                  FEATURES & BENEFITS

                  • 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
                  • 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

                    The Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes albopictus, is one of the most invasive vector mosquito species. Its affinity for cryptic, man-made breeding sites, especially those in urban or suburban settings, has resulted in its prolific spread. As a container-breeding mosquito, it prefers containers in shaded areas that can hold water for approximately one week (enough time to develop from egg to adult).
