MAXFORCE Professional Insect Control® Roach Killer Bait Gel may be used as a spot or crack and crevice treatment for the indoor and outdoor control of cockroaches 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 and zoos. Non-food/non-feed areas are areas such as garbage rooms, lavatories, floor drains (to sewers), entries, and vestibules, offices, locker rooms, machine rooms, boiler rooms, garages, mop closets and storage (after canning or bottling). This product may also be used in food areas of food/feed handling establishments as outlined below.
MAXFORCE Professional Insect Control® Roach Killer Bait Gel is packaged in a plastic reservoir containing 30g. (1.05 oz) of bait 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 harborage's 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.
Applications in Food/Feed Handling Establishments: Application within food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments is limited to crack and crevice treatment only. If gel contacts an exposed surface where food is handled, remove gel and wash exposed surface with an effective cleaning compound followed by a potable water rinse prior to use. Apply with Maxforce Bait Injector directly into cracks and crevices. 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. Do not apply bait to surfaces where the temperature exceeds 130°F as 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. If gel contacts an exposed surface, remove gel and wash exposed surface.
Food/feed areas include areas for receiving, storage, packing (canning, bottling, wrapping, boxing), preparing edible waste storage, and enclosed processing systems (mills, dairies, edible oils, syrups). Serving areas are also considered a food/feed area when food is exposed and facility is in operation. 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. During follow-up visits inspect bait placements and reapply when necessary.
Application of this product in food/feed areas of food/feed handling establishments other than as a crack and crevice treatment
is not permitted.
Break-tip Reservoir: Prior to use, break the snip-tip closed end of the gel reservoir at the scored line. After use, the reservoir may be
resealed with the enclosed black outlet cap. The black outlet cap is reusable.
Directions for changing reservoirs: With the arrow on the drive rod pointing up, pull the drive rod out as far as it will go. Remove the
empty reservoir. Do not reuse empty reservoirs, place in trash. Reservoirs that still contain gel can be sealed with the end cap and outlet
cap for future use. To attach a new reservoir follow the above directions.
INFESTATION APPLICATION RATE (PER SQ. YD.)
MODERATE INFESTATIONS OR RETREATS FOR GERMAN OR BROWNBANDED ROACHES:
1-2 SPOTS ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE GEL SYRINGE CAP OR 1 1/2"- 3" BEAD

2-4 SPOTS ABOUT THE SIZE OF THE GEL SYRINGE CAP OR 3"-6" BEAD LARGE ROACHES SUCH AS AMERICAN, SMOKEY-BROWN OR ORIENTAL:
For outdoor use: 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.
