Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Bait - 1 tube (33 gram) + Plunger & Tip

Walt Cline - Pest Control Professional Pro Tip: "This is the bait I suggest in apartments because unlike most gel baits Maxforce Magnum continues to work even after it dries out. In apartments roaches might migrate to your apartment from next door. It's nice to have a product that continues to work. Another bait that is really cool is Avert Flowable Roach Bait. This would work well with the Maxforce Magnum, flowing into areas that you can not place the Magnum.

We provide a plunger and tip with each tube. However, for greater control of bait placements, use the Masterline Bait Gun Add Gentrol Point Sources as insect growth regulators to have a form of birth control for roaches. The Victor Roach Pheromone Traps #327 will not only trap the roaches, but serve as monitoring tools.

Maxforce FC Magnum is five times the active ingredient (Fipronil), plus a new technology called Contact X that kills roaches even when they just touch the bait. Other roaches touch or eat the dead roach that just ate the Maxforce (Max Force).

Maxforce FC Magnum comes with a 33-gram syringe tube for application or use in a bait gun.

Packaging: 1 (33 gram) tube

Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Bait

Maxforce FC Magnum is the newest and fastest-acting roach bait ever by Maxforce from Bayer. With Maxforce Magnum you get five times the fipronil, plus a new technology called ContactX (TM) which kills roaches by contact as well as ingestion. That combined with Maxforce Magnum's irresistible formulation that attracts even the most finicky roaches, and you've got the next generation in roach killer bait gel. Maxforce FC Magnum comes in a 33-gram syringe, with 10% more bait than other bait gels that only come in 30-gram sizes. Whether roaches eat it, touch it, or share it, Maxforce Magnum kills more roaches faster than any other Maxforce product. A plastic plunger is included.

Maxforce Roach Killer Bait Gels has USDA authorization for use in federally-inspected meat and poultry plants. Maxforce Gel can be used 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.

The active ingredient in Maxforce FC Magnum, Fipronil, 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® still achieves population control, but with faster visible results.

Features List:

  • Long lasting control
  • See visible results overnight
  • 10% more bait (33 grams versus 30 grams per reservoir)
  • Irresistible bait formula
  • Kills on contact too
  • No vapor, fumes, or odor
  • For indoor and outdoor uses

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

I own a mobile home and in 2014 I started seeing cockroaches. Never dealt with them anywhere I've lived so I went to a store and looked around the pest shelves and read labels to see what was most impressive to me. I bought the recommended amount and placed them in my home as directed. Weeks went by and I saw no decrease in the critters.
So then I went online and checked out a few sites who advertised for insect removal. Most claimed to be #1. WRONG! They can't be higher than #2 because www.doyourownpestcontrol.com is #1 . You know what a dead cockroach looks like? Lying on it's back with it's feet reaching for the ceiling. Well, after watching the great videos on DYOPC I decided to give 'em a try.. I used the bait as directed and then within DAYS instead of seeing roaches running when the lights came on in the morning, I started to find them in the places where I had applied the bait...upside down!!! And gradually after weeks they were gone.
So don't fall for all of the pest control products who claim to be number one.

Worked great
Great product. Solved roach problem in about a week.

Works Amazingly!
Works amazingly! Just a few drops in inconspicuous places. No mess. No roaches!
Review by Alex / (Posted on 10/1/2018)
It works, No Douby
I've used lots of different types of bait but this one takes the trophy. Take your time looking for the hang-out areas and little antenna hiding in tight places. That's where you want to put the bait.
Review by Charles / (Posted on 3/3/2018)
5 stars
Most effective roach bait I've ever used. Recommended by a friend. Other bait are like candy to the roaches, but this gives you almost immediate results. 5/5
Review by Satisfied customer / (Posted on 9/25/2017)
Highly recommend.
I had big palmetto bugs in my kitchen and since applying MaxForce Magnum inside some cabinets and on thresholds of outside doors I have not seen one moving...though I did see three dead ones in my garage. Very satisfied with product.
Review by Babs / (Posted on 6/7/2017)
I remembered my mom used this about 10 years ago so I gave it a try it still works like a charm. It's more like magic I haven't seen a single roach! It's been about 3 weeks since I used the max force bait.
Review by Happy homie / (Posted on 3/28/2017)
A great product that really works in eliminating cockroaches.
Effective and easy to apply. After 1 week no more roaches! Great price. The best way to apply is lots of small amounts in nooks and. crannies in dark areas. This products works I can assure you.

Did Not Work
I posted a review on here last year about this product not working. The roaches are still here. The roaches never died off and just climbed over the bait like it was nothing. The bait is still there and I still have a roach Infestation.

awesome stuff
Folks I worked for Cook's Pest Control and this is exactly what they used. This stuff is awesome and works
Review by Jason / (Posted on 4/21/2016)
Excellent Product
Works extremely well
Review by Jim / (Posted on 12/7/2015)
Works Great
I use it about once every few days and it works like a charm. You have to be patient and resist the urge to kill the roaches. I have never had a big infestation but for me I see results in a few days. I have moved 4 times and have had to use this product every time. This move I have decided to treat every week for a month to hopefully get rid of any bugs forever. I've had a case where they came back after many months later (I was living in an apt so it could have been neighbors) and this go around I found a dead roach in the bathroom recently (after my first treatment) so I just want to be very sure they are gone gone.

