Maxforce Professional Roach Gel with Hydramethylnon kills roaches by ingestion and contact, and spreads from roach to roach to kill even the roaches you don't see. Maxforce Roach Gel has a slower kill than the Fipronil (Maxforce FC) formulation, but the delay allows the poison to spread more thoroughly through the roach population. Each box contains 4 x 30 gram tubes of bait.
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.
Very slim part of tip must be snipped off to open the tube.

How Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel Works
New Maxforce Roach Killer Bait Gel 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 new 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 Hydramethylnon, the active ingredient in Maxforce Roach Gel. Hydramethylnon is a metabolic inhibitor (in a group of pesticides called trifluoromethyl aminohydrazones) with a unique delayed-action property to maximize control of ant and roach populations. This causes the target pest to have decreased energy, lethargy, and the inability to perform basic life-sustaining functions such as feeding and grooming. Symptoms are delayed, with death typically occurring within 24 to 72 hours.
About the Maxforce Domino Effect
Our control formula gives you superior long-term control of roaches compared to contact sprays. The active ingredient, Hydramethylnon, 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 achieves population control with this roach gel bait with hydramethylnon. Maxforce Pro Roach has a slower kill than the fipronil formulations (Maxforce FC), but it is found to spread more thoroughly through the roach population for a better secondary kill.
Roaches, including American, Brown-banded, German, Oriental, Smoky Brown
PESTS CONTROLLED: Cockroaches including German Roaches, Brown-Banded Roaches, American Roaches, Smokey-Brown Roaches, and Oriental Roaches
Maxforce FC Roach Bait Gel is labeled for both indoor and outdoor use, including commercial kitchens. Maxforce Roach Bait Gel has USDA authorization for use in federally inspected meat and poultry plants. 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 Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel can be used for virtually any roach infestation, but it should not be used solely as a preventative measure. The slower-acting Hydramethylnon makes this bait ideal for low-level infestations or situations that may have remained stagnant for long periods of time. Be sure to eliminate competing food and water sources for best results when using baits.
ACTIVE INGREDIENT: Hydramethylnon 2.15%
Apply Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel as a spot or crack and crevice treatment indoors and outdoors. Application rate is dependent on level of infestation and species to be controlled. Bait can be applied as spots 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, such as in walls. Gel placements should be at or near harborages or aggregation areas, such as corners, areas of movement or cracks and crevices. Numerous smaller placements will provide faster control than fewer larger spots, especially for German cockroach control.
Pest population reduction will be apparent within a week or less.
Unscrew the black cap (or break off the tip) and replace with included open tip before use. After use, replace the black cap before storage.
Maxforce Roach Killer Bait Gel may be placed into refillable bait stations designed for interior or exterior/perimeter use; when placing bait in the station, do not exceed the capacity of the station’s reservoir. Close bait station securely after application. Inspect placements and reapply as needed.
***Always read the product label completely before use.
Each box of 4 x 30 g tubes yields approximately 120 bait placements.
Standard Application Rates:
*1-2 spots about the size of the gel syringe cap or 1.5” – 3” bead: Moderate infestations or retreats for German or Brown-banded roaches
*2-4 spots about the size of the gel syringe cap or 3” – 6” bead: Severe or heavy infestations for German or Brown-banded roaches
*Spot sizes ¼ - ½ g (actual size syringe cap): Large roaches such as American, Smokey-brown, or Oriental
For use in the following areas:
Indoors and outdoors 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, schools, laboratories, computer facilities, sewers, “aircraft”, buses, boats/ships, trains, pet shops, zoos; food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments; USDA Federally Inspected meat, poultry, and shell egg grading plants
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 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

* 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/Feed 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 in areas adjacent to structures where roaches may rest 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.
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

Results are amazing.
By Terry on 09/05/2008
I worked in a Nashville, TN restaurant as a manager for a few years (2000-2006). One of our locations was infested with roaches. After Termin----, etc etc would come in and spray, the roaches came out everywhere! Terrible for business, terrible on our health department reports. After 3 years I got so frustrated with this problem and so worried I might start bringing them home with me, I did some Internet research. I read about Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel and asked the general manager if we could please try this. He said we were not allowed to do our own pest control (apply it ourselves) as a health department rule. So I talked to our pest control company and I can't remember their name or I would use it here, and they said yes they had heard of Maxforce and he would start using it in our restaurant. Within 2 months we couldn't find a roach if we tried. Two months may sound like a lot of time but considering the size of our restaurant and the huge infestation we had, that was a miracle. I am now out of the restaurant business and live on a farm in Texas 2008. I have no idea how, but after living here for over a year we now have roaches in our house! Even with all the restaurants I worked in that had roach problems I managed to never bring them home. It brings back nightmares. So I now am going to purchase this product to bait my farmhouse. I can't wait until the product arrives and I already know the results will be amazing.

