Annie, I can't locate "malequat". Is there an alternative spelling?

We use products containing insect growth regulators (IGRs) such as methoprene and pyriproxyfen to prevent flea larvae from developing into adult fleas.

it is a pesticide used to kill bed bugs and is frequently used in jails and prisons for outbreaks of lice, etc

Thank you. I still can't locate this pesticide. Can you give me the chemical name - the active ingredient - in what I believe is the trade name "Malequat"?
