How Maxforce FC Magnum Works
Maxforce FC Magnum roach bait gel is the newest bait from Maxforce by Bayer. It has the same great active ingredient as the other Maxforce products - Fipronil. Only this time, you get five times the active ingredient, plus a new technology called ContactX that kills roaches even when they just touch the bait. Other roaches touch or eat the dead roach and spread the bait again, controlling the entire colony, even the roaches you can't see. For serious roach control, supplement your roach control program with Magnum.
The active ingredient 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. Maxforce FC Magnum still has a delayed kill to allow bait to be passed to other roaches, but it moves more quickly than baits with less active ingredient for faster clean-out. Results will be evident as quickly as overnight (complete control will vary with level of infestation, overall sanitation, and other control methods used).
Most common roaches
PESTS CONTROLLED: Cockroaches including American Roaches, Smoky Brown Roaches, Oriental Roaches, German Roaches, Brown Banded Roaches; Pantry pests including adult stages of beetles: cadelle, cigarette beetle, confused flour beetle, dermestid, drugstore beetle, flat grain beetle, granary weevil, lesser grain borer, lesser mealworm, 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 Magnum
Use Maxforce FC Magnum as a crack and crevice or spot treatment for almost any roach infestation. Because Magnum has more active ingredient than other baits, it is ideal for heavy infestations, larger roaches, or more sensitive areas where other control methods such as sprays may be difficult. Maxforce FC Magnum stays effective up to a year after application, so it is also appropriate for quarterly or other maintenance programs in high-risk areas, such as apartments. Maxforce FC Magnum can also be used to control adult stages of many stored product beetles.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Fipronil 0.05%
Use Maxforce FC Magnum as a spot or crack and crevice treatment for indoor and outdoor control of listed roaches and stored product pests. Application rate varies according to the level of infestation and species to be controlled. Apply gel as round spots or thin beads into cracks and crevices or as a spot treatment. Place bait close to cockroach harborages, foraging and feeding areas such as corners and cracks and crevices. Numerous smaller bait placements provide faster control than fewer larger placements. In cases of severe infestation and areas with excessive clutter or alternative food sources that cannot be eliminated, use the higher rate of application.
Pest population reduction will be apparent within 1 day for German roaches and 3-4 days for American roaches.
Prior to using, gel may need to be shaken well if any separation has occurred. Unscrew the black cap (or break off the tip) and replace with included open tip. After use, replace the black cap before storage.
Always read the product label completely before use.
Each 33 g tube yields approximately 33 bait placements and treats 11 to 44 square yards, depending on infestation.
Standard Application Rates
*0.75 g per square yard – maintenance programs for continuous control (will not provide fast control of existing infestations)
*Up to 1.5 g per square yard – light to moderate infestations, retreatments
*Up to 3.0 g per square yard – clean out of severe or heavy infestations
*1-2 g per square yard – large cockroaches such as American, Smoky-Brown, or Oriental
**0.1 g equals approx. ¼ in. diameter spot; 1.0 g equals approx. dime-sized spot.
For use in the following areas:
Indoor and outdoor (adjacent to homes and structures) control in residential areas and the non-food/non-feed areas of institutional, warehousing and commercial establishments, including warehouses, restaurants, food processing plants, supermarkets, hospitals, nursing homes, motels, hotels, apartment buildings, bakeries, beverage plants, breweries, bottling facilities, candy plants, canneries, cereal processing and manufacturing plants, dairies and dairy product processing plants, frozen food plants, schools, laboratories, computer facilities, sewers, ”aircraft,“ buses, boats/ships, trains, homes, houses, industrial buildings, office buildings, kennels, kitchens, manufacturing facilities, spice plants, stores, wineries and similar structures, mausoleums, meat processing and packaging plants, meat and vegetable canneries, pet shops and zoos; food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments
Place bait under baseboards, sinks, countertops, seats, around water pipes, water heaters, dishwasher equipment, in crack and crevices as well as voids where insects harbor. Inspect bait placements and reapply as needed.
Stored Product Pests: After removing infested foodstuffs and cleaning up spilled foodstuffs and dust, applications of this product will kill adult stages of beetles remaining in area. Apply in voids, cracks and crevices, behind and under cupboards, and other difficult to reach areas where insects may hide. Application rate is dependent on level of infestation.
Food/Feed Handling Establishments: Apply only as a crack and crevice treatment in food/feed handling areas. Do not apply to areas that are routinely washed, exposed surfaces, or in ways that will contaminate food/feed, utensils or processing surfaces. Apply bait in small amounts between different elements of construction, between equipment and floors, openings leading into voids and hollow spaces in floors, walls, ceilings, equipment legs and bases, around plumbing pipes, doors and windows, behind and under refrigerators, cabinets, sinks, closets, stoves and other equipment where cockroaches hide. Inspect bait placements and reapply when necessary.
Place bait in areas adjacent to structures where large roaches may nest or breed. Apply bait to potential points of insect entry, such as eaves, sills, and expansion joints. Apply bait in protected areas whenever possible. Environmental stresses such as direct sunlight and water will reduce the residual effectiveness. Priority treatment areas may be identified by visual inspection of such areas listed above or aided by trapping techniques or spot flushing. Bait may also be applied in reusable bait stations to protect from weathering and contaminants.
Maxforce FC Magnum Features
*Five times more active ingredient than other Maxforce baits.
*10% more bait in each tube.
*ContactX technology kills roaches not just by ingestion, but also by contact.
*Attractive to roaches up to a year if not contaminated.
*No vapor, fumes, or odor.
*See visible results overnight.
*Low toxicity to people and pets, ready-to-use and easy to apply.
Extra Tips for Using Maxforce FC Magnum
*Store out of extreme temperatures. Use within 2 years of purchase.
*Do not use sprays, heavy detergents or cleaners near baits as this can make baits less attractive.
*Sanitation should always be the top priority when treating for roaches! For more information on how to get rid of Roaches, see our Roach Control page.
*Apply bait away from air currents to prevent drying. Avoid placement on paper, cardboard, or other porous surfaces such as unsealed concrete.
*Good programs rotate baits to avoid resistance. Change baits every few months or alternate with different bait (and different active ingredients) for best results.
*May stain textiles, fabrics, or porous surfaces.
*Do not apply bait to areas where the temperature exceeds 130 degrees F as bait may run.

