Maxforce Roach Bait Gel (Bayer) is used as an effective crack and crevice treatment to achieve a rapid reduction of roach populations indoors and out.
There are two sizes: boxes of (4 x 30 g. tubes); and 60 g. tubes.
We provide 1 Plunger PER ORDER for each box of (4 x 30 g. tubes) to expel the bait from the tubes. You can purchase extra plungers or you can purchase a bait gun for use with this product. We recommend the Masterline Professional Bait Gun for use with the 30 g. tubes.
The 60 g. tubes come with a plunger that is already in the tube.
Maxforce FC is a professional version of the over-the-counter product called COMBAT ROACH KILLING GEL.
|Active Ingredient:||Fipronil 0.01%|
|Target pests:||American, Brown-banded, German, Smoky brown, Oriental|
|For use in:||Keep tightly capped and use within 2 years. Do not spray near baits, do not use heavy detergents or cleaners, or do not use in very dusty area. Gel will dry out and get a dry skin on top but roaches will still eat it up to a year. However, if contaminated or gone, reapply.|
|Application:||1 tube treats 30-120 square yards depending on infestation. Smaller, more frequent gel placements provide faster control than larger, less frequent placements.|
|Yield:||Good IPM program does rotate baits (bait with different active ingredient) as roaches may not be attracted to the bait matrix of what is being used anymore.|

How Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel Works
Maxforce Roach Bait Gel with fipronil is simply irresistible to roaches. When other baits won't attract aberrant-feeding roaches, Maxforce Roach Bait Gel will. In side-by-side comparisons, Maxforce Roach Bait Gel outperformed competing brands. With a proprietary formula developed by Bayer, the gel attracts and kills both finicky and normal roaches — even when sanitation is poor and other food sources are available. Maxforce Roach Bait Gel provides long residual and fast control of even large roaches.
Maxforce's exclusive Domino Effect delayed killing action enables one contaminated roach to kill many others where they live and breed. A foraging roach will receive a lethal dose from a single feeding, but lives long enough to return to the harborage where its poisoned feces are consumed by other roaches. It's all possible with Fipronil, the active ingredient in Maxforce Roach Gel, that has no known resistance in roaches and is odor-free. 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.
About the Accelerated Maxforce Domino Effect
Our fast control formula still gives you superior long-term control of roaches compared to contact sprays. The active ingredient, Fipronil, provides a unique mode of action that works through both ingestion and contact, knocking down roaches and ants 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.
Roaches, German Roaches, American Roaches
PESTS CONTROLLED: Cockroaches including German Roaches, American Roaches, Brown-Banded Roaches, Smokey-Brown Roaches, Oriental Roaches
Target Uses of Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel
Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is labeled for both indoor and outdoor use, including commercial kitchens. What's more, you can use Maxforce Gel in residential food processing areas without covering food preparation surfaces during treatment. It's also fine to use in occupied rooms of hospitals, nursing homes and extended care facilities.
Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel can be used for virtually any roach infestation, but should not be used as a preventative measure. Be sure to eliminate competing food and water sources for best results when using baits.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Fipronil 0.01%
Application rate is dependent on level of infestation and species to be controlled; see application rate table. Apply bait as a spot or as a bead in cracks and crevices. The lower application rate should be used for low to moderate infestations or re-treatments, and the higher rate for more severe infestations or where the population occurs in inaccessible areas. 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.
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.
Pest population reduction will be apparent with 2 -or- 3 days for German roaches and 8 days for American roaches.
Prior to using, gel may need to be shaken well if any separation has occurred. On 30 g tubes, unscrew the black cap (or break off the tip) and replace with included open tip. After use, replace the black cap before storage. For 60 g tubes, simply remove the white tip cover to use, then replace for storage.
*Always read the product label completely before use.
Each 60 g tube will yield approximately 60 bait placements. Each box of 4 x 30 g tubes will yield approximately 120 bait placements.
Standard Application Rates:
*1-2 spots (dime sized) or 1.5” – 3” bead: Moderate infestations or re-treats for German or Brown-banded roaches
*2-4 spots (quarter-sized) or 3” - 6” bead: Severe or heavy infestations
*1/3” to ½” spots: Large roaches such as American, Smokey-brown or Oriental
For use in the following areas:
Indoors and outdoors (adjacent to homes and structures) 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, mausoleums, meat processing and packaging plants, meat and vegetable canneries, pet shops and zoos. Non-food/non-feed areas include bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms, closets, media rooms, garbage rooms, lavatories, entries, vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, garages, mop closets and storage (after canning or bottling); food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments
Following is a general room-by-room placement guide for Maxforce Roach Bait Stations (Exact placement should be based on a complete monitoring and inspection. See our Indoor Roach Control Guide for images.):
Kitchen FC Bait Station Placements
* Refrigerator: Between refrigerator and nearby appliance, such as the dishwasher
* Sink: Alongside pipe collar where drainpipe enters the wall
* Cupboards: Flush mounted against an upper corner
* Other appliances: Behind microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, etc.
* Floor placements: underneath dishwasher and/or oven
Kitchen Gel Placements
* Drawers: Alongside the interior of the door frame
* Cupboards: Underneath selected cupboards where frame meets wall
* Counter: Underneath counter where sink is located
* Fume Hood: Along the inside rear corner of hood (ensure no gel will drip onto stove top)
Bathroom Bait Station Placements
* Toilet: Mounted on upper rear corner of tank
* Lower Cabinets: Flush mounted against an upper corner
* Sink: Alongside pipe collar where drainpipe enters the wall
Bathroom Gel Placements
* Sink: Upward angle into the overflow drain
* Condensation Surfaces: Places where condensation can build up such as the tops of doorframes and medicine cabinets, and alongside decorations
Other Rooms (Indoors) Bait Station Placements
* Closets: Flush mounted against an upper corner
* Appliances: Behind the television, stereo, computer monitor, fish tank, wall clocks, light fixtures, etc.
* Dressers: Flush mounted in corner alongside the interior of the drawer frame
* Furniture: Under base of couch and/or bed where crumbs accumulate
* Utility Room/Area: Underneath hot water heater and/or adjacent to washing machine
* Garage: Flush mounted to door frame where roaches can enter residence
Other Room Gel Placements
* Interior piping: Around all exposed interior pipe channels (such as hot water heater inlet)
Food Handling Establishments: Treatment is limited to crack and crevice treatment only. Place applicator tip 1/2 inch into cracks, crevices, holes and other small openings where roaches may be a problem. Apply small amounts of gel per spot. Do not apply bait to areas where food/feed, utensils or processing surfaces may become contaminated. Do not apply bait to areas that are routinely washed such as cracks and crevices in tops of tables, food/feed preparation and prepared food holding surfaces as bait may be removed by washing. 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 as necessary.
Place bait in areas adjacent to structures where 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 can also be applied in refillable bait stations every 20 to 30 feet around the perimeter of the structure. Use approx. 2 stations per side of a typical single family home. Do not exceed 2-4 spots (3”-6” bead) per station. Do not exceed up to 1 tsp. per station. For best results, place stations near: air conditioning units, water faucets, foundation vents and weep holes, decks, utility entryways (e.g. electrical, cable TV) and wherever cockroaches are frequently found. Regularly inspect and replace bait as needed.
Outdoor Gel Placements:
* Rain Gutters: Apply in seam between rain gutters and roof
* Attic and Soffit Vents: Between air vent holes
* Siding: Under siding/molding
* Exposed pipes: Around all exterior pipe collars or where pipe enters wall
* Also: In brick weep holes, in window cracks and crevices, around decks and stairs, around the intake vents of air conditioning units

*Gel may stain textiles and some porous surfaces. Place gel directly into cracks and crevices or hard-to-see areas where a stain will not cause a problem.
*Use within 2 years of purchase. Use a tube within 1 year of opening.
*Apply bait away from air currents to prevent drying. Avoid placement on paper, cardboard, or other porous surfaces such as unsealed concrete.
*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! See our page about How to Get Rid of Roaches for more information.
*Good programs rotate baits to avoid resistance. Change baits every few months or alternate with different bait (and different active ingredients) for best results.

