Why Goliath® Gel?

The high potency of fipronil and the palatability of its gel formulation make Goliath® Gel faster acting and more reliable than many other gel baits or insecticide sprays. It is active against all major cockroach pest species.

A single 0.03g spot of Goliath® Gel is capable of killing 1,000 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.

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 drastically increases the number of individuals killed by a single bait point with the so-called cascade effect which increases with population density. It also ensures that 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 formulation that remains both attractive and active for as long as 12 weeks, providing extra protection against recolonisation from nearby untreated populations.

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.

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.

Who will benefit from Goliath® Gel?

Cockroaches can ruin a reputation, sometimes dealing a fatal blow to your business. If you run a catering establishment, you simply can’t afford the risk of your customers seeing those pests scurry around dining areas. By calling on a pest control operator who uses Goliath® Gel, you can be sure that any cockroaches on your premises are dealt with rapidly and completely.

Maintaining high standards of food hygiene is of paramount importance in commercial kitchens, processing plants, storage areas and more generally, wherever food is prepared and stored. When it comes to cockroach control, food business operators know that they can rely on the potency and cascade effect of Goliath® Gel to provide lasting protection.

No one likes to see cockroaches infest their homes. Their nocturnal habits and ability to shelter in cracks and crevices make them difficult to control without professional help. Pest control operators are experienced in optimal bait placement and using Goliath® Gel ensures that they can deliver the bait exactly on the target site.
