Tekko Pro Insect Growth Regulator makes controlling the insectpopulation on your property simple. It uses its two activeingredients: pyriproxyfen and novaluron, to stop the juvenile pestsfrom growing into adults. By disrupting the life cycle of theinsects by keeping the juveniles from growing into adults, thisgives a long term solution to pest control problems. For use inmany areas, from furniture and carpets to kernels and poultryhouses. Tekko Pro Insect Growth Regulator is a great example ofusing pesticides to deal with pests over a longer period of timethan other products that kill the pests outright, but can't controlthe population from rebounding. The active ingredients are the keybehind behind the success, for two completely different reasons.Pripoxyfen is a juvenile hormone analog, which makes thepre-adult stage of the insect longer so that it dies before it canreproduce. And novaluron is a Chitin Sythesis Inhibitor, stops theinsect from being able to molt, making it more likely to die fromoutside influences. These two chemicals work together to stopinsect control problems in their tracks. Tekko Pro InsectGrowth Regulator works for up to 7 months after application.

These properties willgradually result in the reduction and eventual elimination ofthe flea population. Flea eggs and flea larvae that comeinto contact with Tekko Pro will also not developinto adult fleas.

  • If a high population of adult fleas is present, it may benecessary to use an adulticide. Tekko Pro may be combined withan EPA registered flea adulticide.
  • Application of Tekko Pro prior to the fleaseason will aid in reducing developing populations. Applyto areas where pets and other animals are known to frequentand where previous infestations have been known to occur toprevent the emergence of adult fleas and alsocontrol stages of fleas that don’t resemble adult fleas.
  • Before treatment, vacuum carpets, draperiesand upholstered furniture. Dispose of vacuum bag in anoutdoor trash receptacle.

OTHER USES FOR CONTROL OF LITTER BEETLES (Suchas Darkling, Hide and Carrion Beetles):
Tekko Pro can be applied to litter, such as in poultry housesinfested with litter beetles, to break the lifecycle of theseinsect pests. Make uniform application of Tekko Pro to litterat the rate of 1 oz. of product in a sufficient amount ofwater (minimum of 1 gallon) to cover 1,000 ft using alow pressure sprayer or similar applicator toachieve thorough coverage. Remove the old litter andanimals from immediate treatment area. Make surfacetreatment immediately after animals are removed andagain just prior to new animal placement, making sure totreat areas where beetles frequently occur, such as walls,supports, cages, stalls and around feeders. Application of EPAregistered adulticides, to kill adult egg-laying beetles, towalls and floors at cleanout and before reintroduction ofanimals, will suppress beetles that escaped earliertreatment and will help delay onset of futureinfestations. Cover or remove exposed food, feed, waterand watering equipment. Apply Tekko Pro uniformly tofloor area and to walls, posts, and cage framing (birds grownin cages only). Application should also be madeinto cracks and crevices around insulation. Reapply aftereach grow-out or sanitization procedure. Make perimetertreatments around the outside of building foundations toprevent immigrating adult beetles. Apply Tekko Pro or EPAregistered adulticide insecticides, or both, in a uniformband at least 1 foot up and 1-4 feet out fromfoundation. To maintain population control, it is advisableto maintain a year-round treatment program.
