This stuff is amazing. First, you break the seal, replace the lid and shake the granules while walking around your house; it’s just like shaking Parmesan cheese. Then you wait a day or two, and, viola, no more crickets. Really, for us, it was that easy. We’ve had to use this once before a few years ago and the residual effect lasted a long time. Furthermore, this is the first time I’ve used an insect control and didn’t feel like I had to go through some decontamination chamber after using it.
10 years ago carpenter ants where devouring our house, actually eating it up. Used max force and haven’t had any problems since. Great stuff. Just shake it out around our house and let the ants pick it up and take it back to the nest. The ants in the nest eat it and they all die.
This product works. I have been using for 20 years. It really works.
Many years ago I called a exterminator for a carpenter ant problem. He went around the house and tossed a half capful of Maxforce granules against the base of house every 6-8 feet or so. Never had to call him again – I do it myself and save $$$ – this stuff, along with Maxforce gel, WORKS!

The product is effective. The dispenser lid is pretty useless in the humidity of the deep south largely because it seems to clump behind the holes. So in the 4# jug you have to be very careful putting the granules down using the wide open mouth half of the lid. It lends to pouring out much more than you need. You folks need to marry the pour lids of the smaller cylinder size with the 4# jug for that to be cost effective. The product is still the best barrier for keeping bugs outside the home I’ve ever used in 25 yrs of homeownership.
I’ve purchased this in the past from BugSpray.com (although I seem to remember it in a different container or something…anyway) and used it with GREAT results. This Spring, though, was very busy for me and my pest control got wayyyy behind. And boy did I notice it. I’m in SE Michigan. Ants all over the deck, around the house, huge ant hills in the yard…bad. Thankfully very few inside house. Thinking “better late than never”, I purchased and applied it this month (July) and saw very quick results. Little to no activity in a matter of days on the ant hills in the yard and no ants on the deck. This stuff really does work.
I love Bugspray.com. They’ve been my go-to for a number of different products over the years. Very good quality, reliable, good shipping. I’ve called and talked on the phone with them and the guy I’ve talked to has always been very knowledgeable, patient, and super helpful.

This stuff is the core of my program in Houston Texas – home of Texas sized cockroaches among other pests.
I put a barrier around my outside 3 to 4 times a year and have virtually no pests inside. IN FACT I have NEVER sprayed insecticide inside my house since it was built in 1994. I hate that smell and wonder about the cancer………
These U-Spray folks are great and a joy to do business with. I recommend both the MaxForce and buying it from them – their knowledge base is awesome and is worth whatever – but they are competitive so it’s a nice plus.

We recently started getting the large cockroaches in the house, one or two here and there and always upside down dead. I assume they are walking through the spray from what the pest company puts down outside the backdoor. They appear to be coming in the back door from the patio, and I find several dead on the patio as well. Late last summer we put backyard landscaping in, including a palm tree. I suspect they are coming from there. I never see any during the day. After reading all of your information on large cock roaches I think using the Maxforce Granules is my best option, right? Can I use it in the landscaping with no harm to flowers, trees, and bushes?
Tech Support says
Your “best” option would be to spray the homes siding, ground, tree, mulch etc. with our Bithor which is listed in our article:

The Maxforce can help but its based on the roaches eating it, something they may or may not do if they have an alternate food supply keep them happy.
