Nibor-D® Insecticide Foam + IGR

The dual active ingredients in Nibor-D® Insecticide Foam + IGR include borate-based Nibor-D insecticide plus pyriproxyfen, an insect growth regulator (IGR), for the overall control of pests. It is ideal for the control of small flies and cockroaches in both residential and commercial accounts.

As a ready-to-use foam, Nibor-D + IGR can be applied quickly and easily to many of the problem areas where small flies and cockroaches live. It is designed for a fast, easy application that ensures deep and even penetration to any void, drain, crack and crevice and is also suitable for non-food surfaces. Each 21 oz. can has an up-down valve for 360º application, as well as two interchangeable actuators. The full cone spray actuator is used for regular spray applications in areas of commercial kitchens where grime builds-up including under equipment, around equipment table legs and into waste containers after they are emptied. The drain actuator also includes a 17” detachable semi-rigid hose for reaching past p-traps (if present) and for foaming deep into drains and pipes, as well as into other hard-to-reach areas where pests live and breed.



Part of a Green Pest Management Program

Nibor-D Insecticide Foam + IGR is a ready-to-use foam that provides an inexpensive, multipurpose and flexible means of delivering active ingredients to hard-to-reach areas. It is a fast and easy way to keep pest populations under control in commercial kitchens and restaurants. Instead of mixing products for use in a foaming machine, Nibor-D + IGR allows techs to quickly treat non-food surfaces, drains, cracks and crevices with minimal disruption to customer operations.

On residential accounts, the product can be used to treat all the drains in the house including floor drains, kitchen sinks, bathroom sink drains, bathtub and shower drains. It is also an ideal solution for treating wall voids near plumbing penetrations under sinks, as well as other cracks and crevices in commercial and residential facilities where pests harbor and breed. Note that this product is for indoor use only.

At a Glance

Nibor-D + IGR controls pests in multiple ways. Cockroaches and small flies are killed by contact. The insecticide taints organic matter, making it lethal to adult flies and developing larvae. Meanwhile, the insect growth regulator disrupts pest growth and reproductive systems.

Nibor-D + IGR is especially convenient for bar drains and other smaller voids in commercial kitchens and bars where a convenient aerosol is preferred for ease-of-use in tight areas. The 17" detachable hose is long enough to push foam deep into the draining system and can also be used to target fly sources in slop drains, trough drains and floor sink drains. The product may also be sprayed into areas beneath equipment and other hard-to-reach spots.

Nibor-D + IGR also reduces service time to treat drains and cracks and crevices that are usually treated with Nibor-D using foaming machines. Independent time study LINK a reduction in service time of 61%.

A Closer Look

Cockroaches and small flies often use drain systems to travel through buildings. The drains represent a perfect place for them to lay eggs and provide a haven for small flies and roaches to develop into adults with plenty of food, breeding material and a moist protective environment. Use Nibor-D + IGR foaming aerosol to fill these voids and kill pests by contact. The residual will help kill and prevent small flies while the IGR works to control the development of future generations in cockroaches and small flies.

Primary locations where small flies and cockroaches infest and proliferate:

  • Food production and food service facilities
  • Commercial kitchens and restaurants
  • Coffee shops
  • Juice Bars
  • Home kitchens and bathrooms
  • School cafeterias
  • Assisted living facilities and nursing homes
  • Hospitals
  • Vet offices and kennels
  • Floral shops
  • Mausoleums
  • Grocery stores
  • Apartment complexes
  • Low-income housing

The Science Behind Nibor-D+IGR

Nibor-D + IGR’s formulation is a combination of 5.000% Nibor-D (disodium octaborate tetrahydrate) and 0.018% insect growth regulator (pyriproxyfen). The formulation is designed to ensure that all life cycle stages are affected—including eggs, larvae, nymphs, pupae and adults—and that target pests are unable to survive or reproduce. Its unique dual-action formula provides a wide range of benefits including rapid control, reproductive and developmental inhibition, as well as commercial and residential infestation prevention. These results are achieved through multiple methods such as:

Direct Contact: As the foaming insecticide is applied, it delivers an effective dose of the DOT (disodium octaborate tetrahydrate) active ingredient to live insects, resulting in rapid kill.

Residual Deposits: Because Nibor-D is highly soluble, the formulation penetrates organic material, scum, filth and biofilm in order to make the breeding material uninhabitable. This process helps to eliminate adults and prevents larval development.

Reproductive and Developmental Control: Pyriproxyfen, a juvenile hormone mimic, goes to work immediately to reduce the chances of a second generation by disrupting the reproductive process which can result in inhibition of the molting process, reduced egg production and hatch rates and, ultimately, sterile adults.

Infestation Prevention: Applying this product in areas conducive to breeding small flies can help to prevent infestation from establishing. It also helps prevent the spread of infestations throughout commercial kitchens and restaurants, across different areas of a building or into other units in high rises, as well as in commercial facilities, kennels, food processing plants or other areas where small flies are a continuous problem.
