Fipronil is a broad spectrum insecticide that disrupts the insect central nervous system by blocking the passage of chloride ions through the GABA receptor and glutamate-gated chloride channels (GluCl), components of the central nervous system. This causes hyperexcitation of contaminated insects' nerves and muscles.
Products such as Martin's Prefurred Plus, Maxforce FC Select Roach Bait, Maxforce FC Roach Bait, Maxforce Magnum, Maxforce FC Ant Bait, Maxforce Carpenter Ant Bait, Taurus SC, FUSE Termiticide/Insecticide, and Termidor SC contain Fipronil.
These products work so well because the fipronil is non repelling and non detecting; allows the insects to move into the area without the chemical being detected.
