Kills Big Roaches
Had to spray a couple big roaches. One died quickly the other barely escaped into a hole in the wall that I didn't know existed. I sprayed extra into the opening at the wall. I wake up 2 days later to find more dead roaches in the middle of the floor who must have walked through that hole. Still potent days later after it dried up. It's got my approval.

    Worked immediately & even 1 month later
    This stuff works great! We keep a big cardboard box inside of our garage for recycling & even after washing the box out with a hose every few days, we had a big ant problem. One day last month, after the box dried once again, I sprayed the box and the floor perimeter near the box with this Black Flag ant & Roach Killer. We have not had one ant since then! The scent isn't as overpowering as other sprays I've used in the past. This is the best ant killer around. I've recommended it to neighbors & they've had success in ridding their homes of ants too.

    Kills Bugs Dead!
    As the title suggests, this does not have a strong insecticide odor, and the smell dissipates quickly. More importantly, it kills bugs quickly. We used this for ants on the patio and it worked very well. We have lots of bugs in Florida all year-round, so we keep a can of this product handy indoors and out. Does not leave a greasy residue but does provide ongoing protection.

    Good ant killer
    Used this on ant beds on the patio. It did kill the ants that were on the surface and I didn't see any more for a few days. Then after that some of them came back again but not as many as before. I'm hoping it kills those also. It did have a very strong spray that covered a lot of area. Looking forward to using it on more ant beds in the yard and those that crawl into the house.

    Does the job!
    Black Flag has always been a leader in the ant and roach spray business, and this helps keep up the tradition. It really kills those ugly roaches quick, and says it will last for up to 3 months, which is good for my outside garden shed, where roaches tend to live and come out this time of year. And the water-base makes it easier to clean off any overspray from your skin! I sprayed them last week and there is no evidence of them so far. It looks like the claims may be proven. We will see later this summer.

    kills ants
    Since we have come to Florida, Where every day is like Saturday and Summer never ends, we have discovered a slight down side to life here. Because there is no winter to speak of , the bugs do not take the winter off as they did up north. Ants are busily getting into every nook and cranny to eat and spoil and some even will bite you. My wife reacts to fire ant bites and so do a couple of the young ones we have running around.. So we want something that rids us of the pests without making anyone sick or making a big mess, it doesn't even smell bad. This seems to do the trick and we are happy with it.
