Maxforce Roach Killer Bait Gel uses fipronil, the active ingredient in many pest control products. When roaches eat the bait, they go back to the nest where their faeces are eaten by the roach's nest mates. Once the poisoned roaches die, the other roaches eat them, killing those roaches as well. One poisoned roach could possibly poison up to 44 additional roaches. Use the gel inside and outside your home to help stop your roach infestation.
