Hydroprene

Insect Growth Regulator (IGR)

Hydroprene is not an adulticide (insecticide) but is a growth regulator that inhibits the maturity and growth of certain insect pests in their immature stages.  Young cockroaches (nymphs) exposed to this IGR are unable to reach maturity and will never reproduce.  Roaches have an exoskeleton or external skin that is shed and a new, larger skin replaces the old as the roach matures.  Hydroprene makes this maturing process very difficult, stopping or slowing the growth of the cockroach.
Even adult roaches are affected and might be seen with wrinkled of deformed wings.
The use of Hydroprene (in many cases) drastically reduces the need for contact insecticides or eliminates the need for insecticide sprays.  This has been a great asset for pest control professionals that implement integrated pest management programs in schools, nursing homes, hospitals, restaurants and other sensitive environments.

This IGR is the active ingredient used in Gentrol products such as Gentrol
Gentrol Point Source
, Gentrol Aerosol.  Hydroprene is not photostable and is for indoor use, only.  A new item from Whitmire that contains Hydroprene is BP100-Plus, a ready to use fogging solution.  Active ingredients - Pyrethrins and Hydroprene.  BP100-Plus fogging solution is a very clean product labeled for commercial food handling and homes.  Indoor electric fog machines (fogger) work great for this fogging solution.
Use this IGR when eliminating, controlling or preventing cockroaches (roaches) and many pantry pestsCigarette Beetles are a pantry pest that is not affected by Hydroprene; use Methoprene instead.  Can be tank mixed with adulticides (insecticides) or used alone.  Gentrol (previously called Gencor IGR) is usually tank mixed with Cypermethrin, Acephate or Deltamethrin concentrates for existing roach infestations.  Available in liquid concentrate, aerosol and in solid dispensers.
