    Cons: Slight smell with over saturation.

    Summary: Is there anything more annoying than getting up in the middle of the night and finding ants everywhere? I doubt it. It’s a preconceived notion that if you have ants or any type of insect in your house then it must be dirty. Guess again. After living ... read more

    Pros: User friendly container, easy to spray, good control.
    Cons: Outdoor lasting power=zero, trigger frequently leaks and runs down your hands.

    Summary: Ortho Home Defense....the label says "MAX" leading you to believe that this is the ultimate defense you can lay down around your home. While the results and lasting effects are better indoors than out, I think they should relabel it "MIN". True, it ... read more
