Hydroprene is an insect growth regulator (IGR). IGRs such as hydroprene are used to disrupt and impede the life cycle of insects in the egg and larvae stage of development. The idea behind IGR use is that if a given insect cannot reach adulthood, it cannot reproduce. Therefore hydroprene is like “birth control” for pests. Products containing hydroprene help to keep pest populations under control by preventing current and future infestations.

What kind of pests can be controlled with Hydroprene?
Hydroprene’s target pests include fleas, ticks, ants, roaches, bedbugs, and other stored product pests.

When is the best time to use Hydroprene?
The ideal time to treat your home with an IGR to prevent bothersome infestations is right now, before reproduction becomes a problem.

How long will Hydroprene products last after I apply them?
IGR products containing hydroprene, such as Gentrol IGR Concentrate, Gentrol Point Source and Gentrol Aerosol  are effective for about 30 days when used for indoor treatments.

Tips
1. Hydroprene does not kill adult insects but addresses only the problem of reproduction. It is always a good idea to use a knockdown-and-kill insecticide along with the IGR for ultimate population control.
2. Hydroprene products should not be used directly on pets. Whatever form you are using, always read the product label carefully for ideal application.
 

More Information About Hydroprene

Hydroprene As an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) Insecticide

Hydroprene is most often used as an active ingredient in pesticides known as IGRs (Insect Growth Regulators) targeting roaches, drain flies, fruit flies, bedbugs, and stored product pests.

What does an IGR do? 

An IGR disrupts and impedes the life cycle of insects in the egg and larvae stage of development. The idea with an IGR is that if an insect cannot reach adulthood, it cannot reproduce. In short, IGR is a form of "birth control" for pests which helps keep the populations of unwanted pests under control by preventing current and future infestations. Since IGRs address only the problem of reproduction but do not actually kill the adult insect, it is always a good idea to use a knockdown-and-kill insecticide along with the IGR for ultimate population control.