Definitely the stuff to buy!
By Anna on 09/14/2008
What can I say except that if you have a roach problem this is definitely the stuff to buy. I used to dread going into my kitchen at night. As soon as I turned on the light there were roaches all over and nothing I used worked. And I used it all-- sprays, powders, bait, traps -- everything I heard of. Then I stumbled on this site and ordered Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel and Maxforce FC Roach Stations and put them both down. Well let me tell you, that was one year ago and I still have not seen any roaches and I definitely swear by this product and will swear by this product to all my friends. Use it if you have a roach because when you do you will see what I am talking about. Never use anything else... a VERY Satisfied customer.

No fumes, worked great
By Tammy on 05/19/2008
Trust me when I say this product works. I was afraid to go into my kitchen at night because the counter tops would be swarming with roaches. I used Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel after it was recommended to me by an exterminator and in a short time I had no more roaches. I used it once around six months ago it has been working since. I recently saw two roaches so I'll give my kitchen another application. Don't buy Raid or any of those other smelly products that don't work. This one does not smell and works 5 times better. I have two small children at home and was relieved that there were no fumes to worry about.

By Ashley in Brandon, Ms on 07/02/2010
I purchased Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel, Advion Roach Bait Gel, CB Borid Boric Acid Dust, Demon WP Insecticide, Gentrol IGR Concentrate, and Maxforce FC Roach Bait Stations (72 count) for my roach problem because I had out of town guest come to visit who brought them in from their suitcases. I was mortified at how quickly they multiplied and I was overwhelmed with the costs to get rid of them so I decided to purchase things myself. I had a really large order with DoMyOwnPestControl and before I completed the order they emailed me letting me know that I had purchased way more than I needed. That really spoke measures to me because most people would only care about making money. They told me what to get and how to use it and it hasn't even been a month and they are almost completely gone...If I see one he is dying. I will continue to use them for any pest control needs and I have referred my friends and family. Thanks!

Could not believe the results!
By Nedda on 07/25/2008
This is the best product me and my family have ever used. It stops them the moment you put the gel down. When I was living in an apartment complex the people that lived above me never use to empty their trash when needed. So it caused roaches in my unit- little ones and medium size. Well to make a long story short, this man was out one day, I believe he was testing the product Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel and he put some in my kitchen and he left the remaining of it with me. I forgot that I even had more and the next day there was not one single bug or roach. I could not believe it . So I called everyone I knew. I recommend all of the Maxforce products.

Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel gets the job done. I've lived in a roach infested apartment for over a year. One application of this product eliminated our roach problem. I don't write reviews, but this product is too good not to express my appreciation.
By Paula in Saraland, Al on 10/13/2017
Wow!! This product works and it was FAST!!! I put it out and within 2 weeks the roaches are GONE.!!!! I would for sure recommend this product to anyone with the German Roaches !!

I used the roach bait about 4pm on the day I recieved it. The next day they had all but dissapeared, the second day they were all gone. Great product. If you buy it you wont be disappointed
It worked great first time, but second time no change at all
By Jasbir in Chatsworth California on 09/29/2017
First time I ordered, product was fresh and had 2 month old mfg date and it worked great. In a week I could see the difference. But second time I ordered, I got 1 year old product, and I tried in same way and did not worked at all. I could not see even a single dead roach on floor. I am so upset. Now I have order again and going to call them for fresh product.