Only product that has worked for me
By Derick on 07/28/2008
After trying several extermination methods to treat a major infestation, Maxforce FC Magnum is the only product that has worked. I would come out to the kitchen at night and find hundreds of German cockroaches having a party. After 3 days, the only roaches I've seen are belly up, twitching on the floor. If anything, the only problem with this product is that it kills them too fast.

Big results for a big problem.
By Sonia on 01/14/2009
This stuff really works! I bought Maxforce FC Magnum along with Roach Control Kit # 1 (which has the much needed birth control and gel bait) and the Maxforce 72 pack bait stations. The best $$ I've ever spent! I saw fewer roaches in 3 days, and none, yes none, in a week! I still do surprise spot checks at 2 AM in the kitchen & no more roach parties! The tubes are smaller than I expected but they pack a powerful punch. Whatever you do, buy the birth control so they can't reproduce! Thanks to rep. "Philip"!

Maxforce FC Magnum is excellent. It has worked each time I have used it. My only drawback is that I can't find it locally to buy it. I strongly recommend this. Buy it and you won't regret it. Good luck.

By Travis in Effingham, Illinois on 04/06/2009
I had always considered myself a very clean person, but I live in a multi-unit apartment complex. A few weeks ago my kids started seeing little black bugs hanging around our 30 gallon fish aquarium. To my surprise they were baby German cockroaches. I flipped out! I started doing research on the Internet and came across this website. Maxforce FC Magnum seemed to be the one for me. Great price, easy to use, and excellent customer service. I used the product as directed, and at night you could see them eating it up. Three days later NO roaches at all. No roaches ANYWHERE!! Amazing product. Highly recommend.

