Product Overview

One insect growth regulator, zero insect survivors.

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 outdoors.

  • Improves the performance of other insecticides by disrupting the reproductive cycle, thus reducing pest pressure
