Accelerated Maxforce Domino Effect™
Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait Gel's new fast control formula still gives you superior long-term control of roaches compared to contact sprays. The new active ingredient, 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.
1. To apply gel: Remove cap from tip -or- break off, touch tip to surface and depress plunger.
Recap after use.
2. Apply gel in spots in cracks and crevices. For best results, make -or-place many spots of
dabs of gel where you see ants foraging and entering the structure.
3. Do not apply the gel to areas which have been recently sprayed with insecticide or
contaminated with foggers, and do not spray insecticide over gel as this may cause the bait to
become repellent. Do not apply gel to areas that are routinely washed, such as counter tops, as
gel will be removed or diluted and spread onto the surface. If you have recently sprayed,
remove the dead ants and thoroughly clean the area before applying the gel.
4. Place the bait as follows; Gel can be placed in cracks, crevices, corners and any out of the
way place, such as under and behind kitchen appliances, along baseboards, under sinks, in
pantry, around pipes and water heater, window and door frames, and in the garage, attic, or
For indoor use: Visually inspect for ants and place gel in areas where you see ants. Likely
locations for ants and gel placements are areas where ants enter the building structure and
areas with potential water damage including: wall voids, cracks and crevices in kitchen,
bathroom, under sink, window sills, screen vents, garage, attic, and crawl spaces. Do not place
bait in locations that are routinely washed, as bait will be removed by washing. Do not treat
food preparation surfaces.
For outdoor use: Place gel outdoors into, on or adjacent to structures where you see ants,
next to ant trails and suspected areas of ant activity. Likely locations for ants and gel
placements are points of entry into structure and areas with potential water damage
including: eaves, soffits, weep holes, where wires and pipes come into the building
structure, trees, stumps, roots, wood decks, fences, planter boxes, woodpiles,
landscaping, and railroad ties. Extreme heat or cold, direct sunlight and water may reduce
the residual effectiveness. Apply Gel outdoors into MAXFORCE Refillable Bait Stations or
other devices designed to hold and protect bait outdoors. Close Refillable MAXFORCE Bait
Station securely after application.
Inspect placements and reapply as needed; The gel will remain attractive to ants for up to two
weeks. Inspect gel placements and reapply as needed. reapply in the same area if bait is gone or
in a different location if no ant activity is evident.
You will notice fewer ants in days.
