The best indoor insect CONTROLLER ever!

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Doesn't smell. Easy application. Lasts a long time. Great stuff!

Cons:N O N E to me! Lots to someone who sprays bugs for a living!

The Bottom Line: Buy it. It works great at controlling indoor insects and doesn't smell. Lasts a long time.


I have used this product for so long I cannot remember. As an aside, I grew up smelling that disgusting RAID smell, and it was not effective. Roaches everywhere!

When I bought my home, I used a bug control company. Stuff stunk and needed to be reapplied frequently. Also, E X P E N S I V E!

I tried this product and didn't think it would work at first. Too cheap. No stinky odor...it can't possibly kill if it doesn't stink! I was wrong. It does exactly what it claims to do!

I apply it behind furniture. On top of outside door thresholds. Along outside window seals. On the floor of the back wall of the pantry. Under the sink(s) and in the attic. Everywhere bugs can find you. I spray VERY MINIMALLY! Just a shot or two in one area generally works. You don't have to coat the area. Think, one squirt, move a foot or two, another squirt, etc.

I use to apply it along the exposed baseboards. Since we got puppies, I don't feel comfortable letting them lick it off! And yes, the dogs can find it!

The MSDS (Material Safety Data Sheet) shows it is non-toxic to humans and pets when allowed to fully dry.

So, here is what you do: Buy the product. Get the animals out of the way. Spray behind furniture. Under sinks. On outside door thresholds. In the attic. In the garage.

I would not use it outside unless you follow the precautions for saving the good critters - bees, etc.

The only bad thing is all of the dead bugs you'll find around your home...Wait! That's a GOOD thing!

In a nutshell - A GREAT product!
