    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Effective, Easy application, inexpensive
    Cons: Liquid washes away quickly from exterior in rainy climates, use their crystals instead outdoors

    Summary: If you read my recent review of P est Offense, you know that I found that product to be pretty much worthless. Sure, it probably provided amusing entertainment for our household pests, but not much more. So, what does ... read more

    Pros: Has killed all noticeable bugs so far.
    Cons: None so far

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Keeps bugs out of the home; Simple application
    Cons: Not perfect- some bugs still get through
