Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sassie BEST STUFF EVER!!!!
I bought this product after my co-worker recommended it because I had a garage full of black widow spiders. I sprayed this stuff on the black widows and they withered up and died within 5 seconds no kidding. I have little children so it was of the utmost importance to get rid of these things. I also sprayed the inside of the house because we lived near a dumpster where flies would come in the house every time we opened the door. This stuff killed the flies, spiders, centipedes, whatever came in the house. I sprayed outside the door and inside the baseboards of the house. I never smell a thing because it's odorless.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wes READ: There is a cheaper, better alternative available.
This product just seems silly. The chemicals it uses are no doubt effective, but the spraying mechanism is a complete joke. If you want high quality protection, you need a 2 foot out/ 2 foot up spray around the house foundation, as well as a spray by any windows and doors. (I think domyownpestcontrol has a video that explains all of this) Applying that much product with what is basically a crummy windex sprayer is simply impractical.
There are bifenthrin concentrates available that are FAR cheaper (Talstar P, Bifen I/T, etc.) You can buy a 16 or 32 ounce bottle of the stuff for around $20, and 1 ounce makes 1 gallon. You only need a pump sprayer to apply it, a good one runs maybe $15. Your total initial investment will be about $40, but you will have FAR more product available (16 gallons versus 1.33 gallons) to use and a MUCH better way of using it. (Wand sprayer vs windex type thing.)
Mixed at a ratio of 1 ounce per gallon yields 0.06% bifenthrin. Home Defense Max is 0.05% with some cypermethrin mixed in for quicker initial knockdown (This just makes it so if you spray it directly on an insect, it kills it rather than having to wait for the bifenthrin to do the job.)
So forget this junk and get the real deal. You can even use other chemicals with the sprayer like weed killer, fungicide, deck wash, house wash, bleach + TSP cleaner, etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GTMc Prevented THOUSANDS from entering my home
I have millions of fire ants living in my yard. They were all over my trees, patio furniture, bbq and house. I threw this line down 6 inches up from the base of my patio furniture (mid leg) and then had no more ants or beatles crawling up my furniture. I did the same on the wheels of my bbq to the same effect.
In order to keep them out of my house I did all my exterior door jams, edged my windows and threw a line around my entire foundation. I now have 0 ants/beatles and even less spiders inside my residence.
I then edged the border of my pathway and driveway and no longer have any ants attaching me as I walk from home to vehicle.
Highly reccommend its ude

I am thoroughly unsatisfied with this product. I gave the inside and outside of my home a good spray down, got all in the cracks and dark places nasty roaches seem to come from. The next day a water bug is in my bedroom and a few days later a roach is in the kitchen. Both looked unphased, as if I had sprayed water around my place. I ended up pulling out the Raid. I don't see any benefits to this product. I've wasted my money and I still can't keep the bugs out.

I am a big-city midwesterner that just moved down to the woods of North Georgia - I got stung in my house by a southern devil scorpion, so my landlord gave me this stuff. The outside perimeter of the house was recently sprayed by a professional, so this is a second line of defense. We also have diatomaceous earth under the decks. If this stuff actually keeps my house scorpion free, I'm buying stock in the company! So far I have seen plenty of dead spiders so I know its working, but the real test is whether I can get back to sleeping at night without fear...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nomorespiders88 Great Product
I purchased this product mostly for spiders, and found it to be very effective :-) Within about a day I noticed a big difference. My only complaint is the spray wand stopped working for me. After trying the troubleshooting techniques and failing, I contacted customer support. They were very accommodating, and are sending me a new one.

Constantly spray around & inside the house yet spiders are constantly found in & around house. On multiple occasions have directly sprayed spiders yet they do not die from spray & crawl away.
