DIRECTIONS FOR USE 

How to Get Rid of Cockroaches: The Complete Guide

It is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling.
 
Use Sites: In and around structures, including, but not limited to, homes, apartments, and other man-made structures, garages and transport vehicles.
 
Indoor Use: Results will be best if spilled food and other debris are cleaned up before applying bait. Apply bait so it is out of reach of children and pets. Apply bait only in cracks, crevices, voids, other inaccessible areas, and non-exposed surfaces such as the undersides of furniture and fixtures and under or behind appliances. If bait contacts exposed surfaces, remove bait and wash exposed surfaces. Do not contaminate food or feed. Do not apply bait to areas that are washed down frequently, such as in cracks around the edges of food prep surfaces. Do not apply bait in areas where there is a risk of electrical shock. Do not apply bait on hot surfaces or other areas where the temperature may exceed 130° F as the bait could melt and drip.
 
Roaches: Apply bait in small spots about ¼” (pea-sized) in diameter (about 0.5g). For most roach infestations, apply 10 to 20 spots per 100 square feet. Use the higher number of spots when infestations are heavy and/or when roaches are living primarily in walls voids or other inaccessible areas. Smaller, more frequent spots are better than occasional large spots. Bait may also be applied in tamper-resistant bait stations. Apply about 1 gram (3/8” size spot) in each station. Place 1-3 stations per 100 square feet, out of the way, in places where roaches may hide. Look for areas where roaches may hide or enter buildings. Some of these areas include areas where baseboards are peeling away from walls, cracks in and around equipment and appliances such as stoves, sinks, dishwashers, refrigerators, ice machines, and walk-in coolers, tubs, toilets, drain openings, hollow table legs, areas where pipes come through walls, cracks between different construction elements, around electrical boxes, cracks around hinges, where cabinets meet walls and cracks leading into wall, ceiling or floor voids. Pay particular attention to cracks which lead into void areas, even small ones. Inspect bait every 2-4 weeks and reapply when bait is almost entirely consumed.
 
Silverfish: Apply in 0.5g (pea-sized) spots for roaches.  Apply 5-10 spots per 100 square feet.  Bait areas where silverfish are seen, such as a bathroom, around bookcases, stacks of papers, or peeling wallpaper and to cracks between the living space and the attic, such as around light fixtures. Inspect bait after 2-4 weeks and reapply if bait is almost entirely consumed.
 
Ants: Apply bait in thin (1/4” wide) lines, about 1” long in areas where ants are seen trailing. Use 2-5 lines per 100 square feet. Bait is most effective when placed as close as possible to ant nests. Bait may also be applied in tamper-resistant stations. Apply 1-2 lines per station (as above) and use 1-3 stations per 100 sq ft. Inspect bait weekly and reapply when bait is almost entirely consumed.
 
Outdoor Use: Roaches, Ants and Silverfish - Apply bait so it is out of reach of children and pets. Apply bait only in cracks, crevices, voids, holes, other inaccessible areas, and other nonexposed surfaces. Apply bait in concealed areas on the outside surfaces of buildings and other structures, as well as in crawl spaces, attics, tree holes and other voids. Porches, garages, sheds, AC units and other outbuildings, fences or walls may also need treatment. Pay particular attention to cracks where insects may enter buildings and treat those areas. These areas include but aren’t limited to cracks around windows, doors, eaves and soffits, expansion joints, and areas where lines or pipes enter buildings. Under siding and molding are also attractive areas for insects to hide. Bait may also be applied in tamper-resistant bait stations. Inspect bait every 2-4 weeks and reapply when bait is almost entirely consumed

FAQ

Q. I used Maggie’s Farm Roach Killer bait, but I am still seeing roaches. Is that normal?

A. Our Roach Killer gel bait contains multiple food attractants to attract cockroaches to it, where they will feed on it, return to their nest, and die within a day or two. What happens next is known as the "domino effect." After they die, other roaches in the nest will consume the dead body, ingesting the toxic active ingredient, and in turn, also die. Baby roaches also consume the feces of adult roaches and can pick up the toxicant this way as well. 

If you have a roach infestation, you will continue to see roaches after you use Maggie's Farm Roach Killer until all roaches are affected and dead, though you should see fewer roaches shortly after they start taking the bait. The larger the infestation, the longer it will take to get total control over it, and the more bait placements you will need to make. 

It is important that you DO NOT USE any insecticide sprays around the bait placements, as you don't want to do anything that will prevent the roaches from taking the bait. The goal is to kill roaches, not temporarily chase them away. You want the roaches to eat the bait and die.

Q. Is the Maggie's Farm Roach Killer Bait all natural roach killer?

A. Due to EPA technicalities, we can’t refer to Maggie’s Farm Roach Killer Gel using the term “natural roach killer.” But our Roach Killer’s active ingredient is derived from soil microbes. It’s highly lethal for roaches, and very good for the earth.

Best Roach Killer for an Apartment

I live in a small apartment and have seen roaches here and there, no much help from the pest control service. So I went out and bought this Maggie's Farm Roach Killer, I liked that it is a more natural solution that spraying chemicals. I was worried about my dogs. Loved this stuff, I give this a 5 Star review! Stops those roaches in their tracks. so if you are looking for a great roach control product, this is the one. Easy to apply, video was very helpful.

Best Roach Killer

I would have to say that this product is one of the best roach killer gels on the market. Bought in local store and website offered easy to follow instructions. Could not have been simpler to use, and within just a couple of days, I saw a huge reduction in those nasty roaches. You will want to give you roach killer a try, you will not regret it!

Unbelievably effective

Neighbor moved. I inherited his roaches. I tried all the old regulars but bugs kept coming back. Saw Maggie's at Walmart. Loved the name. It was affordable so I took chance. YAA-HOO!! THIS STUFF WAS GREAT! Two weeks and ALL bugs were gone. Vacuumed up dead ones. Went from seeing them crawling up walls during DAY TO NOTHING. THAT WAS OVER YEAR AGO AND ALL I HAVE NOW IS AN EARWIG IN BATHROOM EVERY NOW AND THEN. IT WORKS LIKE IT SAYS.

Absolutely THE BEST

When a long time upstairs neighbor moved out, he forgot to take his bugs with him. I had never experienced an INFESTATION. I bought the widely advertised Raid,etc. Had to look at them to spray-- ARRRGHHH!! Saw Maggie's Farm in Wal mart and liked the name. Bought it, followed directions,and in less than 30 days, (more like couple weeks,) THERE WERE ONLY DEAD BUGS!! These varmits were coming out during day! They had congregated under my microwave and couch. THREW BOTH AWAY!! Waited watched still no bugs. I give to everyone i know who's moving or buys anything used. It DOES WHAT IT SAYS IT WILL DO. Don't waste your money on that other junk. PUT YOUR MONEY ON MAGGIES FARM. KILL BUGS. BE DONE WITH IT.
