Roach Elimination Article

Gentrol Point Source (a.i. Hydroprene 90.60%) - The active ingredient in this special roach control product is Gentrol insect growth regulator (IGR) - a biorational insecticide similar to insect growth hormones that occur naturally in roaches. Gentrol is unique in that it controls roach populations by inhibiting reproduction. One to two weeks after application, you will begin to see roaches with crinkled wings, showing the initial effects of Gentrol. These roaches cannot reproduce. Because immature roaches are prevented from developing into reproductive adults, this product effectively breaks the roach life cycle. By inhibiting reproduction, Gentrol Point Source, by itself, will control cockroach populations  (including German Cockroaches) over time. For faster results, Gentrol Point Source may be used in conjunction with EPA approved products that kill roaches. Roach populations are difficult to control because roaches reproduce so rapidly. However, when a conventional insecticide designed to kill roaches does not provide 100% elimination, Gentrol Point Source will prevent survivors from re-establishing the population.

Once Gentrol is released, the active ingredient (Hydroprene) moves from the Gentrol Point Source device into a localized area. Roaches do not have to come into contact with the Gentrol Point Source to be affected!

Gentrol Point Source can be used in buildings and modes of transportation. Permitted sites of application include restaurants, homes, hotels, kitchens, laboratories, apartment buildings, day care centers, machinery, equipment, greenhouses, hospitals, mausoleums, nursing homes, office buildings, schools and warehouses. Gentrol Point Source is also intended to be used in various modes of transportation including but not limited to aircraft, buses, trucks, trailers, rail cars and marine vessels.

Place the Gentrol Point Source device in areas where roach activity has been observed. One device may be placed to treat up to a 75 square foot area, paying particular attention to locations of roach activity. More devices may be needed in areas with a heavy roach infestation. Gentrol Point Source may be used in areas where food is handled or prepared. Do not place the devices in direct contact with food preparation surfaces or within two feet of exposed food.
