Syngenta: Archer IGR for food-handling


August 12, 2016

ArcherArcher insect growth regulator (IGR) is now approved for use in food-handling establishments. Archer interrupts the development of juvenile stages of targeted insects such as ants, cockroaches, fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, litter beetles and flying insects to prevent them from becoming egg-laying adults. In addition to food and nonfood storage and preparation establishments, it also can be used indoors, around buildings, in moist breeding areas such as mulch or bedding and in standing waters found in gutters, drains and pools. Outdoors, Archer can be paired with Demand CS insecticide to control mosquitoes as part of the SecureChoice Mosquito Assurance Program, and fleas and ticks as part of the SecureChoice Flea and Tick Assurance Program. The Demand CS + Archer Multipak, which serves as the foundation for both programs, also can provide professionals with a significant reduction in mosquito, flea, tick and other pest populations.
