Product Overview

One insect growth regulator, zero insect survivors.

Archer® insect growth regulator controls populations of mosquitoes, cockroaches, fleas, flies, ticks and other pests to prevent them from becoming egg-laying adults both indoors and outdoors.

Key Features

  • Features a unique mode of action that interferes with the development process of eggs, larvae, pupae or nymphs of many common insects and arthropod pests, including those that may be resistant to other insecticides
  • Provides UV protection in formulation to ensure long-lasting flea control in outdoor settings for up to 16 weeks
  • Can be tank-mixed with adulticides outdoors, such as Demand® CS insecticide with iCAP™ technology
  • Its low volatility allows Archer to be applied indoors, outdoors and in food-handling establishments (see product label) without odor or airborne residue

Key Benefits

  • Improves control of pests like fleas and flies by breaking their reproductive cycle
  • Improves the performance of other insecticides by disrupting the reproductive cycle, thus reducing pest pressure
  • Photostability provides long residual to better control populations of fleas, cockroaches, flies, mosquitoes and other nuisance pests
  • Unique action against arthropods and compatibility with other insecticides makes Archer ideal as part of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategy
