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!
You need to apply a spot of gel every 12 inches directly into cracks and crevices in each room. Each tube of Maxforce FC roach bait gel contains enough gel to make about 60 spots applications. The amount of gel you will need will depend on the size of each room. After roaches eat the gel it should be replaced so monitor the gel placements and refresh when necessary. For larger infestations you may need 1 tube per room. You may also want to consider using our roach control kit #2 to help control the roach population faster.
The Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is our most popular roach control product for the last 5 years. It is proven to be a very good measure of control for roaches. As with any pest problem though you need to have the cooperation of the tenants as far as keeping the kitchen area clean, no dishes in the sink overnight, trash taken out when it should, counters and floor cleaned and swept, etc. This product is a food bait that will attract the roaches to eat it, but it will only work if there is not other human food for it to compete with. For best results or bad roach problems you should use our Roach Control Kit. It comes with a roach gel that also works very well along with two other products that when used together provides excellent results for eliminating roaches.
Maxforce FC Roach Bait gel should be safe to use around any pet as long as you keep the application out of reach of the pet. Since you are applying a gel and not a spray, there is nothing released into the air where sensitive animals such as birds could run into respiratory issues. That being said you should always defer to your veterinarians advice. We do not have any other written safety information other than the information available on the product label and the MSDS. We do not offer product guarantees but these are the same products used by professionals and if you use them as part of your roach control plan you will have the same results as a professional.
