The new active ingredient Clothianidin, helps avoid building resistance of actives other than neonicotinoids. Maxforce® Platin has also introduced BlueBead technology, this feeding stimulant ensures an excellent long lasting palatability. The new BlueBead taste enhancers are particulary attractive to feeding nymphs. The use of Clothianidin, alongside the newly introduced BlueBead technology tackles this problem head on to give pest controllers a unique tool in combating cockroaches and grey silverfish.
Great Secondary Control
The gel can be transferred from one cockroach to another beacause non-treated survivors can eat the dead bodies or faeces of individuals that have previously fed on the gel. The is known as the 'Domino Effect' and it enables Maxforce® Platin to control even those cockroaches that remain hidden within harbourages.
For maximum effectiveness the biocidal product must be placed in and around cockroach harbourages and, if possible, between these areas and food sources. In addition, for an optimal effectiveness, all natural sources of food palatable for cockroaches must be removed from the infested area to encourage the consumption of the bait. The application rate is adjusted to the density of the infestation and the type of cockroach found.
