Answer: 
I don't know why the description says not safe for pets. It definitely IS safe as long as you let it dry first--says so on the label. Maybe it means that it should not be applied directly to pets? (duh)

@Matt, I appreciate your concern for your animals. Look at the MSDS - Material Safety Data sheet that is midway down this page, between product photos, on the the right of page in small print that says Info. An MSDS is what the hospital uses for medical care. It's provided for every chemical, even some pretty harmless ones. I have to hand it to Scotts for providing it without being asked.I would assume that a vapor affects a rat or human in the eyes, it would affect a dog or cat. So it has to be allowed to dry and be ventilated. If your dog chews on baseboards, that's a different matter. You can actually calculate the amt., of Bifenthrin that was toxic to rats; it's probably a large amt. MSDS - 10g/kg rat, dermal or skin. Read Less

Answer: 
This is a complicated question. 1. I believe the "legal" answer on the package says it does not. I find that hard to credit, but probably satisfies the lawyers. 2. It may serve to repel them, if not kill them, assuming you can dose a perimeter. 3. If it kills the insects the spiders eat, then that would help reduce the spider population. In other words, it is probably worth a try, if you don't want to Read More

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 617 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Doesn't last.. I bought this product hoping to keep the ants out of my home this summer, they are so bad this time of year! I paid around $13 and it was a well known brand, I figured it was worth it..and says it will last up to 12 months!! I sprayed around the perimeter and inside my home around doors and windows. At first I saw ants everywhere, after I sprayed I didn't see any ants for a good two weeks, but that didn't last.. Not even a full month later I am seeing ants again.. Absolutely frustrating, and $13 waisted... July 18, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kept bugs away, but Carpenter Ants returned within weeks I sprayed the perimeter concrete of my foundation. The bugs that were there all fled or quickly retreated. I had one trouble area where the carpenter ants had a trail entering under my siding. This spray kept them away for a few weeks and then I had to respray the area where they had returned. That worked for a few more weeks and they returned again. Now I've moved to targeting the carpenter ants with liquid bait. This product promises 12 month protection. That may be true, but not for carpenter ants. July 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Greatest Disappointment! I moved into a home 3 months back & noticed that I would see 2 roaches in a week which became 5 or more. I purchased this product thinking that it would help based upon reviews I read. Nevertheless, this product did absolutely nothing. When I sprayed the bugs it was like I was giving them mist from the hot weather. This product was such a great disappointment & I would not recommend buying it. July 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4 Stars Very good product For inside. No harsh smell and keeps 99% of bugs away. Have to spray more often for outside because of rain. July 10, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by does not work I sprayed a bunch of little black ants and all the cracks they were coming out of, it did kill the ants but not even 2 minutes later there were ants flowing out of the same cracks they did not seem to be bothered at all by the still damp ortho home defense that was all over the area July 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Product does not work well at all. I sprayed along base boards under furniture and in cabinets and didn't seem to stop cockroaches or spiders. I will not buy anymore of this water or whatever it is. It's no good period. I used another product that is cheaper and actually works. July 11, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not good for roaches I sprayed thr hole bottle point blank to roaches on my property and they just kept crawling all over the place.then I though maybe it may takes some time for the product to work , so the next morning I went outside hoping to see some dead ones .big surprise! Not even one (except for the ones a kill with my shoe when I stepped on them).the roaches I'm talking about are some dark color some light brown with wings about 1 inche long and some are longer. June 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works very well on bugs, spiders, and ants I use this every spring around the windows and doors of my home under my deck, and spray all around the rafters and gutters on my boat dock.Lasts outside for several months, and much longer indoors away from the weather. Best thing I've found to control spiders! if spraying overhead, be sure to wait for calm day, so as not to have the spray blowing back in your face and eyes and arms. June 7, 2016
