New Label for Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Killer Bait Gel

Supplier News

The label improvements include control of stored product pests, lower application rate, and more.

| August 18, 2011

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. – Environmental Science, a business unit of Bayer CropScience LP, has announced new Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) accepted label directions for Maxforce FC Magnum Roach Killer Bait Gel. With five times the fipronil, Magnum delivers fast knockdown and unsurpassed control of cockroaches, and is now labeled for control of pantry pests, application into the new Maxforce Refillable Buffet Stations, and a new, lower application rate for cockroaches that will save PMPs both time and money, according to Bayer.

Maxforce FC Magnum’s new label offers effective control of exposed adult stages of stored product pest beetles. Seventeen different species have been added to the label, including; dermestid beetles, drugstore beetles, saw-tooth grain beetles, red flour beetles, warehouse beetles and rice weevils, making it the only cockroach gel bait labeled for such pests. This label addition provides PMPs with a unique bait that attracts stored product pests and can be applied in voids, cracks and crevices, and behind and under cupboards and other difficult-to-reach areas where both cockroaches and stored product pests often hide, killing multiple pests with just one product.

The new label also allows the use of Maxforce FC Magnum with Maxforce Refillable Buffet Stations, further extending the attractiveness of bait by protecting it from the elements, eliminating bait absorption into porous surfaces, and enabling PMPs to remove bait placements from accounts if necessary. Now sold separately in boxes of 48, the economical stations are easy to fill and inspect, and are effective for both indoor and outdoor use for cockroaches and ants. Finally, Magnum’s lower application rate for maintenance control of cockroaches reduces the label rate and material costs in half.

“We’re excited to announce the new label,” said Gordon Morrison, Maxforce market manager for Environmental Science. “The efficacy against cockroaches and stored product pests offers a convenient, extra level of protection, especially in food handling areas where both pests are commonly found. In addition, the lower application rate for maintenance control of cockroaches provides PMPs with a significant cost savings, which is something we are always striving to achieve for our customers.”
