Cockroaches, specifically American Cockroaches, German cockroaches, and palmetto bugs
Cockroach Gel Bait:
Each carton contains 1 tube containing 33 grams of bait plus active ingredient.
The Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Killer Bait an innovative formula in which cockroaches don't just need to eat the ingredient to die. The active ingredient within this cockroach gel bait is an insecticide called Fipronil and its more concentrated than regular Maxforce FC Select. Once ingested by cockroach it starts to disrupt the central nervous; however, it doesn't kill the cockroach immediately, it allows the cockroach to return to its harborage where other adult and nymph cockroaches are and spread the active ingredient through droppings and ultimately its remains . Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Killer Bait also works when the cockroach touches the gel allowing it to spread to other cockroaches through this method as well. Both ingestion and just touching of the gel allows for multiple generations of cockroaches to be terminated. While you might not see cockroach carcasses around your home, that does not mean the product isn't working. Once the cockroach has ingested or came in contact with the gel bait, it will return to its harborage and help spread the active to other cockroaches.
Gear Needed : Wear disposable gloves when handling the syringes and wash hands with soap and water once finished using the product.

First inspect the area to see how much product is necessary to use. Numerous smaller bait placements provide faster control than fewer larger placements. For a light to moderate infestation use up to 1.5 grams of product per square yard, which equates to about a quarter size spot. For a severe infestation use up to 3 grams per square yard, which is about double the size of a quarter. Cockroaches frequent along areas of construction and they love tight spots between equipment and floors. This gel can be used under baseboards, sinks, countertops, seats, around water pipes, water heaters, dishwasher equipment, in crack and crevices as well as voids where insects harbor.
