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.

    5 of 5 stars  Control of outside bugs in Florida
    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.

    By William in Long Beach on 11/17/2017

    Good product. I am using some faith this product since I applied it but I did not fully test it... but my past experience tells me I am in good hands. I have 100% success rate so far and Do Your Own can take a lot of credit for it. Yes, in Santa Barbara this includes Bed Bugs. They still have an infestation there but not at my friends' places.

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?


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.

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.

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.

QHow long can Martins IGR stay in the mixed bottle before it goes bad?
The bottle says don't let sit overnight. Just wondering how long in hours after the mixture goes bad once its been mixed with water. Also how often should I reapply the product? Reapplying example: Daily, Weekly, Monthly mixed w/ water Example: 8hrs, 12hrs, 24hrs. I'm also using Martin's Permethrin mixed with the the IGR in the same bottle. Will this still help with controlling the flea life cycle when used together? Thanks so much!


Martins IGR†should only be mixed as needed and not sit in a sprayer longer than 24 hours.† You really do not want products to sit in sprayers long as this can cause damage to the sprayer and products start to breakdown once mixed with water.† For maintenance outside, Martins should be applied once a month, inside it has a residual of 7 months.† Martin's Permethrin†should also be used within 24 hours, applied once a month outside and once every 90 days inside for maintenance of general pests.† For fleas you are typically applying every 2 weeks for active infestation for at least†a few treatments.† You can apply the products at the same time from the same sprayer.

QI have six cats and a dog and it would be very difficult to take them all out of the house. Can I apply Martins IGR if I keep them all in a separate room?


You can apply Martins IGR by treating room by room.† Just make sure not to let the animals back into the treated room(s) until everything is completely dry.† Please be advised that Martins IGR is only an insect growth regulator.† It will stop insects from being able to reproduce, but it will not kill anything.† You will need to use it along with an insecticide concentrate in order to completely eradicate the pest you are targeting.†

QWill using Martins IGR along with Boric Acid be effective enough to kill all stages of fleas?
I know that you have to use an Adulticide along with the IGR in order to get rid of all forms of the fleas, but I don't want to use a harsh poison adulticide as I have hamsters that run around inside of balls at times.


We do recommend using an adulticide with the Martins IGR, however, it can be used alone. It will take longer to get rid of the fleas since this product is just an insect growth regulator. We would recommend using Diatomaceous Earth instead of Boric Acid since that is mainly for roaches and other crawling insects. Also, we would recommend vacuuming daily in between treatments. You may want to consider using a gentle contact kill for adult fleas such as Wondercide Flea and Tick Pets and Home, which does not have restrictions on pets or people in the area at the time of use.

Please check out our Flea Guide for tips on how to treat and prevent fleas in the future.

QHow long does it take for Martins IGR to dry?
We had been in an extreme drought. Then we had weeks of rain. I waited several days after the rain to apply Martins IGR in the yard. We have had 2 days of bright sun but the soil is still moist due to all the rain we had. I have dogs that need access to the yard. The label says it is safe when dry.


As long as the Martins IGR has had time to dry on the surface (this usually takes 1-2 hours), it would be fine for your animals to be out on it. The soil underneath just the surface it not an issue when using this product.†

QAfter applying Martins IGR, how long should I wait to mop wood floors?


Mopping would remove any residual of the Martins IGR, so waiting as long as possible would be recommended. If treating something other than fleas, applying Martins IGR as a crack and crevice application along baseboards, windows, under cabinets, behind appliances, etc to get the full benefit of the residual. You may reapply ever 60 days for preventative treatments, or as needed for active infestations.

If you are treating for Fleas, you do not need to apply Martins IGR to wood floors as fleas do not bed or harbor there. Concentrate your applications to carpeted areas, rugs, upholstered furniture and pet bedding.

Yes,†Martins IGR is safe if applied according to the instructions on the product label.† People and pets should be kept out of the area while the product is being applied, but it is fine for them to return when the product has dried.† It is best to make sure that it does not get wet within 24 hours after application.†
