Gentrol Point Source

Gentrol Point Source is a special Roach control device that contains the Gentrol Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) hydroprene for 90-day control of roaches and other stored product pests. Activating Gentrol Point Source is as simple as squeezing the raised end of the plastic, adhesive-back device. This releases Gentrol IGR onto a filter paper. From there, it moves up to 75 square feet, damaging adult roaches and preventing them from reproducing. 20 units per box.  Gentrol Point Source should never be used to eliminate a roach population by itself.  Gentrol will not kill roaches...it only prevents them from reproducing.  You should use roach baits and roach sprays in conjunction with the Gentrol Point Source. 




How Gentrol Point Source Works

Gentrol Point Source Stations discreetly release microscopic particles of the active ingredient Hydroprene into the treatment area once activated. Target pests do not need to contact the device directly since the active ingredient moves into a localized area. Hydroprene is a biorational Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) – similar to insect growth hormones that occur naturally in roaches and stored product pests - that disrupts the life cycle of certain insects in the egg and larvae stages of development, essentially making it a type of birth control for insects. Gentrol Point Source Stations do not act as an adulticide, so they should be used as part of a broader Integrated Pest Management approach. The IGR helps to keep target insect populations under control, which is especially useful in areas where conventional sprays and foggers are not appropriate or where baits are less effective due to competing food sources. Gentrol Point Source helps to achieve more rapid results than using adulticides alone since surviving insects are not able to re-establish the population.

Gentrol Point Source Target Pests

Roaches, stored product pests

PESTS CONTROLLED WITH GENTROL POINT SOURCE: Roaches, Stored Product Pests (red, confused flour, and merchant beetles)

Target Uses of Gentrol Point Source

Use Gentrol Point Source in areas where roach or Stored Product Pest activity has been observed. Gentrol Point Source may be used in areas where conventional sprays or foggers are not appropriate, such as in sensitive areas like daycare centers or food handling establishments. While Gentrol Point Source may control target pest populations over time, they are most frequently used in conjunction with other control methods such as baits or residual sprays to expedite treatment. Gentrol Point Source is an especially helpful tool when treating advanced roach infestations and also can be purchased as part of our Roach Control Kits.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: S-Hydroprene 90.6%

Gentrol Point Source Application Instructions

Do not activate stations until ready to use. To activate Gentrol Point Source, press firmly between thumb and forefinger on the pouch located on the side of the device, until a snapping sound is heard indicating that the contents of the Gentrol capsule have been released. Place the device in any orientation (vertical or horizontal). Do not place in areas accessible to children. Place the Gentrol Point Source in areas where roach or SPP activity has been observed.

Gentrol Point Source Stations will treat up to 75 square feet, but more stations may be used for heavy infestations or when many treatment areas are enclosed, such as in cabinets. Keep Gentrol Point Source device a minimum distance of 3 feet from exposed food in food-handling establishments.

Always read the product label completely before use.

Each Gentrol Point Source Station treats up to 75 square feet for 90 days. Each box contains 20 stations.

Gentrol Point Source is for use in the following areas:

Buildings including restaurants, homes, hotels, kitchens, laboratories, apartment buildings, day care centers, machinery, equipment, greenhouses, hospitals, mausoleums, nursing homes, office buildings, schools, and warehouses; modes of transportation including but not limited to aircraft, buses, trucks, trailers, rail cars, and marine vessels; areas where food is handled or processed such as areas for receiving, storage, packing, edible waste storage, machinery and enclosed processing systems (mills, dairies, edible oils, syrups), serving areas

Indoors-

The discreet delivery system of Gentrol Point Source is ideal for sensitive accounts like these: Food Handling Establishments, Hospitals, Nursing Homes, Areas where spraying isn’t acceptable (e.g., Electrical Boxes and Computer E    quipment)

Specific areas of activity may include cabinets, closets, pantries, drawers, refuse areas, electrical boxes, equipment, false ceilings, and around doors, expansion joints, pipe chases, dressers, windows, heating and air conditioning ducts, refrigerators, and voids where pests are active. After activation, each station will remain active for up to 90 days. For easy maintenance, each station has a diagram where the month activated can be marked.

