Does this kill odorous house ants??

We can't get rid of the odorous house ants we have and are trying to find something will kill those in particular. We get them every summer and usually pay an exterminating company to spray, but wanted to try saving some money this summer and do it ourselves. They're the small black ants that have a poison-like smell to them when crushed. My grandfather always called them "p*ss ants" when we were growing up, because they have an ammonia smell to them when killed (like cat urine almost). After hiring an exterminator, we found out they were called Odorous House Ants, and are very hard to get rid of. Even the exterminators had problems getting rid of them, so we switched to a different company that charged us $400 to do an extensive "fog" outside around the house to get rid of them, which worked great and we were ant free last year. However, they're back, and with all the rain we're having, it's running them inside the house. All my neighbors are having issues as well. I'm hoping this will work and save us at lease $300 this summer. I've got a big problem with slugs in my yard as well, so I'll be on the hunt next for something that will kill those too.

Ant Shield 1 gal. Ready-to-Use Insect Killer is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 14.

The label reads, "Spectracide Ant Shield Insect Killer Ready-to-Use kills ants* and other listed pests on contact, and keeps on killing for up to 9 months indoors." The * points to a list of ant species, which includes big-headed ants. After spraying the edges of the laundry room and really dousing some cracks where ants were entering and exiting, the big-headed ants continue to thrive. Hours later I don't see any dead ants, although I sprayed directly on ants that were walking around. A day later the ants are as active as ever. I don't see how the active ingredient, Lambda-Cyhalothrin, has any effect on big-headed ants.

The hose that connects to the sprayer is about 4 inches long. Not long enough to actually spray an area without putting the bottle on the ground or really without tipping it somewhat forward to reach. When you tip the product spills for the bottle opening. Just a mess -- if the hose was longer totally different story; although the product should not spill (pour) out of top if tipped slightly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Getting ants before they get us Spectracide ant shield worked great. Any ants that was there when I spayed were dead on contact. I've used other kinds but this seemed to work great. I will buy it again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to work! I used the Ready to Use Ant Shield Insect Killer firstly in our garage. Then I used it inside our home living area. We are often not around for extended times and "daddy long legs" appear unexpectedly. After spraying, they and some carpender ants who also are a problem in our area disappeared! I then sprayed the corner areas in our basement where those same pesky spiders could be found. All look to have been eliminated through the home. The only issue I found was that the no smell spray caused me to start coughing extensively. I did have windows open but, I still had a problem with that! When applying the spray, just don't have others/pets around for a short while till the spray dries.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from USELESS PRODUCT Spectracide Ant Shield is completely useless; at least when its intended use is to kill carpenter ants. After repeated surface treatment with no noticeable effect on ant behavior, I applied the product directly to the ants using an eye dropper. After casually wiping their antennae free of the liquid, they continued on their appointed rounds with no ill effect. Raid Ant and Roach killer by contrast results in immediate neurological toxicity upon contact, whether it be spray or surface contact. The only problem with the Raid product is that it has limited residual effect. I have concluded that the name Ant Shield must refer to its properties of protecting ants from harm.
