Archer IGR

Insect Growth Regulator for Use In
Flea and Roach Elimination, Prevention

Archer is an IGR (insect growth regulator or growth inhibitor,) a material that inhibits the growth of certain insect pests such as fleas, roaches and several pantry pests.  When used in cockroach elimination Nylar (the active ingredient in Archer) prevents the immature stages (nymphs) of cockroaches from reaching the mature adult stage.  In its immature stage a cockroach cannot reproduce, effectively breaking the cycle.  When used in flea elimination Nylar prevents the eggs and larvae in the treated flea population from maturing into reproducing, biting adult fleas.  Other IGR products are more pest specific.  Gentrol and Gentrol Point Source (containing Hydroprene) are generally used in cockroach elimination.  Precor (containing Methoprene) is used in flea elimination and is frequently used to help eliminate and/ or prevent cigarette beetle populations.

Nylar is not an insecticide

Used alone, Archer IGR will help prevent a flea or roach infestation but is most often used with an adulticide (or insecticide) in flea elimination and roach elimination programs.  For fleas, use 1 ounce of Archer IGR concentrate per 1,000 to 1,500 square feet of area to be treated.  For roaches, use 2 ounces of concentrate per 1,000 to 1,500 square feet.

Unlike Precor (Methoprene,) Nylar is photostable and can be used outdoors in flea prevention or flea elimination.  When spraying outdoors, use 1 ounce Archer and 1 to 1 1/2 ounces Permethrin Pro per 1,000 square feet.

Archer IGR can be tank-mixed with insecticides such as Suspend SC (for indoor flea control), Professional Grade Permethrin (for outdoor flea control) or Demon WP and other Cypermethrin products (for cockroach control.)
