Tekko Pro IGR is an insect growth regulator concentrate used to aide in the control of fleas, roaches, flies, mosquitoes, gnats, crickets, litter beetles, ants, and many other listed insects. It is used to inhibit reinfestation by reducing insect egg production and hindering the development of insect larvae into adults.
Tekko Pro IGR is manufactured by Control Solutions and is an insect growth regulator that disrupts the life cycle of targeted insect pests. When younger stages of insects come into contact, it will stop them from maturing. This provides effective long-term control of fleas, roaches, flies, mosquitoes, gnats, crickets, litter beetles, and ants. Tekko Pro can for up to 7 months after applications and is for use indoor and outdoor on furniture, carpets, kennels, poultry houses, and many other listed areas.
To use Tekko Pro, you will need a handpump sprayer, backpack sprayer or hose-end sprayer for smaller residential applications.
- Step 1: Determine how much Tekko Pro will be needed for your target pest and treatment area by calculating the square footage of the treatment area. To do this, you will need to measure (in feet) the area length and width, then multiply the two values (length x width = square footage). Depending on the pest you are treating, Tekko Pro can be mixed at a rate of 1 to 2 fl. oz. per gallon to cover up to 1,500 sq. ft. So for example, if you measured an area of 3,000 sq. ft. for treatment and wanted to control fleas, you would need 2 oz. of Tekko Pro to be mixed in 2 gallons of water.
- Step 2: In a sprayer of your choosing, fill that sprayer halfway with the required amount of water. Add the appropriate amount of Tekko Pro and then add the remaining half of water. Close the sprayer lid and agitate the sprayer until it is well mixed.
- Step 3: Spray the finished mixture on baseboards, window sills, doorframes, cracks and crevices. Outdoors, focus on spray-on shrubs and grass making sure to also get the underside of leaves.
