    Q
    Is there a difference between Bayer Maxforce and Bayer QuickBayt?
    Both are fly baits made by the same company, are sold in the same quantities, contain the same active ingredient (imidacloprid) and attractants (muscalure and Bayer LEJ 179). Just wondering if they're the same product rebranded or if there is an actual difference!
    A
    That is a good question for Bayer. They would be able to give you the differences between them since we do not sell the QuickBayt. Their phone number is 800-331-2867.
