APPLICATION DIRECTIONS

For roach gel: Application rate is dependent on level of infestation and species to be controlled (see application rate table). Apply bait as a spot or as a bead in cracks and crevices. The lower application rate should be used for low to moderate infestations or re-treatments, and the higher rate for more severe infestations or where the population occurs in inaccessible areas. Gel placements should be at or near harborages or aggregation areas such as corners or cracks and crevices. Numerous smaller placements will provide faster control than fewer larger spots, especially for German cockroach control. Place bait under baseboards, sinks, countertops, seats, around water pipes, water heaters, dishwasher equipment, in crack and crevices as well as voids where insects harbor. For outdoor use (adjacent to home -or- structure): Place bait in areas adjacent to structures where roaches may nest or breed. Apply bait to potential points of insect entry, such as eaves, sills, and expansion joints.

Apply bait in protected areas whenever possible. Environmental stresses such as direct sunlight and water will reduce the residual effectiveness. Priority treatment areas may be identified by visual inspection of such areas listed above or aided by trapping techniques or spot flushing.

Refillable stations: This may be used in the Maxforce Refillable Bait Station or B&G Perimeter Patrol Station. Refillable stations should be placed every 20 to 30 feet around the perimeter of a structure. Use approximately 2 stations per side of a typical single family home. The quantity of Maxforce FC Professional Insect Control Roach Killer Bait Gel bait added to the bait station will vary depending on the severity of infestations, see the application rate table. Do not exceed 2 - 4 spots per station (3” - 6” bead).

For best results, place stations near air conditioning units, water faucets, foundation vents and weep holes, decks, utility entryways (e.g. electrical, cable TV), and wherever cockroaches are frequently found.

Regularly inspect all stations and replace bait as needed for continual control.

Position Refillable Bait Stations adjacent to structure in areas where they will not be damaged by lawn equipment such as mowers and trimmers. When placing the station in turf, remove sod layer and place station base plate against the soil.

Applicator should not exceed one teaspoon of gel in refillable bait stations.

INDOOR USE:

Applications in Food/Feed Handling Establishments: Application within food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments is limited to crack and crevice treatment only. If gel contacts an exposed surface where food is handled, remove gel, and wash exposed surface with an effective cleaning compound followed by a potable water rinse prior to use.

Apply with Maxforce Bait Injector directly into cracks and crevices. Place applicator tip 1/2 inch into cracks, crevices, holes, and other small openings where roaches may be a problem. Apply small amounts of gel per spot. Do not apply bait to areas where food/feed, utensils or processing surfaces may become contaminated. Do not apply bait to areas that are routinely washed, such as cracks and crevices in tops of tables food/feed preparation and prepared food holding surfaces, as bait may be removed by washing. Do not apply bait to surfaces where the temperature exceeds 130°F as bait may run; examples include, but are not limited to, portions of stoves, ovens, grills, fume hoods, heat lamps, coffee urns, steam tables, toasters, fryers, dishwashers, and hot water pipes. Care should be taken to avoid depositing gel onto exposed surfaces. If gel contacts an exposed surface, remove gel and wash exposed surface. Food/feed areas include areas for receiving, storage, packing (canning, bottling, wrapping, boxing), preparing edible waste storage, and enclosed processing systems (mills, dairies, edible oils, syrups). Serving areas are also considered a food/feed area when food is exposed and facility is in operation. Apply bait in small amounts between different elements of construction, between equipment and floors, openings leading into voids and hollow spaces in floors, walls, ceilings, equipment legs and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, closets, stoves, and other equipment where cockroaches hide. During follow-up visits, inspect bait placements and reapply when necessary.

Application of this in food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments, other than as a crack and crevice treatment, is not permitted.

Break-tip Reservoir: Prior to use, break the snip-tip closed end of the gel reservoir at the scored line. After use, the reservoir may be resealed with the enclosed black outlet cap. The black outlet cap is reusable.

Directions for changing reservoirs: With the arrow on the drive rod pointing up, pull the drive rod out as far as it will go. Remove the empty reservoir. Do not reuse empty reservoirs; place in trash. Reservoirs that still contain gel can be sealed with the end cap and outlet cap for future use. To attach a new reservoir follow the above directions.

Do not treat food preparation surfaces. Do not apply bait gel to areas which have been recently sprayed with insecticide, and do not spray insecticide over gel as it may cause the bait to become repellent. Gel placements should be at or near harborages or aggregation areas such as corners or cracks and crevices. Numerous smaller placements will provide faster control than fewer larger spots, especially for German cockroach control.

For outdoor use (adjacent to home-or-structure):

Place in cracks or crevices adjacent to structures where large roaches† may rest or breed. Apply bait to potential points of insect entry, such as eaves, sills, and expansion joints. Apply bait in protected areas whenever possible. Environmental stresses, such as direct sunlight and water will reduce the residual effectiveness.

