Goliath® Gel

Cockroach Bait

The gold standard for complete cockroach control

Key benefits

  • Lasting and cost-effective cockroach control
  • One bait per square metre
  • Transfer effect to other cockroaches

How it works

Goliath® Gel contains 0.5 g/kg of the active ingredient, meaning only small amounts of bait are required for the powerful Goliath Transfer Effect™ to start working through cockroach populations, providing unsurpassed levels of control.

Once cockroaches have eaten Goliath Gel, they act as mobile baits. Taking the Goliath dose back to the harbourage, they contaminate others through cannibalisation and consumption of faecal matter. That Transfer Effect extends its activity to areas which are difficult to treat and ensures that the whole population is fully controlled.

The Transfer Effect is particularly important since not all cockroaches will find the gel placements. Knockdown products like sprays, which cause rapid mortality, do not have this effect because the cockroaches are killed before they have the chance to return to the harbourage.

Goliath Gel controls cockroaches at their source, which translates into highly effective, long-term control. The gel that remains after the infestation has been controlled will continue to provide protection and control of future infestations for about three months.
