    Q
    Where are the best areas to apply Maxforce FC Magnum for roaches? Do I need to treat both on the inside and outside of my unit?
    I either have cockroaches coming FROM my unit (via drains), or INTO my unit from outside...where should I bait? I'm worried that I might make the situation worse by unnecessarily attracting all of the roaches on the property into my unit. My complex property manager assumes the roaches are coming from the surrounding vacant units, but he is far from an expert and couldn't care less.
    A

    Baiting and sanitiation are key when treating for roaches. Maxforce FC Magnum is a clean out bait and can be applied indoors and outdoors. We would recommended using the Roach Control Kit A to treat your home inside and out. The kit contains all 3 products that are necessary to eradicate a roach infestation. You can also protect your unit by applying and insecticide dust in the wall voids that will last for up to 10 years.

    Q
    I bought Maxforce FC Magnum but it didn't work. What can I use instead?
    A

    Using Maxforce FC Magnum (or any other roach bait gel) on its own is unlikely to eradicate a roach infestation, especially if it is severe.  We would recommend implementing a complete roach treatment program, which includes using an insecticide spray and an insect growth regulator (IGR) along with a roach bait gel, as well as non-chemical methods like proper sanitation and removing potential food and water sources.  We normally suggest that you use one of our roach control kits to treat a roach infestation, so that you will have all of the necessary products.

    Q
    I spoke to a pest control operator (that came to my work) about my roach problem. He recommended Maxforce .05.
    I see you have Maxforce, but I'm not seeing the percentage in strength that he recommended. Can you help me, please?
    A
    Maxforce makes many different roach gels that are all different percentages of strength.  The one you are looking for is called Maxforce FC Magnum, and contains .05% fipronil.

    Q
    Which bait for roaches neutralizes(either kills or paralyzes) them the quickest?
    I live in a attached row house with a roach infested neighbor, I'm trying to bait them inside my wall in order to neutralize them before they get to my house. I want to put some type of bait inside my wall that they will ingest and kill them quickly. Which chemical works the fastest, Imidacloprid, Indoxacarb, Fipronil, Hydramethylnon, or something else?
    A
    Maxforce Magnum is considered our fastest acting roach bait gel. Maxforce FC Magnum is the newest and fastest-acting roach bait ever by Maxforce. With Maxforce Magnum you get five times the fipronil, plus a new technology called ContactX(TM) which kills roaches by contact as well as ingestion. Please also review the video on the Maxforce Magnum product page for application instructions.

    Q
    Do roach baits like Maxforce Magnum kill household ants?
    A

    If ants were to ingest the Roach bait like Maxforce FC Magnum it culd harm them. The idea of ants being attracted to Roach bait is highly unlikely. Each bait contains seperate food attractants for the different pest. We would recommend for ants to use a bait like Maxforce FC Ant bait gel.

    Q
    Will Maxforce FC Magnum work for ants?
    I've been seeing ants in the kitchen. Will this bait work just as well for ants as it does for roaches?
    A

    Maxforce FC Magnum is formulated for roaches only, so you should not apply it for ant control. Because of the amount of active ingredient, even if ants ate the bait, they would die too quickly to carry the active ingredient throughout the colony. There is an ant bait gel by the same manufacturer, Maxforce FC Ant Bait Gel. Please see our Ant Treatment Article for more information about ant control.

    Q
    We need help choosing DIY pro exterminating products for infestation... Brooklyn, NY
    We have been looking for DIY pro exterminating products. We exterminated 2 years ago due to a nasty neighbor who had an infestation. Spent a grip and recommended to neighbor to get exterminated. Now infestation seems to be back due to new neighbor moving in, in December. We noticed all kinds: oblong shaped, rounded, light brown, dark brown, tiny to smaller size. 2 days in a row we noticed large black (2 sightings) it driving my wife nuts. She is constantly wiping and cleaning. Highest occurrence in the kitchen which is lined up next to neighbor on left by floor plan. We are stuck on what brand to buy. Max force or Vendetta. Our house is attached on both sides by neighbor houses. It's winter and snow everywhere so exterior spraying not suitable right now. Last time exterminator used a light brown gel which worked great. Please Help!
    A

    To treat a roach infestation you want to use Maxforce Fc Magnum.  We also recommend using Gentrol Point Source to break down the reproductive cycle. Please see our roach control page. To put up a barrier around your home you want to also use a crack and crevice spray like Phantom.

    Q
    Does Maxforce FC Magnum kill the roach eggs/sack as well?
    A
    Maxforce FC Magnum needs to be injested by the pest so it will not kill eggs or the sacks. We would recommend using something like Gentrol Point Sources that will stop the roaches from reproducing.

    Q
    Terminix came out 2 days ago and I'm still not happy after the 4th visit, so can I use the your product?
    I just can't take it anymore and I really need more help on getting rid of them because Terminix was a waste of time and money.
    A
    There is no reason why you cannot use the Maxforce FC Magnum roach bait gel in addition to the treatments that the pest control company did. We recommend that you read our roach control article so you can better understand what needs to be done to control a roach infestation in your home. How to Get rid of Roaches.

    Q
    Will Maxforce FC Magnum become contaminated if I fog using ul100 at the same time as I apply the bait?
    A
    If you are going to fog and bait, be sure to fog first. Wait a day or so and then bait. Please review our article on bait placement.  If you fog over the bait, it will cause the bait to be less effective. We would also recommend using one of our Roach Control kits

    Q
    Can I use Maxforce FC Magnum after I've just applied Permethrin dust?
    A

    You would not apply the Maxforce FC Magnum in the same area as a dust as this would contaminate the bait and make is less attractive for the roaches.  Dusts are only for use around baseboards and in cracks and crevices, behind switch plates, electrical boxes etc.  Baits are placed higher up.  

    Gel cockroach bait and bait stations should be placed in the following areas for the best results:

    • Behind kitchen cabinets and counter tops
    • Behind wall hangings such as pictures, clocks, or posters
    • Behind, next to, and under the stove.
    • In the corners up under the sink and other cabinets.
    • In stored paper bags and boxes.
    • Around pipes, cords, and cables that come out of the wall.
    • Behind and under bathroom fixtures.
    • Behind the medicine cabinet and vanity.
    • In any cracks or crevices around shelves or wood
    • In corners and under railings and on drawers.

    Q
    I have a 700 sq ft house with a severe roach problem. How many tubes of Maxforce FC Magnum do I need?
    A

    It is unlikely that just using Maxforce FC Magnum or any other bait gel on its own will eradicate a severe roach infestation.  We would recommend that you use one of our roach control kits, which include an insecticide spray and an insect growth regulator (IGR) in addition to a bait gel.  Please take a moment to look over our Roach Control Guide for more information on how to implement a successful treatment program.

  • Asked by Morgan from Poplar Bluff, Missouri

    Q
    What would be the appropriate way to clean up the Maxforce FM Magnum if spilled?
    While applying the bait near the baseboards in my kitchen I accidentally dropped some in a high traffic area where my toddler runs frequently. I just wanted to make sure I took the correct precautions.
    A

    We advise using soap and water to remove any excess Maxforce FC Magnum gel bait in the area. Old bait can sometime be removed easily with a paper towel and/or a paint scraper or similar tool. Be sure that you do not use any strong cleaning agents in areas where you plan to apply bait since the lingering odors or residues from these products can make bait less attractive to the roaches.
