The rate of application depends on the level of infestation and the species of cockroach being controlled, so users should consult the application rate table that accompanies the product. Place the bait gel underneath sinks, baseboards, countertops and seats. Apply it around water pipes, water heaters and dishwashers. When using the bait gel, numerous smaller placements of bait is generally more effective than fewer, larger areas, especially when dealing with German cockroaches.

When using MaxForce FC Roach Bait Stations, place the stations in any areas where the cockroaches have been seen, especially dark, damp or warm areas, as these are where cockroaches prefer to live. Use four to six bait stations for every 100 square feet of horizontal wall space, although no more than 24 bait stations should be used in a single residence. The bait stations should be placed flush in corners and adjacent to walls, and they can also be placed on vertical surfaces by peeling off the protective strip on the back of the station to expose the adhesive layer.