Does the job! Killed thousands or roaches!
By Michael in Durham, NC on 05/29/2017
This stuff works great in conjunction with Cyzmic CS and Gentrol point source. I had a terrible infestation when a tenant moved out a few weeks ago. They had lived there for one year and the home had never had roaches prior. It was so bad that they were literally in the ceiling corners of the rooms in broad daylight. There were thousands of them crawling everywhere!! They would eat the gel bait like candy. Seriously, right out of the syringe... like a baby! Keep in mind that with a bad infestation they eat this stuff and once gone, you need more. Buy more than you need to re-apply. The Cyzmic CS really helped drop the numbers down fast. Buy the larger quart size as you can go through the .4 oz bottles fast and will need more. It's been about 2 weeks and most of the problem is gone (like 95%). Still new babies and a few adults around. German roaches are TOUGH and need a good product to destroy them. Not the crap from the hardware stores. Not sure if the Gentrol is working or not but good measure so they don't reproduce. Thank you Do My Own!!

This is product is does absolutly nothing. Don't buy it
By Larissa in Sterling, VA on 04/30/2017
Please don't by this product. It does not help at all. What I think this company is scammers. They just want to get money from you. I will report them to the Better Business Buru for selling this fake product to the public.
Good morning, We are sorry to hear that you are not receiving the expected results from using this product. It does look like we advised you that roach baits alone would not be able to solve the roach infestation you have before you made this purchase. We recommended that you incorporate sanitation to get rid of competing food sources, insect growth regulators to stop the breeding and an insecticide spray to help eliminate the population quickly. The roach bait gel should be used in cracks and crevices where spraying is not appropriate. Please take a moment to review the roach control guide so you can learn how to implement a successful roach control program: http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/how-to-get-rid-of-roaches-a-458.html

QWill Maxforce FC Roach Gel hurt my cat or dog?
A Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is only strong enough to kill small roaches.† There is no evidence of secondary poisoning with Maxforce or any roach products for that matter.† Remember that a roach would eat such a small amount of gel, and the gel only contains .01% of active ingredient. There is no way that it would cause your cat to be sick.† Although the thought of eating roaches makes even us feel a little sick!

QWhat would happen if my dog or cat ingested the roach bait gel?
AMaxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is only strong enough to kill small roaches. There is no evidence of secondary poisoning with Maxforce or any roach products for that matter.
QHow safe is roach gel in my kitchen with food and children?
AMaxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is very safe to use in a kitchen when it is used as directed on the product label. According to the product label, you should place 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 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.
QWill gel roach baits attract other roaches if i live in an apartment building?
We just moved to a new apartment and seen two German roaches. We had a professional come and spray and also sprayed an IGR, however, were not sure if the roaches were here or are coming from another apartment building. If we get the Maxforce FC gel, will this attract them if they are coming from another apartment and make the problem worse? Thank you in advance for any help you can provide. I have a 6 month old who will start crawling soon, and I am worried he can get sick from the roaches.
ANo, Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel will not attract more roaches to it from other apartments. If they are there, they will eat the bait gel and die. We would not recommend putting the bait gel in places where the professional sprayed because it will contaminate the baits, and the roaches will not eat it. It is recommended that you put the bait gel in the cabinets and drawers and basically places where you cannot spray. The gel will dry out and get a dry skin on top but roaches will still eat it up to a year.
QCan I buy Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel in a store?
ANo. Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is a professional product that is not available in stores. You can always purchase the bait with us, we have free shipping!

