Pros: very effective, odorless, stainless
It is a war for our survival on this planet and we are losing. I just survived the latest attack in a pitched battle in my kitchen. There was a lot of hand to hand- er -foot to body combat and I was losing and suffering some near mortal bites as well when I called in the air-support (ORTHO HOME DEFENSE indoor and outdoor insect killer).
Just a few sprays of this stuff and all those mean little ants were DEAD! I mean really dead within a few seconds of coming in contact with this bug spray. All I had to do was sweep up their remains along with a couple roaches than had been hiding in a crack and the kitchen was mine again.
What is great about this stuff is that not only does is kill the bugs fast--It does not kill the people using it.
So many of the household bug sprays claim to be odorless and are not- in fact you want to hold your breath and then get out of the house for the next few hours. Not so with Ortho Home Defense. It really is odorless and stainless.
I also like the fact that it comes in the spray bottle instead of an aerosol can.
This stuff is very effective outside as well. I spray around the perimeter of my house and especially around door sills. Then about once a month I spray inside along the baseboards. Before I started using this stuff the crickets and cockroaches would run races across the living room carpet at night. Now the ones that survive entering the house are usually just about dead from contact with this spray as they crawled under the door sill.
Now about the ants. Arizona is one huge ant hill and these orney little fire ants are really aggressive. They will open up a new mound and in just a few hours the whole area is swarming with these vicious little biters. I spray this mound and in a couple of minutes the little buggers are gone.
I recommend keeping a bottle of this spray on hand because you never know when they will attack again.
