    Pros: Easy to use, no mess, much cheaper than pro pest control.
    Cons: May evaporate if not stored correctly, spray all the corners or you'll get some bugs.

    Summary: Bugs are a fact of life in my neighborhood. If you don't have them now, you'll get them later, no matter how clean your house is. And because I live in a 75-year-old house, bugs have had plenty of time to find their way inside. The most common problem I ... read more