This stuff is great!!!
By Adrianne in Lauderhill, FL on 07/19/2010
Please understand that roaches can travel through clothes,bags,purses,or even cars.I had recently let two friends move with me. Their car was infested with roaches and the home that they were living in before moving with me. Well wouldn't you know that after a month of them staying with me. I began to see roaches. And I keep my home very clean. It started to really get on my nerves. I was furious to the point where they had to leave. But to make a long story short. I put this Maxforce down with in 8 days I didn't see one roach. This stuff in great. I would suggest if you have a house purchase about 4 tubes. If you have a apartment 2 tubes. This stuff is the best. I will purchase this again. Thank you so much

By Paul in Omaha, NE on 03/23/2011
This new gel works great!! I have only used one tube and it has been about a month and I have not seen any roaches. I still have two tubes left, I'm going to use them when the weather starts to get warmer just in case. So if you are tired of your roach problem you should give this product a try. You will not be disappointed take my word for it

This Stuff Really Works !!!!
By Janie in Huntington , WV on 09/24/2010
I moved from my mom's house and she had roaches, and unfortunately I brought some with me . I went and searched online to find a better product then what I was using which was Combat source kill max (which was not getting rid of them) and found this site Do My Own Pest Control. After reading some reviews on the product I decided to order and give it a try. After I put the bait out, by the next day I could tell a huge difference. Now after having the bait down for almost 2 weeks I still only see one or two here and there. Before putting Maxforce FC Magnum out, I would flip on my kitchen lights and they would scatter everywhere, at least 10 or more, and they seemed to love my refrigerator. Now I don't see any in my kitchen at all. It's only one or two here and there, so I believe this product really works. I bought 3 tubes and I didn't even use half of one tube. I gave one to my mom and she likes this product so much that she is wanting to order more just in case. Thanks so Much DoMyOwnPestControl!!! I was embarrassed for anyone to come in my home in fear they would see a roach running around, and now I don't have that fear anymore. I will definitely be buying again, if ever needed. Let's hope not! =)

Maxforce FC Magnum
By Harold in Philadelphia, Pa. on 09/20/2010
Used this product along with a few of some other products sold by this company to assure proper roach management. However, it was this Magnum bait that help reduce the number of roaches significantly within a weeks time. Two weeks later there were almost no roaches at all. I've used other Maxforce products and they do work, but this is a great quick kill. I would recommend it to anyone.

By J in TX on 05/27/2010
I have a low rent apartment in Texas. This place was really crawling! They have once a month pest control but it never made a difference and the roaches were driving me crazy! I sprayed all kinds of stuff too. I applied Maxforce FC Magnum generously and at the 5 day mark - NO MORE ROACHES !

Maxforce FC Magnum
By Donald in winston salem nc on 05/26/2010
My father owns several rental properties and has a lot of renters that get roaches and other bugs. It gets expensive calling in the pest control companies. I told him about DoMyOwnPestControl and the Magnum they sell. He tried it and was so impressed that he gave me a bonus and a pat on the back which I hardly ever get. My sister usually gets all of the praise. Way to go DoMyOwnPestControl...Thanks!!!

