New Product Offers Formulation Designed for Modern Bait Rotation Strategies and New Bait Active Ingredient to Combat Aversion
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. (July, 18, 2014)
– To provide pest management professionals (PMPs) with a solution uniquely fit for today’s modern bait rotation strategies, Environmental Science
, a division of Bayer CropScience LP
, announced the registration and launch of Maxforce® Impact Roach Gel Bait
. Offering PMPs an innovative white matrix and a new bait active ingredient specially designed to combat aversion, Maxforce Impact has also been granted the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) reduced-risk status for cockroach control.
“For many years, pest control experts have been challenged by the evolution of cockroaches, their aversion to gel baits and how to successfully achieve stronger account retention,” said Ray Daniels, marketing manager, Baits & Termites. “With Maxforce Impact, we’re excited to deliver PMPs a solution that is highly effective on both normal and bait-averse strains of German roaches while providing more flexibility across a broad range of accounts.”
New Maxforce Impact is a white gel bait featuring Bayer’s controlled-release BlueBead technology, which contains an entirely new bait matrix designed with rotation in mind. The BlueBeads within the gel help carry a proprietary feeding stimulant that aids in the rapid consumption of the gel. Maxforce Impact also contains a novel active ingredient for baits, clothianidin, which quickly controls roaches while actively preventing resistance.
Maxforce Impact is free of the big-8 allergens, such as milk, eggs or nuts, making it ideal for sensitive accounts like food or pharmaceutical plants. Its white color reduces the risk of staining lighter surfaces and provides easier visibility when monitoring for bait consumption. Lab tests have shown Maxforce Impact to provide stability and reliability under a wide range of environmental conditions. Additionally, this gel bait does not require a signal word by the PMP or personal protective equipment for application.
“PMPs have for years trusted Bayer and the Maxforce portfolio of products for the effective control of cockroaches,” Daniels said. “We’re always looking toward the future and how we can continue to provide our customers with the revolutionary experience in cockroach management they can expect from Bayer.”
Maxforce Impact is the latest addition to the complete Maxforce Roach Control System.
It joins Maxforce FC Magnum, an ideal solution for handling clean-out problems, and Maxforce FC Select, an affordable choice for maintenance programs. Maxforce Impact provides PMPs the formulated-for-rotation option they need to protect their business from the threats of aversion and resistance.