    I live in a apartment that when I first moved into had a German Roach Problem. When I went on a massive detail house cleaning, first I found that previous tenant, well.. were'nt the cleanest of people. After getting all cleaned I DID have professional come in to help start the getting rid of the problem. Once I saw them slowing up , I dicided to do MY OWN Pest Control. I found this site and ordered my own home defense. I ordered the Advion Roach Bait and the Gentrol Point Source. AMAZING!!.... It was like the bugs just disappeared completely. I would see one every once in a while but it would be just barely alive. I like that I am able to control where baits and gentrols are placed since I have a small pet and I can be secure in knowing he does not have access. I HIGHLY recommend these products to anyone, products work fantastic, they are easy to use, totally worth purchasing. I Have ZERO bugs since using this product.

    By Marie in myakka city, fl. on 05/25/2012

    I live in Florida where roaches can be a real problem. I was infested with German Cockroaches. After a deep cleaning (roach feces is nymph food) and placing Max force gel bait to kill the adults, I place Gentrol around my house where the roaches seemed to be vacationing. It's been 1 month now and I can say I think I have won the war of the roaches, I highly recommend this product.

    I have rescue birds and fish so I can not use harsh chemicals. Construction on a new addition on an old building shook some critters out. This is safe for my birds and you can see the difference when the wings crinkle up on the bugs and no new ones emerge.

    5 of 5 stars  Gentrol Point Source is Very effective!
    By Debbie in Houston, TX on 11/03/2010

    I have been battling pantry pests (Indian Meal Moths) for what feels like forever. Since they were in the pantry, we were hesitant to use pesticides in there. These are perfect - no pesticides - you just put them in a few places and that's it. A week or so after putting them out, I started seeing moths that were either flying funny, or seemed unable to fly at all. It has been 2 weeks now and I'm seeing far less moths and the ones I'm seeing have definitely been affected. The only drawback is that they don't die rapidly. But the only alternative is to use pesticide and we didn't want that around stored food for obvious reasons.

    This product controls reproduction so it's hard to rate this early in. I haven't seen any new hatchlings of dry produce Beatles or Mites and I have noticed bugs hatching on the outside of my property witch could be an indicator that it hasn't work or an indicator that the bugs can sense the product and are pushed outside of the effective perimeter.

    By Joan in New Bern NC on 02/25/2016

    We have been fighting Indian wheat moths for months. We have two tropical birds and the moths seem to come in with the seeds. We used the traps and they collect moths but the numbers kept growing. We put the Gentrol Point Source out in three rooms and in two days the moths were gone. The birds seem unaffected by the formula in the air, I gave three stars because we don't know how long they'll last. One order ought to last us a year though! Pet bird owners if you're struggling with this and can't spray or bomb, here's your solution.

QWhat if my cats walk on areas where Gentrol Point Source may have landed then groom themselves?
I am using Gentrol with bait stations for an Oriental roach issue we are having. One of the places they have been seen is an area where my cats have their litter box. If my cats walk on the formula the Gentrol point disk emits, and then lick their paws, is this harmful? I don't see this addressed in the enclosed information.

AThe tiny minute amounts of Gentrol the cats would pick up on their paws would not cause any issue whatsoever. According to the MSDS "Due to the unique nature of the product form, acute toxicity hazards are not anticipated". This means that unless the cats actually get a hold of the disc and eat the vial inside before it is crushed, there would be no concern that they would ingest enough product to cause any type of toxicity issues.

QI have seen deformed roaches carying egg cases months after I have treated some areas..
Since this is a growth inhibitor, how is it mature deformed roaches have the capacity to reproduce? What happens to the nymphs that hatch from these egg cases or is it that the eggs do not hatch? A roach is a roach, deformed or not. Please, I'm confused!

AGentrol Point Source Stations will cause the roaches to become deformed. It also will prompt the females to prematurely lay their eggs (the eggs will also be affected by the product). It sounds like the product is working and doing exactly what it should. If you need additional information on the product or roach control, please contact us at 866.581.7378.

QOur bathroom and kitchen share a wall so they are close. Should we use a Gentrol Point Source in both places?
Also, you are supposed to keep them at least 3ft away from food. Our kitchen is small so where can we place one? How long should we wait to come back in the house? Can we use one in the car for carpet beetles or will it be too concentrated? When you press it, does it immediately release into the air you breathe? I'm pregnant, so we really want to be safe.

