Martins IGR

Martins IGR Insect Growth Regulator inhibits fleas from advancing from larvae to the adult stage, which allows for effective control of flea infestations. Controls fleas for up to seven months. Can be used on carpets, rugs, furniture, draperies, poultry houses, animal quarters, kennels, doghouses, and warehouses.



Product Documents


The active ingredient in I.G. Regulator is Nylar, an insect growth regulator. Nylar is similar to insect growth hormones that occurs naturally in insects and acts on the immature life stages of the flea, preventing the adult flea from developing. Flea eggs deposited on treated areas will not develop into adult fleas. Flea larvae crawling onto treated surfaces will also not develop into adult fleas.

The unique properties of Nylar eliminates the flea population, when used as directed. Nylar® causes a gradual reduction and ultimate elimination of the flea population by breaking the reproductive cycle. Nylar stops the flea life cycle and inhibits the development of the immature stages of the flea 7 months preventing them from reaching the biting adult stage. Existing adult fleas and flea pupae are not affected.

If a high population of adult fleas are present, the use of an adulticide such as Conquer may be necessary for immediate relief. I.G. Regulator compliments the rapid activity of the adulticide by providing long term control of preadult fleas before they grow up to be biting adults.

    5 of 5 stars  Great stuff
    By in Memphis, TN on 07/08/2013

    I was using Martin's to stp fleas and saw it is also good for cockroaches. I had a horrible infestation. I sprayed everything with Martin's, and it eradicated all the fleas and all the cockroaches. Best long-term treatment for both I've ever used. Took about a month to take effect, as I didn't use poison with it, but has lasted more than the 7 months. I love it. Just follow the directions, quite simple really.

    By Ray in Fort Pierce, FL on 09/26/2013

    This product mixed with Bifen I/G according to the labels. It really is effective for ants, roaches, fleas in Florida. It has lasted for about six months after I spray it around the outside perimeter of the house, garage and shed. I use about 1/4 cup/3 gallons of water.

    5 of 5 stars  I.G.R. (insect growth regulator)
    By David in walnut Cove, NC on 05/14/2016

    This product is fantasic. It basicly stops the eggs from reproducing for up to 7 months. We had a flea problem last year and no matter how many times I sprayed with the other spray, they would hatch new eggs. With in a week, we had a whole new crop of fleas. one time spray with IGR it killed everything. Customer service was very prompt and I had the product with in a few days.

QWhy must Martins IGR be mixed/used within 24 hrs? Does it not work if it sits for a few days?
I have to keep animals out of each room until it dries and sometimes that takes a bit of time. It is much easier if would last a couple days.

AThe acid in water can break down the actual chemical which is why you cannot leave the product sit in water for an extended period of time. We recommend that you mix 1/2 fl oz with a 1/2 gallon of water so you don't have to mix the entire gallon up at one time.

QCan I mix Martins IGR and Martins Viper when spraying indoors?
We have been told to mix Martins Viper insecticide with Martins IGR for treating fleas indoors. However in reading the directions, Martins IGR (growth inhibitor) can be sprayed indoors on carpets, furniture, pet sleeping areas and rugs, while Martins Viper adulticide is directed to be sprayed indoors on Cracks and crevices not on couches and beds .... so how can you mix these two chemicals when they are not supposed to be sprayed in the same areas?

A

You are correct. Martins IGR can be mixed with Viper. Specific label instructions still apply to each product. If you find that you are needing to treat areas that Viper cannot be applied, you will need to apply the products separately. You should not apply either of these products on bedding, mattresses, or the skin contact areas of couches or other furniture.

QDo I loose effectiveness of the Martins IGR in my grass, garden areas when I water or it rains?
Best plan for fleas and water

AYou generally want to apply the Martins IGR when it will not rain for at least 24 hours after application.  This insures that the product has enough time to dry and adhere to the surface it has been applied to.  You should consider purchasing our Outdoor/Indoor Flea Kit. This kit contains Onslaught which is a broad spectrum insecticide which can be used as a broadcast spray for both indoor and outdoor infestations. The kit also contains Martins IGR which will help break the breeding cycle of the fleas for long term control. You must vacuum indoors prior to the first treatment and then vacuum daily for 14 days to help eliminate some of the flea eggs and flea debris that the pupae feed on. Outdoors you should concentrate on moist, shady areas and areas where the animals spend time resting. After 14 days a retreatment may be needed to eliminate any left over fleas (the kit comes with enough product for repeat applications). Your dogs must be treated with a product that is labeled for flea control on animals.

QIs Martin's IGR labeled for use in California?

AMartins IGR is not for sale to California because the manufacturer did not register the product in that state. Paragon Surge IGR contains the same active ingredient at the same concentration and it is for sale to CA.

QHow long do i wait to vacuum after application of Martins IGR?
I ask this because many of the Pyriproxyfen (the prime ingredient) studies via Google scholar, while talking about the sterilization of male/females adults also refer to the feces being contaminated, as such when other fleas consume it they themselves are sterilized. So would it better to wait 2 - 7 days? or just vacuum every day?

AWe always recommend vacuuming every day during flea treatments. Not only does this suck up the dead adults and any feces left behind, but the heat and vibrations of the vacuum help stimulate the eggs to hatch and be exposed to the product you are using. The fleas are protected inside their eggs much like a chicken egg and until broken or hatched, nothing can affect whats inside. By forcing the fleas to hatch you help control the infestation faster as they are being pulled onto a surface that has a residual insecticide of your choice and the IGR waiting on them. Please let us know if you have any other questions.

QWhat's better for outside use Martins IGR or Archer IGR?
I was wondering what to use outside in my yard for fleas and which IGR does a better job outside and which one works longest out of these two 'Martins IGR' or 'Archer IGR'? Are they basically the same product with a different brand name or are they different chemically and work differently?

A

Either the Archer IGR or the Martin's IGR both contain the same active ingredient, Pyridine 1.3%. †They both are photostable up to 14 days outside and are essentially the same product just different manufacturers. †You would be able to do more applications with the Archer being in the larger bottle, but either would work the same for fleas outside.

QIf I vacuum again, will I have to spray the Martins IGR all over again?
Hello, I sprayed Martin's IGR throughout my whole house a little over 2 weeks ago and was wondering when I should vacuum again. I thoroughly vacuumed before application. I do not want to suck up the IGR and have my spraying lose its effectiveness. My vacuum cleaner is rather powerful. This is for a flea infestation. I did not use an adult insecticide, but my cats are on Advantage II. This was a whole lot of work and I would like to avoid doing this all over again if possible. Thanks for any advice. Sally Koshko

ATo answer you first question, you should vacuum daily. A vacuum cleaner will not break down Martins IGR no matter how powerful it is. Also, you should be using an adult insecticide. Using the Martins IGR alone, without an adulticide, will stop the reproductive cycle but does not kill the fleas. It is very important to mix the Martins IGR with an adulticide such as Onslaught for a complete and thorough Flea elimination plan.
