see the deformity.
