I wanted to believe. I wanted to write a "it was awesome" review. Truth is, it doesn't work. PERIOD! I live in a small house in Missouri with no basement. A crawl space. Two adults in the house who are VERY clean. No food or dirty dishes left out, and food in plastic containers. Have roaches. Took nearly everything out of the house before using. Used the spray EVERYWHERE. 5 days later, still have the same roach problem and see even more baby ones than before! SAVE YOUR TIME AND MONEY! If someone knows what DOES work, please advise me here.

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

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spiker This product really works.
I love the product, I hate the battery sprayer. Please put the old
sprayer back on the jugs. Don't fix what isn't broken. The battery operated sprayer leaks a lot. It's hard to stop when you are in a
tight place spraying into corners and such.
PLUS, the new sprayer added a LOT to the in store cost of the product. Another brand of home defense has the old sprayer and is 1/3 the cost of the Ortho. Yes, 1/3 the cost. I hope the product is good or the bugs will be loving my yard.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by KingRyanidas Instant results, inefficient sprayer, zero staying power.
For starters, yes. This stuff kills everything, fast. But so does Raid and Black Flag and a number of other cheaper aerosol cans that are far easier to use for instantly killing a lot of nasties at once. That's why the "average value" and "average quality" ratings.
The sprayer is terrible. It has a "laser" mode, a fog type spray mode, and a slightly mistier spray mode. Per the label, for outdoor defense, it needs to be sprayed in a 12" band. None of these spray modes really facilitate that. What it really needs is a wide, flat, "high" pressure sprayer for outdoor, and a slightly narrower one for indoor use.
There is little to no lingering effect. I've now used two jugs of this on the perimeter of my house. And yes, whenever I use it, things die. Lots of them. However, after emptying two jugs in three weeks, there shouldn't be lots of them left to die; but there they are. More black widows every time I turn around. With the sprayer supplied, it is exceedingly difficult to apply in accordance with the label, and takes quite a while. I have a small house. Small garage. Smaller yard. With the concentration and amount I've had to put down, is a miracle my dog and I are still standing. But we are, and so are our black widows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LLLnMML Best Thing EVER!!!!!!
We have used this product for a couple of years now and it does the best job so far on fleas, ants, spiders, HUGE black water bugs and those icky nasty german water roaches.....we live by the local water filtration plant AND where 3 rivers come together so our yard is sandy dirt which fleas thrive in and this year they were EXTREMELY bad due to the drought then the constant rainfall which caused the flea population to explode the worst i have ever seen...we r still trying to rid our pets of them but they are dying off fairly quick due to this product being used in the home....now we are dealing with a bed bug problem...nothing has worked on those so far so we are hoping this may have an effect even though they aren't listed on the label as being one of the creepy crawlies this product is for... i will post on here and let everyone know how well it works on those nasty buggers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ging81 This stuff is awesome!
We picked this product up after being unsatisfied with other products and methods. We hads sugar ants coming in the house through any gap in a window screen that they could find. Even though it states that it is safe to use indoors, we sprayed the perimeter of our house along with window frames and door frames. We had a large amount of dead ants and bugs along the outside of the house ... it was disgusting honestly, but goes to show how effective that the product is! We are still going on two months with zero bugs in the house.
We also decided to spray inside the perimeter of our garage in preperation for an upcoming party. We had first used a fogger in the garage and then cleaned it very well. After spraying this product, we AGAIN had a large amount of gross dead bugs. Our GARAGE is still bug free! I cannot say enough good things about this product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by newhomey1 the best stuff for killing bugs at home
I have used this product for many years and it always outperforms the other available products. the protection lasts and the initial application kills immediately.
