    Q
    What is the best IGR?
    I have used Gentral and Tekko but don't see much difference in control. I am looking for the best control of roaches, mosquitos, bed bugs ect.
    A
    NyGuard IGR is probably our top IGR both with one of the largest labels of pests that it stops the reproductive cycle on as well as length of time it holds up sunlight outdoors. Gentrol is the only IGR on the market to have claims that it works on bedbugs, but an IGR is not needed for controlling bedbugs if the treatments are being done appropriately with the right insecticide residual products. Make sure you are using the IGR, whether its Nyguard-Tekko-Gentrol, with the best insecticide for your needs. For roaches, mosquitoes, bed bugs and a huge variety of other pests most customers are using Temprid SC.

  • Asked by Andrew from Phoenix Az

    Q
    What's the completed mix AI percentage of Tekko Pro IGR?
    For example the Gentrol is .05 AI when diluted with water.
    A
    The Tekko Pro IGR has various recommended mixing ratios based on what insect you are treating. The Tekko Pro IGR is mixed at 1 oz per gallon, 1.5 oz per gallon, or 2 oz per gallon depending on the target pest. Therefore, depending on the mixure and amount of water used (1 gallon of water is the minimum recommended) then the percentage of active ingredient in the diluted solution will be 0.010% AI when using 1 oz per gallon, 0.015% AI when using 1.5 oz per gallon, and 0.02% AI when using 2 oz per gallon of water. Please note that the percentage of active ingredient listed above are based on a 1 gallon water dilution rate.

    Q
    You stated that bed bugs don't need an IGR if insecticide is applied correctly why do cockroaches need it?
    A

    There is not enough research backing the IGR's work on Bed Bugs. There is plenty of research and proof that IGR's if labeled for Roaches are very effective on their reproductive cycle.

    05/10/2017
    Q
    Can I mix Tekko Pro with Talastar P and ExiciterR to control Mosquitoes?
    A

    Yes the Talstar, ExciteR and Tekko Pro can be mixed together with water in the same sprayer for mosquito control. This combination of products offers the versatility of multiple concentrates that can be mixed and applied at the same time. As with all pests, it is crucial to address the environmental conditions that support mosquito populations. While it is unrealistic to expect 100% control of all mosquitoes, taking the time to do a good Inspection so that you can address both land and water conditions that favor mosquitoes will help you get the best results from your mosquito Treatment.

  • Asked by Larry from Apollo Beach, Fl
    05/20/2015
    Q
    Which is more effective for controlling ticks, Tekko Pro or Archer IGR?
    Since both contain 1.3% Pryridine but Tekko also contains Novaluron - 1.3% which would you recommend? I already use Permethrin SFR from you as a contact killer.
    A
    Tekko Pro IGR and Archer IGR are both labeled for ticks so they are both excellent options.
    The active ingredients in Tekko Pro IGR are the key behind behind the product's success, for two completely different reasons. Pripoxyfen is a juvenile hormone analog, which makes the pre-adult stage of the insect longer so that it dies before it can reproduce. Novaluron is a Chitin Sythesis Inhibitor, which stops the insect from being able to molt, making it more likely to die from outside influences. Archer IGR is different in the fact that it is photostable up to 14 days so it works in areas of direct sunlight. Both will essentially do the same thing.

  • Asked by Dan from Kansas City
    09/02/2018
    Q
    How does Tekko Pro sprayed on your yard work on mosquitoes since they develop to adults in water?
    A

    Per the Tekko Pro product label:  Tekko Pro may be used to control nuisance flies, gnats, midges, and mosquitoes by application into moist breeding areas (potted plants, moist debris or litter) or into areas holding standing water such as gutters, drains, pools and fountains. Treatments in Combination with an Adulticide: Use Tekko Pro in alternation or in a tank mix combination with an adulticide insecticide for quick knockdown and more rapid control of adult flying insect pests. As an IPM strategy, combining or alternating Tekko Pro with other types of chemicals, such as pyrethroid or other insecticides can reduce or prevent the development of genetic resistance to these adulticide insecticides.

  • Asked by Calvin from Fresno, Ca
    04/18/2019
    Q
    Which is best to use for fleas and mosquitos outdoor, Permethrin SFR, Riptide, NyGuard or Tekko in an outdoor fog?
    Using in outdoor cold digger
    A

    Permethrin SFR cannot be used in a fogger nor can Tekko Pro Insect Growth Regulator outside for fleas.  You could use Riptide and NyGuard IGR but Riptide is a contact kill only and will not provide any type of residual control.  A better option would really be to use Permethrin and Nyguard or Tekko in a pump sprayer as directed on each product label so that you can continued control.
