Archer Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) interferes with the growth cycle of pests with Pyriproxyfen. It provides a long-lasting residue (up to 7 months), stopping the development of egg-laying adults. An unique feature of Archer IGR is its ability to remain stable in sunlight up to 14 days.
Archer IGR - Broad Use Label
Archer IGR may be used indoors or outdoors; it can even be applied in standing water where mosquitoes breed. Archer can be used on many pests, such as roaches, fleas, flies and other pests. It controls nuisance flies, gnats, mosquitoes, carpet litter beetles, and midges, making it a very versatile insect growth regulator.
Used With Insecticides
It may be used alone or in combination of insecticides. Most people use it combined with insecticides to kill the adult insects. If Archer is used alone, expect a delayed solution as it takes time to break the pests' cycles.
With Roach Bait
Archer IGR may be used alone with roach baits, with no adverse effects. In fact, it causes the female pregnant roaches to drop their egg cases and return to feeding on the roach bait. Use Archer IGR where the roaches are running and hiding.
For Flea and Tick Control
Archer IGR is an excellent IGR to use for flea control. It can be used on carpets, furniture, rugs and pet sleeping areas. A recommended insecticide to mix with Archer would be FenvaStar ECO Cap. The Archer would cut the growth cycle and the FenvaStar ECO Cap would kill the current adult fleas or ticks.