AYou should place a Gentrol Point Source disc in each room. For the kitchen area, you can use the sticky tabs included in the package and place the disc on the side or behind the fridge or place it to the side of the cabinets or pantry. You only need to keep the disc away from food prep areas not from stored food product. According to the manufacturer, there is almost no hazard from inhalation. There is no need to leave the house when using the Gentrol Point Source discs. Gentrol Point Source is labeled to be used in modes of transportation, but we have not heard of any one using it in a car. To get rid of the beetles in your car you should be able to thoroughly vacuum and spot spray a pyrethrin product such as 565 Plus into cracks and crevices.

QDoes the Gentrol Point Source affect Carpet Beetle Adults or Larvae or both?
We are at the point in trying to get ahold of our infestation where adult beetles are emerging from prior larvae and soem adults have laid eggs and tiny larvae are emerging. Since these work for 90 days, I need to know WHEN to put them out. If they only work for the adult beetles, I may be too late.

AYes. According to the manufacturer Gentrol Point Source is effective for carpet beetle larvae.  The active ingredient is a juvenile growth hormone mimic and more or less stunts the proper growth of the larvae. Activating Gentrol Point Source is as simple as squeezing the raised end of the plastic disc. This releases Gentrol IGR onto a filter paper. From there, it moves up to 75 square feet, damaging pests and preventing them from reproducing.

QI have a PCO who wants to use Gentrol Point Source to treat bedbugs. I read on here that it says its for roaches. Is this product effective on bedbugs or are they just trying to get my money?

A

Gentrol Point Source is not labeled for treatment of bed bugs, it is only labeled to treat roaches and pantry pests.  However, we do sell the Gentrol IGR in the liquid form in all of our Bed Bug Kits and the liquid IGR is labeled for treatment of bed bugs.

QHow does the Gentrol Point Source disperse?
Is the hydroprene in the Gentrol Point Source disks dispersed via vapor pressure or do the bugs track it around the house? I like the safety and effectiveness of hydroprene, but I feel uneasy about having an IGR product aerosolized or constantly lingering as a vapor in my house.

A

Gentrol Point Source†after the capsule has been opened, it releases microscopic particles that actually fly through the air on particles that are normally flying around. It could be considered slow release. As these particles float through the air they land on the roach causing growth abnormalities to immature roaches.†

QCan I place Gentrol Point Sources near bait stations if I am using them by themselves?
If i use the gentrol by itself instead of using it with spray can i place it near bait stations

A

Gentrol Point Sources should be used where there is roach activity. There is not a problem placing these point sources near bait. The ideal places include cabinets, closets, pantries, drawers, refuse areas, electrical boxes, equipment, false ceilings, and around doors, expansion joints, pipe chases, dressers, windows, heating and air conditioning ducts, refrigerators, and voids where pests are active.

QWould Gentrol Point Source work inside a wall?
If I remove an unused electrical switch from the wall and place a Gentrol disc inside, and then cover the hole back up, will that work to control roaches living behind the drywall?

A

The Gentrol Point Source is designed to work in areas such as open rooms, closets, or cabinets, where the active ingredient vapor can move throughout the space. We would not recommend trying to use the Gentrol Point Source inside a wall void. You could apply an insecticide dust such as CimeXa Insecticide Dust into wall voids for long-lasting control of roaches in this area. Please see our Roach Treatment Guide for more information about treating for this pest.

QIs the coverage area of Gentrol Point Source stations the same as the radius?
The product information says it covers 75 square feet, that's the same as 75 ft radius, right? So, if you put it on the corner of the room you actually only get a quarter of the product working right?

A

The radius is measured from the center to the edge of a circle. When finding out the area in which to use a Gentrol Point Source station, you need to figure out an area of 75 square feet. You can do that by measuring out an area of 7.5 feet by 10 feet and that's the area one station will cover.

QWill Gentrol IGR kill my flowers?

A

Gentrol IGR is not labeled to be applied to flowers or plants, so it would not be recommended to do so. It is really only a crack and crevice treatment as directed on the product label. We are not aware of the effects it would have on plants, but you can contact the manufacturer directly for further information.  Zoecon can be reached at 800-877-6374. Gentrol also would not be photostable outdoors, although we do carry other IGRs that are labeled for use outdoors. We can assist you with choosing an appropriate product for your needs; you may call our Customer Service staff at 866-581-7378 M- F 9a-5p EST.
