Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel
  • Alternate Image 1

Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel kills roaches by ingestion and contact, and spreads from roach to roach through the Domino Effect of Fipronil. Maxforce FC Select will kill even the most bait adverse and finicky roaches. With the broadest label available, the best bait acceptance, and virtual population elimination, it is no wonder Maxforce Roach Killer Gels are some of the most popular roach baits among professionals. Each box comes with 4 x 30 gram tubes.

We provide 1 Plunger PER ORDER 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 using the Masterline Professional Bait Gun.

How Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel Works

Maxforce FC Select combines a unique, highly attractive bait matrix with the power of Fipronil. 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'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. Maxforce FC Select has better bait acceptance compared with many other baits, among normal and bait averse roaches, and it even works where other food sources may be available. Either way, the Domino Effect works through ingestion and through contact in hard-to-reach and inaccessible areas.

Target Pests

Most common cockroaches, bait averse German Roaches

PESTS CONTROLLED: Cockroaches including American Roaches, Oriental Roaches, Brown Roaches, Smoky Brown Roaches, German Roaches

Target Uses of Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel

Maxforce FC Select can be used for virtually any roach infestation, even in sensitive areas. Because of its newer bait matrix, Maxforce FC Select is a good choice for bait averse roaches or as one bait among many in a long-term bait rotation, such as in apartments, restaurants, or similar areas highly susceptible to reinfestations.


Application Instructions

Use Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel as a spot or crack and crevice treatment indoors and/or as a crack and crevice treatment outdoors adjacent to structures. 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 cracks and crevices as well as voids where insects harbor.

Pest population reduction will be apparent within 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. 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 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 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


See our Indoor Roach Control Guide for images of placement examples. Below is a general placement guide for Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel. Exact placements should be based on a complete monitoring and inspection.

Kitchen 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 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
* 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.

Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel Features

Extra Tips

*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.

*Do not apply bait to areas where the temperature exceeds 130 degrees F as bait may run.

*May stain textiles and clothing.

*Sanitation should always be the top priority when treating for roaches! Read all the bullets under step 1 on our roach control page to learn more about how to get rid of roaches using sanitation.

*Good programs rotate baits to avoid resistance. Change baits every few months or alternate with different bait (and different active ingredients) for best results.

    5 of 5 stars  Great product
    By Brian in AL on 10/15/2010
    Verified Purchase

    I was a bit desperate after a long, hot and dry summer turned our house into a swingers' pad for roaches. The night that I saw ten roaches in the mud room, I knew it was time to do something since the store-bought products just weren't cutting it. I found and ordered what I hoped would control a quickly worsening problem and we weren't disappointed. We used the Maxforce bait stations together with the Maxforce FC gel, boric acid powder in the basement and attic and the Cyonara LP granules outside. Don't let the $35 price of this gel scare you off. The stuff is great and is easy to apply behind toilets, by pipes and any other hard to reach place. It simply works. After just a few days, no more roaches. I'm very satisfied with the products and with They are a vendor I will use again.

    5 of 5 stars  Best I have ever seen!
    By Icedsweetrose in Rockford, IL on 04/11/2011

    This is the best roach killer product I have ever seen and purchased. I live in a trailer in which I didn't think I would ever see the end of the roach problem, but after purchasing this product, I recommend to others this is the best ever and works fast. I purchased a 4pk, I decided to just try it out in the bathroom, after a few days I didn't see anymore roaches. They were disappearing all over, down the hallway, even in the kitchen. I was going away for the weekend so I put more through out the trailer, we don't see them anymore unless it is a dead one. Well worth the money I spent.

    I used the Maxforce gel in my appartment in conjonction with bait stations. I don't feel like I had a heavy infestation but I was seeing a few roaches everyday. It is super easy to apply and I havent seen ONE roach since I used this three weeks ago. It took me a couple hours to put the gel and the stations, now I have peace of mind! Use it!

    5 of 5 stars  Great results with Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel
    By Jo in Van Nuys, CA on 10/24/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this to use for German roaches in an apartment. I had previously tried many other sprays and baits and they didn't make nearly the impact that this product did. I have pets and wanted something I could be sure I could put out where they couldn't get to it and this product works great for that. By the very next day I saw many dead roaches and very few live ones. Love this stuff! Only downside is the difficultly cleaning the reusable applicator tip, but that is minor compared to how great the stuff works.

    5 of 5 stars  Thank Heavens for Maxforce FC Select Roach Gait Gel
    By Eleanor in Lincoln, NE on 08/12/2011
    Verified Purchase

    We used your product in a rental house. Your product was recommended to us by a county extension agent. Finally we feel we have control of the roaches. The house is in immaculate condition now and almost ready to re-rent. Also, we have starved the roaches and have removed any source of water, We added a little clorox to all drains and bathroom stools but it was Maxforce that did the job. We will still treat periodically. Be certain to check behind smoke alarms. That is a hiding place for eggs.

    5 of 5 stars  This product is the "Hotness"
    By Sidney in NY on 06/11/2011
    Verified Purchase

    I own a three story storefront apt building. When we bought it we knew it had a very bad roach infestation. In fact, the apt on the second floor had an actual roach nest behind a deep freezer that the tenant had in the kitchen. It was the nastiest thing I ever saw in my entire life. I have a strong stomach and I ran out of there puking and stuff. Then through some intense investigative work, I found the loves of my pest control life "Domyownpestcontrol" and MaxForce.  We bought this product along with the IGR (Roach birth control stuff) and it was a wrap!!  No roaches at all, done...over.. I mean NONE. This is amazing!!!! While I started noticing the difference in about two weeks, it took about 60 days for the place to be a newly transformed "Roach Free Zone" I love this site!!!! Thanks a bunch you guys rock hard!!

    Man this stuff works great. I ordered the 4 pack but didn't even need to use more then one for my kitchen. After two days of using this gel I did not see any live roaches in my kitchen. Just every morning I would see dead roaches laying on the floor. Its been about a month and have yet to see any roaches crawling anywhere around the kitchen.

QWhat is the difference between the Maxforce FC Select roach bait gel and MaxForce FC roach bait gel?

AThe Maxforce FC Roach Bait gel comes in a 60 gram tube and is the original formula. The Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait Gel comes in a smaller 30 gram tube that is designed to be able to be used on bait guns to make application easier. Maxforce FC Select contains the same active ingredient as the original Maxforce FC, but the attractants have been reformulated to help attract even the most bait adverse roaches.

QHow long does MaxForce FC Select Roach Bait Gel work before you have to use it again?


Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel will remain effective for months once it is applied.  However, what really determines how often you should apply it is how much activity you have.  If you have a lot of roach activity, then once you apply the product it could be eaten by the roaches in just a few days and you would need to re-apply often to keep up with the activity.

QWhat is the most effective roach gel for german roaches?
is there an expiration date on the maxforce magnum gel?

AMaxforce Magnum does have the fastest knockdown and is a great choice for a quick clean-out when used as part of a roach control program. Roach Baits do not come with expiration dates but we do encourage folks to use the bait within 1 year of purchase as the food based ingredients will eventually degrade and be less attractive to roaches.
