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, re-treatments
*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.
