Fipronil

There’s a reason ants and cockroaches have survived for more than a 100 million years and continue to thrive today. These insects will never be stomped, smashed, or starved into submission. The creepy creatures have been eating and breeding and overwhelming human attempts to eliminate them since the caveman days. But, that doesn’t mean you have to peacefully coexist with ants and roaches. The bugs may be tough but humans are smarter. We have the knowhow to disrupt the GABA-gated chloride channels in the central nervous systems of ants and roaches. Or, to put in simpler terms, we have Combat Source Kill Max products with the active ingredient, Fipronil.

Fipronil is a fast acting insecticide ingredient commonly used by professional pest control companies to kill ants and roaches. Combat® is the only brand of consumer ant and roach products to feature this hard-hitting ingredient. If the very sight of cockroaches makes your skin crawl, you’ll love the way Combat Source Kill Max for large or small cockroaches works. Roaches eat the bait and the Fipronil disrupts the insect’s central nervous system leading to death within hours. When the poisoned roach scuttles back to its nest it rubs against its nest mates. The Fipronil is then transferred to the others. As the roach dies, its poisoned feces and carcass continues to distribute the Fipronil which results in a cascading effect, wiping out the entire colony. Combat Source Kill Max Ant Bait works the same way.

Fipronil is also the effective active ingredient in Combat Source Kill Max Gel. The gel is used in cracks and crevices where the critters enter your house and hide. Fipronil is the quickest way to make your home ant and roach free and strike up another victory in the ongoing war between people and pests.