QWe have a large roach infestation in an empty house. What should we use?
I have German Roaches in my rental property. We have thrown out the refrigerator and stove. There is nothing left in the house. We have bombed with 3 different types and still have them rain down on us when we open the front door. They are collecting in the upper corners of rooms and on any door that remains shut they get on the top. I have bought new appliances but cannot put them in until the roaches are gone. Please help. We are in Orlando, Fl.
AMost bug bombs do not leave a residual behind so it will only kill the roaches that are out in the open when the bomb is set off. Before starting a roach treatment program you must thoroughly sanitize the house. Even the best insecticides on the market cannot overcome poor sanitation. You must use products that will leave an active residual behind and products that will eliminate roaches where they hide. You will need to use 3 products together to eliminate roaches. You will need to use an insecticide such as Cy-Kick CS mixed with an insect growth regulator such as Gentrol IGR around door frames, window frames, baseboards, under and behind appliances and counters and any other cracks or crevice where roaches harbor. The other product you will need is a roach bait gel such as Maxforce FC Magnum. Place the bait gel in areas where insecticide sprays would not be appropriate, such as in cracks and crevices on counter tops, in cabinets, in drawers, around sinks and in cupboards. It is important to remember that a large roach infestation did not pop up over night and it will not go away over night. It can take several months to get rid of a large infestation.
QHow do you use the Maxforce FC Magnum in the reservoir if it does not come with a plunger?
AThe actual box of Maxforce FC Magnum does not come with a plunger, but we provide one with every order free of charge for you to push the gel out. We also sell the plungers individually if you would like additional units. If you happen to lose the plunger that comes with your order, you can always use your finger or a highlighter marker to advance the gel out of the tube.

QDo cat litter boxes attract German roaches?
ACat litter boxes that are not cleaned daily could indeed attract roaches. Be sure to follow the instructions on the litter product that you choose to learn how frequently you should change the litter.
QHow can I get roaches out of my electronics?
I have roaches in some of my electronics, some newer stuff, still under a warranty, and don't want to void it by opening it up. For example a Playstation 3. What is the best thing to do to get them out of there?
AYou can place a roach bait gel such as Maxforce FC Magnum on a piece of tin foil or plastic wrap and set it on and under the electronics. The roaches should be attracted to the gel, eat it and this will help kill the roaches. It will not stop them from dying in the device however. You could also surround the device with insect glueboards to trap the roaches as they leave to feed. Unfortunately there is nothing that we can recommend to spray into electronics because of the chance something could be damaged.
QWhat is the best bait brand for Roaches?
I treat local stores in my area. For example Dunkin Donuts and average Pizza place etc. I have tried using Talstar 1 but does not seem to get rid of the roaches and i keep getting call backs. So i was wondering which gel bait would be the best to use for my situation. Thanks a lot for taking your time out and sparing your knowledge to me and others.
AWe would recommend baiting very heavily using Maxforce FC Magnum roach gel. Small dabs in a ton of places is the key. In addition you should use Gentrol Point Source, which is an IGR which will prevent the roaches from maturing and reproducing which in turn will slow down the life cycle and the numbers of small roaches you are dealing with. You should use both the gel and the gentrol point source in places off of the ground. Around the floor area and underneath things you should apply Phantom liquid which is a non-repellent product that roaches can pick up when they walk over it and transfer it to other roaches in hiding areas that you cannot reach, like inside wall voids. The use of these three key products should start to knock down large numbers of roaches unless there is some major sanitation issues that have not been corrected. Obviously any food or water sources that are not cleaned up and taken care of will prolong the problem indefinitely. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

QI am trying to get rid of roaches.
I keep in tight containers, keep kitchen and bathroom clean, take out trash everyday but still seem to have a present in both area what else can I do? Frustrated
A We would recommend using a variety of products to combat the roaches. Maxforce FC Magnum is a very good bait gel to use. You will put the gel in small place points in problem areas, such as around stove, microwave, counters, drawers, etc. You should also use Temprid SC insecticide. You will use 8 mL per gallon of water. This will be sprayed along the baseboards and cracks and crevices indoors and around the perimeter of the home. We would also recommend mixing Temprid SC with an IGR, such as Gentrol. This will stop the roaches from reproducing. For longer control, we would recommend using Delta Dust Insecticide inside the wall voids with a bulb duster. You will take the light plates and electrical sockets off the wall and do a couple of puffs per hole. You will make sure that you are not spraying in places where the bait is. It will contaminate the bait and the roaches will not be attracted to it. All of these things will help to contain the roaches and eliminate them. This is not an instant process but the combination of these products should definitely take care of your roach problem.

