Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Unique07 Spectracide my choice for years!
Have you found a specific named product and you stick with the product because it simply works and at a good price? We actually had a gallon delivered from Home Depot because we were running low. I was very pleased how well packaged the liquid was. I have brought gallon bottles home in my trunk only to find a awful mess due to leaking.
I have been using Spectracide inside my house as well along the outside of my house for as long as I can remember. No odor, No residue!
However I disagree with the "12 Month Control". Once a month especially in the Summer months Florida has allot of insect activity.
We have 3 dogs and none of them are irritated by Spectracided but I usually spray in the evening when everyone's in bed. I spray along all of the baseboards, I open and spray closets and cupboard doors that do not contain dish wear, under dressers as well as other funiture.,I spray both front and back patios, the garage and all window sills inside and out.
As I said we have 3 dogs that constantly are running in and out. We live in Florida and we are known for those big ugly palmetto bugs, roachs, ants and fleas, oh and we have scorpions....ewe!
If we see a bug, it's a Dead Bug!

no stain, no Odor, because it no work, it does nothing,
the worst bug spray ever. it's better if you spray water or spit on the bug.

The Bug Stop RTU Home Insect Control is the best defense against creepy and crawly things but many of the little boogers have developed a knack for finding their way into porches, garages, utility sheds and especially decks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Redhead Good stuff!
I am a long time user of Spectracide products because of the brand quality. Bug Stop Home Barrier spray lives up to their standard. The spray is non-staining, water-based clear formula with no oily residue or odor. Can be used indoors and outdoors around the foundation. It kills ants, roaches, fleas, ticks, spiders, termites, and carpet beetles to name a few. It kills many other insects (see label for full list). My house is built on a 3 foot high foundation with vinyl siding. I spray this product completely around the underneath bottom edge of the siding every six months and can confirm that it kills and prevents insects from entering the house. I also spray around all exterior window and door frames and indoors around all my baseboards/floor edges every six months. I live in a rural area and with the insect population I have found that once per year is not adequate for insect control. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because the tubing from the container to the spray nozzle is only 6" long and can be cumbersome when spraying because it is too short. It needs to be longer as seen on other competitive brands. Nonetheless, it is a great product!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SeniorAdvice Bug Stop...Makes spiders laugh! (I think)
I hate bugs!
Every Spring I buy tons of bug killers for the lawn and around the house, inside and out.
When I got this product home I immediately put the sprayer on and went to work in and around the garage and around the perimeter of my house.
A couple of days later, a nice sunny day, I'm checking to see how many of the flowers have bloomed and I look at my front steps around my enclosed porch.
What do I see??
Several spiders sunning themselves! How cute :o(
I had just saturated this area two days before with the "Bug Stop"....I guess it didn't STOP the spiders!
I went and got and jug of Bug Stop and started spraying the little demons. It took several sprays, directly on them to stop them from walking.
I monitor the entire house all Summer to see if the bug products are working and have yet to find one that REALLY kills all bugs and keeps them away which is why I said I would not recommend this product. But for those who are not as obscessive as I am, it might work just fine. Good Luck.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GFactor Good Product - Save Your Sprayer on the Empty Containers!
I have been using this product for several years and every time I buy a new gallon, I laugh at the statement it lasts 12 month. I finally read the fine print, and the 12 months is on NON POROUS Surfaces, which means it works for 12 months on glass and ???
But anyway, for the money, I still think it is the best value out there. We live in the California Desert, so ants, crickets, black widows are very common, and eliminating the first critter in that list, usually eliminates the following as its meal ticket is gone.
Since my wife is deadly afraid of crickets of all things, the spray comes in handy. Speaking of the sprayer, it is very easy to damage it by squeezing it too fast or if the nozzle is closed. Because of this, I always save the sprayers on my empty bottles, just in case I break the one on the newest bottle. Home Depot would return it, but since it is an easy problem to overcome, I see no reason to bother.

Does nothing to stop bugs from entering home. Followed deirections and sprayed inside all rooms and around perimeter of house. Reated application 2 weeks later. Bugs don't even die after crawling through spray. Wish I could get my money back.
