Q&A Home

Netta from Orlando, Florida writes,

What is the difference between Maxforce FC baits & Maxforce baits other than the effective main ingredient?

Which is better for severe roach infestations?


Maxforce FC Magnum has the fastest knockdown and is usually selected as part of a roach control program when there is a severe infestation. Maxforce FC and Maxforce Select are pretty much the same exact product, just in different sized tubes. Maxforce Pro contains an active ingredient that works a bit more slowly than the other Maxforce baits but this does allow it to spread more thoroughly through the roach population. We recommend using the Maxforce Magnum in conjunction with a strong insecticide like the Demon WP and also an Insect Growth Regulator such as Gentrol IGR. This combination of products will help you get a fast wipe out of the infestation. Keep all spray applications down low around baseboards, under appliances and around window and door frames. Keep all baits up high by placing 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. Do not spray the same exact area where you bait.
