Fipronil

The active ingredient (Fipronil) is quickly becoming the star of several new pest control products. (Frontline Plus, Frontline, TopChoice, Over'n Out!, Maxforce FC Baits) When bugs come into contact with this product, they have not only contaminated themselves but any other of their species.  Once contaminated, the ant (or other targeted pest) no longer grooms itself or feeds, thus causing death.
Fipronil first came to the public's attention with the introduction of Frontline Topspot and Frontline Spray for the control of fleas on dogs and cats.  The most popular Fipronil product (at the time of this writing) is Maxforce FC roach bait gel.  (Maxforce FC has made elimination of cockroach populations easier and more effective than any other bait in the world.)  Next introduced was Termidor, a termiticide that is showing great promise for the control of termite problems in homes and other structures.  In early 2002, Over'n Out! fireant granules began taking its share of fireant control products.  For longer, more stable control of fire ants, professionals have begun to heavily rely on Top Choice granules.
Maxforce Tick Management System is an innovative product that entices mice into a small black box.  Inside of this box, mice receive a small dose of Fipronil.  In this case, Fipronil is used to kill ticks that carry Lyme Disease.  Certain mice are known to be an important link in the transfer of Lyme Disease.
