Many IGRs are labeled «reduced risk» by the Environmental Protection Agency, meaning that they target juvenile harmful insect populations while causing less detrimental effects to beneficial insects. Many beekeepers have reported IGR’s negatively affecting brood and young bees . IGRs are also more compatible with pest management systems that use biological igrs. In addition, while insects can become resistant to insecticides, they are less likely to become resistant to IGRs.
