Zoëcon Professional Products Expands Offering of Combination Solutions with Launch of Gentrol® Complete EC3

Schaumburg, Ill., DECEMBER 13, 2021— Central Life Sciences, whose founders pioneered insect growth regulator (IGR) technology more than 50 years ago, has announced the addition of Gentrol® Complete EC3 to the Zoëcon Professional Products line. This liquid formulation delivers broad spectrum activity and is formulated to deliver three rates of insect infestation control.

“Gentrol Complete EC3 provides effective relief and long-term control in one formulation – no tank mixing required,” said Tony Schultz, Business Manager of the Zoëcon Professional Products division of Central Life Sciences. “Technicians have come to rely on our Gentrol line of insect growth regulators, and this new combination product delivers the control they can expect in a multi-rate use label to meet infestation challenges ranging from maintenance to severe. It’s just that simple.”

Designed for food-handling establishments, Gentrol® Complete EC3 provides knockdown and lasting control over German cockroaches and other listed pests. Gentrol® Complete EC3 combines an adulticide with Gentrol® IGR to deliver broad-spectrum knockdown that simultaneously breaks the life cycles of German cockroaches, stored product pests, plus fruit flies, drain flies and more.

The active ingredient in Gentrol® Complete EC3, (S)-hydroprene, breaks the life cycle of listed insects and prevents rebound infestations. The insect growth regulator (IGR) translocates deep into wall cavities, cracks and crevices to reach insects in hard-to-treat locations. The Gentrol® Complete EC3 breakdown of active Ingredients is 1.5% (S)-hydroprene and 1.5% Lambda-cyhalothrin.

This new product is approved for use in food and non-food areas of restaurants, food manufacturing, processing, and servicing establishments. It can also be used as a spot or crack and crevice treatment, and as a general surface spray.
