Customer Questions & Answers

Does this work against killing roaches and keeping them out of your hone????? I am DESPERATE

Asked by: Vanesss
Go find Viper RTU. This product is premixed and is safe for pet, people, and plants but kills about anything you have problems with. It may take a few times treating your house and it's $20 a gallon but cheaper than an exterminator!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stuff I have for years used this product to treat fire ant mounds successfully. When the neighbor who lives next to me needed about 20 mounds treated in her yard, I used this. All were successfully neutralized. What I like about this product is that it does not require watering in and works very quickly. I cut a 1/2 x 1/2 inch square from the edge of the paper seal to allow for more controlled sprinkling of the powder. I sprinkle some over the mound and poke the mound with a wire. The ants come rushing out to their doom. I sprinkle some powder directly on the ants and if and when they go back into the mound, they take the powder with them, killing the queen. By morning the mound is done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The bomb My landlord sent exterminators out to spray for roaches, they started coming out more. It did absolutely nothing. My neighnor had them so bad and would not let the exterminators in so the roaches began to migrate to my unit. A friend told me about orthene I spread it around the baseboards and in the alley around the dumpster which is under my bedroom window. And "BOOM" It wiped out both units. I havent seen a roach in a year. This stuff will put exterminators out of business. I could get paid big time if I advertised to get rid of roaches. I could do a commercial in favor of this product.

ORTHENE works very good, it's fast acting and the ant's 'love' it. Drawback vs. the popular granular stuff is that on a typically windy Spring day in central Texas the powder get dispersed by the wind easily and thus misses it's target. Not good as this is the time of year that mounds pop up all over the yards. I use both products depending on conditions on the day I have free to treat these pests.

I have also found another use for it and that is to get rid of yellow jacks. You just pour some into the hole (best after dark while they are down in the nest) next day their gone. One other use for me is at my water meter, just sprinkle a little down under the lid and it keeps all the creepy crawly bugs and snakes, no more surprises when you pick up the lid.