QApplied maxforce fc magnum bait, when can items be returned to kitchen cabinets?
we don't have a huge problem with these pests.
ASince the maxforce magnum bait is only applied in small pea sized dabs along just the crevices of the cabinets, you can return the items immediately after application. We would suggest if you put some in silverware drawers to have the silverware in a tray to keep it from getting in the gel or wash the silver off just in case before using it.

QHow long before you have reapply the Maxforce gel?
My landlord used it in my apt, I was impressed by how fast it worked and it's still working. I love your product!
10/02/2013 Karen from Selden Ny
QCan I spray Gentrol in areas where Max Force Magnum has been applied?
AIt is true that you cannot spray insecticide and IGRs in the same exact places as you apply bait gels, but you can apply both products in the same rooms. Sprays such as the Gentrol IGR will be applied low around baseboards and under appliances and under and behind cabinets. Baits will be applied high, inside cabinets, on counters and around sinks and in drawers

QRoach bait gel safe for cats: Which brand is best?
Hi, I have a persistant roach problem (German) in my wood furniture and I would like to purchase the syringe-type bait dispenser product -- which is best (I live with a cat, so I want it to be as safe as possible). Thank you so much!
AWe recommend using Maxforce FC Magnum to treat for German Roaches among other types of roaches. Maxforce FC Magnum is the newest and fastest-acting roach bait ever by Maxforce. Maxforce Magnum is for use only as a spot or crack and crevice treatment for the indoor control of Cockroaches in residential areas and only in areas inaccessible to children and pets. You should place small dots of bait every 10-12 inches in kitchens and bathrooms directly in cracks and crevices on and under counter tops, in cabinets, cupboards, drawers and food pantries, around dishwashers, refrigerators, sinks, pipes and baseboards. Do not place bait on food prep surfaces or in places that you will frequently touch or in places that are frequently washed. You can also use Maxforce Magnum in other rooms in cracks and crevices if you are seeing roach activity in those areas.

QWhat is the shelf life of Maxforce FC Magnum? When should the gel be reapplied?
AMaxforce FC Magnum has a one year shelf life if stored away from extreme temperatures. Maxforce FC Magnum should be reapplied every 2 weeks. Any gel that was previously applied should be cleaned (sometimes it may be necessary to scrap away any gel that has become hard on the surface) and dried prior to applying the fresh bait.
07/17/2013 Denice from Los Angeles, Ca
QHow is Maxforce Magnum applied?
my problem is under the fridge
ATo apply Maxforce Magnum, you want to make green pea sized applications. Places to put a tiny dab of roach gel are places where roaches can sometimes congregate. Common areas for roaches to hide are: hinges of door frames, around the door frame, along the side and underneath of any cabinets against the walls (tiny crack where they meet the wall), inside corners of cabinets and drawers, underneath the lip of the counter top every 8 to 10 inches, corners of window frames, behind and underneath any appliances fridge, microwaves, etc. You can alos check out our application video on the product page.

QWhat is the difference between Maxforce FC baits & Maxforce baits other than the effective main ingredient?
Which is better for severe roach infestations?
AMaxforce 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.

QHow often should I rotate roach bait gels and insecticides for a roach control program?
how frencuent do we have to change bait for roaches or pests. ej. pesticide or gel bait. to keep a good IPM in home or busisness. please a want to know if i use gel or incecticide how often do i have to change and use another one. ?
AThere is no set guideline on how often you should rotate the baits and insecticides. A lot of professionals will use the same bait and insecticide as long as they are seeing good results. When the results start to falter they will then switch to a new material with a different active ingredient.
QI spoke to a pest control operator (that came to my work) about my roach problem. He recommended Maxforce .05.
I see you have Maxforce, but I'm not seeing the percentage in strength that he recommended. Can you help me, please?
AMaxforce makes many different roach gels that are all different percentages of strength. The one you are looking for is called Maxforce FC Magnum, and contains .05% fipronil.
