Gentrol Point Sources

Gentrol Point Source is a special device that contains the Gentrol Insect Growth Regulator (IGR) hydroprene for 90-day control of roaches and other stored product pests. Gentrol Point Source covers 75 square feet.All the benefits of an insect growth regulator in a discreet, non-spray formulation.

Features

  • Reduces Roach and Stored Product Pest Populations in a way conventional Insecticides can not.
  • Labeled For Use In Food Handling Establishments

*No need to vacate areas during treatment. *Low toxicity.

  • Active Ingredient:
    Hydroprene 90.60%
  • A cockroach/stored product pest(red, confused flour, and merchant beetles) device that prevents roach reproduction by releasing the Gentrol insect growth regulator (IGR) into a treatment area.
  • Plastic disks, that when squeezing the raised end of the device-penetrates 75 sq. ft. ,breaking the growth cycle-lasts 3 months. That way, pre-adult stored product pests never need to come in contact with the device. See Figure A.
  • Place the Gentrol Point Source device in areas where roach or stored product pest activity has been observed.
  • 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.
  • One to two weeks after application, you will begin to see roaches with crinkled wings, showing the initial effects of Gentrol. Gentrol point sources prevents stored product pests from becoming adults thus breaking the life cycle.
  • Activating Gentrol Point Source is as simple as squeezing the raised end of the plastic, adhesive-back device. This releases Gentrol IGR onto a filter paper.Once in place gentrol will move into a 75 foot area and last 90 days.
  • Since the molecules are heaver than air they are carried by currents into roach or stored product pests' hiding places.
  • Simply place these small stations in areas where roaches/stored product pest have infested.
  • Because immature roaches are prevented from developing into reproductive adults, this product effectively breaks the roach life cycle. By inhibiting reproduction, Gentrol Point Source, by itself, will control cockroach populations over time.
  • Once Gentrol Point source is released, the active ingredient moves from the Gentrol Point Source device into a localized area. Roaches and stored product pest do not have to come in contact with the Gentrol Point Source device to be affected.

More Instructions For faster results, Gentrol Point Source may be used in conjunction with EPA approved products that kill roaches and stored product pests(red, confused flour, and merchant beetles). Roach populations are difficult to control because roaches reproduce so rapidly. However, when a conventional insecticide designed to kill roaches does not provide 100% elimination,
Gentrol Point Source will prevent survivors from re-establishing the population.

Ordered this product before for my rental units. Works great, tenants report roaches under control and occasional lingering roaches even look weird (DNA alteration of Gentrol). Good product.

It's saving me from the roaches in my bldg
The bldg. I live in is infested with German roaches--the meanest, most prolific bugs I know. They're so tough and reproduce in such numbers I was losing my battle. But the Gentrol Point Source works like an armed barrier to the roaches when I put it at their entry point in my condo. It really saved my life because it keeps them from overwhelming me. Thanks for a great product!

I have been using this product for years and it does not stop amazing me. I only need to use Gentrol to keep roaches away. Lasts for months and gives me piece of mind.

Great
I can only assume it is working as I haven't seen any adults with the crumpled wings nor have I seen any babies. I think the Advion gel I used wreaked so much havoc and the Gentrol is holding it's own.

Can't tell
I used a cocktail of products toward the end and some some results. Initially, I used this alone for grain beetles that I was finding in my bathroom (collecting more so in the tub as if it was coming from the drain). When I used it alone, I saw that there were more beetles and larvae collecting near the product. I did not see a reduction for about 2 weeks. However, the reduction appeared after I did the following :

1-Put liquid growth inhibitor down the drain
2-Put tape over the tub drain and ceased use (now 2 weeks into it)
3-Leave this trap in the dry tub

I am now seeing a reduction in these pest but am not sure on whether the trap is sufficient enough on its own to fight the force.

Gentrol
Great stuff - now use it routinely and thank you to all of the folks who provided reviews. The comments are very helpful. I love the DIY pest control website - now going after crickets and termites. Great website that educates people on pests and solutions to getting rid of pests. I don't like bugs but this website rocks. I'll let you know how we do with the crickets and termites.

It works
I had German roaches--the meanest, most fertile roaches on the planet. I tried every product available retail. None of them could keep up with these guys or prevent them from bringing all their friends. The Gentrol point source really did the job.

Edit:
I wrote a review for the wrong method. The point source actually finished off the hatching babies by rendering the mothers infertile. I especially like the fact that they last for 3 months.

Gentrol wipes the german roaches out completely!
I tried every thing that was available in the stores: none of it was working and the german roaches were taking over. Over a 3 week period your Gentrol Point Source decimated the ever increasing hoards. I was stunned and delighted, not to mention so relieved!.

Excellent product
I have been using Gentrol Point Source for several years. This is an excellent product. It does what it says it does. Helps to eradicate roaches, just change the disk every three months or so. Will continue to order as needed. Definitely recommend.

great product
I brought these Gentrol devices to help cure a roach problem in my home. To my surprise they really work. Within days we seen funny looking roaches that look like they were dried out and ready to die. We started to see less of the roaches when we used this with the gel to kill the roaches. It helped to get rid of the problem fast. I resupply them around the house every 90 days to eliminate more coming into the home. Great product.