† American, Oriental, Brown, Smokey Brown

Do not exceed up to 1 tsp. per station.

If the station is not equipped with a sticker to identify the contents, apply a sticker to the inside of the station.

    Definitely the stuff to buy!

    By Anna on 09/14/2008

    What can I say except that if you have a roach problem this is definitely the stuff to buy. I used to dread going into my kitchen at night. As soon as I turned on the light there were roaches all over and nothing I used worked. And I used it all-- sprays, powders, bait, traps -- everything I heard of. Then I stumbled on this site and ordered Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel and Maxforce FC Roach Stations and put them both down. Well let me tell you, that was one year ago and I still have not seen any roaches and I definitely swear by this product and will swear by this product to all my friends. Use it if you have a roach because when you do you will see what I am talking about. Never use anything else... a VERY Satisfied customer.

    No fumes, worked great

    By Tammy on 05/19/2008

    Trust me when I say this product works. I was afraid to go into my kitchen at night because the counter tops would be swarming with roaches. I used Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel after it was recommended to me by an exterminator and in a short time I had no more roaches. I used it once around six months ago it has been working since. I recently saw two roaches so I'll give my kitchen another application. Don't buy Raid or any of those other smelly products that don't work. This one does not smell and works 5 times better. I have two small children at home and was relieved that there were no fumes to worry about.

    So Thankful!

    By Ashley on 07/02/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I purchased Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel, Advion Roach Bait Gel, CB Borid Boric Acid Dust, Demon WP Insecticide, Gentrol IGR Concentrate, and Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations (72 count) for my roach problem because I had out of town guest come to visit who brought them in from their suitcases. I was mortified at how quickly they multiplied and I was overwhelmed with the costs to get rid of them so I decided to purchase things myself. I had a really large order with DoMyOwnPestControl and before I completed the order they emailed me letting me know that I had purchased way more than I needed. That really spoke measures to me because most people would only care about making money. They told me what to get and how to use it and it hasn't even been a month and they are almost completely gone...If I see one he is dying. I will continue to use them for any pest control needs and I have referred my friends and family. Thanks!

    Could not believe the results!

    By Nedda on 07/25/2008

    This is the best product me and my family have ever used. It stops them the moment you put the gel down.  When I was living in an apartment complex the people that lived above me never use to empty their trash when needed. So it caused roaches in my unit- little ones and medium size. Well to make a long story short, this man was out one day, I believe he was testing the product Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel and he put some in my kitchen and he left the remaining of it with me.  I forgot that I even had more and the next day there was not one single bug or roach.  I could not believe it . So I called everyone I knew. I recommend all of the Maxforce products.

    Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel gets the job done. I've lived in a roach infested apartment for over a year. One application of this product eliminated our roach problem. I don't write reviews, but this product is too good not to express my appreciation.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
Will gel roach baits attract other roaches if i live in an apartment building?

We just moved to a new apartment and seen two German roaches. We had a professional come and spray and also sprayed an IGR, however, were not sure if the roaches were here or are coming from another apartment building. If we get the Maxforce FC gel, will this attract them if they are coming from another apartment and make the problem worse? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I have a 6 month old who will start crawling soon, and I am worried he can get sick from the roaches.

A
No, Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel will not attract more roaches to it from other apartments. If they are there, they will eat the bait gel and die. We would not recommend putting the bait gel in places where the professional sprayed because it will contaminate the baits, and the roaches will not eat it. It is recommended that you put the bait gel in the cabinets and drawers and basically places where you cannot spray. The gel will dry out and get a dry skin on top but roaches will still eat it up to a year.

Q
Will Maxforce FC Roach Gel hurt my cat or dog?
A

Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is only strong enough to kill small roaches.  There is no evidence of secondary poisoning with Maxforce or any roach products for that matter.  Remember that a roach would eat such a small amount of gel, and the gel only contains .01% of active ingredient. There is no way that it would cause your cat to be sick.  Although the thought of eating roaches makes even us feel a little sick!

Q
How safe is roach gel in my kitchen with food and children?
A
Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is very safe to use in a kitchen when it is used as directed on the product label. According to the product label, you should place small dots of bait every 10-12 inches directly in cracks and crevices on and under counter tops, in cabinets, cupboards, drawers and food pantries, around dishwashers, refrigerators, sinks, pipes and baseboards. Do not place bait on food prep surfaces or in places that you will frequently touch or in places that are frequently washed.

Q
Is Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel taken back to the nest for other roaches to die?
A
When roaches come out from hiding looking for food, they will pick up the Maxforce FC Roach Bait gel and take it back to where the other roaches are. The bait is then transfered and produces a domino killing effect.
