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.
