Tekko Pro Insect Growth Regulator TEKKO-PRO Adama

Description

Tekko Pro Insect Growth Regulator (IGR)

Active Ingredients: Pyriproxyfen @ 12g/L & Novaluron @ 12g/L

Tekko Pro is a dual active insect growth regulator (IGR) that provides long-lasting pest control of Cockroaches and Fleas.

Tekko Pro Insect Growth Regulator contains 2 insect growth regulators with different modes of action.

  • Novaluron is classified as an insect growth regulator (IGR), specifically a chitin synthesis inhibitor designed to interrupt normal moulting of insects through the inhibition of chitin synthesis during the larval and pupal moults.
  • Pyriproxyfen is also classified as an IGR, specifically, a juvenile hormone analogue designed to mimic natural concentrations of juvenile hormones in insects, effectively preventing them from moulting to advanced life stages.

This gradually reduces the population of insects over several weeks due to eliminating their ability to reproduce.  Where a quick action is required and where high numbers of adult cockroaches are found, the use of a knockdown product as a tank mix with Tekko Pro is recommended.

Where can Tekko Pro Insect Growth Regulator be used;

  • Domestic, commercial, industrial and public buildings: – including food processing establishments
  • Shops
  • Factories

  • Offices

Where to apply Tekko Pro

  • For fleas – all areas where fleas breed such as carpet, rugs and especially pet bedding. The gaps between wooden floorboards may also harbour flea larvae and should be treated. Areas, where pets rest outdoors, should also be sprayed.

  • Apply to the point of run-off.

How to use Tekko Pro:

  • Prior to application, calibrate the sprayer to ensure correct spray rates are achieved.
  • Internal spraying: use a flat fan nozzle, producing a fine spray pattern.
  • External spraying: use a medium/coarse flat-fan nozzle for regular flat surfaces or a variable-cone/cone-jet for general situations (refer to label)
  • Apply 4 L of spray solution per 100 m2 as a coarse spray using handheld or knapsack sprayers.
  • Tekko Pro is formulated as an emulsifiable concentrate containing 12 g/L pyriproxyfen and 12 g/L novaluron.
  • Apply at either 8 or 15 mL of Tekko Pro per litre.