My daughter's boyfriend gave us a tube of the MaxForce Pro Roach Killer Gait Gel being that we had a problem with roaches. After using fogs and other roach bait nothing seemed to get rid of them all. Thanks to my daughter's boyfriend we used the MaxForce and saw some results a couple of days later when we saw that they had come out and had died on the floor. This is some great stuff you are selling. Please don't ever stop cause if I ever need you again I know where to come to order it. Thanks Again, Happy Customer In South Carolina

It did kill some roaches.....
By Craig in Universal City, tx on 06/12/2010
It did kill some roaches. But not all of them. Maybe I need to buy more.
In a very bad infestation it is important to use a variety of products. If the infestation is out of control before you start to treat, the problem is that the roaches can reproduce almost faster than they die. To slow down the reproduction cycle you should use an IGR (Insect Growth Regulator) with the roach gel. Also, the roach gel will only work if you do not leave out other food to compete with it. You must take out trash at night, sweep floors, do not leave any dirty dishes in sinks at night, etc.

This product works!!
By Amer on 09/08/2008
This product works! I've spent hundreds of dollars on roach foggers, bait and sprays from Home Depot & Lowes and nothing worked. After using Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel I noticed a lot less roaches in my kitchen in about 2 weeks and almost none in about 3 to 4 weeks. I also wanted to thank everyone on here for writing reviews about this product (and others) and the knowledgeable staff that recommended this product to me.

My maxforce experience
By Margarette in Dorchester on 11/24/2015
I had so much coach roaches in my kitchen, my bathrooms, my bedroom. I didn't know what to do. I Google for help with roaches safely and found this life saver company here. Now we have no more roaches. I bought a pack for my dad's house. I want to see how that's going to go. But this has been the best decision I've made.

Maxforce Roach killer
By Frankquisha in Tallulah, La on 10/22/2015
I have used the product and it didn't work my home is still infested so I will have to try another product because it did not kill anything. I am disappointed with the product.
We are sorry to hear that you did not receive the expected results. You have only been treating for a very short time. Moderate to heavy roach populations can take months to get rid of. Roach infestations do not build up quickly and they are usually not eliminated quickly. The Maxforce bait that you selected is a very slow acting product and it is not unusual to not see dead roaches because they often die in the same places that they nest and these places are usually inaccessible. Please take a few minutes to read over our How to Treat for Roaches Guide to learn how to implement a successful roach control program. Bait is a step in the right direction but roach control programs are a mix of the right insecticides, baits and non-chemical practices. Our guide will explain all of this in easy to follow instructions, step by step videos and graphics as well as help tips. Please let us know if you have any questions or if we can be of further assistance. You can reach via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1-866-581-7378 http://www.domyownpestcontrol.com/how-to-get-rid-of-roaches-a-458.html

no more pests!
By Anthony in Uvalde, Texas on 06/29/2015
So grateful that I found this product online ..... My wife and I had tried so many different chemicals and nothing worked. We had called pest control to come out and it was going to cost us 150 dollars a month for three months, when I found Maxforce and gave it a shot ..... My wife was ecstatic it worked the first night the German roaches started eating it right away and by morning all we had to do was vacuum up the dead pests !

Ask a Question
QDoes the Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel have an expiration date?
ANo, the manufacturer does not label Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel with an expiration date. We recommend that you use the bait within one year from the date of purchase to ensure freshness. Be sure to store the bait in a cool, dry place and out of direct sunlight.
QHow often do I need to re-apply the Maxforce Pro Roach Bait gel?
I live in an apartment. I use stuff from the market, and it stops them for few weeks but they start coming back again. How long will one application work?
AThe Maxforce Pro Roach Bait Gel will stay effective for several weeks after it is applied. It will not prevent new roaches from moving in, it will only kill the roaches as they happen to eat it. We recommend that you use caulk or other suitable material to close any crack, crevice or gap around baseboards, pipes, wires, cables, cabinets, vents, door frames, window frames and any other place where insects could enter. This will help stop the roaches from moving from adjoining apartments through the walls and into your apartment. In addition, you should spray around the perimeter of each room with a good insecticide such as Demon WP and you should use an insect growth regulator (Gentrol) to control the breeding cycle of the roaches that have already entered your apartment. We do have a roach control kit that contains all of the products you need to get rid of the roaches you have now and help keep them gone, the Roach Control Kit 2.