Gonna Assume that it worked
I got the product about a month ago. I haven't seen any roaches since, but I think it's too soon to tell really. I do think it's working though.
Review by GCG / (Posted on 9/17/2015)
couldn't be more satisfied
Bought a fixer-upper dirt cheap and discovered an infestation of roaches, no sure what species. Was desperate as they'd multiplied and literally had the run of the house, so, I went online looking, seeking a product, determined to purchase anything and everything until something worked. I didn't have to look hard as I came upon this product. I ordered a couple to tubes at first just to try it. The amount of dead roaches the following morning let me know I was onto something. I ordered an entire case putting the gel onto small square pieces of cardboard placing them under furniture, the stove, dishwasher, washer and dryer. I used the plunger to apply it into the edges along the wall and floor and in the corners of the cabinets. I reapplied the gel once every couple of weeks for about 2 months, then stopped thinking I was never going to get rid of them all. About 2 months after stopping I noticed the roaches were gone, all were gone! I never thought I would find a product that would rid me of my roach infested nightmare. They never returned. I had a half a case left and gave it to others with the same problem and had them coming back to me for more. I cannot say enough good things about this product. I am here today ordering for a patient who has a roach problem and is at her wit's end over it and am paying for it because I know she cannot afford it. That is how much I believe in this product. It works!
Review by happy / (Posted on 7/30/2015)
This works as a clean up vector
While I don't particularly care for the dark color (looks like a roach from a distance!) I have to say it just kills 'em dead. And they're right, it keeps working when it's dry. It works on silverfish and earwigs too.
Thanks for a great product. You always come through.

Review by OLDMAN / (Posted on 3/31/2015)
good product, but was broken upon arrival
the gel works well on cockroaches, but when we received the product, the syringe (tube) was broken which made it hard to apply the gel. if would have been better if they used a more secure package instead of a bubble wrapped envelope.
Review by del / (Posted on 3/31/2015)
not good
I bought this product a while ago and was working just fine. A month ago I ordered maxforce roach bait, the big containers, didn't work at all. Then I ordered again maxforce fc magnum, still doesn't work at all. Did something changed in the formula because it's not working at all?? The bugs are having a party, not bothered by the bait.

DIY RESPONSE: Hi sorry it's not working for you anymore. The formula hasn't changed but some strains of roaches are resistant to certain active ingredients. The strain of roach you have currently is likely resistant to Maxforce Magnum, because all the other roaches that weren't resistant are now dead. The Maxforce product line recognized that some roaches were resistant to Maxforce Magnum, so they released a new product call Maxforce Impact: http://store.doyourownpestcontrol.com/maxforce-impact-roach-bait . Call us at 1-800-476-3368 if you need further assistance.

Product works fast and is easy to use
I've never really had a roach problem in any of the homes we have lived in (Florida, Georgia, Texas) I expect to see an occasional roach during dry spells etc. I started having more than usual in our home in Texas probably due to my pre teen and summer and her lazy behind, while leaving her dishes and drinks around the house and then putting them all in the sink before I got home from work. Anyway, my Mom bought this product for me a couple of years ago when she visited us in Georgia. She saw "a" roach so she bought this product and treated my house while she was visiting. . .I still had the container and kept it for the reorder info. I never saw a bug in that house after she treated it! Fast forward and in Texas I treated the house (3500 sq ft) with 6 tubes and honestly, I saw 2 dying roaches the next day on the floor and haven't seen another since. The directions say it may take up to three weeks, but it has worked much faster than that. I'm really pleased with the product and would recommend it to others. I have a business and use a professional exterminator and I hate it every time he comes in spraying insecticide all over the baseboards. It makes me feel very uneasy about breathing in the fumes-you cannot smell them, but I know they are there. I would much rather use this product, but out state requires a contract with a professional company for the business I am in. Any way I give it 5 stars.

Fewer roaches, yea!
Seeing much fewer roaches, but more bedbugs now. Had been hoping it would attract and kill all kinds of bugs, but i suppose one can't have everything.

nax force
I don't know what they've done to this product, but it hasn't done anything this go round for my roaches, the first time it worked great but this time, they crawl over it like it's not even there, hasn't helped a bit

