Goliath® Gel

Insecticides

Goliath® Gel is a biocide/insecticide for professional use, designed to control a range of species of cockroaches (Blattella germanica, Supella longipalpa, Periplaneta americana, Blattella orientalis).

Benefits

Advantages from using the product Goliath® Gel, the fastest and most cost effective cockroach treatment.

  • Fast, reliable action for immediate results
  • Cascade effect for complete control
  • Low dose rates for value and safety
  • Precision application for speed and accuracy

Goliath® Gel is the best way of minimizing the cost of cockroach treatment while maximizing its effectiveness and convenience for all concerned. It is a ready-to-use formulation of the advanced insecticide, fipronil, which is more potent and faster working than any other gel bait on the market.

Goliath® Gel is easy to apply with precision in the least possible time to give the most rapid, lasting and cost-effective cockroach control. It is applied discretely and the low dosage ensures the greatest safety and least disruption, even in the most sensitive areas.

Method of Application

Goliath® Gel is applied by use of bait application guns with great precision. With a light pressure on the trigger, through the needle 1 drop of Goliath® Gel with a diameter of 3 to 4 mm and a weight of 0.03 g is delivered on the target site.

Low Dose Rates for Value and Safety

The superior potency of fipronil means that treating cockroach infestations with Goliath® Gel requires at least 60% less bait than any alternative treatment. This makes a single tube go almost 3 times as far as other gel baits, offering far greater cost effectiveness in use than simple weight based comparisons suggest.

Together with the specially designed dosing gun which allows small bait points to be accurately placed in even the least accessible of locations, the lower bait requirement also allows valuable savings in treatment time.

Cascade Effect for Complete Control

Goliath® Gel takes advantage of the fact that poisoned cockroaches return to their harbourages before dying where other individuals consume both their faeces and remains. Laboratory and field studies show fipronil is readily transferred from one cockroach to another in this way. Its high potency ensures continued effectiveness even after several such transfers.

This dramatically increases the number of individuals killed by a single bait point in the so called cascade effect which increases with population density. It also ensures the fipronil reaches the young nymphs and egg bearing females that seldom venture far from harbourages, giving more complete control of infestations.

The lasting effect of Goliath® Gel is further enhanced by a very stable formulation that remains both attractive and active for a long period of time.

Dosage

Average infestation:

Apply one drop of 0.03g per square meter. A droplet of 3-4mm diameter is 0.03g of product.

German cockroaches (Blattella germanica):

  • Low infestation: 0.03g/m² (1 droplet / m²)
  • High infestation: 0.06g/m² (2 droplets / m²)

Oriental coackroaches (Blatta orientalis)

  • Low infestation: 0.06g/m² (2 droplets / m²)
  • High infestation: 0.09g/m² (3 droplets / m²)

American cockraoches (Periplaneta americana)

  • Low infestation: 0.06g/m² (2 droplets / m²)
  • High infestation: 0.09g/m² (3 droplets / m²)

Brown banded cockroaches (Supella longipalpa)

  • Low infestation: 0.03g/m² (1 droplet / m²)
  • High infestation: 0.06g/m² (2 droplets / m²)

Effective Use for the Greatest Value

  • Goliath® Gel contains 0.05% fipronil in a highly palatable and stable gel bait formulation.
  • It is supplied in 35g cartridges, each containing sufficient gel to produce more than 1100 standard 0.03g bait points and kill over a million German cockroaches.
  • Recommended application rates vary by cockroach type and level of infestation.
  • A 35g tube of Goliath® Gel will be sufficient to treat more than 20 domestic apartments or several substantial commercial catering premises.
  • Cleaning areas before treatment will improve the effectiveness of Goliath® Gel by minimizing other sources of food.
  • Other insecticides should not be used during treatment as these may discourage normal cockroach foraging.
  • Repellent insecticides should not be used during treatment as these may discourage normal cockroach foraging.

Fast, Reliable Action for Immediate Results

The high potency of fipronil and great palatability of its gel formulation make Goliath® Gel faster acting and more reliable than any other gel bait or insecticide spray. It is active against all major cockroach pest species including:

  • Blatella germanica (German cockroach)
  • Blatta orientalis (Oriental cockroach)
  • Periplaneta americana (American cockroach)
  • Supella longipalpa (Brown-banded cockroach).

A single 0.03g spot of Goliath® Gel is capable of killing 1000 cockroaches with an advanced formulation that makes it highly attractive to foraging individuals even in the presence of other food sources. This means feeding begins almost immediately after application and cockroaches die within a few hours of a single feed.
