Product Overview

One insect growth regulator, zero insect survivors

Insect growth regulator for population control of mosquitoes, cockroaches, fleas, flies, ticks and other pests.

Archer insect growth regulator controls populations of mosquitoes, cockroaches, fleas, flies, ticks and other pests to prevent them from becoming egg-laying adults both indoors and out.

Key Features

  • Emulsifiable concentrate formulation and unique mode of action for long-lasting population control.  Mode of action 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.
  • UV protection in formulation provides long lasting flea control in outdoor settings for up to 16 weeks
  • When applied outdoors, Archer can be tank mixed with adulticides such as Demand® CS with iCAP™ technology
  • Low volatility allows Archer to be applied indoors, outdoors and in food-handling establishments (see product label) without odor or airborne residue

Key Benefits

  • 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, mosquitos and other nuisance pests
  • Unique action against arthropods and compatibility with other insecticides makes Archer ideal as part of an Integrated Pest Management strategy
