March Kicks Off Ants
“Insect Reproduction Month”! Ants, roaches, silverfish, earwigs, spiders and many more creepy crawlies are building their nests preparing to begin their warm season foraging. Pest treatments are adjusted during this period in order to get the best results. Insect Growth Regulators, or IGR’s, play a vital role in today’s pest control industry. IGR’s are formulated to stop the development of juvenile insects. Typically, insects develop and have multiple stages to their life cycle. Most commonly, IGR’s sterilize insect eggs or disrupt the insects molting process, ending their life prematurely before the reproduction cycle continues.