QIs Maxforce Pro Roach bait safe to use with pets in the household? Cats in particular.
AMaxforce Pro is safe to use in a home with cats and other pets when used as directed on the product label. Maxforce Pro 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 Pro in other rooms in cracks and crevices if you are seeing roach activity in those areas.

QWhat else is inMaxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel other than the active ingredient to make it attractive to roaches?
Fibronli i know. I mean is it sugary substance or whatesle? it make attractive to cockroches?
AThe Max Force Pro Roach Gel actually contains hyrdamethylnon as the active ingredient and is made from a combination of carbohydrate and protein based foods that make the gel very attractive to roaches. As for what is actually put in the base, that is proprietary industry information that the manufacturer does not release as they do not want other manufacturers copying their formula.

QDoes the plunger & injector tip come with the box of 4 of the MaxForce Pro Roach Kill Bait Gel?
AA plunger and 2 tips is provided to expel the bait from the tubes with every box of MaxForce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel
05/01/2014 Patience from Salt Lake City, Utah.
QIs Maxforce harmful to humans?, what do I do if a child ate Maxforce gel?
AGenerally, Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel would only be harmful to humans if "tubes" were consumed. Please also contact the manufacturer Bayer 800-331-2867 for further instructions.
QCan we use Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel inside a telephone?
I found a roach nest inside some of my office telephones. Is the roach gel harmful to humans? If the roach gel is placed on the base and then the headset was placed on the base, will it transfer from the headset to ear?
AWe recommend placing Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel on the underside of the telephone base where people would be less likey to come in contact with the gel placements. When used properly, Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel is safe for use around humans. Please read the product label before applying the gel to ensure correct application. Nuvan Prostrips may be helpful in eliminating the roaches from the telephones. The phones would need to be placed in a sealed bag or container for several days with the Nuvan Prostrips to eliminate the live roaches.

QHow much maxforce pro roach killer will i need to purchase for a 2500 sq ft house?
AThe manufacturer does not give a quantity per so many square feet. It just depends on how bad your infestation is and how many rooms in the house you need to treat. Most of the time the problem is confined to the kitchen first, and then bathrooms. If you have a bad infestation, then it may be in all of the rooms. If you have a light infestation, only see them at night, and they are only in the kitchen, then 1 box will probably do the trick. If you have a heavy infestation then you may need 3 or 4 boxes worth.
12/14/2014 Corina from Urbana, Ohio
QI'm wondering if one box of Maxforce Pro Roach Killer will do for our home?
We have only seen roaches in our kitchen, mostly at night and in the early morning hiding behind appliances, etc... We have never seen them in the bathroom (we have a split level house and there are no bathrooms on the kitchen level). Is it possible that they are limited to the kitchen? The infestation is only 3-5 months old and seems to have occurred after we bought a used fridge.
AYes, one box of Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel (Hydramethylnon) will be enough to treat your home. However, whenever you are treating a roach infestation we would recommend using an IGR (insect growth regulator) such as Gentrol Point Source to stop the reproductive cycle of the roaches.
08/23/2011 Eunice from Hong Kong
QIs Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel allowed to ship to Hong Kong?
ASince we do not export to other countries we do not have any export information available. We recommend that you contact the Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel manufacturer directly for more information. Bayer - (800) 331-2867

QWill the Maxforce Pro Roach Bait Gel work on spiders. If not is there a gel for spiders.
AMaxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel is not labeled for spiders. To treat spiders we recommend using a residual spray and making it impossible for the spiders to web. To do this we have put together a spider control kit. The spider control kit includes a residual spray, insect glueboards and Web out a spray that makes the surfaces sprayed slick so that spiders cannot web.

QWhat to know the difference between product
I am wanting to know what the difference is in the Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel and the Maxforce FC Magnum?
AThe difference between Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel and Maxforce FC Magnum is the active ingredient. Maxforce Pro Roach Killer Bait Gel contains hydramethylnon and Maxforce FC Magnum contains fipronil as its active ingredient.
