Key features and benefits
Contains: 1.026% Clothianidin
Pest control operators protect public health by managing cockroach infestations. These hardy insects can tolerate a wide range of environments ranging from extreme heat to colder temperatures making them a difficult pest problem to manage. The harmful effects of cockroach infestations can be significant within most residential and commercial conditions.
Maxforce® Platin is Hypoallergenic and perfect for sensitive environments.
The new active ingredient Clothianidin, alongside a new BlueBead feeding stimulant, tackles this problem head on to give pest controllers a unique tool in combating cockroaches and grey silverfish.
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.
|Cockroach Species: Against nymphs and adults||Application Rate per m²||Follow Up|
|Small Cockroaches i.e German Cockroaches (Blattella germanica)||
Moderate Infestation (cockroaches rarely visible during the day): 0.1 g/ m²
Severe infestation (cockroaches commonly visible during the day): 0.2 g/m² - using 2 spots of 0.1 g/m²
|The gel baits must stay in place at least 14 days for optimal efficacy. One month after, new fresh gel baits can be reapplied if cockroaches are still visible.|
|Large Cockroaches i.e Oriental Cockroaches (Blatta orientalis)||0.2 g/m² - using 2 spots of 0.1 g/m²||The gel baits must stay in place at least 4 weeks for optimal efficacy. If cockroaches are still visible, new fresh gel baits can be reapplied.|
|American Cockroaches (Periplaneta americana)||0.2 g/m² - using 2 spots of 0.1 g/m²
0.3 g/m² - using 3 spots of 0.1 g/m²
|The gel baits must stay in place at least 12 weeks for optimal efficacy. If cockroaches are still visible, new fresh gel baits can be reapplied.|
For use against grey silverfish: Place many small drops in areas where grey silverfish hide and live. These areas may be under or behind base/skirting boards, under wooden panelling or other areas that provide cover.
|Silverfish: mixed age population||Application Rate per m²||Follow Up|
|Grey Silverfish (Ctenolepisma longicaudatum)||0.1422g/m²**||The gel baits must stay in place at least 8 weeks for optimal efficacy. If grey silverfishes are still visible, new fresh gel baits can be reapplied.|
* 0.1g ≈ 1 drop of 7mm
** The application rate 0.1422 g/m² corresponds to approximately 20 spots of 3mm diameter per sqm or 65 drops of 2 mm diameter per sqm (1 drop of 2 mm diameter ≈ 0.002g, 1 drop of 3 mm diameter drop ≈ 0.007g)
