Archer IGR Halts The Spread of Insects From The Start

Stop Insects at the Source Rapid insect population growth can overcome even your most diligent control efforts. Archer insect growth regulator (IGR) from Syngenta provides broad-spectrum population control of a variety of insects, such as flies and cockroaches. Unique Science Disrupts Insect Growth Most insecticides affect an insect’s nervous system.


As an IGR, Archer provides a non-neurotoxic mode of action that interferes with the development process of eggs, larvae and nymphs of many common insect pests. By disrupting the reproductive cycle, Archer also improves the performance of other insecticides and reduces pest pressure.

Archer's Main Features

► Provides residual control by preventing insects from developing into egg-laying adults

► Unique mode of action helps prevent insect resistance to pyrethroid insecticides

► Photostable for up to 14 days under direct sunlight

► Can be applied indoors, outdoors and in food-handling establishments


Tank-mixing for Mosquito Control

Archer can be tank-mixed with an insecticide concentrate such as Demand CS insecticide to prevent immature mosquitoes from becoming egg-laying adults. A tank-mix of Archer and Demand CS should be applied outdoors to surrounding vegetation, including but not limited to trees, bushes and shrubbery, as well as around other common mosquito resting sites including under decks, near drainage spouts and in other shady, moist areas.


Night Non-Repellency for Efficient Cockroach Control

Archer can affect the behavior of egg-carrying cockroaches. As a non-repellent IGR, Archer causes cockroaches to abort their egg cases and return to feeding. This helps increase cockroach control when using cockroach bait products.
