Gentrol Point Source IGR

Free Shipping on All Orders

Gentrol Point Source IGR disks are an easy to use insect growth regulator for long term control of many pests. In a convenient ready to use disk just crack the module and place in the desired area. Each disk will treat 75 square feet for up to 7 months.

Target Pests

Gentrol Point Source is intended for use on bed bugs fleas german roaches drain flies pantry pests and other listed insects.

For Use In

Gentrol is for use in homes restaurants hotels hospitals offices schools and many other areas.


Gentrol Point Source is a very easy to use product. Just activate the Gentrol by simply squeezing the capsule on the adhesive-backed disk. This will release the IGR onto the paper filter and begin to prevent roaches from reproducing.

After activating the Gentrol Point Source it can be attached using the adhesive-backing in and around closets, cabinets, drawers, pantries, refuse areas, equipment, electrical boxes, false ceilings, doors, dressers, windows, heating and a/c ducts, refrigerators, and also in voids where the pests may be harboring.

The active ingredient hydroprene will creep along surfaces around the disk getting into every nook and cranny so the pest insects cannot hide. These are excellent to place and forget for long term control of many insects.

Coverage Area

Each disk of Gentrol will treat 75 square feet so an entire box will treat 1500 square feet. Generally 2-3 in a kitchen or 1-2 in a bathroom is plenty if spaced properly.

Time to Kill

An IGR does not kill the insect. It acts like birth control for bugs by interrupting the development cycle of the insect. Insects that are born from a treated adult will have deformed reproductive organs and not be able to reproduce. It is best to combine Gentrol Point Source with a adulticide for immediate control.

Mix Rate

This product is ready to use without mixing.

Kill off Future Generations of Roaches with Gentrol Point Source

A roach control device, Gentrol Point Source features the insect growth regulator (IGR) active ingredient (S)-hydroprene which can deliver up to 90 days of control. This discreet, non-spray format utilizes a translocating active ingredient to reach hard-to-treat areas. Zoëcon’s Gentrol Point Source is approved for food-handling and kitchen areas.

Gentrol Point Source comes in disk form rather than in a spray can which allows for easy "set and forget" treatment of high active areas. These plastic disks activate when squeezed and can control within 75 sq. ft. Simply p
lace the Gentrol Point Source device in areas where roach or stored product pest activity has been observed.

Our Solutions experts regard Gentrol as a vital part of a cockroach control program and include it in our Solutions guaranteed cockroach control kits.

How to Use Gentrol Point Source

2. The device can be placed vertically or horizontally. Make sure not to place in areas accessible to children or pets. 


Tips on Using Gentrol Point Source

  • Pay 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.
  • Within weeks of application, you may start to see deformed roaches with crinkled wings. This is a result of the effects of Gentrol. Gentrol point sources prevents stored product pests from becoming adults thus breaking the life cycle.
