Tekko Pro IGR, manufactured by Control Solutions, is a innovative insect growth regulator that disrupts the life cycle of targeted insects with 2 active ingredients, preventing the juvenile pest from growing into adults.

By disrupting the life cycle of the pest with Pyriproxyfen 1.30% and Novaluron 1.30%, it will cause younger pests to become sterilized and prevent the formation of a new exoskeleton ceasing their growth, thus preventing the population from rebounding. Pyriproxyfen is a juvenile hormone analog, which makes the pre-adult stage of the insect longer so that it dies before it is able to reproduce. Novaluron is a chitin synthesis inhibitor, which stops the insect from being able to molt making the nymphs more likely to perish from other influences.

Tekko Pro IGR provides effective, long-term control of pests like cockroaches for up to 6 months and fleas for up to 7 months. With its extended residual control and ability to be photostable for up to 14 days, helps to save professionals and home owners time and money.

Tools Needed

To use Tekko Pro IGR, you will need a handpump sprayer, backpack sprayer or hose-end sprayer for smaller residential applications.

For immeidiate relief of labeled adult insects, this product will need to be mixed an adulticide insecticide.

How to Use

Sprayer with Tekko Pro

  • Step 1: Determine how much Tekko Pro IGR will be needed 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 of water 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 Tekko Pro IGR mixture on labeled areas where pests frequent or where previous infestations have been known to occur. Spray as much insects as possible with direct contact or thoroughly spray all areas where these pests may hide paying attention to places such as beneath sinks, behind and beneath stoves and refrigerators, cracks and crevices, around garbage cans, cabinets, along the outside of baseboards, door and window sills, door and window frames and floors, around and on drains, pipes, plumbing, behind bookcases, storage and other utility installation areas, infested furniture and the inside of cabinets and closets. Indoor application is limited to space, general surface, spot, and/or crack and crevice treatments. Outdoors, focus on spray-on shrubs and grass making sure to also get the underside of leaves. Repeat applications of this product in 90 days or every 7 months for fleas as necessary.

When to Use

Special Considerations

No sure whether this stuff actually works. I used it according to the instructions (and video) to treat backyard area. The mosquitos are still actively there even after a few days. May try again, but it is quite expensive.

Good stuff
I live on a lake and have issues with midges, spiders, roaches along with typical ants and other common bugs. This product is much more effective the the Ortho products I have been using. This is much more concentrated and make sure you follow the proper mixing and safety instructions.

Love this stuff!
I mix once a month with one of my weekly applications of Talstar, this combo is amazing for our yard! Also use Bifen granules to broadcast the yard for a trifecta treatment.

I use a hose end sprayer, with the first application being a month and a half ago, to treat for skeeters, no see ums, gnats, whatever bug that what’s to ruin a good time. We haven’t had mosquitos in a few weeks, everything else is dwindling down significantly.

We’re in south Florida, it’s hot and muggy in the evenings and it’s just not pleasant to be outside and summer has only just started. I want to enjoy our yard regales of the time of year and this combo has made it possible, quickly. We have been spending every evening outside with no issues.

  1. Q:For drain gnats...how do you use indoors, kitchen, bathrooms etc.
    6/4/24
    A:If you are referring to drain flies, then Tekko Pro IGR will not control this pest on its own. For treating drain flies, the most effective option is to treat the drain with Forid. https://www.solutionsstores.com/forid-drain-gel-cleaner

  5. Q:I read the Tekko Pro label from front to back but still confused....can this be fogged into a crawl space and/or attic? Label says it can be fogged into large areas or voids. I own a ULV fogger and thought I could get much better coverage with fogging but wasn't sure if it was only approved for crack and crevice spraying in crawl spaces and attics . Thank you.
    7/25/23
    A:Yes, Tekko Pro IGR Insect Growth Regulator can be fogged into attics and crawl spaces. Make sure to close area to be treated and shut off all ventilation Systems. Apply the product in the air and direct fog or mist toward all areas that may harbor target pests. After treatment, leave the room closed for 30 minutes or longer. Wait for the product to dry before re-entering and allow the space to be thoroughly ventilated before reentry.

  6. Q:Per the Tekko Pro Label, the cockroaches listed to control are only German, Asian, and Brown Banded. Does that mean this product will not work on American roaches aka Palmetto bugs aka Water bugs?
    7/23/23
    A:Tekko Pro IGR Insect Growth Regulator labels those cockroaches specifically for indoor control, but keeps it open for general cockroach species such as American cockroaches for perimeter control. Success may be limited for American cockroaches, so we recommend following along with our tips and products listed in our DIY guide. https://www.solutionsstores.com/american-cockroach-control

    5/26/23
    A:Tekko Pro IGR Insect Growth Regulator is not labeled to control bees so you should be fine. For tips on how to apply insecticides without harming pollinators like bees, check out our DIY guide. https://www.solutionsstores.com/how-to-protect-pollinators

    5/24/23
    A:Tekko Pro IGR Insect Growth Regulator can be used in livestock housing such as stalls.

  10. Q:Can i mix tekko pro and supreme it for german cockroaches control…or is more of a quick kill?
    11/20/22
    A:Supreme IT Insecticide and Tekko Pro IGR Insect Growth Regulator can be mixed together to kill adult german cockroaches as a quick kill and stop juvenile german cockroaches from reaching sexual maturity thus effectively controlling future populations. However, keep in mind that Tekko Pro IGR Insect Growth Regulator will only stunt the cockroaches growth and not eliminate in it on its own, which is why its recommended to mix it with an adulticide insecticide like Supreme IT. Keep in mind that Tekko Pro IGR Insect Growth Regulator should be applied every 6 months while Supreme IT should be applied every 90 days.