DIY RESPONSE: Sorry to hear the product isn't working as you expected. Call us at 1-800-476-3368 and we'll help troubleshoot the issue. If there are other readily available food sources in the area, make sure to remove those so the roaches will feed on the bait.
Review by stump / (Posted on 6/12/2014)
good products good service
I've been using the on-line ordering of my DIY pest control for several years now, as my brother the exterminator talked me into doing it myself. Since then, I've saved big bucks. It's easy to do once you learn how to DIY. I give 'em 5 stars out of 5
Review by Pat / (Posted on 4/26/2014)
I am extremely impressed with this product. I viewed the current comments posted and decided that I would give it a try. I am very happy that I did and the results are fantastic. I have a 90 percent decrease in roaches and they are still dying. I even gave the neighbors on both sides of me a tube and they too are both happy with the outcome. Thank you for such an effective product, I highly recommend this product to anyone that lives in an apartment complex. You will not be disappointed!
Review by Tired of roaches / (Posted on 3/15/2014)
dead roaches hallelujah!!!!
Yes yes yes I give this stuff a 100 percent perfect serious review. All roaches are dead...I had moved into my own apartment this month and there were roaches everywhere...big big big bastards too. I went from killing literally 6 to 10 roaches per every 3 to 4 minutes to ABSOLUTELY NONE THANK GOD they are dead!!!! I could marry the person who invented this stuff!!!! So happy! Thank you MAXFORCE! THIS STUFF IS TOP!
Review by shamari / (Posted on 1/29/2014)
this stuff is awesome
I put it down and even injected some in the walls through nail holes. Within 24-48 most were gone I still see a few babies here and there and its been two weeks but I'm assuming its fresh hatches. We had 4 kinds of roaches and were infested thanks to roommates. They seem to be way under control. I have tried many many products this is the first that actually seemed to make a difference. We live in south Florida so totally bug free is an unrealistic dream but it is deffinetly tollerable now.

Thank you so much

The Absolute Best
I'm an apartment manager and rather than blow the $75+ per pest control visit, I took matters into my own hands and baited some apartments with Max Force. My resident fell all over herself wanting the name of the stuff, saying it was a miracle. They're back in her apartment but after 1 year and lots of kids leaving candy everywhere. I used it in my own apartment because I saw a couple when I first moved in and I have never seen another one since. Get the applicator gun, totally worth it

Ending the problem
I bought 2 tubes of this and I had tried several different products that claimed to kill and get rid of roaches and they would slim them down for a short period of time but never successfully eliminated my problem. So I researched ways to get rid of them FOREVER, and I came across this product bought two tubes, did as directed on the box and afterwards, I was completely rid of all the roaches that were taking my home away from me. This product is great and works just like having the professionals come in and spray your home. And i saved a lot of money by doing it myself. When I would find dead ones I would get my vacuum cleaner out and just vacuum them up and it was over and done with. I would definitely recommend this to product to anyone that has any sort of roach infestation problem. 5 stars all the way!!

Day Two
My daughter came to stay with us three or so years ago and brought a hitchhiker or two from her infested apartment at Ft. Hood. After three years they have taken over my kitchen and have starting setting up shop in my bathroom. I was going to call Terminex, but the expense changed my mind. I researched and found this site and MaxForce Gel Bait. I gave all the rooms a thorough scrubbing, and then laid down the bait in a bead every 10 inches, as recommended. I did this two nights ago. Today, day two, I am finding the little bastards coming out onto the floor, either dead or dying. I am sweeping them up about every hour or so, so I know it's working. So far, this is an answer to many prayers. I'll update in three weeks. That's when I should see "no more" of these ugly little critters.
Review by MassDestruction / (Posted on 11/30/2012)
I moved in to my new house and of course never saw the roaches till after we moved in and they started come out more and more i had fogged the house only to see them every where not just in one place like before i tried everything what did i have to loose so i bought one tube of this max force and i woke up the next morning and they were dead everywhere i swept them up and I am roach free. I am buying another tube just for safe measures.

Have you seen them?
Some how i got an infestation in my car, yes in my car I tried fumigator roach spray . The roaches still partied like it was 1999, I tried sticky traps caught the dumb ones,the intelligent ones stayed away. Ordered Maxforce and the roaches are no where to be found. I cant believe the fast results. Terminix can take me off their contact list cause, I'm gone! A must buy before they change the ingredients this stuff is the truth !!!

German Roaches AND Sugar Ants
I had roaches coming out of the woodwork while I was cooking. I had them in my portable dishwasher. They were in the lining of my refrigerator, and in all my kitchen cabinets. I also had a lot of sugar ants crawling on the kitchen counter and in my 2 bathrooms. I ordered 1 tube of the Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Bait- 1 (33 gram) tube and put some 3" to 4" strips at various places around the kitchen and bathrooms. The next morning, I moved my portable dishwasher and found dead roaches about 1/2" deep on the floor in a perfect square where the dishwasher was sitting. I also found a large number of dead one's under the refrigerator of which I was able to vacuum all of them up. Within 2 days, not only was I roach free but ant free as well. It appears this product worked on the sugar ants and got rid of them as well. I first purchased this product in April 2009. It has been 3 years since I used this product and I am now seeing sugar ants again (but no more roaches). I am re-ordering for the ants and highly recommend this product for German Roaches and Sugar Ant destruction. The 'included' syringe made it very easy to apply.
Review by Mark / (Posted on 3/19/2012)
I have used Maxforce roach killer bait gel before. I live in an apartment complex where people move in and out all the time. Once you get rid of the roaches there may be new neighbors that bring roaches.So it was time to put more roach bait out because I saw some roaches again. I wanted to order what I had already used but I saw the Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Bait and decided to give this a try. I will let you know how they compare.
