Is it safe to put Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel in the pantry on the floor with food?

Our exterminator placed some of this on the floor in our pantry because we had German roaches. Is this safe being closed up in the pantry with the food? Just want to be certain. All types of pesticides make me nervous.


We will not comment on your pest control operators work, but we will tell you that as long as the  Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is used as directed on the product label, it is safe to use in the food pantry. Since this bait is in gel form it is not released into the air and does not move through the air. The Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel label recommends "Gel  placements should be at or near harborages or aggregation areas, such as corners, or cracks and crevices. Numerous smaller placements will provide faster control than fewer larger spots, especially for German cockroach control" Maxforce FC can also be used in bait plate stations.
