Details

How Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations Work

Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations are all about fast control and secondary kill. Due to Fipronil and its accelerated Domino Effect kill, Maxforce Roach Bait Stations start to kill roaches in just eight hours. And field tests show 75% population reductions in just two days for roaches. The bait formula is that irresistible, and works that fast.

Fipronil is in the Phenylpyrazole family of insecticides and is used in many products when a delayed kill is desired, such as ant and roach baits. Fipronil disrupts the insect central nervous system, causing hyperexcitation of nerves and muscles.

It's also convenient and easy to use. The small roach station bags contain loose-packed single stations and are re-sealable to keep baits fresh and protected from contamination. Plus, the patented inspectable red station lids now have an additional feature: A debossed lid that's index welded to the base, creating even greater bait station integrity. And, the easy peel-and-stick adhesive makes application fast.

Accelerated Maxforce Domino Effect

Our new fast control formula still gives you superior long-term control of roaches compared to contact sprays. The new active ingredient, Fipronil, provides a unique mode of action that works through both ingestion and contact, knocking down roaches that eat or simply touch the bait. Either way, one contaminated roach or ant kills many others where they live and breed. The Domino Effect still achieves population control, but with faster visible results.

Target Pests

Small cockroaches such as German and Brown-Banded

PESTS CONTROLLED:

Small cockroaches such as German or Brown-Banded roaches; exposed, adult stages of beetles: cadelle, cigarette beetle, confused flour beetle, dermestid, drugstore beetle, flat grain beetle, granary weevil, lesser grain borer, lesser mealworm, merchant grain beetle, red flour beetle, rice weevil, rusty grain beetle, saw-toothed grain beetle, spider beetle, or warehouse beetle

Target Uses of Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations

Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations can be used in virtually any roach infestation of small roaches (do not use for large roaches such as Oriental roaches). Stations are ready-to-use and require no extra cleanup, so they require no maintenance except monitoring and replacing as needed. Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations have a unique child-resistant design, so they can be used even in sensitive situations. Bait stations also protect the bait from contamination like dust or other debris. The included adhesive also makes stations easy to apply discreetly, in any orientation, for use in public areas.

Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations are also labeled for exposed adults of a variety of stored product beetles and can be used in food/feed handling facilities.

Bait stations are the preferred formulation when harsh conditions exist in treatment sites that may compromise gel baits. Use stations where high moisture/humidity, temperature extremes or dust may reduce long term gel attractiveness. Examples of such sites include: dishwashing rooms; drop ceiling spaces; ovens and steam tables. Stations may also be a better long-term control choice in harborage sites that are difficult to service regularly, or may be sensitive to other formulations such as sprays and/or dusts. Examples of these sites include: inside appliances; vending machines, around electronics and in and around animal habitats.

ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Fipronil 0.05%

Application Instructions

  1. Place bait stations in areas where cockroaches have been seen and where they hide. Cockroaches infest dark, warm, damp locations.
  2. The bait stations can be stuck to a vertical surface by peeling off the protective strip to expose adhesive.
  3. For effective roach control use 4-6 bait stations per 100 sq. ft. of horizontal surface area. Place adjacent to walls and flush in corners. Do not place more than 24 bait stations per residence. For outdoor use, place stations adjacent to structure.
  4. Do not spray the bait stations. Avoid placing the bait stations on freshly sprayed surfaces.
  5. Roaches will begin eating the bait immediately and you should expect to see fewer roaches within 3 days.
  6. Inspect all bait stations and replace as needed for continual control of roaches.

For Pantry Pests:

Remove and dispose of infested foodstuffs. Clean up spilled foodstuffs from cupboard or food storage area. Once feeding on bait begins, most adult beetles will be killed within 7 days. Apply using the same rates outlined above.

Each bag contains 72 bait stations, treating at least 1,200 to 1,800 square feet of horizontal surface.

Standard Application Rates

  • Use 4-6 bait stations per 100 sq. ft. of horizontal surface area. Do not use more than 24 stations per residence.

For use in the following areas:

Anywhere cockroaches are a problem, such as residential, warehousing and commercial establishments, including food service, food manufacturing and food processing facilities, hospitals, schools, daycare centers, nursing homes, health care facilities, laboratories, computer and electronic equipment facilities, pet shops, zoos, basements, buses, boats, trains and aircraft

    OMG! Buy this right now!

    By Sonia on 01/14/2009

    Verified Purchase

    As embarrassing as it is having "had" them, I had to write this review! This stuff is amazing! If you're truly tired of seeing roaches or the horrible smell of them when you use the microwave, buy this! I bought Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations and Roach Control Kit#1 (which has the much needed birth control) and I saw a huge difference in 3 days and none, yes none, in a week! I still do 2 AM spot checks in the kitchen and no more roach parties! The stickies on back really work too! Also buy the birth control people! Sounds funny, but logically it works!

    QUICK DEATH TO ROACHES!

    By James on 09/24/2009

    The people who make this must have a magician working for them.  Received the package of Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations on a Tuesday and just for laughs set out about 5 bait stations in the kitchen. By the time Saturday got here wasn't seeing roaches during the day and within a week wasn't seeing roaches except for a few sickly ones stumbling across the floor. They have been down for two weeks at this point and I see about one roach every 3 days. The baits even have sticky on them so you can put them on the bottom of the shelf. After you first set them out check the baits after about a week because some of them were empty.

    Unreal!

    By Dan on 03/25/2010

    Verified Purchase

    After spending a bunch of money at other stores trying to at least control the roaches in our apartment, I finally gave this a shot. Within a few days, we weren't seeing them in the day at all and within a couple of weeks, we rarely see any at night. I am sold on this product, it did what the pest control company couldn't.

    This product is better than good!

    By Kimberly on 12/16/2005

    I actually brought this product from a person on the street. The results were remarkable. Within 4 days roaches were non existent in my apartment which had a minor roach problem. Each Maxforce FC Roach Bait Station was effective for nearly 7 (seven months). I have recommended this product to many people who complained of roach problems because of the satisfactory results. This product is effective even in a tenement where roaches are prevalent. I highly recommend Maxforce for your pest control product when fast and effective results are desired. 12/16/2005 This product is better than good, it is EXCELLENT!!

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
When does the Maxforce FC Roach bait stations need to be replaced?
A

The Maxforce FC Roach Stations can last up to 1 year if there is still bait left inside.  The stations have a translucent plastic top so you can see the bait tray inside.  In a bad roach infestation, roaches can eat the bait in as little time as 1 or 2 weeks.  You should replace the station once the bait is gone, or if you feel the station has become contaminated.  Otherwise, as long as there is still bait inside, it will be good for one year.

Q
How do I get rid of German cockroaches in a car ?

i did the cleaning part, and ive been using sticky traps but i still see them around. what products do you recommend

A
You could use a roach bait station in your car such as the Maxforce Roach Bait Stations or the Advion Roach Bait Arenas. The roaches would eat the bait and share it with the other roaches and this will help eliminate the infestation.

Q
Should Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations be placed inside kitchen drawers - where the silverware is??

I am renting a house and previous tenent has bait stations right inside kitchen drawers. I have two children (ages 7 & 9 years old) and am especially concerned about poisoning not only roaches but people! Where should bait stations be placed in kitchens? Are they safe to handle when removing from walls and drawers?

A
Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations can be placed in kitchen drawers. The bait will not be coming incontact with the kitchen utensils. Being able to apply bait in drawers, is great because you cannot apply a spray in those areas. The Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations will not harm you if you touch them.
