    Q
    After using Maxforce Roach Killer Bait Gel, what is the best way to clean up the remaining gel?
    I used the product in my kitchen. I didn't use it on counter tops or food prep surfaces, but I did use it in cabinets that hold dishes and along the molding, etc. The roaches seem to be gone, but most of the gel that I applied is still there. Is it enough to simply wipe it up with a damp rag?
    A
    The best way to clean up the roach gel is exactly as you stated. Use a wet rag with soap on it an it will come right up.

    The gel ranges in color, it is more of a brown/beige color. The bait gel should be easily removed with soap and hot water. If you are still having problems a little vegetable oil will remove the gel

    Q
    Is it safe to place Maxforce FC gel in the pantry ?
    I had pest control company coming monthly to treat german roaches. They were using bait gel, and after a year they said there is no need to continue coming (?). Only two months after I started seeing baby roaches ( did not know they can fly, so I did not realize that were baby roaches). I live in apartment, and I am not sure if other tenants do pest control, but I noticed those baby bugs crowl towards the ceiling and in apartment above no one resides for couple of months. I bought Maxforce FC bait gel and Gentrol to do the pest control myself, but I am not sure if I can apply the gel in my pantry, since I found a lot baby roaches in all kind of food, that I all threw away. Is it safe to place bait gel in the pantry and where is the best spot to place it ? And what else should I buy to keep myself protected ?
    A

    Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is labeled to be applied in pantries. Please visit our Roach Guide which includes helpful tips and videos showing you exactly how and where to place the bait. As the applicator you want to where chemical resistant gloves such as Nitrile Chemical reistant gloves

    Q
    Do Maxforce FC kill bedbugs too?
    A
    Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is labeled only for roaches and will not kill bedbugs. Treating for Bed Bugs will take a combination of products, not just one particular product. We recommend looking at our Bed Bug Kit Page. We have taken the guess work out of what products you will need to treat with and put them in kits depending on how many rooms you are treating. Each Kit comes with a 5 Step Treatment Guide on how to properly and thoroughly treat for bedbugs. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    Q
    Can you compare Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel to the moistness of Invict Gold Roach Bait Gel?
    How long it will stay effective after implemented? It can be the perfect product, but if it gets dry quickly it is a problem!
    A
    The Maxforce FC Roach Bait gel stays moist for quite a while but the exact amount of time will depend on environmental factors such as the humidity, air currents and the porousness of the surface it is placed on.  We have not done any moistness testing between Invict and Maxforce so we do not have any way to compare them.

    Q
    What is the difference between Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel vs Combat Roach Killing Gel? They both contain the same amount of the active ingredient, Fipronil 0.01%.
    A

    While the amount of active ingredient is the same 0.01% Fipronil, the bait matrix that Bayer uses in their Maxforce Roach Bait line has shown to be more highly attractive to roaches resulting in more feedings which results in more roaches killed.

    Q
    Does intense heat ruin the effectiveness of the Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gell?
    A

    Per the label the Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel  should not be applied on surfaces where the temperature exceeds 130 degrees Farenheit as the 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 in general.

    Q
    Is there something besides Maxforce Roach Bait I should use for roach treatment?
    I live in a mobile home park which make's it even harder to get rid of ,but just if i could maintain them would work thank you..
    A

    We would not recommend just using Maxforce Bait Gel when attempting to control roaches. If you have only applied twice, it may take more time to get rid of them. An insecticide, bait gel and a growth regulator should be used to control roaches. Please check out our Roach Control Kit Rotation A. The kit comes with all the products that you will need to successfully get rid of roaches.

    We do also have an awesome Roach Guide that gives all instructions on how to kill and prevent roaches.

    Q
    Will Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gels will it harm my dog?
    My blue tick hound ingested the contents of two bait stations. Overnight she pooped once and vomited twice while in the house - something she hasn't done in over 8 years! She is very sluggish today. Not saying it was the bait packages but seems very odd timing if it wasn't. I'm pretty sure she will be okay but thought readers would like the feedback.
    A

    Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is designed to be be used in areas pets should not be. Please keep in mind that normally the animal would need to consume large quantities for it to harm them. To be safe we would still recommend contacting the Vet.

  • Asked by Esther from St Louis, Missouri
    08/17/2014
    Q
    I placed the roach bait in my apartment for a month. There are still live roaches. Why?
    I place the bait gel inside the kitchen cabinet and corner of walls.
    A

    Roaches do not get there overnight so they will not leave overnight. It takes time for the bait to work through an active population. We highly recommend applying an insecticide and an insect growth regulator to the indoor and outdoor perimeter of the structure for a better treatment. I have also included a roach control article that offers great information. Please put out fresh bait once every two weeks. The food based ingredients attract them for consumption and they spread the product to one another.

    Q
    Is Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel food grade?
    A

    Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel contains food ingredients as the bait matrix, plus an insecticide active ingredient. We are not exactly sure what you mean when asking if it is food grade since it does contain food. You can use this product in food-handling areas such as kitchens, however, you should not contaminate human or animal food or feed since it also contains an active ingredient.

    Q
    I might have gotten a little bit of Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel on my tongue, will it harm me?
    A tiny bit of the gel dropped on my hand when I was under the kitchen cabinet. I didn't see it and went to wipe sweat off of my upper lip and got a tiny bit of the taste on my tongue. I went and washed my tongue, immediately with soap. Then, there was no taste. Would this harm me? Any symptoms I should watch for?