QDoes intense heat ruin the effectiveness of the Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gell?
A Per the label the Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel††should not be applied on surfaces where the temperature exceeds 130 degrees Farenheit as the bait may run.†Examples include, but are not limited to portions of stoves, ovens, grills, fume hoods, heat lamps, coffee urns, steam tables, toasters, fryers, dishwashers, and hot water pipes. Care should be taken to avoid depositing gel onto exposed surfaces in general.†

QWill Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gels will it harm my dog?
My blue tick hound ingested the contents of two bait stations. Overnight she pooped once and vomited twice while in the house - something she hasn't done in over 8 years! She is very sluggish today. Not saying it was the bait packages but seems very odd timing if it wasn't. I'm pretty sure she will be okay but thought readers would like the feedback.
A Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel†is designed to be be used in areas pets should not be. Please keep in mind that normally the animal would need to consume large quantities for it to harm them. To be safe we would still recommend contacting the Vet.†

QIs it safe to place Maxforce FC gel in the pantry ?
I had pest control company coming monthly to treat german roaches. They were using bait gel, and after a year they said there is no need to continue coming (?). Only two months after I started seeing baby roaches ( did not know they can fly, so I did not realize that were baby roaches). I live in apartment, and I am not sure if other tenants do pest control, but I noticed those baby bugs crowl towards the ceiling and in apartment above no one resides for couple of months. I bought Maxforce FC bait gel and Gentrol to do the pest control myself, but I am not sure if I can apply the gel in my pantry, since I found a lot baby roaches in all kind of food, that I all threw away. Is it safe to place bait gel in the pantry and where is the best spot to place it ? And what else should I buy to keep myself protected ?
A Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is labeled to be applied in pantries. Please visit our Roach Guide which includes helpful tips and videos showing you exactly how and where to place the bait. As the applicator you want to where chemical resistant gloves such as Nitrile Chemical reistant gloves.†

QIs there something besides Maxforce Roach Bait I should use for roach treatment?
I live in a mobile home park which make's it even harder to get rid of ,but just if i could maintain them would work thank you..
A We would not recommend just using Maxforce Bait Gel when attempting to control roaches. If you have only applied twice, it may take more time to get rid of them. An insecticide, bait gel and a growth regulator should be used to control roaches. Please check out our Roach Control Kit Rotation A. The kit comes with all the products that you will need to successfully get rid of roaches. We do also have an awesome Roach Guide that gives all instructions on how to kill and prevent roaches.

QDo Maxforce FC kill bedbugs too?
AMaxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is labeled only for roaches and will not kill bedbugs. Treating for Bed Bugs will take a combination of products, not just one particular product. We recommend looking at our Bed Bug Kit Page. We have taken the guess work out of what products you will need to treat with and put them in kits depending on how many rooms you are treating. Each Kit comes with a 5 Step Treatment Guide on how to properly and thoroughly treat for bedbugs. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

QI placed the roach bait in my apartment for a month. There are still live roaches. Why?
I place the bait gel inside the kitchen cabinet and corner of walls.
A Roaches do not get there overnight so they will not leave overnight. It takes time for the bait to work through an active population. We highly recommend applying an insecticide and an insect growth regulator to the indoor and outdoor perimeter of the structure for a better treatment. I have also included a roach control article that offers great information. Please put out fresh bait once every two weeks. The food based ingredients attract them for consumption and they spread the product to one another. http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/cockroach-quick-tips-a-59.html http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/roach-control-t-4.html

QHow do I use the MaxForce FC Roach Gel?
ATo apply the MaxForce FC Roach Bait Gel tubes, you will place the plunger in the back of the bait tube and remove the cap on the opposite end of the tube. You are then ready to place pea size dabs to the crevices you are treating. If you have addtional questions or concerns, please contact us at 866-581-7378 M-F 9-5 PM EST. We are always happy to help!
QAfter using Maxforce Roach Killer Bait Gel, what is the best way to clean up the remaining gel?
I used the product in my kitchen. I didn't use it on counter tops or food prep surfaces, but I did use it in cabinets that hold dishes and along the molding, etc. The roaches seem to be gone, but most of the gel that I applied is still there. Is it enough to simply wipe it up with a damp rag?
AThe best way to clean up the roach gel is exactly as you stated. Use a wet rag with soap on it an it will come right up.
