Details

NyGuard IGR gets to the root cause of chronic insect infestations - the eggs, larvae or nymphs - and prevents them from maturing into reproductive adults thereby controlling future infestations. NyGuard IGR will cause morphological anomalies or changes and disrupt the expected insects' state of development, leading to sterility or death. When adults are present, NyGuard is commonly used in combination with a non-IGR insecticide. This method results in rapid eradication of adults and deposits a base level of NyGuard IGR. Since this product has a long residual, it remains in place for up to seven (7) months to actively disrupt the development of any immature stages that have yet to appear, or which were not susceptible to the insecticide product used to control adult insects.

Features:

  • NyGuard IGR has the broadest spectrum of insects on its label.
  • NyGuard IGR is 10 times more active than Gentrol.
  • NyGuard IGR is effective both indoors and outdoors.
  • NyGuard IGR may be used in food and non-food areas.
  • NyGuard IGR keeps working for seven months.

Directions:

Apply NyGuard as a diluted spray or ULV/fogger to prevent eggs, larvae and nymphs from maturing into reproductive adults. Apply NyGuard in combination with a non-IGR adulticide to knockdown and kill existing adult populations while breaking the cycle of your toughest insect pests.

    Sprayed for fleas got prehatched mosquito's

    By Norma on 07/10/2012

    Verified Purchase

    We used a combination of Nyguard and Talstar 1 early in June. We got an immediate kill on fleas, and other nasty bugs outside, but I wasn't expecting the destruction of the majority of the Mosquito eggs. I have lived in this house in Florida for 21 years. For 21 years I had to stay inside much of the time, at dusk especially but also all day and all night because our area had so many mosquitos. A lot didn't seem to be stopped by repellants either. We had a long dry spell and then about a week and a half after we sprayed, it begain to rain some every day, then it rained all day for several days. We needed it badly but I wasn't looking forward to being swarmed by mosquitos. I was astonished! We have had very few even at dusk, and those who managed to hatch are strange. They fly slow enough so that I can kill them before they ever land. It is like they are can't navigate normally. This is the first summer I have not gotten even one bite. I have been able to enjoy the outside again for the first time ever at this house. I reordered the same items and intend to spray one more time before the month of July is over. Just some advice to those who have houses that back up to woods, we sprayed the wooded area as well as the yard. We sprayed our neighbors yard and the small wooded area behind her house. A lot of mosquitos breed under damp leaves that pile up on the ground here in Florida. Well not anymore at may house! We even sprayed across the road in the brush. Good thing too, because they discovered the mosquitos were carrying West Nile Virus in our area. Best thing I ever did in the rhelm of insect control!

    I am blown away!

    By John on 07/31/2012

    Verified Purchase

    This is the very best pest control I have ever used! I had an issue with fleas in my dog pen. I could not get them killed out for nothing until I was told about NyGuard. I used every product I could think of and spent a small fortune! A flea or two would attach itself to me when I would clean my dog pen, and next thing I knew is they were in my house too! NOT ANYMORE! This NyGuard mixed with Demize, totally killed out the fleas...inside and out in 24hrs! And they stayed gone. Now I don't even need flea collars for my dogs! Thanks for such a great product. Send me a hat or something so I can advertise for you, because your product is the best on the market...hands down! I am going to purchase more of this product so I never run out. I NEVER toot someones horn unless they deserve it...and NyGuard deserves it! So, TOOT TOOT!

    A true KNOCKOUT

    By David on 09/15/2011

    Verified Purchase

    After fleas had set up house in ours we attempted to get rid of them in the usual manners (fogging and flea powder). We got desperate and were about to burn down the house (not really) and then I found this site. What a life, and house, saver. Less than 2 hours after application the fleas stopped biting and we have never had a problem since. I use it on my balcony for season long wasp and spider control and swear by it. You can't miss when you pick this product.

    This Product Works!!!!

    By Marianne on 06/07/2011

    I purchased this product as a safer product to control indoor and outdoor insects (mosquitoes, fleas, flies, roaches, ants, etc....). Nothing bothers me inside or outside after 3 months!!! It's a little slow to start, but once you get it applied around your house and inside your house, your problems are over!!! I had continual repeat flea issues from my Welsh Corgi. I treated the inside of the house and also treated the outside areas where she laid. NO MORE FLEAS!!!! And it does wonders in keeping mosquitoes under control, too!!!!

    Excellent product

    By Li on 05/08/2013

    The person who was talking about how her cats still have fleas weeks later does not know how this product works. It stops the next generation from growing into viable adults. If you have fleas, you have to do a multi-angled approach and not just spray & pray. Seriously, if you don't know what you're doing. Don't buy the product. I've used this for years on all sorts of issues and it's as close to a magic wand as you're gonna get.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Is Nyguard better or just more concentrated than Archer IGR? I see they have the same active ingredient.

Which, in your opinion is more a effective IGR?

A
Archer Igr and Nyguard Igr are both very effective IGRs. The biggest differences between the two is the ability to hold up to sunlight outdoors. Archer is photostable for 14 days where as the NyGuard is photostable for 4-6 months. NyGuard also has a wider range of pests that are covered by its ability to sterilize and inhibit the reproductive cycles.

Q
I'm using Onslaught to control ticks. I'm thinking I should add an IGR. Is NyGuard IGR a good choice?

Onslaught's Technical Bulletin recommends NyGuard IGR for a tank mix IGR, but NyGuard's label doesn't list ticks.

A
Nyguard IGR does indeed list ticks on the product and Nyguard IGR would be a great choice for tick control when mixed with Onslaught.

Q
How often can I spray Onslaught and Nyguard IGR together for bird mites?

I'm thinking about ordering Onslaught to combine with NyGuard for a bird mite infestation. I realize that NyGuard isn't approved for bird mites, but I've heard success from others with this problem. I'm wondering how often this combination be used? Also, I've already used the Precor IGR, and I'm worried about using another IGR on top of it. Thanks for your response.

A
We have had several customers tell us that they have successfully used Onslaught and NyGuard together for bird mite control. Unfortunately because neither product is actually labeled for bird mites, we can not give you a definitive re-treatment time. We can say that both products do allow re-treatments after 14 days if you see renewed insect activity indoors.  There should be no problem using NyGuard IGR in a home where you have previously used Precor IGR.

Q
Is NyGuard IGR safe to use in a vegetable garden?

It looks like that is where the fleas have made there home. If not, what can be used to treat the soil in an edible garden?

A
Nyguard IGR is not labeled to be used on a edible vegetable garden.  However, we do have a product called Malathion 57% which is labeled for gardens and will treat fleas.
